Cryptographic Cataclysm

I found confirmation. The source image was Farnese. Go »

Endgame of Thrones

I had a rocky start with Game of Thrones. Initially, I watched the first episode and wasn't all that impressed. But then, sometime during the second season, I got tired of people raving about it, so I gave it another shot, and pushed through the first few Go »

Miranda's Rights

Yes. Sexting is a perfectly common, ordinary thing that people do now. Public attitudes need to catch up. Go »


Is anyone else utterly sick of talk about the demographics of Democratic candidates this year? I don't care whether Elizabeth Warren is a woman or a man, or whether Cory Booker is black or white, or whether Joe Biden is old or young, or whether Pete Bu Go »

Our Lady of Paris

I was quite disturbed reading about it yesterday and watching clips. It's such an important building to France and to all of civilization. I know it's just a building, but its seeming loss hurt in the way that the death of a beloved public figure couldn't Go »

Tiger's Triumph

I can't help but be reminded of another comeback after many years. :-) Tiger so dominated the sport of golf that when he fell, it seemed catastrophic. His medical problems, his personal problems, Go »

What Makes a Movie?

This is awesome - the FTC has a nice reply for Spielberg: Go »


Slate just ran an editorial from a mathematician who just briefed the court about it, who somewhat alarmingly describes how badly th Go »

Star Swap

I am embarrassed to have just discovered today that Zachary Quinto and Zachary Levi are two different people. In my defense, they have some pretty similar names and resumes, and Go »

Admissions of Guilt

Looks like Scott was right. Go »

What's on the Ol' Boob Tube?

I was in a hurry and overstated that. It's mildly disappointing not to be surprised at the outcome. I still enjoy the baking and everything else. Go »

Winter 2019

Thanks all. :) I realize that this thank you is a month late in coming. I have been a member of this site for longer than any other site or community that I've associated with. Go »


Thanks, Guys! Appreciate the nice comments --- I will have to say, though, the cats certainly did their part!! Every season of this game is fun, so let's get ready! Go »

Driving Mr. Green

I haven't seen Green Book, so I can't say from my own experience. I will see it someday, regardless of the controversy. Just because the movie is problematic and clueless in its choices about race does not mean that it is entirely without merit. Go »

Harry Potter and the Definitive Ending

Also: I'm well aware that this is all easy for me to say because I'm not a particular fan of Harry Potter. The movies and theme parks were fun, but I don't follow the series closely and I have no interest in any further expansions. If it was a series that Go »

Oscars 2019

I had not noticed that diversity in Best Director, but you're right; good point. And that's good and healthy for the industry, I think. Part of the reason that Green Book flew under the radar for Best Picture had to be the lack of a correspond Go »

Hemming History

For what it's worth, I didn't have a problem with you saying that. He deserves scorn for owning slaves and for raping them. But he also deserves some degree of reverence for his contributions to modern democracy. Go »

Groundhog Day

Yeah, I can't imagine a day so "perfect" that I wouldn't eventually get tired of the repetition. But if I was not aware of the repetition, and I was enjoying the day anew each time, I can think of a number of candidates, from happy times in my youth to my Go »

ICE Blocks

Go »

All Access? Pass

Star Trek TOS and Twilght Zone - I'm in! Those happen to be two series I've gotten Lauren hooked on. Go »

Things I Do Not Understand After Trying to Eat Light at a Mexican Restaurant Tonight

I think most Americans DON'T eat 2000 calories a day, judging from the obesity epidemic in this country. :-( The waitress was not busy. Several times I saw her across the room doing what looked like idle chatting with other staff, playing with her fing Go »

Last Rights

Good! I'm not the only one who thinks that's crazy. :-) I guess the rationale is that multiple people might want the last piece, so if anyone must be deprived of it, at least we're all equally deprived of it? Go »

Shutting Down a Shutdown

[hidden by author request] Go »

The Sopranos at 20

You nailed it, Samir. What a supporting cast! Lorraine Bracco, Frank Vincent, and John Heard all shone. Go »

The Best Movies of 2018

We saw the new Mary Poppins today. It was endearing and an absolute joy. Go »

Flagged for Discussion

Televised poker I get. Anyone can play it. You don't have to be in great shape; you just need to know the rules and have a starting bankroll. Go »

Football 2018

Fun and addictive. Thanks to all the players. See you next season! Go »

Shoot to Thrill

Chris, I thought if I took you out, that you'd take me out right away, so I was hoping to lay low and watch everyone else take each other out and then pounce! Didn't work. Oh well, third is probably better than I deserved! Go »

Chocolate Caption Contest

Go »

Fall 2018

Thanks, guys, for the nice comments! I'm thrilled to have a second victory! It was a tight race to the end and, frankly, Eric, I thought the win was yours, particularly since I was current on answers and you still had six to play. Go »


Excellent! Go »

Longest Discussions

These are Tragic Comedy's all-time longest discussions.

Gay Marriage

I think we've mentioned it in passing, but I couldn't find an official thread here about gay marriage. There are a lot of changes going on right now in legislature. Go »

Yankees Win! Theeeeee Yankees Win!

Read the subject. That is all. Go »

Rock Block

I'm pleased to introduce the newest game on, Rock Block. Go »

Interesting Videos.....Or Whatever

Thought I would start a thread to post interesting videos in. Here's a pretty neat video. Go »

Election Day

Let's begin. Go »


It's been three weeks since Rock Block launched, and the early rush of mass participation has given way to a few regulars playing constantly. To a large degree that's normal and expected, but to the degree it doesn't have to be that way, I'd like to do so Go »

Current Goo

Does the current goo have all the leaders stumped? Can I declare victory now? Go »

Goo: Towers

Recently, I've been talking about taking the goo game in a different direction. That plan goes into effect tonight, with the start of Round XLI in five hours. Go »

Round XXX Tournament

We will begin in just five days. Here is the line-up for Friday, July 27th: Mike Eberhart vs. Go »

"Shall We Play a Game?"

Time for a meme game (thanks Gina). 1. Go »
