Early voting packed here in Central Florida

Looks like a huge turnout, which is unheard of here for early voting in a mid term. The polls were packed this morning so I came back at 4pm and it wasn't so bad. Poll workers said they were caught off guard by the huge turnout and they had to add extra stations.

Re: Jamal Khashoggi: Trump suggests 'rogue killers' to blame

You know, the thing that stands out for me that no one has commented on, is that the Saudis have publicly admitted that they have a guy in Turkey ON SPEED DIAL who they can rely on to dispose of dead bodies.... You know, just in case.

Re: Anyone playing COD Black Ops 4?

Keep in mind I mainly play private matches with friends and bots, although I have played a lot of public games to get the feel for it (I don't really like playing with children, cheaters and trolls though). I also like to play Zombies and I like what they've done with that. I'll paste a bunch of obs...

Amid skepticism, Saudi official provides another version of Khashoggi death

Something a bit closer to the truth I'd guess, except one has to ask why a forensic expert was included in a team that was only supposed to convince him to return to Saudi Arabia.

Re: First Man mini review

You know, I'm really sick of hearing nonsense about that. Why MUST the flag planting be shown? You DO see the flag on the moon, you just don't see it planted. There was plenty of flags around, and it was plenty pro-American. Watch the film. In the context of what was happening at that time in the fi...

How-To Geek: Windows 10’s Next Update Will Make Your PC Faster, Thanks to Better Spectre Fixes

Of course, if you're like me, you've disabled the Spectre mitigation since it really isn't much of a threat vector for home PCs. Still, nice that they're working on it.

Jet Li Rejected Starring in ‘The Matrix’ Sequels Because He Didn’t Want to Lose Ownership of His Martial Arts Moves

“It was a commercial struggle for me,” Li said, “I realized the Americans wanted me to film for three months but be with the crew for nine. And for six months, they wanted to record and copy all my moves into a digital library. By the end of the recording, the right to these moves would go to them....

If You Knew Khashoggi, You’d Be Outraged Too

One of the big reason this has become as big a story as it is, people don't realize that Kashoggi was MUCH more than a reporter. Almost everyone on capital hill and in major corporations knew him personally. Because of his insider connections, and previous experience working in the Saudi government,...

Re: Jamal Khashoggi: Trump suggests 'rogue killers' to blame

Aaaannnnddd.... The Saudis, after defiantly claiming for 18 days that Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, and taking offense at all these accusations, now they admit he DID die in there, but only because he (a 60 year old man) entered the consulate and started a fist fight. Maybe he started the f...

First Man mini review

Saw it at the Ocala IMAX and I have to say that I found the IMAX experience disappointing, which affected my experience. The movie was NOT shot in IMAX except for when they're on the surface of the moon. I understand why they did this - it's a dramatic artistic choice that makes the surface of the m...
