    The judge should be given the electric chair for the outlandish jury instructions.   The judge not only did not force the prosecution to define a crime, the judge left it completely up to each individual juror to pick a crime.  It could be federal.  It could be state.  It could be local.  Whatever.   

    And the jurors don't even have to agree with the crime is.  One could think Trump intended to commit tax fraud.  One could think Trump wanted to commit election interference.  One could think Trump might have wanted to jaywalk.  It does not matter.  As long these jurors think some crime was involved they can convict Trump.   It does not matter that the state Court has zero authority to enforce election laws.  It does not matter that the jurors were not given instructions explaining what all the elements of those crimes are.  It does not matter that Trump was given no due process to be able to defend himself against every crime in the book or that the prosecution is not required to prove all the elements of any of these mysterious crimes,  and that Trump the crime does not have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.  This case is an absolute joke and a complete and total abuse of the justice system in a lame attempt to influence the election by an absurdly partisan judge.

    How would you like to be charged with having committed a crime and the cop and the prosecutor never had to tell you what the crime was?   If each jury member thought there might be some crime you might have committed you could spend 30 years in jail?   Of course, this is just Trump so none of the bootlickers will say anything.

    I also think prequels don't do that well typically unless they're tied to some monster IP.  I'll be a movie that took place after Fury Road and continued the story, not necessarily with the same exact characters, would have done pretty well.

    But these movies were never going to make giant BO anyway. As well liked as Fury Road was it only made $150M domestic and $225M international.

    They needed a sequel that was grander in scope and said something about the state of the world today. Not politically but philosophically

    fair comments all.

    and yeah it is tough to expect a rookie to lead the team in receiving.  if he gets 800 yards and 5-6 TD as a rookie I'd say its a very successful rookie campain, but its not WR1 production.

    its likely palmer as the leading WR though there is an outside chance Chark steps up.    but Palmer has to be the highest odds to thrive.

    Quentin Johnson is still a dark horse.   going into his second year,  it feels like we still dont know who he is as a pro yet.

    Johnson was at the absolute floor of how you can do in your rookie season and still turn into something as a WR. So it’s possible and I am intrigued, but man, he was so close to being an outright bust 🤏


  4. Hollywood expected “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” to scorch the box office over the holiday weekend. Instead, the big-budget Warner Bros. prequel iced it over.

    “Furiosa,” which cost $168 million to make, not including tens of millions of dollars in marketing costs, collected an estimated $25.6 million in the United States and Canada from Thursday night to Sunday. Box office analysts expected the film to take in about $5.4 million on Monday, for a holiday-weekend total of $31 million.

    That would be the worst Memorial Day weekend result in 43 years after adjusting for inflation — ever since “Bustin’ Loose,” a comedic drama starring Richard Pryor, collected $24 million in 1981. (Box office records exclude 2020, when most theaters were closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.)

    The franchise’s previous chapter, “Mad Max: Fury Road,” took in $45.4 million in 2015, or roughly $61 million in today’s dollars — and that was without the benefit of a holiday weekend.

     

     

     

    Gee, I don’t know, maybe come up with an original idea for a change? :dunno:

    Thanks.  I try very hard to not accuse people who commit suicide as being selfish, as I don't think of them as being able to make a rational decision.  That's why I said "inconsiderate" in the OP, which in hindsight wasn't the best word, but I was looking for a better word than selfish, and I meant it in the denotative sense of "not considering, or not capable of considering."  It's a terrible sickness, one that would cause you to think death is better than living.

    But Worms drunk read the thread and accused me of calling her a "raging biotch" or similar, Gutter decided to troll, BeachBlade spewed out some words, and here we are.

    My first post in this thread told you that I understood where you were coming from. Yes she probably has given that son some rather focked up sh1t for life. Of course the husband will be scarred as well. My only point was, rather than just criticizing her and making yourself out as a saint for deigning to go to her funeral anyway, maybe think about how awful it must’ve been for her to resort to suicide, and also how nobody really gives a g0ddamn what you think — it’s not about you.

    But go ahead and keep ignoring the message. I don’t care. It’s my last post on the subject as we’re just going round and round here.

    About to head to this.  Woman from our gym, in her 40s, a doctor.  She had body issues:  big fakies, lots of work done on her face.  We saw her the day before she killed herself at the gym, stretching on the side of class.  

    The following day, Mother's Day, she killed herself.  She had a husband and an 11 year old son.  That poor kid is going to need therapy every year around Mother's Day.

    You must be in a really bad mental place to do something so inconsiderate of the impact on those you love:( 

    We don't know her husband that well (nor did we know her that well), but we have a close-knit gym, and we subscribe to the "always go to the funeral" philosophy.

    Very judgy, jer.

    It’s a tragedy. Nobody gives a fock what you think about it.

    It ain’t your family. It wasn’t your mom or your wife. Who knows what they’re going through but they don’t need your swooping in and offering criticisms.

    Anyway hopefully you managed to keep it in at the funeral.

    Trump is setting up to win possibly 322 electoral college votes.  Biden is losing virtually every toss-up state and is in danger of losing a few states which were considered solid Democrat states like New Mexico and New Hampshire.  

    lol Trump ain’t winning blue states. But yeah, looks like he might carry the swing states. Oh well, there’s always 🇨🇦

    I said I didn't know her that well, but we always go to the funeral.

    and I absolutely did not call her any disparaging names. I said you must be in a bad mental place to do that, especially on Mothers Day. 

    Read my posts again. 

    Jerry, we know your judgments. You do not hide them well, or even at all 


  9. Putting all the political bullsh1t and all that aside, I don’t think you’re being very charitable here jerry.

    Think how much pain you'd have to be in to do something like that. I don’t mean physical or literal pain of course, but emotional or mental. It’s unthinkable. How could your heart not go out a bit?

    Or let’s say she was just an awful person and that’s why she did it. Seems like a stretch but whatever. Think of how terrible you’d have to be and how hard that would be. I mean we’re talking borderline personality disorder or the like. And that’s a really horrible life.

    So anyway, have a little more sympathy for her, and understand the family is deeply hurting regardless, and the funeral is really for them.
