Re: need grammer help

I assume the person is ESL and misunderstood, not knowing what "two" meant. The username seems to imply this is a plausible explanation.

How do you keep perspective?
Posted By Yoda
Re: How do you keep perspective?

It's tough, but the key is to find joy in the act itself, whatever it is. And to measure yourself against yourself and not others, at least not all the time. IE: "I haven't written a classic novel"...

Exactly. Both are just straight innumeracy.

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

BTW, that shouldn't be taken for a suggestion that we don't have a police brutality problem. Something's definitely wrong. But I don't see the point of trying to discuss it with someone who...

I think we've established that Joao has no understanding of (or interest in) scale or percentages relative to population size, even though that's pretty much the very first thing you need to consider...

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

Punching someone in the face sparks a reaction, too. That's a pretty low bar to clear. Hell, it's what trolls do.

Maybe we should strive to spark a particular kind of reaction. Like a good,...

MoFo Fantasy Football 2019 - The Regular Season
Posted By Yoda
Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2019 - The Regular Season

Oof, Jeffrey gets hurt in the 2Q and never comes back and that, along with the weird points distribution on Philly *and* KC, probably cost me the week.

Plenty of games left, at least.

I'd probably agree, but the "full potential" thing I'm thinking of is about using both, even if the one Malick cares more about is the more overtly cinematic of the two.


Also true!

Re: Three Lefts Make a Right, and Three Rights Make a Left

What exactly are those designed to spark, discussion-wise? You seem to go back and forth from thoughtful to thoughtless (spending a lot more time on the latter). I was getting ready to respond to...

I wasn't being literal or anything. I just mean that he's clearly a lot more concerned with photography and feeling than writing or story, so it's hard not to feel that he's not really utilizing the...

Re: THE PEG (Pickem' Eliminator Gauntlet) informational thread

Can't tell if joke or not? I somehow didn't see this until now. I'm interested, for sure. NBD if we start in Week 2 or 3 even.

Sam Neill as james bond

Re: Sam Neill as james bond

I certainly think he would've been capable. He's suave, but lacks the pretty boy vibe and feels closer to what a "real" Bond would be. Would've been a nod in that direction long before Craig was cast...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball - 2019 Season

I forgot how dumb September baseball can be sometimes. Down to the wire, every bit counts, trot out aces who get knocked around, meanwhile some dude with a 5+ ERA hurls a gem.

Baseball, man.

It's the same coffee, reheated in the microwave hours later because I just got back from softball. That is, to be sure, kinda gross, but I really want a bit...

Re: Need advice

Well, the obvious solution is air conditioning of some kind. I assume that's not an option since you didn't mention it. Didn't mention fans either, though, so I can't really tell what solutions, if...

Re: What do you think of Rope (1948)?

I've always liked Rope. I like how self-contained and focused it is. I like how it's essentially a retelling of Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart. I like late-career Stewart in an interesting and nuanced...
