Title: TV: Should I watch "Frontline" or "Flash Gordon?"
Post by: 230RN on July 11, 2018, 07:05:55 AM
Should I have watched this from our local PBS channel?

Frontline: Trump's Takeover.
Inside President Trumpís high-stakes battle for control of the Republican party. How Trump attacked fellow Republicans and used inflammatory rhetoric that rallied his base and further divided the country in his first year as president.

I suspected there would be too much inflammatory rhetoric and speculative inyourendo.  As in, y'know, like, that was all bad stuff he was doing.

Decided to watch this instead:

Movie Flash Gordon: The Deadly Ray From Mars
Movie

Sci-Fi, 1938.

KWGN-TV3 (Ch:2-3) 3:00 am (120 Mins)


Prettier girls, clear definition of who the bad guys are, less inflammatory rhetoric.

Good choice, eh what?

I'd watch GILLIGAN'S ISLAND  before I'd watch Frontline.   Other than that,  I'd prefer Buck Rogers.   [tinfoil]

Funny how legacy media doesn't say such things about the people that keep making inflammatory claims about the GOP. I guess charging the President with racism, and claiming that the next SCOTUS justice will strip half the country of their rights, is not at all divisive.

Accusations are cheap.

Defense is expensive.

Well-known technique.

Terry, I'm just curious.

It's 3 lines.

What did you have to come back to, less than 24 hours later, to edit?   =D

Changed "Allegations" to "Accusations."

Decided it sounded stronger.  I edit interminably, sometimes right up to the editing time-out.  I try not to edit something of mine that someone's quoted but sometimes I screw up on that account.

I will also edit even the slightest typo whenever I spot it.

Modifying or Deleting a Post
To modify a post, select the Modify link or the Modify inline.gif icon and make your changes. Most forums are likely to be configured to show the date and time of the last edit, but the administrator(s) may also allow a short period of time to elapse before this happens.

To delete a post, select the Remove button followed by OK from the Remove this message? box that will appear. Some forums may also allow you to remove topics or polls that you start, but the buttons for these are usually at the bottom of the page. It is not possible for a user to remove their first post in a new thread if replies have been posted.

It is up to your forum's administrator to set the permissions that determine who will be allowed to Modify and Delete posts, and for how long after making the original post.

OK, but I think the question that developed was how long that period is here on APS, starting from this post:

There's an edit time-out?

Me, I just keep editing until the "Modify" button goes away.  I never paid specific attention as to how long that took.

Maybe it's just a count to a maximum number of edits, I don't know.

Door creaks open from disuse...

Okay, which box is it in.....hmm, that looks like never been opened...so that's not it..., nor, that one, nor the one underneath that one...not that one either..
maybe over here in this stack.  UGH!!! Jamis stash your handicapped, midget, dead hooker in the cloud or somewhere else, UGH.  That's just nasty, nasty stuff.

Maybe over here in this drawer....Nope, that full of spammers trying to get in. Nor this draw, it's full of banned spammers.

What about over here in this corner..... Hey, I haven't seen that in long time.  cool....

What was the question again ?
