If it is really worth it to you, you do the search.

For all you know, it is worth it to me, but I can’t do the search because my keyboard is missing the “g” key and the oogle search engine shut down two years ago.

I think that is rather unlikely. If it were the case, you could just tell me and politely ask me to do the search.

If that happened to you I think you’d want another forum member to find out via google.

I think it especially unlikely given that you have know typed the letter g above.

What if oogle was purposefully shut down by Robert Patrick to stop people for doing searches about his balls? Would you object to having oogle shut down, if that is what Robert Patrick wanted? And yes, of course this is a hypothetical. I am just saying it is a possibility.

  1. Robert Patrick can not shut google down.

  2. google wouldn’t be the issue, it would be all the sites google is bring up the host pics his private parts.

And before you sigh, I am just saying that the above is what it is like to read what of your what-if/hypothetical/possibilities every single time.

Oh come on, my what-ifs/hypotheticals/possibilities are nowhere near as bad as what you did above.

Warbler seems to have an unhealthy obsession with Robert Patrick’s testicles.

I think Ted Cruz is going to retweet a picture of Robert Patrick’s testicles, so we’re all covered.

I’d say it was a rogue staffer.

If that is the case, maybe Cruz should be more careful who he gives access to his twitter account to.

It’s not like he gives his account to somebody. Politicians are old and don’t have time for Twitter. They let their staff handle it. I don’t think Ted Cruz had control over the hiring of this hypothetical staffer.

I am not talking about the hiring of the staffer, I am talking about giving the staffer access to his twitter account. A politician should be very careful when giving his/her username and password to things like twitter accounts.

I don’t think Ted Cruz had control of that.

This whole article is hilarious. I especially love this paragraph, which I’m still trying to wrap my head around:

As a fledgling law clerk, Cruz said he once searched for hardcore pornography using the term “cantaloupe” alongside retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor — for work, he said. The evangelical Christian divulged his bizarre work duties alongside his wife, Heidi Cruz, and their two daughters during a CNN town hall in April 2016.

what the heck possible work reason would there be to search for hardcore porn using the term “cantaloupe” and retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s name?

Taxes.

What was the problem with the ending of TFA, exactly?

The fact that it doesn’t.

To explain: Certainly TFA has an ending, more of an ending than some movies at any rate. The problem is that it doesn’t have a Star Wars ending. In every Star Wars movie up to this one, we are able to significantly jump forward in time to the next installment, since the final scenes of each Star Wars movie before TFA have been some kind of statement or resolution (just put the words ‘deal with it’ after each of these summaries):
TPM: We saved the day. Anakin will be a Jedi.
AOTC: The Clone Wars have started. Anakin and Padme are married.
ROTS: The Empire won, our heroes are in hiding, and Anakin is Vader.
ANH: The Death Star blew up, and we’re celebrating.
ESB: We’re going to find Han no matter what.
ROTJ: The Empire lost.

TFA doesn’t end with a resolution or statement. It ends with Rey looking to Luke and basically asking him to train her. We don’t know what he will do.

And just in case you think I’m reading this as a question whereas it’s understood to be a resolution of some type, let me show you the end of the novelization:

Whether motivated by her stare or by something unknown, the figure finally turned toward her and pulled back his hood.
Luke Skywalker.
His hair and beard were white, and his countenance was haunted. He did not speak, nor did she.
Remembering, Rey reached into her pack and removed his lightsaber. Taking several steps forward, she held it out to him. An offer. A plea. The galaxy’s only hope.
She wondered what would happen next.

So it’s very clearly a cliffhanger and a question, rather than a conclusion and a statement.
Rian has even had to re-film this scene in TLJ just to answer this question. At the very least this is a complete departure from every other film in this series, and for no discernible reason other than that JJ simply had no idea where to take the story.

Sounds like that’s a “you” (and other people, to be fair to you) problem rather than a movie trilogy problem, but ok.

Also ESB isn’t that much different, and ANH was conceived as a stand-alone, and prequels lol.

Agreed.

What's the Weather Like Where You Live?

Some of the numbers are already in: 113 deaths caused by both Harvey and Irma, with $290 billion is damages.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/hurricanes-harvey-irma-cost-us-economy-290-billion/story?id=49761970

Combined damage from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma could cost the U.S. economy as much as $290 billion, according to a new forecast.

Hurricane Harvey, which battered Houston with record amounts of rain and flooding last month, is estimated to be one of the costliest weather disasters in U.S. history, and Irma is expected to cause record-breaking damage as well, AccuWeather President Joel Myers said in a statement Sunday.

“We believe the damage estimate from Irma to be about $100 billion — among the costliest hurricanes of all time. This amounts to 0.5 of a percentage point of the GDP of $19 trillion,” Myers said. “We estimated that Hurricane Harvey is to be the costliest weather disaster in U.S. history, at $190 billion, or 1 full percentage point of the GDP.”

“Together, AccuWeather predicts, these two disasters amount to 1.5 of a percentage point of the GDP, which will about equal and therefore counter the natural growth of the economy for the period of mid-August through the end of the fourth quarter,” he added.

Myers said the economic costs include disruptions to businesses, increased rates of unemployment, damage to infrastructure, crop losses, property damage and higher fuel prices.

This PewDiePie guy doesn’t look good.

https://kotaku.com/indie-dev-calls-for-copyright-strikes-against-pewdiepie-1803099736

Game developer Sean Vanaman announced on social media today that Campo Santo, the studio behind the indie game Firewatch, will be filing a takedown against Felix “Pewdiepie” Kjellberg on YouTube over footage featuring their latest game, as well any future releases. This came hours after widely circulated footage showed Kjellberg say the n-word while streaming an online shooter.

“There is a bit of leeway you have to have with the internet when u wake up every day and make video games,” Vanaman wrote on Twitter. “There’s also a breaking point.”

Vanaman appeared to be reacting to the latest controversy surrounding the YouTube star, as this afternoon, a clip in which Kjellberg called a Battlegrounds player the n-word spread widely on message boards and social media. “What a f**ing n-” Kjellberg said, while killing an opponent. “Sorry, but what the f**. What a f***ing asshole.”

Campo Santo declined to comment when asked by Kotaku if Vanaman was responding directly to the video clip, but Vanaman’s tweets are pretty clear. “He’s worse than a closeted racist: he’s a propagator of despicable garbage that does real damage to the culture around this industry,” Vanaman wrote.

Previously, Kjellberg uploaded a full playthrough of Firewatch that has been viewed 5.7 million times on YouTube, and in the description for that 2016 video, he calls it “a wonderful story driven game.” If Campo Santo goes forward with its plan, the Digital Rights Millennium Act would be invoked to protect their copyright over Firewatch, meaning the video could be taken down. UPDATE 7:28 PM: the video is currently unavailable.

Kjellberg did not respond to a request for comment, but has been in the spotlight over the last year for a number of contentious reasons, including jokes about Jewish people, ironically embracing nazi references, and tussles with mainstream media. This latest flare-up is actually not the first time Kjellberg has said the n-word on his channel. Actually, on YouTube, hearing a personality with a large following say the n-word isn’t particularly out of the ordinary. The Battlegrounds community is also permissive here: players sometimes scream the n-word before matches start, and in some cases, offensive antics are considered a spectacle by viewers.

“I am sick of this child getting more and more chances to make money off of what we make,” Vanaman wrote on Twitter.

Vanaman also urged other developers to do the same, stating that he would “be reaching out to folks much larger than us to cut him off from the content that has made him a millionaire.”
