Oh man, The Truman Show is fantastic. My go-to re-watchable film is Hook. I haven't been able to watch it lately though because I get so depressed remembering that Robin Williams is gone.

This article makes me so angry. I feel so awful for these scientists and for us as a planet. Unfortunately, my dad, who is a scientist himself (not a climatologist, but a neuroscientist) is one of the many people who consistently calls climate change utter bs and says that anyone who studies it and devotes their life to it is wasting their time and/or is not a "real scientist." I don't even know how to discuss it with him because he is so dismissive. It's a sad day when various parts of our society refuse to listen to important topics like this one.

I completely and totally agree, although I have a soft spot for Hamlet because I feel like Horatio and I would be great friends. Haha.

Are you me? It's been 7 years since I graduated from high school and I can still recite this entire soliloquy from memory. Powerful stuff.

Oh my god! I love this show! Bernard is my spirit animal.

I'm probably going to be the only person here that posts this, but The Paradise. I became way too involved in the lives of the main characters. I'm not even a huge fan of department stores, so I was frankly shocked that I watched it all the way through. This is what happens when you become addicted to Netflix.

I 'm finally getting around to reading the second book in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. I'm loving it so far!

Oh man, enjoy! I loved that series. Sci-fi at its best.

Unfortunately, sometimes not even passion can trump the duties you don't like doing every day. :(

Wow, this article hit home.

"A common personality type is a person who is deeply emotional and thoughtful and who tends to throw themselves wholeheartedly into their endeavors. 'True believers' who then lose their faith feel more anger and depression and grief than those who simply went to church on Sunday." That is exactly how I felt when I lost my religion. And it's why I will never ever force religion on anyone, especially children.

Whoa, so cool! Props for putting this together! You can also add me to vocalist, if you would like. :)

I was once very idealistic about politics. I sometimes reach that point again, particularly when I think about voting for Bernie Sanders. Unfortunately, hearing everyone close to me say that he doesn't have a chance to win in the primaries brings me back to that discouraged state.

I became a democratic socialist after a lot of personal education, as well as hearing the thoughts of my incredibly Tea Party conservative parents vs. my extremely liberal high school teachers, and then college professors. I've seen both extremes and eventually decided on my political views after a lot of thought. Ironically, I'm still a registered Republican because when I left home, I tried to change my political affiliation to Democrat, but my dad got to the mail first and threw my letter in the trash. Ah well. I live in Ohio now, so I'm planning on switching parties at the DMV soon! :)

What about you, jleopold?
