True indeed. That website, by the way, has a big section on glass insulators. I went back to the antique threads linked at the bottom and you mentioned that you liked such things. Maybe you can ID the ones you have.

Indeed. There is some fraying around the edges, but they're nowhere close to impeaching as a whole. Ryan wouldn't allow a vote at this point.

The goal of this is to get Republicans to explicitly reject impeachment at this stage in the proceedings. That becomes extremely useful cannon fodder later on down the line.

I'd be down with that. I'm still bracing for somebody to emerge and tell me how wrong I am here!

My best guess is this from the Clevenger Bros. Glass Works in Clayton, New Jersey sometime after 1966. The company did a lot of mold blown reproductions (would explain the seam), and started putting a "CB" mark on their glass in '66. So, maybe is this is a reproduction of an earlier design, done by that company.



Edit: by the way, rosemary oil is indeed one of those things that people like to use as a natural remedy. A right cure-all, if the exceedingly reliable internet is to be believed...

Congrats on the phone shake-up, that sounds liberating. I've volunteered at a few museums in the past, and it can be quite enjoyable. Just make sure it's a place where you enjoy the subject matter!

At this point I just feel jaded. This isn't surprising in the least.

I haven't seen the live-action version, mainly because of lukewarm reviews, but I've always been a fan of the original.

Live-action adaptions are hit-and-miss for me. Some of the comic movies have been really excellent (like The Dark Knight) and others have been total dogs (see: every other recent DC movie outside of the Batman trilogy). The fact that live-action GitS turned out underwhelming isn't much of a surprise.

Hey Pubski, it's been a while. It's very rough few months, and I kind of holed up and ghosted the joint. But I'm feeling a bit better now, so I'm glad to be back. Have a nice day everybody.

You make a good point. Now worth noting, he's been fired: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39866170

It does look bad, I'll admit. I'm basing my analysis off of this line:

    Other officials said it was likely that most of the emails got onto the computer as a result of backups of her Blackberry.

My thought is that Comey mistakenly lumped emails from her backups into the 'forwarded' category, either through a mental lapse or just by misspeaking. Of course, there's a good chance I'm seeing it wrong, but in this case there's enough plausible deniability that I'm willing to give Comey the benefit of the doubt.

Also, nice to talk to you again and I hope you're well. I ghosted my account for a good month and a half.
