  1. Prediction Game 2018

    You need another one Smythe - from the east.
  2. Again the connection was made, and again Duncan Warner sprang in his chair and shouted, but, indeed, were it not that he still remained in the chair none of us would have recognised him. His hair and his beard had shredded off in an instant, and the room looked like a barber's shop on a Saturday night. There he sat, his eyes still shining, his skin radiant with the glow of perfect health, but with a scalp as bald as a Dutch cheese, and a chin without so much as a trace of down. He began to revolve one of his arms, slowly and doubtfully at first, but with more confidence as he went on. "That jint," said he, "has puzzled half the doctors on the Pacific Slope. It's as good as new, and as limber as a hickory twig." "The Los Amigos Fiasco", 1892.

    This year the standings are much tighter than usual, I think.
  4. This is gold, platinum and Corneliu's wet dream : The next time you call for bipartisan cooperation in America and long for Republicans and Democrats to work side by side, stop it. Remember the great lesson of California, the harbinger of America’s political future, and realize that today such bipartisan cooperation simply can’t get done. In this current period of American politics, at this juncture in our history, there’s no way that a bipartisan path provides the way forward. The way forward is on the path California blazed about 15 years ago. ... California today provides a model for America as a whole. This model of politics and government is by no means perfect, but it is far ahead of the nation in coming to terms with the inexorable digital, global, sustainable transformation of our era. It is a thriving work in progress that gives hope that America can pull out of the political mess we’re in. California today provides a playbook for America’s new way forward. It’s worth contemplating as we enter 2018, which will be a critical election year. Would you like to see a big endorser? That's, for a moment... The Founder of Twitter. Obviously even if we send him on a time travel trip to 1937 and back, he won't get it...
  5. If you meet a recent Pulitzer laureate, who is proud of his prize, spit in his face, call him deplorable and never speak to him again. The New York Times and the New Yorker won a Pulitzer Prize this week for their coverage of sexual abuse on the same day that Kendrick Lamar became the first rapper to win the prestigious award. Here are laudatory quotes about the sexual-misconduct Pulitzer, alternating with lyrics from Lamar’s prize-winning album, “Damn.” Quote: “For explosive, impactful journalism that exposed powerful and wealthy sexual predators … bringing them to account for long-suppressed allegations of coercion, brutality and victim silencing, thus spurring a worldwide reckoning about sexual abuse of women.” -- Pulitzer public-service citation naming Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of the Times and Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker. Kendrick Lamar Lyric: Today is the day I follow my intuition Keep the family close – get money, **** *******. -- From the song “Yah.” Quote: ''By revealing secret settlements, persuading victims to speak and bringing powerful men to account, we spurred a worldwide reckoning about sexual abuse that only seems to be growing.'' -- Dean Baquet, executive editor, the New York Times. Lyric: Girl, I can buy yo’ ass the world with my paystub Ooh, that ***** good, won’t you sit it on my taste bloods? More in the link.

    Yes. Because the series will end after game 7 anyways...
  7. For Corneliu, it's either Trump is wrong, or both sides are wrong. It's never "DNC is wrong". And he himself is the most fertile soil into which the discord seeds - which are indeed there - are falling. It's him, and the sourpuss, and the hongweibings, and the media, who can see nothing but "All Trump does is wrong" and their neo-Marxist ideal of universal happiness dictated by the state above. Which, they are under illusion, they are going to dictate. Instead, go read Bulgakov and Solzhenitsyn, FFS.

    The cascade of movements sort of evens things out, this season no coach was fired during the time their team was still playing, first time in many years.

    Sean Kuraly is doing very decently in Boston, BTW.
  10. Thought of organizing your event through EventBrite? Think again! The merchant agreement specifies that you "grant permission to Eventbrite and its agents to enter onto and remain on the premises (including real property, fixtures, equipment, or other personal property) where your event is hosted...with personnel and equipment for the purpose of photographing and recording the Premises, both internally and externally in connection with the production of digital content on the date of your event(s) and any other dates reasonably requested by Eventbrite (for example, during setup and breakdown for the event) (the 'Shoot')." But in addition, you're also granting them permission to record and use footage of all your attendees and speakers, "in any manner, in any medium or context now known or hereafter developed, without further authorization from, or compensation to." And after that Eventbrite "will own all rights of every nature whatsoever in and to all films and photographs taken and recordings made hereunder, including without limitation of all copyrights therein and renewals and extensions thereof, and the exclusive right to use and exploit the Recordings in any manner, in any medium or context now known or hereafter developed..." You're even responsible for obtaining all the clearances and licenses "necessary to secure Eventbrite the permissions and rights described above," and you also release Eventbrite from any claims that may arise regarding use of the Recordings, "including, without limitation, any claims of defamation, invasion of privacy, or infringement of rights of likeness, publicity or copyright."
  11. both rp42 and the jinger miss the point in Germany, it was devised to keep people in, not out, and a totalitarian state had its own approach to its own citizens which is not applicable.
  12. I wonder how badly Sunnyvale crashed in 2008/09. A 3bd 1 bath 10000 sq.ft. next to ours in with a Saratoga address (arguably better than than Sunnyvale) sold short for $530K in 2012.
  13. US is significantly larger than Israel budget-wise, personnel-wise and economy-wise. Probably by more than 2000 to 150. I agree that the law enforcement against the enablers is the area that needs the biggest improvement. Starting from both politicians like Kevin de Leon, and the farm owners/building contractors. The welfare system must be also tightened up, so that every able-bodied recipient has to be given a choice of working in the positions currently stuffed with illegals or face welfare payments termination.
