    US Politics: Sit Up Straight and Show Some Respect

    God, of course. I'd heard about that one too and should have included it. It's quite a litany of explanations isn't it.

    US Politics: Sit Up Straight and Show Some Respect

    If Beto O'Rourke wins versus Ted Cruz he should jump the line and run for POTUS in 2020. Seems unlikely to happen though unless something changes, and the Dems would hate to give up that Texas Senate seat were they to get it, but he seems made in a lab otherwise.

    HBO's Westworld VII: Abort?.Retry.Fail

    It seemed like when Ms. William got to look at MiB's profile they had three diagnostic codes which combined to make up a "rare" profile that only fit .0072% (of subjects/guests, presumably). ETA: persecutory subtype delusional paranoid subtype

    US Politics: Sit Up Straight and Show Some Respect

    So we now have at least three arguments coming out of the White House on this. There was the "we can't do anything about it, it's the Dems' policy." There was the "we could maybe stop it but only once the Dems give us border wall money." And now there's the Stephen Miller "we're doing it and it's awesome" argument.
  5. I actually feel like these two teams are two that I almost always hear about as a dark horse that could really make noise but it never ends up happening. Pretty nice start for Croatia here though.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Prequel

    Fuck yeah. Netflix says Parts Unknown will be available indefinitely.
  7. Big time. At this point it's hard not to root against them and feel that they deserve to lose despite their dominance.
  8. The broadcast in the US of this Peru v. Denmark matchup is one of the most strangley commentated that I can remember. Jeebus, another shocking missed opportunity for Peru.
  9. Quite pleased by these early morning results that I was not privy to watch here on the us west coast. Always rooting for La France and couldn't ask for much more from Iceland. Peru is dominating the Danes so far. feels like just a matter of time before they're on the board.

    How the shit is there no thread on Spain v. Portugal? Holy shit, what a match. I was miserably at work and just caught up on the highlights later. Have to think though that for as glorious as it was that it's extremely unlikely that both Spain and Portugal don't romp and dominate their next matches.

    U.S. Politics: Would You Like A Warranty With Your Magic Beans?

    Isn't it kind of mind-blowing to think back on how nightmarish the Bush years felt and then to reflect on how enormously more horrific the current situation is? How naive we were.

    Three Californias?

    Thank you in Icelandic!

    Three Californias?

    Semi-serious question: Does anyone have any idea should any of these oft-pondered efforts to secede actually go forward and happen one day what would happen to the citizenship status of people in said states? For example, if I live in California and have for years but was born in another state and lived there for years, that other state stays in the union but California secedes...Do I get dual citizenship? Am I forced to forfeit my US citizenship if I stay in California?

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Prequel

    I'm actually way overdue to do Fargo S1 which I did not see when it came out. I've seen 2 and 3. Without spoilers I feel like there's something of a consensus that S3 was the weakest but still good and that there's more of a debate between whether 1 or 2 was better with 2 maybe taking it. I loved 2 and really need to see 1.
