  1. I don't speak Latin but I minored in Mansclamations and they're all over the place here. Meanwhile, if Putin deploys nuclear weapons in Ukraine the ONLY acceptable response is the destruction of Moscow or whatever rat hole to which Putin is most likely proximate (if you wanna try and be more humane). Anything less is an invitation for Pakistan and India to write 'acceptable U.S. response conditions' into their war plans for one another. BAD BAD BAD The entire construct of MAD demands that the cost of using nuclear weapons exceeds the gain. Up to and including the end of life entirely as part of the wager. Some cruise missile strikes aren't enough. A nuclear offensive is not only an attack on NATO but on the planet itself. It cannot be allowed or, through deference in response (a refusal to further escalate), unanswered. That's the game. Playing half-assed is the quickest way to lose.
  2. You are not taking enough. Capitol offenses demand capital punishments! Chop him up! Chop him up! ETA: I swear I wrote "Capitol offenses demand capital punishments!" Because, like, that's the whole joke. But it came out "Capital offenses demand capital punishments!" Which is, like, duh. Sorry, so edited for grammar I guess. I'm gonna use my Blame-the-Phone credit on this one.
  3. It's so much more fun to watch Jacoby Brissette mosey into pressure when he's playing for a team you despise. Nobody takes the snap like Jacoby. He drops back to pass with all the alacrity and enthusiasm of a smoker wrapping up his break.
  4. So what I'm hearing "Mr. President, we must not allow a madness gap!" It seems clear to me that the only way to counter an irrational despot is to get one of our own. That's right, I'm now Trump Supporter Jace. It's a mad world out there. We gotta catch up before we're left behind.
  5. Hollywood Brown was holding the Ravens offense back. The fact that they got a 1 for him is astounding.
  6. Aight I didn't say they'd tie the Texans and get shut out by Jags But I did say they're overrated overpaid suckers who suck
  7. Fun is for children. I spelled it out in May. Ryan is washed. Reich is a fucking idiot. The defense is built to shaken to death by quality QBs. Gilmore is washed. No WRs (Pittman is a good young player he ain't no star) and the o-line is an overrated overpaid shambles. I saw this coming and am glad to see it passed
  8. Your #1 WR and #2 WR are out. You can't pass protect worth shit. Jonathan Taylor had 9 rushes. He didn't get hurt or nothin neither (Oh, and that #2 WR is a second round rookie with two career targets, no catches, a drop, and now one missed game out of two eligible)
  9. Right on, I'm caught up now. Yeah, I was just examining the sequence factors that led to war as opposed to dedicated opposituon. I wish no affiliation with whatever madness these people are frothing.
  10. Huh? Nah, I'm saying that U.S.A existed in opposition to Imperial Germany years before war was declared in 1917. And also that one of the disastrous consequences of unrestricted sub warfare was that USA went from opponent to open enemy. Hitler's relation to USA in 1941 is basically the same thing over again. Again with disastrous consequences for the German leadership. So what I'm actually trying to convey here is that Putin would be a fool to try and politic-play himself into some situation where NATO has declared war on Russia. If you're Russia you'd rather fight Ukraine with America in its corner than Ukraine and America both in the ring at the same time. Does that make any sense?
  11. Well I'm not about to be up with whatever I'm sure he's trying to say. But he's not, basically, incorrect. Nazi Germany and America were enemies throughout WW2, for economic reasons alone. Just like, by 1915, the Kaiser's Germany and U.S.A were enemies. For economic purposes, again. There's no Jewish conspiracy of course, it's basic geopolitics as driven through economy. Like literally the easiest thing to grasp about a nation state and its policies. In 1914 U.S.A would have happily supported Germany's war effort exactly as it supported the Entente's. But the British said no, you are our supplier or no ones. And U.S.A took that deal because we're a nation of lazy greedy assholes and thus became a nation of lazy greedy asshole war profiteers. So when Soviet troops are dying wearing American made boots, dying driving American made trucks, and dying firing American made rifles as the Nazis drive on Moscow in '41... C'mon, you're already enemies. Yes, in Hitler's worm eaten brain that pretty straightforward political opposition is some kind of Jewish conspiracy. But that doesn't mean the broader fact that America and Nazisim (used to be) are openly opposed to one another. Now, where it's again a-okay to point out what a dumb fuck Hitler is in this calculation (setting aside the rabid anti-Semitism for dispassionate analysis), is that it's better to have America happy and fat playing banker of the Allies than it is to have them come out their weight on you too. The real failure of unrestricted submarine warfare wasn't strategic (failing to starve Britannia), it was a political failure because it made U.S.A a naked belligerent. One of a hundred lessons from the first World War that Hitler was too batshit to learn.
  12. Mercedes Lewis caught passes from David Garrard, y'all
  13. I mean what it probably is is some kind of hover drone with cray cray stealth capabilities being operated by a high speed gal in the belly of a cruiser in the Mediterranean. But aliens is just funner
  14. I don't know man, none of us know anything man that's the one thing that you can know you know what I mean man???
  15. I'm ready to believe. Why not? Alien? Matrix world? Why not? Fuck it.
  16. Mr Hackett should just start planning to take the family to Greece during the spring now. He ain't gonna have a job to worry about.
  17. Kenny Moore is 'one of the best slot guys in the league' everyone knows it! One of the rare things Ballard has done wisely regarding dispensation of $$$s, not indulging Moore's holdout. Overrated dork just made Christian Kirk look like a 20 million dollar man.
  18. Weaklings should have held out for an idol clue.
  19. Yes. I think 'virtual tickets' will exist very very soon
