  1. What stupid thing did the GOP say or do this time? Episode 3!

    I'm not sure Biden is as talented as you think. But the reason Biden didn't do that is because he just isn't the very rare sort of person who would. It's just really weird. We keep talking about Trump winning and getting all of his cases dismissed, but I'm not really clear on whether after...

    Anyway, we wouldn't need it if Canada and Mexico would stop lobbing missiles at us all the time.
  3. A Long Time Ago In a Galaxy Far, Far Away.... - Star Wars General Discussion

    Nope. And I suspect it will turn out that Osha was made for the Dark Side. They might both swap, but I think it is more likely Qimir can turn Osha than Sol turning Mae.

    I don't know what that means. The name was coined in Episode 1. Qui-Gon says he has discovered a Vergence in the Force and someone clarifies that he means one centered on a person. The cave on Dagobah was made into one retroactively. Not clear whether the witches found a Vergence on Brendok...

    Could Qimir be nobody. Possessed by Koril?
  6. A Long Time Ago In a Galaxy Far, Far Away.... - Star Wars General Discussion

    I watched the episode this morning. I felt like it was not as hard on Sol as one of the recaps that I read. The recap said he initially tried to save both girls and then decided to just save Osha and that sounded like he decided he didn't care about Mae. But what happens on the episode is...

    Okay. I was really thinking we should stay the course, but if George Clooney says...

    They've done a lot of nice head fakes in this show. Remember when we were all like "Carrie Ann Moss' part was so small, but she made the most of it" and Kelnacca died off-screen and the producer came out and said, "Yeah, we would have liked to do a fight scene, but it just didn't work with how...
  9. Biden-Harris / Dems

    Obama could make a speech (don't know if he wrote any), write a book (I think he wrote them), win a debate, and get elected. It is difficult to get a look under the hood because the White House organization is always designed to look as much as possible like the President is running the show...
  10. Biden-Harris / Dems

    There are a lot of ways to be President as long as you know which way you are doing it and know where to get the pieces you are missing. I know really very little about President Eisenhower, but what he needed to accomplish in the White House was VERY different from what he needed to accomplish...

    I read a couple recaps. I couldn't resist. After last week, I thought finding out more about Qimir would be the rest of the series, but they spent half of the rest of the series without him and now I wonder if we'll even find out any more about him. Interestingly, the show made us really...

    I forgot to watch last night! Too late this morning.
  13. Biden-Harris / Dems

    She didn't impress me in the VP debate 4 years ago. But... I mean...Trump has never impressed anyone without a red hat on in any debate. *shrugs.

    I think it is a stretch to make that dichotomy. For one thing, that is a REALLY long scar along vital territory to be a lightsaber and survive it. If that whip smacked into him, it would have cut him in half. But further, the scar isn't just curved. It branches. If it is more than just how...

    Well, what I was getting at was I don't really have a feel for how many of the people who voted for Reagan in 1980 loved one of his movies. Was he Matt LeBlanc or Peter Stamore?
  16. Biden-Harris / Dems

    Do you really get to change the definition just to keep the word in play? It could be that TV actors are the modern parallel. There are a lot of TV actors that are pretty well known, but never break into movies. There have been a number of Presidents that ran on little more than being a...
  17. A Long Time Ago In a Galaxy Far, Far Away.... - Star Wars General Discussion

    In one episode he asked Sol, "You don't remember me?". I can't remember if he was still wearing his mask. It is possible he meant from the drugstore the other day, but it felt at the time that he meant other history. Then in the next episode we find out he was a padawan. It is hard to get an...

    Qimir is very interesting to me. They are clearly building sympathy for him. He may turn back.
  19. Biden-Harris / Dems

    I am unclear how many people knew Ronald Reagan the actor. I have heard he was in B-movies, but I'm really not sure how much exposure that is. We don't have B-movies now.
  20. The US Supreme Court and its decisions

    I read a book a few years ago about Heller and how we got there and it was enlightening. At the end of the book, I expected the author to be very angry and he was surprisingly zen in his conclusion. Aside from that it was NOT originalist at all and the people deciding it act like they were...
