  1. NFL 2016 Week 7: Nobody's Burfict

    I am a huge homer so I love it but I really don't see how that isn't an incomplete pass. If someone had touched him they would have certainly called it forward motion.
  2. US Elections - The white power-suit vs the white-power suit

    I forgot my phone and as such couldn't listen to my audiobook while driving today. So I listened to Rush and Hannity instead! Rush is positive the media is making up polls for any number of reasons. Once he had Pence on he settled on depressing conservative voters so they stay home; apparently pulling money out of swing states and moving into down ballot stuff is a calculated move that PROVES Hillary is sure she is actually behind. I also learned that people who follow the news, but get it from services like CNN and even the AP wire, are low information voters. Meanwhile in even kookierville Lumpy is sure that as we speak Democrats are organizing large scale voting fraud scheams because of...ACORN. Yes, it proves it if only we listen. Finally gave up and went back to sports talk.

    Good to see the Broncos Offense can do something if they are not holding every other play.
  4. Preston and Child; Pendergast series.

    Read all of them that were out at the time about seven/eight years ago. Relic felt like a Michael Creighton type book: psuedo-science techno thriller. Like Andorion said from there it follows Pendergrast to cases that seem supernatural but have more mundane answers. Pendergrast is a good character with a cool background that comes out slowly through the books. But the books themselves can be choppy (from reading their solo work Child is the better writer of the pair) and the series really goes off the rails after the loose trilogy that starts with Brimstone. I had to quit the series after Wheel of Darkness and I was much less picky when I was reading these. The authors also have an annoying habit of dropping titles of their other books into the text but this may have been something I remember from their solo works) That said compared to every other grocery store thriller I have tried (James Rollings, blech) these were probably the best. I would say that they have at least left me with enough good memories that I feel like rereading the first few to see how they hold up.

    The age split in Texas surprises me. I would like to see the numbers in even more red states.
  6. Video Games: Thread Simulator 2016

    Since Civ2 I have been a Wonder hoarder who then goes for domination late game with tanks and stuff. Early War is so much better now.
  7. Video Games: Thread Simulator 2016

    Civ6 is the first game I have pre ordered since Warcraft 3. I'm loving it thus far. Like Fez said it feels like I bought two expansions already. Still trying to figure some stuff out, and there has to be some tweeks to the AI (stuck in an ever war with China because they won settle for peace without crazy concessions even as I dominate them). But city-states feel right it's time, Rome''s surprise attack on me was truly unexpected and awesome, and global happiness is just a bad memory.
  8. It's not real. It's a surreal twitter phenomenon.
  9. NFL2016 Week 5: Somebody Needs A Bigger Locker

    Does the interm head coach know that it takes 10 yards to get a first down? 4 yard passes are just so much fun to watch...
  10. US Elections 2016: Why we can't have nice things

    Oh, but Trump wasn't saying he would just jail someone without due process... Certainly he wouldn't build his campaign around such a thing...
  11. US Elections 2016: Why we can't have nice things

    We have a winner. I like this so much.
  12. US Elections 2016: Why we can't have nice things

    Gore tried the 'stand next to the opponent and physically loom' tactic against Bush and it looked horrible. Trump trying against a women in light of his released comments just show that there is no oNE in his campaign that can control him. Someone would have pointed out whathat a bad look it is surely?

    Von is so fast the guy chipping him couldn't even find him. At least we have this Defense.
  14. NFL2016 Week 5: Somebody Needs A Bigger Locker

    It is so striking due to how he allows Wade to call the Defense. Wade goes balls to the wall all day long and the offense is so different. And yes, the draw was probably smart witht he time running out. But thus far everything has been runs up the gut or outside throws. Just mediocre, and yes I know that very well be all Lynch knows right now but his throws in the middle sure looked ok last week.
  15. NFL2016 Week 5: Somebody Needs A Bigger Locker

    Paxton Lynch not impressing in his first start. The Broncos 3 points are a combination of Ok plays and a couple of yellow flags. Defense looks good but is wearing down against the run a bit allowing them to bounce outside. Only a 10 point game but feels like Atlanta is dominating. edit: Kubiak is good at a lot of things but his fucking playcalling drives me insane. End the quarter on a fucking draw.
