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...

Re: Describe yourself politically

Moving past the fact that you're surprising ill-informed about the political situation in a country that could potentially cause all kinds of problems for the global economy in no small part due to...

Re: Describe yourself politically

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

^ You're willing to denounce Europe's welfare state and military spending on a grand scale but a Euro country potentially supporting a racist and Nazi-fetishizing party doesn't warrant outside...

Re: Describe yourself politically

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

How exactly have political ideologies changed in the past century? Communism (and some forms of socialism) still means something like total state control of the economy while pure laissez-faire...

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'...

Out of curiosity, where did the test place you? I'm guessing it got your economic beliefs wrong?

Re: Describe yourself politically

That applies more to the y-axis here (social authoritarianism/libertarianism) and when someone says 'lefty' I assume they're talking taxation/regulation/redistribution. But yeah, the social aspect of...

Re: Describe yourself politically

Or retired with little savings/income.

Or seriously ill.

Or disabled.

Or working-class.

Or parents with limited income.

Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

You're accusing others of bullshit? :lol: You do realize that most of the board seems to dislike Miami and that the dislike goes well beyond the Fed/Nadal fanbases (Ferrer fans, power baseliner fans,...

This is just a cover for his bizarre Japanese body-pillow fetish:

Re: WWW? ATP 1000 Miami Open (Draw Discussion)

Not to mention Delpo's last good year and the beginning of Stan's peak. The years have clearly gotten steadily less competitive with 2012 marking the beginning of the decline.

Re: 2001: A Space Odyssey discussion thread

I understand why 2001 is worshiped but I personally consider it, along with Barry Lyndon, to be Kubrick at his technical best but also at his emotionally coldest. He was at the height of his...

Re: Martina Navratilova: "I would like to see faster courts and smaller rackets"

I really don't think this is going to happen and I say that has someone who would love to see a baby Nadal or two on tour. Djokovic and Nadal both benefit from the modern surfaces but they benefit...

Re: Martina Navratilova: "I would like to see faster courts and smaller rackets"

This. I generally like Navratilova's commentating but there's a bunch of ex-pros doing commentary work in the US who romanticize their own era at the expense of the modern game and she's one of them.

Re: Which language sounds more pleasant, French or Spanish?

Re: Official CPR for Masters 1000 and Grand Slams

Not sure if aces counts are the best measure here. The ball kicks up more in IW's thin desert air and this should help slow down first serves while making kicker second serves more effective (perhaps...

Re: Official CPR for Masters 1000 and Grand Slams

This. I'm no expert on the various tennis balls the tour uses but the humidity alone in Miami would make it hard for it to play at the speed of desert-based IW even if their surface actually was...

Re: Is Miami getting shafted?

I agree that this isn't a coincidence but tard bitterness isn't what it comes down to. Fed and Nadal need pace, bounce or some combo of the two to play their best. It so happens that Miami has...
