    I really love British comedy like Monty Python, Peter Cook & Dudley Moore, Rowan Atkinson, and Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie. I'm not the biggest fan of comedy movies, because they tend to try to drag out a few jokes over 2 hours. The great comedy movies are those that aren't afraid to keep it short...

    Serious The Atheism/Agnosticism thread

    I've encountered quite a few Christians who see it as their duty to "save" me from the eternal fires of Hell, often quoting Psalm 14. The Old Testament tends to be more ambivalent towards nonbelievers as long as they stay out of the way of the Israelites, whereas the New Testament (which most...

    I'll second Colbert, and good sketch comedy (Monty Python, Fry & Laurie, etc.) often includes some excellent satirical sketches. Mel Brooks has made some great satires as well.

    It is so ridiculously satisfying as a Red Sox fan to watch the Yankees get utterly dominated like that. It was almost worth a season of Bobby Valentine to watch.

    One-run games are not entirely luck, but there is a significant element of randomness involved. Often teams that severely over- or underperform their run differential are subject to regression to the mean. A good bullpen and good clutch hitting can help minimize the amount of regression a team...

    Buster Posey just fucked the Reds hard. I really want to see Byrne's face right now.

    Trade him to the Dodgers. That's what we did with our useless, bloated contracts.

    It's Dusty Baker's fault. He bats Zack Cozart, .288 OBP and all, leadoff. He overused Aroldis Chapman, leading to fatigue at the end of the year. I could go on and on. He once said that you don't score runs by getting on base. Think about that for a second. However long it takes to sink in. The...

    Trout should be the MVP. Easily. As a side note, he's 1 SB away from becoming only the 3rd player ever to have 30 HR and 50 SB in a single season. He'll join Eric Davis in '87 and Barry Bonds (pre-steroids) in '90. I kinda want to see the Braves win it all. My Sox were out of it long ago, and...

    I've actually never read the scarlet letter, I've been reading some short stories he wrote and they're great. I can totally see how his writing style could get a bit tedious given a full book, though.

    I've been reading a bunch of stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne lately and they have to be among the greatest shit ever written. The man was a genius.
