    [–] Trump Is Setting The Stage To Fire Mueller RunDNA 17 points ago in politics

    Adam Schiff on twitter, June 12, 2017:

    If President fired Bob Mueller, Congress would immediately re-establish independent counsel and appoint Bob Mueller. Don't waste our time.

    [–] User who claims to be target of 'liberal conspiracy' caught faking posts in attempt to prove he's being censored. RunDNA 2 points ago in quityourbullshit

    This post is wrong. You claim:

    it would show your username as [removed] as well in that post if it were genuinely taken down by a r/MGTOW mod.

    On the contrary, here is a link to a /r/quityourbullshit post from yesterday that was removed by the mods where the username is still clearly there:

    You can also tell their post was a real removal by the mods because on the original post (seen here in a link from there is a text box around the original "Why?" post-text, just like a normal post would have:

    If you compare that to the post after it was removed you will see that there is now no text-box around the "[removed]", a sure sign that it is a real removal and not just OP typing "[removed]" to trick people:

    In this article it says:

    The state of Florida currently does not have a law where a citizen is obligated to render aid or call for help for anyone in distress.

    "If there was (a law like that) we would charge them," Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez told CNN by phone.

    "The family is frustrated … the detectives are frustrated, that we cannot hold anyone accountable for this," Martinez added. "No one deserves to go like that."

    [–] What is all of this fuss about Ed Sheeran and Game of Thrones? RunDNA 2 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    I meant "old-timey" in the Miriam-Webster definition:

    of a kind or style prevalent in or reminiscent of an earlier time.

    [–] What is all of this fuss about Ed Sheeran and Game of Thrones? RunDNA 2310 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    The singer Ed Sheeran briefly appears in the first episode of the new season of Game of Thrones. He's singing an old-timey song in the forest and Arya comes along and eats dinner with him and his fellow soldiers. Apparently he was only cast as a surprise for Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, because she is a big fan of his.

    The controversy is because some GoT fans say it takes them out of their immersion to see a famous pop star in the show and that the scene was awkward to watch. I emphasize "some" because if you look at this highly upvoted reddit post on the topic (WARNING: SPOILERS) opinion is all over the place.

    [–] [S3E10] Has pace been explained? RunDNA 16 points ago in twinpeaks

    Sorry, I hope my reply didn't come off as snarky. I meant it as a passionate defence of the show.

    I guess I was directing my reply at fans of Lynch and Twin Peaks, like yourself, that are giving the show every chance but are frustrated, and I was hoping to effect a slight mental readjustment, a way of reframing things, that might increase your enjoyment of the new series.

    Average 4-5 mins per credit song, multiplied over 18 episodes equals 72-90 mins of screen time that could have been spent on other plot lines.

    This logic is where so many people are getting it wrong.

    Let's approximate that if we did a fan-edit cutting all the padding and slow scenes and musical sequences then the series as it is currently would only be 15 episodes long instead of 18 episodes.

    Some people are imagining that if Lynch and Frost had done this editing early in the process then we still would have seen 18 episodes, but there would have been an extra 3 episodes of bonus scenes and extra plot development. This assumes that the season was supposed to be a fixed 18 episodes long and Lynch and Frost had to fill up those episodes. From this point of view that 3 episodes of "filler" could have been replaced with 3 episodes of extra scenes. This gets some people frustrated, as though they are missing out on something.

    But the opposite is the case. The series has as many episodes as it takes to tell the story in exactly the weird way they want to tell it. It was originally 9 episodes and then expanded to 18 episodes, because that's how long it would take to tell the story. If they had cut all the "filler" you wouldn't have got 18 episodes with 3 extra episodes worth of bonus scenes. You would have just got 15 episodes.

    It's like being frustrated with those chapters in Moby Dick about the history of whaling and whatnot, imagining that if they were cut then we would have extra chapters about Ahab and his hunt for the whale. No, we wouldn't. We would just have a shorter Moby Dick.

    So enjoy those "filler" scenes in the new Twin Peaks, even if they are too slow or tangential for you. They are not taking the place of other bonus content. They ARE the bonus content. In all their weird and wonderful brilliance.

    [–] [S3E10] Did we just see the same day TWICE thru?? RunDNA 3 points ago in twinpeaks

    The ordering of scenes has generally been consistent prior to this episode (not counting all the dates that appear and don't match up) with two exceptions: 1) the deliberate time wonkiness when Cooper appears in the New York box, and 2) at the end of Part 4 and beginning of Part 5, where Cooper has pancakes for breakfast, followed by some nighttime scenes, and then Cooper is leaving the house after breakfast to go to work, which doesn't make sense.

    In the last two episodes the ordering of scenes is all over the place.

    Diane receives a text message in the daytime in Part 9. Two nights then go by over the rest pf Parts 9 and 10, and then Albert says, "Diane received this text on her phone at 11:13 this morning." That event happened two days ago if the scenes were consistently in order.

    Also, the timing with the doctors appointment is screwy too, as you mention. There's an attempted timeline at the Dugpa forum where they discuss these things.

    [–] Forewords: Does anyone really read them? RunDNA 5 points ago in books

    I always read them. I love forwards and footnotes and textual notes. In fact, there's a Penguin Classics or two where I've read the forward but not the actual book.
