And Bob said, “Oh no, it’s a great thing. It humanizes him; it’s fabulous.” I did find a man, who is alive right now, named Bob Shrum who is Catholic and was adviser to John F. Kennedy and also a Democrat. He is mentioned a couple of times in the Wikileaks e-mails addressed and CC’d to John Podesta: https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/45269 https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/40531 Here are some religious themed articles he has written: (The Daily Beast) HowReligious FreedomIs Hurting Everyone’s Freedom (David Mixner) Robert Shrum: Catholic Church Has A Right To Its Faith But Not To Impose It On Others Bob Shrum In a book written by Sydney Blumenthal, ‘The Clinton Wars’, I found an acknowledgment of John and Tony Podesta and also Bob Shrum: “I thank especially John Podesta for his encouragement throughout.” “I appreciate the stalwart support I recieved during these recent years from many people, including James Carville, John Emerson, Mark Penn, Tony Podesta , Bob Shrum …” I have already been told to stop by a user on Reddit using what appears to be a throwaway account: As an interesting synchronicity, I was driving to check on someone’s home that is out of town and I saw this: As we hear from those brave whistle-blowers and Satanic Ritual Abuse survivors like Cathy O’Brian the higher-levels of the government involved in pedophilia was in full swing at that time and even before that so I wouldnt be surprised if they were involved in that.

Sometimes, the best gaming moments happen because players do things the developers never intended. In this case, I'm pretty sure Blizzard never intended for Roadhog to be a volleyball. A new post from the Overwatch subreddit, aptly titled "hog ball," depicts a glorious twisting of one hero's unique ability to "boop" other heroes with a concussive blast. Take a bow, Lúcio . SEE ALSO: Adorable dad reenacts 'Overwatch' emotescio's Soundwave or "boop cannon," as we should all call it is normally used to push away attacking players, preferably over the ledge of a deadly drop. In Hog Ball, however, the boop cannon has a much simpler purpose: keep the ball in the air. Read more... More about Entertainment , Gaming , Overwatch , Blizzard Entertainment , and Entertainment

With procedural content generation, you build data algorithmically rather than manually think Minecraft worlds, replete with all the terrains and mobs you'd expect, but distributed differently for every seed. A lot of games use algorithms similarly to generate appropriate treasure and monsters based on the level of the character. Game developer [Oleg Dolya] built a random city generator that creates excellently tangled maps. You select what size you want, and the application does the rest, filling in each ward with random buildings. The software also determines the purpose of each ward, so the slum doesn't have a bunch of huge mansions, but instead sports a tangle of tiny huts. [Oleg] shows a little of how the application works , using polygons created with the guard towers serving as vertices. You can learn more about the project on Reddit.

Nintendo banned a bunch of hacked Nintendo 3DS systems from accessing online services. The 3DS hacking community is, unsurprisingly, freaked out about it. On places like Reddit and GBATemp , 3DS hackers who modified their systems' firmware started realizing yesterday their systems could no longer access most online services including the Miiverse, the friends list, and apps like Netflix and YouTube. Some people report that the eshop and web browser are still working, though. SEE ALSO: Blind Nintendo fan receives a thoughtful response to his touching letter Nintendo confirmed to us that it issued bans to 3DS systems that were modified, played pirated games, or connected to servers in a way that violated Nintendo's terms of service.

And you've probably also heard by now that season two will have nine new episodes, titled as follows: MadMax, The Boy Who Came Back To Life, The Pumpkin Patch, The Palace, The Storm, The Pollywog, The Secret Cabin, The Brain and The Lost Brother. Now, The Duffer Brothers have revealed just how integral these titles are, and even gone so far as to say that some of the fan theories revolving around the titles are spot on. Here's what they said to The Hollywood Reporter : “Even if they arent the final chapter titles, everything in that teaser is major,” said Matt Duffer. “But they’re ambiguous enough that no one is going to be able to figure it out. Some of the fan theories online are amazing. Most are wrong, but I’ve read a few that are right or very close. Is it Reddit? Some of those people have figured stuff out based off of the chapter titles.

Back in July 2016, in an attempt to distract myself from the horrible fact that Game of Thrones was over for another year, I made a set of nine predictions about what might happen in Season 7. Now that the past ten Game of Thrones -free months are finally over, though, it's time to revisit things. We have a bunch of new promo images, a couple of teasers, and most importantly Wednesday's trailer, all of which means there's more evidence to sift through.

If you're ready to jump on the fidget spinner bandwagon the toy craze that seems to be obsessing the nation but still don't want to shell out a hard-earned $5 or more for the funky gadget, then you're in luck. There are now official instructions for how to make your own fidget spinner using LEGOs, as posted on Reddit . (And if you don't have any LEGOs lying around, then at least you can invest in a box of the plastic pieces knowing they can be used for various other craft projects once your fidget spinning days have come to a close.) While these might be the official instructions from the toy brand, other LEGO lovers have been getting creative with their pieces for weeks, posting popular tutorials on how to construct all kinds of iterations of the toy. While most of the for-sale versions are simple plastic three-pronged trinkets, the variations available when you make your own are pretty much endless.

There is an entire Reddit thread dedicated to his fashion sense, calling him the best-dressed coach in the league. Rileyone of the many to decline our interview requestswas a role model for him, both in coaching and in fashion. [Riley] was tough, Watson says. His teams were tough. But then, he was so stylish. I thought that was a great mix. For the past eight seasons, the league has made following its fashion rules quite easy for coaches. ( Devilishly easy?) Through a partnership with American designer Joseph Abboud, each coach starts the season with 12 free, custom-tailored suits. (Total value: about $10,000.) Abboud will tell you Doc Rivers wears his clothes best. Jason Kidd, too. Also Brad Stevens and Quin Snyder. Abboud defers when asked who could use improvement, nor does he offer insight as to who might be Belichickian.

Perhaps, though, an archive is where Google Groups is best placed anyway. The text portion of Usenet, marred by the obvious difficulty there is in now accessing it and the fact that more effective communication tech is now available for free on the web, sputtered to something of a halt around a decade ago. Don't misunderstand: there are still active groups, particularly for niche subjects that have long stationed themselves there. But most are full of spam and trolls. Realistically you're better off heading to Reddit or similar sites if you're looking for likeminded, moderated discussion.
