  • 808 - How It’s Gotta Be (Midseason Finale)

    Really seems like Gimple is playing Chandler wrong, although I think there is a strong chance that they are somehow going to "heal" him (or it's not a zombie bite at all or something)

    Cold open S08E09

    Rick: "Carl ..."
    Carl: "Dad ..."
    Rick: "Carl, I ...."
    Carl: "Uh..."
    Rick: [gets tears in his eyes]
    Carl: "Hey Dad, you know what? ...."
    Rick: [sobbing]: "What is it, Carl?"
    Carl: [smiling]: It's not a zombie bite, Dad. Enid and I were fooling around, and uh .... she got a little freaky"
    Rick: "Goddammit, Carl!"

    The cold opening sintar music absolutely was a cover of the White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army. 
    Agreed, I was humming along and noticed almost right away. @Jim I’m sure you’ll pick it up on the rewatch. 

    "I'm sure I would have recognized Seven Nation Army. But this didn't sound like anything to me"

    Confirmed. @Jim is a robot.

    Rewatching season 1 and episode 4 makes so much sense now.

    YES. I only just realized the scene with Angela in her wedding dress, where she says "You're not Elliot, your the M..." is both in S01E04 and in S04E13. She also says "you were born only a month ago" in that same (S01E04) episode, but we all assumed he was just tripping from the drugs.
  • Do you wear a watch these days?

    Never owned a nice watch, but when I turned 40 a few years ago... I felt it was time.
    Defakto is a small German watchmaker that manufactures minimal design watches.

  • The Mandalorian Chapter 5: The Gunslinger SPOILERS

    I think both of these points are true, but still think that they're weak and against character.  Basically, nothing can stop Baby Yoda from sticking to Mando's side...except (suddenly) nap-time.

    Can you really expect consistent behaviour from a baby/toddler?

    I dig your point about Mando, though. Seemed a bit weird that he just took off without anticipating what would happen when the mechanic inevitably discovered baby yoda.

    He has been behaving weirdly every episode though. Why does he never close the door and lock up his spaceship? He's got all this technology, but everyone just walks in and out of his ship whenever they feel like.

    But one thing ARon claims is that low level, non violent drug offenders are sent to jail for long periods of time. This is a complete fallacy. Generally, police and prosecutors do not care or want to deal with low level drug offenses. Besides being a waste of time, it also takes up too much room in the jails and costs hours of pointless paperwork. On top of that, it wouldn’t be the police putting these people in jail, it would be the judicial system. Anyway, I felt that this needed rectified.

    Two facts:

    1. While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world's population, it houses around 22 percent of the world's prisoners.
    2. About 1 of 10 prisoners in the US is in jail for a minor drug offense (e.g. possession of drugs, or minor trafficking of marijuana)

    Based on these numbers, it seems clear that the US judicial system is really eager to put people in jail for minor drug offenses. So how is what ARon said a fallacy?
