It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

*walks out on stage* Umm, I don't know how to tell everyone this, but Conway Twitty's been dead for nearly 30 years, now. So...*dances awkwardly as distraction*

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2021 - 06:01 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

Well, I went and voted first thing this morning.

 

123806962_3874550832568545_2229476423850

 

That was the longest line that I have ever seen to vote. I don't think that, before today, I have spent more than 5 minutes total waiting in lines to vote. Today, it was about half an hour standing in the early morning sun. I am hoping against hope that we can get Jones back to the Senate again, but its only a small hope.

I was going to vote right as the polls opened (since my overnight job ends around that time) but the line was out the door and on the street.

 

I went back around 2pm and it was still out the door but it only took me about half an hour at that point.

 

It's heartening to see so many people voting.

Depends. Do you mean how long until we have the final counts, or how long until Trump runs out of ways to fight it? Because, if the latter, I expect we'll be in triple digits.

I just hope the electoral college doesn't overrule the popular vote like they did with Hillary.

 

But uhhh... if Trump wins the popular vote then I would like the electoral college to step in and pick Biden... I have no shame.

I mean according to reports that was the plan. If it looks like hes winning to just say he won and then try to sow doubt on any changes that come after.

 

Sure Trump is now saying that was never the plan, but I also remember there being a news story revolving around the trump campaign already having pre-run a victory ad in a limited fashion on FB to get around FBs new rules about running new campaign ads close to the election date. Basically they pre-ran a victory ad for just a few people so it wouldn't count as a /new/ ad which would then enable them to run it during the lockout phase. Soooo pretty sure that hes lying.

The Trump campaign just asked three counties in Pennsylvania for their election security plans (Where ballots are stored, etc). Pennsylvania has contacted the FBI.

 

Rove and the GOP did the same thing in 2004 in Ohio...and thousands of ballots went missing.

With only 16% reporting they have already determined Trump has won Kentucky.

How is that possible with only 16% reported?

Am I missing something here?

Only one I've seen declared is Indiana for Trump. But Fox is predicting Vermont going to Biden and the polls aren't even closed yet. I think Faux Noise is living in its own little bubble.

To be fair, it is Kentucky. Looking at the margins in the more blue parts of the state probably indicate Biden has no chance given how the rest of the state normally vote.

USPS has defied a court order to sweep facilities for ballots. 

 

Affects at least 15 states and possibly more than 300,000 votes.

How is that possible with only 16% reported?

Am I missing something here?

Given a random enough sample, you can get a pretty good grasp of how many people voted one way or the other based on, what was it, 500 responses? With a 3% margin of error? It's been a long time since statistics class. Point is, if that's 16% of the total number of ballots cast, that's probably plenty for the news.
