    So there's still plenty of scope for shenanigans even after certification.

    Hillary Clinton being an Elector for New York is a fun tidbit.
    The market is currently pricing his chance of pulling it off at c. 10% realistically the real possibility must be a tiny fraction of that

    I'm really confused by this, it just looks so clearly an opportunity to buy money that I must be missing something huge

      Ha no way. A lot of Reps are waiting on certification, then once that is sealed there will be widespread congrats to Biden. Trump is surrounding himself with the type that cant be trusted . It's all about self interest . For now they are just scared of him.

        In 2016 there was a popular vote loser who won the Electoral College but absolutely no suggestion at that time that the election was in any way unfair or invalid. Even so, 6 out of the 538 Electors voted faithlessly. Trump probably needs somewhere around 30 Electors to jump ship for him to win.

        There's also a chance that some of the Electors jump from Biden for Bernie Sanders or Hillary or The Bald Eagles of America (think that one or something like it actually got a vote from Washington State in 2016) and leave neither Trump nor Biden with 270. In which case the election goes to a Congressional vote.

        I have no idea how you price an event that has never happened and, for it to happen, would require a large number of independent events to all line up perfectly for Trump. I'm not sure you can price it as high as 10% but that's a gut instinct rather than based on any risk-analysis. But it's definitely a non-zero chance that the Electoral College changes the result.

          I see it as a tiny possibility - there's lots of things that are technically possible but practically impossible.

          It's not even worth thinking about tbh.

                          Season 3 is Biggie and Tupac
                          Season 4 does David Duke

                          Apparently Season 5 is coming in the Spring and does the lead-up to the Iraq War

                          Just seeing have you vetted these for my listening pleasure.
                          Note sure if Biggie & Tupac is up your alley but if you liked the previous seasons you'll probably like the story telling. I've still yet to start season 4 but am looking forward to it.

                                                  I asked recently d turned onto lastpass as a solution.

                                                    That movie is interesting, the lad behind it has a couple of solid credits including Doubt which was very good and Moonlighting which won oscars.
                                                    Maybe he's trying to have it every way being pitched as a light piece of paddywhackery at the inhabitants of Trump's dumbfuckistan and at the same time some sort of meta comedy to everybody else.
                                                    I don't think there will be nearly enough laughs to carry me through it.

                                                        Lastpass is fanastic, however the premium version is worth getting.

                                                        Amazingly, Bitwarden offer all of the premium features of Lastpass except for free.

                                                        I am currently using both, aiming to fully migrate to Bitwarden next year and no longer pay lastpass' fees.

                                                        Comment


                                                          +1 for Lastpass premium.

                                                          I use it for work and personal stuff. You can share out passwords to family or co-workers too, handy little feature.

                                                          Annoyed that Logmein bought them as the annual sub tripled over two years .


                                                          EDIT: Bitwarden looks good and the "family" sub for 6x users is cheaper than my single user lastpass sub. Must give it a punt on the free tier first.

I'm really bad, I used to use the same one all the time, and still have it as a password in some places despite Google explicitly telling me it's been compromised.

It is pretty likely that a site you use has been compromised at some stage or will be in the future exposing the password for everything.
