Re: The Science Thread

So is anybody going to watch the eclipse or be down near Carbondale? Looks too cloudy in Chicago. My son's school got a grant to get eclipse glasses for all the kids and it's gonna end up being too cloudy. Disappointing. Yeah that sucks, but the good news is the next one is in April, 2024. https://...

Re: TV thread

Defenders was fun. Dialog got pretty repetitive at points, and like all of the series I thought it lost steam at the end.

I'd like to see them make all of these 8 episodes. Seemed a perfect length.

Well that doesn't quite tell the whole story. Molina failed to catch a throw home on a hit off the green monster that scored 2.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump's Presidency is cratering. He's heading to Camp David and has called back Pence early for a national security meeting. Strap in, folks. Any insight to what this could be about? I doubt it's handing over the reigns to Pence. Yeah if he was handing the reigns to Pence, it wouldn't have been a g...

I don't disagree necessarily with all these resignations but weren't all these people, at least in theory, voices of sanity who had exposure to Trump. So we're past trying to reign in this fool and are just willing to let him go to further extremes till his support just snaps and Congress turns on ...

TBS Playoffs Insider wrote:imagine if they send him down again how good he'll be


He was sent down to the Arizona Fall League and came back to be a WS hero, so clearly, the farther he's sent down, the better he is when he comes back.

That's just science.
