    The thing with Netflix is, it's worldwide. Are these 45 million people all from the US? If you look at ratings, US network TV only counts in markets they broadcast.

    Probably because the comments on that picture resemble the comments in this thread ^^

    We have something like that and it's called Pfannkuchen (pancake). Though they're available all year ^^ What americans know as pancakes, in Germany those are called Plinse. Given how many types of food are named after citizens of cities, people might imply, that we Germans are all cannibals. We have Frankfurter, Berliner and Hamburger and sometimes we even eat people from Poland, the Krakauer or Austria, the Wiener both in sausage and schnitzel form 😄

    Chit Chat: Season 11

    Same here in Germany. We only elect members of the Bundestag (our version of congress). We don't even elect our Chancellor. We elect parties and those who create the winning coalition elect the chancellor in their first session. Usually, the parties nominate a chancellor candidate before any election and that person is the reason the party gets the vote from a voter. Our version of the Senate is called the Bundesrat and its members are the Governors and Lt. Governors of the various federal states. And we don't get locked government in our country because even if Bundestag and Bundesrat were of different majorities, our politicians still know that they have to govern for the people and not against each other. In Germany, election advertisement is allowed for 3 months before the election and it's majorily of the posters and billboard kind. Granted, I don't watch a lot of network or cable TV but I have never seen a TV commercial for a party or candidate for any office. US elections more often than not begin a year before election day, no wonder it's so freakin' expensive. Well, we have a Bundespräsident, which is the office more for representation. He or she is also nominated and elected by the Bundestag. I have seen some US ballots. It's totally crazy how packed they are. And as seen in the last election in Florida, they fixed the Senate election in favor of the republican candidate (who is still the governor until January) by changing the ballot for the largest county that has the most Democratic voters. The senate race was in the lower left or lower right of the ballot instead of at the top below the governor race where it should have been. A lot of people in that county didn't vote in the Senate race, probably because they were tired of voting for so many positions. And the fact that in so many states, local judges, attorneys general and sheriffs have to be elected is mindboggling to me. How can you be an impartial arbiter if you have to pander to a certain voter group so you can get reelected later? Example, Texas. A field director for Texas Democratic congressional candidate Mike Siegel was arrested after he delivered a letter demanding that Waller County update the registration status of thousands of students at a nearby college whose eligibility to vote this November was thrown in flux the day before. He took a picture of the clerk so he had proof that he delivered the letter. And before he was arrested, he was asked who he worked for. I doubt that man would have been arrested if he were working for the republican.

    What's so bad about sprouts? Though as a child, I usually didn't want to eat them too but now, I gobble them down when they're on my plate ^^

    Husband: "We won money in the lottery, what should we do with it?" Wife: "Actually, I'd like to take half of it and get a divorce." Husband: "We won 30 bucks. Here's your 15, now get out." Reminder: When you're at a funeral, don't throw the flowers behind you to see who catches them.

    It's hard to understand American politics. Right now, it looks as if they're more divided on partisan lines than during the Civil War. Other parties exist, like the Green Party or the Libertarians but they're usually not on ballots for national races because there are certain requirements you need to have to be on those ballots. And if a third party becomes too big, they usually get swallowed by either the Democrats or republicans. Like Dean Norris' character in The West Wing said so fittingly: "In every other country, the republican party would be three different parties." And the United States is the only democracy I know where one party actively tries to have less people vote. Just a few example of what republicans are doing to suppress votes in areas where more people vote for Democrats: - In Houston, voting machines were not working at multiple polling places - At Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Detroit, they turned voters away because they couldn't find the voting machines. Yes, you read that right, they couldn't find them. Later they learned that they were in a storage closet to which the polling workers had no key for - In Gwinnett county in Georgia, the machines that give you your ticket to vote weren't working And the thing is, all those places have early voting, so why are these problems appearing on election day?

    A hand injury isn't something you can easily hide for several episodes unless he can take off the cast for filming. It was different when Kaley broke her leg, there they could film her sitting or have a stand-in replacement to film her character walking (like in the 21-second excitation)

    My guess is they'll make him have a fitting accident in the opener of the next episode they're filming (like a videogame injury or something)
