Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

Truth be told, I would absolutely approve of Congress doing the same exact thing. And you're right, they most likely won't because both sides will not try to compromise on their positioning in any way. I agree, there's no chance of this happening. Even if Congress did pass a law making abortion leg...

Re: New Board UI testing

As others have said though I expect it's about what you're used to, since when people who only use other sites always dilike our colors etc. ^^^^^ This. When I first saw the new UI, I didn't like it that much, for the reasons others have given: similar colors, colors too bland, weird icons. After p...

Re: Schadenfreude

Crypto is just the modern version of a pyramid scheme. It's not, entirely. There's an element of a pyramid scheme to it. There's an element of tax evasion, too. But there are also true believers driving the technology forward. Blockchain technology does seem to have some useful applications, for ex...

Re: 20 Questions - Round 10

Brainstorming possible sports/entertainment (not a question):
Auto racing fits, not sure about dancing (seems more entertainment, less sport). Boxing/wrestling? Track & field? Other Olympic sports?

Re: 20 Questions - Game #8

I have to agree with the Questionmaster on the fame point. The Queen was hugely in the spotlight after Princess Diana was killed in 1997. They even made a movie about it ("The Queen," 2006).

Re: Minor update changelog

Caching for game listing counts, order by pot size by default Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I'm finding this default can't be overridden? If I change the search criteria to GameID, Descending, the system ignores that and displays results for a pot size search. Separately, I would think GameI...

Re: 20 Questions - Game #6 - RULE CHANGE

Actually, I just re-read the summary biography. It does mention his writings. My bad there. ("He has also authored or co-authored more than 110 books.")

Re: 20 Questions - Game #6 - RULE CHANGE

Whoops, sorry about that. I didn't know he wrote books, and the summary page of his official website didn't mention it.

Re: 20 Questions - Game #6 - RULE CHANGE

Alright, I see I have some catching up to do. But a voice in my head (probably my intuition, but who knows nowadays who's in someone's head) says 'bring this name out, say the name' so my free guess is Nelson Mandela. It's not Nelson Mandela. For one thing, this person is still alive. But your guess...
