    This tweet about a retiring staffer reminded me of the existence of the underground trolley system below Capitol Hill. It connects all the office buildings and the Capitol. Back in my HS/college days I spent full days riding that thing between various House and Senate committees on debate research missions. All of that shit was printed and free and I probably took several hundred pounds of it. Back then anyone could just walk into any of the buildings, grab the elevator to the basement, and ride the free trolley for miles. Had to give up your seat if any Reps/Sens wanted it. Also you could eat at the Congressional cafeterias and get haircuts at the barber shop. I doubt any of that is accessible to the public any more. Fun times.

    Pretty good performance from Mariota, until that nearly-killer interception.
    And classic Chargers to needlessly take a sack on 3rd and short and then miss the long fg.

      After watching the Raiders start QBs named Matt McGloin and Connor Cook in their last few playoff games I endorse paying for a quality backup. They won’t make the playoffs, but still

        Mixed feelings. Would really have liked them to get into a playoff game, but that defense would never survive the postseason.

        I am always interested in how certain teams can never seem to do certain things. The Defense here is one of the best examples. It doesnt matter the coach, the city, the owner, the scheme.

      Chris Townsend is going to have quite the hangover in the morning. They could use a rushing game, but were pretty impressive otherwise. San Jose State was competitive in the 80s (they used to play both Cal and Stanford every year and held their own; looking it up they beat Cal 4/7 from 1981-1987) but they really fell off the map after that; I thought they were going to drop football entirely.

      I hope they get a decent bowl game. A number of power-conference teams that are eligible for bowls have opted out so that ought to move the undefeated Mountain West champions up a few notches.

    The Trump Campaign filed a cert petition with SCOTUS today that:

    -Challenges three decisions of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania that were handed down in October and November, yet asks for expedited briefing to finish on Christmas Eve because “if this matter is not timely resolved, not only Petitioner, but the Nation as a whole may suffer injury from the resulting confusion.”

    -Cites as authority an article from the Epoch Times, the “United Nations Declaration of Principles for International Election Observation,” and a “summary of disputes arising out of six key swing states [] recently published by Peter Navarro, Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, in his personal capacity.”

            You’re right that recent history suggests no action is so outrageous that it would drive voters (or most federal elected GOPers) to renounce Trump.

            That said, between this, a possible stimulus veto, and January’s electoral vote floor challenge, not to mention pardons for himself and his kids and a truly despicable array of criminals, there is a non-zero chance that there might finally be a meaningful break. GOP senators are going to be forced into a reckoning, and folks like Mitch are smart enough to know that works best if they all do it at once.

      Yikes. Glad you are OK, but I’m sure it’s still scary.
      And you should probably check that the kegerator down there is still in working order.

        I went after him with it, but he ran off.

      OH my goodness. I’m so glad you’re ok. I walked in on an intruder in our house last year, but he didn’t see me. Thankfully he had closed a door in our dining room to keep Figgy out of his way, and the minute I saw that door closed (which I think has been closed about 10 times in the 17 years we’ve lived here,) I grabbed Figs and hightailed it right out of there.

      That was unsettling, but I can’t imagine how scary if I’d come face to face and he’d have had a gun. So glad you’re all OK.

      Follow up: a couple of nights later there was an attempt on a neighbor’s house, again they tried to kick the back door in, and again as soon as there was a response they fled.

      Weird coda: another couple of days later neighbors started getting cold-called about selling their houses.

    My turn.
    It looks like (well, sounds like) someone stole the catalytic converter from mrs. a’s Prius, parked in our driveway, last night (or some time since she last drove it).

      That sucks. Apparently Prius’s are the model of choice these days. Floor jack, sawzall, done in under two minutes.

      uhg, that sucks. that is very very common. I think there is something you can do to secure it. I think about doing that with mine, but since I have a garage, it’s a low priroity.

      I have $5. No I don\'t.

      consider getting a cat shield. a lot of times the theft is just springing a trap to get you to buy a new one and they come for that one too.

      That happened to my former neighbor a few weeks back. They also have a Prius.

    Meanwhile, in Spain, crime also rages

    Somebody stole two Iberico hams with the street value of $800

    I still have to get used to the Bills playing in prime time slots all the time

      Fake crowd noise at Belicheat Stadium not only drowns out the announcers on my sound mix (ESPN should be able to fix that) but is apparently loud enough that Josh Allen was holding his helmet against his ears to hear the OC’s play call when the Bills were down inside the 10 yard line.

      I haven’t watched that much NFL this year and don’t know that much about either the Bills or the Rams. I wonder, if all the NFL GMs were polled, how this would turn out: If you could sign either Jared Goff or Josh Allen to a 2021-2025 contract for the exact same amount of money, which would you pick?

      Playing in prime time.
      Winning in prime time.
      Sweeping the pats.
      Winning the division/hosting a playoff game.

      Dare I hope for playoff wins?

      That sounds ominous – what’s happening in Stuttgart?

    • elcroata elcroata Dec 29,2020 11:01 pm || Up

      Thanks, my family is mostly on the island and in the capital, so they are fine. I have friends in the area, and they are uninjured. That’s the best news, as some of them have lost their homes.
      It’s been a shit year, with the third quake already. The first one was in March, not as strong (5.2) but very close to Zagreb. Nice thing in all of this is people coming together – there are hundreds of apartments that people rent in the winter on the coast being given for free, people going to Petrinja to help…

        It keeps shaking, by the way. This morning there were three new ones, all about 4.7
