As well as the baseball season being too long these days, baseball games take too long as well. For example, the Chicago Cubs won the second game of the World Series 5-1 over the Indians in Cleveland on October 26, 2016 in a nine inning game that lasted four hours and four minutes.

Commenter Almost Missouri writes: Another thing is that Federal agencies like the FBI and ATF mainly employ young-to-middle-aged white guys, so if your organization looks like that, they’re all set to infiltrate you. If your org is full of weedy Near Easterners or scabrous ghetto thugs, well, you can go your way unmolested by the... Read More

The Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago Cubs 6-0 in the first game of the World Series. Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber was overwhelming, striking out 8 batters in the first three innings. The righthander with the peculiar left-to-right tailing fastball was particularly nasty to lefthanded hitters. They don't actually like it when righthanders throw 90+... Read More

One of the ironies of the conventional wisdom is that standardized testing is supposed to be biased against minorities, and yet white liberals tend to go nuts for the occasional Non-Asian Minority who has what it takes to score high on standardized tests. For example, President Obama probably did score quite well on the LSAT.... Read More

Have any pairs of identical twins ever been movie stars after childhood?

The Clash had played slower and if Joe Strummer had noticed he were half Scottish, more Robbie Burns than Rudyard maybe Anthony Quinn than Robbie Dale should write lyrics for Mike Prison is for the people still up Friday night rather than the good citizens up early on Saturday morning.

Commenter Buzz Mohawk notes: To me the pseudo-science of systemic racism resembles a tautology, one that hangs together with the pseudo-legal concept of disparate impact, thus: Where (you think) there is disparate impact, there is systemic racism. Where (you think) there is systemic racism, there is disparate impact. All of this is made possible by... Read More
minutes of Highlights of Trump's Al Smith dinner speech.
I finally got around to watching a couple of movies by the great French comedian / director Jacques Tati, 1959's Mon Oncle and 1967's Play Time. Tati, a successor to Chaplin and Keaton, made post-silent comedies without much plot or dialogue but with a lot of sound effects and visual gags. Tati liked the eccentric,... Read More
The theory of systemic racism is like a giant conspiracy theory. But it’s not a theory, because it’s Science. It’s Conspiracy Science!
Commenter IBC writes: The idea that Trump’s refusal to pledge an immediate and unconditional concession to Hillary’s anticipated but still uncertain victory, is predicated on the now proven-to-be-false media narrative that his coalition of supporters is violent and incapable of tolerating political dissent.

Remember when society's systemic bias favoring Straight White Males caused a black cop to shoot an armed black criminal in Milwaukee in August, setting off another BLM riot protest (with Undocumented Weave Shopping)?

Commenter Anon7 observes: ... Women want to reward Hillary for standing by her man in 1998, but they can’t accept that she did that because everything that Hillary ever got in her life she got through her husband.

Commenter Jimi observes: Liberal journalists can forgive Trump for the stupid things he said. They cannot forgive him for the stupid things they’ve had to say.
The Machine Media are rigging the election and they feel ashamed about it, so they are lashing out in fury at their victim.
From the Third Presidential Debate: CLINTON: ... In the 1990s, I went to Beijing and I said women's rights are human rights.

Would Hillary peacefully accept the verdict of the polls or would she demand that Obama strike back at Russia for rigging the election?
Right as the Presidential debate ended, we got hit with what appears to have been a major Denial of Service attack. It must have been the fault of those hackers of Putin that Hillary is always warning us about.
Some background: Yale undergraduates live in glorified dormitories known as "colleges."

Apologies for the website running slow ever since the end of the debate. I wonder why ... What's on your mind?

From my new Wednesday column in Taki's Magazine: Rigging Elections by Steve Sailer October 19, 2016 Ironically, the most far-reaching scheme to rig this and future American elections isn’t being plotted in the Kremlin (as Hillary Clinton and the ruling media warn).

Are American men getting wimpier? Everyone is entitled to an opinion and entitled to point to their own set of evidence.

Hillary will probably try to put Trump in jail if she's President, the way Julian Assange got charged with sexual assault.

Commenter rienzi notes: Hillary gets paid a quarter-mil to give a speech in private, but when she gives a speech in public, for free, nobody shows up. What’s wrong with this picture? From Yahoo News on the President's speech at Carnegie-Mellon: Obama decries 'wild west' media landscape Pittsburgh (AFP) - President Barack Obama on Thursday decried America's "wild, wild west" media environment for allowing conspiracy theorists a broad platform and destroying a common basis for debate.

From The Guardian: The Coalition of the Fringes doesn't really grasp the concept of Divide & Conquer.
