The Question Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

David Mulugheta, a prominent NFL agent and the president of Athletes First, had a brutally honest response to Ditka’s comments.

“This doesn’t surprise me at all. Mike Dikta traded his helmet in for a white hood as soon as he retired from football. Racism hiding behind faux patriotism is still racism,” the NFL agent said on Twitter.

In 85 da coach was a God, no one knew or even thought about his politics. Things started turning south in 1987 during the strike when the NFL hired scabs. He turned on his guys and pronounced the Spare Bears the real Bears.

When he had a heart attack in 1988 helicopters were flying over Halas Hall and local news interrupted programming. Chicago still loved him, the players, not so much. His office was stocked with fine wine and cigars, two D linemen, Dan "Danimal " Hampton and Steve "Mongo" McMichael relieved Ditka of his stash with no remorse.

There is some merit to the idea of "if you don't like it here, then leave" in regard to things that really aren't changeable. F'rinstance, if you're going to constantly whine about hot humid weather, don't live in South Florida. And don't try to bring your damn big box store to St. Johnsbury, VT. But it's way too often applied to simple differences in political/cultural opinion among citizens with (supposedly) equal standing. I remember when a response to "love it or leave it" was "change it or lose it."

I don't usually watch trump, but yesterday I watched a 5 minute video of trump explaining to Chris Wallace how he did better than anyone on his dementia test.
When I looked for it today, I couldn't find it. I found a bunch of articles explaining it and these articles had 4 and 5 minute videos, but all had been changed to coronavirus bs.

Does anyone have a link to the long video about the test, all I can find is short tweet videos?
The best part of that interview was when Trump was explaining to Wallace how difficult the test was and how he aced it, and how the last five questions were exceptionally hard. Wallace responds with (paraphrased) "Sir one of the questions was to count back 7 from 100", Trump says something then Wallace says the answer "93".

Trump's use of hyperbole makes him sound ridiculous most of the time, but this time he made himself sound like a complete moron (more so than usual).

Notes:
5150 Hold

Under California Welfare and Institutions Code (WIC) 5150, an individual can be placed (involuntary) to a locked psychiatric facility, for an evaluation for up to 72 hours. Any peace officer or specific individuals authorized by a county government may place the hold. Three criteria apply – the individual is assessed to be: a danger to themselves, a danger to others, or "gravely disabled". Per WIC 5008, grave disability is defined as an individual's lack of ability, due to their mental illness, to provide for their food, clothing, or shelter.
While working ER in California I participated in many 5150s.

Probably everybody has asked the question "why the fuck do I have to click through a stupid slide show to read a simple article? The answer, of course, is that by putting the article in slide version, they can make more click bait appear on your screen. Not too long ago, a lot of the articles had a small print option at the top to "view as one page" but they stopped doing that. Sometimes you can reduce it to one page by deleting all the address to the right of [file name]. But they wised up to that too, and most of them don't work for that anymore.

And then there's "deslide" a website that recodes the pages into one. http://deslide.clusterfake.net/

You can put the bookmarklet on your bookmarks line and when you get to a webpage with a slide show, just click on the bookmarklet and it will open the a new tab and show everything on one page.

It does not work for all sites, but it works for a bunch.
