  1. I just wanna know which island in the Caribbean that Mug is now buying, what with his windfall Board sale proceeds...
  2. Occasionally, you can find a really good one at a nicer restaurant. Ate a killer burger in Sonoma a few years back at “the girl & the fig”. A superb concoction that was super juicy and needed no other condiments. Brioche bun was a nice touch, so this was a French place. Probably cost about $15.00. Expensive, I know, but worth every last penny (bite). Excellent fries, too...
  3. Just means they didn't steal the correct Big Pharma data files from the U.S. Some dumb-dumb grabbed the non-encrypted viagra files...
  4. You're kind of living in the past. Jury sequestering is dying out - even in high profile cases. There are a lot of issues articulated in just this one 2017 article (Bill Cosby trial). https://www.thecut.com/2017/06/sequestered-jury-psychological-toll-cosby-trial.html Think of the "withdrawals" a sequestered juror has to go through nowadays. Not only with family, but with all social media and, especially, their smartphone. Sounds silly, but you try going 3, 4, 5 weeks without that (let alone being around family). Good luck with that one. Like it or not, we ALL probably have pr
  5. JFC, I’m so tired of reading about this stuff. We are a phucked-up “free” society, to say the least...
  6. You should definitely watch Schindler's, but, man, Goodfellas is an absolute must. I have yet to come across anyone (male) that hasn't thought it was a damn good movie...
  7. Ditto. Just watched "Mank", the b/w film starring Gary Oldman, who played the (alcoholic) writer of that movie. As a story it was hard to watch, but Oldman's acting chops have never been in doubt. Whatever level of disinterest I had in the story aside, the dude is just a really, really good actor. I guess the point here is that watching that film has actually had the opposite intended effect that I had hoped for: instead of having a greater desire to watch Citizen Kane, the net result is that sitting through that movie has (significantly) lessened it. Go figure...
  8. Must be pretty good free Wi-fi in the City for Joe to post on and off again here...
  9. The fentanyl argument was really shredded today, too. Tobin said you go into a coma if you OD on that. However, he said in no uncertain terms that Floyd did NOT go into a coma...
  10. Yes there is. Fair enough...
  11. Yeah. Nelson was choking in his cross, both figuratively and literally. Trying to get Tobin to stipulate that the circumstances could change by the millisecond was sort of a “Captain Obvious” statement - you know, about life in general. I mean, I can’t recall specifics, but Tobin shut him down on more than one occasion...
  12. Assuming too much? Hardly. Tobin made a lot of scientific assertions, all of which appeared to be well-established. I think the prosecution was wise to not bury the jury in minutia in that regard, but if push comes to shove, I have no doubt that his widely-held positions can be further established, if necessary. I mean, the defense sort of shit the bed in its cross examination of him. Just watch/listen to it. They made no headway against his testimony whatsoever... IMO, that doesn’t bode well for their own “experts” down the road because, again, Tobin came across as both honest and ve
  13. They were indeed shot to hell. For those commenting here and that didn’t actually listen today, IMO, you really missed out on some of the most compelling testimony you could ever expect to hear. I mean, I learned a lot today on the subject of breathing and didn’t even “want to” you know? it was nevertheless pretty enlightening... Although the circumstances surrounding the need for said testimony is the absolute shits of the world (what Floyd had to endure was sheer torture, plain and simple), I find it hard to believe there will be enough to refute all that was said by Tobin today.
  14. Just sharpening the pitchfork...
  15. I don’t think that will override Chauvins personal responsibility in the Floyd circumstance. He can be the most trained cop in the world, but if his actions are deemed to have caused Floyd’s death - even without intent to kill - he’s toast. When it comes to the other (defense) experts, all I can say is that they had better be extraordinary (for Chauvin’s sake). The prosecution got out of the gate in tremendously important aspects of the medical/cause of death questions today. A 10 out of 10, many trial experts are saying. Yes, it only takes one to have doubts, but I’m telling you both the
