    My junior high/high school science teacher was an anomaly. He used to go on long rants about how the continents never shifted, and the Earth has always looked this way. He also used to whine about how the "man" "forced" him to teach about evolution. He used to have us take notes as he wrote on an overhead projector, and when it came time to talk about the origin of man, he would real quick write "Creationism", and briefly say that "some people believed in it, but he wasn't allowed to teach that it happened". And every time, I rolled my eyes, groaned loudly, and refused to write it in my notebook. He knew better than to bait me, because I was that asshole kid who would go tell my overbearing liberal mom about it, and no one at that school was real thrilled when she came down to bitch about something.

    This forum has a Facebook page and there are 56 followers. Nobody has posted anything since August though. I wonder if there’s a way to get those people engaged here?

    I had pretty much completely forgotten our Facebook page, Seeker.

    Here is Alex's link to it...

    https://www.imdforums.com/threads/our-official-facebook.322/


    I too miss the old names who used to post here. Would be nice to see them make a return - or some new voices to take over in their absence, just to add to the mix.

    I “liked” it and wrote something there. They asked me to write why I would recommend it and I did. I wonder who will see it. I wonder if I should post anything there.

    Every bit helps, I guess, Seeker. I just moved Alex's post/Link to the INTRODUCTIONS AND WELCOME and stickied it......

    https://www.imdforums.com/forums/introductions-welcome.139/

    ........ so that non-members will also be able to see the Facebook post and link now, whereas only joined up members could see it before. That should hopefully up the FB traffic a bit.

    Thank you!

    And you’re right about Iowa, I mean it’s barely a year away now. Another one is New Hampshire. The interesting thing about New Hampshire is that they have some of the most laid back rules for Write in candidates in the country, so that could help out a lot!

    Mad_Monster_Party I was wondering about you. You probably don't remember but I wanted to be your campaign manager but on the old IMDb boards. Hope you are doing well and you still have my vote!

    Hulu doesn’t have Soylent Green, and you have to pay for it on that ripoff service Amazon Prime.

    Like I said, it's terrible trying to find anything resembling classic film on the streaming services, unless you pay for one that specializes in them. I think Criterion is setting up or has set up a service to stream movies in their collection (would be worth it for the Kurosawa films alone), but I don't have the cash. And while I agree that Amazon Prime is a ripoff, I do like the opportunity to purchase or rent movies or shows on their that aren't on their Prime list. I'm looking into getting Brit Box on there. I think you can also get Shudder through them, for cheaper than you would pay for the service otherwise (so much horror...).
