Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump Debate #01 Review

Hillary won, but Trump didn’t lose.

Hillary Clinton won last night’s debate handily, but not by as much as she needed to.

People who are intelligent enough and well-read enough to understand what they were saying to each other are clear across the board that Hillary won.

Other people either don’t have the time or the interest to achieve this understanding, so for them, Trump wasn’t exposed as being incompetent, which is the only thing that might erode his base. Continue reading “Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump Debate #01 Review”

The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]

Unless you have a ring that turns you invisible, leave dragons alone.

Delusional Peasants

The Game of Thrones season 06 finale was well-written.

The writers spoke to something that I’ve wanted to say for a long time, but didn’t have a concrete way to put it until I saw it play out in this episode.

This episode had instance after instance after instance after instance of people thinking they had power that they never had and finding out that they didn’t have that power.

This is where a lot of people trip themselves up IRL (In Real Life). They believe in the power they don’t have.

Part of this is because of the Loser Society that we’re currently experiencing.

Everybody wants to act like people are equals, when we are not.

Everybody wants to act like winners don’t get or even DESERVE more than losers.

So you have people who attempt to claim the spoils of the winners even though they’re actually losers.

When they see other losers such as themselves get away with this, they figure they can do it too and try their luck walking the tightrope between high-rise buildings.

Halfway across….. A gust of wind pushes them off the rope and they realize that they actually needed *SKILL* to do what they were trying to do without killing themselves.

Skill they don’t have.

Meanwhile, a lot of people are serfs who are allowed free reign over “their” land until their actions run afoul of what THE KING wanted them to do, and then they get wiped out, replaced, and more serfs work that land as if the first set was never there.

That easily-replaced set of serfs perceives themselves as kings because they think that they’re self-governing.

They’re approximately as autonomous as the fish in your fishbowl.

Sure.. All the fish have to do is swim around, eat fish food, play tag with each other, look at the humans on the other side of the glass… But the human is providing their entire world. The human paid for the tank. The human pays for the electricity that runs to the tank. The human buys the food. The human puts the food in the tank.

That same human, if properly provoked, will scoop you out of that bowl and flush you down the toilet. Continue reading “The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]”

Tinder: Prep & Concepts

This is a totally new game and it’s time to learn how to play it efficiently.

Two months after writing Tinder: First Impressions, I’ve finally had the time and impetus to fill out my Tinder profile.

I live in Manhattan, so according to /www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/data-maps/nyc-population/current-future-populations.page, as of July 2014, approximately 1,636,268 people live on this island, which means approximately 818,119 women within our 13 miles:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan – Although New York County is the United States’ second-smallest county by land area (behind only Kalawao County, Hawaii), it is also the country’s most densely populated county.[16] It is also one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a census-estimated 2014 population of 1,636,268[1] living in a land area of 22.83 square miles (59.13 km2),[17] or 71,672 residents per square mile (27,673/km2). On business days, the influx of commuters increases that number to over 3.9 million,[18] or more than 170,000 people per square mile (65,600/km2). Continue reading “Tinder: Prep & Concepts”

Being Like Me Isn’t Like Being Me [HoC S01EP06-S02EP02]

Even if you fully understand what I’m doing.. Which you don’t, because nobody told you.. That doesn’t mean that YOU can do the same thing and achieve anywhere near the same results.

So now I’ve made it through Episode 02 of Season 02 of House of Cards.

In our previous discussion, billcammack.com/2016/03/11/house-cards-season-01-ep01-ep05 I mentioned how they were writing for the long game. I also mentioned what I had thought was going to happen to the hooker in Bald Guy’s car, which didn’t happen….. And then it happened to a totally different character, which I personally saw coming from a mile away, but was still brilliant writing by the HoC staff, and I’m sure it caught people who don’t edit television shows totally by surprise.

The short version is that someone who was being trained in the arts thought they had graduated when she had not, and she paid for that gross miscalculation with her life.

These episodes also continued the (annoying to me, but probably prevalent in real life) show’s theme of people assigning importance, relevance, and power to themselves that doesn’t exist now and never existed to begin with.

Tantrums. People puffing their chests out and proclaiming what they are and aren’t going to do. Blah Blah Blah until the bored dragon decides to breathe fire and turn them into bacon faster than seeing Medusa. Continue reading “Being Like Me Isn’t Like Being Me [HoC S01EP06-S02EP02]”

House of Cards – Season 01 Ep01-EP05

Spacey knows whether or not you’re even a brick in the wall… And even if you are… Who talks to bricks? \o/

I didn’t think I was going to enjoy House of Cards AT ALL, so I’ve just gotten around to watching it.

Of course Kevin Spacey always puts in WORK, but the topic was so boring that I just couldn’t see being interested in the series.

I think the only thing I heard about it was people gasping and being all shocked about some scene with a dog.

So yesterday I started watching it and almost turned it off halfway through the first episode.

I decided to give it a chance and it probably took until near the end of the 2nd episode for me to appreciate the type of writing they’re doing. Continue reading “House of Cards – Season 01 Ep01-EP05”
