So some guy hit the back of the dude's car with something and then he sped forward.  What do you fine folks make of that?

That if I felt a thump on the back of my car my reaction would be to stop not speed into the people in front of me.

Yeah. This is not like that case from a few years ago, where a guy and his family were surrounded by a biker gang while driving, and when they started to try and break in he drove over them to escape. That guy wasn't charged, and I think a few of the bikers were, including one who had his pelvis crushed.

I'm pretty indifferent to them. To me they're relics of a bygone age, and don't inspire any great feelings one way or another. It was a really long time ago. I'd just leave it up to the people in the communities themselves to vote on it.

I forgot about this one. Teddy's in their sights:


Hundreds of activists gathered at the American Museum of Natural History on Monday to take down the “racist” statue of Theodore Roosevelt and an urgent call to rename Columbus Day.


“A stark embodiment of the white supremacy that Roosevelt himself espoused and promoted,” the group explained in a statement. “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.”

I like everyone in the expedition group. But I can see Thoros dying, and the Hound becoming the new Priest for the Lord of Light. It would be a fitting evolution for him, to go from thug to warrior to Man of God; to go from someone who fears fire to someone who embraces it; to go from someone who deals death to someone who restores it.

Strawberry shortcake. The real kind, with marinated strawberrys.

Affogato, vanilla ice cream with espresso on top.

Tres leches cake.

Bartolome De Las Casa  sounds like SJW cuck

He didn't even fucking lift.

yeah it will be funny watching everyone claim history is being rewritten if they start pulling down his monuments when the story we're told about him is highly revised and edited.

I used to think "Yeah, I'm sure Chris did some messed up stuff, but that was the way the world was back then, product of his times, etc."

Then I read up on him a bit. Guy was Hannibal Lecter. Feeding babies to dogs, tossing them off of cliffs, and so on.

This quote from one of his men stayed with me:

Bartolome De Las Casas, a former slave owner who became Bishop of Chiapas, described these exploits. “Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight as no age can parallel,” he wrote. “My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature that now I tremble as I write.”

Also would say the people saying pull down the traitor statue, has a slightly better argument

I'm not disagreeing.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Holy shit is Jason Bourne (2016) boring.

I've got in on in the background while working out. Fuuuuuuuuuck is it a snoozer.

Is every movie in this fucking series the same? Is every scene and script the same, just filmed with different actors? It's an abomination.

Columbus would be targeted first before we get there.

Agreed, though he already has been, at least in NYC.

Dude did some pretty brutal shit.

anyone see Trump latest comments on it

The whole argument "Will George Washington Statue be next" 


George Washington is the founder of our country

confederates...are a treasonous army that got their ass kicked.

I have no trouble seeing the more radical groups on the Left calling for something like that. He did own slaves. I doubt it would get much traction in the mainstream.

The fact that there have been numerous false doxxings in the past makes me very skeptical that there will be a dramatic improvement in due diligence going forward.

Damn, so many of my favorite characters together in one group. It will make that storyline kick ass, but the others will be lamer by comparison.

I enjoyed seeing Arya think she could outwit Littlefinger... Only to wind up dancing on the end of his strings. Arya might be Level 100 in Sneak, but Littlefinger chose the better Perks. I know he's exactly the kind of character who's supposed to wind up dead, but I really hope it doesn't happen.

can a lot of that be solved with due dillgents

Hoping that will happen is a pipe dream. You're not dealing with the top agents of Scotland Yard, it's a bunch of random people on the Internet.

I guess this is one of those "I'd rather see 100 guilty men go free than see 1 innocent man imprisoned" kind of things, but I can't support that at all. There's nothing being done here so worthwhile that the collateral damage of possibly ruining an innocent person's reputation/career/relationships is acceptable.

Agreed. Within twenty-four hours of Charlottesville, mistaken identity doxxings had already happened. What recourse do these people have? And considering the politically charged climate we are in, how much danger are these people in?

It's a stupid thing to do.
