Dwight's Drug Investigation - The Office US by davidtho in television

Always felt like Oscar was giving his co-workers too much credit with this line. Jim, Pam, and Toby are all mental in their own ways.

Oscar is the only actual straight man in the main cast.

Jim and Pam are just as crazy as Dwight for trolling him all the time. Meredith is low key vicious. Toby is creepy as hell, and fails in his job as an HR rep by being so passive and useless.

Oscar is the only sane person there.

I agree that this is often the case (and it wouldn't surprise me if it's the case with OP given the "weirdo lol"), but I don't think you can just assume it always is. Sometimes they're genuinely afraid of what the consequences of setting boundaries might be, or are just the type of person that feels awkward and guilty ignoring anyone.

If Kirby eats a person with cancer, does he get cancer or does he get the powers of cancer/to give people cancer. by Juanathan54 in NoStupidQuestions

Nor would he gain the ability to give it to people, unless the person he ate could give it to people.

Exactly. He wouldn't be forced to have cancer, but he also wouldn't gain the ability to give it to others either (unless the person he ate had somehow been able to spread it to others). He would gain the option of exercising that person's ability... which was to have cancer.

He gains the abilities of the beings that he consumes. When he swallows a knight, he doesn't gain the ability to give people swords. He gains the ability to wield one.

So, he would gain the ability to have cancer... and probably choose not to exercise it.

Patriots full regular season schedule, according to Jeff Howe. Open against Texans. Face Lions, Colts, and Bills on primetime. by douglasmacarthur in Patriots

They might just because most teams that win 12+ games without Brady or Peyton do. But they're no more likely to than any other good team.

Minnesota has averaged 10.67 wins over the last three seasons. Last year wasn't really an outlier. They probably won't win 13 games again because most teams don't but they're as consistent as any NFC team has been.

That said, I agree that schedule difficulty is hard to predict either way and that we'll still be successful.

For me and obviously for a lot of people if these threads you're complaining about / condescending to keep popping up.

It's a pretty tough schedule. @MIA and @NYJ is always close, and HOU/JAX/DET/KC/MIN/PIT are all teams I could see us losing to. I think we'll be just as good as the last few seasons but it wouldn't shock me if we "only" win 10-12 games.

Whatever happened to the days when we praised shows and their actors for the entertainment and joy that they give us when we watch them?

This show stopped generating entertainment and joy.

This is the Sharks. Kyle Shanahan held the door open for us. We can absolutely still blow this series.

WHY DO THEY HAVE KYLE SHANAHAN HOLDING THE DOOR OPEN?

DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT HE DOES WITH MASSIVE PLAYOFF LEADS?

Ruin what? Tom Brady had a secret marriage to Stormy Daniels under an alternate identity.

I'd go 10 minutes of 4on4 then 10 minutes of 3on3 then a tie. Ties (or even 3on3) would exist but be really rare. Coaches would also be more aggressive because they know there is little chance of holding out for the tie.

If he'd given HRC a 95%+ chance I'd say that deserves some accountability but iirc by election night it was like 65%, and everyone else was mocking him for setting it that low.

[Aaron Rodgers] I feel like the title of this article needs more click bait. Come on GBP, make something up, or talk to some unnamed sources close to me or something to beef up the clicks. by ValKilmsnipsinBatman in nfl

[–]douglasmacarthur 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I have never liked when people attack him for not talking to his family. We have no idea why he made that decision. Many people have toxic, abusive families and you have just as much of a right to distance yourself from people related to you as from anyone else.

You're a cringe terrorist. Your goal is to make people cringe as much as possible. How do you do it? by Berniceta in AskReddit

Yeah children or old people would have an awkwardly endearing effect. Someone middle aged trying to be hip would be the worst.
