  1. SERENES POKEMON DRAFT LEAGUE: Drafting Thread

    Its doable. Umbreon is the only one left in the RU pool. Vaporeon is the only one you have to fight for in NU. And then you have 4 PU picks to pick up Lefeon, Glaceon, and Flareon. (Leafeon I'd anticipate having some competition for. I can't imagine anyone's going to be in a rush to pick up Glaceon or Flareon)

  6. SF Interviews 2.0 - Shoblongoo

    Nothing but good things. Wish we were neighbors. Live long. Die happy and surrounded by people who say "...he was a good man." Do some traveling and see as much of this big, beautiful world as I can see in one lifetime before I go. Been trying for almost a year now. Just started doing the fertility treatment. Fingers crossed. Everyone who's super into anime and knows the difference between the good ones and the bad ones keeps telling me that Bleach is hot garbage. I don't care. I like it. I could never get into One Piece or Naruto. Hated it.
  7. SF Interviews 2.0 - Shoblongoo

    I'm not allowed to go into too much detail, because there was a confidentiality agreement when we went to settlement. But I had a whistleblower case against a major pharmaceutical company. We represented a lab technician who was fired, after she reported that her lab was fudging the numbers on drug studies and submitting falsified data to the FDA. They were doing this to get more drugs approved and increase profits; ignoring the obvious public health and safety concerns of sending bad drugs to market. We had a smoking gun email where the president and the lab supervisor were talking to each other, saying they had to get rid of our client because she was "a threat to the company." That was a wild case. Rouge One. The originals are obviously classics. But of all the bad sequels and prequels, this is the only one that felt like a worthy continuation. I love that they actually explained why the Death Star had that there's one spot where if you shoot it, the whole thing blows up weakness. The Caribbean Islands. Give me a Pina Colada on the Beach, and I'm a happy man. Gorechild (Demon Axe of Khorne carried by Kharn the Betrayer; Warhammer 40k) Snorlax Nope. N/A Of all time? World of Warcraft. Anything from the original Soundtrack to Metroid Prime
  8. Has Religion Done More Good Than Bad?

    I'm always weirded out by how Islam gets singled out as the black sheep of the Abrahamic Faiths. And "judeo-christian" gets thrown around as a singular term, as though to suggest there's some unique kinship between the two religions that Islam lacks. Christians believe that The God of Abraham impregnated a Jewish virgin with his avatar and that said avatar's word is divine revelation superseding the law of the Five Books of Moses. But disbelieve that God sent an angel to give divine revelations to the Prophet Mohammed. Muslims believe that The God of Abraham sent an angel to give divine revelations to the Prophet Mohammed, and that the words and writings of Mohammed supersede the law of the Five Books of Moses. But disbelieve that God impregnated a Jewish virgin with his avatar. Jews disbelieve both of these things, believe that the Five Books of Moses have never been superseded, and further believe that because the Five Books of Moses have never been superseded the Old Covenant set forth therein is still in effect. (i.e. The Hebrews are God's chosen people, and Eretz Yisrael is their Promised Land) ...and that's literally the only difference between them...
  9. General "mass killings" thread

    The day they make teachers carry guns and make "in the event of an active shooter situation; open fire!" a job requirement for working in a public school is the day my wife quits her teaching job, and we seriously consider moving back to Taiwan. "What the fuck is wrong with your country?" was her reaction, when we were watching the news. And she saw that this was an idea being seriously advocated by lawmakers.
  10. General "mass killings" thread

    Other countries don't arm teachers. Other countries have violent, mentally ill citizens. Other countries don't have school shootings. For all the twisting and turning I've been seeing from the usual suspects to make this about something other than the obvious problem; its very clear what we're doing differently to get different results.

  13. How important is abstinence?

    ...well shit. That's unfortunate. Prophylactic allergies is a common enough problem though that I'd imagine there's quite a sizable market for accommodating products. So I'd still recommend doing a little bit of consumer research. You really shouldn't be mixing anything oil-based with latex to begin with, and there are definitely other options.

    Guyyyyyyyyyys. You had one job. I'm only sanctioning this because everyone collectively fucked up and nobody caught the mistake in time, but sure. Play on. @Nym
