re: Princeton’s new ‘men’s engagement manager’ to combat aggressive masculinity on campus - SpqrTiger
Let me guess. The "men's engagement manager" will be female, too. Sounds like a recipe for success to me. ...

re: Is there any surprise at all that Valerian bombed at the box office? - SpqrTiger
Without seeing the movie, I think they would have benefitted from an earlier release in the year. By this time in the year, audiences get a little fatigued by CGI spectacles, I think. Front end of summer would have been better than the back end, I think. ...

re: Jim Henderson - SpqrTiger
Yes. They are. Those are all network guys though. They have/had huge audiences, so that title is actually a little more legitimate. I'm talking mainly about local level guys, many of whom were hired in the 70s and 80s and have just stayed on the air in one market. There are some guys who...

re: Jim Henderson - SpqrTiger
All that's required to be a "broadcasting legend" is to do the job for multiple decades. Then, eventually, people begin calling you that. Jim Henderson actually has talent, though, so I don't mind it. Sure, it takes a lot of determination to do the same damn thing over and over for 50 years. ...

re: Tennessee county reduced jail for prisoners that get a vasectomy - SpqrTiger
So 30 days is not a lot of time. And a vasectomy is an operation that carries a good bit of fear attached to it. Let's be real. And 38 inmates are on a waiting list for their vasectomies. What that tells me is that these guys probably want vasectomies regardless of the jail time deal. Th...

[quote] The only problem I have with this is how do they know that Dany is on Dragonstone? Has she been sending out ravens? The North is pretty cut off from all the others. [/quote] If you remember the conversation between Cersei and Jamie, they don't know for sure. Jamie guessed Dragons...

re: Star Wars actor John Boyega wonders why there aren't notable black characters in fantasy - SpqrTiger
These days, the altar of diversity demands the sacrifice of story and setting. All I care about is if the story works, and I can buy the setting as a viewer. Nothing irritates me more than a minority character put into place just to raise the diversity quotient for a movie. That is not real di...

[quote] Eh, I totally get her wanting to strip at least the Umbers of their lands and titles. It was Smalljon Umber who turned Rickon over to Ramsey; it'd be very hard for me not to want to kill any and all Umbers.[/quote] I thought that exchange was really good, and it buys in to last night's ov...

[quote]Hated the Ed Sheeran cameo. That was extremely distracting, and took away from the show. Outside of that it was a solid opener.[/quote] People, get over this. It's not like they cast Neil Diamond in the role. They cast... try to wrap your head around this one... a young, white, friendly-lo...

re: .25 Cent Shave Club - Get In On This, OT Gentlemen - SpqrTiger
It's not hard to shave with a safety razor. In 8 months, I nicked myself once. You won't butcher your face as long as you pay attention. I get virtually the same results as with a modern multi-blade. There is one weakness for me, though. I find safety razors don't do as well right under the nose and...

re: Game of Thrones S7E1 "Dragonstone" Maester thread, no dummies allowed - SpqrTiger
I don't get the hate for the scene with Arya and the soldiers. The scene forshadows looming inner conflict for Arya between herself and her actions. The interaction shows that the people she kills aren't as one dimensional as we and she think. That is an argument that will return to the show at ...

re: LSU online Masters - SpqrTiger
Well, the degree should not say "online" when you earn it. It's just a CM master's degree. So the real question is... what is a CM master's degree from LSU worth? ...

re: Do you go to the movies alone? - SpqrTiger
I go to the movies alone from time to time. I tell my family that I want to go to the movies. If no one wants to come with me, I go anyway. I do this to remind them that I will do things with or without them. But aside from that, I enjoy going to the movies by myself. It gives me some time away ...

re: Rationally, it is probably time for LSU to do away with a live tiger - SpqrTiger
This is a troll attempt, but hey, let's be rational in the argument FOR a live tiger on campus. Rationally, if LSU has spent close to $4 million on a tiger enclosure, would it not make sense to actually have a tiger in it? Rationally, if LSU veterinary students are exposed to as many exotic an...

re: Should the History Channel be changed to American Picker Channel? - SpqrTiger
The greatest expense in doing a historical documentary would likely come from acquiring intellectual property rights - videos, photos, access to archives. Then travel, labor, equipment, then studio time. If you figure two weeks of shooting time/two weeks post production... depending on the size ...

re: Hillary Clinton is President in an alternate universe - SpqrTiger
I just love how the libs paint Hillary Clinton as some sort of paragon of competency, brilliance, and virtue. What an infantile fantasy. There's not a politician alive who would run an office in the manner described by the writer. Politicians don't spend long hours in the office drafting legisla...

re: Should the History Channel be changed to American Picker Channel? - SpqrTiger
That's true. Cost is driving the reality tv show wave on the History Channel. Reality tv is cheap and easy to produce. There's only one problem with that excuse though. There's something cheaper to produce than reality TV: historical documentaries. Documentaries are by far the cheapest style of ...

re: What impact would have Leonardo have had as Anakin Skywalker? - SpqrTiger
The problem really wasn't the actors. I think Hayden Christensen was fine for the role. In Revenge of the Sith, he actually had a believable look. But the problem was the material, the concept, the direction. One of the issues that a lot of people don't get about Star Wars is that the movies are...
