Also, Cain, how accurate do you find this to be?

All seems to fall in line with what is being reported elsewhere, in previous reports and based on my own experience.

They wanted to energize and enrage conservatives and depress the black vote presumably on the basis of increasing the turnout for Trump and decreasing it for Clinton.  And the techn companies turned a blind eye to what was happening because they were getting mad advertising revenue for it (paid in RUBLES in some cases) and then covered up how aware they were of the problem.

Yeah, I got a few of the source books a few years back and I got lost fairly quickly.  By all accounts the game is very similar in that regard - between the subraces, the subclasses and the feats, it's very easy to lose track of it all.  I'm half-tempted just to go sword and board fighter for the sake of simplicity.

Best of luck, even though I think the deck is stacked against you on this one.

The true (((secret))) meaning of "smocking" according to Qanon.

Sorry, couldn't stand to bear Trump be called "the maestro" unironically any more so I had to shut it off.

Purchased Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Looks like it could be what NWN was originally promised to be, before Bioware decided having a "plot" or "engaging characters" or "workable tools for controlling a party" was too much work and just decided to hawk the Aurora Toolset.  Well, with Pathfinder rules instead of 3rd ed., but we all know Pathfinder is D&D 3.75 Edition.  Also with kingdom management, for those Civilization fans out there.

Anyway, give me some OP Pathfinder builds.  By all accounts the game hews very closely to the PnP version, so I assume meta builds in PnP would work fine in the game, for the most part.

With Chris Christie refusing, I believe that leaves the position to either Jared Kushner or Piers Morgan

A 7 year old girl died from dehydration in Border Patrol's custody.  She had been separated for her father, and kept with them for in excess of 8 hours before she was admitted for medical treatment.  She, along with several others who were picked up had not had food or water for several days.

DHS is refusing to say if she was given food or water while she was in their custody, which of course means they didnt.

what's the central line? noisy train, I'm guessing?

do you mean that the flat mates bother you up when they come home at midnight?

It's one of the major tube lines through London.  As Faust says, it means getting onto trains where you're nose to nose with people if you're lucky.  I've had sex that was less intimate and involved less body contact.

And yeah.  They don't mean to, its not their fault that the walls are all paper thin.  They come home, they want to eat and have a smoke before bed.  That's pretty fair. Fortunately for now I still have use of the old place, so it's not a major deal.  But come January, I need alternative solutions.

If the no confidence vote passes, a GE would be called right? Surely in that case they would vote to rescind article 50? Walking into a no deal, with no preparation and no government, it's like this mess wasn't dangerous enough so they poured gasoline on it.

Fixed Parliaments Act. You'd need 2/3rds of Parliament to agree first.

Urgh.  Problems with the new flat are becoming apparent.  Not least that flat-mates, who all seem decent lads, work late shift.  I can be flexible to an extent with mine, but the realities of the central line mean working anything but 0730-1600 is insanity.  But if the lads are getting back at midnight...  Also problems getting things fixed in a timely manner, some clearly broken things that shouldn't be etc. 

I am tied into a contract, but I do have the option to move to another building (leased by the same firm).  May not be a long-term solution, but I can try and pick somewhere more sturdy, with older and more professional people living there.  But with Xmas coming up sorting it out is gonna be tricky.  Might have to wait for the new year.  And then moving again, urgh...

It's OK.  When the Brexit treaty vote fails, Corbyn will trigger a no confidence vote, and then it will get clusterfucky

Worth noting, since it's always missed in these discussions, that Flynn not only had suspicious contacts with the  Russian government, but also with the Turkish government who had hired his consulting firm, Flynn Associates, to provide information on Turkish opposition figures in the US and in one case, to figure out a plan to illegally rendition one back to Turkey.  At the very least Pence's vetting should have picked up on the Turkish government contracts.

Why does that remind me of Khashoggi?

It was Gulen, in case you were wondering, Erdogan's one time ally turned "George Soros" of Turkish politics.
