Psychological subjects have always been interesting to follow and this one as well was quite amusing. And I also loved the challenging way the conversation was being continued.

Also disappointed you are giving these Aholes air time. I guess it’s a nice place of privilege not to worry about businesses like this.

Chick-fil-A is terrible. I fervently hope for their demise. Homophobia hate chicken is not yummy.

I love how the fact check is so meticulous as to point out Angela's wrong math in the stair climbing scenario, and also how the episode ends on such a sweet note. Go team "Duckner / Dubworth"!

One viral tweet in the Persian feed goes on as “I’m afraid of getting married as much as never being married”. Loooooots of people responded with the same feelings, some over the same decision, some about having kids, some about migration, just to mention the most repeated responses. Resonates with Angela’s Twitter poll.

In Angela's defense, I feel fairly certain that when I was growing up (early 90's) there was a "green-blue" and a "blue-green" Crayola crayon color. I remember it striking me as odd as a child and also having a specific memory of getting confused between the two (you know, when you're trying to continue to color the ocean but end up grabbing the wrong one and then your ocean ends up two different shades).
