    The Forthcoming Recession

    DC/Metro economy is somewhat insulated because alot of it is driven by government spending, which never decreases. It is affected for sure but it is nowhere near like what happens in other regions of the country.

    The Forthcoming Recession

    I put money into my 401k, but it seems impossible to insulate it from any stock market hits. it doesn't seem like theres any easy way to tell the fund to move the money to bonds.
  3. I think Martinez should have do it
  4. Battle of the Guerra's Junior vs Javy
  5. Its news to me that Matt Albers is still in the league. Hadn't heard that name in a long time.
  6. Turner swung at ball 4 twice, would have won the game
  7. Maybe Kenobi is a common name, like Smith. In ANH, he says he never recalled 'owning a droid' So maybe he was just 'borrowing' R2 or something. I don't think 'all the locals' knew of him, I'm pretty sure it was only Uncle Owen/Aunt Beru (and Luke, by extension) We know ~20 years pass between Ep 3 (RotS) and 4 (ANH), but Is it canon exactly how old Kenobi was at the end of Ep3 or the beginning of Ep4 ?

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    This was my whole internal thought process with the double-action ban "Wow the AR-15 is an incredibly dangerous weapon and shouldn't be available for general civilian use" "But what makes the AR-15 dangerous? Is it really the fact that it is a 1) rifle and 2) semi-automatic." "Yes. Well in that case, we should probably go ahead and say no semi-auto rifles, though bolt-action/pump-action/lever-action would be OK. " "But what about handguns? The Virginia Tech shooter was able to kill 32 with just two semi-auto pistols. " "Well maybe we should probably ban semi-auto pistols, as well" "What about revolvers then? You can fire off a double-action revolver almost nearly as quick as a semi-auto pistol. Its just two trigger pulls/bullet instead of one." "Then we should probably go ahead and ban DA revolvers." Then I considered, "So we can use two hands and manually **** the revolver very quickly after firing. Like on Gunsmoke." "Well at least then the shooter will have to use two hands, so can't have a gun in both hands. After six bullets they will have to pull out another gun or reload,, which takes 4-5 seconds with a speedloader and fair amount of training, though some highly trained and practiced people can do it very quickly, under controlled conditions. During this time, there is the potential for unarmed people to escape or even potentially rush and overpower the shooter."

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Personally I'm in favor of banning semi-autos even on handguns as well as their revolver equivalents, double action revolvers. The self defense / home defense situations where semi-auto is really necessary are incredibly rare. And you don't need it for hunting. No way in heck that would pass though. In reality, semi-auto action isn't really that less dangerous than full auto, though full auto would likely be more dangerous in some situations (crowds). The Las Vegas shooter probably could have done alot more damage with full auto, though he did have a bump stock which was nearly the same thing. On the other hand, the Virginia Tech shooter killed 32 and wounded many more with only two handguns. This is all about reducing body count though, it would also be nice if the shootings just didn't happen in the first place.
  12. It should be the gold standard for TV shows, at least dramas. Breaking Bad came close, but had some "Jump the Shark" moments in S5/S6. The Sopranos was also good, but it in retrospect there wasn't any overarching theme and it was basically a soap opera.
  13. I'm of the opposite opinion, I thought it was one of the better seasons. Yes it was a dark season, though there were of rays of hope for some of the characters. It was obvious they were going for commentary on the current political climate As for Piper Worse season for me was probably season 5. The riot plotline was drawn out way, way too long
