Seems like rescuing dogs during lockdown is a thing around here. It happened to us this past week. This guy wandered up dirty and skinny, playing with my daughter in the front yard. After a few days o

Nah. Pete and Amy weren't going to get black voters to come out and we both know that. If Kamala had Pete's support in IA/NH, the call would have been made for Biden to drop out instead of Pete/Amy. She would have been the person that they rallied around. As soon as Pete and Amy started to rise, it was obvious that only Bernie and Biden would be able to win outright. Pete and Amy's only chance of winning the nomination was at a contested convention and Bernie killed that with his declaration that the plurality winner of delegates should be the nom in that situation. 

Kamala got knocked out by Tulsi of all people and ****posting on twitter. She was never a strong candidate despite all the media adulation she received.

Just gonna body slam Yuffie like that :sadwave:

I thought about Yuffie as I was playing through the part where I got the steal materia. Kinda weird to get it so early in the game when the only character who is an actual thief doesn’t join your party until near the end of the story. And wasn’t she completely optional in the original too? Her and Vincent.

I am not talking about who is or isn't a strong candidate. I am saying if she had the same percentage as Pete. She would have been the person they rallied around. Pete had no path to win the nomination without a contested convention. Center Left completely blew their chances.

And I'm saying Kamala was never going to get that opportunity since she was a very weak candidate. I have my fair share of negative opinions about Buttigieg but his campaign was very strong, at least in terms of statewide organizing. His problem was that he only spent resources in those states. Meanwhile, Kamala's campaign was as much of a ****show as the candidate.

Her and Vincent are so optional that it's actually kinda jarring to the story if you go back and actually watch how other characters don't really interact with them as much as they should (outside thier personal arc quests) because the writers had to account for the player not recruiting them without shaking up the plot too much, so sometimes you get this Bruce Willis 6th sense effect where they throw in some input but it doesn't actually effect the conversation

 

Also Bioware games:

Greybeards: You need to stop Alduin. The world is going to end if you don't.

Me: Look, I need to decorate my dozen houses first.

It's actually sorta what makes Rockstar sandboxes especially like GTA/RDR2 so great is that there isn't some doom clock so ****ing about still feels organic and not immersion breaking. 

Zelda would be pissed if she knew how much time Link spent collecting outfits and fishing while Ganon was Biden sniffing her hair (I assume, I haven't actually played a Zelda game in 20 years)

This veteran thinks whoever did this is a big ****in loser.

I'm not crazy about being called a hero. This is the profession I have chosen and I knew the inherent risks going in. Much like those in the military. My lawn guy tried to give me a huge discount last weekend and I just gave it back to him in the form of a tip. I consider teachers and guys like him heroes because they do necessary things that I know I couldn't or wouldn't want to do. That how a functioning society works. 

But..... if you see me out somewhere once this is over and want to buy me a bourbon, I'm not going to turn it down. ;)

Dutch would probably be mad if he knew how much time I spent hunting birds to get a fancy lad hat.

I have so much respect for nurses it might be literally the last job on Earth I'd ever want to do myself and we need so many people to actually do it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm probably regretting this thought when the magic monkey's paw of ironic bold statements has me on my third shift as fluffer on the 70s porn set or as a IED disarmament point man but I guess what I'm saying is I could never do it in 10 lifetimes.

So True GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHY

Once I was listening to heart sounds on a patient with a tracheostomy when he suddenly coughed up a mucus plug and I caught the world's biggest loogie broadside in the face.

Word got around very quickly about my receiving a lung butter bukkake. Not my finest moment.
