if we're treating Virginia like a state now I call dibs on being one of her Senators

98.06% counted. PP/C's/PNV/PNC still at 175. One additional vote still necessary for the formation of a right-wing government.

I don't think that coalition would be remotely feasible in the slightest?

Why's that? PNV and PNC both have histories of backing PP governments when Aznar was President (and are basically right-wing parties), and the relations haven't changed since that time. CiU also backed Aznar, but since their descendant party is pro-Catalan independence I don't think PP can find any support there.

C's -- in addition to also being a right-wing force -- have said they'll only negotiate with PP if the leader is not Rajoy, which seems like the biggest problem to this coalition if they can get up to an actual majority with the final results.

What other option is even remotely capable of approaching government formation?

all other reasons aside, C's whole deal is being completely opposed to regional nationalism

47% in
PSOE       23.96%        94
Podomos  21.39%        69 

is it just me or is that a huge seat disparity for two parties so close together in the popular vote?

Right now the municipality of Madrid is at 10.3% and the municipality of Barcelona at 19.7%. The count in the Canaries started one hour later and there's less than 1% reported.

I see Barcelona at 46,45% reporting?

Do we know where those results are coming from? If they're representative, this looks like a major failure for Podemos.

click on the comunidades tab - Madrid is only 3.66% in but that's the only place without much reporting

also regarding the earlier discussion about the last episode I found this explanation compelling:

One other finale prediction: Iím guessing that thereís a good chance that weíll have a scene checking in with Sam?  I mean, at some point heís got to reach Oldtown, right?  Iím wondering if they saved Samís arrival in Oldtown for the finale because heís actually going to discover something pretty interesting about the White Walkers there right off the bat?  Something thatís finale-worthy, thatíll provide a good tease for next year.


I hope not, there's really no time.

It's going to be the longest episode the show's ever had...

If Cersei wildfires something I doubt it'll be anything more than the Sept of Baelor (or maybe the Red Keep, but I don't know why she would (I'm just thinking about Dany's vision in the House of the Undying here)). Earlier in the season when Bran was tripping with visions from the past/present/future, there were several flashes with visions of a dragon's shadow passing over King's Landing so I assume the city will still be intact when she finally gets there.

I think we the viewers are going to learn about Jon's true parentage (R+L=J) via Bran witnessing the rest of the Tower of Joy scene (perhaps with exposition/corroboration from Benjenhands). I don't see how Jon would definitively find out himself, though. I don't know what could be in the crypts that would reveal his parentage yet somehow remained unknown until now, and even if someone like Littlefinger knew I don't think Jon would have reason to believe it without any corroborating evidence

Actually Stannis' season five arc was one of the high points of the series imo.  On a different note, Sansa *did* know that the Vale knights were coming.  That's the whole point.

When did Sansa get a reply to the raven she sent Littlefinger??

Jon's fcking charge against the Bolton army is unbelievably dumb and actually immoral. He was taking an action that would kill his men just because he let his emotions control him. Pathetic.

I think this is entirely intentional - his resurrection took away a part of his humanity, making him far more vicious than he used to be

Writ of certiorari is denied.
We do not recognize the Kingdom of Arizona as an entity. As Citizen 1184AZ pointed out, the third constitution is still in effect, so Arizona is still a state of the republic of Atlasia.

Your honor, this is false - the third constitution is no longer in effect as of yesterday

Guys, this is a show with dragons and ice zombies, not a medical documentary.  To paraphrase MST3K's theme song, "If you're wondering how she survives multiple stab wounds to the gut and other science facts, then repeat to yourself 'it's just a show, I just really just relax.'"

Grey Worm got stabbed in the gut once and he was bedridden for multiple episodes and was crippled for the rest of the season

The show itself has demonstrated that being stabbed in the gut is Very Serious Business - but in the preview for next week's episode we see Arya literally parkouring from rooftop to rooftop. Either it wasn't her that got stabbed or Sexy Jesus Man is going to suddenly reveal he has magic stab wound healing powers

That seems bizarre why would he of all people be there.

It makes sense he would get the hell out of Westeros after he testified against Loras and all that. I have no idea why the show would bring him in now or what he'd be doing in Braavos specifically or why he'd start following Arya, but that bright blue shirt + blonde hair combo is distinct enough that it's making me wonder

Yeah the "Arya" at the end of the episode was quite clearly not her. My bet is it's Jaqen Ha'gar wearing an Arya mask in order to test the other girl if she would keep her promise to not make Arya suffer (she failed). Now he's leading her into an ambush by leaving a trail of blood

I happen to believe stirring up a little bit of controversy can be constructive - you can't have progress without a bit of chaos! Besides - every story needs a villian, no?

Besides if I was going to do something that could be fairly described as "legal terrorism", I promise you that at the very least my shenanigans would have also included the other two states you founding fathers forgot about... Wink

Bacon as the new fourth constitution has not yet taken effect, the third constitution is still in effect. This means that Arizona is still part of the union until June 6th. However if Constitutional ammendment 2 passes in both the West and South by Sunday Evening. Arizona will be added to the fourth constitution in time of implementation.

I note for the Court that Arizona is no longer part of the union. The new fourth constitution has now taken effect, and Constitutional Amendment 2 either didn't pass by Sunday evening, or it passed unlawfully using amendment procedures that were not yet in effect.

Be warned - we have a higher rate of firearms per capita - higher than the rest of y'all combined!
Be warned Snowstalker tried this kind of thing two years ago and was caught and convicted of treason.

and do you know who the prosecutor was that convicted him of that crime? Your's truly! I believe my legal experience speaks volumes for the merits of this case.
