  1. Net Neutrality 2017

    Any Networky people have any thought on Substratum?

    Welcome to my pit of misery, brother.

    Yeah, they probably won't have to face the 2nd seed team in the 2nd round if they come in as a lower seed.

    Seems clear Rodgers isn't full strength. Two of his picks were underthrown balls to receivers that had their man beat deep.

    They would have gone all the way to the Super Bowl. But then in the second half of the game, the Patriots would analyze the footage and pick up all of their defensive signals and march all over them.

    The thing below the video where you just put in a name is the search thingie. The thing on the right is, I guess, if you do find yourself in there you can tell someone your identity has been stolen for nefarious internet purposes.

    We seem to have reached an age in politics where they only bother lying to us out of a sense of tradition. We know they're lying. They know we know they're lying. And we both know they'll just do whatever the **** they want anyways.

    Wrong. The Wrath of Kahn and The Undiscovered Country are better than all Star Wars movies with the possible exception of The Empire Strikes Back. Rogue One was pretty decent for what it was, but ultimately not really a film with lasting appeal, I think. The Force Awakens is just a remake of A New Hope but with traditional JJ Abrams trappings. As for TNG movies... really, none of them are great. The one that people always go to is First Contact, but I'm too bothered by how untrue it is to the show/characters. Particular Captain Ahab Picard who apparently is hellbent on revenge against the Borg even though on the show he had a chance to wipe out the whole lot of the Borg and elected against it due to moral implications. Bleh, reboot movies aren't Trek movies. Never take a moment to breathe and think about things. It's all zip-zip action-action bicker-bicker punch-punch pew-pew. And of course another unimaginative remake of a prior movie in the series with traditional JJ Abrams trappings. If you like all the actiony stuff, seems like you'd be into DS9's Dominion War. I could not have done another party the night after my office christmas party.

    Shh. Let the flames fan.

    Resident libertarian here. Net Neutrality was essential. The cornerstone of the libertarian ideal is a free market controlled by the laws of supply and demand. There is no free market for Internet in this country; ISPs have natural (and government-mandated) monopolies which means there is little to no competition and thus regulation is a necessary evil to prevent the corporations from running free.

    Star Trek's better, anyways.

    I'm listening to American Pie pretending it's about The Internet.

  14. 2017 Fantasy Football

    My Fantasy team decided to fight a valiant effort at the end just to piss me off even more when I lost. I had a severely low chance of winning (maybe 4% based on projections) as I was trailing my opponent who still had Tom Brady and Stephen Gostkowski to play while I had Kenyan Drake. Drake put up enough of a fight so that I wound up losing by less than half a point.
