  1. The perfect companion piece to The Social Dilemma is Agents of Chaos on HBO. I'm only 45 minutes into it but it already has explained so much I didn't really understand about Russian influence and meddling in our election process. So far it seems to be a very evenhanded documentary, presenting facts and not a partisan hack job. It explains how/why Russia got involved in disinformation (Ukraine before our elections) and I think it is headed towards explaining much about the social unrest issues facing the US. I'm beginning to think the whole BLM vs Blue Lives thing has been greatly exaggerated
  2. Ha, I SUCK big time when I have to speak in front of a group. I would skydive without a chute before I’d sign up for toastmasters.
  3. It definitely would be more consequential. 2 is more than 1, 2M is more than 5, 000 etc. but I totally get what @teachercd is saying. 1 vote (each vote) is the most important thing and we have to treat it as such. Looking at it any other way is what causes some people to feel their vote doesn't count. It's why we have pathetic voter turnout rates. But yes, obviously Trump or anyone f#&%ing around with the actual voting results would have more dire consequences than 1 ballot getting lost.
  4. I agree. Send out whatever to the taxpayers now and argue about the other stuff later. I, and many, don't need that money to survive but there are a whole bunch of people that do. It would provide immediate aid to those who need it most and, for those who don't need it, would likely help boost the overall economy with some splurge purchases.
  5. Why are we using overall records as the criteria when there is more than a handful of head to head matchups to look at? I guess it just depends which side wants to tout a preconceived position. The original claim was that “Penn State always destroyed Nebraska”. That is simply not true. And then people started listing overall records which has absolutely nothing to do with PSU historically destroying us or not....
  6. Quick story. I actually won the tickets to The Wall through The Bear radio station. I don’t usually call in for those deals but I was driving to work and they were playing extremely short snippets of Pink Floyd songs. The 10th caller with the correct answer wins. They played about two chords of Have a Cigar and I got through at the right time. But that only won me tickets to an Eagles hockey game where I had to go down on the ice between periods 1 & 2 for another competition. They had thrown tons of CD’s on the ice with song names written on them and several of us had to scramble to find t
  7. It definitely accentuated the laser Floyd show I went to many years ago. I did see the Roger Waters The Wall show at Pepsi Center in Denver 7ish years ago. Only a slight contact high for that one but still great. Would've loved to have seen Queen live in their prime but nada.
  8. Of course I strictly meant from natural causes..... That’s on okay thing to hope for, right?
  9. Of course your spin on this does not surprise me. In fact the only thing that would surprise me is if you actually knew what you were talking about. The dems/Pelosi have been trying to get a much larger aid packaged passed and are being obstructed by the repubs/Trump. Those darned dems trying to sneak things in the bill to prevent the aid being given to people who don’t need it, large corporations who don’t need it, etc. How conveniently you forget/ignore that the repubs control the executive and the Senate. Duuuuurrr let’s blame the dems, duuuuurrrr.
  10. Im sure most have connected these dots, but just in case... The reason Trump is encouraging his supporters to vote by absentee, mail-in etc. is; 1- Of course he wants them to vote for him. And he knows there is no real problem with voting that way. 2- It helps drive up the numbers (percentage) of people not voting in person which will provide him added ammunition to dispute the results and take extraordinary measures because of his pre-positioned claims of illegitimacy of mail-in and absentee ballots. He gets what he wants either way. It’s why he’s
  11. I think the intent was well reasoned...the execution, not so much. Boulder saw drastic increases in the spread of Covid when the students got back on campus. The majority of CU students were ignoring any and all mitigation efforts, wilder parties than usual, etc. and were pretty much the sole contributors to the problem. So I understand what the Peoples Republic of Boulder was attempting. But yeah, the narrow targeting of that certain demographic would seem to be a problem.
  12. Friends don’t let friend’s kids go to CU. Shame on you.
  13. My 2 cents. I think it looks great and I don’t usually dig changes. The best part is it is locked in and fits my iPad screen, finally. No more bouncing left-right. Everything appears a bit sharper and more refined. Haven’t had a chance to explore much else yet and haven’t tried it on my phone. Edit- I withdraw some of my praise after visiting the site on my phone. The subtext font is way too light. They're a very light gray on white background....not good. Not as noticable on a larger screen but squint worthy on the smaller device.
  14. It just happened to me for the first time. I simply clicked the tab for loading the home page and got a pop up box asking if I wanted to download the file t.something. Seems a little sketchy.
  15. Unfortunately, or fortunately, anything Pat Forde has to say about Nebraska football has to be taken with a grain of salt. It really doesn't matter if he's right or if he's wrong, his predisposition disqualifies him. I don't care about any of these jokers harsh truths because our fans run the gamut from excessively delusional to painstakingly realistic, as any fanbase does. Any attempt to paint the whole fanbase one way or the other is incorrect. It has to be because we aren't all the same. And Desmond is just a f#ckin clown that should be thanking God every day he still has that job.
