Even if MLB was found to want the Cubs to win this year, wouldn't they still have to go out there and win the games? you know, score more runs than the opponent? How much could MLB really do to influence that?
Dan Szymborski
1:09
I don't think that was necessarily implied.

To summarize my earlier off-topic post - This election cycle sure seems like an episode of South Park, no?
Dan Szymborski
1:09
Yes

No Man Sky is gonna be a disappointing to people who don't know how to roleplay. Lots of people don't seem to understand its an emergent roleplaying game with very little structure, many tears will be shed
Dan Szymborski

Yeah, but I like that kind of thing. I've got like 600 hours of CK2

Mom insists on me and her driving up to Canada on a Monday to go to the Canadian version of Five Guys, the Good Guys. Up there, they serve a sandwich that's just like a hamburger but it has two kinds of cheese on top and mom is insistent that we try it.

Then suddenly I'm up there in Canada but with Kat and not mom and these two guys won't let us leave the parking lot so I keep having to beat them up. They're bgoth very bad fighters, so I have to beat the crap out of them and then we leave.

Then it's me and Alan and Mike still in Canada but we go to a pancake place. It's this gigantic restaurant with multiple floors and on the etop level, there are desks to root around in. We help with the dishes before we go and it takes longer becasue there's a piano. I play the slow movement from the beethoven pathetique for this old couple. Alan wants to get sheet music from the car, but I decide it's time to leave because the old people left and the people near us didn' tsem to be the tpe.

When I get out th
there, I ask Alan for directions to get back to Baltimore but he's completely unhelpful. He finds the way back to Wyoming and I was gettign seriously annoyed. He tells me then I need to be driving on hte left side of the street, which I do, but it nearly gets us a crash. We're driving down this deserted by fancy road newar Parliament buildings, but then I wake up.
You get a long dream for both on topic and chapman

On a sclare of potato to 52, how funny would it be if Mike Piazza was actually a pizza.

If Donald Trump was the GM of the Yankees, he would have traded Chapman to an expansion franchise that doesn't even exist yet -- creating jobs.

They had the creator of jenga on an episode of freaknomics and she said her strategy was to hold the tower with her elbows while she pulled out a piece. I know the rules "technically" say no hands, but that is a huge copout

Did you play the Witcher 3? I'm finally getting to it now and it's pretty much the best thing I've ever played.
Dan Szymborski

Yeah, just finished my second playthrough with Blood & Wine out

Spoiler alert for new fans of the Witcher series, Witcher 2 is actually better than Witcher 3 ::audible gasps::
Dan Szymborski

I think 3 is better.
NOW DONE
