Here’s the latest from the Overnight Underground,
Buttigieg is in the drivers seat in New Hampshire, wait can we say that on the radio, oh yea, we’re not on the radio, we can almost say any damn thing we want. Well, Pete won in Iowa, that part is official, so the presidential hopeful is the target of ire of all the other candidates as they tussle in New Hampshire. Joe Biden got caught in a moment of splender where he called a New Hampshire Voter ‘A LYING, DOG-FACED PONY SOLDIER’, whatever the hell that is. And the Hill says the chances of a brokered convention are inching closer where some dark horse candidate or, god forbid, we get stuck with Hillary again. Say it ain’t so.
Perhaps the pressure is getting to him. On Sunday, Joe Biden snapped at a voter in New Hampshire, calling her a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier.” The dust-up came after the voter asked Biden, “How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe that you can win a national election?”
Coronavirius is still making headlines, with thousands finally being released from a cruise ship off Hong Kong after being given the all clear following testing. The quarantined cruise ship off Japan had diagnosed dozens of new coronavirus cases, including more ‘mercans. So what’s it like to be quarantined on a cruise ship? One passenger told CNBC, (byte) Sounds like a fun vacation. China also just set the record for one day coronavirus deaths, inching toward the century mark for the first time, at 97. There are now over forty thousand confirmed cases.
Thousands of people stuck on a cruise ship in Hong Kong for four days have been allowed to disembark after tests for coronavirus came back negative. Some 3,600 passengers and crew on the World Dream ship were quarantined amid fears some staff could have contracted the virus on a previous voyage.
A California passenger aboard the Diamond Princess told CNBC on Monday it “can be a little bit depressing” when thinking about how much longer he and his wife must remain on the quarantined cruise ship: likely nine more days.
The Oscars, what can you say? A room full of rich white people, some of whom may or may not have some talent, being very sad and guilty for being white people. Just take Joaquin Phoenix for example. He won an Oscar for best something, and after watching his acceptance speech it appears that he was essentially playing himself in the film Joker. Can you really call “acting” like an unhinged idiot in front of a camera, when it appears to come naturally, acting. (byte) I think what he’s trying to say here is that you are evil for drinking milk. I’m sorry, but Hollywood is just out of their fucking minds. Phoenix definitely wins the award for the most self righteous hollywood twit ever. As opposed to taking on big milk, maybe she should have taken on big pharma. Cause it looked to me like he needs to be on some serious meds.
Gather hundreds of entertainment-industry types in a room and allow them speeches months before a presidential election, and discussion of politics is bound to ensue – as it did at Sunday night’s Academy Awards. The first political commentary of the evening came during Steve Martin and Chris Rock’s opening monologue, where Martin recalled the famous best picture category mishap in 2017.
Speaking of drugs, you can now get a degree in weed. Newsweek reports that Colorado State University-Pueblo will soon offer a sheepskin in cannabis. The course will be available for undergraduates looking to study the science needed to succeed in the cannabis industry, or who just want to get baked and good grades while attending college. What you got here is more future unpaid student debt for a useless degree, or as Bernie calls it, Monday.
Colorado State University-Pueblo is set to offer a “rigorous” degree in cannabis, winning state approval for the program on Friday. According to The Denver Post, the “Cannabis, Biology and Chemistry” course will be available for undergraduates wishing to study the science needed to succeed in the cannabis industry, starting this fall.
