A Thought Experiment
 
Suppose it is eight years ago. Everything is the same as it was then, except the Ukraine/quid pro quo impeachment situation is happening to Pres. Obama. Same allegations, same evidence, same whistle blower, same everything but it involves Obama and not Trump. Pres.

OK? Have you got it?
 
I ask you Pro-Trumpers: Are you going to claim this is all a waste of time and some kind of a witch hunt after Obama?

A Dimland Radio ARGH! The Dead Bodies Podcast And Constant Interruptions

I recently stopped listening to the Dead Bodies Podcast, a true crime podcast originating in Australian, hosted by journalists Dee Dee Dunleavy and Sharnelle Vella. I just got fed up.

A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment Bonus: First Darth Vader Cosplay

I did refrain from pointing out he typo.

This moment takes place after the show close, so keep listening or go back and listen if you missed it.

 
I realized I ended the show a couple minutes early so I crammed in another Pedantic Moment. In this moment, I refute the claim in the above image that the cosplayer only had his memories of the original Star Wars film in 1977 to go by when making his costume.
 
Well, I list a few other sources he could have gone to in those dark days before the internet.
