Darrelle Revis b/c God hates the Jets

At least you have a ring. Try crying to a Bills, Vikings, or Browns fan.

So, without Romney in the race, how do Mormons vote? Jeb? Surely not Huckabee or Santorum.

Russell Wilson doesn't need an MVP performance; he just needs to play like he usually does and not like when Kearse deflects two balls for interceptions.

Finally got around to watching The Grand Budapest Hotel, as everyone seems to love it, and it seemed more palatable than Boyhood or the generic biopic crap that got nominated for Best Picture.

TGBH was my first Wes Anderson movie. His movies have never particularly interested me, though I've thought about watching Moonrise Kingdom. I have very mixed feelings about TGBH: while I found the characters charming and endearing and the story interesting enough if a bit bizarre, Anderson's cinematograhic style was incredibly oppressive. With every character always moving at right angles to the camera, everything symmetric, and the environment flat, I felt like everyone was a puppet being forced through some overbearing maze. I think that's kind of the point, what with his "dollhouse" style and all, but I just couldn't stand it. I felt claustrophobic and confined, just praying that someone would do something different or we'd get some other camera angle, but there was no relief to be had. Between that and the ridiculously bad effects at times (e.g. the ski chase), I can't say that it was an experience I'd want to have very many times.

Still going with Seattle, obviously.

Seattle repeats. It's already the longest the NFL has gone without repeat champions in the Super Bowl era. I think New England beats Indy; I also think the Seahawks would have an easier time with NE than with IND.

2. Seattle Seahawks
5. Arizona Cardinals

You need to pay attention to standings and schedules, my friend.

If Seattle beats Arizona next week and/or they end up with the same record, Seattle wins the division.

But Seattle has to go to Arizona to win that game. Not saying it's impossible to do, but playing on the road is especially difficult when there's playoff implications.

So, uh, yeah.

A number of theaters that had The Interview pulled decided to play Team America instead. However, Paramount has now banned them from doing so.

China has an incredible amount of natural beauty. I wouldn't mind visiting Jiuzhaigao and the rest of Sichuan, the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon, parts of Tibet, Xinjiang (Tianshan Mountains, Dzungarian Basin, Taklamakan Desert, Urumqi), parts of Manchuria including Lake Khanka, etc.

18  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: The Onion has a new clickbait site, and of course it's genius on: December 16, 2014, 05:42:07 pm
Yeah, that article isn't remotely SJW in the contemporary sense. SJWs don't care about class, and they certainly don't care about the plight of white men (like person #2 in the article) no matter their social circumstances (unless they're gay or some other "minority" and sometimes not even then).

It is very "social justice-y" in the slightly older sense of the word, though.

20  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: What do you think the government should provide? on: December 15, 2014, 03:40:49 pm
Generally only what the market in some way fails to provide (or rather, what it underprovides): non-rival and/or non-excludable goods, those with un-internalized positive externalities, natural monopolies (case-by-case), goods in otherwise incomplete markets, goods to correct for information failures, etc.
