We were promised flying cars, instead we got sucidical robots


Have you ever heard of, or played the following games:

Cosmic Wimpout (dice game)

Illuminati (by Steven Jackson)

Traveller (a RPG)

Stellar Conquest (it is a strategy board game, but there was a play-by-mail version too)

What is up with advertisers notions of "winning" these days?

I groaned when all the commercials for back-to-school sales included the phrase, "Win back-to-school", but now they are encouraging me to "win" Halloween.

I'm as competitive as the next guy, when it is warranted, but is it necessary to "win" a holiday or non-competitive event? I do realize that their definition of winning involves buying stuff, but c'mon.

More Poorly Written Protest Signs At Fenway Park

From Conan O'Brien

Anyone see "Wind River"? Very good film. N/t

Buying a lair with subterranean volcanic vents and a shark pool. Is it worth it?

Sure some people think that volcanic vents lower the resale value and that shark maintenance costs are high, but I enjoy entertaining.

1. Take a statement or off-the-cuff comment from some Democratic elected official.

2. Twist it and take it out of context.
3. Post your outrage to social media and web forums
4. Attack Democrats who support elected Democrats to take pressure off the right wingers and Russian bots
5. Post more outrage and revel in your social media attention!
5. Repeat ad nauseum.
6. Congrats! You're a pure star! Winning!

If this is yours or one of your friends to do lists, please stop. You are not helping the cause, the party, or your favorite pure candidate. Please find something better to do with your time. You are only helping the opposition and those chaos-causing Russian bots.

Need some good news? In a little local election here in No VA,

Let's have the same turn out and send Ed "says the same thing as Trump" Gillespie packing this Fall.

I just voted. Little election to replace a school board member in my district today

Arrived at 7 and was voter 32. Retiring member is a republican on what is supposed to be a non-partisan position, but has become increasing partisan thanks to home schooling/tea party clowns trying to strip money out of the public schools. The Democratic sponsored candidate is Karen Key-Gamarra.

Wish more people saw value in the tiny unknown, un-publicized elections. They affect your live much more directly than Presidents and Senators, plus these local election is where future candidates get their start. It is important to stop certain candidates early.


Pardons a guilty felon before sentencing? Why the silence from the GOP?

1000s of ethics violations? Why the silence from the GOP?
Nepotism? Cronyism? Corruption, Possible treason? Why the silence from the GOP?

Hold the GOP accountable. Media? Do the the right thing.
