It's now football season and college bands are playing music from Game of Thrones when their team goes on defense. Finally, move over Star wars Empire music. Well, at least my alma mater doesn't play any of those but will play Bad Bad Leroy Brown.

I've checked out some of those spoiler 'prediction' sites but I will not post what I read.

I can't wait for next season. I hope they do get a budget increase because I'd love a long battle scene with a lot of tactics. And I would love to see more of those wolves.

What the fuck is there to watch on TV now? Well, football, of course. But I'd love to have a great series to watch until...

I think everyone wants more of the wolves. It's funny that the wolves are actually more expensive than the dragons.

Ghost, for example is an "actor" wolf named Quigley from Calgary. Because of the permits involved in transporting animals overseas it was actually cheaper to fly the cast to Canada to film those scenes. It just becomes way too expensive to have the wolves. If you see the deleted scenes with the green screen wolf, then you can see how bad that can look.

The new season starts filming in October. I'm in no hurry to see the final season. I'll be happy to wait a bit and get the best possible outcome,

Results are in. The awards actually had the second worst ratings of all time for an Emmys broadcast. Just one more nail in the coffin for network TV.

Saturday Night Live was the big winner (most of which was undeserved). The anti-Trump band wagon has allowed Alec Baldwin to win the best supporting actor award for doing the same comical skit once or twice ever three weeks times while actual supporting actors contribute week after week.

The surprise of the night was "Big Little Lies." It was a good miniseries with an outstanding cast. (Even the kids in the show were amazing.). It certainly wasn't better that "The Night Of" or "Fargo" though.

Did you agree with the decisions? Who do you think got snubbed?

Topic should women be allowed to be topless in public?
Posted 20 Sep 2017 16:40

In BC, where I live, it is completely legal for women to go topless. Despite this fact, police still try and tell women to "cover up."

In the city that I used to work in, there was a well known woman that used to ride around topless. She won numerous lawsuits and was well known by the entire community but still was pulled over by police because they claimed that she was causing accidents because drivers were staring at her.

It's kind of like drinking in public. Some people just do it and it goes unnoticed. But then there are some people that try to go out of their way to make a spectacle of it.

In this day and age, if anyone is offended by a nipple...then fuck off. Run along home, do five hail Marys and use your tears as lubricant as you jerk off and cry.

If you are still offended by breasts in this day and age then I suggest that you crawl back into your holes.

To all the people that think that Mixon's response was justified..... I would assume that you probably need a little more life experience before responding. I would be amazed if you have even talked to to a living female, let alone have ever been in a fight. If you think that response was apt, then you should probably get punched in the face by an adult human. I think your views might change after you put down the video games and step into the real world.

By they way..., isn't it funny how the same people that defend neo-nazis marching in Charlottesville throw a hissy fit when a football player quietly kneels in protest to actual discrimination?

Now even though I title'd it as such, this isn't an NFL issue. The NFL has nothing to do with teams drafting or signing players. This was an indictment of the american public who see a guy breaking a girl's face as less of an issue than a guy quietly kneeling during the national anthem.

Mixon was convicted. He missed an entire year of playing in college and most NFL teams passed on taking him. This was actually a big issue. I'm balls deep in NFL football because I love it like I love most most sports. But I can still see the inherent hypocrisy. You can beat women, rape women, kill dogs....

but just don't kneel during the national anthem.....

Give me a fucking break. You want to put your hand on your chest? I'll put my hand on my dick if i want to Because that is what you claim your country is all about.

Is anyone surprised to learn that "numerous" women have hit DamonX in the face? I'm not.

The NFL's ratings are in the toilet for many reasons. Kaepernick is one. If you think holding your hand over your heart during the National Anthem is silly and pointless, maybe you should leave the country. Move anywhere else. You're free to leave. Best of luck to you. We won't miss you.

Hey Nicola... Can we start giving out badges for worst forum posts ever? Because I think this one would definitely be in the running.

The NFL ratings are definitely not in the toilet and if you think that Kaepernick has negatively affected ratings then you are even more delusional than your previous posts would indicate. Your comments read like a Donald Trump tweet at 3 am. Maybe you should edit yours to add the words "tremendous" and "sad".

Did you actually just tell me to "leave America?" Now before I publicly eviscerate and embarrass you for your predictably short tenure on this site, I would encourage you to either do your research or apologize profusely for your ignorance. I'll be happy either way.

A couple years ago Colin Kaepernick made nation-wide headlines when he chose to take a knee during the national anthem prior to an NFL game in an effort to increase awareness for police brutality against black people.

Now predictably, this caused a firestorm of hatred. And likewise predictably this sentiment was most marked among those who claim to love “freedom” yet reacted to a man quietly kneeling during the anthem as if he had publically sacrificed a live baby on TV.

The most common comment among opponents of his stance was “I support his right to protest, but he should have done it a different way.”

Well, what way would you prefer? If people march in the streets, you say that they should do it a different way. If a guy quietly kneels during the anthem, you say he should do it a different way. Please let us all know what the right way for a person to protest is? Because it kind of seems like you just don’t want anyone protesting if you disagree with his stance.

And can we please address this silly “rah-rah” stupid “hey, hey USA” bullshit and the idea that everyone needs to stand at attention and place their hand on their chest during the national anthem. I’m sorry.. What year are we in? Is this 1157? Check the memo but the heart is an organ for pumping blood. If you want to penalize people for some symbolic antiquated bullshit then please stop touting yourself as the bastion of freedom and democracy.


This is all old news. But Kaepernick still remains unsigned going into week two of the current NFL season. Teams don’t want to deal with the drama that comes along with him.

This might hold water if the NFL wasn’t so notorious for accepting people who are not exactly the best humans on the planet. This brings me to Joe Mixon. Mixon is a current member of the Cincinnati Bengals who was caught on tape knocking out a girl. Check this out:


https://www.youtube.com/embed/9d6jd-Lqdss

Now if you want to claim “drama” as the reason for not signing someone, then this would probably be a deal breaker. But it certainly wasn’t. Mixon was drafted in the first round. Apparently knocking a girl out is nothing compared to a guy quietly kneeling during the national anthem. (See a pattern here?)

Side note: Girls… please don’t challenge guys to fights in bars. Please don’t hit guys. Most guys will not do anything, but if it actually goes down, it will not end well for you. I’ve had girls do this kind of thing to me numerous times and it’s a lose lose situation for me. I would take a hundred hits to the face and I’ll do nothing but you have to realize that some guys will react differently.

And this is far from an isolated incident for NFL prospects. The NFL is littered with criminals and acquitted criminals. Minnesota Vikings Rookie Dalvin Cook (Who will be a superstar) was cited for animal cruelty, for chaining up three puppies by the neck until they were almost dead. He also was charged with assault for threatening someone with a gun and charged with assault. Oh… wait there’s more. He also was charged with punching a girl outside a nightclub.

Oh but at least he didn’t kneel during the national anthem… dontknow

Give me a fucking break. I could literally go for days about the horrible shit that NFL players have done. And I can guarantee that kneeling during the national anthem wouldn’t even make the list.

Is Kaepernick a solid starter? Probably not. But he did take the 49ers to a Superbowl and he’s definitely better than the majority of backup QBs in the league.

Anyone who bitches about "freedom" and respect for the flag should do their fucking research.

Topic Global Warming and the Attack on Environmentalism
Posted 11 Sep 2017 20:24

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all stop pointing the finger at each other.. j'accuse.. and accept that Mother Nature is on the change big time.

Perhaps if we mend our ways we might slow her down just a tad... but we need to accept the fact that climate change is a natural phenomena.. has been since the dawn of time... and we weren't here then... and that we can't stop it... certainly not reverse it. How dumb is that attitude.

Perhaps we could take all the energy .. and money... we waste.. and invest both into developing ways to cope .. and eventually survive that which Mother Nature is naturally throwing at us.

My 2 cents



When I first read this, my first reaction was to tell you to take your two cents and shove them... well you get the point.

But then I realized that I actually kind of agree with you. There is a natural warming of the earth that has been taking place since the last ice age. That is undisputed. Regarding the impact that humans have on global warming... Well, I think I'll side with the thousands of scientists that agree that humans do actually have an affect on climate change.

Now I don't know what you are good at, or if you are even good at anything. But try to imagine that you have devoted your life to something else other than choosing the right nail polish to match your handbag... Then imagine that someone with zero knowledge in your area of "expertise" steps forth and tells you that you are wrong.

I know by know that people like you just don't grasp the concept of science. Objective truths mean nothing to you. You believe what you want based what you think will benefit yourself. I'm sorry if your Daddy owns stocks in a coal mine in Pennsylvania, but once you climb out of that "spoiled little brat" persona that you seem so willing to perpetuate, you will need to realize that other people in the world suffer regardless of your ignorance.

If you don't care, then just say it. But when you disagree with over 99% of experts, then that takes a superb level of arrogance that not I can comprehend.

There is no controversy. The only controversy is whether people like you are just selfish or stupid. I'm guessing a combination of both.

I'm a little concerned about the level of micro-aggressions that have been circulating in the spa. Perhaps we could create another forum that prohibits micro aggressions as well as celebrates religious tolerance.

Someone used the term "Hallelujah" which is an obviously culturally and insensitive attack on non Judeo-Christian religious beliefs.

If someone uses such a culturally insensitive word then they should be forced to offer alternatives, such as equivalents in all the major world religions.

I suggest the creation of a "safespace" forum where we can all feel safe from these intolerable micro-aggressions.

And there you have it , Folks! The gospel on tolerance/intolerance from Mt. Olympus, headquarters of one of the most intolerant people I have ever come in contact with. And I have come in contact with a few.

But all is not perfection in his world. If it were, he wouldn't be so bitter and angry, and perhaps he would be a bit less intolerant.

And perhaps a bit less self delusional. Note the three sentences I put in bold. No, he's never tried on this forum to prevent anyone from saying anything. But he's done everything he could to punish people verbally in any way he could for who he imagines they are and/or what they might dare to say. He's actively encouraged several posters to leave Think Tank and never return. So that make the second sentence in bold a bald faced lie, to us but more importantly to himself. He doesn't encourage anyone from saying anything. I challenge him to point out where he does any of that. He won't because he can't.

And that brings me to the third sentence I put in bold. I have no idea what the law is in Canada, but US courts have ruled that an attack does not have to be physical in nature to be real, both to the attacker and the victim. No he hasn't physically attacked anyone on Lush that I'm aware of. But his verbal and psychological attacks occur every time he posts and his attempts to discourage people from posting on Think Tank apparently make him a legend in his own mind.

Perhaps all those who fly the Confederate battle flag are assholes, but there are obviously some assholes who do not.

I'm going to have to ask you folks to do without me for a few days. I have a date with Irma. She's a big girl packing 185kt. winds. I have no idea whether she'll leave me with internet, power, of a house to live in. But I'll do my best to rejoin you all at some point in the future.

Why is it that you people always bitch about people being "too sensitive" about stuff like racism, yet you are the most thin skinned person that has ever entered this site?

Topic Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor - 26th August
Posted 06 Sep 2017 18:02

UFC/MMA is still just a fledgling niche sport with a graffiti skinned fan base which doesn't even follow real sports. 50% are just probably on the wagon if you catch my drift.So, allow me to educate you with some facts regarding the fight.

1)Sugar Ray Leonard is a boxing legend. Just cuz you didn't like his commentary doesn't change that fact. Of course he's biased, he's a boxing great. Probably a little miffed at the audacity/disrespect of Mickey G' to even want to get in the boxing ring with Mayweather.

2)The guy in the bowtie stopped the fight "early" as you say is so Mickey G could save a little face. The powers that be were not about to let McGregor get hauled off on a stretcher. How would that look for MMA?

3)A 40 year old former boxing champion who hasn't fought in 2 years handily defeats The face of MMA. A 29 year old in the prime of his career MMA champion at that. Mayweather did surgery on Mickey G. What do you think would have happened if Mayweather was 29 and in his prime? Huh?

4) Even Brock Lesnar was a mma champion even though he couldn't cut it in the NFL or WWE. What does that tell you? Keep tellin yourself it's a legit sport.

There ya have it. It was your pleasure.



Holy shit. Thank you for "educating" me. This is just music to my ears. :)

1. I know who Sugar Ray is. Just because ancient boxing fans don't know who MMA fighters are.. doesn't mean that MMA fans don't know who Leonard is. The commentary was ridiculous and borderline embarrassing. If he didn't approve of the fight then he shouldn't have accepted the paycheck.

2. Have you ever seen an MMA fight? Conner wasn't going to get "hauled off on a stretcher." He didn't even get knocked down. He didn't even go to the hospital. He went to the press conference and promoted his new whiskey. He was tired, not concussed. The boxing community wanted the fight stopped because there was a chance that Conner had won 3-6 rounds. (before the bullshit scorecards became public). Did you see his fights with Nate Diaz? If he didn't get hauled off on a stretcher after those fights then I doubt Floyd's Dorito hands would do it.

3. Yeah... the best boxer on the planet lost rounds to a guy that was 0-0 in boxing. You take that as a win? This wasn't MMA vs boxing. It was a boxing match between an MMA fighter and an undefeated boxer. Do you think Floyd would have the balls to step into the octagon for an MMA fight? Even against the worst fighter in the UFC he wouldn't last a minute.

4. I don't know what Lesnar has to do with any of this let alone the WWE (which is garbage) or the NFL. Football is a different sport with a different skill set. No boxer or MMA fighter could step into the NFL and compete. Your comments indicate a complete lack of knowledge in sports in general.

Say what you want about the fight. I wasn't a big proponent of it. But please explain to us all how MMA is not a "legit sport." Your type of antiquated thinking is why boxing is dying.

So go back to stealing material from Bob Arum and come back with something substantial. I know that you are new and I welcome you to the forums, but you might want to start with an easier matchup.

Topic Global Warming and the Attack on Environmentalism
Posted 06 Sep 2017 15:40

I recently noticed that my good friend Seax started a thread about global warming.

A couple of weeks ago, there was an eclipse. How did we know there was going to be an eclipse? The people that have chosen to devote their lives to that area of scientific research told us so. Now did anyone disagree with them? Did anyone claim that the eclipse was just a left wing conspiracy or Chinese propaganda? Of course not.

And why? Because it didn’t hurt anyone’s bottom dollar or discount anyone’s religious beliefs.

So isn’t it a bit ridiculous that 100% of the population believes scientists when you take politics out of the picture but as soon as you inject politics, the number immediately drops to 50%?

I think we all know that conservatives aren’t really big fans of “science.” But let’s delve into this a bit. These people like to claim that there is some kind of controversy when it comes to global warming. Now that’s true to an extent… but the “controversy is 1% vs 99%. Not 50/50.

In comparison, only 94% of researchers believe that smoking increases risk of cancer. Let that sink in.

In science, we have things called “objective truths.” These are separate from political opinion and the “alternative fact” argument just doesn’t hold water.

Now this is nothing new. Right wingers will always do whatever it takes to benefit them. But there is also a trend among the uneducated masses who somehow find it uncool to care about the environment and the world we live in. I think we all know someone who fits into this category.

When Theodore Roosevelt started making national parks, people referred to him as a tyrant. He didn’t care. He knew that it would benefit the country in the future. He saw the writing on the wall and he knew that he needed to protect sections of pristine nature for the benefit of future generations. To this day, very few people (if any) think that Yellowstone, or Grand Canyon National parks were a bad idea. But regardless, every time the government wants to make a new national park they are met with hostility. There are always people who want to exploit nature for short term benefits and there are always dummies that will support them because it’s “the cool thing to do.”

Now I’m not a big “tree hugger.” But I am a fan of knowledge and information. When people suppress information for economic or religious reasons I have a problem with that. I ask again, what side of history do you want to be on? Do you want to be the guy that lobbied for the Grand Canyon to be blown up for mining? There are just certain things that make sense.

And if you mullet toting, NASCAR watching folks are going to listen to someone... maybe lean towards the people that devote their lives to studying that area of knowledge and not the politicians that are beholden to oil and coal companies that have something to gain from your ignorance.

Hi Van,

Yeah, in fantasy football you pick players from every team. Then each week you choose your lineup and go head to head against someone else in your league. You can also drop players, pick players up and make trades with others in your league based on player performance, injuries etc. If you're interested in joining, let me know and I'll send you an invite.
