Why can't a city/county just open up competition and let the market build it out, tax free?

Uh because the psychopaths running those companies only care about the bottom line and will always cut as man corners as possible to provide the worst/cheapest service in order to maximize profits.

Why can't communities be allowed to wire themselves without a government monopoly or corporate monopoly?

Uh because those corporations effectively run the government.

I'm sure a market-based solution can be reached since Internet is in incredibly high demand now. The market can provide this tax free and much more efficiently.

Uh no it cannot. If that were the case it would have happened by now. Yet history shows us time after time that your little fantasy world of where real capitalism thrives in a real free market place is simply that, a fantasy. These things need to be regulated or the robber barons will just fuck everyone over because they can. Then sooner or later the masses revolt and you have bloody revolution on your hands all because of a lack of regulation to reign in the greedy psychopaths and sociopaths at the top.

@ Cutter. When you see a moon of that color, it's usually caused by pollution from China.


No, that's what I'm saying. In all my 49 years on the planet I've never seen anything like it. It fairly blew my mind. A few centuries ago it probably would have set off a Doomsday panic - especially with the eclipse following a few days later. My description can't do it justice. The moon was just huge and really looked like a huge blood orange with a black stripe across it. Would have given a lot to get a shot of it but I was out in the country driving home and by the time I got back it had risen and the color had faded. Here's a snap of a blood moon that it was close to except it was effing ginormous and really close and had the black line on it from the cloud. Actually it'd make a really sweet tat.

Tablets are a godsend for those of us getting elderly who like to read. The print in so many books is simply too small and difficult to read easily anymore. With a tablet just hit a button to increase font size and Bob's yer Uncle! I admit I was a bit curmudgeonly about using a tablet to read at first but I'm totes loving it now.

God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un, evangelical adviser says

Yeah, because that's what a sociopath like The Donald needs to hear. Of course The Donald doesn't believe in God...because he is God. Still those evangelicals need to STFU or their churches need to be taxed for the political institutions they really are. And you can bet you won't see any of those assholes sending their kids off to die, but they have zero problem sending everyone elses.

Hrm, I wonder what kind of work it would take to convert my shed into a bomb shelter. Fallout - the real life experience coming to a city near you soon!

Anyone catch the moon last night? When it first appeared - here at any rate - it was this crazy blood orange color. I've never seen anything like it before. And there was a thin cloud moving across it on its lower third so it looked like a black stripe running across it. It actually looked pretty ominous - and really effing sweet too. Wish I woulda had a could camera to take a few snaps of it. I'm guessing it was lit up like that because of the approaching eclipse.

And Blue, to get Mrs. Blue on-board with the bonfire idea you just have to be a bit sneaky about it. Get her a bit drunk and play some music in the background relating to fire like The Doors - Light My Fire, Arthur Brown - Fire, The Pointer Sisters - Fire, et al. Just search for songs about fire, there's loads of them. That way the seed will take root and in a few days time she'll say, 'You know what? A bonfire would be a really good idea!'

Or maybe store your ammo in a more secure location that can't be destroyed by a commercial drone.

That's a huge effort and expenditure that up until now was completely unnecessary. I'm sure that'll change moving forward but for now it's a common sense approach.

Serves him right for using services like Uber, AirBnB, et al. All this sharing economy bullshit is just making it worse for everyone else and speeding up the race to the bottom. Point in fact, studies are coming in from all over now showing AirBnB is directly responsible for increased housing and rental costs. They're acting as hotels without any of the costs or responsibilities and that needs to end. So I have zero sympathy for selfish pricks like this who are making it harder for everyone else.

AirBnB raises rents

Looks like it might be ok. The world itself doesn't look very alien however.

Nothing against your comment, but just what would an alien looking world look like in your mind?

Cause none of us really know. and if a flourished world was discovered. I dont think the look of it would be to far off looking from Earths.

NMS does a better job of it. It defeats the entire purpose of using the world "alien" when it doesn't look at all alien.

My bad. Edited the post. GoT is literally the only show I watch live. I found that avoiding spoilers is practically impossible if you don't.

Thanks. I generally binge watch a season at the end instead as I hate waiting week in and week out to find out what happened at the same Bat-time on the same Bat-channel!

I also like their recent use of portals for travel.

Seems to me that they've just stopped showing us months of travel time between scenes. At the end of last episode they had just raided Highgarden. By the time the attack happens at the end of this episode they've traveled all the way back to King's Landing and unloaded all the gold.

Highgarden is farther away from King's Landing than Dragonstone, giving an army on horseback plenty of time to catch up with the slow moving loot train.

Fucking spoilers, man! Use secret text. Some of us aren't watching this yet.

I got a little firepit this year and am going to be burning up all my scrap this fall. My cousin does that at his farm - the bonfire that is. End of year, whatever scrap is left in the shop goes to the bonfire. It's pretty sweet.

Hope you guys get your pad in PA soon, Blue. Not long now before your Eagles take the field.

Uh no, Mac is right, they need to go fuck themselves. This game just completely fell off the radar for me. Give an inch they take a mile. This is how it starts. Reward them with sales for this bullshit and next time it'll be even worse. Then it will be gated content and micros up the ass for everything. Best thing to do is nip this in the bud by boycotting the game.
