  1. Roubini says the dollar loses world reserve status over the next decade: https://news.google.com/articles/CBMiP2h0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmZ0LmNvbS9jb250ZW50L2UwM2QyNzdhLWU2OTctNDIyMC1hMGNhLTFmOGEzZGJlY2I3NdIBAA?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen

  3. Feed me beans and beer and I'll gift you an airborne toxic event.
  4. Both of the Ewert brothers crack me up. Fusion Ewert (Reese) refuses to smile and talks so Canadian that if he weren't actually Canadian, people would think he's making fun of the Canadian stereotype. He plays coy at being stoic. Hydra Ewert (Jake) is unapologetic in giving his ego free reign / tooting his own horn. He's brash and relishes boos from the crowd. I don't think Riptide guy is really much of an actor. I think his ego was definitely challenged by team MadCatter's criticisms on design theft. When the match ended and we could see both teams interacting for the post game interviews, there appeared to be legit bad blood between the teams. It was mentioned that the issue had been manifest in the pits for some time.
  5. Well, that was entertaining. Some good fights, a split decision and, for me, a surprise result.
  6. Watched a few episodes and, for me, it's getting too formulaic. I keep wondering why she doesn't just apply for a job with the FBI or something.

  9. Minotaur looked really good in their last match. Barring some glitch, I think they have a very good shot to make the final this season. Ribbot was amazing last season. I'm not sold that they still have the magic this season, but even so, they should handle Claw Viper, which is dumb (no damage weapon). Sawblaze v Lockjaw could be a fun fight. I expect Sawblaze to triumph. Huge v Blip could be a hilarious (and/or boring) cripple fight with neither bot being very successful in attacking the other. Fusion v Witch Doctor should be a snoozer. Witch Doctor should prevail easily. Double Tap v Doomba - What? Who are these bots? Riptide v Madcatter sounds like a fun fight. Both bots looked legit in their last fights.

  11. If you make something in your kitchen using flour, chances are good you are going to have flour contamination around your kitchen. If you aren't OCD about food prep, you might even touch your face without washing hands first. I really don't have a problem with imagining plausible scenarios where the old lady that cooked something with contaminated flour might have exposed herself to the contamination.
  12. I think markets weren't paying attention when Powell said (repeatedly) that they aren't seeing disinflation in several areas that they need to see it and that we are still just in the early stages of the disinflation effects the Fed wants to realize. Markets hoping the Fed rolls through the stop sign, but they are telling us the foot isn't coming off the brake until the car comes to a complete stop.

  17. Frank would likely have been open to the possibility, but not Bill. Bill was serious about his resource management, OpSec and hatred for mankind. Frankly, I'm surprised he let Joel know the code for the perimeter gate.

  19. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_old_man_lost_his_horse ~~~ It will be seen as a sign that inflation is cooling and that the Fed is closer to a pivot on QT. The market will place bets on that expectation. The Fed might comply. They also might not.
  20. Are the insect killing lasers computer controlled by Skynet?
  21. Bill and Frank were mentioned in the previous episodes. Tess told Joel to take Ellie to Bill and Frank. Ellie decyphered Frank's radio code.

  24. River Oaks Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is the new king of cringe.
  25. Fuck me that was a solid gut punch. While that story wasn't fleshed out in the game, the emotional impact is similar to what I felt when completing the game. Awesome work. I think the last TV show I saw that had a similarly awesome episode was Better Call Saul when Mike had to shoot the German engineer. After that, I can't remember anything right now that is on this level.
