Re: Browns give up, pay 16 million for Super Bowl Ring: NFL '17

It makes sense only to the extent that it takes an insane amount of money to get someone out of the broadcast booth, which has orders of magnitude less stress and time comitment. Which would bother me about hiring a coach who only will get back into football by being paid a mountain of money. As an...

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

If you were putting anime on a spectrum, Devilman Crybaby is like out there so far you need binoculars to see it from Berserk. I'm not watching that show, even if other people say it's good. What spectrum is this and which direction on it is Devilman Crybaby? Saw a couple episodes. It hasn't quite ...

Re: Video Games!

About to need a new RPG or possibly strategy though not RTS game. Ideaz? I've been playing Darkest Dungeon. It's basically a turn based dungeon crawler with some interesting mechanics. It has a very Cthulhu-vibe to the whole thing. The art gives it kind of a Hellboy feel to it as well. You send in ...

Re: Spearfishing With Luke: The Last Jedi thread with spoilers!

Thoughts in no particular order. Too many characters - I guess they're trying the MCU thing (understandable being Disney also) but it isn't working. This is a middle chapter. Why did they feel the need to introduce several new characters with so much dialogue? This made the narrative completely scat...

Am I the only one who thinks the Gruden/Raiders deal is kind of insane? Yeah he won a Superbowl but otherwise his teams were kind of middling for much of his career. That's an awful lot of money.

Re: When journalism goes bad

Re: When journalism goes bad

It feels like the racist veneer description is a bit too simple. By analogy the left just wants free stuff paid for by people they don’t like and left elites want the power to decide who gets what. There is some truth there but I’m not going to say that’s all there is. I think conservatives worried...

Re: Orange is the new President

I think 'white middle class' includes going to church (not mosque or temple), eating American food (not curry and shit) and speaking exclusively unaccented (unless the accent is a local accent) English. Exactly. "Weird" looking people aren't that big a deal for most part if they have similar custom...

The thing about the Aziz Ansari bit is that it's perfect toxoplasma of rage . It's right on the margin where people have a bunch of different reactions, so we're talking and arguing about this.

What I find annoying about some of these chiding editorials is that all solutions have to be enacted by the guy. There is never anything expected on the woman's side of things. I get that guys shouldn't be as grabby or insistent about sex but then maybe the woman should avoid things that can lead th...

Re: What are you reading?

Occasionally they have really good deals like this as well.

That's six books (66 hour length) for not much money. That's also a series I would recommend if anyone is looking for a good fantasy series. Excellent narration.

I'm new to audible. Or wife is more precisely. I was confused to learn that they are both a subscription and a purchase model.

I'm not nearly as generous, because how do people come to those supposedly rational, non-racist beliefs? Do we take them at their word that racism had nothing at all to do with it, that what they're saying isn't a post-hoc rationalization so that they can tell themselves that they're not racist, wh...

The deniability is a bit more complex than that, though. There are some people, mostly elites, who actually believe more immigration is bad for (mostly) non-racist reasons. And there are a lot of people who believe immigration is bad for more-or-less racist and/or xenophobic reasons. And for the mo...

Re: The Techno-Bleg Thread

So you're on a Mac? Unfortunately I can't help you with that all that much. Like you mentioned there is some kind of developer settings that you can enable. I had to do that all the time when I was using various test builds on Apple hardware. Not sure why what you did wouldn't work though.
