  1. Are you paying for it? Or is that part of the complexity?
  2. Thought this was a Chronicles of Riddick thread at first. You keep what you kill. But anybody who looks at these pics just cannot be a vegetarian. Life's too short for that shit. And yeah, I get it.
  3. Houston deserves a better team than this, and by that I mean owner and coach/gm. BoB is a fucking clown.
  4. I didn't specify tonight, but you do you. So for those who have enough snap to realize that we can't go out for now, is/was the place worth it?
  5. The mexican place in Austin? Worth it?
  6. Thanks for the Tri-Eagle comments. They look pretty good. I know someone who uses energy ogre. They have really bad reviews.
  7. SOME old people have wisdom. Not all. Far too many are clowns. If you're gonna impose an age limit (upper end) on POTUS then apply it to voters as well.
  8. Here's your answer: it's actually justice. Just because it also makes you feel better doesn't mean it's not justice.
  9. Seems like a humble brag thread.
  10. Yep. Inside job all the way.
  11. Didn't see where this was posted (and searched for it), so, oh well. Chuck Schumer came out and said that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch would "pay" if they upheld a recent anti-abortion case that's going to SCOTUS, which prompted a response from Roberts. While I'm not really a fan of Schumer (or of Roberts), I thought that Schumer (or his staff) played this brilliantly from a political perspective. Here iit is in case you haven't seen it: WASHINGTON — Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., who only very rarely responds to criticism of federal judges, issued a statement on Wednesday denouncing remarks made by Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, at a rally outside the Supreme Court. Mr. Schumer, speaking while the court heard arguments in a major abortion case, attacked President Trump’s two Supreme Court appointees, Justices Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh. “You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Mr. Schumer said. “You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” Chief Justice Roberts condemned Mr. Schumer’s remarks. “Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous,” he said in a statement. “All members of the court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.” Here's the brilliant part: A spokesman for Mr. Schumer said the chief justice had engaged in a willful misrepresentation. “Senator Schumer’s comments were a reference to the political price Senate Republicans will pay for putting these justices on the court, and a warning that the justices will unleash a major grass-roots movement on the issue of reproductive rights,” the spokesman, Justin Goodman, said in a statement. “For Justice Roberts to follow the right wing’s deliberate misinterpretation of what Senator Schumer said, while remaining silent when President Trump attacked Justices Sotomayor and Ginsburg last week, shows Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes,” he said. That was a reference to a famous analogy proposed by Chief Justice Roberts at his confirmation hearings, comparing judges with umpires. Last week, the chief justice declined to comment when the president called on Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, two liberal members of the court, to recuse themselves from all cases involving Mr. Trump. Mr. Schumer’s remarks suggested that Democrats see a political advantage in criticizing the court, which they expect to issue consistently conservative decisions after the departure in 2018 of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Chief Justice Roberts, for his part, insists that the court is not a political body. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/04/us/roberts-schumer-supreme-court.html?searchResultPosition=1
  12. The single biggest thing to learn about "finance" is to invest in a broad-based index fund. Vanguard Admiral, for example. Put money in at regular intervals and forget about it. You can't time the market. Your dumb ass neighbor/friend doesn't have any good stock tips.
  13. Holy shit. That is fucked up beyond all constitutional recognition. I hope you're kidding.
  14. Lol. What? How about this for "analysis"? "Alex Jones saying sources he has telling him 10% (30 mil) in US dead in 6 months. Even if this crazy fucker is 99% wrong, that's still 330k dead." Or hey, let's change the number to 100% dead in 6 months....
