Re: Music for the Masses

I've always liked their sound but have always been up and down with most of their stuff. However, this new album I think they really nailed it. I dig almost all the songs on it. This one in particular. Also I only found out a few months ago the singer is a dude. Kind of obvious in retrospect I guess...

Re: Kulturkampf? In my NFL? It's more likely than you think. Football 2018

Kirk Cousins is so anti-clutch that if you allowed clutch to come in contact with him, it would cause an explosion that would crack the Earth's crust. I read a really good article breaking him down a couple weeks ago. Basically the guy's a robot. On planned throws his timing and mechanics are perfe...

Re: Inequality

The thing about relocation is that it comes at considerable expense. You do it if the numbers work out but it's absurd to do it without an offer in hand. The idea that you should relocate to look for work is straight up go fuck yourself. I did and it's worked out well for me. You have to make some ...

Re: Inequality

Glassdoor is self reported from my understanding so I don't know how much influence companies would have on that. I'm sure there are specialty positions that make it tricky to get good samples of that position's salary, but I wouldn't think a barista is one of them.

Re: I wanna see that!!!!

Weird thing about origin stories: for years, the most well-known superhero TV show, the 1966 Batman series, didn't really bother with any origin for Batman or Robin. "These guys fight weird crime in funny costumes. Go!" The closest was one episode where Bruce Wayne says he's set up a crime victim a...

Well clearly the owner's think they do care. As you just noted they don't always care a lot about of other issues. If an owner thought they wouldn't get significant heat for it I'm sure they would grab him up in a minute. That's literally why people think it's a conspiracy. People who think it's a ...

Fans do not care. There is zero evidence that fans care more about this than domestic abuse, dog fighting or being an accessory to a double murder. Well clearly the owner's think they do care.

I also wonder if superhero fatigue is going to finally start setting in at some point. I've never understood that idea, at least in terms of viewer fatigue. In a big year, there are 3-4 major superhero movies. Meanwhile, there are metric fucktons of movies from a slew of other genres and sub-genres...

There is no greater evidence of anti-Kaepernick collusion than going with Mark Sanchez over Kaep when signing an emergency QB. I don't really understand the collusion angle. Owner's don't want him because they see him as distraction they don't want to deal with, whatever his talents. How is that co...

The trick with this one is there isn't decades worth of stories to mine from in the same way as many of the other heroes. She might as well be a brand new character.

On the other hand, if anyone can actually make Carol Danvers sympathetic and heroic, it'd...

You would think that being gamers my roommates would be better at dishwasher Tetris. It's like they had a garbage can full of dishes and just dumped them in the dish washer, closed the door, and let her rip. Unsurprisingly there ends up being dishes not fully cleaned.
