  1. It really seems more and more by the day that you guys are screwed. I have not seen a single report in weeks that is both optimistic and realistic at the same time. The optimists are living in a fantasy land that does not exist while the realists are deeply pessimistic about the country's short term future.

    I think it's possible, but I don't know how bullish one should be about this take. I do, however, think there's a good chance that right wing populism spreads across Europe over the next handful of years, which is a scary thought to have.

    @Rippounet, Why do you think he will recover from his terrible polling? My understanding is that he was never that popular, but he was the best of bad choices initially and then was the obvious choice once it was just down to him and Le Pen. Since the election his polling has consistently gone down. I doubt he can win reelection absent some kind of miraculous turnaround.
  4. How long does it stay set in the winter? I've completed a few missions now, I think the last one was robbing a train, but man does the snow slow you down and these missions are taking a long time. I feel like the game is a healthy balance between the fun of GTA and the realness of the Mafia series.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Art of the Rewatch edition

    I watched the latest Mission Impossible movie over the weekend and I'm shocked to say that I found it to be kind of boring. I've seen them all, some are good, some are not, but I don't recall thinking that any of them were boring. Odd.

    So it seems it’s cakes and guillotines time. The only question is will this lead to the far right taking over?
  8. It could, but it won’t. Your dirty Seachickens are going down tonight!!!
  9. Wait, Tua didn’t win the Heisman?!?!?!? Is this why people are rioting in Paris?

    US Politics: Sing us a song, you're the Tariff man

    From my perspective, the conversation had shifted to a discussion of what means justified the ends, and it seemed like people were pretty willing to say do whatever it takes to win. I personally think that will lead us to a horrific situation.
  11. A PS4 Pro has been procured! Red Dead Redemption 2 is so dope.
  12. Alas, I did not buy a console on Cyber Monday. There are some good deals still though, so maybe I'll still get one. I'm really tempted by Red Dead Redemption 2.

    US Politics: Sing us a song, you're the Tariff man

    Generally speaking they don't, but these are different times and 2016 somewhat showed that. People were disgusted by Trump, but enough were also disgusted with Clinton. If you run a likable person verses Trump, you should win. Run someone who is willing to sink in the swamp with Trump and you might just get a repeat of 2016.

    US Politics: Sing us a song, you're the Tariff man

    Never. Ever. Gonna. Happen! McConnell wouldn't just lose a primary, Republicans would get swept nationwide as the Trump base stays home and/or creates chaos. The last thing Republicans want is to get destroyed in an election that will impact redistricting. McConnell would possibly stab Trump in the back and remove him from office, but it won't take place before the 2020 elections are over.

    Bond 25: Hiddleswift Down

    You scared me man! Craig is my favorite Bond, even though he only had one great Bond film (and it's arguably the greatest ever). Ewan McGregor could be a good candidate.
