Posted in: A new 'Trump.' SNL's Johnson attracts attention for mimicry See in context

His impersonation of Trump was one of the best I have seen and I like Alec Baldwin's impersonation too. A tweet by Preet Bharara where he said this was the best impersonation ever drew my attention to the SNL opening skit.

SNL has it's hits and misses with it's skits and crews. I have been watching the show on and off since it first aired during the 70's. I thought Pete Davidson's "Chad" skit with Miley Cyrus and Elon Musk where he was trying to save Space X's Mars habitat was hilarious. There are skits that have fallen flat but I will continue to watch the show whenever I can with the assistance of a VPN.

Posted in: Dean Stockwell of 'Quantum Leap,' 'Blue Velvet' dies at 85 See in context

The white Dr. Yueh in David Lynch's "Dune"! I will always remember Dean Stockwell in David Lynch's "Blue Velvet" and from "Battlestar Galactica", one of my favorite sci-fi series. Haven't seen "Paris, Texas" but will make an effort to watch it this weekend. RIP Mr. Stockwell. You will be missed.

"The joker wore an orangish red suit. This is purple. Maybe Yoshikage Kira?"

I believe you're right. My coworker pointed out that this was Yoshikage Kira's outfit in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. JoJo's and the stabber's patterned ties and jacket resemble one another.

Not enough experience to detect the nuances between the languages but there are striking similarities with Okinawan and Taiwanese architecture (clay tile roofs and ohakas) along with ancient Chinese clothing. I could see the common elements between Okinawa and Taiwan from my trips to Taiwan from Okinawa.

Posted in: Vaccine mandates in U.S. create conflict with defiant workers See in context

Buh bye! Portugal has transitioned from the pandemic stage to the endemic stage because 100% of adults over 50 are vaccinated. The US will never reach the endemic stage if people continue to place politics and half-baked conspiracies over science. Everyone in my office is fully vaccinated. We were all vaccinated as soon as the vaccine was made available.

"Close to 100% of people over the age of 50 have received at least one vaccine dose, according to the Portuguese government. For those between the ages of 25 and 49 it is 95% and from 12 to 17 it is 88%. Some 89% of Portugal’s entire population of 10 million has had at least one vaccine dose, not far behind the rate in the world-leading United Arab Emirates, compared with 65% in the U.S. and 73% in the U.K., according to Oxford University’s Our World in Data."

Posted in: Singapore expands quarantine-free travel for vaccinated passengers See in context

"Seems like a reasonable method. Slightly surprised that Japan isn't included with most of that population vaccinated now."

I was wondering the same since Japan's fully vaccinated rate (67.70%) is higher than the U.S. (56.28%), Britain (66.53%), France (67.23%), and the Netherlands (67.58%). There are quite a few Japanese companies based in Singapore as well.
