Mindless Diversions is a place to discuss movies, books, films/TV, games, or any other entertainment/lifestyle stuff, without the constant internet bickering over personal political and religious preferences. There are plenty of places on the internet for that.

Comment threads that stray into politics or religion will be monitored closely, and, if you get a mod telling you “No politics,” or “No religion,” that’s what it means.
Mindless Diversions strives to be a place for people to come together, not be split apart.

2020 strikes Cyberpunk.
I found out that I ran in the CU Boulder Virtual 5K!
