Holy smokes that catch on the coaster was cool. I wish they had video of him returning the phone to the person who dropped it. On a side note, did he tape his own phone to the coaster or something to get video of himself?

In a choice between wearing a condom or having Muscular Dystrophy, I'll take the former. Hopefully though, they can figure out how the good part of that gene mutation works.

Yay! NMS 2.09 has the key bind fix.
HG did a good job restoring the function

HG did a HORRIBLE job of finally fixing this. It took them how long to finally make key binds work? Non-working keybinds was reported right away in various NMS forums when Beyond was first released and they were working perfectly fine prior to the patch.

Make no mistake, I'm glad that they're constantly patching NMS but they should have implemented all of these changes (VR, Vulkan-only, the MP Nexus, QoL changes) gradually or with a lot of beta-testing rather than releasing it all at one time to hype up gaming sites and breaking so many simple things that were working just fine prior to the Beyond patch.
To me something as obvious as the broken keybind UI should never have made it past QA. But, it did. So it becomes a question of triage and I can't fault HG for addressing other issues before this one. The game was/is still playable. Bugs that trash players saves, lock them out of bases, cause freezes or crashes understandably should take priority.

It's nice they're fixing stuff. And the new Nexus hub is pretty cool.
But I'm wondering why they didn't delay the release of Beyond. At least until some of the obvious things they broke, like key bindings and base building, were solved.

Denmark Offers to Buy U.S. with the exception of its government
If Denmark’s bid for the United States is accepted, the Scandinavian nation has ambitious plans for its new acquisition. “We believe that by giving the U.S. an educational system and national health care, it could be transformed from a vast land mass into a great nation,” the spokesperson said.

The spokesman for Denmark gets off some burns that are very funny and sadly all too true.

I just finished watching The Boys season 1 last night, and I really like the show. For those that haven't heard:

It's premise is 'super heroes in real life', with human ego's and potential for corruption, mental illness, and the exploitation of these 'heroes' by a mega-corporation. It's based around a guy who wants revenge on a hero that wronged him and who gets involved with a group of guys that want all 'supes' dead, as they get in over their head and reveal a giant conspiracy.

It's funny, it's dramatic, and it's quite well done. It also ends with a serious curve-ball.
+1

The Boys was amazing, can't wait for season 2.

I don't know if I'd say amazing, but very entertaining. It still had some warts that brought it down a bit. I think the casting of Homelander was lacking, as he could sell the evil sleaze side well but not really the all-American boyscout facade - he always came across as menacing. The whole chosen-by-God thing seemed to come out of nowhere, all of a sudden we're in GWB-era religious revivals sweeping the country, but hadn't really set up that Vought pushed these guys with a religous angle (that now feels dated.) And Deep could have been an incredible character, but he started on such an irredeemable note that the tone felt off - he was sad to the point of being sympathetic, it seemed, even though he was a rapist. Had they not done the rape (just made it a misunderstanding when he took his pants off), or had they not gone after a tone that made him likeable (and made his pet cause one that's actually widely popular - being anti-Seaworld) it would have worked better.

Very worth watching, but like a 7 out of 10. Which, I suppose, is better than nearly all first seasons.

The Boys is a refreshing take on superheroes. It's also dark in a different way than Jessica Jones or Luke Cage. And it has a good cast.

I thought the actor playing Homelander was actually quite good. He certainly looked the part. Erin Moriarty is very easy on the eyes. I don't think I've seen Karl Urban as anything other than Bones McCoy. So his accent was unexpected.

Thought experiment: in the wake of two consecutive shootings (El Paso & Dayton), how many consecutive days of mass shootings that made national news would have to happen before

A) We got some strict gun control

B) The second amendment got repealed

Those are going to be separate numbers.

My guesses are...

A) 366 in the run-up to the 2024 election. (I don't think Dem's can take the Senate in 2020.)

B) Infinity.

At least get the authors name right if you're gonna burn his books.
This is starting to look like Arthur C. Clarke's "1984" more and more everyday.

Massive GoT spoilers ahead...
Bran the Useless is the new king.

Also spoilers here


I guess, but in name only. De facto Bran is just going to go raven out in a corner, he is more like furniture than a person. That leaves Tyrion. De jure the mad tyrant usurped it from Cersei, who Jon killed. Jon doesn't want the position so it falls to the next in line. That would be Cersei's only living brother - Tyrion.

That just leaves the north. Sansa and Tyrion are still married (right?) so patriarchy and all that also makes him king of the north. There, seven kingdoms once again united under one ruler.

That is the ending I saw and no one can convince me otherwise!
I think the Sansa and Tyrion marriage was annulled due to non-consumation so she could marry Ramsey Bolton.

After being legitimized, isn't Gendry the rightful male heir of Robert Baratheon?

I enjoyed it. The first part of the episode was sort of Game Over for the throne. The second part was as one CNN writer put it, a "Game of Sensible, Neatly Arranged Chairs". And then a nice bit of epilogue.

Not holding my breath...

Predictions:

Dany's gonna die, probably assassinated by Bronn, hired by Tyrion so he can finally get his castle. Jon's not gonna want the throne, but it's gonna be pushed on him anyway, he may refuse it categorically, plunging Westeros in turmoil, or Tyrion's gonna get on the throne, he may also be eaten by Drogon, "eat the help" you know.

It's the logical ending if Chekov's gun applies. But... seeing as they did a crap job with Chekov's gun since they left the books material behind, I doubt these predictions are going to be accurate.

Predictions:
Sansa, with or without Tyrion, ends up on the throne.
Daenerys dead by Jon's hand.
Jon heads north to join the Wildlings.
Drogon does whatever he wants.

Unfortunate the writing quality took such a nose dive in the last season. Setting aside the obvious, it looks like shit and smells like shit, the biggest indication are the number of people trying to fill in the blanks by offering their own take on character actions. Hopefully the last weeks episode was the worst, but I fear in their increasing haste to wrap everything up the worst has yet to come.

I thought last week's episode was the best of the season, and one of the best in quite a while. I was utterly confused at all the negativity I was seeing. There were a few issues but I thought the characters actions made sense for the most part.

I do hope the spin-offs they are working on leave out most of the magic/dragon stuff and focus on the characters. That was always the best part of early GoT - the politics, intrigue, and backstabbing involving interesting characters.

I liked episode five as well. Good spectacle and some really outstanding camera work. Storywise, whaddya gonna do? Someone will reboot this thing in 20 years and maybe they'll have at least "Winds of Winter" to draw from. Meantime, I'm still really looking forward to tonight's finale.

I guess I am the only one who actually thought the GoT episode played out pretty much like I thought it would. If there is one thing that this show has been hammering is that everybody loses in war...I feel like the continued examples of a lack of happy endings is pretty Martinesque.

I thought this episode could go one of three ways and wasn't surprised at the choice they made. Visually it was quite a treat. Peter Dinklage was particularly good. Also the way the followed one of the main characters late in the episode was very well done.

The funniest thing I saw was -Spoiler- [Cersi doing the "I think I'll just mosey on out of here" at the start of the Clegane Bowl.]

Man why the fuck can't I just marathon Chernobyl???

Fuck you, HBO!

I'd be shocked if the streaming channels stick with large dumps for marathoning. It kills too much of their buzz. With Game of Thrones, they get 8-16 weeks of people talking about the show every single Monday. Everyone is synched together, so people talk and theorize a lot.

With Netflix shows, everything drops over a weekend. One person will stream the whole thing in that weekend. Another person will take a week to get through it all. Another person a month. None of these people can really talk to each other about it, because they're not synched and there are spoilers everywhere. So they won't talk much, won't theorize, won't guess at the plot, and the buzz for the show dies extremely quickly. Netflix had some buzzworthy shows when it first hit, due to it being novel, and it has Stranger Things (even the buzz there seems to die within about 4 weeks), but hasn't really broken through with anything else. I love Bojack, and was very positively surprised by Russian Doll, but feel like they're discussed less than more traditional (and worse) shows.

To your point about buzz, The Expanse was saved by the community built from the weekly release of each new episode. It'll be curious to see if Amazon continues that trend or drops the whole new season at once.

From the providers side, HBO will get two months worth of subscription out of me with GoT instead of one. Viva a la carte!
