It's an hour long but it's an interesting dive into Thatcherism in the 80s and a summer of love music movement that JoeP doesn't remember clearly due to all the chemicals he took at the time.

The True Story of Netflix Six Triple Eight| History | Smithsonian Magazine

Quote:
When Romay Johnson Davis was in her 20s, she decided to do something millions of young men across the country were doing: enlist in World War II. All five of her brothers had already joined up. “They were being pulled away one by one, and I had no playmates,” Davis recalls. Most young women were staying in the United States and helping out on the home front. Even the iconic Rosie the Riveter was urging women to work in factories, not ship out overseas. But Davis’ parents supported their only daughter’s decision. “My father was skeptical sometimes about my going off. But Mama said, ‘Child, see the world while you can.’”

I usually like those "life before internet/cell phones" puff pieces but that one just annoyed me for the implication that before cellphones it was "easy" to support oneself and obtain an advanced degree on an entry-level job. I'm sure it was easy for that person, but I don't think the vast majority of people had the same options available even then, and now there are so many other reasons besides cellphones (like uh, the skyrocketing cost of school or having to have multiple jobs) that prevent people from being able to do that.

All the "bats" have been mistakenly classified as religious objects.

One of my uncles told me often, "You're free to go to any church you wish. But, come Sunday morning, your ass had better be sitting in Church, somewhere."
