    Chernobyl (miniseries)

    Two so far.

    International thread 2

    Agreed. Iran is more or less a contained regional power, and a mid sized one at that.

    Chernobyl (miniseries)

    I was tired, and had lots of shit to do the next morning after I dropped the girls at school, so just short of midnight Monday night I climbed into bed with little more determination than to read maybe a chapter of Tad Williams new book. Several chapters in I realized that the 2nd episode of Chernobyl dropped, so I dropped the book. Maybe a bit, I figured. Get a taste, consume the rest tomorrow. Riiiiight. I'm still not sure if I ended up actually sleeping. Yeah. I felt witness to some dread parable.

    The history of this community board.

    In some variation, anyway.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    The girls really wanted to see it, so I took them to Shazam last night. They loved it. Me, not so much. It was better than I thought it would be though, so it's got that going for it.

    MCUniverse: Cat Scratch Fever edition.

    Seeing it at the first showing on the Thursday, center seats, IMAX 3D. Teenage me is crowing hard from the overlook.

    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    Recently finished Ruin of Kings, and was far from impressed. I did manage to finish it though, which is something. I guess. I have no interest in pursuing further. Apocalypse Nyx was great. No surprise, Hurley rarely lets me down. Speaking of, her recently released Light Brigade is on top of my tbr pile. Currently reading The Raven Tower by Leckie and it's good so far. I have thoughts, but will save them for later. Nonfiction wise, chipping away at Applebaum's Red Famine, Mieville's October, and Weatherford's Secret History of the Mongol Queens.

    That's a ways out, though The Light Brigade drops tomorrow.
  10. Glad to have her. ---- Meanwhile, a Canadian previously tried in China on drug trafficking charges [found guilty and sentenced] was retried and sentenced to death. Fucking China, man. Vindictive.
  11. Even if DMC is right, it's a hell of a thing to cause this kind of fear and stress on individuals and families right before the fucking holidays. How's he doing these days, Kal? Since deleting my FB account several months ago I haven't seen any updates.
  12. Texas court ends Obamacare... [low whistle]
  13. My daughters loved it, even the youngest who is really starting to rebel against anything animated. Won't even watch She-Ra, that one. Myself, I admire how they nailed the comic book styling that Ang Lee was clearly going for in his try at Hulk. It had all the feels, the humor was well done, the feels were real. Very good show.
  14. Mmn.... probably doing it properly and at length our judicial system deciding the US didn't make their case and deny extradition on said grounds. I suspect the chances of this are actually higher than I might've initially thought. We're judging her alleged crimes based on ours and not US law, after all. I'd have to do some reading. What a clusterfuck though.
  15. So, Canadian law enforcement picks up Meng at the request of their US counterparts, pissing China right the fuck off. China makes demands and threats. Canada responds with we're a country that abides by the rule of law [yadda yadda] so China grabs one of our former diplomats on charges of espionage [apparently] while decreasing tariffs on US autos from 45 to 15%, and then [takes a deeps breath] yesterday Trump, bumbling cockeyed idiot that he is, fucks it all up by stating he'd be willing to trade Meng back to China for trade concessions and shit. I think that's enough to just cut her loose then, hmn? Or should we go through the motion first, then deny the extradition?
