    Rothfuss XV: Move along, nothing to see here

    For one of the “character v. Character” playoffs on a sci-fi website he had Devi beating Tom Bombadil by seducing Goldberry for some hot girl on girl action... (I’m not kidding and I cannot find a link)

    Scott Lynch's Thorn of Emberlain is Completed

    The Eldren, as a fallen (we suppose) technological advanced civilization, are fascinating to me. Their massive constructions with a seemingly artistic bent. I’d love to know more about them.

    Any word on a publication date for The Thorn of Emberlain?

    Tolkien 3.0

    Ran, I think that rather nicely sums up my view of the world. We are conglomeration of individual actions. If we change the hearts and minds of enough individuals the world is a better place. Sadly, the reverse is also true.

    u.s. politics: sundowning on the american empire

    I worked for a law firm until last October. Since then I have been employed as a “corporate counsel”.

    Very smart. I like that.

    I really might. I’m tempted by Harris more than Warren or Sanders. I’m opposed to Trump and I want him out of office in 2021.

    You’d still think I’d see some of her adverts here or there. I do frequent fairly left of center discussion forums.

    FYI. I haven’t seen anything from Harris in SC so far.

    Because the piece of wood is unbalanced. When Jack tried to climb on it flipped over. It could not support the weight of two people.

    It’s so odd, I’ve never owned a firearm or felt the need to carry one with me to feel safe. And it’s not that I dislike them. I’ve gone to ranges and rented weapons it’s fun to shoot, just don’t need one with me.

    Sgt. Robert Gomez on KVIA the El Paso ABC affiliate said they only know of one shooter, but the situation is fluid and there may be more. The link I'm offering has live coverage. https://www.kvia.com/news/el-paso/watch-live-updates-on-active-shooter-reported-near-cielo-vista/1103239371

    Police - a thin blue line, a wad of cash and scary guns

    I have to ask are police now trained to shoot at everything?

    Yes. But what you are describing isn’t “Gerrymandering”. It is targeted voter suppression based upon the results of internal state elections that are impacted by Gerrymandering. That is two steps removed from actual Gerrymandering in US Senate or Presidential elections three steps from SCOTUS nominations and confirmation. That’s my point.

    I would love to see that happen. I think single member districts could be renamed single member fiefdoms and it wouldn’t be inaccurate.

    If they think their votes don’t matter in US Senate and US Presidential elections then they don’t understand how Gerrymandering is actually accomplished.
  22. Ser Scot A Ellison

    u.s. politics: sundowning on the american empire

    That could be achieved via internal Gerrymandering of State Legislative districts, but, again, you cannot Gerrymander US Senate elections because Senators are elected on a state wide basis. The same is true for Presidential elections with the exception of Nebraska and Maine who both aportion some of their electoral votes based on districts.

    What do you mean? Gerrymandering doesn’t impact US Senate elections and impacts only two states out of 50 in Presidential Elections.

    That’s fine. Partisan Gerrymandering still has no direct impact on picking SCOTUS Justices.
