    MLB 2018: Sho(hei) Me What You Got

    German is certainly on a "innings" limit - although as an aside let's all agree teams have much better analytics then we do and it's not only probably a "pitch count" limit, but a relative "stressful pitch count" limit - but he's only got 60 innings so far, right? Wouldn't be too worried bout that.

    We don't know, when exactly and why Marwyn became interested in magic. My guess, is that it happened years after he became a maester. I think, that originally he was just some person, that for whatever reasons went to Oldtown, and became an acolyte at Citadel, aspiring to become a maester. Probably he was the kind of person, that wanted to study, to learn new things, to be smart, and explore the world (in scientific way, not like an adventurer). He turned out to be a capable person, with great potential, he quickly rose in ranks, and earned for himself a high position in Citadel. He was one of the best, so eventually he was chosen to become personal doctor for royal family. That's how he joined Targaryen court, and met young Rhaegar. The two of them together, and maester Aemon, in private library of Targaryens discovered works of Daenys the Dreamer, and personal records of Shiera Seastar, from which they found out about the Prophecy. So Rhaegar started to think, that he is the promised Prince, and Marwyn gradually became interested in studying magic. Then happened what happened, Rhaegar died, Marwyn became disheartened, and went to Asshai, either to find Shiera Seastar, or to find out more information about Second Long Night, and possible identity of new Azor Ahai. In Asshai he did found Shiera Seastar, at that time she was using new aliase - Quaithe. She became Marwyn's teacher, and among other things, taught him how to use glass candles. Obviously, that now Marwyn isn't interested in being just a maester, he's more interested in magic, and the Prophecy, but he wasn't like this before.

    Where? That is not a source. It does not provide statistical evidence, or even anecdotal evidence, for the claim of 'thousands' of instances of traffickers posing as relatives being apprehended at the border under Obama. It was very clear that you meant is as an objection to reunifying children with their parents. In that capacity, it absolutely does appear to be bogus, given your later remarks. If it wasn't meant as such, that doesn't change the fact that it is. I don't even know where to start with this. What makes you think this isn't already the case?

    First, it's not clear the ask is for 3+ films, is it? Second, even if they are doing another trilogy or some such, I'd be worried about their long-term commitment. It clearly waned with GoT. And I'm not even one of their haters, but reading between the lines it was apparent in interviews they wanted to expedite the finish to a show that made their careers.

    Oh, I read your post, and the condescension will only keep growing because, from your own link: That's literally all you got. And they posed as relatives to gain custody. This is entirely different from the desperate situations those of all ages are desperately running from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. You plainly don't get what the situation actually entails on the border, which is why I will continue to be as patronizing as possible. First, refugees commonly don't have means to "confirm" their identity - that's why they're refugees in the first place. Second, the processes that are undertaken once asking for asylum is arduous to begin with. Separating these people from their children is an iniquity that's reminiscent of the Nazis (or, ya know, America whenever it's feeling virulently anti-immigrant), and I think that's a comparison the rest of the board will tell you I don't take lightly.

    Hard to tell if this is incompetence or purposely fucked up. I am leaning toward the latter. Trump Administration Still Has No Plan for Reuniting the Families It Separated http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/06/trump-admin-has-no-plan-for-reuniting-families-it-separated.html

    70+ hours of a TV show is a bigger ask than 3+ films unless they wind up making a lot of films. I'd be more concerned with how they fare as sole writers of the story but maybe the more action packed focus of the post book seasons of GOT would suit a star wars movie well?

    I agree, it should be removed. I think adding such a section should have been discussed before doing it anyway.

    Cashman is a wizard so you could be right. They're also making Drury put in the work at first so imagine that is to up his trade value/provide insurance for Bird. I'm curious to see if German in on an innings limit and how he continues to develop and how some of the other arms in the minors to.

    It's the people seeking asylum who are having their children stolen. WTF do you think zero tolerance means?

    Thanks I’m bouncing.
  15. Sampaoli has been much worse than I anticipated, but it was always very poor timing to bring in a project manager who likes a specific brand of football in the immediate run up to the World Cup. Especially when South American international football operates on a four year cycle, unlike the European two.

    I recently made a Youtube channel, and my first video is a theory explaining the magic behind the fireballs of the children of the forest: However, I think my best theory yet, is The Truth Behind the Drowned God, a comprehensive theory on the Deep Ones, the Mazemakers, the black oily stone... and how they tie in with the children of the forest.

    Breastfeeding an infant is no longer an acceptable disguise for a human trafficker no more. So impressive that Orange Asshole figuered that out. The black market for nursing infants from Guatemala must be YUGE! But Orange Asshole knows and only he can fix it. (He told us so)

    It's not bogus, I mentioned it as another issue that is worth considering. It wasn't meant as a justification of separating children, because I disagree with that. Sorry if that wasn't clear. And to further clarify, I think requiring substantial evidence that confirms the identity of asylum seekers and the dangers they are fleeing from, would greatly limit child trafficking.

    TTTNE 473: I hope Josh posts in this thread!

    Yep ,I do cause my mother is German (from Bonn) I've spent some summers there . So far it's been great and I'm lucky to have a job I enjoy in a field that interests me but from people I know a lot don't really work in the field of their major . So your turn , how do you serve the devil ? Air shows can be fun . I have a friend who's obsessed with them and travels just to see them . Get a good caterer, people deserve good food if they're gonna suffer shitty relatives Well if we're talking conceptually , marriage should be encouraged since statistics show that children of married people far outperform their counterparts across the board and are henceforth better for society . The nuclear family remains ,in my opinion at least, the best and most stable unit to build communities around. On an interpersonal level, because I believe it's such a serious commitment and a meaningful part of one's life , I definitely don't think people should feel like they HAVE to do it . They should want and accept it willingly while knowing the responsibilities and hardships it involves.
  25. Do you know how ridiculous that sounds? The contortions in logic made to defend booster packs and criticise loot boxes is amazing. You can always print more if there is demand. You are also more likely to run out of money and/or complete whatever you want before they run out of stock. Also, if you are wealthy enough to do that, you should be able to afford the expenditure anyway.

    Yeah, sorry, I mixed up the quotes. That was meant for @TheKitttenGuard Here's one source: https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/leader-human-trafficking-organization-sentenced-over-15-years-exploiting-guatemalan-migrants The condescension just keeps growing. If you read my post, I wasn't talking about people who show up at the border seeking asylum.
