  1. To my reckoning, even if Trump isn't impeached, we need enough solid, foolproof evidence of Trump's ... indiscretions that even if he's not impeached or convicted, it's painfully obvious to the American voting public that the Republicans who vote against impeaching/convicting are complicit with his crimes and won't get re-elected. That would at least be something of a victory. Unfortunately, nobody ever lost money betting on the stupidity of the average American voter.
  2. And considering how small Nixon's sense of shame was ... Trump's ego won't let him resign, even if the polls to impeach hit 99% ...he'll just decry them as 'fake news' as he does to anything that doesn't support him.
  3. So, one of the things that put off us buying and moving into the house was that it needed some foundation work, because the basement leaked. This was put off for three months, the walls have these weird anchor things in them now which will probably stop us from truly finishing the basement like we want to. But, this was supposed to prevent leaking and risking damaging anything in the basement. It's. Still. F***ing. Leaking. Even a moderate rain has water coming in through the walls they specifically worked on, with those big anchor things, and I just completely lost my s**t, screaming at the top of my lungs, using every swear word I know, and kicking an empty cardboard box around. This was a mistake. THIS WAS ALL A HUGE MISTAKE. A F***ING $150,000 MISTAKE. A mistake I'm going to be paying for for the next 30 years. What was I thinking? I knew, deep down, this wasn't going to work, because I'm not allowed to have anything good happen to me. I'm just life's f***ing punching bag.
  4. Got all the big stuff, furniture etc moved Saturday afternoon, yay. Haven't got internet turned on there yet, not sure how long it'll take, so I'll be incommunicado for an indeterminate period of time.
  5. A good treatise, IMHO, on the 'videogames cause violence' debacle:
  6. Also, appealing to people's fears is more effective than appealing to either their hopes or their reason.
  7. To be fair, the US has been at war* for over 220 of the years its been in existence, so neither has virtually anybody else. *Depending on how one defines 'war'. If you want to be technical, the US has declared war five times against 11 different nations: War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II. Obviously, many 'informal wars' have been fought, such as Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq; calling something a 'war' seems to be a way to get support for it, over 'police action' or 'invasion'.
  8. Argh. I should have said 'windscreen' instead, because England.
  9. I'm going to steal this SO HARD first chance I get.
  10. "And whosoever shall pull the sword from the windshield shall be crowned King of England."
  11. "Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people."
  12. Apropos of nothing, but in the random public league I joined to kind of practice draft, I won my first week game by 0.2 points.
  13. Lessee here now, looking up the US legal code on such things ... one checklist, as ordered. 5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that— (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States Well, A and C are no-brainers, at the very least.
  14. Seems petty after the last few entries but ... Sweet Solus Prime, moving is a pain in the ass. And back. And shoulders. And legs. What few good vibes I can generate, going out. Good luck.
  15. Oh, if they don't make a worked shoot out of this, they are missing a golden (no pun intended) opportunity, no doubt. They should just go "Okay, Jericho, this is your bit now. Have fun with it."
