2 pointsI've never seen them as anything but just friends. They're a puppet version of the odd couple, who weren't gay either.
1 pointI am. Because for them to get here, it means a very large amount of physics that has been proven is wrong. Stuff that has made predictions, been tested, found to have results that matched those predictions - that kind of proven. And we're not just talking about one or two fringe bits either - we're talking about the stuff that made the moon shot and makes GPS satellites, cellphones, and computers work.
1 pointhttps://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/10/arts/sesame-street-karli-addiction.html theyre right. children need to learn about "traumatic events". but are they going far enough? i think B & E should get engaged, but the marriage is postponed when Bert develops a terrible illness. Ernie stays by his bedside through thick and thin, and even thinner, but sadly Bert doesnt pull through. when Bert's life support machine goes off the room is plunged into darkness, leaving only the silhouette of Ernie against a dim rectangle of light seeping in from the drawn blinds behind him. the camera tightens on him as he falls forward, cradling his head in hands that are still clutching the power cord. suddenly, the blinds are yanked open. its Mick Jagger, with a tambourine, climbing in from the fire escape. Ernie and Mick sing an adagio duet of "You can't always get what you want" to camera. finally Mick announces, "Today's episode was brought to you by the letter 'A' for assisted suicide". roll credits.
1 pointweirdly enough, in my case, i just shrugged, walked back inside, and then didnt mention it to anyone for months. not because i was worried about waxing loony. i just kind of forgot! consciously, i think that was because, in the moment, i was resigned to the fact that no further information would be forthcoming. so there was nothing to be gained by thinking about it. subconsciously too, its in our nature to have blind spots. just like the literal blind spots where our optic nerves block our retinas. your brain just smooths over incompatible information it cant use. if something is maximally incongruous, i think we have a very strong reflex to move on like it never happened
