  1. That was by far the most frustrating thing to me. There's no way that the ships could see them but they couldn't see the ships. Failing that, she could have easily swooped around behind them faster than they could have adjusted and blasted them all to ashes instead of the dumb frontal dive. The second. less egregious error was why didn't Missandei just grab Cersei and jump off the wall? She knew she was going to die, she could have just taken Cersei out with her. All that said, it would be a decent twist for Jaime to come in and kill her in order to try to right all the wrongs he did for her through the years. While I've thoroughly enjoyed the show, I feel the same about it as I do about the MCU movies. I'm just ready for the end.
  2. I don't know if Black Panther or Captain Marvel are all that necessary to understanding Endgame. The rest I'd agree with. Endgame was an easy birdie. Not a lot I can add to the other reviews here. I couldn't have been more happy with how it played out. Now, that said, I'm burnt out on MCU. I will probably watch the next Spiderman and Guardians, but that's it. I skipped Captain Marvel because I had heard it had pretty much nothing to do with the overall Avengers storyline. I just don't care to start another character arc. I also hope the rumor I heard was fake....
  3. I think we are just both going by different definitions of discrimination. I prefer to go by the general : to make a difference in treatment or favor on a basis other than individual merit and you are going by the more cultural/modern version : behavior or actions, usually negative, towards an individual or group of people, especially on the basis of sex/race/social class, etc I've already said, businesses have every right to set up whatever policies they want to set the standard of customer they wish to serve short of actual illegal discrimination. If they set standards too high or too low then the market will sort them out accordingly anyway. On a side note, it is interesting how many different takes there are on words like discrimination, prejudice. So many people assume that prejudice or discrimination is automatically an evil/bad thing when that's not always the case.
  4. I'm not talking about illegal discrimination. When policies are set, be it dress code or any other restrictions, they are setting up discriminating factors by which they will provide a service to a customer. I'm not even saying there's anything wrong with that, as long as they don't step over into illegal discrimination. My point was, technically it is discrimination. In no way do I think it's grounds for suing or any legal action, that's ridiculous of course.
  5. A person chooses to have long hair, if there were a policy that said nobody could play if they had long hair would you see that as discrimination? Just because something is a choice doesn't mean it can't be a factor for discrimination. You are using a pretty narrow view of discrimination.
  6. IMO the only legitimate and logical reason to say No is if you don't consider the course worth the money or you can't afford it. Anyone who says they wouldn't play if they didn't have to pay.... I don't know, that just makes no sense to me. You're telling me you can't play a course and enjoy it for what it is because of who owns it? It just boggles my mind.
  7. I disagree, I also believe it's discrimination, but in exactly the way Will means it is. In this context they are treating a single differently than they would treat a group. That's not to say they don't have every right, legally or otherwise, to have such a policy in place.
  8. Which they won't do because it's not legal pretty much everywhere the same way alcohol is. It's a pretty simple concept.
  9. Nope, but seriously, if someone takes a medication for the "fun" side effects then maybe they don't really need the medication.
  10. ... I was unaware that people took medication for the "fun"....
  11. Does the person drink to get drunk every time they drink? Then yes. But, I know a lot of people who rarely/if ever get drunk when they drink, so for those people no. To me, that's the difference. I've never known someone who smoked weed that didn't get high/baked/etc. Do people ever smoke weed and not get high? (outside of medicinal use) That said, all this discussion is really so we should steer back to the discussion about the topic.
  12. Not for nothing, but doesn't that work out pretty well for people who were smoking back in the 60s-80s?? **edit** Meaning that it's the same generations of people that used it the most** That puts them 60+ years old and now they get to use it legally for medicinal purposes. Honestly, I think medicinal use is fine, though I really think that it would make way more sense to pull the beneficial chemicals from it to use in pill or liquid form so people can get the help without the high.
  13. I don't necessarily think a public apology was necessary, unless the PGA required it of course. However, since he did give one it did need to be respectful. I didn't read what he put out, doesn't matter enough to me to spend the time, so I don't know if he went overboard or not. That said, if you are going to put out an apology, it's better to go overboard with it than flippant.
  14. ? From my recollection, he's been a pretty big name for a long time. I've never even heard of Garrigus.
  15. Doesn't matter if it's legal in a state if it's illegal Federally, as explained in the post @billchao put up from the PGA Tour's material. When you choose to be part of an organization you agree to abide by it's rules. It's not the Tour's job to tell him to stop, it's his job to follow the rules outlined by the Tour.
