    Is soccer like golf where the low score wins?Hanover

    No, it's like the American Revolutionary War where the worse side wins.

    Croatian women are some of the warmest people I know. Their laughs are contagious so is their wine~ Last weekend we had a celebration of life for the husband of our Croatian woman friend and if you didn't know better, you would think you had stumbled upon a party. :heart:

    An epic struggle in the World Cup yesterday. And a smaller personal struggle to avoid hearing of the score until I could watch the whole recorded contest early this morning. Darn clock radio nearly ruined the surprise!

    So the pitch black Crows have taken the Lions’ own meal... The kingly predator outdone by a scavenger’s zeal. (hmm... what rhymes with FIFA?)

    Unfortunately, I looked that up. There were obvious alternatives, damn you. e.g. Reefer.

    Our Fearless Leader? Yes, now all our beverages are named after the Most Benevolent One and his healthy and exuberant family. All your soft drinks are belong to us. Right now, I’m sipping an diet Ivanksi soda. :starstruck:

    Finally, the right is turning on Peterson!

    https://jacobitemag.com/2018/07/10/jordan-peterson-agent-of-chaos/

    "There is no reason, therefore, to believe that classical liberalism can serve as a substitute for religion in the political domain. The same goes for Jordan Peterson’s maverick blend of Jungianism, quasi-Christianity and self-help, however desperate Western men may now be for direction and guidance amid the West’s abysmal descent."

    The awkwardly named 'Intellectual Dark Web' reminds me of Ray Brassier's condemnation of Speculative Realism as a "cohesive intellectual movement", the existence of which, according to proponent Graham Harman is bound merely by the common rejection of correlationism. Brassier, however, argues that this is not a sufficient condition to form a unified movement, as this would require the inclusion of an exceptional range of otherwise highly diverse and anathema thinkers. It is flimsy criteria with which to fly a unified banner.

    Likewise, the Intellectual Dark Web, which sounds like an evil organization from a cheesy 1980s children's cartoon, includes an assorted list of characters such as Ben Shapiro (a conservative Orthodox Jew), Sam Harris (Atheist), Michael Shermer (Skeptic), James Damore (fired from Google), Jordan Peterson (Jungian Psychologist), Steven Pinker (Linguist), Dave Rubin (Talk Show Host), Lindsey Shepard (a fired TA), and many others, whose only major commonality is a rejection of far-left politics, in particular "identity politics" and "political correctness". Otherwise, they hold many ideas which are at variance with one another.

    Brassier denounces the purported existence of the Speculative Realism movement as nothing more than a "brand" in a specific consumerist sense - "philosophy-marketing". Similarly, the Intellectual Dark Web "movement" seems like nothing more than an opportunity to "sell" anti-leftism sentiment in the form of books, monetized YouTube videos, webinars, College lecture tours, and op-eds in the New York Times or The Wall Street Journal.
