+ Except that none of that is true George; Croft and Cooper both testified under oath that the Ukrainians were well aware that Trump had frozen [. . .]

+ It's physically impossible to extort someone without their knowledge. The testimony established that the Ukrainians weren't aware of the holdup until after [. . .]

So the general feeling at this point is that things are moving along swimmingly?

Wow - that sounds really moving. I haven't watched the show, but I would like to see that episode. Thanks!

Pete's my #2 choice after Amy who has even less of a shot than he does for the nod. So I sympathize.

+ I'm pretty content, so far, with how the hearings have gone. The Democratic Congressfolk have been sober, serious and matter of fact. The witnesses have [. . .]

+ Well, yesterday apparently didn't go well for Democrats, with even CNN admitting that the Democrats didn't have anything new and didn't move the needle. [. . .]

+ Ah, okay. Old school Supernatural, original first five seasons Supernatural, was...sometimes a bit sexist. Not because of the fact women got killed off (Everyone gets killed [. . .]

I guess that's the chance they take.

Change what works about the show and lose their audience.

Make a new show and have to build an audience.

Exactly. It's not just the women in the show who are killed, not by a longshot.

Great point about the sibling relationship.

But the new show might not have an audience...

+ Yep, I'm aware of it all, and the spinoff. View what I wrote as a defense of the old-school all boy Supernatural if you'd [. . .]

I completely agree with you on every point.

+ I think they should just cancel it and make a new show in that case. I don't get the point of demanding that a [. . .]

+ I wouldn't say that, they're about two different things. The supernatural stuff is just the scaffolding upon which the subtext is hung for both shows. [. . .]

Thanks for reading!!! Yes I don't even want to know how much my older boys spend on gaming!!

I wish it was a cooking article, LOL, it would be much more entertaining

+ Thanks, Mike. You sound like you're my kind of player - I'm not unwilling to pay money for a game, or even to upgrade [. . .]

Ok, who are you and what did you do with the real slim shady Chip?

None of those are free; The actual working models are paid for with taxes.

+ One thing that probably should be brought out is that it's a story about brothers, and brothers have their own dynamic that is different from [. . .]

That's a really good point, there are people out there who are so compulsive they probably can't resist. Definitely very exploitative.

+ Eh, I think there's a vast difference between Supernatural being the most sexist show on TV and acting like there's no issues with it at [. . .]
+ Yes that seems to be what happened on PVZ Heroes (a Plants Vs. Zombies card game like Magic the Gathering) which I used to play [. . .]
