Seeing as someone walked out of the room uninjured, I'd say that was a good assumption.

I watched most of the first episode of Schitt's Creek, but we couldn't even finish. When did it get good (and how)?
It is pretty simple -- if you like the humor type it is fine, if you don't it is not. *shrug* I don't care for it, never even considered watching a single minute of it. But hey, whatever trips your trigger...

Out of curiosity are you not using google, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, etc etc etc? I mean nearly everything free... and sometimes even premium is storing your data. I would think that anyone thinking the U.S. doesn't have access to this overtly or covertly is probably a little bit gullible.
Well, I do use Gmail, but I no longer use the Google search engine, never have logged into FB, Twitter, or Instagram. I have also never downloaded an application onto my phone. I use disposable email addresses for most on-line interactions requiring one. I've been using an ad blocker on my browser pretty much since they became available. That said, I'm sure plenty of tech companies know more about me than I'd like them to -- that's no reason for me to make it easy for them.

Mitch McConnell blocked President Barack Obama's Supreme Court pick, Merrick Garland, for 293 days.

If that worthless piece of excrement approves a nominee before the election there will be hell to pay.
I thought you had a better grip on reality than that. First, he has said he will do it. Second, it is highly likely he'll succeed. There will be no hell to pay, unless it is in an afterlife.

Does that beat Flint, MI?
Depends how fast they fix the problem ( hint: Flint still isn't fixed after what? 6 years? ) and if anyone has been poisoned with lifetime health consequences ( hint: probably zero since it's not a poisoned water issue ).

Still goddamn funny tho.
Yeah -- the nature and length of the problem in the video is unknown. It would actually be difficult for it to be worse than Flint. You'd think/hope what happened in Flint would cause the complete destruction of the GOP in the state. But amazingly nope...

You're forgoing the possibility that Trump just might win. Worse still, the GOP may actually get the 2/3rd control of Congress they want and need. If that happens America is fucked and the SCOTUS is the least of your worries.
You mean 60 seats in the Senate? Highly unlikely. However as much as I hate saying it, even in a best case scenario in the November election it will take decades to undo the damage done by Trump and his administration. The federal court system is now packed with far right leaning "judges" (in quotes because some of them don't even really qualify for that distinction) with lifetime appointments.

I'd be shocked if McConnell isn't able to get a vote done before 20 Jan 2021. I'd be mildly surprised if he isn't able to get a vote done prior to the election. The only hope is four GOP senators display a backbone -- I wouldn't be money on it.

Hrm, I need to check this out again. Living Ship and Exo Mech sound pretty cool, I have not been paying attention to the NMS updates.
I didn't find either of those updates particularly fun/exciting. But overall the game is certainly worth playing these days. Definitely has at least a couple of hundred hours worth of playtime in it.

Murkowski has publicly stated she will vote against a Trump nominee if one is put forward prior to inauguration in January. Romney hasn't spoken publicly yet but he is likely to follow suit. After that, two additional Republicans would need to break away and unfortunately that's probably too much to hope for.
I am reminded of one of my favorite movie quotes, "Shit! I hate not being the bad guys." Bonus points to anyone who knows it.

I've been paying attention to and watching most to all of the coverage of the Tour since 1985. So weird to watch it in August/Sept.. Winning comment from Phil Liggett well known cycling announcer, near the start of the race, "This was the first time since 1973 that I spent July in England."

Trump supporters want to reopen the schools and the economy, and get things back to normal. The path to that is mask wearing and vaccines, neither of which they support. Trump could catch CV19 and die, and they still wouldn't change their minds. I guess there are some Darwin awards in there somewhere.
Pretty much. Just heard a couple of brief interviews on the radio of people who basically said, "I'm healthy, I take no medications, if I get it, I get it. I'm not going to turn my life upside down." They weren't interested in wearing a mask, getting a vaccine, or voting for anyone but Trump. *shrug* Whatca' goin' do...

November 5... so, if the Presidential election doesn't go the way you hope (whatever that might be), you can hopefully lose yourself in the PS for the next four years.
