Discuss: Odds Ducey appoints Joe Arpaio to fill McCain's seat

I would have been happy with ONE guilty verdict in the Manafort trial

I didn't think we'd get all 18. One guilty plea does two things for us: it puts Manafort in the slammer for a really long time, and it makes a guy wonder why Trump knows so many felons if he isn't one himself.

Eight is really good.

Manafort found guilty on 8 counts, mistrial declared in 10

Source: CNN

Paul Manafort was found guilty of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts, and two counts of bank fraud.

The other 10 charges were declared a mistrial.

So who's the bigger nerd?

I present to you the subject of this discussion:

Your choices in the Bigger Nerd of the Day Contest:

a) The guy who got a 6502 IC tattooed onto his shoulder


b) Me, for knowing a 6502 is a 40-pin IC without looking at the data sheet?

Does anyone know the shelf life of Bud Light?

Anheuser-Busch has come upon a fun marketing scheme: They installed "Victory Fridges" full of Bud Light in bars across Cleveland. The fridges will remain locked until the Browns win their first game, and then the contents are free to all comers.


Just for reference, the last time the Browns won a football game was December 24, 2016.

I don't think Trump will pardon Manafort

We know Trump likes people who don't get caught, which Manafort did. Trump doesn't accept failure in his associates. (Sons-in-law who overextend themselves in the real estate market are a different story.)

But more importantly, by not pardoning Manafort it sends a clear signal that he had nothing to do with all the crimes being committed in his administration, and the people who committed them are in jail where they belong.

My response to Trump's Space Force

Why is Trump trying to make the government bigger?

I realize Trump is just trying to leave his mark on the government. (Arguably Trump has already made his mark on the government, but a gallows, a sandblaster and a pressure washer full of boiling acid will get that off.) This is ridiculous. We already have what he wants: an agency for civilian uses of space, one for military uses and one for space-based spying. Trumpís bunch will simply add headcount and admin expenses and step on the service space commands and the National Reconnaissance Office.

Eric Dubay will be the first Secretary of Space Force

Among the things Eric Dubay, founder of the International Flat Earth Research Society, believes:

1. The earth is flat.
2. Antarctica is not a continent at the bottom of the world, it's a ring of ice 150 feet high surrounding the disc-shaped earth.
3. The earth is covered with an impenetrable glass dome.
4. No one has ever left the earth's atmosphere, and the government will kill anyone who reveals this. (However, the government allows Eric Dubay to remain alive so the veracity of this claim is in question.)
5. The sun and the moon are both 35 miles in diameter. The sun is 3000 miles from the surface of the flat earth, and the stars are 100 miles above that.
6. Anyone who doesn't believe every word Eric Dubay says is a government agent bent on enslaving the whole of Earth's population.


7. Eric Dubay is not on weird drugs, but anyone who is a "globetard" must be.

Considering who we've got in the White House, I can't think of anyone more appropriate.

Presidents' children can be indicted

Regardless of what Trump toady Kavanaugh thinks about the indictability of Republican presidents (as his history proves, he has no problem indicting Democratic ones), itís clear Trumpís three criminal spawn have no such immunity.

And since theyíre up to their reptilian little eyes in Russiagate, haul Ďem in.

The Masterpiece

While vacationing in Europe, Mary bought a $25 million masterpiece.

Her friend looked at the painting and told Mary, "you know you can't bring that back to the US. Trump will slap a 200-percent tariff on it. It's a nice painting, but it's not worth $75 million."

Mary knew of a conservator who can remove paintings from atop other paintings, and had a portrait of Donald Trump applied over the masterpiece. So concealed, she made her way to the airport with her treasure.

A week after returning, she got a frantic e-mail from the conservator: "I removed the painting of Trump and the $25 million masterpiece. I'm back to a painting of Trump. When should I stop?"
