    1. Because you’re too stupid to comprehend “For All Mankind” and “Foundation”, and the many documentaries are nothing of the sort?
      The better question would have been “Why is J.T so dumb?”.
      Look closely into the mirror and when you’re able to answer that one, simple question, feel free to return with your enlightenment.

  1. If the far left continue to push the removal of gender to its extreme and ignore biological differences, then how can there be gay, straight or lesbian people? Doesn’t the absence of gender exclude the possibility of gender issues? Maybe Apple could do a documentary on this to educate us less woke folk.

  2. The increasingly whackier emperors made sure to entertain Rome’s ever restless citizenry with ever more spectacular shows in the Colosseum and in similar venues during the Roman empire’s expansion & decline.
