    What essential element of the character changes besides 'he's black instead of white'? Ian Fleming originally didn't want Sean Connery, a Scot, playing Bond. When Craig was casted, people flipped at the idea of a blonde haired, blue eyed Bond. Bond is a heavy smoker in the novels, something that has been retconned out of existence because it doesn't fit the contemporary conception of a highly trained secret agent. Skin color doesn't change the essential core of the character in any way, shape, or form.

    The name of an American mountain has nothing to do with the worldview regarding the US's world standing. They are not linked or reflected in any way.

    Because there is no compelling reason that James Bond has to be white.

    I love how you jumped from 'Obama renamed a mountain' to 'Obama wants to weaken America's foreign strength'. Ignoring the veracity of 'Obama is anti-colonial', that leap of logic is about as dumb as dumb can get.

    I'm really curious how something with Congressional approval is opposed by Congress. By all means, please explain how that break in the space-time continuum works.

    I love how you make executive orders seem so villainous.

    I love the assertions of this post, as if the region isn't already unstable, and as if it isn't already book-ended by two nuclear powers.

    I think someone had opted to keep Brees, but I kept Wilson, so I was really only looking for a serviceable 2nd option.

    I drafted second, but it was an auction draft so it was kind of irrelevant. I kept Wilson, Lynch, and Cobb from the roster I inherited.

    *~* Official The Witcher 3 Impressions *~*
    After 4.5 hours, I beat the griffin, and am now prepared to proclaim my thoughts. But Chris, you may say, the game has been out for months! And basically all you did was an extended prologue. True, but I am also really fucking smart, so whatever I have to say about the game is incredibly important.
     
    Pros:
    - Whoa, this game is pretty! The graphics and art style are both phenomenal, and the production values are through the roof (particularly in regard to the music).
    - Everything in the game is given tremendous depth. I loved how when talking to the hunter, you learned about his homosexuality, and got a grasp as to how the game's world views that sort of thing. If that is the kind of depth given to a token alternative dialogue choice, I can't wait to see what awaits me.
    - The game does a good job of bringing newcomers up to speed. I read a little bit about the game's lore prior to starting, but I've never read the books or played another game in the series, so I'm still relatively green; regardless, the game is really smart in how it reveals the lore naturally, and it lends well to jumping in.
     
    Cons:
    - Holy shit the combat sucks! Its structure is amazing with its variety (swords, crossbow, bombs, magic, all sorts of buffs), but it feels incredibly floaty and lacks any kind of weight. It feels like you are never in full control of Geralt, and hitting enemies lacks the 'umph' that you get from games like Bloodborne. The combat isn't bad enough to deter me from playing, but after reading so many good things about it, I fail to see why people love it so much.

    New York is a brave new world when it comes to apartment hunting, so I could be wrong, but I would doubt it; landlords run a hard credit check, which is more robust than whatever you'd get from a free site. In my experience, they just want to see gross income > 2.5-3 times rent and at least verbal confirmation that your credit isn't fucked. The report and income verification will tell them the rest.

    Quizzle is good, as is Mint. Though why are you being asked to get the report? Typically that is something the landlord will do themself.
