today I watched one of the coolest episodes of Law and Order ever:

this super brilliant woman was forced by her boss to sleep with him otherwise he would have ruined her career. but since she was “consenting” (bc she had no choice) they couldnt charge him so instead they charged him with extortion -her body for her career.

and they won. bam!

A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that’s just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it’s a joke.
