  1. Terry gotta Terry. First sentence of the post he calls his own work a 'great book.' No modesty at all despite stretching one barely above average book into a career.
  2. There are already accusations from an underage girl though she ultimately didnt press charges. Paedophilia would only stick if it was truly a child; even then his trolls would dig up selfies from social media and start their slut smear campaign.
  3. I get your first point but I'm not sure i want mandatory reporting of wounds. A good way to get a victim under investigation; especially with ICE running wild.
  4. I don't have one yet but I honestly believe they are going to be as common as telephones in the future. Iphones were very much a toy at first yet now they are standard issue with many businesses. I believe this tech will take longer to become standard but I see bluetooth tech in almost everything now; thermostats, lights, appliances, entertainment devices. Gone will be lost TV remotes. With the rise of online grocery shopping one could just say their list and then tell the speaker to send it. Tied to something like a smart phone a crockpot could be started at just the right time, uber can be ordered for grandma because her car broke down and she barely can figure out her cell phone, etc. I don't think we have even cracked the possibilities of what this tech will offer. For those with mobility issues I see this being a godsend; independent living will be available for longer than ever as even simple tasks like turning off lights can be done from one spot and who knows what complex tasks will become available as technology moves along. I see no need for one for myself right now, but I can't deny that I am excited to see where this particular technology goes; I see it as one the key techs for the next generation.
  5. I think a second football league could survive but i doubt XFL2 is the way to do it. If i had the capitol i would do the following. -Start small in MLS stadiums. -bring in several big name option QBs who couldnt make it the NFL. -no huddles allowed, shorten the play clock to speed up the game and encourage spread offenses. -no punts allowed past your 40 yard line, smart football isnt always entertaining and scoring would be key. -market the hell out of any big name college players i could at first, then top RBs as the season went on. Make it a mostly option league with games lasting an hour and a half ot two with lots of explosive scoring.
  6. My personal pipe dream has long been a non-military service branch. Requires a commitment but guaranteed work and benefits for the length of the 'tour,' plus job training. Use it to rebuild our nation's infrastructure.
  7. There is part of me that wonders if Trump would suddenly reverse his politics if Dems took both houses. Think of all the wins he could brag about if he started passing things put through by political party that actually knows how to govern. But since I am guessing he will just double down on stupid I would like the Dems not to impeach (barring him truly threatening nuclear war) but rather start getting his vetoes on the record. Pass legislation that states the president and all future presidents but give up their businesses, release tax returns, be audited to make sure they are not personally profiting from the position, etc. Target everything Trump swears he is not doing but in no way would sign off on. Get him on the record for all of it. Because I would much rather have him voted out of office than the drama of yanking him out as long as the worst of his abuses can be stopped by Dems in Congress.
  8. I know Gerrymandering is a state issue, as are many of the voter suppression tools. So what could be done at the federal level to support the right to vote if the Dems were able to take all three branches again. I've have heard federal holiday for elections thrown out but i fail to see that helping the poor and working class voter. Could a national ID card help? Can some state level suppression be stopped by federal laws? What else am i missing?
  9. My fear is that for Jones to keep the seat he will have to cross the aisle once in a while to pick up the credentials. And I am not sure where in the GOP agenda I am comfortable with him doing that.
  10. The Green Knight, which I believe was the inspiration for Sleepy Hollow. Its iffy but involves a knight who lives through a beheading. Google tells me it dates from tbe fourteenth century.
  11. I do love the boids. I was given a Pionus parrot when I was in college and really didn't know what I was getting into. But 15 years later I still have the asshole (said with love) and get to see a beautiful green and blue bird every day. My area has tons of Canadian geese, magpies, and ravens. Of these the ravens are my favorite to watch, you can see their brains working when they cock their head at you. Seasonally I will see bluejays and occasionally blue birds. I have never had luck getting hummingbirds to come to any of my feeders but I occasionally see them one town over as it is a bit closer to the mountains. I do see the dinosaurs occasionally in my area too, though not as much since they finished developing my neighborhood. Red Tail hawks mostly, but I have seen Bald Eagles do fly overs and once had a kestrel spend a good twenty minutes on my fence.
  12. The Broncos offense is terrible. Trevor either can't throw anymore or just doesn't know the offense. What a waste of a defense.
  13. I need this. Was it a free story or did you find it in a collection somewhere? I suppose ill just google this answer.
  14. Yep. Didn't find it scary nor interesting. Could not figure out why people like it.
  15. I have skimmed the thread but can't find the typical playoff predictions. I am really interested to see what non Colorado people think about my Nuggets this year.
