    U.S. Politics- SCOTUS 2: The Election Strikes Back

    I thought you had decades of jurisprudence on this, neatly summarized in a thing called "protected classes". Because, while it is possible to decide on a case by case basis that is very wasteful, if we know the arguments that will be made beforehand.
  2. Congrats Belgium. Well done.
  3. It seems easier for a smaller organization to get trapped in the idea that human space flight is a sound idea and a good investment.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    One would expect anyone with some degree of historical knowledge to realize that this is a near-universal rule. Which was clear in Weimar germany as well for example. Conservative terrorists and conservative violence is generally taken less seriously than their progressive-ish counterparts. Probably because they to a much larger extent to the status quo.
  5. Well done Croatia! Still a chance for a first-time world champion.

    Last Call at the Nightshade lounge by Paul Krueger is on sale for $2 ish. A nice urban fantasy novel about a secret society of bartenders using cocktails to help the world stay safe.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    Is that a process to modify the US constitution though? I understood is was a method to throw away the current constitution and establish a successor state.

    Also three more or less Habsburg teams. Which is the important predictor.

    Don’t pirate books, just don’t

    Depending on jurisdiction, no. For example that used to be the interpretation in the Netherlands (more for other media then books), but legislation has been tweaked to exclude downloads after a European court intervened. Dutch law used to be (and probably still is) that you are allowed to make a copy from a source you have access to. It basically protects people making copies in libraries.

    Does anyone care? Fifa ranking is horrible and has never been representative.

    And there was the counter that Belgium was hoping for.

    Amazing Book Deals V.2

    I haven't gotten around to reading them yet. But the apparently light and humorous Mocklore omnibus by Tansy Rayner Roberts is free at Amazon for the nest few days. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CKLS8XS I really like her shorter work and her essay writing.

    U.S. Politics-Hope Floats 2: We All Float Down Here

    Everyone who didn't vote for a democratic candidate in any of the races is to blame for the current situation. It is very simple. It is not like the GOP had been hiding their intent. I do understand people want to hide away from that uncomfortable fact, but that doesn't make it any less true. And it doesn't solve anything when people can keep ignoring this basic principle of US style elections.

    And importantly didn't feel he had to make the attempt in the second one.

    Whatever is this match? France found their game it seems.
