  1. Tim Miller was literally crying on stage talking about making this movie during his Cinemacon presentation. I’m at least glad it’s being made by somebody who cares.
  2. No matter how good they are, the chances of being spoiled are so low that you can reasonably subscribe for a month in the fall and catch up on them and cancel again. GoT was a near constant risk of massive spoilers at any moment, so staying up to date mattered more. It was a water cooler show.
  3. The Mariners are last place in the worst division in baseball. Sorry guys!
  4. Nobody knows, there simply isn’t enough data to say one way or the other. I personally lean towards impeachment being the worse political outcome for the Dems, but it’s just a guess.
  5. This is so obvious both with basic logic (college graduates can get all the jobs of non-college graduates, but non-college graduates can’t get all the jobs of college graduates) and every bit of data we have on lifetime earnings based on type of degree vs. no degree that I think @Man of Cultureis fully in arguing just to argue mode. Which I also understand
  6. This reminds me of one of my wife’s friends. She has four sons, the older three of which she had been vaccinating on the normal schedule until she saw some anti-vax documentary on YouTube. So starting with her fourth son, she stopped all vaccinations and even asked her three older sons to forgive her for harming them. And then it turns out her youngest is autistic. I’m never sure how to appropriately react to the situation when it has come up...
  7. You keep comparing people with degrees to other people with degrees. Nobody would disagree that there are degrees that give better job prospects than others. The issue here is comparing the job prospects of a person with no degree to a person with a “useless” degree. Who has access to better jobs, all else being equal?
  8. Even a “useless” degree gives you access to higher paying jobs than no degree even if you don’t get a job in the field of your degree. Thus, there are no useless degrees.
  9. That is irrelevant in an economy where having any college degree is a minimum requirement to a significant portion of jobs.
  10. I don’t believe anybody actually likes this kind of music.
  11. This is specific to things like student loan debt. It is also treated differently depending on the source, such as when your employer pays off part or all of you student loan that act is treat as compensation and you are on the hook for the taxes on that portion of your compensation. The Oprah situation is treated like game show winnings, which the winner does have to pay taxes on.
  12. Unless I'm mistaken, gift taxes are paid by the giver, not the recipient. He would be footing the tax bill himself.
  13. I think this goes with my feelings. They thought they needed it, now they think they’ve got a big picture to carry the quarter with Joker. Thanks for the update!
  14. Some people are saying the Night’s Watch was disbanded and there were no crows, but I’m not sure...who lowered the gate?
  15. They said the Night’s Watch will stay because they still need a place for bastards and criminals or whatever it was that was said.
  16. Astros with 10 wins in a row and a series win against the Red Sox at Fenway
