Re: Politics & Current Events

I don't believe Clinton ever had a +15 poll. She had a couple of +14s, one as late as mid-October. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html#polls If I'm reading this right, one poll hit +14 in early October, another hit +15 in August, an...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I liked Happy Death Day fine, but comparing it to Palm Springs is a bit like saying ‘if you liked Trading Places then Get Out is for you’ because both are commentaries on racism. To this I would say that the terrific sequel, Happy Death Day 2U , maybe did one really same thing way better than Palm ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Small states are massively over represented. We need to combine a bunch of states. like Minnekota and Wymontana? Make it Wymontado and I think you're good.

I passed on that one. Not a fan of mint flavored things and usually can’t even get through an entire can of any milkshake IPA. Agree about Noon Whistle. Most of their gummy series are good, but not great compared to other stuff available now. They kinda started the NE IPA craze in the Chicago area,...

Yes, it's really good.

Check out W.H. Lung, for sure some Talking Heads vibes. Probably my favorite album of 2019.
