Then again, people have been gullible since the dawn of man, so probably not much has changed, just the delivery system for the bullshit.
One of the Manafort jurors said she agreed with Trump that it was all a witch hunt, but voted to convict on all 18 counts anyway. Try to fit that into your brain...

I don't care to defend or attack the study. If it really is a "major" study the results almost certainly can't be properly condensed into a two page web article, let alone a headline. Especially considering it is about health, which is a subject where it is hard to collect/eliminate/correlate all the necessary variables.

Cutter, is there anything you aren't an expert on? Thanks for keeping us straight on what the truth is. How often do you lunch with Giuliani?

I assume it is a competitionist thing -- I know this game has tons of purchase DLC. It might actually be cheaper to be on subscription than to buy all the engines and whatever...

What I don't get is why they didn't use eminent domain to take the land they needed to complete the highway.
I'd guess they were getting plenty of pressure from groups complaining of increased traffic/pollution/etc.

A will and trust can be set up to give your belongings to your siblings, an aunt or uncle, your grandparents. Maybe that coworker you like. You tell the state whom to give your possessions to when you die regardless of how much you have, and by law, they must honor your wishes.
Yes, I fully understand the implications. I was simply indicating no one is or will be dependent on a quick settlement of my estate. Frankly, creating a will in my case is pretty much just a matter of being considerate to my two sisters (reducing their work load to settle the estate).

At the time of her death, Aretha Franklin did not have a will or trust.
Wow, what a total failure by whatever advisors she had. I'm assuming she wasn't a literal one person show as far as her business dealings were concerned. (Says the guy who has been telling himself for a good 5 years now that he needs to get a will made. However in my defense, I have no dependents and I'm not rich so... )

Nice stat near the end of the video, they are expecting a 85% increase of traffic on I-95 by 2035. Pretty crazy for what is already a major corridor. The sooner we do get automated cars, the better.

It would be interesting to know how many "new" players they get in a month -- and what percentage are still playing after 30 days. The game has intrigued me for a long time, but the negatives seem to outweigh the positives, especially for beginning players.

Have they figured out whether we're going to have to live in a mad max desert post-apocalyptic world, or a kevin costner waterworld?
Well, if the ice caps melt it will probably be a bit of both. Low lying areas will get covered in water and the temperatures will be significantly higher globally.

For anyone who cares, Rudy (one of my favorite movies)
You know it is almost entirely fiction, right? Yes, Rudy was at Notre Dame -- the rest of it is pretty much made up. Was entertained by watching Joe Montana talking about it (he was there at the time)...

WTF is the difference between a novel, novella, and novelette???
A couple of minutes with Google says:

A novelette is longer than a short story, but shorter than a novella. The word count is usually between 7,500 words to 17,500 words.

A novella must be able to stand on its own as a book, but the exact word count is not set in stone: 30,000 to 60,000 words may be an appropriate length for a novella in most markets.

Fatigue is an issue. When the WH is doing something no other WH would have done every day -- you get tired of being disgusted/annoyed/whatever.

I've heard German is particularly difficult to master.
Hmm, never heard that before. I tried German in HS and college and both times I couldn't get anywhere. I've always assumed my brain just wasn't wired for multiple languages.
