  1. It's certainly conceivable that one or more of the current members of the court passes away during Trump's term, leading to a court that wouldn't have kept Obergefell. I'm not saying that Trump will get two or more appointments, or that the court will see a same sex marriage case while it has that composition, but it isn't hard to imagine.
  2. It won't be that bad if you're spreading everything over 8 months, unless you have shitty busy season(s) in a public job. If you do the Becker multiple choice questions ad nauseam you'll pass.
  3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_X_syndrome XXY is a thing too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klinefelter_syndrome
  4. Male tigers get much bigger than male lions, and have a larger average weight too. Please do some research.
  5. I picked up a pair of these to play with my buddy. It seems that straight out of the box, the Keldo deck is a lot stronger than the Rayquaza deck. Is that right, or are we missing something? I'm more interested in playing inexpensive house games than getting into the meta at the moment.
  6. Do you have anything to support that, or does it just sounds like it would work? Because what you're advocating would be torture actually working. You can expect the same issues with your plan that you have with waterboarding everybody. If people give false information due to fear instead of pain, you still haven't accomplished anything. Even if enhanced interrogation does provide actionable information one percent of the time (which I haven't seen supported anywhere), you're diluting your resources with false positives.
  7. Is there a reason to believe it does work, other than a feeling that it should? Those weren't cherry picked sources, I googled "Does torture work" and used 5 of the first 6 links. The fourth link is to the Harvard catalog, for a book called "Why Torture Doesn't Work". Trump has suggested that we use enhanced interrogation, more than once. What advantage does Gitmo hold over another detention center?
  8. Do you think that torture works? Evidence suggests that it doesn't, for intelligence gathering anyway. If there's another primary goal I'm open to the discussion, but it really doesn't look like an efficient use of resources that we could use to benefit American citizens.
  9. If anybody else has tax issues I'm happy to help. Clinton wants to increase the estate tax, Trump and Johnson say we should remove it. Does anybody have an opinion on the estate tax?
  10. Didn't realize that was legal for the event, thanks.
  11. Why? The only prominent interaction I can think of is Farfa and banishing floating BA monsters.
  12. Foolish Burial and Mathmatician can both make this by sending Nimble Angler. The Nimbles aren't Aqua unfortunately bit there's still synergy. Or not, since apparently in needs Aqua materials.
  13. There weren't any protesters.   Honestly the whole thing was kinda uneventful. 
  14.   I'll be at a rally later tonight, definitely asking this if the opportunity comes up.
  15. Depending on how much you want to rely on Galaxy Soldier, you could also play Thunder Dragon, Galaxy Expedition and Galaxy Zero.   Thunder Dragon might be not be worth it if you have plenty of other Lights that you want to play.   Galaxy Expedition is dead without Wizard or Soldier in hand, but it lets you pull the last Soldier out of the deck for an immediate rank 5, without having to discard for the soldier you just searched (and having to pass on the search effect).   Galaxy Zero gives you additional targets for all the Wizards that you're already playing, and gives you a decent first turn play (Put Wizard in the grave through it's effect or Galaxy Soldier, make Pleiades, play Galaxy Zero. Then you can bounce Zero, and search again with Wizard).   Galaxy Cyclone is another searchable card, but you have to commit your normal summon to search it, and play Soldier first too, depending on your hand.   Karakuri tuners are neat too, specifically Strategist.
