Bring and Brag / Re: THE FREEVERSE (COPYLEFT) [777]

Right on! Thank you very kindly, Goddess Eris!

The ticket sales thing seems to be working here: https://humanteamlive.splashthat.com/

Unless it bounces you out when you check out?

Maybe see you there!  :fnord:

It does, tragically. I was already planning to go but hadn't known it was a ticketed event until seeing your post here, so at least I'm more prepared than I was!

Choosing Goddess Eris as my username has proven to be quite a lot to live up to, but at least having no idea what's going on seems to fit this personal brand.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Recent Jailbreaks

Until November I am in the middle of too much to futz around with fnords and hot dogs. If we take back the House and the Senate and Massachusetts manages not to REPEAL transgender protections at the ballot I can take a minute, but for now my cell is a command bunker and everything is more or less where I need it for the war ahead.

LEGIT, HEROIC - and in a lot of ways, what you are doing is a jailbreak in itself - you are letting your values motivate you and choosing conscious discomfort over the easy resting position.

just be sure to keep hydrated and attend to your own fatigue
This.
I've been in kind of a similar state, tho QGP sounds like she's handling it better than I am. Seems like I'm seeking out and spreading information more than I am actually doing my job, which has long since ceased to be helpful to any other actual humans. So I'm transmitting from my bunker but more and more it's feeling like the shells are starting to break through. But to stop transmitting feels like giving up.

Apple Talk / Re: DSPN Presents: World Cup 2018

England will probably get through the group stage, which is more than can be said for Australia.  But I am endlessly amused by England fans who insist on the World Cup as their birthright, despite winning it exactly once, 52 years ago.  So watching England, who are IMO are a consistently overrated team, fail at what should be slam dunk games is extremely satisfying for me.

It needn't be this way, either.  Individually, England has some pretty talented players.  But I don't think I've seen a team more averse to the idea of playing as a team than England.  Compare any footage in the last 20 years of England playing, and then throw up some footage of Brazil, Portugal, Serbia or Germany (probably a better comparison for the overall style of play).  In theory, when playing football, you should be playing against 11 other men, but in the case of England, because everyone's out for themselves, they gimp themselves, and so you only ever have to worry about the one with the ball.

And then they wonder why they can't progress past the quarter finals.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: General Trump hilarity free-for-all thread

There was a recent New Yorker article about how when the children are taken from their parents, the parents are meant to be given some kind of reference number to be able to track their child.  So guess what ICE hasn't been doing?

The article followed the story of just one family simply trying to find out where their daughter was being kept.  They didn't even know where she was.  ICE could confirm that the family tried to enter with a child, and that said child was taken from them, but nothing more.

The potential for child abuse and trafficking is off the charts here.

England have shown once again that they are a top tier team deserving of winning the World Cup by *checks notes* barely limping to victory over Tunisia.

I should like to say something witty, pithy and germane at his point. Sadly the match was yesterday and it was so instantly forgettable that . . . I got nothing

This is not the straw that will break the camel's back. It's just one more thing on the list of things we're sure will finally be the end of this nightmare, only to pale in comparison to the next thing.

At this point, I don’t know what it’s going to take to get Comrade Spanky out of office.

I doubt that his base, who make up about 33 % of The Republicult™, will abandon him for any reason. And given that number of supporters, I don’t see how his impeachment will not lead to open violence across the country.

And, the professional politicians in The Republicult™, who make up nearly all of the politicians in the party, are deathly afraid of their own cultists (The Republicultists™). I sincerely hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see many, if any, of those politicians openly doing a damn thing to get their sociopath out of the White House.

So, when Special Counsel Mueller finally wraps up his investigation, what then? Whatever happens, I don’t believe it’s going to be at all straightforward. I suspect the Attorney General of New York State is going to end up being the pointman, by default, for Comrade Spanky’s ouster.

I am okay with 33% of the country deciding they have to freak the hell out.  Remember Shay's Rebellion?  Neither do I.

And yeah, the New York thing is critical.  Nobody is sure whether Spanky can pardon himself at the federal level, but he certainly cannot pardon himself at the state level...and a pardon at the federal level is an admission of guilt, which would make the New York thing interesting as hell.

Nope, I don’t remember Shay’s Rebellion. But, I did look it up.

What makes the comparison of Shay’s Rebels versus The Republicultists™ of today especially interesting, however, is that The Republicultists™ are actually being screwed over by the policies being enacted by their own party’s elite! Now, that takes a special kind of stupid!
