  • Everyone: murder, suicide, madness and death. Or maybe just hear me out this will sound outrageous but what if they just left? Doesn't have to be a polyamorous gay relationship, but considering that morale was low it's not impossible that 1 or 2 left then the other followed, or they all left simultaneously, it's not exactly hard to vanish back then.

  • Me: Language is fake and grammar and pronunciation rules aren't real. Strict adherence to pompous rules is inherently classist andlightly xenophobic while the air of literary superiority from academics is exhausting and misplaced Also me: *listening to Ryan Bergara pronounce the words Buoy and strewn* The Lord is testing me

  • I really want Shane & Ryan to cover the disappearance of Harold Holt (Australian Prime Minister in the 1950's). He went swimming in the ocean & never returned. He probably drowned, but there are really interesting theories about sharks, or post WWII submarines. Oh, and they memorialised him with - a municipal swimming pool. 😀
