Shit, man. Why do the good jobs have to be nestled in horribleness?

They don't READ them, of course. They get an inaccurate plot summary, and ban it based on that.


I guess human sacrifice could be seen as "occult"?

Taking bets on which news team is going to call Hannity first.

Trump's going to gish gallop his way to victory.  The journos will call it for Hillary but the public polls will say otherwise.  And it'll be hard to tell whether that's the public eating it up, or /pol/ and The_Donald brigading the shit out of every online poll in sight.

Yeah, I'm probably gonna watch Saints/Falcons, instead.

Who's got the betting pool on tonight's debate?

I have one theory. Trump will do a classic sitcom bit: Hillary will describe a policy position, and then Trump will immediately parrot it, then take credit.  Since apparently the moderators are prevented from correcting anyone, Hillary will be forced to complain that Trump stole her idea, which he'll deny, then lie about her stealing [/i] his[/i] idea, because they're so great.  And then he gets elected.

Amazingly, I have one.

A time-travel adventure series, a la Quantum Leap, but a team. They have to go back in time and "fix" events to make them align with the current universe, which has been determined to difinitively be in the class of best of all possible universes.

The twist: Every event they have to "fix" are tragedies and horrors. They have to blow up the Hindenberg. They have to kill Lincoln. They have to save Hitler's life. They have to initiate the abuse at the Iraqi prisons.

Eventually, one of the team starts to wonder about the morality of sacrificing the past for the benefit of the future, and begins to sabotage missions. Another narrative thread begins when the viewers start to see what the botched missions change.

Guys!  I just learned the NRA was the reason why the North ended the war and stopped slavery!   :lulz:

what the what

Oh, right.

Who's got a properly snarky rebuttal on this?

Even weirder physics could see it reborn as a gravity drive.

well, that's the fucking thing.  It looks like gravity is shared by all universes, which means the drive doesn't work, which means no space demons.

I could fucking cry.

The universe is both incredibly weird and horribly mundane at the same time.  It's fantastically upsetting.

Yeah, there's a lot of stuff going on.  Our brains really don't intuitively grasp that much complexity, do they?

As far as I can tell, no proof of quid pro quo is there.  It's shady, but I have the feeling it's politics as normal.
