  2. Ugly game, Rhom, you didn’t miss much. Everything was soaked, nobody could get anything going, lotsa crab-walking and I think Washington barely cracked double digits on pass attempts, the ball was so hard to throw/catch/hold. Good that we squeezed it out, almost too cliched trap game.

    Have they done anything about the supermarket that was burned?

    US politics - When the Barr's so low.

    No, I'm not going to make such a wide claim. It's impossible to parse if the people attacking Palin's intelligence in particular were acting on gender bias precisely because she actually said stupid things and on camera! The HRC and Palin case comparison still don't fit the same mold very easy. Unless you are simply claiming that every woman who enters the upper levels of politics will face some kind of sexist blow-back. In addition to the difference in intelligence, HRC is a pretty unique case. She was subjected to decades of the right wing attack machine. They hated her for not acting like a demure First Lady. They hated her because Bill Clinton kept winning elections in a time Democrats were supposed to be losing. All the stuff about HRC being a corrupt elite really came in later years, especially around the 2016 election. She had already been called a femi-Nazi by the right wing for decades by then.

    What shouldn't be done...about climate change

    Do you understan how protesting works?. If you disrupt public transport, you generate a lot of pressure. Its by no means insignificant and it can cause some serious problems to the goverment. You second "point", makes no fucking sense.

    Why couldn't Robb send a team to retrieve Sansa?

    To do it right, so it could be successful, it would have required a lot of effort and in the end, she just wasn't that important to him. You can see that with his reaction to her being married to Tyrion, not once did he express concern for her well-being as a person. Maybe if he had the idea to marry her of to Willas earlier, but if I didn't see a political gain in getting her back, he wouldn't have done it.

    Boarders Writing a Novel Part 15

    @HelenaExMachina Thanks! I’m mostly looking for feedback on how enjoyable the sequel is, how it compares with Resurrection Men. Not too worried about spelling/grammar etc as the editor and proof-reader should catch anything I miss. My main concern is, is the book good? Does it measure up to Resurrection Men? I hope to have draft 2 done by the end of this week or the next.

    Im talking about chile.
  10. Jesus how quickly did you jump on that? I swear I edited it out like five seconds after I posted it because I knew I was going to be misunderstood. Like, you saw I wrote some parallels, right? Are you really gonna sit there and tell me there was nothing misogynistic in the way people went after Palin's intelligence, her looks, her family, etc. in comparison with the treatment other Republicans of near identical policy stances and character have gotten?
  11. Today
  12. More than happy to see what they can do next and the setting of the 30 years war is icing on the cake as I don't think I've ever seen it covered in TV

    What now?

    Yeah, that's why I want to know what the hell happened in Maekar's reign and the Conquest, the Robellion and the Black Dragon, what did Egg to eran such animosity when he was Prince, what happened in Summerhall, i want to know what happened when the dragons died and we have little to no info about that, i want it more than AdoS and WoW.

    I firmly believe that unless he starts playing the creative midfielders more often, City will beat us to the title again.Need more goals and guile from our midfield.

    What shouldn't be done...about climate change

    Then what they're doing is even more futile than I thought. In New York, this group disrupted traffic on Broadway near the Charging Bull. It makes sense as a means of bringing attention to something, but in terms of disrupting the economy, both this and the incident with public transport is like a mosquito on the body of an elephant except several orders of magnitude smaller. Do people who have power in the UK use public transport? Around here, even mayors get motorcades.

    What now?

    F&B is just "The Reign of the Dragons" and "The Targaryen Kings", from "The World of Ice & Fire". In a longer form. There is little new to learn.

    Small unworthy things - as you were

    Thanks for your feedback everyone. I was looking for other interpretations... I did not initially feel threatened by the note, but when I *described* it to some people, they told me it was "seriously creepy" and to "watch my back"... That spooked me, so I came looking for other opinions. I've had very limited contact with the guy. He has so far struck me as mild mannered and easygoing. He sits on his porch a lot listening to a radio, even sports -- he seems like a little bit of a different breed. I think he might be attracted to me lol. I believe he mentioned him seeing me coming and going the day before to help me identify him, because I should have seen him too. But, as I said, when I got the spooky initial feedback from others, I doubted my perception (I also have been too trusting, at least in the past, something I'm aware of so...) It seems other people read the letter as being more socially awkward and less alarming as I did upon my first read. That's comforting lol, but I am going to be a bit cautious with the guy until I figure him out better. Anyway, thanks again for your input!

    It's safe to say that Liverpool needed Mo Salah today.
  20. It's really too bad that HBO's new management (after being bought up) didn't come in years earlier. After all they are the ones who gave D&D the actual boot and said 'not thank you guys, never again with you for anything'. Imagine what they could have done and how it might have made the show better for everyone. Lets face it, there are plenty who think Sansa only became QitN because D&D had just turned the only two female rulers into Mad Queens and probably thought it would smooth things over. Except even her becoming Queen is completely misogynistic. She only gets to become Queen when all of her male relatives are either dead, higher up or exiled.

    Rugby: Building up to Japan

    I thought Wales got very lucky there, France really threw the game away with the red card and even after that Wales still seem to be struggling to really take advantage of the extra man. It's a pity Japan couldn't make their quarter final competitive, but they should be very proud of their tournament despite that.

    Best result we could have possibly hoped for. Doesn't really help our predicament though. Liverpool dominating possession helped us and obviously the players themselves would have been motivated because it's Liverpool but the underlying issue is still a very concerning one - we look utterly clueless with the ball unless we've been afforded the space to counter attack.

    Oh well, we've been threatening to drop points for a while. Hopefully Klopp starts to use the creative midfielders more in future.

    Rugby: Building up to Japan

    Personally, I don't agree with a quota at club and international level. That's why I stated in my original post that I agree with Kolisi's view on the matter. The focus should be on increasing and developing the pool of players of colour at youth level by directing resources to ensure that these players have equal opportunity in accessing the training and facilities that their white counterparts do. However, going that route would have only borne fruit in the long term and the South African government wanted more immediate results.

    Well that was shit. Liverpool were rubbish and didn’t deserve the win but getting screwed over by VAR was annoying.
  27. Well hell... I’m in Evanston, Illinois (outside Chicago) for the week and there’s a Chili’s across the street from the hotel. Figured they’d have all the games... Nope only local channels. And the host wasn’t sure what nearby place might have them. No Skins v Niners for me.
