Hallo all, I truly hope that everyone had a good day, and that anyone who is in the path of the hurricane gets out or is safe.

It's been a mostly quiet week, and aside from the imminent destruction from Harvey, I wonder what is going down. What chaos will be unleashed under the cover of mother nature's wrath? After all, what better way to deflect than to use a natural disaster to your advantage (if you're a shiatty human being)?

Harvey has cranked itself up to a Cat 3. We need to play it sad music so it will go back to being a tropical depression.

Chet Americanguy. He's decent, as good as they come. I know he wasn't involved because he told me he wasn't.

I'm waiting to see if he pardons Arpaio before the weekend is out. I'm certain that this hurricane will be the perfect cover to do it.

Yes, Donald will pardon Arpaio.

Pardoning Arpaio would bring on a constitutional crisis
Pardoning Arpaio would bring on riots

DO EET!  I played about 12 hours in on a pirated copy when it first came out, then let it collect dust until the steam sale and had to pony up some duckets for a proper copy to play through guilt free.  Love it so far, playing vanilla no mods for first play through.  I am very well, we have the home inspection tomorrow and close on the 21st of next month which leaves us 3 weeks to move.

FishCake: Good here...are you packing up stuff for your move?


Just getting started, see above.  I am going to scrap a bunch of stuff like this computer desk, the coffee table etc and get new.  We have a bunch of shiat to throw away that never even got unpacked when we moved here 2 years ago.

real_headhoncho: ot sure yet.  Depression cycles are tricky to deal with.  But I have ponies this weekend so...


I hear ya, I am just coming off my brothers birthday cycle which was August 5th, it usually ruins the 2 weeks before and after for me no matter how much I try to focus on other things.  Stay frosty.

Filling a 3 story 3 bedroom will be rough with a 1 bedroom apartment worth of stuff, but my best friend and his wife will take the basement most likely.
The mortgage is only going to be 400 more than what we are paying right now which seems ridiculous, but my parents did help with the down payment.

Indeed, positive stress is still stress which is why I haven't mentioned it much in the threads till now but the weeks is done and I killed it today finishing 2 major projects so yay booze and shoes off!

Sounds legit, we might head over to a friends place for board game night so I might not be here for the thread.

G-Ride: Nice. Congrats.


Thanks, much appreciated.  I will end the threadjack here.  Thanks all for the well wishes etc, good to have some good news on a slow week for world news.

<semi thread jack> today's Ari-Beat segment on the Harvard published data on media coverage of Hilary vs. don the con was good, and confirmed what i saw last spring, summer and fall... and in many ways, what continues to this day. the media covered more hilary controversy than policy, and covered more don policy than controversy. yes, I know, obvious tag is obvious.

i think a strong reason was (for non-fox media) they wanted to present themselves as neutral and critical on both sides. also, i think there's some inherent bias that covering don's policy is thought of as negative, because they (and many of us) see them as such...

but something ari didn't say, and that i think is as strong or a stronger reason, is that the election was covered this way because that's how their bosses told them to cover it.

and their bosses had the goal of a weak Hilary that would 'likely' win... at least that's what the data suggested in the polling. and I noticed that when her numbers were high, more 'but her emails etc' and as she dipped below his numbers (one weekend of October), they actually lightened up (it seemed) on the bs...

but all in all, the media got what they wanted, a weakened Hil that resulted in a failed electoral college... and they still get promises of deregulation (coming to fruition) with court appointments of corporate apologists to boot... yay....

damn, as a science guy, i hate when data confirms things i hate... okay, as sci guy... i still loves me some data...

Ugh, just got an email "joke" from my brother asking recipients not to use $1, $2, $50 and $100 bills because they have former slave owners on them.

He's my brother and all and I love him, but it really is sad to see his apparent loyalty to all things "R" politically.
