    The Orville Season 2

    While I agree that relationship stuff is getting a little old (this ep took me 2x20min viewings to get through), I gotta say I really enjoyed the

    UK Politics: The Edge of Destruction

    And it completely disenfranchises anyone who votes for a smaller party. Again, why not just use instant run off? It's simple, people just rank their choice in order. And it stops the need for tactical voting. Ie, you could vote for a smaller remain party confident that even if they don't get a seat your vote will still count, and go towards someone who isnt ukip2.0.

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    One game at a time. Unless I'm on an MMO kick, though I don't play many games online these days.
  4. I've heard Axelrod argue (hardly an impartial source, but I agree with him here) that if Obama started publicly, and unilaterally making a bigger deal of Russian influence in the election the backlash would've been immense, and it would've helped Trump even more. Would've looked to a very large portion of the country llike he was putting his finger on the scale, which is exactly what he was seeking to avoid.
  5. I think also characterizing the Russian investigation as 'silliness' when you have the president's son taking meetings with Russian operatives, and the campaign chairman sharing months of internal polling data with people closely associated with Russian intelligence services, is stretching things. Mueller may not have been able to get enough evidence to recommend prosecution, but it sure looks shady as fuck, and very much worth investigating.

    Exercise and Fitness: bro science debunked

    I've had shin splints a couple times before, both when I'd just started running, and right after I took a 6 month break due to a knee injury. If they're not too bad you might be able to back off the mileage for a few weeks and run through the discomfort. But if they're really bad take a couple weeks off and start up again slowly. If it is shin splints it's really common, and shouldn't be a game changer. Just the legs adapting to the stress being put on them, and a signal you're perhaps pushing the mileage a little too hard too quickly.

    Aussie Thread: Democracy Sausage

    Probably, which really says something about the state of our government. They've been an unmitigated disaster, plunging from one crisis to another, infighting, resignations, Fraser Anning, and some very shady finances. Yet they still poll 5-10% of the national vote. Boggles the mind really. Just hope Palmer doesn't pick up any seats with his latest ego project.

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    Pretty much with @Werthead on this one. DA:O never lived up to be the revamped BG2 it was advertised as with simplifed combat and a not so great plot and pacing. DA: I was a series of overlong fetch quests with some truly cringe worthy writing and terrible combat, and was then massively overshadowed by the Witcher 3. ME2 is probably the closest they've come to a classic in recent times and that was what... 9 years ago? (not going to buy into the shooter vs crpg debate) Honestly never played DA2 after hearing how it was rushed out half finished, and seeing the randomly spawning mobs in the pre-release demo. May have to go back and have another look.

    Looks like an election will be called for the 18th of May today. Finally!

    Billionaires, making the world a better place (for them)

    Sure. But I was being pragmatic, and I don't think zero billionaires is a realistic goal, short of an apocalypse.

    Billionaires, making the world a better place (for them)

    Pragmatic me thinks money talks, and having a few billionaires with some kind of social conscience is better than none. Communist me thinks redistribute it all via firing squad

    Exercise and Fitness: bro science debunked

    Well done! 4km is not nothing, and honestly getting to the stage you can jog those first few is the hardest bit in my experience*. From there you can train yourself to anything. Honestly many days I struggle and procrastinate just getting out the door. It's half the battle. *until the 30km wall but that's a whole different thing.

    UK Politics: What Goes DUP Must Come Down

    Can anyone explain how a fresh election to resolve Brexit would be perfectly democratic, but a 2nd referendum on Brexit undemocratic? The irony of course being that a 2nd referendum would actually give a clear course to follow, while an election may very well end in a similar mess.

    UK Politics: What Goes DUP Must Come Down

    Pretty much this. Any other option relies on coming up with a coherent plan. Hasn't happened in the last few years, no indication it'll suddenly happen now. The EU may not be willing to kick the can further down the road in the absence of one, even if an extension is asked for.
