    UK Politics: The Edge of Destruction

    And it completely disenfranchises anyone who votes for a smaller party. Again, why not just use instant run off? It's simple, people just rank their choice in order. And it stops the need for tactical voting. Ie, you could vote for a smaller remain party confident that even if they don't get a seat your vote will still count, and go towards someone who isnt ukip2.0.

    Thoughts on Bran’s character development

    Bran wargs in Hodor the first time in the farmer's tower when attacked by the wildling group with Ygritte and Jon. Hodor was lamenting the loud thunder and threatened to give them away, Bran succeeds to warg into Hodor and shut him up. Jojen comments after the thunder that no one can do that or at least it es very rare. Bran wargs into Hodor the second time at the lake by the raven's weirwood treen, when the wights break through the ice and kill Jojen. Bran wargs into Hodor and uses Hodor to save himself (Bran). The third time Bran wargs into Hodor for the "hold the door" exit scene. This time is special, because three things come together: Bran uses greensight into a past scene including Hodor, Ban wargs into Hodor in present time and Hodor is dying in present time. This constellation creates a timetravel paradoxon of the young Hodor somehow being influenced by his own death, turning the young, vivacious boy into a mentally retarded one.

    Remorseful Jaime, Unrepentant Dany

    Yeah I agree about Jamie, his character has changed so much and I’m glad he walked away from his sister, he’s one of the characters I most want to survive. I feel kind of conflicted about Dany because I want her house to be back on the throne but I’m not liking her that much at the moment, she’s nowhere near as awesome as her ancestors like Visenya, Baela or Daena.

    I never got into the whole emo thing tbh, I do love both those bands though, a couple of my friends sarcastically call me little miss sunshine for my music taste . Now I just want to see Angel and Spike battling the night king complete with dragons , maybe hold the dragons, they don’t like fire much either, undead celebrity death match!.

    No, the stats I’m quoting are attempts to consolidate value. For example Win Shares can be broken down into Offensive and Defensive Win Shares. So Giannis’ overall Win Shares of 14.4 is comprised of 8.9 Offensive Win Shares and 5.5 Defensive Win Shares, whereas Harden’s 15.2 Win Shares are broken down 11.4 and 3.8, respectively. Similarly with the other stats, they are all attempts to measure overall impact. Interestingly, players are actually pushing for more (not less) emphasis on the offensive with high usage because of how hard it makes defenders work, thereby lessening their energy on O, ie the old ‘play D by making them play at the other end’, or since we’re on MJ, what happened before Pippen.

    Theories about the LOOK Drogon gave Jon?

    It was scary so its likely foreshadowing. Also opening your eyes while kissing is a bad sign. he cant let go and enjoy the moment. It looks like he can't be trusted.

    Im a Pistons fan, we hate Jordan even more than Harden, but you are correct that Harden has anti-fans so to speak lol. Giannis is still more efficient than Harden with either FG % or EFG % isnt he? Anyways have no need with goalpost moving, im okay with anyone that thinks Harden is their MVP, I just feel Giannis is better.

  15. I assume all of the advanced stats you're talking about are offensive, yeah? You can't ignore half of their games. I understand that offense is (and rightfully should be) weighed heavier in the modern area of the NBA, but also, the disparity between the two is huge.

    See what I mean? People don’t like him. FWIW, Michael Jordan missed over 1000 FGA’s on 5 seasons, over 950 4 more seasons, was prevented by injury from a few more and on none of them was as efficient as Harden was this year (or any other...his career TS% was .569, which Harden was only below in his rookie year. Jordan’s highest TS%...by a significant margin...was .614. That’s the only year he beat Harden’s career TS% of .609. Edit: and Harden was within a Chris Paul injury from winning one last year. And even with that injury the Warriors required an 8ppg advantage from the refs (not according to me, according to the league’s own released statement on officiating review) to get it done. Now I suppose the goalposts will move to the other end.

    Jon is the only thing keeping her from tipping. That's why his parentage reveal and Sam's treason is so explosive.

  20. Hello!:) New on here, so not sure this is the right place to ask, but I have the slipcase ASOIAF books from Harper Voyager (the blue ones) which are all 1st prints and am wondering what they’re worth today? Have seen from earlier forum threads and from ebay listings what people are asking, but am wondering if that is realistic to expect? Appreciate any help I could get, thanks in advance!:) RobinFS

    MCUniverse: Cat Scratch Fever edition.

    Yea, in which they doubled down on their interpretation of the Accords. I’m not saying it’s impossible they had multiple parts to the Accords, but if they did the movie never mentioned them.

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    In a somewhat cynical marketing move, Ubisoft is giving away Assassin's Creed Unity in response to the Notre Dame fire: https://register.ubisoft.com/acu-notredame-giveaway/en-US Never played an Assassin's Creed game before and don't have the time to do it anyway, but I still had a defunct Ubisoft account from back when I tried out the Anno browser game a decade or so ago. So I grabbed it and... well.

    UK Politics: The Edge of Destruction

    There's nothing weird or fucked up about the d'Hondt system. You always need a rule how to distribute the seats and d'Hondt is as good as any. In the example above seat 5 is a tie between Brexit and Labour, BTW. I guess that would be rare in real life but there needs to be provision for that. The reason the distribution of seats doesn't represent the election result very well in the example is that the constituency is too small. There are other systems than d'Hondt, e.g. the largest remainder method. If the latter was used with the Hare quota, then you'd get Brexit two seats, Labour, Conservatives and Lib Dem one seat each. But whatever system you pick, when the number of seats is small somebody always gets screwed. ETA: The Webster / Sainte-Lague method, which is a modified d'Hondt system, would also result in Brexit two seats, Labour, Conservatives and LibDem one seat each.

    NBA 2019 - Now the Joy in My World is in Zion

    I would value having the Greek one on my roster over "Needs the ball every second" Harden any day. He seems more valuable to me so hes my MVP. I cant imagine a trio of Giannis, Westbrook and Durant not getting a ring. Yet Harden couldnt win one with those two. Harden has big stats, as do most ball hogs, doesnt mean they are always Valuable. Harden will never win a Championship. To me the thing is with ball dominant types is you have to factor in the lost opportunity of productivity and efficiency from the rest of the guys on the court who didnt get any touches because Harden needs the ball 40% of the game. Id take the Greek, Alan Iverson proved years ago that hero ball falls short when its playoff time. eta: Harden missed over 1000 FG's this season, thats alarming.

    Rant and Rave Thread

    I half expected Euron to capture them. There were rumours that that’s what was going to happen to the Greyjoys. personally hope that Dany and Jon don’t end up really ruling by the end of the series. That would be so predictable, but then again so was Rhaegar and Lyanna. I’d rather it be someone random. All hail King Hotpie!
