@  Shrug : (20 October 2018 - 05:28 AM)

Russian interference should have been fighting an uphill battle, but as far as I'm concerned we gave them a head start.

@  Shrug : (20 October 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I disagree with Hillary being a good choice to run against Trump. Plenty of mixed feelings about her long before 2016 within our own party. When the DNC has to rig it's own primaries to get their chosen candidate running, maybe you shouldn't expect an easy landslide at the actual election.

@  Pennpenn : (20 October 2018 - 05:20 AM)

It would have also helped if the US was also an actualy democracy where the candidate who gets the most votes wins, but hey.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:42 AM)

You helped destroy western democracy, but hey, at least no-one can accuse you of bias... Oh wait, they did, still do, and are going to keep doing so as long as you report facts.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:39 AM)

Hillary was a good choice to run against Trump, the big problem was the media crawling all over themselves to try and push the idea of fairness, and threw her under the bus to do so. Any hint of impropriety was treated as being exactly the same as actual proven criminal acts by Trump in order to avoid being seen as biased... and at the end of it all, he turned around and bit them for doing so because that's who he is.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:37 AM)

Many right-wingers are using its name as part of our version of the term "libtards": "Left-green filthy".

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:35 AM)

It's the only of the "established" parties (it's almost 40 years old at this point) that has remained true to its principles.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:34 AM)

Meanwhile, some uplifting news from Germany: While our big parties are rapidly losing voters, and our new "we're not really extreme" right-wing party is gaining voters, there is one other party that is scoring massive points, both in polls and the recent Bavarian state election: The Green Party.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:33 AM)

I still think having Hillary run against Drumpf was a bad choice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 October 2018 - 03:32 AM)

Well on the bright side, we know more people voted for HIllary than the cheeto.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:31 AM)

I guess many a prepper might have also voted for the person most likely to bring about the end of society they are waiting for.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:28 AM)

Now let that sink in, and then think about how many people voted for Agent Orange.

@  D.M : (19 October 2018 - 09:09 AM)

+They don't really give a crap about God. All their religious talk is just part of the mask. They wanna look like the ideal citizen (what they consider that to be) - the most Christian of all Christians, the most patriotic of all patriots, etc.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 08:13 AM)

That's because she was also greedy, heartless, and despised the poor, which is something the right often loves more than God.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 October 2018 - 07:55 AM)

I find it rather amusing that the party of the Religious Right sees wisdom in a woman who hated the notion of God almost as much as she hated and feared the idea of being part of a family.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:39 AM)

However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

I mean, white people are calling the cops on black people for random shit lately, it appears.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2018 - 02:49 AM)

It's not that surprising that some people freaked out enough over Youtube being down that they'd call emergency services. I mean, I've heard of at least one instance of someone calling 911 because the restaurant didn't make a cheeseburger to their liking.

I'm thinking Cherrilee found out and threatened Sugar Belle to either leave her man alone or she's getting shanked in the schoolyard.

Either that or Big Mac just happened to hear the wrong part of an out of context conversation and hijinx ensues until everything's straightened out at the end.

I'm leaning more towards the shanking theory.

It would be an interesting twist if it wasn't a misunderstanding and she does want to break up. Their relationship wasn't started on the best of conditions afterall. It would make for a good lead in episode to talk about how to deal break up and hearbreak.

All I'm going to say, is she makes one face that alone I'll let the episode pass for.

I didn't watch all of this when it 'leaked' but I do know the gist of it.

There is one 'thing' in it though that I'm sure is going to 'make it less great' to one or two people.

Skeleanor (or maybe Skellinor, but it's Eleanor with a Skeleton gag), to correct myself.

 

Also, I must've been looking at the Discord (ETA: the chat, not the character) at the 11:54 mark, I had to go back and rewatch to catch LyraBon exchanging gifts as part of a "Mac tormented by the existence of happy couples" mini-montage.  I'd screenshot it, but my DVR covers up way too much content when paused.

So, they went with out of context conversation. Too bad. I was really hoping for a good shanking.

There were quite a few good spots though. Sweetie Belle hoping for a love interest was an interesting 'they grow up so quickly' moment. Poor thing! LyraBon was as cute as ever. The amount of heartache they show in this was really painfully real-world type crap. I'm honestly surprised the went that real. I honestly wasn't expecting Discord, but he was actually interesting here.

Still waiting for Sugar Belle to get shanked.

I was hoping Sweetie Bell's subplot would take a page from the last episode of K-On.

(Ricchan finds a heartfelt love poem in her locker, and tries to turn to the rest of the band for advice, but they all have other things to do. Ricchan spends the episode low-key tormenting herself over exactly what her admirer finds attractive, realizing that she doesn't see anything attractive about herself, and wondering if she's even worthy of being loved. At the end of the ep, all her friends finally get together, and Mio randomly asks her if she's had time to look over the lyrics Mio left her.
". . . LYRICS?!?"
Cue Ricchan beating the jive out of Mio as her friends try to hold her back.)

Mainly 'cause it would've been funny to see tiny, angry Sweetie Bell exploding at Big Mac.

I do hope that they revisit Sweetie Belles subplot at some point. Not that I want her to become some lovesick always looking for love type character. But more of a CMC's are growing up more and more and now they're at that age where boys don't have cooties and...oh dear what is big sister going to say when little sister starts noticing boys and...yeah...

I mean, they got their cutie-marks now. So the writers seem to have gotten to a place of "well now what do we do with them." I think this would be the perfect thing to do. They're growing up...big sister (especially Applejack) may not be prepared for it. Not like "Forever Filly" or "Somepony to Watch Over Me." Like...make it less cringy, more believable, more like how real life family would react. They've actually been doing a pretty decent job of that lately.
