    Agreed completely on your sidenote. I'm not a motorcycle person whatsoever, but the production quality here was astounding.

    I often wonder in cases like this whether rate-limiting responses in a potentially hot thread would help. A person may be more inclined to be thorough if they know they can only make one statement a day. Or, it may allow time for additional research, or the cooling of emotions.

    This is all entirely based on my opinion, though. I don't know of any research or examples to back up this idea.

    I'm a bit old-fashioned in that I prefer buying albums to a subscription service. I transitioned from Prime music to Google Play music earlier this year, because that functionality was available, and Google Play was a little less annoying than Amazon in pestering me for a subscription.

    Would anyone be able to suggest a service where I can buy albums from artists that isn't iTunes?

    They're afraid, and I'd wager that this is the first time many of them have been helpless. This doesn't condone their actions, but I feel it helps me to see the human side of them.

    Personally, if you're a fan of the story and worldbuilding of Undertale, and you are interested in the fantasy genre at all, I wholeheartedly recommend Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. It has some interesting commentary, and it's a light read with characters that have some strong growth and development throughout both the book and the series.

    To be fair, I felt like the primary character was a pretty blank slate. I enjoyed reading about someone with such disconnection.

    I live in a somewhat red part of the US, and the pains of globalization were often brought up around the last election.

    I don't really know how I feel on the topic. While I do enjoy the prosperity that has been brought to many different parts of the world, I fear that the pace has been so fast that it may cause strife in the future, especially with the human rights issues in China, which financial windfalls may only exacerbate.
