Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Preparation may include forming concrete plans to leave the US. I don't the spare $10,000 necessary to apply for a visa anywhere. And even if I did, I'm permanently disabled -- not exactly the sort of person who countries fall all over themselves to offer permanent residency to. I don't even have a...

Re: TNG Episode Tier List

Funny, and I just got done ranting about how everyone/Mike from RLM has the wrong idea about why Crosby quit a few weeks ago! The irony is that, right before going into the stuff with McFadden, the video I was watching repeated the cover story about Denise Crosby leaving to pursue more challenging ...

Re: TNG Episode Tier List

Season 2 introduces Doctor Katherine Pulaski, an older woman who replaces Crusher while Gates McFadden was on maternity leave for the season. I thought it was because McFadden wouldn't take crap from Gene Roddenberry or, more commonly at this point, Gene's lawyer Leonard Maizlish, and was thus fire...

Read one post up, Newbie just did. This thread is A tier, and all the other tier lists are, I guess, trash that's not even worth listing.

Re: Buttcoin

Is it just that the verification process involved in the transactions is distributed among active miners due to the decentralized nature of crypto, so fewer miners means less spare power for transaction verification? Yes. If that's the case does this mean that the problem of ever-increasing process...

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

My girlfriend and I were binge-watching some science fiction show I hadn't heard of. It turned out to be four seasons long. The first episode opens on an open-air marketplace. A set of elaborately filigreed double-doors swing out from an imposing wall. Two soldiers (one male, one female) in early mi...

Re: What about a thread for good news?

Maybe my standards for good news have dropped a bit recently, but: 31 members of white nationalist group arrested near Coeur d’Alene pride event Holy shit, cops actually did their jobs, arrested a far-right militia group, and prevented a violent hate crime on the pride parade! In Idaho of all places...

Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

Honestly, this is probably the case, because it seems a lot closer to the level of competence on display by all involved.

Re: The Star Trek Thread

B5 was on at the same time as DS9 and were basically the same show. Like, uh. Pretty much exactly. So. Uh. I've actually never gone through it (I caught a decent number of eps when it was airing, but out of order) but I hear it's just as good. I struggle to believe that as B5 does not have Garak, b...

Via Silversong on IRC: Three Judge Panel Unanimously Rules that Bees Are 'Fish' (for the purposes of California's Endangered Species Act, which specifically enumerates that it protects birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and plants.) They reached this ruling by way of the fact that shrimp, which a...

Re: Hot Tweets Cool Treats

The reason that MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT was trending is because a sports news broadcaster said MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT before running the incredibly minor story that the SF Giants' Manager says he won't appear on the field during the national anthem as protest against the state of the country.
