I read that most folks decide early on in the election cycle and are pretty solid one way or another by the debate. The study also found that folks almost always assume their candidate won the debate. Seems to be ringing true this morning with folks I know in both camps. Pretty much Hilary "kept it together" and Trump proved he's a "tough guy."
If there is really 16% undecided I definitely want to hear more of their opinions.
Id like to see you keep your "sad, but true" attitude if the police started targeting your neighborhood.
I'd never use the term to identify a woman as a "gamer girl" However, I do know a few who like the term and wear it like a badge of honor. In that case, I would use it only because they own it. For them it points out how they are women playing in a traditionally boy's sandbox. I don't mind that aspect as much as the youth factor. For these women being referred to as a girl denotes their youth and actually take offense to being called "Mam" by strangers. There seems to be something inherently rebellious and cool about the term for these friends of mine.
Also, in my experience, the term "gamer" to most people means video gamer, so I try to avoid using the term anyways. I've used it once or twice for myself when meeting folks then they dive into the latest vids, which i'm nearly in complete ignorance of.
The thin blue line keeps cops in uniform for better or worse. Nobody circles the wagons like police unions.
I agree with Shin, the culture is the problem. Many officers see it as police and civilians. Them vs. us. Civilians have no idea what they do and no place to tell them. Its pretty frightening and the reason why a few of my friends are getting out of LE. Pay is never part of the conversation; anecdotal but take it as you will.

Why must Muslims obey laws, but Christians get a pass because religion?

I recall a few years ago a few cases of Muslim objection in the work place. One was about handling pork products as a cashier at grocery stores, and another about providing taxi service to people with alcohol. Basically, Muslims wanted to be exempt from those things due to their religious freedom. The overwhelming response was "this is America so shut up, bag my groceries, and drive me home." Well now that some Christians have an issue with gay marriage, they dont like being told "this is America so shut up, bake my cake, and take my wedding photos."

I think folks should look to social media. You can organize boycotts and make videos to go viral. The entire medium has a lot of potential.
I hate to appeal to celebs, but its one of the most effective ways in my experience to get points across. You cant turn on a sports channel or read a sports story without hearing about Kapernick and his protest. I know it makes a lot of folks angry, but they have now been inadvertently made aware of the point. Reminds me of Kanye calling out Bush during Katrina. "An awards show aint no place for a protest!!" well i'd argue its the best place. If Kapernick decided to instead hold a town hall about racism, nobody but the folks who care to attend would talk about it.
Adventure paths; I love them, but God do they get an assload of shade thrown at them.
Hate part 1: "I don't want no long campaign, I only want an adventure module!!!"
Hate part 2: "This one encounter is badly/poorly/stupidly designed and ruins everything!!"
More to come. Feel free to add your own. :)
Its that paleo fad. It would be utter torture for me. My life revolves around grains. I make malt, then beer, and finally bread with it. Pretty much grain with every meal, except breakfast, which often includes eggs and milk so no luck there either.
Yeap, its odd that green tea is good for some things and black others. Either way you win.
For beginners I recommend finding an actual shop near your home. They should have samples and knowledgeable staff to get you going. Some folks will say try bagged tea, but I find it to generally be garbage. Take that with a grain of salt though im known among friends and family to be a "top shelf" kind of guy.
Everything can be boiled down to just simply a genre. It is the fanatics that care to discover in detail the nuances and subgenres.
My take away is that it is ok not to care about something. Not caring about something while making generalizations and tossing insults at its fans is being a Richard. Don't be a Richard.
I hope Wilson does take off as a passer too!
I tend to draft differently when I have multiple teams because I don't like having a lot of double picks. Sure if one team dominates chances are they both do, but the opposite is also true. Also, draft position changes how I draft quite a bit. I have one final draft which is an auction on Sunday. I have wanted to do an auction draft for quite some time. Ill report back on the results.
Fantasy Flight opened a game center here in the TC that serves wine and beer. You can enjoy the beverages out on the game floor. Its hardly an issue since most folks seem to enjoy in moderation. Blends in completely with the stores family vibe and you wouldn't even know the person next to you was having alcohol.
I attribute a lot of that to how the business presents itself. Its a game store first, an event center second, and a café/bar third. The drinks lean towards the premium side of things so its not like dollar old Milwaukee, lone star, or old style taps. I think FFG has demonstrated a glowing example of how to do it in 2016.
second this request.
Nope, that's just Michael Bay.

Or the wasted scenes discussing why a dude can date an underage girl legally.....Seriously WTF...why would you put that in a movie about giant robots???
Oh man I know. I remember when the industrial revolution came through. Machines and assembly lines put blacksmiths and horse ranchers out of business and tractors took away all the field hand jobs. It was scary and everything was on fire. Then when calculators turned into computers it was like Mad Max....
Trump is never held accountable for anything. Why should he start now?
