  1. I always though Charles Taylor was railroaded.
  2. I go back and forth on S1 and S2 as favorites. S2 has such a wide range of character development and performances. It's kind of a winter tradition to rewatch.
  3. I'm working on marketing it globally. Looks like Russia is out unless I can get Griner to hawk it there when she goes back to play?
  4. This thread is a gold mine.
  5. This seems to be the key to what I have read here and elsewhere: "But even conservative justices who had previously voiced some sympathy with the independent state legislature theory seemed frustrated with Thompson’s insistence on making aggressive arguments for legislative power instead of offering more measured interpretations. The real intellectual energy of the argument focused on just how the Court might sketch a narrower vision of the independent state legislature theory that could provide some level of increased freedom for legislatures without fully unleashing state lawmakers to do their worst. Conservative Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh, along with Chief Justice John Roberts, seemed notably interested in this approach." https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2022/12/moore-harper-scotus-independent-state-legislature/672399/
  6. If you look at a number of small studies, you find positive work metrics. Not all. If you look at Murray's arguments they infer even more social incentives for positive behavior. Of course, his model is wholesale replacement of the current system.
  7. The Dunning-Kruger examples are out in force today.
  8. I love those deep insights.
  9. Old Charles tweeted this today:
  10. It's as expected. I don't do political stuff on FB, but an old friend posted on the topic and the idiots came out in force.
  11. I sure wish she was still in the gulag. The U.S. would be so much stronger.
  12. It's not a matter of why. It's a what until it isn't. If only we just ignore him. If only the media didn't keep him relevant. If only the government would leave him alone. If only the Democrats weren't obsessed. Etc.
  13. So? None of that sh!t has happened yet.
  14. A little snow left on the ground so doing S2 Fargo rewatch.
  15. Repubs aren't past Trump until they take on the lunacy. If he were at 1% in the polls, it would be different, but he is announced and in contention. I don't see him getting the nomination, but until he's literally or figuratively politically dead...
  16. Santa is wandering around a bit lost, but it's only the 7th. I plan to fade 1-2 % if we get a real Santa Claus rally.
  17. Oral arguments this morning/early p.m. I think they over. I've been busy so not following closely. CNN had live updates. Some blogs will be doing a recap later. I have a feeling Roberts' will guide the ruling(s).
  18. Finished Reservation Dogs S2. I'm going to rewatch it. Better than S1. Love the characters and stories. We got a little snow on the ground. So, it was time to rewatch Fargo S1. Three days to get to E8. Still a good winter watch.
  19. We're not a highly educated nation. There's a FB post going somewhat viral this week. I've seen it copied and pasted a few times by generally good people. It's a mumbo jumbo word salad of idiocy, but it strikes emotional chords. That's where we are as a nation.
  20. Thought it would not be quite so close. Fvcking Georgians.
  21. 35% of vote in. 55.4% to 44.6%. Too early to call.
  22. Oh, the party elites and many Republican voters want to move on, but they haven't moved on. If they really were past Trump, there would have been a chorus from the party over the suspend the Constitution post (among plenty of other stuff). Crickets for the most part. The fact that some polling is showing DeSantis ahead in a 1-on-1 matchup or even Liz Cheney ahead of Trump in Utah almost makes those crickets even more embarrassing for the party. Send your Republican reps magnifying glasses so they can find their balls.
