Why do English have better historical dramas than Americans?

I ate the last kebab wrap today.

So I saw this deal today to get three kebab sandwiches for the price of two. I was like, yeah it's extra but I'll put them in the fridge and eat them later. Well, after eating two I am already tired of them. It was a good deal, but they were basically just plain wrapped in bread, nothing but meat and some onion and a pickle.

@ballade @tildeverse What's going on here

@thor Looks pretty good

re: ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿญ "Tom & Jerry" (2021)
@Alexis It's on my list of things to watch

@SteveTheDragon @thor Actually the word "problematic" itself is a problem, imho

@SteveTheDragon @thor I find those people problematic

@SteveTheDragon @thor No they don't hate it, everyone accepts guys (pl)

@thor Oh yeah "you people" is for when you are being bigoted lol

@thor It is technically what the word "you" itself means, though that meaning has been lost over time. I come from a region where we say "you guys", although that's strictly plural. I think "y'all" can also be honorific, like speaking to a single person more politely, which is common in many languages.

Shavian alphabet calligraphy in a rounded black letter style of a quote from Bernard Shaw: โ€œDo not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same.โ€

Also can't stress how jingoistic and xenophobic blocking entire country ranges are? You really think "zomg Russian hackers" can't circumvent that easily with a VPN?
