Abortions for Some, Mini American Flags for the Rest

Thanks for bringing this up, Scott. Great points. I've never understood the appeal of Originalism, when the Founding Fathers themselves amended the Constitution; how was it not obvious that they intended it to change? Go »

January 6th Hearings

Trump has spent his entire life evading consequences for his actions, other than public embarrassment I suppose, so I expect him to continue doing so until he's in his grave. Go »

Summer 2022

Thanks. I have little doubt that someone else (ahem, rhymes with bus still elm) will surpass it eventually. Go »

The Happiest Place in the Afterlife

Yeah, good points. I can imagine some superstitious and/or easily creeped-out people having a problem with knowing that human cremains are somewhere on the property. Go »

The Colbert Questionert

1. Reuben 2. I hold on to boxers far too long. 3. Spiders 4. Oranges 5. Yes. 6. Reunited with loved ones, somewhere. Go »

The MCU Project

As time goes by and we watch more TV than movies, it has become really clear to me that I messed up the schedule by not capping the number of titles per week. Go »

Scott's Pet Peeve #2726

I had not heard of the racist history of tipping in America until now, but it is profoundly unsurprising. Go »


You're certainly not the first person to think so. People have been making this complaint since the MCU's "Phase One," but everybody has a different threshold for how much is too much. Go »

Meaningless Multiverses

Well it would seem that Screen Rant believes Marvel will honor incursions Go »

Cash Rules Everything Around Me

The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 this week that there can be no limit on how much money campaigns can repay to their own politicians after the election, using donor money to settle a campaign's "debts. Go »

99 Luftballons

The tournament has begun! The first two concerts will automatically spawn shortly. Good luck! I learned a lesson from last summer: A timeout condition has been restored from earlier tournaments. Go »

Hope Springs Never

Ha! Well, I'm glad that you found it better than expected. I have less love for it now that they eliminated the aforementioned Star Wars VR experience. Go »

What's in Your Cottage?

Pear remains my go-to, as a mellower option. But I have fond memories of getting a pineapple ring on top of cottage cheese at Steak 'N Shake during my college years in central Illinois, a side dish long since removed from their menu. Go »

Oscars 2022

Yeah, I'm disappointed in both of them. If I ran the Academy, I wouldn't try to rescind Smith's award (either he earned it or he didn't; the slap can't change that), but I'd consider not inviting him back to the show for a few years to let this cool off. Go »

Scott's Pet Peeve #6470

Yes, Samir! I get that too, except it's occasionally worse since my legal name is Sean and yet I introduce myself as Scott out of habit sometimes. Go »


I think I may be the most successful serial killer in history. The best part is telling their loved ones, "We did the best we could. Go »

New Movies: Subtract a Letter

Silence of the Labs - How far will a man go to shut up his neighbor's barking dogs? Raining Day - Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington stay inside, drink cocoa, and play Scrabble. Go »

MCU Project: Where to Watch the Rare Titles

I'm not sure where the main meta discussion is, but I just wanted to apologize for not keeping up. It's been a mix of overwhelm and forgetfulness. Go »

Happy Birthday, Denise!

Thanks, I got your cake on Facebook :) Go »

The Woman in the Bar

Well the US better have a pretty good plan to stopping him. Right now Putin thinks that he is unstoppable. Go »

Winter 2022

Great news, Russ ---- I'm sure they will be inspirational and challenging! Hope for Spring --- it's been too long! Go »

You Dip Your Fries In...

One of Kelly's favorite vloggers (we never miss an episode) is a woman named Beryl who tries recipes from around the world. Go »

Justice is Heard

[hidden by request] Go »


Had to rebuild my computer yesterday, which means I lost all cookies, which means my score and streak have been reset to zero. Go »

Are Gooed Pictures Worth Any Words?

Someone asked privately about today's Mysteries goo and why it doesn't resemble a face. I created it before the above conversation, and when I reviewed all pending goos for non-faces, I only reviewed player creations and not my own goos. Go »

MCU Project: Crossovers

Hah! Yeah - more important things to worry about, my friend. Go »

2021 in Film

LOL I don't have a system, that's why I missed some films! I'll have to bother to make an IMDB account, lol. Go »

I think we've mentioned it in passing, but I couldn't find an official thread here about gay marriage. 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. It's part strategy game, part collecting game, part business game, and part rock-n-roll fantasy league. Go »

Interesting Videos.....Or Whatever

Thought I would start a thread to post interesting videos in. Here's a pretty neat video. This girl is nuts for doing this though. 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. Go »

Current Goo

Does the current goo have all the leaders stumped? Can I declare victory now? Or have we just not had enough time? 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 »

"Shall We Play a Game?"

Time for a meme game (thanks Gina). 1. Pick five of your favorite movies that many people have seen. Go »
