I have this and .. it sucks.
Yeah, that sounds like it sucks.

As far as the dog goes, I believe it is pretty standard to consider any dog less than a year old as a puppy. You'll want to check on the breed to find out how big the dog will get, although at 9 months, I'd think you should be able to tell by now -- but can't hurt to double check. Biggest thing in my mind is always realizing getting a dog is not a minor task. If you don't absolutely love the idea of having a dog, you shouldn't get one.

Uh, I looked at it. 18 photos, but bats focuses a single one out of that 18 so he can feel superior and fat shame one person in a crowd of what looked like possibly hundreds. Get a fucking grip that I don't know what I am talking about.
First, be calm. Second, fine, you looked. So, you knew what he was talking about despite saying you didn't. Okay, I'll agree he was impolite by calling the woman a bitch. But I think you'd have to agree it isn't appropriate for her to get naked in the middle of group of people who have gathered to watch the eclipse. It is certainly worthy of his "WTF is wrong with people". The woman could be Kate Upton and it still isn't appropriate.

Sorry Kate, I lust after you mightily, but please keep you clothes on at eclipse gatherings.

No. I don't need to see a fat white bitch naked. WTF is wrong with people.....this is exactly what I am talking about.
No one here knows wtf you're talking about, but that's nothing new.
Uh, anyone who actually followed the "pictures you have to see" link Blue posted knows what he is talking about.

He glanced up a couple of times, I don't think he looked long enough to cause permanent damage. Though I'm sure he was seeing the image of the sun on his retina for a while afterwards...

Yes, when it is in totality, it is safe to watch it without protection.

I'd have to leave at 4am and hope traffic isn't bad, leave even earlier to plan for traffic or just drive there Sunday and stay in a hotel.
It is highly unlikely there are any available hotel rooms on Sunday within an hour of a total eclipse location.

Looking for input, do you guys like the league with dropping your worst week? I historically like the setting incase someone misses a week it doesnt blast your score. There arent really any other settings to change.

A reminder to set your BN handle to your picks profile (is a seperate setting from your profile).

There are some really good people here as far as % of wins. I am throwing around the idea of some possible prizes for BN members.
I like that it throws out a week -- anyone could miss a week. I have no problem with the results being based on 16 of 17 weeks....

Wow. Well, it will be interesting to see if Bannon does what some predicted, which is to take revenge for his being fired by attacking Trump via Breitbart. Personally, I doubt it. Even if he's unhappy about being fired, I'm sure he'll blame someone other than Trump. He's smart enough to know Trump is, in his deranged opinion, the best President he'll ever get. He can still effectively talk to Trump simply by posting things on Breitbart.

It doesn't change the fact we have a racist nationalist as a President.

Olbermann doesn't do serious as well as he does smirky. At least when you have seen as many hours of him being not-so-serious as I have. We probably should be as outraged as he seems to be, but yeah.... I don't want to have an aneurysm either.

Wait, what? Olbermann is way too serious? Did he have some kind of epiphany conversion?

Poverty plays a part, but some of it is just "family history". If you grow up in a family of white nationalists, it is what you learn.

I used to think it would slowly die away. But here we are 50 years after the Civil Rights movement and there are still people in their 20s joining these groups. If the number of these idiots is declining it is hard to tell. Although I'm sure the Southern Poverty Law Center must have statistics on it, but I'm not going to bother to look it up.

It might take some time, but they can find people who won't know about him. Some people are totally disconnected from "main stream" events, they never watch the news or read the paper. They know the news is almost exclusively bad news they can't do anything about, so why watch?

And frankly, I occasionally wish I was just like them -- ignorance is bliss. It certainly is depressing to know we have a racist white nationalist as our President. (is that redundant, racist white nationalist? probably, oh well)

For this to impress me, I'm going to need to know a lot more about what the program is doing and what information it has access to. Even just having perfect aim for attacks would give a human player a huge edge.

Brexit dominates everything and it's hard to look at any big expenditure as wise with so much uncertainty about what our economy will look like a few years. It's some measure of economic stimulus, but there are higher priorities. We haven't even started buying the land for the border controls we'll need in 19 months. It feels like we're treading water until someone senior in the government acknowledges the elephant in the room: this is a terrible idea. The undefined being negotiated by the unprepared in order to get the unspecified for the uninformed.
Was listening to a program on NPR about this and it was pretty amusing. Someone from the UK rattled off a list of some of the things which needed to be negotiated with the EU and how long each of those things themselves would in normal circumstances take to be fully negotiated. None of the time-lines were less than the time until Brexit is supposed to happen. And now ALL of them need to be completed. It can't be done in any kind of normal way. Which probably means there will be quick and dirty compromises which will likely be painful -- probably more so for the UK than the EU.

They also said something which rang true to me. Basically, it is in the EU's interest to make Brexit as hard and painful to the UK as they can. Why? Because they want to discourage other nations from doing the same thing. Which obviously is more bad news for the UK. It will be interesting to watch and see what happens. It may well come to be a defining moment in UK history one way or the other.

donald was forced to make a comment that made sense. must have been extremely painful. It only took the idiot 48 hours.
He may have read the statement, but I guarantee he didn't write it and most likely doesn't understand why he "had to" read it.

Wow. Big Ben's regular hour ringing out for four years. Deeper in the article it claims the Parliament building needs 7 billion pounds ($11 billlon) of repairs. Really? I would have thought you could build that building several times over for $11 billion....
