Hello people of the SGE council!
(And apologies to the people of the Handbook Chat)
If you’d like to join, just ask!
I am no longer the substitute poster and am now officially here to stay for the next month. How about that!
So, how was your week? Mine has been filled with space news and statistics. For those of you that have heard me complain about AP stats we finally took a test in the AP style and it went… okay. If you remember me going on about Spacex Starship, SN10 landed without exploding for 8 minutes! It then promptly blew up.
Moving on: question of the week.
If you had to choose one, which SGE “good guy” would you kill? (No villains! We all want to kill the villains) (oh my goodness the amount of double L’s in that)
Fact of the week, in response to last week’s fact. The most lightning struck place on earth is Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela.
I couldn’t get to the advert form this week, sorry if you had anything to advertise, but if you want to advertise anything, feel free to fill out this form!
That’s all for the day, folks, have a great week!

First! *comments to remind myself to comment later because I have no time at the moment*
This reminds me of the good old days where we used to try to beat Fudge to posting the update after the tag list and it’s a nice memory.
I know. Remember when she missed commenting and you held an investigation?
That was hilarious.
Do you remember when Salty posted? Or are you too new for that?
Here’s my comment. Finally.
I’m taking 4 ap’s (including stats) next year. I’m going to die.
Darn you spacex. Getting Erin’s hopes up, then quickly dashing them :((
Can I kill tedros-
If not, let me kill Nicola or Sader. Preferably Nicola.
ooo, thank you for letting me know about the lightning!
Do you want access to the advert form? I should be able to give you the responses.
Happy birthday! And have a great rest of your week too.
Oh wait kinda—
Wait yeah she was like, insanely late or something and we all beat her.
No, I’m much to new for that.
Dang I’ll do three APs next year and I thought I was the dead one.
I know! They’re very cruel.
You can absolutely kill Tedros please don’t kill Nicola.
I just need the link I can’t get the link.
I literally h.ate her though.
Do you have an email I could send it to?
I just don’t want to put it here so everyone has access if that makes sense
Oh wait just put it at the bottom of our group doc that no one checks.
I don’t understandddddd why do people hate her?!?
This is great!! And actually I kinda want to kill all the good guys and the villains but mainly the good guys-
aHEM but if you’re only letting me pick one then TEDROS
Happy birthday to all who had birthdays!! Have a great week everyone 🤍
Sooo my week was good! The finale for wandavision came out two days ago so I watched it 🤩👏😌😔😁😁😥😐🤔🙄☺😯🙁 <- very mixed emotions about it. The hero I would kill…..uhh ummm Nicola, I dont think the story would have been GREATLY affected if she died cause like….all she really did was cause dRaMa
Why does everyone hate Nicola I do not understand.
I’ve heard so much about WandaVision, what’s it about?
I do not hate Nicola I just feel she wasn’t exactly needed also Wandavision is about….well Wanda and Vision from the MCU and ummmm *tries not to spoil anything* theres some magicccc 👩😥😥😥😭😭😭🤘🖐👋🤟👨🤩😲😮👩🦱🧙♀️❤💫💓💖🕳💫🕳💫☮✳❎✅💠🔰‼⁉‼⁉‼⁉❓❓‼‼☢⚜❓🤨🤔🤨🤔😫 that is describing the show in summary!
ok i feel like i need to answer this: probably ok nvrm i have no ide
I’d kill either Nicola or Hort.
I don’t hate Nicola, but like other people in this chain I don’t think she actually was all that important or needed in this story.
I don’t entirely hate Hort either, I’ve felt some pity for him about Sophie and all, but like…honestly that was kind of his entire character and he was kind of a Nice Guy TM and from book 4 onwards it really started getting old. And I honestly wish Sophie had just stayed happily independant from the end of book 3 onwards.
And…my week’s been a little rough, honestly.
A week or two ago my brother tested positive for covid-19. We quarantined him in the apartment across the way (we’re friends with the family that lives there and they’ve been out of the city since before the lockdown started and we have the keys to their place). The rest of us got tested the next day, and it turned out my dad was positive too. We got him an antibody treatment and quarantined him in the bedroom, with me and my mom sleeping in the living room. He’s made a lot of pain sounds and hasn’t been very good about eating and drinking stuff.
A few days ago, my dad’s oxygen level dropped and my mom called an ambulance. I woke up to a bunch of folks in uniforms and protective gear coming in and loading my dad onto a stretcher. My brother moved back ’cause he was completely recovered, and me and my mom went and got tested again and THIS time we both came up positive. Our symptoms have been pretty mild (nose and throat problems, dulled sense of taste, some minor breathing problems for me). Apparently these things usually take like a week or so to go away. Either that or they get worse but that’s a lot less common. My dad’s in the hospital still. A couple of times my mom’s been on the phone with him and I’ve heard him whining about how he’s dying and how everything’s wrong and a bunch of stuff while steroids were messing with his head.
I mean, it’s not a constant struggle to cope with all this, I really only start getting scared when stuff’s actively happening around me, like the positive test results being announced to us, or the ambulance coming in, or my dad sounding like he’s in a lot of pain. The rest of the time, my brain’s pretty good at automatically filtering stuff out, assuming things will be okay and just never really processing it or thinking about it much, so that it doesn’t feel bad.
…Also, we’re on the end-of-trimester projects for school and I’m a little behind on all of them. 🙁
I’m really sorry, Twig, let us know if you need to talk about it or anything.
school is insane, also I have some residual fury over the non-death of tedros in OTK because i HATE THE MONARCHY AND PIERS MORGAN AND MONARCHIST-
calm down bel calm down
stuff has been going DOWN here in england which has made me hate the monarchy more than I did before
an incomplete list:
prince andrew at a pizza express in woking
megxit and the racist royals
i recently discovered that william and kate have THREE children which shook me to my core
that’s all thank you
i cant believe that a prince would have 2 work (bc i dont think royals usually have jobs) and this is just my opinion but racist people literally su.ck
also its kinda cool that u live in england bc, well, ive never been there and i live in amerca
it’s hilarious, newspapers are all talking about royal family members quitting their jobs
WHAT JOBS THEY JUST SIT AROUND AND STEAL MONEY FROM HARDWORKING PEOPLE
(i do respect meghan, but none of the others)
(and cattyrose is right, england is pathetic. it snowed today. IN APRIL.)
omgg ikr, it’s been snowing on and off all day, it went up to about 20 degrees at one point then started snowing again!
ugh and it’s so annoying how come we have to give them money THEY LITERALLY HAVE SO MUCH ALREADY
also call me Tash 🙂
wow. “ROYAL FAM QUITS JOBS THAT THEY DONT HAVE” ok maybe england isnt that great…but at least it snows where u r bc where i live it doesnt snow. at least it used 2, like, a bajillion yrs ago
I haven’t heard of most of these events aside from the Oprah interview with Harry and Meghan. (Oprah is like royalty here in America) Most of my respect for the Royal family involves their ability to look good in hats, so that shows what I know.
I didn’t actually watch the interview, but I heard a lot about it. And yeah, Oprah is a rather legendary figure here for… some reason.
okee 🙂 u guys can call me kahleela if u want 2 i kno its a little hard 2 remember
oooh, the queen looks great in hats
tash and kahleela, cool
(look up prince andrew + pizza express in woking if you want to know more)
we had a whole assembly about her in year 7, but now all I remember is that interview
the royal family is generally a disaster
but the hats are pretty good
tbh i’ve only got into royal politics and hating them during lockdown because i’ve been watching a lot of mock the week and 8 out of 10 cats
mock the week is brilliant–
among other things, I’ve started watching have I got news for you
unnewsrelated would i lie to you, not going out and QI i am obsessed with
I don’t like how they can get away with things that would imprison most other people, how they treat Meghan and how they treated Diana, and how much money is spent on them even though they barely bring anything into the country.
I can’t imagine my taxes going to people who get to spend their lives in a huge castle not having to work a day in their lives but stilling getting to live an extravagant life and cause scandals the whole country has to deal with it. That being said, how is the royal family racist in any way?
ok i know thats this question isnt 4 me but i will answer any way using the power of google
so, i googled it and saw the headline once i clicked on the link, which said “the british royal family has turned a blind eye 2 its racist past.” then in the article it says, “The Queen has never acknowledged the monarchy’s historical role in supporting the Black ***** trade.
Human rights activist Peter Tatchell said the system of an inherited head of state is “racist by default.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah highlighted race issues in the royal family.” and then it also says, “In 2020, the royal family’s silence over the Black Lives Matter movement did not go unnoticed, and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey has once again brought to the fore the topic of racism in the monarchy. …they claim a member of the royal family raised “concerns” over how dark Archie’s skin would be before he was born, and Markle said her treatment in the tabloids compared to that of Kate Middleton was racist. “
She’s not wrong, the royal family is founded on decades of colonisation and erasure of native people.
Also, Prince Andrew deserves to be imprisoned and I think it’s terrible that the royals are brushing over his past.
I mean I can understand not wanting to be blamed for your ancestors mistakes, and it’s not necessary for them to apologize for it. But they should acknowledge it, and definitely don’t do it themselves
But how was that their fault? If you were a wealthy white person in the south during that time period you would most likely have slaves, You are a product of your time.
it’s more that they’re refusing to apologise for their past even when they’ve probably benefited from it more than anyone else, plus the ‘product of their time’ excuse doesn’t work when they’ve said some very racist things to Meghan quite recently.
But why should they apologize for things they didn’t do? And refusing to offer protection for Megan’s son who isn’t even in the family isn’t racist.
I think this discussion is jinxed–
RIP Prince Philip duke of Edinburgh, died this morning
LILAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH WASSUP FAM
And like ehhh I feel bad for the queen and all that and you can’t deny the country’s loss………… but he was literally 99 and recentally had heart surgery so it was gonna happen sooner or later
I’m completely okay with going off subject!
Tedros isn’t really all that exciting. I think Agatha deserves better, but she seems to like him for some reason I don’t understand. He kinda likes to have his own plans and doesn’t include Agatha in the planning, probably mostly for plot reasons, but he could like… let her help. Because Agatha is cool.
yep, it’s probably best to change the subject here; we were getting dangerously close to politics
I wouldn’t say I hate Tedros, I am more disgusted by him. In the first 4/5 books I had pretty much the exact same view of him as Hester. A stupid arrogrant prat of a prince used to getting exactly what he wanted with no effort. But his character improved a lot and by the end of the 6th book, I could just about tolerate him
woah, i never thought about it like that…and now that i think about it thats true lol. i was just like, ‘why does everyone say they would k.ill him?’ but i mean u guys r right so…
I didn’t mind Tedros in books 3-5 but then he started being really quite sexist and I didn’t like him.
(Also, my dislike of the system of a monarchy and therefore anyone perpetuating it.)
