  1. Rate The Last Movie You Saw - 2

    BlacKkKlansman: 8.5/10 Definitely worth a watch. Nice scene demonstrating the different in sentiment behind phrases like Black Power versus White Power... which I think Peele and Jones were using to illustrate why saying "Black Lives Matter" carries a different sentiment than "Blue Lives Matter" or "All Lives Matter". Sully: 8/10 I really didn't think there would be anything in this movie worth watching. However, it was really well-acted. The scene between Sully and the air traffic controller was really subtle but very impactful.
  2. Residential schools existed while Jean Chretien was Prime Minister.
  3. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD*** Cal State Athletic Commission has rule that fighters that, at the time they enter the cage, weigh more than 10% of their weightclass, should be asked to move up a division. 24 fighters at UFC 227 weighed over the 10% mark at the time they entered the cage. It is kind of ridiculous. Gardbrant weighed as much as flyweights.
  4. Sad News For The Tinfoil Hat Crowd

    This is my favorite part about the outrage regarding bans from Twitter, etc. It usually comes from the same people that think that businesses should be able to do whatever they want.
  5. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    You could really see Garbrandt reaching back with his shoulder to throw that right. TJ just more precise.
  6. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Such an awesome fight.
  7. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Poor Cub is just never going to be a legit title contender.
  8. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Not that TJ is that likeable either, but I just can't stand Garbrandt.
  9. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    Kevin Holland lost the fight but definitely earned some fans/promoted himself.
  10. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    DC is really raw, and sometimes predicts things during a fight that don't actually happen, but the level of insight he provides during commentary is unlike anything I've heard. Rogan would try a bit of this when guys are on the ground, but DC covers all areas of a fight.
  11. [Signing] Jannik Hansen signs in KHL

    There is no way his game just fell off a cliff. He must have just not fit the system in SJ. Surprised he didn't get a look from another organization.
  12. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    This is what I want answered. I was certain it was just 12-6 strikes, the target did not matter, but lots of people on Twitter saying otherwise. Anyway, there is an interesting clip going around showing Alvarez's corner hollering for elbows. I'm sure that wasn't what they had in mind. Eddie was also holding the cage when he threw the elbow.
  13. Veterans Speak Out Against The Militarization Of Sports

    I've got a PhD, but thanks. Here are two lessons for you: (1) "hysterical" and (2) thins = plural; therefore "is" should be "are". Also, if you say you care about plusses (which I don't), you should care about the fact that you have more because you post more. As a ratio, I look better (but again, I don't care). Its funny that you care though. As a libertarian, you should care more about individuality and not define yourself by how others see you. I believe that you should take taxpayers money and spend it on singing an anthem. Why do you believe that we should steal money from people to sing an anthem at a sporting event?

    LOL: I can actually pick apart why what you're saying is wrong. You can't say the same thing about me; all you've got are basement jokes and delusion
  15. ***The UFC/MMA THREAD***

    155 is so stacked. Would be happy to see another division in between 155 and 170.
