re: Unless It Changes, Capitalism Will Starve Humanity By 2050 - Mephistopheles
40% of the world's population relies on fish as it's main source of protein. In 2040, there basically won't be any fish left to eat the way we're going. Guinea pigs breed really quickly, maybe thats the replacement....

re: How can anyone who voted Clinton cry about Trump “collusion”? - Mephistopheles
Did she engage in a conspiracy to commit criminal acts with agents of foreign governments? Paying for the Steele dossier wasn't criminal and neither was working with friendly foreign governments as long as she didn't actually try to make policy. If she had hired someone to hack a computer or paid...

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
I still can't understand this take. If it's a totally legal personal expenditure, why make Cohen get a second mortgage? Why not just write a personal check to cohen up front and let him handle it from there? From that point on there's no way to question it without someone alleging strongly that the...

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
Oh yeah and Cohen has tapes. And so do the SDNY. But Trump doesn't know what's on them. So if Trump does end up in deposition (I don't really think he will) he's in some shite....

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
If the law were that simple attorneys wouldn't earn three figures an hour at the low end. Is having any personal utility always an affirmative defense to a charge of campaign finance fraud? My reading of the situation doesn't seem to suggest so. And for obvious reasons the law as it relates to in-ki...

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
[quote]so someone with some legal expertise explain this to me. What is the recourse to someone pleading guilty to a crime that isn't a crime? This seems like a really bad legal precedent no matter what your political leanings. [/quote] You do have legal recourse. Look up false confessions, it h...

re: Help me pick a premier league team - Mephistopheles
basically be original and don't choose Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool or Tottenham. I think that leaves the only other Premier League ever-present team as Everton, so maybe them? Unfortunately Goodison Park is a shithole with about 4,000 'restricted views' I.E. you're stuck behi...

re: England vs Belgium For the Group - FOX 2ET/1CT - Mephistopheles
I am. Southgate may have that cricket ground demeanor of slightly standoffish slightly reserved Englishness to him, but I assure you that beneath it all is the beating heart of a man so desperate to win a major trophy with England that he would literally sacrifice his family and cut off his own geni...

re: England vs Belgium For the Group - FOX 2ET/1CT - Mephistopheles
Everyone was on Panama as the Cinderella story of the tournament. I was too. I didn't get to watch most of the England match, so I heard the comments afterwards. I heard Jesse Lingard straight up say they played dirty. I thought, "wow, that's a bit harsh, a bit unguarded". frick me he wasn't w...

re: The Official Singapore Summit Thread | Trump meets Kim | 8PM CDT - Mephistopheles
And one other thing, perhaps a pro "Trump-Doctrine of diplomacy" post, although not exactly totally accepting of what he's doing... In the past leaders have used "enemies" as propaganda tools to push their own points and pay back the privileged few who paid for their campaigns. The truth is, no m...
