Out of the Blue

Congrats to the Avalanche on winning the Stanley Cup. This season feels like a real missed opportunity for the Rangers to steal one, but it was not meant to be. But the Rangers are a young team considered to be on the rise, and their strong showing in the playoffs this year was widely described as being ahead of schedule. Here's hoping the pundits are right and the team has a bright future. In any event, today belongs to the Avalanche and their fans. Huzzah and kudos.

Icy Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

The theatrical Blade Runner trailer was over 3 minutes long, but at at least it was horribly cut. Speechless

That's a pretty epic prank, man. Though I would expect nothing less from the alma mater of Charles Montgomery Burns.

That’s some story about the WWII Navy destroyer, from yesterday https://www.bluesnews.com/s/249398/out-of-the-blue

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Samuel_B._Roberts_(DE-413)
“During the battle, Samuel B. Roberts, which was designed for 23–24 kn (43–44 km/h; 26–28 mph), managed 28.7 kn (53.2 km/h; 33.0 mph) by raising pressure to 660 pounds per square inch (4,600 kPa) and diverting all available steam to the ship's turbines.“
The wiki will make your eyes tear up.

Speaking of Avalanche, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is pretty amazing. However, I'm a little bummed that it's not the entire game but 1/3 of it. I was hoping it would be the whole game, but I can only imagine how daunting a task it is to recreate FF7. The original was released on 4 CDs for PS1, which was nuts then. I remember thinking when I got to the part where the team decides to leave Midgar, "Wow! This game is long!" That's where the FF7 Remake ends, and FF7 Rebirth starts.

Not sure how that disputes my point about "a real missed opportunity for the Rangers to steal one."

You are talking about what "should have" happened, I was just commenting on what could have happened.


Okay, but isn't that what I am really saying too? Could have maybe should have if the Pens were not injured?

Goes both ways Blues!

The last bit of that John Oliver segment just slaps.

God: Hi. It's me, God. I know I don't often do this but I just wanted to appear in person to make one thing perfectly clear: You can't pray your way out of a drought. Frankly, I'm insulted you even asked me. You got yourself in this fucking mess, get yourself the fuck out of it. I gave you plenty of water. It's not my fault you wasted it building surfing lagoons and golf courses in the middle of a fucking desert. Utah... your capital is Salt Lake City. It's next to a salt lake. A lake of salt. Taking the fucking hint. So no, I will not be answering your prayer for rain. For the record, I've only ever, ever answered one prayer: little Timmy Pendleton wanted a Hess Truck for his birthday in 1986, and I made sure he got one. The kid just really seemed to want that truck, and you know, maybe I felt bad about killing both his parents with that tornado. I don't know. There's so many things I'd rather talk about to you than your stupid, stupid water usage, like the meaning of life, or which animal I created by mistake - guinea pigs, by the way. The point is, I want humans of all faiths to come together and act like rational fucking adults when it comes to water use. Heed my words, my children, and conserve the once bountiful gifts of rivers and lakes which I created for you on Earth. Now... fuck off.

You know you are rooting for a troubled franchise when you are envious of a team like the Rangers, who have won a single championship in the past 82 years, and that was 28 years ago. You have my sympathies.

Water is a problem in the west, but it is a man-made one. I spent some time in California and worked for people whose entire purpose was improving such. They did manage to get a desalinization plant eventually operating in Carlsbad California, but it took over 10 years of lawsuits from the environmental lobby to achieve such. More plants get refused approval mainly because the idiots running the California coastal commission are beholden to the environmental lobby. If done right, there are no environmental issues and most of these plans are drawn up to eliminate any such issues. It does not matter though, most plans still get rejected and those that actually get approved face a long series of lawsuits. The trick to making these plants very feasible is to include renewable energy construction to provide the needed power. This is extremely doable until you have to factor in the environmental lobby. So the lack of water in California at least can be placed in the laps of the nutty environmentalists because desalinization is only expensive when you have to spend so much time defending the project.

Oh and Blue you are blessed to like the Rangers. We have to suffer from the Columbus Blue Jackets whose modus operandi is to trade away any stars before they get too expensive and receive little in compensation. The rest of the league loves them as the league development team.

The water Last Week Tonight is excellent. But search the tubes for " Last Week Tonight full " for the 10 minute opener (before it gets removed for copyright), he obliterates the United States Xtreme Court.
