Has anyone else noticed the resemblance?
Opinion:

Tink I had not, and in fact had to look everything up, here... "Rod Jay Rosenstein born January 13, 1965 is an American attorney serving asUnited States Deputy Attorney General since 2017."

...

"In May 2017, he authored a memo which President Trump said was the basis of his decision to dismiss FBI Director James Comey."

"Later that month, Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election and related matters based on the firing of Comey."

...all this from Wikipedia.

Oh, and this about Himmler...I have been amazed and rather horrified; because as a lover and believer in mythology, it turns out Nazi Germany appropriated much of their validation from folklore, as well as some of the great philosophers.

"Himmler had a lifelong interest in occultism, interpreting Germanic neopagan and Völkisch beliefs to promote theracial policy of Nazi Germany, and incorporating esoteric symbolism and rituals into the SS."

What was your experience on Ask? When did you start using it?
Opinion:

Dear Kninjanin,

Yes I remember quite a lot, because the old Ask was the first Q/A website I ever found, and I did not know there could even be such a thing. I thought the concept was wonderful, a way for people around the world to get to know each other and exchange ideas, help each other.

Ask was formed from the search engine AskJeeves mid-2010, I think, and I found it late 2010. My first friend on there was SherryA; she had such an excellent fine mind, eventually became a moderator there. Then I met Rooster there, his handle was MrJohnWayne, but I did not get to know him well until we met again on Blurt.

I had difficulty on Ask because they used AI for moderation. I post lots of controversial answers, and the downvotes meant the AI got "trained" to delete my answers, so only about half of them were seeing the light of day. That was difficult, because I spent lots of time researching and writing to make quality answers.

Finally the human moderation caught on, and unhooked me from AI and then I had no more problems there.

* * *

So I was sorry when they pulled the plug on human answers in 2015, and went to algorithms only. I don't really know how Ask got such a large feed of Questioners/Answerers, maybe from their search engine? But I wish this site could do that also.

I am on Quora now, as you know because you are also. That is where several people from the old Ask go and I like to be with them, but Quora is not as good as this one Solved. Quora has too much AI, and it also has a dark underbelly with vicious trolls and such. Didge taught me about trolls when we met on Ask.

Hello, Virginia
Good morning to you!
May I ask you for advice, in private? Thank you.
May 23, 2017 by Marianne
I also tried to chat with you but the first was not posted and I thought I hit the wrong key so I tried again and know I hit the right key but it still did not get posted...then you left. Stupid me, thinking these "walls" were private...

I am so sorry, Ladyhorse. I do know that things like that happen in the medical profession, all too common, I am afraid.

Temp. was 96.2, heart racing and chills...weight was 97...talked to PCP and he didn't think I needed to get blood test...he  said if I had sepsis I couldn't get out of bed. He's been my PCP for over thirty years and still doesn't know how fear of hubs can make me tenacious? More proof to Rooster MD's really don't want people to get well. If we weren't sick we wouldn't need them and they lose money. I believe he can hear it in my voice and is waiting/hoping I'll be admitted in the ER so they get more $ for their "firm"!
