    Amazon HQ2

    What's the point of that if the company isn't paying taxes though? Plus, again, Amazon wasn't ever really serious about that 50,000 taxpayers thing. They're just trying to do the bare minimum.

    Official 2018-19 NFL Thread

    I totally read your comment wrong, I thought you were saying "I thought Mitch played, well, bad" and I was like "what game did this fool watch?" then I read it correctly. I gotta say, I think the people who agreed it'd be a good idea to trade Jordan Howard during the offseason were right and I (along with a bunch of other people) was wrong. Save the occasional broken tackle or good discipline to wait for a hole for a long run, he doesn't fit the offense very well and his -2 yard runs ruin the rhythm of drives. It's nice when Trubisky is tossing 20-yard darts and 55-yard bombs or Cohen's running a 75-yard screen, but it doesn't feel the same watching him. Of course maybe I'm completely wrong about this and Adam Shaheen comes in and changes the whole face of the offense.

    That was the only reason anybody thought this game was in doubt (it really wasn't). Stafford deserves credit for his clutch play today though. I'd have to look at numbers but every time they were in 4th and long he converted with a huge gain. Without him doing that the Bears win by 30+.

    Parkey is going full Mason Crosby. You never go full Mason Crosby.

    Ha-ha Clinton-Dix has been in the league, what 4 years now? And I watched him a bunch in college too, but still every time the announcers say his name I think they are saying "ha ha, Clinton-Dix"

    He's big and physical and he's not afraid to fight for balls, I love that in a WR

    Allen Robinson might be kind of okay at football.

    Luis Robert tearing it up in the AFL

    I'd love it if Robert crushed the minors in 2019 the way Jimenez did this year, but there's really no reason to rush him.

    At least a dozen killed in CA bar shooting

    This isn't how PTSD works. People with PTSD don't (usually) go flipping out and murdering people, If anything they're more of a risk to self-harm (just like most people with mental illnesses). They'll have feelings of withdrawal, flashbacks, and so on, maybe try to deal with those feelings by numbing them with drugs and/or alcohol. This is what I meant when I said that's an actively harmful stereotype. Not to make things about me, but for example, just like this guy I used a machine gun in combat and had problems re-adjusting to normal life when I came back and at no point was I ever a danger to anyone. That's not the type of help I needed and that would've just made my issues worse.

    Four 1st rounders was a much better deal but Thibs gonna Thibs.
  12. She has actually made UPGRADES to her game since Rio and she STILL somehow makes it look effortless when she flies around the gym. LOOK AT THIS! She's in uncharted territory.

    At least a dozen killed in CA bar shooting

    Really tired of people bringing up "PTSD" when a person who commits acts of violence is found to be a veteran. That's an actively harmful stereotype, not just to veterans but people suffering from PTSD (veterans and non-veterans).

    Luis Robert tearing it up in the AFL

    I was following Robert's stats closely this year and he was okay - no red flags or signs of alarm to think he was going to be far off track, but certainly not showing off elite prospect talent either. His momentum kept getting stalled by injuries, and it was frustrating. I hope he has better luck going forward.
  15. Aly would've won gold in Rio if her teammate that year wasn't the GOAT.

    Midterms 2018

    I mean, that is Cruz. Except what Cruz does is more like performing Texas cosplay. "Texas is great and uhhhh that was all me and not those San Francisco liberals, I'll stand up to them" standard "they're all out to get us" type rhetoric. All politicians do this when they're campaigning, though. That's the job.

    Midterms 2018

    I'm curious to know how many votes the Nazi running against Dan Lipinski gets. He will almost certainly lose big, but he should be getting *zero* votes.

    Midterms 2018

    There's no meaningful/scientific way to measure this sort of thing, but friends of mine in Texas and Florida are suuuuuuuuper passionate about Beto O'Rourke and Andrew Gillum.

    Midterms 2018

    This isn't exactly new. September and October commercials in even-numbered years are the WORST. If I lived in VA-10 I'd have probably voted for Jennifer Wexton but she's got a commercial where she calls the incumbent "Barbara Trumpstock" that ran at least one every commercial break. Annoying.

    I'm moving on Wednesday and won't have cable in my new house until Saturday - that's gonna be annoying. Guess I'll have to go to my old house to watch the game.

    I thought Jabari Parker was worth taking a chance on. Hooooo boy was I off-base on that. I don't even know what he's supposed to be good at when I watch him. At least he's not a team cancer and it's good that next year is a team option so he's not crippling the cap.
