Blackjack's Thread of Illness and Ailments

MRIs where you have to lay on your stomach for 20+ minutes are excruciating. Both the lower back and the foot they were imaging started cramping toward the end.

MTOP: favorite three activities to do at a casino?

Video poker is my go to. Playing the odds right generally pays out for me more often than not. Will also play video blackjack, regular blackjack if I can guarantee I'm with friends and no one takes it seriously. Threw slots up for the 3rd because I can't say I've done much else. Not a huge casino kid.

Big surprise. The bright-eyed, bushy-tailed dems don't like the elders of the party and think they're moving too slow. News at 11. I'm looking forward to the millennials ascending to power. Almost everything they've tried to put through has been stopped in the Senate because Joe Manchin and Kristyn...

Just overturning precedent wherever you look. Stare decisis my assis. A state employee should have the right to pray, but they shouldn't be doing it on the public's dime. It's not like you're holding games and pausing for the Maghrib so you "have" to pray right then. Under this ruling, I could star...

The only trophy in his case is a Jennings.

I'm not saying trophies are a be all, end all, but I guess I never really saw Luongo's stats as anything more than longevity.

And for the record, I'm not sure about Alfredsson either but Luongo stood out to me more.

Alfredsson, the Sedins, and Luongo to the Hall.

What exactly did Luongo do to earn it?

I dont think you're giving the insidiousness of the religious fanaticism within the party enough credit.

I can see dodint's hesitation, but when it comes out that Watson went through 65+ therapists in, what, 2 years? Kinda makes it hard to believe this is just a money grab.

I know I said it a week or so ago, but it bears repeating:

If we didn't live in the US and saw what has been happening within the last month+, we all (lib and conservative) would be talking about how much of a **** hole the US is.

The era of "American Exceptionalism" is over.

Job and General Employment Thread

I went into the office for a (scheduled) one hour meeting on a usual work from home day. It needed to be in person because we had to visibly check printouts.

I think I spent more time driving to and from Oakland than I did in the meeting room, as we finished up in about half an hour.

That's only a small part, as the dismantling of it no longer protects those who are actually innocent, either (think coerced confessions without a lawyer present because they weren't read their rights).

I know the guns are the hot topic, but IMO the elimination of Miranda rights is an even bigger issue.

Also on the docket today, your Miranda rights don't mean ****.
