Somehow we don’t have one of these yet.
This is the thread for murder hornets, Mr. Peanut being killed off, Sarah Palin singing “Baby Got Back” and other bizarre, inexplicable, only-in-2020 moments not covered by the other threads covering the big topics. Bonus points if they make you feel you’re in a simulation … a very, very badly written simulation.
Stories like this one:
A gunman in Ukraine armed with an automatic rifle and grenades has surrendered to police and released 13 hostages after the country’s president consented to his demand to recommend the 2005 film Earthlings starring Joaquin Phoenix.
The niche film recommendation, delivered by President Volodymyr Zelenskiy over Facebook, helped end an hours-long standoff in the western Ukrainian city of Lutsk, where 44-year-old Maksym Kryvosh seized a bus and demanded that dozens of government officials admit to being “terrorists”.
During the hostage crisis, which began on Tuesday morning, Kryvosh opened fire and threw a grenade at a police drone. The reports of automatic gunfire sent some journalists at the scene diving for cover. No one was seriously injured during the standoff, although a bullet was reported to have nearly missed the national chief of police.
