    US Politics: Sit Up Straight and Show Some Respect

    Thanks. I'm not seeing support for "thousands of times" in here, but I do see that it happened. Certainly it's bad and I would support investigations to verify. I'm ot sure what such an investigation would look like. Hairy situation for sure.

    I've never heard of the site personally but I am informed by people I consider trustworthy that it's an established investigative journalism group. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center_for_Investigative_Reporting

    Cord Cutting Advice - Not the newborn type

    We cancelled Comcast a while ago. We had cancelled TV and phone (we only had the phone service because it was cheaper than not having it), and when we did our Internet service became unreliable. Seems insane that they'd do that on purpose, and I'm not saying they did, but... We went to Fios. Installer was good and service has been rock-solid since then. We specifically decided not to do video service, even though it was the same price as just Internet, because we are sick of dealing with bundles and having to play the cancellation game every two years. We bought an over the air antenna for $20 to get local channels (you can get ones with better range for more, but this one works for us) and we have Netflix and Amazon Prime. Honestly, we don't miss cable most of the time. You can always buy the occasional show that you really want to see on Amazon if it's not part of the included streaming video packages. Sports are the big problem because most of the sports streaming services have blackouts -- if you're looking at a dedicated subscription service for a specific sports league, make sure you can actually watch your team. If you just want the national sports channels you mentioned, Hulu TV or YouTube TV probably have you covered. I would agree that no Internet TV service really has all bases covered, it's a bummer. But you might consider just not having it at all and see how much you care. In a vacuum, all else being equal, having it would probably be nicer than not having it. But I don't think it's nice enough to justify the cost.

    Chris Hardwick (of Nerdist) to be fired--from everything?

    False accusations about stuff like this are pretty rare, although I understand the discomfort; in general I default to believing women, who don't usually get the benefit of the doubt while the men they accuse get every benefit of the doubt possible. For this situation specifically, people I trust who are in that scene corroborate it.
  6. Denmark deserved that one. Peru diving left and right in the last several minutes, and I swear that looked like an honest to god dribble near the corner.

    Three Californias?

    As far as I can tell on Facebook, voters of both parties think it's a ploy by the other. I don't think a time of major political polarization is a good time to change the makeup of the Union, the circumstances of the last one notwithstanding. Who could trust the other side to play it straight?
  8. Really impressive by Iceland, the penalty save was tremendous and the other defenders put in work as well. Argentina looked pretty lackluster outside of Messi.

    Match Day 2: Uruguay v Egypt; Morocco v Iran; Spain v Portugal

    Is it just me or does Fox have Morocco listed on the scoreboard as MAR Edit: never mind, that's the FIFA-assigned code.

  12. The US will cease military drills with South Korea. It's unclear what North Korea will do in return or whether they will hold to any agreement; theoretically they will commit to denuclearization, but there are no terms or timetable. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-kim-summit-trump-says-we-have-developed-a-very-special-bond-at-end-of-historic-meeting/2018/06/12/ff43465a-6dba-11e8-bf86-a2351b5ece99_story.html?utm_term=.fb54bfd848a0 If this works it will be a great thing, but nothing about this makes me super confident at this juncture.

    2018 Reading Self-Challenge

    5. Fool's Assassin, Hobb. Very good, return to form. 6. Norse Mythology, Gaiman. Fine, kind of simplistically written. 7. The Whitefire Crossing, Schafer. Pretty good debut, a little sloppy in some ways I hope the author will improve over time with a good editor but pretty complex. https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5605419-rob
