    Canadian Politics

    I didn't think we had a thread for this. Is Trudeau this out of touch or does he just not care?

    Well it’s Canada Day! Hopefully the last post in this thread is the Jets hoisting the Cup. Enjoy the frenzy!

    The Mysteries Thread

    https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/steven-avery-kathleen-zellner-accuse-prosecution-destroy-evidence-795080/ Also, one of the prosecutors accidentally left a voice mail for Zellner, thinking it was one of his colleagues, advising him to not respond to Zellner until they get a chance to see if the pelvic bone is still there. Crazy. Thats probably an over-turning of the case right there.

    The Mysteries Thread

    I love a good mystery, true crime etc. Here are a couple recent ones for discussion: The lead investigator in the JonBenet Ramsey revealed some new information about the case of the little girl who was found dead on Christmas Day 20 years ago. Among the new information, JonBenet was hit on the head and knocked unconscious, then strangled to death 2 HOURS later. So the killer would have had to hang out in the house for hours. Also, when they asked Patsy (the mother) to provide a handwriting sample and specifically asked her to write $180,000, curiously she wrote it out in long hand (one hundred eighty thousand). Was she trying to avoid writing the amount and giving herself away? The Ramseys were cleared years ago, but suspicion lingers. JonBenet would be 25 years old now. AND Four police officers rushing to an overturned car in an icy Utah river say they all heard the same thing: a mysterious female voice calling out “Help,” from inside the vehicle. But the driver of the car was dead and her 18-month-old daughter, while still alive, couldn’t have been the speaker. It was a mystery that continues to haunt the officers – and may never be explained.

    The TV Thread

    Second season of Orange is the New Black launched today. Anyone else into this? I have to admit to being a bit of a TV/movie-phile. I generally buy Blu-Rays when there's a movie I want to see rather than just watching it on PPV or In-demand (I like to collect). Premium TV has really been leading a creative resurgence in recent years, probably dating back to The Sopranos. Its nice that Netflix has become a legitimate competitor for HBO (which puts out some really great shows like Sopranos, Deadwood, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood etc). House of Cards was tremendous. While cable channels like AMC are getting in on the act, I annoys me a bit. The Walking Dead would be so much better on Netflix or HBO where they could truly appeal to adults (HBO passed on The Walking Dead when Thomas Jane was attached). As for Orange, it took me a few episodes to get into last season but Im looking forward to banging out a few episodes tonight. As an aside, for you Trekies, it was recently the 20th anniversary of the finale of TNG, one of the best Series' Finales in TV history.

    Saw chatter that vegas didnt want a rental. Will they over-pay to keep Stone from Winnipeg?

    Why is your one example proof of your perspective but opposing examples arent proof of theirs?

    Thats a good point. Without Stone & Dzingle, and the rest of their expiring contracts, they sit at $47 million for next season against a floor of around $60 million. That might explain their big offer to Stone of $10 million/year since they have to spend it anyway. But yeah, they'll sign a few players of need but will likely have to take on some contracts too. But they also dont have a lot of contract room (1-2?)

    How absurd. You go to a shady massage parlour where they hold immigrant women in poor conditions against their will. Their hygiene described as "minimal". You're rich!! Just hook up with a high class call girl who works because she wants to (and makes a lot of money). So ridiculous. Throw the book at him.

    Probably gives us some insight into what Ottawa wants for Stone. 2 first round picks, 2 prospects. I actually wonder now if Jets do get Stone, if they also get Dzingle as a way of balancing out the load we send back.

    Interesting as they had initially stood behind him. The details of the evidence laid out yesterday were pretty damning though. I caught a brief moment of this on CNN last night and the host had a debate between a left-leaning guy and someone who worked for Trump (who traditionally makes little sense). But not only was he winning the argument, the CNN host was really putting the boots to the lefty as well. Its a great example of needing to look at your position through a lens of "if this was reversed, how would I feel." Smollett did a major dis-service to his cause (assuming the evidence against him is solid).

    Yup. There is a clear agenda. Its worked in other threads. I hesitated to even post here for that reason. But to be honest, I liked the points being made by Eternal and some of the discussion.
