  1. The new edit and quote system got me again. Sorry about the double post.
  2. Killer final 2 eps. I lean toward the supernatural being involved. To do otherwise you have to create all sorts of explanations for various things. If Lottie can to some degree command animals it certainly does help explain how at least some survived the ordeal so long. Seems unlikely that human flesh was the main foodstuff ingested during such a long period. They'd run out of people. Yes, psychedelics are involved and that could be a reason the supernatural is not involved. However, there is the trope of these types of drugs making people more susceptible to possession by spirits. That may have been Misty's intention. It seems likely this is some sort of dark shamanic spirit and it apparently needs something from humans. And it's really hard to explain the Eyeless Man and everything around it in a rational way. Could be a Wendigo. That would fit the setting and cannibalism, anyway.
  3. Bonus episode: Inside the craziest meeting of the Trump presidency https://www.axios.com/trump-oval-office-meeting-sidney-powell-a8e1e466-2e42-42d0-9cf1-26eb267f8723.html
  4. Opinion | The Russia Sanctions That Could Actually Stop Putin The only sanctions that stand a chance of deterring Putin are going to hurt us, too. https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2022/01/21/russia-sanctions-stop-putin-energy-markets-us-invasion-527524
  5. Two major past backers of Kyrsten Sinema are threatening to end their support if she won't relent on the filibuster and get election reform done: EMILY's List and NARAL. A fresh sign of rising (and almost-surely-unsuccessful) pressure from the left. https://www.politico.com/minutes/congress/01-18-2022/sinemas-backer-threat/
  6. Not reading more than a few posts here as I have seen only 2 to 3 eps. Great show. I had heard it was, but it exceeded my expectations. I didn't want to buy Showtime just to see this one show, but then got in a show hole and did it anyway. Not sure that I'm sold on the cannibalism actually happening, but they definitely are hinting at it rather strongly. Those outfits are creepy as hell. I had thought based on random spoilers I read that Misty was the queen, but apparently not. I just saw her take a different mask off.
  7. This just happened to me actually. My doctor's office explained that it's become a standard delay tactic of the insurance companies. Scared the hell out of me because no one warned me and I just saw on the website of the insurer that I was denied coverage for my treatments. It did delay care. My doctor was forced to go to this meeting and lay out the case why I need the treatment with an insurance company doctor. I wonder who is paying for all that mess.
  8. They were in the first Knights of the Old Republic game.
  9. Sinema speech turbocharges primary challenge buzz The effort to draft Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego went into overdrive after the Arizona senator closed the door on weakening the filibuster. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/01/14/sinema-speech-primary-challenge-527110
  10. Obama backs Biden's call to change filibuster rules and pass voting rights legislation In his first op-ed since leaving office, the former president wrote about the work that must go into protecting democracy. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/01/12/barack-obama-change-filibuster-rules-voting-rights-527007
  11. Judge mulls whether Trump’s silence on Jan. 6 could amount to ‘agreement’ with rioters During a hearing on civil lawsuits stemming from the Capitol attack, Donald Trump’s lawyers claimed sweeping immunity for the former president. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/01/10/trump-immunity-jan-6-526839
  12. Ron Johnson is expected to seek a third term in the Senate this year despite a prior vow to serve no more than two. His decision would give Republicans their top candidate in a critical swing state — but also give Democrats a motivating foe. https://www.politico.com/minutes/congress/01-7-2022/johnsons-decision/
  13. ‘Groveling’ Ted Cruz Mocked After Extremely Awkward Tucker Carlson Interview The Texas senator went on Fox News to seek forgiveness for offending the host. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/ted-cruz-tucker-carlson-terrorist-capitol-riot_n_61d7a082e4b0bb04a642b29c

  15. Great season. Loved that they brought back Stingray and also he became a key part of the story. Kenny is an excellent addition to the cast. It sounds like the 6 season plan is just a general plan and not set in stone. I'm pretty confident these writers could figure out a way to go longer. I was wondering how they were going to get out of the dojos closing bet. I thought perhaps Cobra Kai would lose and then just refuse to honor the deal. Pretty clear Daniel has no intention of closing.
