  • The 2 episodes that Reply All just did on Compstat are really interesting.  An innovative technique that appears to have been created out of the best possible motives that became subsumed to political needs and human nature.  Also the guy who create…
  • Paul Allen, Microsoft founder and Seattle sports mogul.   Was reading his obituary and found this: "n the 1990s, Mr. Allen bought a swatch of land in the South Lake Union neighborhood to help build a Seattle version of Central Park, but the public…
  • I'm not sure doing this is going to help her.... she's going to get crap for: "The Boston Globe followed the Herald with a report that the Association of American Law Schools listed Warren as a minority law teacher each year from 1986 to 1994. In t…
  • Too soon. Kela15 said: tom_g said: Dummy said: How did that file clerk not see that scam coming? She must have rocks in her head.  That was a 'Leftovers' joke - right?? Oh!!! BOOOM! Classic!
  • I think that was supposed to be called Vinyl. CretanBull said: Every time I come on the boards I see the header for this thread and think that it says "The Ramones" and for a brief few seconds my heart is filled with joy.
  • Ugh, after all the data mining stuff practices are coming to light, even though I have serious quibbles with Apple’s hardware decisions, I’m thinking more about how to get Google out of my life rather than givin them another way to track me. 
  • If you buy the Manifest Destiny Package, you can get anyone you want forcibly removed from the table!
  • That Atlantic article I cited actually speaks to your sentiment.  The Washington Post polled and found out 9 out of 10 Native Americans aren't actually offended by the Redskins name.  Which apparently replicated a 2004 poll finding. "Among the Nat…
  • I don't think they're significantly time jumping for quite some time.  They got rid of Michael McKean, I think they're going to hold on to Rhea Seehorn and Kim as long as they can, I'm not sure how many episodes of pure unfettered Saul they really w…
  • The Costco special: ketchup, mustard, relish, sauerkraut.
  • In New York I don’t need any notice or ID. I give them my address and I counter sign next to my signature from the voter registration they have in record at the check in table. That’s what people mean by easy voting. 
  • The most popular blood draw system since the 1940s is literally called the Vacutainer system -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacutainer?wprov=sfti1. It fills by vacuum once you slide the test tube into the receptacle and the top is pierced by the nee…
  • Last person to see her alive, her bones in his fire pit, his blood and DNA in her car, the car on the property, the keys in his trailer. He’d have to be the unluckiest guy ever. I doubt the Manitowoc Sherriff’s department could do the job that well. 
  • The prosecution's theory of the crime doesn't have to be correct.
  • Requiring an ID to vote is one of the strategies people say is voter suppression. sbench2 said: This might catch me a lot of hate but I have noticed in the podcasts reminders to go out and make sure you register to vote because it can be har…
  • Dassey's lawyer was terrible because he didn't get any assurances about what the DA was going to do for Brendan before letting everybody loose on his client.  That being said, the proper move almost certainly was to throw Steve Avery under the bus a…
  • No, influential people have started saying they appreciate BCS more than Breaking Bad.  I think it would have taken something really remarkable to get out from under the constraint of being a prequel.
  • Maybe overall, but not according to one of the quoted focus group participants. " As one 40-year-old American Indian in Oklahoma said in his focus group, according to the report:It seems like everyday you wake up something has changed … Do you say …
  • Quite a surprising article in the Atlantic about political correctness.  From what I gather in the article, the focus group participants and subjects defined political correctness, and per this article they mostly seemed to define it as having to ca…
  • Yeah, from what I remember when I looked into it after the documentary, Avery’s case actually appears extremely problematic for innocence. from what I remember there were even some troubling parts of Brendan Dassey’s confession that weren’t quite as…
  • THAAAAAAAA Yankees lose!!!  THAAAAAA Yankees lose!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Well, poisoning Brock was awful. And he could have just taken the Grey Matter money and swallowed his pride instead of deciding he needed to set his family up for life on the back of the Meth trade.  Hunkulese said: DoubleA_Ron said: …
  • He was accepted at Schweikert's firm.  A healthy reaction to Fuck Chuck would have been to show how kickass Jimmy would be at Schweikert's firm, rather than proving Chuck right by being erratic as hell. Anominal said:   He's always b…
  • I’m not even sure why Lalo even bothered to tell you the truth. It was obvious he was completely blown at the parking lot. He should have been passing Mike off to someone else anyway.  R. said: James said: NervousRhino said: I …
  • They’re good at making us kinda gloss over Jimmy’s problem behavior, like they did with Walt.  That guff Jimmy fed the applicant, Esposito - clearly bunkum. Jimmy is proof of that. The copier sales people were going to give him a chance because of h…
  • Same thing he did to the copier sales people who took a chance on him despite the red flag on his resume. Which he told the shoplifter Esposito doesn’t happen. 
  • They introduced the Germans to Gus Fring and know his name.  They know Mike's real name.  They got taken out in Albuquerque and told that's where they were and that's where they had been working.  What about that is a tight ship? Hunkulese said…
  • It beats being on the boat.... Freddy said: When I'm not working on wiretaps and assets investigations I make furniture for dollhouses.
  • Yeah, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep had a post radioactive apocalypse vibe that is only faintly seen in Blade Runner 2049 and not really the original film except for a few Voigt-Kampff quesitons.  Most animals were extinct, they were selling a…
