i found a new earth….should I tell?

I believe I saw this short scifi film on Youtube, specifically DUST. Others think they saw it on FB.  Plot – earth is  about to die; last ditch effort many, many ships are sent out to search for a new planet where humanity can live; the last viable ship finds one just as his supplies are about to run out; it’s perfect, earth like before humanity screwed it up; he has a signaling device to inform earth; he is by a stream; he thinks about the paradise he’s found; he thinks about what humanity did to earth; he does not tell earth saving paradise and condeming humanity to its fate on earth.  I really want to find this film.  Any help?

Misogynsitic scene from a movie.

I was having a discussion about how prevalent rape culture and misogyny in general was (and still is).  I don’t remember if this was a movie or a television show.  It was at least 20+ years ago, maybe 30+.  I remember a young man being given advice on how to “court” a young lady.  He was told that when she said, “No” he should keep going because once he had sex with her she would like it and ‘poof’ he has won her over.  I believe it was her apartment when he was ripping her clothes off and she was fighting back.  Then a heavy television was knocked off the tv stand and she caught it.  He was elated because now her hands were occupied and unable to hit him.  With her hands occupied holding the television, he made quick work of removing her clothing.  Then, quick cut to the next scene, they are laying together, both with smiles on their faces.  His prowess in bed apparently made her forget about being raped.  Anyway, even as a young man, I knew this was wrong, but it was the culture of the day.  So glad we are now moving in the right direction as a society.
