Re: Petty annoyances

The Fuggers and the Medicis tried the same thing. So did the Knights Templar before them. Eventually, you become the richest target around and all the looters gang up to grab what you've got. I'd say there's a good chance that the Iron Bank is going down next season. Where its physical location is ...

Re: Petty annoyances

I have never watched any episode of Game of Thrones, but I've looked at a lot of video clips. One thing that bugs me is the 'Iron Bank of Braavos', who are somehow invincibly secure in their wealth. Yes, they can hire mercenaries to cut down those who don't pay, but that doesn't get your money back....

Re: Gentry from the block

What is the thinking here anyway? I thought the horrors of gentrification was that people would be forced out of their homes that they've lived in for years. But these are new units so...? The problem is rich people will be able to get to their car without having to trip over a few working poor and...

Okay. So I'm going back and forth a lot between our current/old apartment and the new place, which we're painting and stuff before we move in. It's on my same street and about nine blocks from here. There are a few different ways to drive. There are two two-way arterial roads you can take the whole...

Re: Orange is the new President

Even if Cruz and Bush pandered to the same kind of elements that love Trump in the general election, they're politicians. They wouldn't actually follow through on their rhetoric. Just as they wouldn't really get into a trade war with China, or threaten to end NAFTA or leave NATO or any of that. The...

Re: There's a Word for That

I believe there is a word for a real person portrayed in fiction, but given another name. eg: The story has a 'fictional' person who unmistakably is Barbara Streisand or Donald Trump, but they are given another name.
