        • Trump has a clean record of never having campaigned for anyone who lost.... which I assume is why he hasn’t done a single campaign rally in Virginia despite (or perhaps because of) Republicans facing losing their last footholds in the state.

          • @drinkingpony There’s 100% a path to re-election that doesn’t involve Virginia, which is why I’m confused why he’s targeting this state. He’s planning to offset potential losses in PA, WI, and especially MI by flipping Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire, Virginia, and New Mexico. Problem is Clinton won three of those states by 5% or more and they only got more Democratic in elections after that. Realistically I could see him winning New Hampshire and maybe Nevada, which is TECHNICALLY enough assuming he loses the Great Lakes and wins Maine’s second congressional district, but it’s not at all a comfortable margin, and Democrats winning even one more electoral vote (ie by winning Nebraska’s 2nd congressional district) would screw him. His best path to victory is maintaining states he already won, not winning new ones, and going after the swing states that went for Clinton is a very weird move.

          • @mrmattimation Ohkay, I think I found the sore spot right then and there.

            > "best path to victory is maintaining states already won, not winning new ones,"

            That is way too much true to the whole idea of political ideologies eating themselves once they get more and more totalitarian. That is "Back your base !" "Back Your Base !" "BACK YOUR OWN FRIGGIN BASE !" untill you have alienated everyone that was not already part of the in-group by the first time those words were chanted.

            Back to modern day America. No group is going to win without the support of the people who feel no strong affiliation and rather let the policies ( or gut ) speak to them. Hell, the Rust Belt voted surprisingly Trump after 2 election cycles of "Hope".

            Not to say I would not be surprised that in the campaign office they jokingly talk about 'It is not about winning, it is about sending a message' while giving it their best Michael Caine impression.

            But it honestly sometimes is, just about sending a message.

          • @drinkingpony It’s all in state leans really. If Trump doesn’t win Wisconsin, he can’t win Michigan, and if he can’t win Michigan, he can’t win Virginia, if he doesn’t win Virginia, he can’t win Colorado, etc, etc. Once you lose one state it becomes a lot harder to win states that lean further from you, not impossible, but harder.

              I remember reading about some guy who had made a MCU-Wall, containing the DVD cover for every Marvel Superhero movie ever released, complaining about how he did not really like one particular movie but was still deadset on getting the thing for his wall since else his collection would be incomplete ( this was years ago )

              Extreme fans gonna extreme fan I guess.

              Hell, kinda reminds me of this 2 hour long thing of some guy who was harassing a movie critic on Discord for a debate for his opinion on a movie was SO WRONG he simply had to correct the narrative, or at least attempt to, it was a total fail and is probably one of the best examples of how to learn from other people's mistakes ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/875292 ) Its quite humorous at times, but I am not sure if I can recommend it unless if you got 2 hours to waste.

DEBATE ME !" ) had to admit that the movie just was not that defendable, or even good. But then he said "But you are still going to get the blueray/dvd right" and was promptly laughed at in a "Haha, but why tho ? We dislike/hate the movie"

                  • Star wars news : Cnet made an article called "Star Wars has never been better, thanks to Disney". But if you read it there is an entire section of the article that do nothing but praise things that either just came out or are still in the pipeline.

                    Then you read the comments and the most upvoted one just JUMPS at the opportunity to say "Oh [editor], I just love your article. [ ... ] I just love how all the toxic comments prove your point"

                    Meanwhile all I can think of is. The failure of Solo. The total halt of Star Wars Story movies. Creative freedom was being called to a complete halt by LucasArts. Toy Sales are down the drain. Galaxy's edge is effectively 'empty'. Ryan Johnson did not get his trilogy. D&D told no to Star Wars in favour of Netflix. Rise of Skywalker is STILL being worked on. And I am not even going to touch the whole 'Star Wars Adventures' thing while making Leia a 'woke woman'

                    But wait, I think it is a Disney Shill Plant, after all, it is Cnet. And who owns Cnet ?

                    • @adiwan Solo was mediocre at best, but lets agree to disagree. You are right regarding being too close to TLJ though. But then again we are pretty much talking about the mother of all cataclysmic events that drove the fandom in twain.

                      If the people were not so split on TLJ like they were, then things like 'fandom fattigue' never got invented and we probably would not have much negative stuff to say about Solo.

                      Well, other than the directors of Solo being fired at 90% completion of the movie over 'creative differences' and the thing going out of budget by several dozen millions. The 'news' that comes out later to patch up that hole seems awfully convenient to say the least where actors speak out against the fired directors.

                      But hey, those are in the same category of people that said that Alden Ehrenreich needed on site coaching how to be more like Han Solo. I call out Nepotism. I reckon you would not have had this problem if you hired Ross Marquand ( I am kidding, a bit )

                    • @adiwan Ehmm, no ? I have a list of terribly bad good movies ( Machette, Iron Sky, Kung Fury, Hobo With a Shotgun, Sharknado, Surf Nazi's Must Die, Hercules in New York, Poultrygeist : Night of the Chicken Dead, Batman ( Clooney ) & Robin, Face/Off ) that are filled with "haha, oh my, I can not believe they did that, haha"

                      I can only guess that is what you mean with 'not very excelling but like them nontheless"

                      I also have a list of Terrible Terrible movies ( Troll 2, Birdemic, Laserblast, Cool Cat saves the kids, the frEd movies, The Last Airbender ( M Knight ) foodfight ) that make me point at the screen and make horror faces like that one scene from Body Snatchers, you know the one.

                      I mean, unless if I tone down 'like' to 'could watch it again instead of playing video games'. Then you get movies like Beverly Hills Cop, Police Academy, Showdown in Little Tokyo, Naked Gun, Die Hard ( Best Xmas movie ), Fifth Element, Starship Troopers, Liar Liar, and Wreck it Ralph

                  • Aaaaand my CNC is dead. It coughed up magic smoke. A resistor blew up while trying to troubleshoot the problem of the non-moving and squealing Z Axis. It turned out to be a coil that squealed. The motor was conveniently behind the mainboard so I misinterpreted that as a faulty motor. I bought stepper motors for nothing. I can reuse them for something else. Like making a 3D printer from scratch but it won't be anytime soon.
                    I contacted Amazon support and they offer a refund. So I bought a new one. The marketplace seller was uncooperative and didn't answered after a week of silence.
                    I just ordered a replacement that is slightly cheaper from another seller.

                        Maybe it is your lucky day. Ehmm, actually, I do not even halfway think that a PCB could cost that much unless if the name of the device is rather unknown, obscure, or less than legal.

                      • @drinkingpony Haha. No death ray. The most perplexing fact is that it was sent on October 30th. A few days ago, from China via express shipment. I looked at my bank account and nothing was out of the expected. The last thing I ordered from China were 3D printer board (that I've received) and a plushie for a relative's birthday (that I've also received). The customs office letter says that I have to bring a bill, purchase contract, or something that verifies its value and transaction. If I do nothing until the end of next week it'll be sent back. My curiosity is big enough to go to the customs office and see what it is.
