  2. So what did we do? Well we stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacations on the Las Vegas Strip. Realistically, it's at the northern edge of the strip next to Circus Circus. The good thing was it was a smoke free hotel. But the food options were pathetic and slow. They did have a surprisingly nice spa that I got to use for a few hours. The pool was good for kids. There was also a Deuce Bus stop right in front of the hotel so that was useful. Dinners at a Brazilian steakhouse, Noodle Bar (chinese) at Sahara, pizza at Happy Camper, and a few meals at the new Fontainebleau food court since it was across the street. We also did Mexican one night but I can't remember the restaurant. Cirque du Soleil Mystere at Treasure Island Easter Brunch at the Wynn La Cave Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay Fun Dungeon arcade at Excalibur (crap prizes) NY NY arcade - good prizes but not that great of an arcade and the Rollercoaster was down that day because it was raining Coke Store - my son walked in and said I need some merch! He cracks me up. Got him a Tervis tumbler. The fancy drinks were broken, so it was kind of worthless. Hershey's Store - not that great, overpriced bulk Hershey's kisses and nothing too unique. The best part is getting a milkshake. Pool time - E is skinny and got cold easily. It was not that warm of a week. Adventuredome at Circus Circus. We did this the last day since we had to check out of the hotel at 11 and our flight wasn't until 9. This was probably my kids favorite activity. E is getting braver at riding Circus type rides, Q is a Rollercoaster junky but ate too much crap so she didn't feel that great. The buffet at Circus Circus is cheap but not that impressive (but my kids essentially got a home-cooked meal so that was a good thing). The arcade was also better than Fun Dungeon or NYNY, so it was a win. I pumped $40 into the stupid Minecraft Dungeons arcade game and E walked away happy. We got to watch a juggler and a clown during one of their hourly shows, so that was kind of fun too. Overall it was a good trip, and everyone had fun.

  3. My dad drove to Fredericksburg, Texas to watch it. He doesn't think he will be alive in 20 years for the next one. The 2017 one was total in his hometown and it was going good and then clouds rolled in at the last second. He was so disappointed. This time he got the view, barely. When he sends pictures I will share them. As for Seattle, we only had 20% totality, and clouds anyway. I didn't notice a thing.

  5. Tidal wave came by, in Indiana, and wiped us all out. Jedigoat = killed by the eclipse. Haha, kidding ya frigging idiots! I didn't die from a tidal wave. We had almost 4 minutes of totality. Pretty cool. The geese didn't know what the fuck was going on. But then again, yeah, they're geese.

  6. Indeed, it's very hard to argue for continuing to supply weapons and money to the Israelis on the basis of "saving" lives, after Gaza has literally been flattened and 32,000+ Palestinians are dead, especially when about 13,000 were children. By contrast, Israel lost 1200 people on OCT 7, so their response is beyond disproportionate. Also, how many of the 250 hostages has Israel rescued? Something like 112 were released, I believe, which is less than half, but only 3 were rescued by the IDF. Gaza, Hamas or no, has no way of defending itself, let alone invading anyone. What Netan-Yahoo is doing is nothing less than genocide. It is one thing if Israel had took out only Hamas command centers and other Hamas sites and equipment, but bombing civilians and aide workers is inexcusable. Not to mention the nonsense going on in the West bank, and let's not forget the Damascus bombings that threaten to wided the war with Iran possibly jumping in, too. I WAS in Israel's corner at first when the OCT 7 attacks occured, but since then, Israel has long since crossed a red line for me. I can't support them getting more arms and funds from the US, if this is how they want to fight a war.

  7. Assuming you can afford it, lawyer up anyway. It's not going to stop. They're being absolutely fucking ridiculous at this point. Is her therapist willing to testify to her overall stress level and emotional state? I would also yank her out and homeschool anyway. But I know it's not as easy as it sounds since you both work full time and all. But seriously, fuck these people.

  8. At what point will the world draw a redline and intervene? He's already leveled Gaza, murdered 30,000 civilians, targeting aid workers, children, medical professionals and the red cross. He's only allowed aid in due to diplomatic pressure, and even then not enough is getting in. There is now a famine in Gaza, totally man made. Check out the holodomor of Ukraine 1932 to see the results of that in a historical context. Now any ceasefire that is happening is a pause for him to launch a ground offensive in Raffah. Strikes into Lebanon and Syria. Shall we wait until there are concentration camps for refugees established, mass executions and incursions into the West Bank? Where is the line? No. Let's the United Kingdom and USA keep selling arms to Netanyahu and keep the war machine running while simultaneously distancing ourselves publicly from Netanyahu and saying "we need more aid to get through". The UK and the US is playing limp wristed appeasement to this psychopathic fuck and the situation is only getting worse every day.

  9. You're missing the point. Hezbollah doesn't want war with Israel. But if Israel continually makes further incursions into Lebanon then Israel will force the hand of Hezbollah to retaliate. Ergo, any Hezbollah invasion would be a direct consequence of Israel's actions. They're bringing it on themselves. Ideally, the world should be applying crippling economic sanctions to Israel and enormous diplomatic pressure to force Netanyahu to end the conflict, and they should bring the case of a two state solution to the international courts. Will this happen? I doubt it. Netanyahu seems content to do whatever he wants, international community be damned. So what is your solution? So far it seems to be continue arming the Zionists and resume the status quo. Sorry, but the status quo is genocide, and they won't stop with Gaza as we are seeing already.
