  1. If you have a skill edge, forcing the action in a loose game is a good strategy, especially in position. But I'm mostly trying to avoid tilt triggers. And you've probably won thousands from those same players, just not as memorably.
  2. You're just waiting to drop Shock and Awe on the poor fools, aren't you? Chats is an attractive woman, categorically. But made up, well dressed, fully armed, and operational Chats is a galactic menace.
  3. No one MAKES me drink my own piss.
  4. There'll be no one to stop us this time. I watched several of Nora's Guide to the Galaxy, and your since your posting enthusiasm here largely follows standard punctuation, I 'm sure you're even more excited than you sound. Also check out Nora's youtube. It's obviously a cromulent rec for this topic.
  5. It's probably a comfort for you to be that certain. Sure food and fuel prices are up dramatically, but that's Trumps fault. Plus bottom two quintile's employment and wage growth have gone negative, but that's just the logical conclusion of Trump's obviously racist policies taken to their fifth year, and at least we've got an ethical, uncorruptable leader using his keen intellect to stop covid in it's track now, and the emptier shelves are just because everyone is doing so well it is causing a demand side crisis. Large cap corporate media says so. Their incentives are pure. The current decision makers are obviously making calls based on electoral popularity, so there's no question our system is sound, fundamentally. So I can sleep well there at least. It no longer shocks me that people who rail against corporatism are unquestioningly behind a combination of government, corporate media, and mega cap bio tech companies. Not because it makes logical sense, just because I've seen that too often. <not that I'm a fan of corporatism per se, but used corporatism instead capitalism there because I believe that corporatism gets more and more negative as the scale increases, and in fact starts to crowd out capitalism.>
  6. More like one glenlivet and a couple cabs then beers and a one random hennessey. Judging by last night.
  7. Thanks JL. Congrats DnE. See you all at draft. The video chat function is sociable. Hoping to see the end of boiled leather's kitchen remodel next draft.
  8. 2 2nds. 2 3rds. 5 money leagues. Missed on the smallest one. If Dak and Kyler got right sooner would have been 2nd in the big money league too and that delta would more than cover the other 4. Alas.
  9. I mostly put the my picks in drunk sunday/monday football. But if you want me to pay attention, I could. Even though you're yonger, I'm still taller and probably less bald.
  10. I wouldn't blame snow on I95 for Washington not getting things done. Maybe I was a little antagonistic there though. I don't trust 95% of congress to look out for the regular folk however. Too many incentives to join the establishment once you get there, where ever you started from ideologically.
  11. Yes, almost certainly better. 1300 minus the unsustainable systems is still roughly 10-50 conservatively systems that are sustainable, compared to everything in the Sol basket. I don't see how the counter argument holds, especially if it's more like 100-500, as the vast majority of gate systems had more habitability than the Belt. You could make a counter argument maybe that the Navoo colonizes a nearby system, and humanity spreads out via generation ships, but though I havent run numbers on exponential growth in that scenario, the gates surely increased surviabiliyt and growth potential. Though I wonder, the voluntary extinction people would probably feel the same regardless of 1000 more worlds. Doesnt change the math in the longer run.
  12. Sweet summer child. Follow the narrative. Reporters are independent seekers of truth, and not employees of large corporations. Collectivism is great. Next time the leader will be all about helping everyone, instead of worrying about the next shiv and paying off his cronies. We're almost so close to perfect, just got to get rid of that pesky human nature. There's plenty of room for a fascist sort of government gets to control all the health care compromise. Affordable Care Act turned providers into collectivists instead of individual practitioners. Really there should be a mcbigski's wager where if you think you have covid you could talk with a non collectivized provider about whether or not invectermin or hydroxichlorine are right for you, and live with the consequences. The people that don't believe in the Atlantic don't deserve to live anyway, so what's the harm in trying? A, I'm all for local control, and bottom up power. I hope you come around to obvious issues with too much federal control. Higher stakes get more corrupted. Do you think otherwise? Tolerance FTW! Be careful, if Eric Adams ends up an unperson, you could get banned for that sort of comment. PA people can drive in snow, right? Talk about smallest violins. I get that we have better plowing in new england, but have i never gotten stuck ever in any situation that took more than three guys to push the vehicle out.
  13. Well, I did OK this year. Most expensive league, got 3rd for a break even. 2nd most, had regular season title (Jonathan Taylor keeper), and second place playoffs. Positive return. Got Jamarr Chased in my second most expensive league. What are going to do? Next two leagues, lost the finals to my sister in the cousins's league. First fantasy year for her, she mostly won because she wanted to draft Mahomes first round but couldn't find him in the player list until she already got Taylor and Ekeler autodrafted. I was still a Ronald Jones injury or Adams/Rodgers touchdown away. Bust still a plus. Squeaked out a 3rd place in the casino poker player league, at least I beat the regular season win leader in the bronze game. Missed the money in my cheapest cash league, but 4 keepers auction, 200 budget and will have Chase, Waddle, Elijah Moore, and Lance for $24 next year. Also 4th or 5ht or so in experts and about the same in bwb league. Might cut out 1-3 leagues next year, 7 is definitely too many.
  14. It was visceral to be sure, but even in the spot after the knife comes out before she started cutting, I assumed we were in a clone the whole arm universe. Pretty sure there was a guy on the Cant that could have grown his arm back except spoiler Cant gets atomized. That was a book thing about a decade before my hip issues so skipped the tag.
  15. Gettleman in Experts. +120 to get Jaxomed. What side do you take?
