Re: Madrid QF: (3)Rafael Nadal def. (10)Grigor Dimitrov 6-3 6-4

Cute nickname for heavy topspin but these are weak excuses. Everyone knows that skill/timing OHBH guys (ie, not heavy OHBH guys like Stan and Almagro) have tremendous difficulty against Nadal off low...

Re: Madrid QF: (3)Rafael Nadal def. (10)Grigor Dimitrov 6-3 6-4

Can't really fault Nadal for playing the style that's won him nine RG's; he'd be stupid not to on clay. Dimitrov's Gasquet tactics however essentially just lengthen points and allow Nadal to gain...

Re: Which player is the luckiest with the draws? [2015 Edition]

A Golden Swing clay 250 nonetheless. You make your own luck by entering tournaments like that. :lol:

Re: Describe yourself politically

You need to add 'liberal' to 'democracy' to give it the meaning I presume you want it to have here. Democracy in it's crudest form can essentially be mob rule and the system is no guarantor of...

Re: Tattoos and piercings, your opinion on them?

Discreet piercings and tattoos are no problem. I do however think the female body looks best with neither; also prefer women with minimal makeup.

That said, a good personality behind a pretty face...

Re: Describe yourself politically

I've actually never been under that illusion that France, or much of Catholic Europe for that matter, is especially socially liberal even when taking their secularism into account. Northern Europe...

Re: Describe yourself politically

^ This is probably true. A problem is that the FN has power even if they don't actually hold office: their poll numbers provide great incentive for politicians like Sarkozy to move far right on...

Re: Describe yourself politically

^ The two round run-off certainly makes it difficult for FN getting the French presidency but I honestly don't know what to expect from French voters these days. They vote in a neo-liberal right wing...

Re: Describe yourself politically

I specifically disavowed an example of unwarranted casual use of the 'racist' label in the post you're responding to here. 'Racist' does mean very little when used as a broad insult against a group...

Re: 2001: A Space Odyssey discussion thread

To be fair, Richards actually does have the necessary range to play a character in 2001. :p

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Whoops. Sorry for the unwarranted nasty response. I hadn't had the pleasure of learning about my true motivations on page 7 of that thread before responding to your post. :lol:

Re: Describe yourself politically

Ok, so right-wingers can be as extreme as they like around the world but the center-left is fair game for criticism. Got it.

And you really should learn more about the far right in Europe...

Slimy accusation. The far right in Europe is small potatoes on a global scale but I have no problem condemning them out of hand just as I condemn scumbag regimes with actual power elsewhere in the...

Re: Describe yourself politically

The fall of the Euro monarchies was closer to WWI rather than post-WWII and modern leftist economics basically grew up and took root between those periods. A century ago would be a better date to use...

Re: Describe yourself politically

A couple points regarding things on the last page:

First, I do think the graph is a bit skewed to the left economically. There should be questions specifically about state ownership, union rights,...

Re: Best Vietnam War Movie

The first half of FMJ might be the best thing Kubrick ever did. D'Onofrio is just incredible and proof that Kubrick isn't incapable of directing actors. I hesitate to call it a 'Vietnam war movie'...
