Oh crap, tomorrow is voting day in my province. I guess I'll have to leave the house.
I hope Trump wins. After 8 years he definitely can’t come back.I'm so excited for the result of the US election.
As a Brit I don't have a right to make comments on American politics but: I sincerely hope Donald Trump is utterly decimated. He signifies the worst of what this generation of western society has given us. Yes, okay, he wasn't super-special Hitler evil by any stretch, but he is a demonstrably not nice human being, and his election just lit the afterburner on rampant right wing populism, hatred and ignorance in an already painful post-2008 society (and since us Brits have a common language with America, we have been greatly influenced by it too). I can't fucking wait for him to go. I don't even care that sleepy Joe Biden appears to be basically the Democrat version of George Bush - a useless idiot. At least it will signify a return to boring politics as usual, and will hopefully let society come together again in some way. I'm just fucking sick of political populism.
Ha, yeah that's a fair point.I hope Trump wins. After 8 years he definitely can’t come back.
Yeah, I’m thinking he won’t win this time though. In 2016, he was extremely bold and knocked out 15 or 16 Republicans despite not even being the same as them at all. He completely wiped the floor with them. Hillary Clinton was easy to beat.Ha, yeah that's a fair point.
I don't think it would bode well for society though. This is my screaming inner lefty doing the talking here, but from experience I can say that "just a little bit more" of any right wing government just results in utter ruination. The UK is in its tenth year of Conservative leadership and the nation has undergone irreversible damage, at the social and political level. Literally nothing has improved since 2010. Oh, unless you're in the top 1%. Cliched to say it these days, but they are the only folk who have done well. Sad indeed. Fuck modern right wing politics.
This is just a thought. Did I hear you say you don't know what to say to them to get your feelings across? Maybe this is an unnecessary idea if they are leaving anyway but ... what about preparing a list of written questions? Call it a quiz they have to pass or fail. Numbering them and handing them to each? Act as of this is an amusing joke for you. I don't know what the questions would be ... just my intuition. These are not questions you would ask face-to-face."HE'S A DEADWEIGHT ON YOUR LIFE!", but I don't know how to say it because my brother doesn't seem that unhappy overall.
That sounds like the most passive aggressive, awkward thing I could possibly do in this situation.This is just a thought.

1. How do like being here?
2. What do you think of me?
3. Do you think I like you here?
4. Do you like the color of my couch?
5. What do you do during the day?
6. What are your plans for tomorrow?
Maybe some of these are strong. Weaken them a bit.
I was stuck at home and so was my mother and brother. I basically learned that being home is nice, only when I am alone. Home itself isn’t enough.Hello my INTP comrades, I was just reading random INTP articles and came across one that suggested joining an INTP forum to help with boredom/ loneliness (I'd put myself somewhere between the two, maybe just lacking stimulating conversation) so I thought I'd come back to personality cafe and have a gander.
Apparently I joined this site while I was living in China, cuz that's where it says I am and I don't know how to change (not sure I care enough to).
Anyway, I like this thread. Once I remember what I came here to post in the first place, I will post it.
p.s. anyone else's life not change that drastically during the pandemic? 😅
