I caught it last week and agree with about everything you said. Very entertaining premier; I'm looking forward to seeing if they can keep it up...

re: 2 New Wonder Woman TV spots(new footage) - funnystuff
I'll agree with you on Affleck; I think he was one of the redeeming qualities. My biggest problems with BvS were with the villains (particularly doomsday), the pacing, and Superman's flat character arc. Affleck has real potential carry JL though. I'm remaining (very) cautiously optimistic...

re: Trump's tax plan is not very different from the ones put out by GOPers in the primary - funnystuff
By the same token then, is it fair to say that if Kasich had won and implemented this plan that the trumpkins here would bash it relentlessly for being tailor made solely for the benefit of the establishment?...

re: 2 New Wonder Woman TV spots(new footage) - funnystuff
I'll give you MoS and BvS (I disagree with you about them, but they did have redeeming qualities). But Suicide Squad got exactly the amount of hate it deserved. The studio rushed through of quarter-baked script and the results absolutely showed on screen. It was just bad ...

re: Why is the fed reserve raising rates when economic growth is below 1%? - funnystuff
Well that was certainly a very large part of it. But the cause of the crash simply can't be described in its entirety in less than 50 words. And it's certainly not attributable to any sole factor. A lot of shady and stupid shite happened in tandem to bring us to the economy we know today...

re: Is the media blaming first quarter GDP on winter like they did for 8 years? - funnystuff
Except it kind of does matter. Economic growth is usually reported in seasonally adjusted numbers. If you have a winter that is significantly colder than what is incorporaated into the seasonal adjustment factor, it is going drive down that winter's growth. We can have a discussion about whether ...

What's your best case scenario tomorrow? - funnystuff
Best semi-realistic scenario that is. I'd love to see 2. Malik McDowell 3a. Tyus Bower 3b. Raekwon McMillan I loved the value we got in round 1. If we can compliment that with three decent front 7 prospects tomorrow (in hopes that we can find two contributors from the group), this could be ...

I've got to shit, but the toilet paper on campus is too rough for my tender butthole. Now I have to decide whether to tough it out or hold it in until I go home at 1:00. Decisions, decisions...

re: Former CBO Director: Trump’s tax plan is built on a fairy tale - funnystuff
Can you provide a link to that excerpt? The Washington Post article seems to suggest that dynamic scoring was used, not static. Static models have grown significantly less popular, particularly since the rise of DSGE macro modeling. So I have a very difficult time believing that the CBO's primary mo...

re: China bans Muslim names - funnystuff
No one declared this debate to be over. You just flew into the thread like a bull in a china shop with the sole intent of derailing our conversation. Yes, there is a significant problem in our society when it comes to the left shutting down debate. No, that does not give you an excuse to do exact...

re: China bans Muslim names - funnystuff
I don't act like it's bad only when you do it. It pisses me off every time I see it, particularly when the discussion is on a topic that's so important. But I would reference you to point D from the very post to which you replied:[quote]D) You are fallaciously arguing that the failures of the lef...

re: China bans Muslim names - funnystuff
This is a really, really, really unproductive post A) It attempts to derail the conversation from the important one being had. B) It's incorrect on it's face as the majority of people critiquing the policy described in the OP are doing so from the right C) To the best of my recollection, no...

re: China bans Muslim names - funnystuff
Yes, I'm extremely concerned that the land of the free is being overrun by a horde of the frightened. And if this thread is any indication, that horde is perfectly willing to give up the fundamental virtues of this country that made us the greatest power the world has ever known. America is what ...

re: China bans Muslim names - funnystuff
Dude, I voted for Trump :lol: People voted for him for a large range of different reasons (friendly heads up; he got a shite load of votes!). Not everyone that voted for him wants to wipe islam off the planet, particularly if the cost is liberty. And I'm merely arguing a position. If you disagr...

re: China bans Muslim names - funnystuff
That's fair. And I'm happy to engage in a conversation on the topic because I agree that Islam does pose at least some level of threat. I think it would be hard to argue that the very nature of fundamental Islam poses no threat of radicalization and violence relative to other religions. However, ...

re: China bans Muslim names - funnystuff
Well I'm a Bayesian, so I don't believe there is much of anything that occurs at either a 100% or a 0% probability. That said, there is overwhelming evidence to dispute your position. I'll give myself a solid 99.5% confidence that your 8:1 ratio is factually incorrect. So no, I don't think we ...
