    They're different alright I could hear a small but boisterous house party, all women, near me at the weekend. But they they broke into acapella renditions of "The Fields of Athenry" and "Lisdoonvarna".

      That's just Manhattan - For me, the greatest city in the world. I don't think I will ever tire of that sky line. Just looking at that picture has me itching to get back there!

Not saying you can't be sociable in the countryside, but it's a hell of a lot easier when you live in a city centre filled with bars, restaurants and other amenities, and there's little to no friction to going out. There's a big difference between walking out the door, versus having to get a 20min+ taxi each way.
        Ah if you live in the country, you just drive everywhere. On the back roads on the way home obvs.

          538 podcast, Daniel Epps is the guest, Washington Uni Law Professor. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features...ng-legitimacy/

          Touches on a few pieces similar to Lord Sumption from Reith lectures on decisions given by Judicial branch that might be better taken by legislative.

          You listening to anything decent, you like NPR if I remember?

            RIP Bunny 'Striker' Lee.

            Prolific producer, musician and label owner whose deft hands were all over the sound of Jamaica in the 70s and 80s, with a decent claim to 'inventing' reggae.

                  Cool thanks, ill give that a listen. I've heard plenty of stuff about how the Democrats could pack the court etc, but that's probably just wishful thinking.

                  Podcasts about Crypto/Audio Engineering take up most of my listening time now, which aren't really of much general interest, but the NPR fresh air podcast is great in general, it has a nice mixture of arts and politics, the interviewer Terry Gross is fantastic. The episode on Pence was very interesting, a really good portrait of him rather than the caricature he is normally presented as. https://www.npr.org/2019/09/26/76461...ent-mike-pence

                        Getting caught in the act alone is probably the most embarrassing thing that can happen to you. I thought everyone was in bed out cold BUT I didnt notice her creeping footsteps . The door burst open I fumbled but couldn't hide what I was doing . Extreme mortification.

                                I thought this debate was going better than last weeks, but three times so far the candidate has completely ignored the question and spoken about something else for 2 minutes. The art of debate has been lost.

                                  I know you know this but this isnt about debating a point. This is about getting your talking points to a captive audience.

                                  Kamala doing well though.

                                  Pence really has a better way about him than Trump. You can at least respect the man.
                                  This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
                                  All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

                                    Main takes from that debate seem to be Pence with a bit of pinkeye, and a fly landing on his head.

                                        Also I'm sure Trump loves the Jews more than he does black people .

                                              Doesn't seem like they were any gotcha moments there so lets call it a score draw.

                                              The Trump ticket is still miles behind and the driver of the clown car is firing out tweets calling for Obama and Biden to be arrested. Those must be some good drugs his pet doctor has him on.

                                                    Anyone got a good recommendation regarding suit tailoring? Better to buy a few off the shelf and have them tailored or buy them fitted? I figure with WFH there’ll be good deals in suit shops at the moment

Two of Connolly/O'Dowda/Robinson will be the wingers. If Idah starts there's a possibility that McGoldrick could be #10 and Hendrick benched.

                                                                        I think Kenny's system will be 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 for the most part. Very unlikely that he'd switch to a different system with a back three for the first time given that it's knockout. Perhaps down the line but not tonight.

                                                                              Try this: Visualise (picture, imagine, whatever you want to call it) a ball on a table. Now imagine someone walks up to the table, and gives the ball a push. What happens to the ball?

                                                                              .

                                                                              .

                                                                              .

                                                                              .

                                                                              .

                                                                              .

                                                                              .

                                                                              Now, answer these questions:

                                                                              What color was the ball?

                                                                              What gender was the person that pushed the ball?

                                                                              What did they look like?

                                                                              What size is the ball? Like a marble, or a baseball, or a basketball, or something else?

                                                                              What about the table, what shape was it? What is it made of?

                                                                              And now the important question: Did you already know, or did you have to choose a color/gender/size, etc. after being asked these questions?
                                                                              Anyone else have a form of Aphantasia? / phantasic

                                                                              When I was younger I didn't realise how vividly other people are able to visualise things. Kinda just never thought anything of it. Best I can see is as if something was far away on a B&W TV. So for that set of questions above, I only have a very vague idea of a table/bar/person in my head. Dreams are more like ideas than visuals. So while I can lucid dream, it's not particularly exciting. And I never not known when I'm dreaming.


                                                                              It's a bit like internal monologues, some people have them, some people don't, but people generally assume that everyone else has the same as them.

There are two sides regarding Charlston and Confederate statues one sides argument is racist and the others isn't... dressing it up as he was only speaking specifically about the statues doesn't wash, its just denial of what is patently clear to anyone who isn't in deep denial of the fact that Trump is an out and out racist.

There are two sides regarding Charlston and Confederate statues one sides argument is racist and the others isn't... dressing it up as he was only speaking specifically about the statues doesn't wash, its just denial of what is patently clear to anyone who isn't in deep denial of the fact that Trump is an out and out racist.

And you had people -- and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists -- because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.

Kinda just never thought anything of it. Best I can see is as if something was far away on a B&W TV. So for that set of questions above, I only have a very vague idea of a table/bar/person in my head. Dreams are more like ideas than visuals. So while I can lucid dream, it's not particularly exciting. And I never not known when I'm dreaming.


                                                                                                          It's a bit like internal monologues, some people have them, some people don't, but people generally assume that everyone else has the same as them.

Had to make up answers to all the questions. That's very interesting.

Does this mean I condemn them ? phrasing is important as it can indicate mindset. How hard is it to take self responsibility and simply say I - MYSELF CONDEMN WHITE SUPREMACY. . Its a throwaway unless you do.

                                                                                                              'Sure ' Also means fk all.

A woman walks up can’t see her face. Ball falls off and bounces 3 times. I can hear the bouncing noise on a concrete.

                                                                                                                that was genuinely the first pass imagery. If I think back now after reading your full post, There’s lots of other details added. The black and white idea is just completely alien to me.

Everyone repeats it so often, and everyone he wants to vote for him knows it is nonsense. Every time they say it, it helps him imo.
                                                                                                                      Perhaps he doesn't but perpetuating the myth does nothing more than solidify his position with a group that is never voting for a Democrat anyway.

                                                                                                                      It doesn't do anything for him in gaining votes with the undecided voters, which is what he needs. If anything, it's probably fair to say it's a deterrent so hardly a smart move politically.
