What's your criteria to consider someone as an "Intellectual person" ? 🤔 😸

zeldalink1’s Profile PhotoViolet.
- The first criteria would be that they do not say or do stupid things.
- The second criteria would be whether or not they demonstrate proficiency at something such as: sports, academics, music, art, etc.
- The third criteria involves being curious about the world they live in and whether or not they can demonstrate an aptitude or interest in solving problems such as electrical, plumbing, mechanical, mathematical, project management, financial management, interpersonal, etc. In other words, are they able to solve real world problems. In my mind, this is a yes or no answer. You either are able to solve problems or you are not able to solve problems.
- The fourth and final criteria would be defined by how well they can articulate their thoughts both verbally and in writing. Since effective communication is essential to the success of any relationship or organization, I believe it to be an essential element to be considered of sufficient intellect.

What’s your thoughts on trans competing in womens sports ?

> biological men competing in women's sports
> having numerous advantages, shattering records, etc.
> radical feminists forced to remain silent because woke
Poetic justice but for those who value fair competitive practices, they will have to ignore the current state of women's sports and look for genuine competition elsewhere.

Brides are such drama queens. The shark only ate your groom, not you. Silver linings. No need to lose it. Change my mind.

It’s HER DAY!!! (Because the groom has relinquished his rights by doing absolutely nothing in the planning of their day! He can’t be dragged away from his video game playing or sports game watching long enough to answer a simple question like what colors should we have in our wedding?)She does all the work to plan a special day with memories to last a life time because she knows how long ‘til death do us part’ really is going to be with whom she has chosen to marry!!! She wants to feel special for just one day, she knows that’s all she gets !! The very next day things start going downhill from there!! (F*CK you if you can’t take a joke!!!)

I have a sports car (I've tracked it several times), tinted the windows black, because i think it looks cool. Do you admire the commitment to a style it takes to do this to your vehicle or is it a waste of effort or?

Luv_freckles’s Profile PhotoLuv Freckles
If it is something that makes you feel happy and you like it then it's not a waste of effort, cars are obviously something that are extremely enjoyable for you so do your thing!

What is an interesting fact about your country?

England is home to one of the weirdest sports... if you can call it that lol
Cheese Rolling!
A Double Gloucester Cheese Wheel is rolled down a hill. The idea is for people to run down after it and catch it. Due to laws of gravity, it's almost impossible to catch! So whoever gets to the bottom of the hill first, wins! And they win the cheese wheel xD

If you workout, what do you do to recover afterwards? Do you eat / drink anything special, stretch etc.? 💪🍌

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Just some water. Since I left dancing and the terrible p.e. classes in the first years have ended (seriously, devils work in this department! Expect IT students of the level of masters of sports - ha!), I do only light ballet warm-ups or step. So now I don't dаmаgе myself so much that recovery is needed)

Welche Konsolen besitzt du?

ofcl_lightey’s Profile PhotoRyo
So wirklich Konsolen besitze ich nicht.
Ich habe ein Nintendo 2ds, mit welchem ich ab und an etwas spiele und das reicht mir ansich auch. :D
Wir hatten damals eine Wii (sie ist leider kaputt gegangen) und da hätte ich Lust, mir irgendwann mal eine zu kaufen, aber wer weiss, ob es wirklich dazu kommen wird. :)
An meinem Nintendo spiele ich eigentlich alles mögliche. The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Mario Kart/Party, Kirby, Miitopia, Animal Crossing, Sims, Wario ware, Terraria,...
Ich habe mir letztens Fantasy Life gekauft und das spiele ich auch so gerne. (●♡∀♡)
Ich habe ab und an auch gerade Lust es weiter zu spielen, ich habe mir allerdings in den Daumen geschnitten und das tut beim spielen ein wenig weh, weswegen ich es erstmal verheilen lasse. :3
Ansich mag ich auch Handhelden mehr, aber was weiss ich schon, die noch nie aktiv an einer konsole gespielt hat. ;D
Das Konzept einer Wii oder so manchen Switch spielen finde ich aber auch richtig cool. Ich habe damals so gerne Wii Sports gespielt, ich finde es so cool, wenn man sich wirklich so bewegen "muss". :D
Ich finde auch Vr sehr interessant, hatte aber bisher noch nicht die Möglichkeit, es wirklich auszuprobieren.

ازاي اتعافي من قصه حب فاشله ؟

الحُزن والكآبة الي هتصيبك شئ لا مفر منه بعد تجربتك الي مريتي بيها .. المشاعر السلبية أمر طبيعي بعد اي علاقة فاشلة ، خدي وقتك مع الزعل لكن خلي مشاعرك محدودة ومتحبسيش نفسك جوة زون "ما بعد العلاقة"
إعملي إعادة تقييم سلبي للطرف التاني من خلال التركيز على على صفاته السلبية زي العصبية والتسرع وأي صفات وحشة شوفتيها منه ..
متلوميش نفسك على أي حاجة حصلت في تجربتك لأنها أنتهت! ، أيا كان الي هتفكري فيه من إحتمالات أو قرارات غلط أثناء علاقتك بالطرف الآخر ف ده مش هيغير من حاجة غير أنه هيزود أحساسك بالحزن ..
أبعدي عن أي حاجة ممكن تفكرك بيه أو تعرفك أخباره سواء social أو أماكن او ناس ..
حاولي تنخرطي في اي Activity أو شغل أو sports أو أفلام .. إستراتيجية الإلهاء هتفيدك في الحد من الإجهاد الفكري ..
دي مُجرد علاقة فاشلة وده مش معناه نهاية العالم ..

À quelle fréquence est-ce que tu fais du sport ?

Currently I am partaking in competitive swimming as well as just slightly baseball. Swimming accounts for 4 days a week and baseball just one day a week. Used to be a lot bigger on baseball and play rep but am not just playing it with some friends. During rep for baseball over the summer, typically 5 days a week would include baseball whether it was a game, tournament or practice. Also wanted to get more into tennis to play with my dad again. It's been quite awhile since I last picked up a racket.
Now a days I'm more into esports. Require less movement and less prone to injuries. My body took a beating when I played football as a child and now at 25 I move around like I'm much older. Although in college I played in some intramural sports competitively from indoor soccer and dodgeball, which I was pretty decent at. Got a pretty decent shinner playing dodgeball that looked like someone beat me half to death those foam balls could pack a punch.
I can hit it a whole hell of a lot further, but she’s much more consistent so we both end up somewhere in the 80s. I win about 7/10, but some rounds she’s just on fire and can’t miss a put or a chip. I can’t chip to save my life, so it makes rounds pretty fun and competitive.
Before My injury, I played sports at minimum 4x a week. Usually on mondays, wednesdays, and or fridays after work for at least 2 hours. On saturdays I played at least 4. On sundays I played about 8-12 hours depending on when I finish or how I’m feeling. I played a combination of kickball, flag football (gridiron), rugby, and ultimate frisbee. Sometimes I’d just shoot hoops if I was bored. And no. I just played pickup games with friends. There wasn’t a season. I haven’t played an organized sport since college/university.
I used to play roller derby, but the time commitment was massive because my city didn’t have a recreational league. There are players who never do make the A or B teams but you’re still practicing 3 times a week regardless, and either playing or staffing bouts every other week (and traveling!) It’s kind of crazy to never play competitive sports and suddenly you’re on the B team of a national league.
Not to say people don’t (especially as a gay person gay softball is pretty popular), but I will say generally most people I know haven’t played an organized competitive sport since high school. If you’re talking for casual fun, my boyfriend and I played tennis yesterday. I’ve never been the greatest at basketball, but that is generally a default game to play and fairly easy to (pre covid) get a pick up game going.
I used to play basketball until 1992. I started refereeing in 1984 and have continued to this day. Took up wheelchair basketball refereeing in 1997 and achieved my international licence in 2004. Am starting to learn wheelchair rugby from this afternoon at a national tournament!

Quel(s) sport(s) pratiquez-vous et pourquoi ?

Au départ, c’était pour apprendre un nouveau sport, améliorer ma condition physique générale et ma coordination. Mais avec le temps c’est une famille que j’ai trouvé! Je ne changerais pas de gym pour rien au monde et aller m’entraîner n’est jamais une corvée, car je sais que ça libèrera mon esprit et mon corps de toutes les tensions négatives accumulées en cours de journée.
Pourquoi j’aime autant le crossfit. D’abord, parce que la diversité des entraînements évitent que je tombe dans l’ennui du quotidien. Ensuite, parce que j’aime l’haltérophilie et tout ce que ça implique. J’aime aussi le fait de me dépasser à chaque fois que j’entre au gym! Mais ce que j’aime par-dessus tout c’est de faire un entraînement individuel et de le réaliser en groupe. Je focus sur mes améliorations et je me compare à moi-même, mais je peux le faire en socialisant avec un groupe de gens ayant la même passion que moi et qui me pousse à aller toujours un peu plus loin! À 30 ans, les athlètes les plus professionnels ont pris la tête de ce processus et ont entamé la phase de démission. J'ai suivi - tennis, football et badminton. Cependant, leurs actions sont basées sur les exigences du jeu au niveau professionnel. En tant qu'amateurs. à 30 ans, je pense que le tennis est encore jouable. En fait, si vous avez 30 ans, vous pouvez commencer en tant que débutant. Au tennis, vous n'avez pas besoin de courir pendant 90 minutes comme le football ou sauter haut dans le badminton. Le tennis n'est pas très fatigant parce que le joueur de tennis ne court pas réellement, mais remue les pieds à gauche et à droite, et revient à la position centrale à la ligne de base, après chaque coup. Les joueurs de tennis sautent rarement à moins que l'adversaire ne donne un lob, mais le joueur a toujours la possibilité de revenir avant ou après le rebond de la balle. Dans les deux options, ils ont juste besoin de frapper la balle. Le tennis est également joué dans une zone ouverte où il est beaucoup plus confortable, contrairement au badminton, qui doit être joué à l'intérieur pour éviter les conditions venteuses. Si on peut être parfois extrêmement frustré de ne pas réussir à mettre la balle où l’on veut, d’être dominé et sous pression, la sensation lorsqu’on réussit un beau coup est jubilatoire.

الواحد بقاله فتره مش بيحس لا بيفرح ولا بيحزن .. ايه الحل 🙄🙄

AhmEdlAa788’s Profile PhotoGriezmann
🌷 Thanks for the translation and sorry for the late response. It's too long but I hope it'll help you.
When that happens, everything that's keeping you busy in life is making you feel too overwhelmed with emotions, to the point that it numbs you. Possibly, temporarily blinding you too of who you are and what is your real purpose in life. The solution which I can suggest to you is to step back, away from being too available to everything and everyone. Change your physical and mental state first. Prioritise what will keep your body, mind and soul healthy. Remember that the short term gratification and validation which we get from this dunya (especially from social media) are momentary, in comparison to the rewards of the akhirah. Which what we should be seeking and looking forward to instead. Don't allow the negativity of others to get into you, ignore those. Don't waste time and energy on them.
Go on with your daily life, but change your priorities and choices. Begin with food (eat healthy), do some activities which can help release dopamine in your brain (exercise, play sports, hangout with friends and learn to enjoy spending some time alone to reflect, rest / sleep, read, pray or watch something funny) and talk to your parents or look for mentors who can help you (listen to Muslim speakers, stories of the sahabas, or try to join / travel with jamaat). And most importantly, change your mindset in regards to every purpose of why you do what you do.
Make an intention to do things for the sake of Allah. Even for the littlest thing, like smiling to others (it's a sunnah and considered a charity). You won't get disappointed, because you don't have to expect validation from others but only from Allah. Remind yourself that above everything else you are a Muslim (servant / worship & obeys Allah), you won't feel lost because that role / purpose doesn't leave nor dies, Allah is Al-Baqi. Learn more about your deen and make duaa to have a stronger iman, insha'Allah💙

What’s something you know you do differently than most people.

Melissa4050’s Profile PhotoMelissa
Probably finding patterns with sports teams. Figuring out who's the real winners and losers. Because some fans go "why do they keep losing??". I'm like "the answer is simple". It really is simple.
Look at who's on the franchise from top to bottom. Is it full of people who were previously in a losing culture? Then, that's why. Is it full of inexperienced people who know nothing about losing or winning? Then, that's why. Because no team succeeds with people from losing cultures, or people who have no experience. It's impossible.
Phil Jackson won 11 NBA Championships as a head coach. He oozed winning. He won so much that he 3-peated with the most polarizing duo in sports history in Kobe and Shaq. There's not a doubt in my mind that had Phil Jackson not been head coach, that team doesn't succeed on the court. Kobe and Shaq would barely win more than a single title together had it not been for the Zen Master.
It's true his tenure with the Knicks was a failure; however, he was not the head coach. He was an executive. It was his first time ever being an executive, and he was going to a franchise that was known for losing a lot (at the time). Then they proceed to lose more, and then Phil leaves.
When you add the two together, you get losing energy. It's not surprising. People might've been excited for Phil to be on the Knicks, but it wasn't going to work. There was no way Phil Jackson was going to succeed under that role. Had he been head coach - that would've been a different story. He would've brought more winning energy, and likely would've been where Thibs is right now. Instead, that's just "what ifs".
Take Steve Yzerman as another example.. He gets coached by the GOAT Scotty Bowman; wins 3 cups as a player, and wins a 4th one as an executive in 08 with the Wings. Then he goes to Tampa with all that winning energy, builds that team into a juggernaut, and make the Cup Finals.
He could've stayed to witness Tampa winning 2 cups and being witness to the team he built, but he left, and now he's building the Red Wings into a juggernaut again.
I have no doubt he will win multiple championships in Detroit. He exudes winning. He wins everywhere he goes. The records are proof of that. Don't be shocked if the Red Wings turn into Tampa 2.0. Give it 5 years. We'll see the next Wings dynasty from the late 2020s to the early 2030s.
It's all about energy. If you're around losing energy you start to pick up on that, and if you're not careful, that can become your dominant state. Then you bring around the losing everywhere you go until you free yourself of the losing. That's all mental. You need to be ready to put all the losing behind you, so that you can start to win again.

What are you naturally good at?

Music. I can pick up almost any instrument without really trying. I have guitar, bass, piano, drums, trombone, trumpet, tuna, euphonium, and various others.
All things sport. I'm just one of them people that can pick up any sport and be good at it in a short amount of time e.g. anything from tennis, golf, football (soccer for you heathens), to karting, snooker + pool
Bass guitar. I can play most bass lines by ear.. I dont really need to pactice, it just feels like I am "talking" or painting with sounds. Hard to describe.. I really love playing though and it is quite cathartic.
Imitating people's voices, doing cartoon voices, funny foreign accents. For years I thought everybody could do that, and just weren't as afraid of embarrassing themselves as I was.
Annoying people by succeeding at school without putting the effort in. I noticed during university as they would act a bit spiteful when grades were brought up. Now they joke about how far I would go if I applied myself. To bad I'm lazy as Fuck.
Learning to play video games. Somewhat useless as far as life skills go, especially because my ceiling for skill that much above average. But I love it when a new game comes out so I can play online and figure out all the best tactics before anyone else.
I remember when Monday Night Combat came out, I loved that game, but my friends and I were pretty much unbeatable. I ended up getting #1 on the leaderboards for a little while, it’s an amazing feeling that is just impossible to get with older games.
Adapting to any environment, from playing games, sports, social event, academics, work environment, etc. Can fit into any situation and survive. A chameleon if you will. Not trying to boast, it's just a life skill that I try to harness and develop.
For example: a while back I was visiting my hometown and was calling up a good friend that I had not seen in a while. I could immedielty tell that something was bothering him just by the way he said "Hello" when answering the phone. I asked him is he was okay and he told me something to the effect of, "Not my wife, not my brother, sister or my kids could tell that I've been depressed these past few days but within seconds you called me out on it man." and we had a chat about what was getting to him. I can also tell when people are done talking to me, so needless to say I can tell pretty good when it time for me to shut up and let them go.
I've had friends ask me for recommendations in cities I haven't been to in five or ten years. If I can't remember the location of the place I'm recommending off the top of my head, I can go to google maps, find a spot I know I visited, and retrace my steps back to any point in my trip. Even for cities I've only been to for a day, 10 years ago.

Which sport would you say you're the best at if any? 🤾‍♂️ You don't need to be a master at it, just in relation to how you perform in other sports 😊

"Which sport would you say you're the best at if any?"
pilates, I guess? it's the sport I've been keeping up ever since 2019...so, that would make it the sport I'm the best at by default. 😅
"You don't need to be a master at it, just in relation to how you perform in other sports"
I was good at other sports* too...but I fell out of practice with them given my busy work schedule. 😞

paradiseeve5’s Profile PhotoDuaa.
I'd like to set up a non-profit organization for the visually-impaired community. It solicits public funding and rightfully provides social welfare as well as a safe space for them to acquire life skills and chase after their dreams (baking, dancing, playing sports etc).
Why? Because my local visually-handicapped organization helped me out when I had nothing to grasp onto and I'd like to do the same for others.

Que vas-tu faire de ton dimanche ?

Do as little as possible. It’s my one day where I get to do or not do whatever I want. It’s good to have, considering I’m either working or rehearsing with a band throughout the rest of the week. They don’t call it a day of rest for nothing. I like to go to the first showing of a movie, usually by myself, so I don't get bothered with a crowded theater. After I usually treat myself to about 12 Narragansetts and a bucket of wings from my favorite bar. Yep, productive!
I’m feeling like a lazy slug this afternoon. I really haven’t done anything and it’s so nice outside! I feel guilty for sitting on my ass all day. I enjoy weekends a lot better when I get out and do something fun !
Usually I go to a little bookstore downtown and do my homework there...they've got badass coffee and a nice little spot in the corner to work. On this particular Sunday, I have to be at school in two hours for a matinee...there are going to be so many small children. I'm probably going to suffer.
Well, I try to convince my mom not to make me go to church. If I succeed, I sleep in and finish the homework I didn't do on Friday or Saturday. And like JB said, I get sad because it's going to be Monday tomorrow.
7:00 am - get woken by my two year old son with a smack to the forehead 7:02-10:00 am- research the risks of an outpatient vasectomy procedure 10:01-10:15 am - get screamed at my toddler because we are out of waffles. Get up early to cook breakfast for the husband before he goes off for weekend warrior sports thing. Climb onto the couch with a blanket and read or surf reddit. Drink a meal boost shake & eat a sandwich. End up napping. Look at cat videos from local rescues and fall for all of them. Make lists of things to do. Ponder where to go on vacation. Eat leftover Saturday night pizza for lunch. Ignore the dirty laundry. Read more.
I go to ballet class every Sunday morning. Then I come home take a long stretch and have some lunch. Sometimes, if I'm not too tired from class, fiance and I will play some badminton. If not, I shower and then just chill.
I do a longer shower and skincare routine,usually a hair mask and a face mask if I can afford one. The hair mask from The Bodyshop I've had since Christmas and it's not going anywhere it seems. I run errands,properly tidy the apartment when I can be bothered and maybe squeeze in a tv show episode or two.
I usually put away the laundry and finish up any other housework I didn’t want to do on Saturday. I also sometimes mow the lawn if my husband is busy. Other than that I just chill and play with my dog.

How would you describe your personality? 🙂

I am shy at first when I meet someone, but once I get to know someone better and comfortable with them, I can chat their ear off and become annoying. I talk a lot…..
I am athletic. I like to play sports. Especially badminton, shinny (unprofessional hockey), volleyball and ultimate frisbee.
I am cheerful and positive. I like to talk to people, compliment people, and sometimes I am too positive and people look at me weirdly when I compliment them too much.
I am kind and respectful. I like to treat others with respect, and treat them how I want to be treated. I respect everyone, no matter their race, culture, ethnicity, religion, etc. I’m shy when you first meet me but once I’m used to you I’m going to act my normal self and keep you laughing 24/7.
I’m very sweet and kind. I help others when they need it and be here for everyone that needs me. If you need something important I will make sure I try my best to get it for you.
I love to sing. Singing keeps me calm and makes me happy.
I smile a lot. I love to smile and it lets others know you can get through the day if you just smile. Introverted but highly talkative if you make the first move; perfectionistic; straight-A student with not a lot of common sense, unfortunately; bookworm; musician; daydreamer; self-conscious; absolutely hopeless romantic! Long dark brown hair—if the light hits it just right, you can see my natural coppery highlights. Unfortunately, the light rarely hits it just right. My hair isn't naturally straight (I flat-iron it), but it's not very pretty when I air-dry it (as in it's straightish on one side and curly-wavy on the other side). Dark brown, slightly diamond-shaped eyes with long eyelashes (the bottom ones are very long, but the top ones tend to go out more than curl up, so you can't really tell). I've been told my eyes are pretty three times and once I was told I had “fish scale" dark lines in my irises, how to describe my nose lol. My lips are full and my teeth are straight from two years of braces. Both sides of my family have big teeth, so I have big teeth too. I have an oval face, thick eyebrows that aren't really that dark, and not really any cheekbones that stand out. I look really good in maroon/burgundy, olive green, and navy blue. When I wear makeup, I keep it natural-looking and don't wear heavy, bold eyeshadow or the “brick brows". If you need someone to bring you down from your high horse then I’m here. I’m the guy in the group who presents the problems to a plan or project so they don’t do anything rash. Switches between “morose, depressing and dour.” , “Unhinged, Sadistic and Evil.” and “Completely amicable and affable.” I have no Idea which one will come out when I talk to you.

What was your high school like?

It was a 1980s suburban past-its-best Comprehensive.
We were lucky in some regards, it had plenty of green grounds, a bit of woodland, a swimming pool, sports centre, chicken coop, potting sheds and stuff.
But they were kind of vestiges of an earlier time when the school had been quite highly regarded, and by the time I was there the pool was often not in use, the teaching was average, the sports centre ended up getting firebombed, and so on.
Also, way too much hymn singing in assembly.

What are your hobbies and how did you get into them? 🧑‍🎨⚽️🛹🎤🎮📖

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Since there is a paramilitary institution near me called the National Defense League, I liked going there as a child. When I was 12 I became a member of this organization. There, we learned to shoot at a target with sports weapons. Boys are always interested in such things, so I studied very well. I am also a member of the Polish Scouting Association. I have the rank of an instructor in the rank of a guide - PWD for short. Another hobby of mine is ballroom dancing. For six years my girlfriend and I went to private ballroom dancing school for six years. Another hobby of mine is URBEX, I like visiting old abandoned buildings. One of my most important hobbies is computer science. I was so absorbed in this hobby that I graduated from high school as an IT technician. After school, I got a job as an IT specialist and work in a computer server room. However, it does not end there, because apart from work, I study computer science at university for working people

Is there anything you liked to do as a child and you still do it nowadays?

Watching sports and exploring astronomy. I may not be a child anymore but I still love researching astronomy. I like reading about it. I like being updated on if I've missed anything extraordinary. I know after New Horizons a lot of my interest in probes faded because we basically saw every single planet. Until I had to shift my mindset into being more excited for other probes. Because there's more to space than just seeing how far you can go. It's more about how much you can discover.

What do you like or dislike about your city? 🙄

hussainaliraqe23’s Profile Photo3ra2y
I've worked and trained in my capital city for years and years and yEARS, so I have a very long relationship with it.
This is Cardiff, by the way. Totally different kettle of fish to London, but I'm not sure I'm qualified to call London mine anymore 😂
Anyway, the Diff!
It's a coastal city, so it's got a bunch of different parts to it. You've got the Bay and there are boat rides and a waterpark and coastal walks, so that's nice. And then inside the city, you've got the main hub where you can shop at some really cute shops - it's a maze of old arcades, churches, that kinda thing - and then heading North you've got an arboretum and parks and the sports stadiums.
And you can walk around the entire city in a day. Seriously. You can cover the whole area.
But! Whilst all of those things are a huge positive to me - it's cozy and it's friendly - it's an absolute tit to try and travel from. The airport only seems to fly to Dubai or Amsterdam. And the city is small- you run out of stuff to do in two days, you WILL bump into your ex, you WILL have to be nice to his new wife.
But overall, it's pretty lovely.

Tu aimes regarde quoi à la TV ?

I like watching sitcoms and comedy shows. Like the office, parks and rec, and one day at a time.
Sci-fi, fantasy, horror. Nature documentaries. I enjoy historical documentaries as well if they're well-done, but in practice they're a toss-up... my higher education was in history, so I get very cross and start ranting about source bias and the habit presenters have of glossing over alternate theories and important context. I generally don't enjoy comedies - while I do have a sense of humour, it's not quite a normal one - and really, really hate the current fashion for everything being grimdark and hopeless, so even though I love fantasy, I disliked the adaption of Game of Thrones. For the same reason, crime-type thrillers and dark dramas are a no from me. Not interested in sports, dislike 'reality' TV and anything competitive.
I usually watch sci-fi (Humans and the first season of Westworld are my favorites). I also loved Carnivale on HBO (not science fiction, but the first season was beautiful and creepy), and Les Revenants (it's like a French subtle zombie series). The first season of Orphan Black was good too.
I don't really watch TV these days. Genres I tend to like darker dramas a la Game of Thrones and Black Sails, but also historical/period pieces like the various Jane Austen miniseries and Downton Abbey. Crime dramas like Law and Order. Dramas are probably my favorite genre. I watch a lot of fantasy shows or sci fi type stuff. I also like some comedies. And cartoons! My favorite shows are Lost and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Forensic Files and Spongebob (i watch The Vampire Diaries every now and then too). I was watching Outlander due to the historical aspect but it was way to campy and silly for me to finish.
I'm not much into tv shows, though I found a few good ones I enjoy watching. All of them are at least a bit comical and won't get boring or too weird to understand. The exceptions are 'the travelers' & HTGAWM but I stopped watching those like after 3 seasons too, because I barely watch TV or use netflix
Film Noir. A mostly post WW2 film genre that exposed the dark (literally) side of America. Most were low budget B movies shot at night in Los Angeles and at various studio backlots. They're an incredible time capsule of LA in the 40s-50s. Plus I love a good murder.
Fantasy, Sci-fi, drama. Those very strange, unusual movies and shows that leave your mouth hanging open as you ponder what the hell you just watched.

Is patriotism a good thing or does it lead to mistrust and dislike of foreigners?

I believe being patriotic for your country is entirely normal. There's nothing wrong with supporting your country or loving your country because of the things it has brought to the world. I love the fact that I'm half Italian because I love what Italy has contributed to the world. We don't count the Mussolini era, but if we include anything but that time period, you will see just how much influence Italy has brought to the world.
Look at Fashion. Look at sports cars. Italy has been a primary factor as to why they are prevalent today. Whenever you see a Maserati, it is Italian. Whenever you see Versace or Gucci bags, it is Italian. Even though my heritage doesn't come from the northern part of Italy, I am still proud of the fact that I have some Italian heritage.
I believe it only becomes an issue when you start saying that your country is better than everyone else's without exception. Of course, there's nothing inherently wrong with making that claim. It can just come off a bit too brash for somebody who comes from a different country. Because they may see things differently, and they may disagree with you, and it may not really end the way you want it to. It might end with a bit of a kerfuffle. Either way, if you don't bring violence into the picture, there's nothing wrong with it. Just be prepared for disagreements if it's said in the wrong setting.

well, up to the sequel for sure, and then let them deal with their shittу franchise on their own
as shown by live quests with friends, xmas with my dad and his paranoia, expeditions i was on and a passion for sports survival (with first aid skills, of course) in middle school - in difficult situations i basically am the most adequate person.
