    US politics - When the Barr's so low.

    I assume that Beto wasn't thinking of welfare organizations tied to churches. How are those treated fiscally in the US? this touches on Mlle. Zabzies thread. I think it's ok to float these ideas at this point, probably should refrain from it after there is a nominee for president.

    I think they don't need that particular reminder IndyStar Guardian I agree with solo, maximum turnout is the only hope. And for that you need inspiring policies and people to sell them convincingly. You won't convince the orthodox by pointing out that Barabbas is a criminal, when they are set on crucifying the troublemaker.

  6. The title alludes to Hank Williams I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. I thought of going with - It was the yellowhammer and not the lark - , because dawn is nowhere near in sight and all the suicide for believing tactical fake news at the end of the play, but I wasn't sure I remember Romeo and Juliet correctly.

    @larrytheimp, you opened the path to a rich Krupp of puns here. @Anthony Appleyard, maybe the Complete Cyvasse Rules thread has an answer to your questions. (I've asked to move your thread, btw.)

    Women's World Cup 2019

    Congratulations to the USWNT. I'll be really mad if Rose Lavelle isn't chosen as most valuable player of the match and best player of the tournament. The way the quality of the US forward play dropped when she was subbed off against England was telling.

    Small Questions v. 10106

    The most likely inspiration for Tully. I learned this quite some time ago from this post. :)

    Hello from Eurocommieland

    You summoned ther Djinn? Also, hi Lyanna. I came so late to this board, that I've only the slightest inkling what any of this means, but I have the feeling that I am (or was?) the mud in northern France (at least at some point).

    Imagination and Society

    @lacuna , that's because Scot created this thread when Guy Kilmore quoted Death's conversation with his daughter here.
  13. I can't claim to know much more than you do, but here is how I approach things like this: I take a look at the Wikipedia page on The Troubles , skim the page for usefull information and scroll right down to -see also-, references- and -external links-. There I found a link to an old documentary called Ulster (10:27 min) that gives some backrground and a name your daughter might identify with, Bernadette Devlin. Here is a youtube portrait of Bernadette Devlin (21:24 min). You can just continue following links until you find something interesting during the 1990s. You can also play one of the few interesting songs by U2 to get the feeling.

    The Drunk Thread: Just Look at the Flowers

    @A True Kaniggit You've never had a (dry) Martini (glass of Gin from a bottle standing next to a bottle of Vermouth for no longer than half an hour) ? This may lead to your expulsion from the board . The taste of Gin is defined by the Juniper berry. Think of resin, pineneedles and forest herbs. There are a lot of varieties of Gin, some are close to bitters or herbal liquors, though less sweet. Nina Simone - Gin House Blues
