    I think Office Space is a cult film and Basic Instinct's Interesting Plot is entirely overwhelmed by the internet (which itself is the most remarkable development in recent times, and not just for...

    I guess the question is "who is they"? The GOP establishment did not want Trump, they fought Trump, and they lost when GOP voters selected Trump anyways. The majority of GOP voters still back Trump,...

    Honestly, the 60s and before are too culturally alien for me to judge.
  4. Definitely the 00s and 10s, but even the 70s and...

    Definitely the 00s and 10s, but even the 70s and the 80s outpace the 90s. The 90s had the Simpsons and Seinfeld, a brief period of Grunge, and Saving Private Ryan/Pulp Fiction. Other than that,...

    Basically that, he had outsized influence in a totally different era in which the Democrats already had political responses 30 years ago, was dying 15-20 years ago, on life-support 10 years ago, and...

    Yeah, don't lump us Millennials in with those damn Zoomers. We suck, too, but at least we are our brand of suck, like thinking the 90s were actually a good time culturally when they were pure crap.

    I like George Will a lot, but....he lost. That era is done. That's what happens when you are 80 and your opinions are aligned with political consensus for almost 40 years.

    So obviously you need to pre-register predictions on polling due to the recent protests/riots.

    It looks like Biden had a 6-10 point lead heading into this.

    My range is ranges from Biden +5 to...

    He's the lawfully elected decision-maker, so that's who you gotta deal with. I mean, if you can't figure out how to work with a mental nitwit who is vulnerable to the most basic charm offensive,...

    Meh, I won't josh you around. Because we let them and we're willing to pay it.


    tbm has a good long-form answer. PBMs theoretically serve as middle-men between pharmacies and insurance...

    Yeah, this is pretty stupid, but Trump has a major problem overestimating America's relative strength and is prone to these kinds of idiocies.

    OTOH, if the WHO can't convince the world's biggest...

    Twitter is a public website, and the question is whether it qualifies as a publisher. The New York Times is not allowed to broadcast "HAMAS ATTACK TOMORROW AT NOON." Facebook and Twitter are legally...

    It's not at all clear what's going with the PPE, but that's the fault of the Trump administration for not being clear in what it's doing or why and has a made a big deal of having the governors...
  14. I don't know how you create a position where New...

    I don't know how you create a position where New York gets absolved of blame and Trump receives the lion's share. New York has one of the, if not the, worst outbreaks on the planet, and a lot of it...

    Moderately but not really. The US is several times the size of other nations so a crude case or death count isn't particularly useful. Germany and some of the Nordic nations appear to be doing well,...

    The internet in general and discussion boards in particular are pretty bad places to find rank-and-file conservatives, whether of the Evangelical or MAGA variety. A lot of them think this is...

    That's pretty much what already happens, but it's not at all clear that a waiver grant by administrative fiat cannot be rescinded by administrative fiat. Not really confident that Supreme Court case...

    Wife's hospital is now over-full and she spends the beginning hour of every shift processing hospice orders for people who are not going to make it. I think it was 2 weeks ago that her hospital was...

    My impression is that we can still operate the carrier if necessary, we just need to pack a few bodybags for the crew. That might not be an acceptable trade-off during peace time, but if you actually...

    MN winters are way worse than Chicago winters. Our Summers are muggier, but at least they are longer. And the transit is indeed a lot better!

    However....Chicago still has crap for natural...
