Re: Twenty Questions - Game 68

Did her husband have a knighthood? 13. No. Her husband doesn't have a knighthood and it's not Jane Austin? Then the only person it could possibly be is Hilary Mantel or the Queen Mother, and I don't think the Queen Mother's passion for writing erotic literature is widely known... Is it Hilary Mantel?

Re: US Midterm Elections

If you view the Republicans as a united monolithic bloc vote you'd have a point, but what we have in reality is a Republican party about to engage in a titanic power struggle. Speaking of monolithic bloc votes, the reason that Georgia has a runoff rule and could potentially see the Democrats lose th...

Re: US Midterm Elections

Well... we're dangerously close to getting the ideal result. Who'd have thought it? What, pray tell, is your ideal? Divided government...both sides will need to compromise to get anything done. Largely no BS complaints of voter fraud. It has been a quiet day. Also Trump didn't have a good night vs....

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 66

I would argue this is a subjective question. What may be a left winger to Jamie might to me be a rabid right winger. Or vice versa of course. The general mainstream media view would present her as left wing, I think the answer I have given is fine. I don't doubt your answer I just think this sort o...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 66

I suppose one's opinions on Communists will be largely shaped by family history and personal experience. Someone who is from one of the more infamous former Communist states, for example, would be understandably very anti Communist. But yes, as you say, very much one for the politics forum

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 66

So it's a left wing living (or undead) likely Yank (but possibly just New World) lass (or at least someone not identifying as male).

Does she speak Spanish?

Re: US Midterm Elections

It's either a sad reflection on the state of American political engagement or a sad reflection on the state of the forum. There seems to be an unprecedented lack of energy about it all, and with the world in the state it's in you'd think there'd be a sense of urgency

Re: US Midterm Elections

Which is remarkable considering it was only a handful of weeks ago that the Democrats were hoping to ride the abortion backlash and hold on to power. It does seem to be a particularly thin period for US politics. It may play rather differently to a domestic audience, but if you asked me to list Bide...

Re: Proof God is real

But I will answer the question now that I have seen it asked: If an omnipotent / omniscient God existed, he would know what he needed to do to change my mind, and he would easily be capable of doing it. To date, either (a) he does not exist, or (b) he has not done it. Or (c) you're not being comple...

Ok, but your response is "god is fair because what if sometimes you got to be Elon Musk and have your every stupid whim amused, and other times you were the abused child who commits suicide at age 12" I personally think that Elon Musk has an awful life, but that's beside the point.

Re: Proof God is real

For the record, I do not believe that there are other universes. I don't know why you think that "there are almost certainly others". Once again you are claiming something I simply did not say. There's no point in discussing anything with you if you can't be bothered to even attempt to understand w...
