    I don't believe in secret codes here, but, why the hell did the Mango Mussolini wish what's-her-name well? He never wishes a woman well, but he makes an exception for a suspected child sex trafficker?

    I suppose the scums of the earth have to stick together to make it in this life...
    Was Trump's comment a response to a reporters question? If so then it makes sense for him not to pre-judge Maxwell before her trial. Reporters can't expect Trump to walk into every trap they set up for him.

    If there was any hidden meaning in his answer it would have to be his hope she isn't found dead under suspicious circumstances. He could also have been alluding to the fact there are people who do not wish her well because they would have something to lose if she decides to name names.

    Game Id 13781282

    This game can go on forever and ever, always as a draw, but the opponent refuses the draw offer, and continues playing, on and on, with no intentions of accepting a draw result?

    How can I force him or her to accept the draw offer, or if not then how do I end the game, without just resigning it?

    Anyone know? Thanks
    His rating suggests he doesn't recognize it's a draw, so I suggest playing on for another 10 or 20 moves. He might realise at that point he can't win, or possibly become frustrated and make a game losing move.

    I've offered draws that were refused and then went on to win... it happens.

    The war is over, Grandpa. Those thousands of Confederate dollars you have stashed under your mattress are worthless. The North won, and the slaves have been set free to exercise control over their own destiny.
    So get over yourself... Charles Manson wanted to start a race war, and you know what happened to him.

    Like it or not, for good or evil, everyone's life matters.

    I shouldn't have started thinking about time because now I feel even dumber than before. The more I question, the less I know. I should just stick to making good coffee and carrot muffins.
    If it makes you feel any better you're not alone.
    Universal agreement is rare and there's plenty of "dumb" to go around.

    When they think they've finally figured out all the waves and particles, they will scratch their heads and ask "now what the heck is TIME and what is TIME made of?"
    Drat, I still have trouble explaining what I think time is.
    First of all time is not made up of anything, such as little time particles. It's possible a quantum physicist might disagree, but I'd probably be at a loss to understand the particle-wave duality of time no matter how well it's explained.
    That was a wee joke by the way. And yes, I know... VERY wee.

    Time is motion. And motion can be defined as obects continuously changing position in relation to other objects.
    If there was no motion there would be no time. And if time wasn't variable (if it was a constant) there would be no warping of spacetime... in other words, no gravity.
    Einstein calling spacetime a 'fabric' was a brillant analogy. Imagine this 'fabric' being woven from threads made of two different fibers... space, and time. One of the fibers is variable and the other isn't.

    Now imagine tossing this fabric into the wash. One of the fibers shrinks but the other remains the same length. Because the two fibers are woven together the fabric becomes warped. Curvatures in spacetime are due to time variations, but this is where things can get confusing because some people will tell you gravity causes the time variations which in turn causes curvatures in spacetime.

    Not really because your making stuff up, who has claimed that anyone’s life doesn’t matter?
    More specifically when did I claim that someone’s life didn’t matter. Again you can pretend not to realise that ‘black lives matter’ was coined in the atmosphere of of unarmed black men being disproportionately unlawfully killed by police officers who were getting to carry on ...[text shortened]... reasonable non black people got that without having it explained to them again and again and again.
    ...you don’t get that it’s meant to be read as ‘black lives matter‘ (too)but most reasonable non black people got that without having it explained to them again and again and again.
    Ohhh, it reads as 'black lives matter' ! Okay, thanks for explaining that.

    Now if you could just explain how Black Lives Matter doesn't mean All Black Lives Matter this conversation actually has a (slim) chance of getting somewhere.

    And you can pretend not to realise how the slogan has morphed into an excuse for causing mayhem for those (including blacks) who don't deserve having their lives and livelihoods disrupted.
    Is it okay if any blacks have been negatively impacted by the BLM movement? Do their lives matter? Or is it easier to ignore the consequences and pretend you're arguing in favor of the "greater good"?

    Yeah that was my point, it’s a truism that all lives cannot matter unless everyone’s life matters.
    If black lives matter but not all lives matter, then whose life in your opinion does not matter?

    See how that works? Like it or not, two can play at this game. If you want to pretend your position is unassailable that's fine, but not everyone can be fooled into thinking it's okay for protesters to 'inadvertently' provide cover for destructive riots. Peaceful protesters are bemoaning the fact that rioters have highjacked their protest, as though one has nothing to do with the other..

    Rioters always show up whenever there's a 'peaceful' protest. But I'm supposed to believe what... there is no correlation between protests and destructive rioting? If you are black and own property in downtown Portland, does your life and livelihood matter? Apparently not... the mob are equal opportunity destructors of lives and livelihoods.

    Yeah... do you comprehend where the sentiment comes from?
    And why expanding the definition (which in itself is quite correct) deminishes from the objective?
    do you comprehend where the sentiment comes from?
    Yes. It's a reaction to a perceived bias regardless of whether that bias exists or not. It erroneously assumes an invisible strawman saying black lives don't matter.
    It's not a definition, it's a three word slogan. It's designed to give you the impression they are responding to people who don't believe they matter. And if you aren't stupid enough to be led along by the nose with this nonsense, then you are one of the villains who don't think they matter.

    See how that works?

    Well that’s just a truism surely, unless you believe that black people are not actually people.
    I’m jumping on this without knowing whether or not you agree with du Plessis so apologies if it seems a bit snappy.
    If all lives matter then it follows that black lives matter.
    If anyone's life doesn't matter, then all lives do not matter.

    Regardless of how you feel about someone, 'all' does not exclude anyone.

    Or maybe the second burning-down of the White House.

    They kept 7 million people of color from voting in 2016 to secure Trump's victory, and I said then that they would have to increase that to 20 to 25 million kept from voting in 2020 to keep him there. That many people not allowed to vote isn't going to go unnoticed this time.

    How were 'they' able to do this?
