Poor Japanese women didn't deserve that result. Hit the post twice when I was watching, just couldn't finish. I didn't even think it was a bad handball for the go-ahead PK, but only saw one replay.

The Wandering Earth

175428 I heard this movie was a monster in China, making almost a billion in theaters. Haven't seen this yet but the original novella was written by the guy who wrote the 3 Body Problem trilogy, Liu Cixin. Seems like this one follows the rest of his science fiction: Grand scale Way darker than its ...

Good popcorn movie, never took itself too seriously.

Even still, there aren't enough hours or hands or brains in the day to do what he did to prep the team at the end. Threw me a little.

He thinks the Iranians did it by mistake.

I... ok sure maybe, but I didn’t expect Trump to say that.

Yeah it’s a civil case. Need to prove by Preponderance of evidence that Jone’s actions were knowingly malicious and led to damages.

Woah CNN now saying the US says the Iranians tried to shoot down one of our drones with a missile before the tanker attack. Apparently it missed. I couldn’t find anything about this on Fox or bbc yet. E: reddit seems strangely united that this whole thing is a false flag attempt to start another ME ...

The New Books thread

The Novel “The Three Body Problem” is excellent. I had seen it mentioned a bunch but I guess I had written it off because: 1) it’s Chinese centric and written originally in that language 2) the title didn’t grab me for some reason - it sounded like a murder mystery. Don’t make either of those same m...

I finally got around to reading the 8th book that came out earlier this year. It had been sitting neglected on my to-read stack. I had thought The Expanse started to lose a little steam and wasn’t going to transition well as the time line started to lengthen and the the original characters started t...

Popeye's chicken in Toledo needs to give up

175133 Bojangles isn't bad. I wouldn't call it the best though. Chick-Fil-A is awesome. They don't have them in Cali? I haven't eaten at one in California. I figured they just didn't exist here, but a quick google map shows I'm wrong - there are some in Silicon Valley. For some reason there aren't ...

I miss it so much. When I go back to NC for a week I have to go eat at one and I look forward to the reunion more then some minor family relations.

Chick-fil-A I miss too, but it doesn’t have the historical significance to me that Bo’s does.

Spoilers! Really liked it - good robot science fiction. I think they could have done a little better with the collective intelligence side of the AI. Good job keeping the tension - I was undecided all the way to the reveal. It may have been I wanted to believe. I think I've got the implied timeline ...
