  1. Possibly a terrible injury for Portland's Nurkic late out West. Fuck. Hurts slightly less since they added Kantor but still hurts enormously assuming he's done for the year. Just when Portland was looking poised to have the 3 or 4 seed.

    US Politics: A Farewell to Arms

    I'm a little bit off of the ledge from the last two days, and it's the whole "the population at large doesn't care that much about the Russia investigation / the 2018 midterms weren't fought on the Russia investigation" thing.
  3. I think that possibility is totally on the table and the ending, if one interprets it in the most pessimistic way, looks that way. But the way that the simulation seems to offer the choice...in a sort of red pill / blue pill kind of way, makes me think a bit. But I did also totally wonder about something you touched on...was this hive a place ships ended up accidentally because space travel is hard, or was it luring ships as you suggest. I'd be curious if anyone who knows the book knows whether that text offers concrete answers / how much does this short on Netflix mirror that book?

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Endgame

    "In my opinion every Leo DiCaprio movie would be better as a Matt Damon movie." - Paraphrasing Bill Simmons uttering some utter garbage. And that's not even cause I hate Damon or anything. It's just laughable on its face. Django with Damon? Wolf of Wall Street with Damon? Please.
  5. There's something that I think was fairly clear in what happened which was that their craft had indeed ended up in some nether regions of space where this hive-like place existed where ships and their crews were lost. And also clear is that there was a Matrix-like simulation being applied to the folks that ended up there to keep them from understanding their plight. Less clear to me: was that being created from a benevolent angle and the entity that was doing it really didn't want to expose them to reality and only did it under duress? Also unclear: was the arachnid the one and only entity and if so, was it eating these people while sedating them with the Matrix-like dreamworld? I think so, but I'm not 100% clear. This one stuck with me a lot too.
  6. And (hopefully) two teams taken down by Dana Altman and Oregon.

    U.S. Politics: Impoverished In Squalor

    Yeah, not only that, but one might think that Mueller ought to have thought that Barr was uniquely unqualified to make this call given that he auditioned for the job on the grounds of limiting the investigation, etc...

    Everyone like this guy more the more they learn about him. And I mean everyone.
  9. Oregon stared the second half with about 7 scoreless minutes and still won the game by 19. Very excited to see how they do against Virginia. Slightly switching gears I checked one site's list of the top recruiting classes for next year having been fairly clueless about where that was at. Some fairly good news for the Pac-12 with Washington at #21, Oregon at 11, USC at 4, and Arizona at #1. Arizona and USC both had two five stars and two four stars. But I was particularly surprised by seeing Arizona up there with Miller's situation. Now if anything happens with him this off-season it will be really interesting to see what these recruits do like how Shaq's kid bailed last year.

    So how does one square the fact that Schiff has been saying there's collusion and now Mueller is apparently saying that there isn't? I'd imagine that Schiff is going to be getting this question.

    So it sounds like what's being released says that Muller found no collusion with Russia to influence election not enough evidence on obstruction. Sounds like a best case scenario for Trump so far. Wow.

    U.S. Politics: Impoverished In Squalor

    It has been interesting how much Trumpworld has at least postured that they're OK with releasing it. Or by Trumpworld I really mean the GOP write large. So if Barr doesn't release it all does that not raise suspicion even more?
  13. It's like when Mek encounters Kelllhus....What are you!?!
  14. What an agonizing loss for Wofford. McGee goes 0-12 from three, and so many of them looked like they were going in. Kentucky did a great job of running after him, but he still got enough looks that normally drop for him...if he'd just gone 3-12 who knows how that games ends up. The @Rhom's of the world must be breathing a sigh of relief to advance and likely get their man back for the next round now.

    U.S. Politics: Impoverished In Squalor

    Interesting response, thanks. I guess another way I could have phrased the question is to ask when people say they don't want to nominate a white man is what they really mean is that they don't want to nominate a straight white man? It seems like Sanders and O'Rourke have quite different approaches to this issue so far. Sanders, as you touched on, seems to want to say that identity-type stuff is a big distraction from the economic issues. O'Rourke seems to be trying to take a get out in front of it approach and talk about how he is indeed privileged in a sort of "I acknowledge your lack of privilege by acknowledging that I've had unfair advantages" kind of way.
