I genuinely haven't watched much this season; I'm tired of the Warriors/Cavs domination. Also, with Wade leaving Miami I decided I was going to watch Ben Simmons this season and of course he didn't even make it to the starting gate, so that was fun.

A quick scan of Trump would do that.

Glad it was you. About 36 hours ago another online community I participate in suffered through a hack which we believe to be the result of an admin's password being broken, lots of fun.

Or possibly they figure that announcing they were successful is about as good for them with the target audience of gullible idiots as actually being successful.

Awww.

Hey, if Ryan didn't share platforms with out and out racists, and if he'd had the courage to remain anti-Trump instead of trying to embrace him once he won, I might even feel slightly sorry for the guy.

I always thought it sounded vaguely derogatory. Like "old bag" or "douchebag".

It would be hilarious if Trump takes the "wiretap" thing so seriously he's insisting on face to faces for sensitive conversations.

The head of the Business Council of Australia and 33 top CEOs (including the big banks, airlines, sport leagues etc) signed an open letter to the PM today telling him to get the hell on with marriage equality.

This government has no friends anymore. It hasn't led a single poll since being elected. Unfortunately the media helped them JUST scrape in by one seat on the promise that Turnbull would totally be moderate once elected in his own right, and Australia has had huge buyer's remorse since. The government just got slaughtered by Labor in Western Australia state elections, a 13% swing or something like that in the most conservative state.

Yesterday the Premier of South Australia attended some media event where the federal Energy Minister was, along with the CEO of a gas company, and absolutely burned him at great length, to his face in front of the cameras, for the conservatives' treatment of renewable energy, climate change policy, and general assholishness. It was glorious.

When does it pick up?

We started to watch it (with an enormous tolerance for iffy sci-fi) and gave up after 15 minutes because nothing had happened but some impenetrable jargon and it was just so boring. It was like the reverse of what the first 15 minutes of a pilot needs to do.

We recently finished binging Killjoys (Alias in space!) and Travellers (Continuum in Canada... wait, hang on...).
