Hey John, maybe time for a new episode on censorship. Youtube deletes comments with the words 五 and 毛 together =)
Oh man, this show without the background laughter is as bad as The Big Bang Theory without a laugh track. I can't imagine being in 2020 and still thinking you are anti-establishment, while watching Viacom talking heads.

Has someone already made the Lord Farquaad meme comment? I’m going to assume someone has but say it anyway. “Some of you may die … but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.”

Spit balling here, being on a carrier keeps you contained with only the pass of supplies by the merchant marine. Yes, sometimes you miss important events. But, if done with care a bubble system can work

16:50 if sports didn't come back, I'd be fine with it. I admire the Olympics, but the other sports are just entertainment. Let's get in e-sports going if people really want entertainment - Marble runs - cool!

Trump's self-awareness finally kicks in when he realizes during a pandemic press conference that he just told voters that he has been watching rerun baseball games on TV instead of DOING HIS FUCKING JOB. You know, the job he said Obama never did, because he was too busy playing golf.

Ok that's it. That Adam Driver bit is now so overused, lame and annoying that I can't take the writers of this show as serious comedians. This show is still a good news show but as a far as comedy goes, it's not just going downhill, it has already reached the trough. I just have to unsubscribe at this point!

Vince McMahons head doesn’t look like it belongs with that body. Like his head is obviously too small and tanned to go with that super wide pinstripe torso, like a reverse Pez dispencer.

Elon Musk went on Joe Rogan saying covid19 is ten timeless dangerous than what is being said and that people should be capable of doing what they want because freedom blablabla. Like a guy said there, he cant play with his rockets without his workers. He might be going mad.

Testing capacities are not at their limit here in Germany, which is one reason why the Bundesliga (Highest Soccer League in Germany) has resumed its competition without audience in the stadiums last week, with german basketball soon to follow. For these leagues, continuing without viewers makes more sense financially than not playing at all, and they have a testing and quarantine system in place quite similar to what Dr. Fauci suggested. Still, it's important to keep in mind that many leagues, for example the handball and ice hockey main leagues in germany, rely heavily on audience revenue because they do not earn as much from TV rights, so they are, to put it mildl,y absolutely screwed right now.
