Couldn't agree more.
*IF* this is the end of Boreme, I'll be gutted. Lunchtimes will never be the same again.

Big thanks to everyone at Boreme for all the entertainment over the years. Well done! I'll miss you

Yes, Chuck is oddly like a comedic straight man.

As for Elon Musk, he's a strange mix. He's obviously full of himself and totally convinced of his "rightness", but to me he weirdly comes across as tentative. I certainly wouldn't think of him as pompous.

Tyson is "all my jokes are funny, all my asides are fascinating, all my insights are mind blowing, the world is fortunate to have the benefit of my galaxy-sized brain in this video."

Musk is "I've gathered the information and done the analysis in ways I won't go into, I'm two steps ahead of the world and making a ton of money, but here's the straight overview of where I'm going. Oh, and I worry my girlfriend is going to leave me."

Just for the record, I'm happy with most of the content of BoreMe - apart from the regular ego-fest of Neil deGrasse Tyson.

I mean for crying out loud, aren't there any less pompous astrophysicists out there?

and if Trump doesn't pardon himself, I bet Biden will (if he wins) - just as Ford pardoned Nixon to minimise the splits in US society

I think it's a leftover from the Sunday Trading laws. These were meant originally to keep the Sabbath as a day of rest - but also meant shop workers had at least one day off each week.

That "illegal" bit is a red herring, but liberties we have in the UK include:

the right to free health care, the right to an apolitical judiciary, habeas corpus, the right not to be banged up for life (in a corporate prison) for a thrid offence.

We can also keep skunks as pets and let our horses sleep in bath tubs (both illegale in parts of USA)

We're all in the same boat, matey. The rest of the crew have realised you're being a tad selfish by continuing to burn the decking in order to heat bathwater that only you will use.

So when your Florida condo disappears beneath the rising tides, will you finally join the dots?

Poor you. I agree it's inconceivable to expect people to change their life-styles - or indeed propose any solutions. The only logical way out is to carry on f*cking up the planet.

I'm in the UK and have no evidence of the effect of the Lincoln project.My feelings are ambivalent.

On the one handI like them because they undermine Trump and give him back his own medicine.

On the other, if this is the future of campaigning, the USA (and the world) will end up with whoever has the slicker campain rather than the better policies.

My guess (and it is only a guess) is that they will be effective as they are obviously being shared, they will annoy the hell out of Trump (if he's allowed to see them) - and at the very least will affect his marginal voters.

Anyone who might/might not vote Trump would probably be less likely to as he is being portrayed as such a weak and ineffective leader.

I'm suspicious about the Lincoln project's motivations - apart from being anti-Trump, I'm not sure what they stand for

This is the same campaign as was used against Hilary Clinton four years ago, showing her as an ill and weak candidate.

On the one hand - if it's sauce for the goose, it's sauce for the gander. Suck it up, Trump, how do *you* like it? LOCK HIM UP!

But I feel on balance it's wrong in principle as it encourages people not to vote on policy but on an unreal image. Keep going down this road and you end up with the candidate who has the best smoke and mirrors rather than policies that are best for the nation/people.
