    "We're not f*cking Burundi" - Big Phil

    Comment


      While wouldn't wish for the virus to take Trump's life, I wouldn't wish him well either.

        Today was a great day for sports.

          So opening the pubs was a great idea then

          Closing everything down for a few weeks is going to be a tough sell

            Open schools are the virus ridden elephant in the room.

                  Looks like an off road version of a hearse - he might be in worse shape then he is letting on

                            It really is a no brainer at that price.

                            I was just thinking today that the first person to make Among Us in VR is going to make a fortune. It would work amazingly well in VR and would also be social and fun for groups to play together.

                                Had a load of follow on youtube lined up, but this new vbullitan thing doesnt let it flow like it did/should.

                                      So the secret service haven't been too secretive about how pissed off they are at the lack of respect and willingness to risk them by Trump but...

                                      Seek help!

                                      I hope he lives because... prison

                                      Funny how the right-wing groups are supporting him while claiming to be hunting pedo's

                                        I think there is some version of it in Rec Room.. My son plays that game a lot.
                                        I'd love to play some Among Us with voice chat if someone will organise it. Would be great fun.

                                          Tut tut. That's somebody's grandfather you are talking about.

                                          As opposed to the 100s of thousands of nobodys grandfathers..

                                              I thought mentioning that he is a grandfather was particularly ridiculous, I've been laughing about that for days. You could make some pretty funny obituaries for historical baddies.

                                                    Trump at his highest estimated approval ratings since mid April. The margins are very small but trajectory is interesting. Little in the way of oscillations since a low of 40.8% at end of July to 44.7% now.

                                                    Perhaps the incumbent always sees an increase in approval ratings closer to election time and obviously doesn’t mean Biden isn’t crushing in the polls but I think the polls/ratings will be interesting in the coming days.

                                                      Among us is great craic. Was playing last night with a a bunch of Brazilians. Some chance of trying to figure out what's happening with 9 lads shouting over each other in Portuguese and me flat out on Google translate - blue was in the vents!

                                                      If someone has a discord set up already it would make things a lot easier to get going.

                                                          He is massively down in the national polls, the RCP average has him down over 8 points and it's increasing every day. It's a two horse race, of course he has a chance, but it's a small one and would require a miraculous turnaround. At the moment we're on course for the biggest blowout since Reagan times.

                                                            I totally agree, I know he's crushing by double digits in some polls.

                                                            I just found that it is somewhat counterintuitive that he's being totally crushed in the polls but his approval ratings of registered voters is consistently improving over the past few months.

                                                              It's still a large net negative number. No president can get re-elected that way.

                                                                Yes I understand that but the divergence between approval ratings and polling numbers over the past number of months is interesting nonetheless.

                                                                It happened with Obama too where his approval ratings had an uptick in the lead up to his 2nd term having dipped below 50% in the middle of the year.

                                                                As I said perhaps it's a common trend for the incumbent irrespective of polling.

He's going to get say 45% of the vote no matter what based on partisanship so it's no surprise that people who are resigned to voting for him begin to convince themselves that they approve of him. I'm pretty sure I read from 538 and/or the Economist that this effect is normal.

Sounds more like he lost it in a private cash game (hotel room?) rather than in the Poker room with the mentions of "illicet game" and "got a few slaps when he tried to leave". Anyway hopefully they get to the bottom of it for his familys sake. Still strange that no body ever tuned up if it was an accidental death at the hands of another tourist.

                                                                                                                        Plenty still doesn't add up though. At least in the reporting of it...

                                                                                                                        How would his fellow countryman dispose of a body in a foreign country? I know if I accidentally killed someone with an over enthusiastic box round the ear in Iceland I wouldn't have a clue how to successfully cover it up. Probably why I'm not a criminal mastermind.

                                                                                                                        Also why would he be playing an 'illicit' poker game at a poker tournament? And who plays poker with anyone who might have the potential to dish out a few slaps at the table?

                                                                                                                        Hope the picture becomes clearer though. Horrible way to go over a relatively paltry sum.
