  1. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Just came from a meeting with the DA's Office, PD's Office, and the Judge about how on earth we can do trials during this mess, since we have an attempted murder scheduled in August. The overwhelming opinion of the group is that it probably can't be done constitutionally. And of course not doing the trials at all brings its own problems for people charged with serious offenses in jail unable to make bond. It's a mess.
  2. How would you rank the QBs in each division?

    AFCN - Lamar Jackson, Ben Roethlisberger, Baker Mayfield, Joe Burrow: Big Ben may have something left in the tank, Baker has plenty to prove still, and Burrow is a rookie. AFCE - Cam Newton, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Tua Tagovailoa: This one is all over the place, but Newton has proven more than either Darnold or Allen. AFCS - Deshaun Watson, Ryan Tannehill, Philip Rivers, Gardner Minshew: I think Tannehill will probably be better for the rest of Rivers' career, and Minshew I don't have real faith in. AFCW -Patrick Mahomes, Drew Lock, Derek Carr, Justin Herbert: I liked what Lock looked like at the end of the season, and he now has serious weapons. NFCN -Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Kirk Cousins, Mitch Trubisky: I was very wrong about Trubisky, and I've never been high on Cousins. NFCE -Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott, Daniel Jones, Dwayne Haskins: I liked Haskins as a prospect more than Jones, but Jones has looked better in the NFL so far. NFCS -Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater: I loved Bridgewater as a prospect, but he hasn't stuck it out well in the NFL. I don't think Brady has much left in the tank, but Brees still does. If Brady is slightly better than a shadow of his former self, he's No. 2. NFCW - Russell Wilson, Jimmy Garropolo, Kyler Murray, Jared Goff: The last three are hard to sort out, but Garropolo looked good more recently. I'm still not on the Murray hype train, but he seems like he'll be a competent QB. Goff is looking more like he flashed in the pan. I mean, I had Mahomes as a late prospect as well. Didn't see an air raid guy finally making the leap. Oh well.
  3. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    Yeah, but Cleveland doesn't have the coach that got him his best years or his former Texan BFF on the roster. And Cleveland hasn't proven they're a contender yet.
  4. Yeah. I don’t like Exorcist as much as others do, but it’s undoubtedly a classic and made a whole subgenre of horror.
  5. Unpopular culinary opinions

    Well I'm sorry they're related to a man of such poor taste. But in all seriousness, watermelon is probably my favorite fruit. And there are so many varieties of delicious, delicious fruits. I'm growing a seedless cultivar called Moon and Stars right now, which is yellow inside. Watermelon is best when salted btw.

    He's also a better fit in Tennessee's scheme. The Titans have a bunch of slighter, faster, twitchier EDGEs, and someone like Clowney would really complement them well. He's got a spot carved out for him to do what he does best in Tennessee under the coach he was most productive under, and it's a team that's a contender. He won't find a better fit.
  7. Speaking of which: People who "don't like vegetables" are children.
  8. Eh, I have to disagree. If it's good, homemade bread, then yeah, the heel is the best part, but if we're talking crappy bagged grocery store bread, then they suck. I just use them for toast and jam or to make bread crumbs.
  9. I mean gratuitous in the whole girl power thing. It was way over the top, and when I see that in a movie, it kind of makes me think it's sort of in bad faith. If they really wanted to show adequate representation, have those female Avengers contribute to the battle in meaningful ways on their own, not just group up and say 'look how great we all are standing here' for one scene. Which is what makes it corny IMO. I still think Endgame is the better movie overall.
  10. Gotta go with Shinning. The only thing more terrifying than that is a stubbed toe.
  11. It bothers me because it's gratuitous. I'm all for representation of every kind, but squeezing it into one scene makes it feel more like they're ticking boxes than anything more meaningful. And like it's been said before, Captain Marvel doesn't need help, the only Avengers close to her power level are Thor and Hulk.
  12. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    That's devious. I like it.
  13. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    It's a novel virus because it's fictional, you sheep. I'll be here all week.
  14. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    What if malice is simpler than stupidity? Does Occam's razor mean we disregard Hanlon's razor? Or do we just attribute the miscalculation to Occam's stupidity?
  15. My assumption with Thanos getting the stones is that there's a bit of a learning curve that Strange didn't have. Plus Strange seemed to be sitting there meditating for a long time looking at all the possible outcomes, and Thanos was in a hurry once he knew people were trying to stop him. That and he seemed to avoid using the stones for the most part. Same reason he destroyed them at the beginning of EG: the stones are powerful, and he knew that they shouldn't be used unless they really needed to be. It was pretty central to his character. Another take on it (at least as far as why he didn't just kill Tony or anyone else) was that Thanos wasn't specifically trying to kill Stark or Strange, or any of that. The directors said that's why Thanos suddenly seems a lot tougher to defeat in the second movie, because he's actually not trying to use lethal force on the Avengers in IW, he just needs them out of his way so he can get what he wants. By EG, he's realized that the Avengers are a legitimate threat that will continue to find ways to resist him, so his only option is to wipe them out.
