  1. The Expanse (Sy-Fy) is on Demand now. Haven't watched it yet (starting now), but it looks interesting and I've heard the books it's based on are good.

    Wow, Forbath is not doing well. Saints defense is playing surprisingly well though. Shut down the Panthers first three drives, the latter two with an interception and then a fumble for a td. both Panthers and Vikings having a bad week so far.

    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    Potentially huge news from Libya https://twitter.com/wheelertweets The main question will be what happens after (if) they do start working together. Will there be attempts to undermine the government from some factions? And what of links some of the members of the Islamist GNC members have to extremist organizations like Ansar Al Sharia and possibly to detentions and assassinations that occurred back when they were trying to take more power and stifle protests against them? What of the HOR and the Libyan military' possible links to the UAE and Egypt and the GNC's to Turkey and Qatar? Hopefully we won't see too much jostling of foreign powers trying to buy influence at the cost of stability in Libya like we did after the war. Also there's a lot of hostiliy between to two main bodies and their various factions, so this won't be easy even putting aside other concerns. That said, this is good news for putting up a stronger fight against ISIS in Libya. Hopefully they will focus more on getting back Sirte and getting rid of ISIS there and in the pockets they have in Benghazi. (ISIS' arrival did conveniently calm down a lot of the fighting between the two sides though, so there is that to worry about too) For a rosier look at life in Libya right now, here's a couple of pictures from Derna, where ISIS was kicked out back in July. https://twitter.com/Eljarh/status/673131592387268609

    Have they been doing that all year? For some reason I don't recall seeing it, but I'm pretty sure I watched at least one or two Thursday night games. Maybe I'm losing my memory, or maybe I just didn't notice it before, lol.

    The Official "Marvel" Thread (Movies,Comics etc)

    I liked Leo, he was probably my favorite. Although I also liked Raph later on, cause he was a bad ass and I think he kicked the crap out of the Shredder in the comics. As Marvel heroes go, I think I always preferred Spidey because of the humor, but I always had a lot of respect for Cap and thought he was pretty cool. I think Cap is more interesting when he's with other characters or villains to play off of though. For instance, I liked the back and forth between him and Hawkeye when they were in the Avengers together in the 60's.

    Cap's all into human rights and American values and stuff. A lot of people these days seem to prefer characters who are more morally ambiguous vigilantes.

    So yeah, this is getting pretty ugly. How did they score that quickly? I came out of the bathroom and saw the Panthers at the endzone.

    Panthers are doing to us what we did to the Saints last week. Looking like one of those kinds of days. Hopefully not. Although the Panthers usually start out slow and get better later, I think.
