Hey, I don’t know how many people have used Discord, but it is an online chat services used mostly for gaming. However, you can stream apps through it as well to anyone in a the group. I’d be happy to start a group up and we could set up nights to watch documentaries or movies. […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Long-Overdue ‘Jeopardy!’ Tournament Report

 

The last time we met, I was contractually obligated to not divulge the results of shows I’d witnessed under pain and threat of retaliation from Quadra Productions… but now the world knows: I can officially say that I have both won and lost on “Jeopardy!”

When I think about it in retrospect, the whole experience was akin to an amusement park ride; the successful culmination of a 25-year long wait for an opportunity to demonstrate a peculiar sort of intellectual fortitude on one of the world’s biggest and most prestigious venues, made all the more incredible by the speed and ruthlessness with which this particular ride both begins and subsequently ends.

One of the many things I appreciate about Ricochet is how often someone mentions something that resonates, something that recalls fond memories. Of course there are more memories as the years go by, but still… In a recent conversation biking in Ireland was mentioned: I’ve been in Northern Ireland and never biked there. More

I see that the Dixie Chicks have officially changed their band name to The Chicks.

I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I think it’s as stupid and cowardly as most “woke” nonsense.

Like most happy people who can imagine life beyond politics, I am content to pursue interests both serious and trivial. Though there might yet be one or two wrong-headed people on the Internet in need of correction, one more sagacious or infuriating podcast to to hear and disseminate, there is usually a little time left […]

I considered the short-video possibilities on rtvslo.si and one was titled First Bilingual Ice Cream In Austria. Wait, what? That was really what it was about. A frozen product’s package displayed in large letters Heidelbeere and in small letters borovnice. In English, which nothing on the label was unless you count 100% Vegan, blueberries. Guess […]

Rob Long is in for Jim again Wednesday. Today, they celebrate the news that the FBI found no evidence of a hate crime in connection to a “noose” found in the garage of Bubba Wallace but that doesn’t stop Wallace and Al Sharpton from insisting something sinister happened. They also slam House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for saying the Republican police reform bill is tantamount to them getting away with the murder of George Floyd. And they discuss the primary election results showing another AOC-like Democrat headed to Congress from New York and wonder how America will react to vote counts lasting several days or even weeks come November.

Rob Long is in for Jim again today and he and Greg are tackling three crazy martinis. First, they wade into the fight over the Theodore Roosevelt statue outside New York City’s Museum of Natural History, and Rob offers a deal to those who want to tear it down. They also discuss the drama surrounding the supposed resignation of U.S. Attorney Geoffery Berman, who then said he had not resigned and would not leave, only to be fired the next day. And they weigh in on Brett Favre likening Colin Kaepernick to Pat Tillman because both gave up NFL careers for the causes they believed in.

Feathers woke up with a start. He was perched on the back of a chair by a bed. Starlight twinkled in from outside through the huge open balcony. On the bed, a man who looked very young of a sudden was lying heavily bandaged and looking very, very pale. Ordinary paleness is just lack of colour – the kid looked like his soul had been bleeding out. Which, Cthoney said, probably wasn’t all that unlikely. But, then, Cthoney was a volcano goddess and tended to know about these things. It was part of the job description, apparently.

Feathers sighed. This wasn’t typical parrot territory. How time flew. It seemed like only yesterday the Amazons were telling him off for using the waterfall to shower in while they were away. Now, all of a sudden he had friends to worry about.

The series has been out for more than a year and I’m sure others have commented competently about it. But I’ve just finished the final episode, and I want to throw in my two cents.

It’s a remarkable account. Excusing a bit of excessive but very effective gore, it’s an excellent program. I remember the incident, having lived through it and long been interested in nuclear technology, but am not particularly familiar with the political details. I am, however, familiar with the science, with the accumulation of xenon gas and the peculiar structure of the control rods that led to the catastrophe when the “scram” button was pressed. In that one particular of scientific verisimilitude, the series goes far beyond what I expected and hoped, and offers a compelling technical account of the evolving disaster.

We’re talking sports on this episode — from the Lake Placid Olympics to the famous Joe Montana-Dwight Clark pass to Fingers’ long, painful journey with the Detroit Lions. Also, Teri has many crushes (spoiler alert: Bucky Dent is mentioned), not to mention her odd collection of memorabilia, and Fingers has a hate/hate relationship with soccer.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy watching former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper blame his ethics problems on “dark money” Republicans after an independent commission found him guilty of improperly accepting gifts while in office. But will it really damage his bid for U.S. Senate? They also shake their heads as Washington Gov. Jay Inslee pretends not to know a group of radicals is claiming several square blocks in Seattle as ” an “autonomous state” that is separate from the United States. And as the cancel culture claims the TV shows “COPS” and “Live: PD,” they fire back at the unhinged push against the Nickelodeon cartoon “Paw Patrol.”

Vexations is a composition by Erik Satie. Written circa 1893, it consists of an atonal-sounding theme and two variations. The entire composition fits on one page. More

Teri remains behind the Iron Curtain that is Northern Virginia, so Fingers regales her with tales of freedom from the heartland. It looks a lot like BBQ and bourbon. Then they get all Gen Xish talking about their favorite childhood cartoons — Teri prefers the groovy 70s ones, while Fingers is more of a rad 80s guy. And what was the deal with H.R. Pufnstuf, anyway?
