  1. I'm gonna have to check out King of Kong as well. Anyone watch Atari: Game Over? It's been on either HBO or Showtime recently. It's about how when ET the video game was a massive failure Atari supposedly buried like a million unpurchased cartridges somewhere in New Mexico. Had been an urban myth for a long time apparently. I'm a little young for Atari as Nintendo was my 1st gaming system, but for some reason I really liked this.
  2. Thanks, gonna have to check this one out. I'm from the area and worked in West Philly for a while.
  3. Thanks, I figured there might be a thread, but I'm pretty sure the search feature is screwed up because it only seems to be catching threads that have been active since the update.
  4. For whatever reason I just started going on a documentary binge. I used to find them boring, but now I realize that I really enjoy them, as long as it's a subject I have interest in. This week I've watched the Bobby Fischer HBO Doc, Daft Punk Unchained, and the National Lampoons one. Also got about halfway through Tabloid last night which is pretty funny. It's about a tabloid story from the 70s when this girl kidnapped a Mormon guy she was in love with and proceeded to forcefully have sex with him over and over until he was "free from his Mormon brainwashing". The woman from the story is interviewed throughout most of it, it's pretty wild to hear the truth and then how she spun it all in her head. There's obviously a ton of great docs out there, so I wanted to get some recommendations. If you can include a very brief synopsis that would be much appreciated as well. Thanks!
  5. Yeah, that Scalia never tried to legislate from the bench. Only a liberal would ever do that That guy was basically a Republican politician who was also a Supreme Court Justice. Ideally, it wouldn't matter if a Supreme Court Justice was Liberal or Conservative, because they would look at every case objectively. But as we all know, this is impossible. The court has been conservative for quite a while now, and have handed down some big decisions. Time to bring the SCOTUS into the 21st century IMO.
  6. Agreed. They're making a show of it for now, but the GOP leaders know that trying to block for no particular reason will backfire on them in a huge way. Obama should nominate a liberal. The court desperately needs it. Not like the GOP would shy away from nominating an extreme conservative like, say, Scalia. Hopefully, thankfully, we will no longer have a court that finds a way to declare that corporations are people.
  7. Which journalist is a part of the Obama administration?
  8. If there was really a liberal media bias, we never would've invaded Iraq.
  9. I always find these comments funny. (and sad) You do know that pretty much everything has improved since Obama got into office, yes? Economy = check Stock Market = check Job market = check ACA = check Osama dead = check Kept America safe (thus far) = check I can understand disagreeing with Obama, but to act as if he's made things worse is just ridiculously false. It's as equally ridiculous to suggest HE made things better. It's not just one person in these things (good or bad) so dumb. Gee, really? The President can't press a button and make the economy better all by himself? Thanks for the lesson! Thing is, whether it's fair or not, these are the things a President is judged on. Generally #1 is the economy, #2 is security/foreign relations. #2 may be up for debate for a while, but he has #1 in the bag.

  11. If there's one thing I've learned about getting tickets for tough shows, it's NEVER give up. (at least not for a while) I've pulled tickets over 40 minutes after they went on sale for shows that "sold out instantly".
  12. As I suspected, it's making sure your team wins and not picking the candidate that matches your values. Well, if your values match up with the Democratic party, logic suggests that whoever the Dems nominate will match your values; at least moreso than the Republican nominee.
  13. Hillary voters support a women's right to choose They support gay marriage They support raising taxes on the 1% They support funding for education They support funding to combat Climate Change The support worker's unions Why on earth would those people vote for Donald Trump? He doesn't support any of those things. I mean, I guess there are a few independents out there that just vote for whatever personality they like best. But most people vote on the issues that are most important to them. Hillary and Bernie disagree on some things, but Hillary and Trump disagree on pretty much everything.
  14. LOL There isn't a single Hillary supporter on Earth that will vote for Trump over Bernie.
  15. A little over $2K Let's just say it worked out really well that I got married in August... I actually planned on it, but didn't end up in the ocean. I didn't even know they were letting people go in on Friday, a girl we met in the pool on Saturday told us about it. I had planned on it but especially on Sunday we had such a great spot, about 15 rows back Page Side so I didn't want to leave. I did take a stroll past just to check out the scene at one point. As far as the drug lords, no. Mexican All-inclusives are locked up like fortresses. The only Mexicans you would have access to were the people working there. Luckily we met some extremely awesome and generous people at the bar Friday night, basically took care of the whole weekend for the 5 of us free of charge. Seemed like there was a ton of stuff going around. ....and I get to come back for a blizzard this weekend. I wanna go back.
  16. Unfortunately home from Mexico! Was really an incredible weekend. Honestly, I couldn't ask for anything more. The ultimate dream vacation for a Phish nerd like me. If anyone has questions about the event I'd be happy to give answers.
  17. Hahaha came in to post this. You can tell he's just barely holding back his utter rage. Yes, the entire country is laughing at you. Props to those real-life trolls. Heroes, every last one of them.
  18. BOWIE opener coming Friday night! They should really do a whole Bowie set.
  19. Definitely not a 1 percenter, but it was certainly a big help that I got married in August... Went to the 1/1 show at MSG. Everyone hated the setlist, but I thought they played pretty well. And I got my slave, so I was happy. Really can't imagine what it's gonna be like in Mexico. I've been to Cancun all-inlcusives before, just never with a few thousand Phish fans Will report back next week or whenever I can function normally again!
  20. Sweet, a Phish thread!! Anyone else getting insanely excited for MEXICO next week?!?!?!?! :pickle:
  21. Who is supporting them? Lots of conservatives over at freerepublic: You looked through all of free republic and found one post supporting these guys? Your second two quotes do not support these guys, they are just making tangential quipsI see you conveniently ignored my post about the comments on They're sickening. These people think these guys are heroes standing up to Obama's tyrannical federal government. Utterly clueless.
  22. You are ignoring years of criminal activity and killings laid at the feet of the militia movement. Including the murder of police officers. While the country wets themselves over refugees they ignore the danger next door. It's real and I am not off my rocker to point it out. Perhaps those ignoring it are the ones with a rocker problem.I don't think civil rights era killings of police officers should be laid at the feet of the BLM movement, nor do I see why the actions of previous federal government protests should be laid at the feet of these people.This is a peaceful protest right now. It's certainly illegal, but so are a lot of other peaceful protests. Until that changes I don't see why it should be treated as anything different. Yes all peaceful protests include threats to kill federal law enforcement and proclamations of being willing to die at the hands of those officials to spark a civil war. Just like Gandhi these guys.They said they would defend themselves if attacked. Until that happens it's peaceful. I walk by protests every week. The crap people say is pretty outrageous. It doesn't mean they are going to follow through. It's possible it won't end peacefully, but I don't see any reason to believe that right now. Yeah, I mean just because they brought a bunch of guns and said they will use them if anyone tried to remove them from federal property shouldn't lead anyone to believe it won't end peacefully.... If they wanted to have a peaceful protest, they would've left their guns at home.
  23. Actually it's only illegal, from a firearms perspective, if they take the weapons inside the building (Source : TITLE 18 > PART I CHAPTER 44 § 930) . Otherwise the firearms themselves are of no consequence in this example. So what you're saying is that what they are doing is in fact illegal. 18 U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracySeditious conspiracyIf two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
  24. Taking over a federal building armed with a gun is most definitely illegal. There is a HUGE difference between a peaceful protest and what these guys are doing. If they wanted it to be a "peaceful" protest, they shouldn't have brought guns. And they definitely shouldn't have called for people all over the country to come join them with their guns as well. Maybe there's another way you can spin this favorably for the militia.
