  • They dropped it a little early on Amazon. Just finished Ep 1

  • JaimieT said: @Murderbear - "Obviously if you have eyeballs or have paid attention at all, it's obvious why someone would fall in love with Angela as she is an amazing badass." Nothing about why Doctor Manhattan would do anything is obvious …
  • cdrive said: Anyone else ever see Coherence?  If you liked this episode and movies like Primer, which Jim and A.Ron have mentioned multiple times, you should check out Coherence.   I saw it, and agree it’s of a piece. I’d add I’ll Follow Y…
  • JaimieT said: Can someone tell me why the fuck DM is with Angela? (I stopped watching the show and this is hard to find on reddit.) Much appreciated. I like to think that she’s his “type” because she has gone through so much unlikely trage…
  • I know this is a dead horse, but if he doesn’t know that something is going to happen in the future, then what about giving Angela a rundown of how they will have a 10 year relationship that will end in tragedy, and they will have a fight six months…
  • We’ll have to agree to disagree. When he can do self-contained-recursive-loopy-stuff like use his future information about Judd’s death by Will’s hand to cause Judd’s death by Will’s hand, then constructs against his ability to change the timeline …

  • It’s effective marketing. The GOP has been devastatingly-good at marketing for decades. Socialism is a bunch of lazy takers who want to use your hard-earned money to get free stuff for themselves and all the other bums. Socialism is Venezuela! Cub…
  • The boomers hate socialism, and especially any kind of government run healthcare, but if you touch their Medicare or Social Security they’ll run you out of office so fast you won’t even know what happened until it’s over. They do not see the irony. …
  • bizmarkiefader said: LordBy said: There are a small number of union workers who negotiated for great healthcare, which may persist after retirement, at the expense of a better wage increase. They will be used as examples in this debat…
  • bizmarkiefader said: LordBy said:  it’s ignorant to be surprised when the system optimizes over time to follow those incentives. I mean the point is Europeans are surprised when they hear about what a nightmare our system is, I …
  • Dee said: @bizmarkiefader They don’t like their health cover, they like their doctor. Republicans and moderate Democrats are either implying or outright lying that with universal healthcare people won’t be able to choose their doctor.  Th…
  • bizmarkiefader said: If anyone hasn't seen this yet, someone had people in the UK guess how much basic medical costs are in the US to show what a bad idea it would be to let US companies privatize the NHS. It is genuinely staggering how broke…
  • JaimieT said: Ah, @LordBy, I didn't quite read that closely enough the first time. Sorry I reduced it. I see what you mean. Yeah, at the end of the day they are making incredible claims. No worries. It’s the journey they’re having to make…
  • JoshuaHeter said: gguenot said: Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the question When I think of a question like “Is “Sam’ a drug dealer?” a number of things come to mind about what would count as good evidence for or against the claim …
  • Question 2 regarding the strength of evidence would also have to be weighed vs the plausibility of the claim. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence [often attributed to Sagan]. So if I claim the Pythagorean Theorem is true, you cold t…
  • I’m sick of the talking point that the Democrats are trying to overturn the election. It’s not as if those who voted for Clinton in 2016 would consider President Mike Pence, duly elected via the Electoral College on the GOP ticket, to be a Democrati…
  • I think the GOP argument is: - Fake news the whistleblower and Schiff made it all up, never happened. Expose the whistleblower!- It happened, but read the transcript, there has never been a more perfect call in the history of the world! Witch-hunt!-…
  • Also I think humans are the only species to have “milked” almonds and soy beans, which is pretty weird when you think about it.
  • Dee said: Michelle said: Plus, it’s an effective source of calcium, probably better than taking supplements. There’s some evidence that calcium supplements can increase risk of heart attacks as it can build up in arteries, so always…
  • I subscribed to 3RT on Apple, can’t find One Weird Trick there either. Is the idea for these to be ad-supported, and if so is there any partnership for BM members or opportunity to support Swizzbold separately?
  • Klobuchar is think is next I think, her or Castro
  • Preview cast and wrap-up cast will probably have to do it given the binge-dump-over-the-holiday decision at Amazon. If they’re going to do it this way, providing screeners so folks can produce content in advance would be a good move for Amazon. If…
  • tom_g said: Nothing should emphasize the importance of voting more than the situation we are in now - not who is in the Presidency, but, who controls the House.  Had 2018 not happened, this whole Ukraine thing would have been a blip on the pu…
  • Alkaid13 said: If they vote out Trump they’ll lose the Senate. The Republican base will never forgive them and the Dem base will never vote for them regardless of how they vote. You have to remember that the majority of the Republican base si…
  • Alkaid13 said: Yeah I’m like 90% sure Trump will be on the Ticket come this time next year. There’s no point in impeaching him tomorrow, let him sweat a little more and dig up some more dirt on him, hold a nice long process with copious evide…
