Sport. Got stuck at one of 2 tables people sat at from my course on Monday night and the rest of the table proceeded to talk about hurling.
I sat there thinking it was rude to leave, for several minutes, then got up and moved to other table and instantly found conversation interesting.

Does mean I'm less fit than I should be probably though. Used to dance quite frequently until I moved too far out of town to get home easily from wahtever clubs

I think I have a thing in my brain that just tunes out sport talk the moment it happens. If sport comes up in conversation or on telly all I hear is "blahblahblahblah" MAybe if I didn't have this handy cerebral device I might learn something, but sadly it's there to stay.

I care enough to make various ecstatic + flip dodgy comments about him being a paedo that lives with his mother and is on benefits. But I wouldn't listen to the fucken interview if you paid me, pal!

Prince Andrew interview.

Is this just a subset of generally not caring about the British royal family, or its own specific not-caring?

I don't care abut the royals generally but I think this is a distinctive kind of not caring. Non-royalist Twitter seems very interested in the interview.

Alba, Sunday, 17 November 2019 01:04 (three weeks ago) link

I care enough about the Royal Family to fervently hope for their destruction but, other than that, I don't have any interest in watching an interview with some worthless rich moron trying to cover their back.

it's fine to not care about it before you hear the details of the interview or watch it at which point it's not-okay to not-care about it.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Sunday, 17 November 2019 02:37 (three weeks ago) link

If you watched it then posting that you don't care about it seems like you don't care about abuse. If you didn't watch it it seems like the same but you are telling people that you don't care about the abuse you didn't hear about. Neither stance is a good stance, alba ffs.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Sunday, 17 November 2019 02:47 (three weeks ago) link

& it's nothing to do with royalists. It's to do with not aligning yourself with a clear abuser.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Sunday, 17 November 2019 02:50 (three weeks ago) link

to be clear - this is a very bad thing to make a public (ilx is public) statement about "not caring" about it.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Sunday, 17 November 2019 02:52 (three weeks ago) link

sorry to go on but publically stating that you don't care about this is not good. try to take yourself out of the internet bubble for a bit.

cryborg (rip van wanko), Sunday, 17 November 2019 05:35 (three weeks ago) link

If you watched it then posting that you don't care about it seems like you don't care about abuse.

that "seems" is doing a lot of heavy lifting here.

If there's more to be gained from watching the interview than watching the him unconvincingly deny Virginia Giuffre's testimony it hasn't felt that way from the coverage (either on Twitter or from the media reports I've seen)

No worries. A 3am jed special. Apologies if I sounded like I was dismissing the whole case.

There is something weird about this Mr. Rogers revival. Seeing Hanks in the trailer in the makeup and garb, it just looks very very creepy & I won't go near that film

There's nothing weird about the Mr. Rogers revival, really, imo. It's an attempt at course correction, people seeking a sane and centered alternative to the extremes gnawing at the edges of our everyday.

The Tom Hanks movie, though, is def weird, I'll grant you.

Judging by social media, I care far less about viral videos of humans risking their lives to save animals than many of my friends. In fact, I guess I do care insofar as I find this idiotic behavior rather than heart-warming.
