Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

... the Electoral College is Proportional Representation ... yadda yadda yadda Current allocation is based on the 2010 census. Have you seen the nonsense proposals we are being asked to vote on? No, I have not. But proportional reoresentation typically means that eg 15% of the votes gives you 15% o...

Well, the second unite the right march was a bit of a no-show, but Arnie's video re Charlottesville is still worth watching again:

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

... the Electoral College is Proportional Representation ... Uhm... no it's not. It differs from state to state. None, as I understand it, are truly proportional, some follow the congressional districts within the state but most are winner take all. And their weight is not proportional to the popul...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Ya it will sting if Rodin puts up 30 goals for the Ducks. highly unlikely this would happen, he was given multiple chances but things got in the way. I wish him the best and glad he is not taking a roster spot on the Canucks. 30 is a stretch, but he has the skill and hockey smarts to become a more ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Well, one of the local papers put up a live stream - for paying customers. So I've now bought a one month digital subscription at a discount. :lol: So, really crappy pre-season hockey. Also a friendly fundraiser between a bunch of NHL players and basically a beer league team, so what can you expect....

Slightly more on topic. Trump's trade wars are getting costly for Americans:

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

I didn't log on this morning expecting to learn the origin of Swedish meatballs :o Huh. Really? Well, you also learnt how to do the blood eagle on your enemies. I guess Dank had that one in his back pocket but didn't want to risk a major in a Stanley Cup final game. Yeah, it'd be hard to do without...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

As for Sweden, I've never visited. But I like many of your hockey players and enjoyed your attempt to sack Paris in 815 or whenever that was. Thinking big! Yeah, the sack of Paris... In general the vikings that raided western Europe tended to be Danes or Norwegians while Swedish vikings usually hea...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Bo, Gaunce and Hutton are the only players left that were drafted by the last regime. If you include the entire league, Connauton and Schroeder round out the abysmal era that was Gillis & co. 37 draft picks over six entry drafts and only one single legitimate player. :shock: Absolutely appalling.

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Hilarious that this got sidetracked to German history. Donald is President of the United States. He is looking out for US interests, not Canadian or Swedish interests and he is out to get the best deals possible for the US. Nah, he'll just do what he always does. Stir things up to get maximum media...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

Good point, but I hope the Germans had higher ideals than that. I mean, they produced some of the greatest authors, composers and philosophers of the time. They can't all have been simplistic warmongers. The great depression, starting in 1929, struck Europe as well, and one of the countries hardest ...
