Warren, give us your testimony from first hand empirical experience or STFU.
You STFU. I'm talking about what I know. I have plenty of first hand experience. What is this need you have to be a dick?

Re: Solar Eclipse/End of the World 2017

Cause that's what the sun visor is for. :) Below a certain angle, the visor doesn't help. I once lived 20 miles due west of where I worked. At certain times of the year, I was looking straight at the sun, morning and evening. And yet you're not blind. How can this be? I believe it's partly because ...

Re: Solar Eclipse/End of the World 2017

I've stared directly at the sun through gas station sunglasses dozens of times.

Re: Orange is the new President

I am coming to the conclusion that not only did DJT never actually want to be president, but that he hates being president so much he's deliberately trying to get himself fired.

Re: Solar Eclipse/End of the World 2017

The NASA and other astronomical websites ALL agree that looking directly at the sun any time other than totality is a bad idea. Because if anyone ever said "You can look directly at the sun for a few seconds no problem" and some idiot stared at it long enough to burn a floaty they'd be liable. I th...

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

Does it get better after the first episode (which on my DVR was two episodes run together in a 2 hr block)? It didn't get off to good start right off the bat - the opening was a bit cheap, in that I think they were trying to do some misdirection with "people come across bearded guy in wilderness ca...

Everyone's freaking out about looking at an eclipse for 3 seconds but no one sheds a tear about my eyes being seared by the setting sun every time I have to drive toward the west (which is somehow ALWAYS late afternoon?)

Manhunt: Unabomber I'm enjoying it. I was skeptical about making the profiler the 'one guy who knows what he's talking about if only the dbags in charge would listen to him' (aka The Goldbum). But the forensic linguistics as depicted is pretty solid. The show jumps around in time. I like the parts a...

Re: A Game of ... THEY KILLED WHO?!?!? (hbo spoilers)

Then why did she stop in the Riverlands and then head for Cersei? Why would the Terminator Waif act all conflicted at the Inn of the Crossroads, considering Jon is her target? She thought the Boltons still held Winterfell. It's a cool idea, but the show doesn't have the balls to do something like t...

Re: A Game of ... THEY KILLED WHO?!?!? (hbo spoilers)

I'm buying "The Waif killed Arya" theory. If we suppose the faceless men and their many faced god (who is called death?) have an agenda regarding the coming war with the dead: Arya is the vehicle to King Jon and the army of men. Why Jaqen H'ghar allowed himself to be captured. Why Arya is able to sh...

The thing where when you click a link to a new post and the page loads in such a way that the post you're looking for is somewhere else is increasingly annoying.

Re: Orange is the new President

The amount of "but antifa!" going around is a little shocking to me. I guess I still thought that, when you have a death in an attempted mass murder, all but the most loyal partisans would take a breath and say, "Shit, that's awful. This is plain bad." And that's ignoring the context of a rally by ...

Re: Private Money!

I'm not saying this is what's happening, but do note that it is 100% possible and actually quite easy to make an email tell you it came from any old address. Most scam emails at this point have "from" fields that point to legitimate websites. (And "reply-to" fields that do not). The "from" and "rep...
