That's much better than CNN continuing to float this secret Russian blackmail stuff. It's just better to get it out there.
    I haven't looked into this much at all. What's the blackmail angle? That he has a pee fetish? I couldn't care less that he does though I get that he might care enough to be willing to pay to keep it quiet. If that's the case than it's a good thing that it's out there now (assuming of course that any of this is even true).

    Was that the early Shakespeare question? Wow, good job.

    We watch almost nightly because my kids like it. I don't know why; they're 10 and 7 and don't know jack. It might be the theme song.

    Yeah it was the Shakespeare question. Something like "This Shakespeare play with two title characters had the earliest of any of his settings." I'm paraphrasing. I could tell they were trying to lead the answer to Antony & Cleopatra, but I knew it wasn't that because Julius Caesar is set before it. Plus I was an English major so, unfortunately, I had to read Troilus and Cressida.

    Used to do this all the time at work. Walk around with a clipboard and a few sheets of paper in it and everyone still thinks you're working.

    Wow, this is a sports forum and this thread is less than a year old and has more posts than the 3-year old NHL thread.

    From what I got out of it is that someone on 4chan created a fake document that said Trump went to Russia, got a hotel and proceeded to let hookers piss on him. Apparently this information got "leaked" and the CIA and some news outlets (Buzzfeed/CNN?) got wind of it and published it.

    Yeah I get that but is that really something Russia would blackmail Trump with. Give us X or we'll tell everyone you're into pee?

    There were a multitude of claims in there. Pee fetish, sex tape, multiple meetings and contact between Team Trump and the Russians, etc. None of it has been verified. But yeah I think the worry is that Russia tells him "do what we say or we'll release the sex tape/pee fetish info/evidence of collaboration with us/etc." If they actually had some evidence of that I'd be concerned as everyone should be but until it's verified I don't think anyone should bother entertaining pee fetish theories.

    For sure. The internet has changed things for nerds. We aren't outcasts anymore. Nerd culture is in.

    Remember when there was a rumour that Rob Ford had a sex tape? That never did see the light while he was alive. That's probably for the best.
