I finished "Safe" today on Netflix. First rate, and I would highly recommend it. :thumbs: Thanks. I'm a Michael Hall fan (SFU, Dexter), but his British accent sounded stilted in the previews, and poorly done accents send me across the room. Do not EVER move to the South and try to listen to anyone ...

Re: Roommate Issues, aka Why I Sometimes Dislike Humans

Drop off a pre-paid, pre-addressed mailing envelope and a "very nice" note asking for the return of the knife and vanilla, because you "just know" they "accidentally" got mixed in with their stuff when they were packing. You'll either get it/them back, or you'll be out $5 or so for the postage. Eith...

Apropos of nothing, here's one of my favourite artworks, called 'Field for the British Isles', by Antony Gormley. There are about 40,000 figures, all made by local schoolchildren and their families. It gets installed in various venues in the UK, such as galleries and country houses. I fine it very ...

Re: Gun Control Legislation

Are you saying most home invasions are committed by drug traffickers? And p.s. Your statement that "anyone and every...

Societal enforcement = law. No? What else could he mean by enforced monogamy?
The first thing that came to my mind (being Catholic and all...) was religious enforcement like shunning and excommunication.

Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

Due respect to Mueller, I'm not sure it's a good look to be opening up new lines of inquiry at this late date. It feeds Trump's narrative that this is a fishing expedition in search of anything damaging, rather than a focused investigation into specific conduct. Particularly when DOJ guidelines are...

Cohen has always fancied himself a goombah, in his case tied with the Russian mafia. He may be getting his wish. I suspect Mueller is building criminal as well as civil RICO cases against Cohen.
