    Yup, because Trump's Presidency all hinges upon what participants in the politics thread in the OT section of a baseball message board in a foreign country think of him, and Terminator is his only supporter.

    Yeah with no markings on the folders those were definitely not working documents.

    But I can't tell if the pages were blank or not, you can't see enough of them IMO. Also, it doesn't matter that they aren't legal size, 99.99% of the documents I use for work are normal size. Could have just told his assistant to print all the blank forms and put them in folders to show the shear amount of paperwork that needs to be done.

    Oh sorry, I didn't see you ask an earlier question! More than happy to answer. The audition in October went I think pretty well, now it's just a matter of waiting for a call. I am in the contestant pool for 18 months, and they could call on me any time with 3 weeks notice. If it's a no, they won't tell me; they just won't call. I'm not eligible to take the entry test again until my 18 months is over (approximately April 2018). I'm not actively studying right now, but I am watching the show as much as possible to keep my skill up. I have yet to see anybody that I auditioned with on the show, but that's not surprising because there is a 3 month gap between taping and airing, and I doubt they did any filming over the holidays. If I don't get a call by the Summer, maybe then I'll start giving up hope... but then again, I took the test in January 2016 and didn't get an audition callback until October, so these things can take awhile. They probably have a long list of people they want to cast and/or have already scheduled, and I have no visibility into that process.

    So yeah, just sitting, waiting. Could be a year or more.

    CNN report was "spot on" hahaha.. So it looks like McCain managed to slip this unsubstantiated report in with the rest but there's a reason why no one else was willing to touch this story.. It's literally a "synopsis of the memos released by Buzzfeed" which was collected by a private investigator who "was funded by groups and donors supporting Hillary Clinton."

    CNN has reviewed a 35-page compilation of the memos, from which the two-page synopsis was drawn. The memos have since been published by Buzzfeed. The memos originated as opposition research, first commissioned by anti-Trump Republicans, and later by Democrats.
    His investigations related to Mr. Trump were initially funded by groups and donors supporting Republican opponents of Mr. Trump during the GOP primaries, multiple sources confirmed to CNN. Those sources also said that once Mr. Trump became the nominee, further investigation was funded by groups and donors supporting Hillary Clinton.

    Wow that's quite the process. Well hopefully you get it! Would be fun to watch that episode.

    Would also be cool for the board to have a real life celebrity to combat Roy Firestone.

    I'll make a post in the TV thread if I get booked. Fingers crossed. I got Final Jeopardy right last night and all three contestants got it wrong. Suck an egg, poindexters!

    After thinking about it some more, I'm actually glad Buzzfeed released the dossier. I know their reasoning is garbage and their intent is to likely hurt Trump. But with CNN being vague with regard to this ridiculous report of "Russian blackmail on Trump" at least we can read it for ourselves. I know that some people who hate Trump will likely use it against him by taking it to be true but at least everyone else can now see how ridiculous it actually is. That's much better than CNN continuing to float this secret Russian blackmail stuff without providing any details. 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).
    "We don't have to plan for a rebuild. But all 30 teams have to stay agile, and have to understand that we're dealing with human beings, and these assets to organizations are human and change and evolve. I think what we've tried to do is become more flexible and agile, and to sustain championships is to build from within."

    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.

    DOJ looking into the whole Clinton email thing to see if the FBI did something wrong in how they handled the investigation.

    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.
