    Getslow replied to a thread New vs. Used (Cars) in BGP Break Room
    I've always been a used car guy, but I've always been on a pretty strict budget. Last time I bought a car I hadn't been out of law school for long. Driving a 2010 Camry now and I'd bet I'll be looking to replace it this time next year.

    Sure, she talked about it. And then in season five at the mere THOUGHT that maybe one of her dragons killed a child, she locked them all up under the city. But now it's all cool. Cause she's crazy. Or something.

    I thought the finale was just fine. Perfectly acceptable for what they had done in the preceding two seasons. The conversation between Tyrion and Jon in Tyrion's cell was pretty bad and I laughed out loud at the dragon burning the Iron Throne, but apart from that, the conclusions of the primary characters are just fine. I actually really enjoyed the thought of Jon going to live North of the wall with the Free Folk, if that's in fact what's...

    NCIS takes place in the JAGiverse? Could be a whole big thing here if it turns out all the CBS procedurals are in a shared world with a unified grand narrative. Let’s do it, CBS. There are no shows... just one big Show.

    :lol2: It would take at least two people pushing and pulling at me to get me in that position for even 6 seconds. I actually went on Wednesday for a writer's lecture by a woman who's a professor at Yale Law School that had written a book about bullying.

    Reading this progression was like re-watching every round of golf I've seen Phil Mickelson play for 20 years. How does he find ways to turn sure-fire bogeys or even doubles into par?

    Nailed it. Soccer Soldiers drew Charlotte 2-2 and then advanced on penalties. To this point, they’re the only non-professional team to advance to the third round.

    It's hard to argue with Looney Tunes when it was at its best. I can still remember almost every beat of some of the most classic ones like "What's Opera, Doc?", "Duck, Amuck" or "Rabbit Seasoning".

    Adult Swim first hit the airwaves on late-night Cartoon Network when I was in high school. Huge soft spot for a lot of those shows both old and new. The answer is probably from among some of those: Sealab 2021 Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast Venture Brothers Rick and Morty

    It sounds awesome, but I had already secured tickets to an event at the Mercantile Library across the river. I love Hofbrauhaus and I'm very jealous of anyone spending time there. Have a Dunkel for me!

    But first, Round Two tonight and tomorrow. Entire tournament is being streamed on ESPN+ for the first time. Used to have to troll the internet for janky feeds from someone's computer camera up in the stands. I think Charlotte Independence is the most likely USL Championship side that goes out. Florida Soccer Soldiers have some serious talent and they took down arguably the best team in NPSL, Miami FC, last round. This round is always good...

    University of Louisville 1) Cincinnati - Too much fun. Always was. Bring 'em back here and in basketball. 2) West Virginia - Same. But probably at a neutral site. Never want the Cards to go to Morgantown again. No excuse for that place. 3) Indiana - It's less than 100 miles as the crow flies from Cardinal Stadium to Memorial. This is a three-game set that's actually scheduled to start in 2023 with a game at Lucas Oil in Indy. 4)...

    I know it's only May, but two series against the Cubs with games against the Dodgers and Brewers in between. All playoff contenders. Really need to not get dominated over the next two weeks or I'm about ready to move on to football. Just edge in on .500 so I can pretend to be interested in one sports team playing in this gods-forsaken place I now call home.

    Too far, IMO. They made the DQ, which was the right call. Just stand by it; nobody has to be to blame.

    Emily Bazelon is speaking at the Mercantile Library in downtown Cincinnati later this week. Not something I'm hugely interested in, but figured I'd read it ahead of hearing her speak on it. Been reading her other stuff and listening to her podcast for a long time. Teaches at Yale Law School and writes on legal issues for the NY Times Magazine.

    Wendy's takes it on the strength of the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. None of the others have a single menu item that strong. McDonald's breakfast gets it closer than the others, though. Subway is DEEP in fifth place. Like, the Reds in August fifth. Subway is not good.

    Yes, because carrying out medieval justice (as brutal as it is) ain't the same as indiscriminately burning innocent women and children alive. It's fine that it's where they wanted the show to go, they could have led the story there. Given Dany's indicators of a messiah complex, there's definitely plenty of indication it was always headed this way, they just kind of fumbled the ball. It happens. They're not the first show to write themselves into...

    Agreed. His desperation was the best hint we had that Dany was about to graduate from the normal level of violence we've seen from every leader on the show at one time or another to being a maniacal butcher of innocents, surpassing even Cersei. Poetically, it's an interesting moment for Cersei. Before her death, Lady Olenna mused that what cost her was a lack of imagination; she never imagined what Cersei was capable of. That similar lack of...

    After two years of Euron’s magical fleet destroying everything in sight and one week after 10 ships mounted with Scorpions took down a dragon in three perfectly-aimed shots, how about we just have Dany take down the entire fleet and all the scorpions mounted on the city walls in about five minutes? I reject the notion that Dany’s mental instability was well-established enough to end up turning her into a genocidal maniac, but I’ll listen to...

    They set her up as the Big Bad for two full seasons, shoving the Night King to the periphery. Then not only did she go like that, they even gave her a tearful farewell. So it goes.
