Online multiplayer has been in since the first Duels of the Planeswalkers back in 2010, yes.

County's pocket, not the state's, but yeah. They're left holding the bag there.

Knowing the acoustic frequency range being used, I suppose you could probably install a functional white noise generator inside the case. Power-reading is a harder nut to crack, but it's more limited in usefulness.

Sentencing her to live with the people she helped convict for 3-5 years? That's a lot of watching your back.

I freely admit in advance that the whole thing is indeed bullshit, but the 'theft' charge is predicated on the concept that local property taxes pay for schools; if you send your kid to a different property tax region, you're nominally tapping funds you have no share in.

Retire, or 'retire'? I'm sure they could get some mileage out of killing off Ned's wife a second time after he just remarried, but would they really go there?

Startpage literally just sticks an anonymizer between you and searching on Google. It uses Google as the root search, providing the same results you'd get (without any data-based suggestions/prioritizations).

Needs a proper win condition, though. It's fast, but if your opponent gets out a couple of decent creatures while you're building up, you've got no way to punch through. Gut feeling is to toss in a couple of copies of either Helix Pinnacle or Gelatinous Genesis, or maybe 1 each. Once you're active, you've got plenty of dig power.

Scuttlebutt says that House Democrats has found an existing bill that would suffice for the purposes of getting things running again, so we might see a discharge position sooner than later after all.

Discharge petitions don't quite work that way, though. Discharge petitions are to force bills that have been sitting in a subcommittee out into the general pool of bills for voting. A clean continuing resolution would still need to be introduced in subcommittee, then languish there for a period of time without being acted on.

The NYPD doesn't have spell-checkers, apparently.

Classic: Wrong order of operations. Defense invoked consideration of "Stand Your Ground" IF the "intentionally or knowingly" part was held to be true, which it wasn't by this jury.

What, trying to hold them to the same standards as any other currency site that does business with United States citizens?

<@Squizzle> Today, we honor a fallen hero. A life of achievement as rich as Margaret Thatcher's defies summary. At the very least, we can honor her tireless work for progressive reform--few others have done so much to advance equal rights and equal dignity for all people, in all circumstances. Even fewer have fought as fiercely to provide for Britain's children, or for the needy, or indeed any person who in need of support from our civil society. Amidst all of this, Margaret somehow made the time to truly embody the punk spirit, displaying her virtuoso drumming talents as a member of the Sex Pistols. Margaret Thatcher transformed Britain, and all of us on Earth-3 mourn her passing.

I have a simpler hypothesis for why those two were the front-runners: YMC1 was a Creature, YMC2 was an Artifact, and YMC3 was a Spell. We've already covered those territories.
