Leonard Nimoy died today :(

Sad news indeed. At least he lived a long life and prospered. May he rest in peace. Somewhere in space, his star is shining bright.

Aww man, that is really sad news.

I hope this doesn't sound insensitive, but I kind of hope the recording for KH3 was finished. Nobody can replace Nimoy as Master Xehanort.

^ I was thinking the same too, to be honest.  He was a great and unique choice for a villain, and starring alongside Mark Hamill was a small nerdy pleasure.

But yeah, Nemoy was a good guy and I was blue to hear he'd passed.  And a little surprised Shatner pulled ahead, tbh...

God rest, he lived long, prospered, and hopefully is on a new adventure in some fantastic cosmos (or whatever wonder happens after we die).

Chicago on St. Patricks

All the drunk white chicks passed out outside of whatever Panera/Au Bon Pain-oid thing is on the loopy sky train side of the river.

Chicago turns into a zone of awfulness during St. Pats.

Chicago on St. Paddy's day is nothing compared to Boston, I'm sure. Boston folks are horrible 365 days of the year, and everyone here has to celebrate their "Irish pride" whether they're Irish or not.

I'm willing to bet it was extra bad this time around what with everyone also coming out to say a big "Fuck you!" to winter and its record snowfalls in your area. 

And given how much many of us complain about insufferable sports fans (I recall that here at RPGFan, there's a little bit of a pissing contest about who's worse: Boston or Philly), part of me wonders who has the LEAST insufferable fans.  Where it's actually pleasurable to go to a game.  Speaking of, things are going to get cray-cray once again as people bet money on NCAA college basketball.  I love sports as much as the next guy, but it's kinda sad that at the high school and collegiate level, student athletics are more valued than academics.  Schools will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for new turf on the football field while math teachers still have to use outdated textbooks that are falling apart.

In even more "God my state is embarrassing" news. Today our governor signed a bill that allows companies to refuse service to people based on their religious beliefs.  http://www.cnn.com/2015/03/25/politics/mike-pence-religious-freedom-bill-gay-rights/

It's essentially a bunch of scared white christians (Indiana is GREAT at producing scared white christians) who somehow feel that doing business with a gay man or woman is oppressive to their religious freedom.  Because in America, white christian business owners can somehow convince their rich white christian state legislators that they are being discriminated against BY THE PEOPLE THAT THEY'VE BEEN OPENLY DISCRIMINATING AGAINST FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS. 

This is state mandated hate.  It's a new Jim Crow law.

I seriously have to read the exact wording of that bill, because there's no freakin' way that could be constitutional if it blatantly allows discrimination. Senate Bill "Religious freedom" 101, correct?

EDIT: http://iga.in.gov/legislative/2015/bills/senate/101#digest-heading

^That one? I'm no lawyer, but that has to be one of the most vague bills I've seen in some time. I can't even tell what it does and does not enforce, and judging from the second sentence, it sounds like...the Government doesn't really have to persue 'certain actions' unless the government feels it is within their best interest. I'm glad people are protesting this, because it is obviously set up to be abused in a multitude of ways.

It's asinine.  Pro Tip: The bill doesn't REALLY uphold someone's "right" to act like a total bigot.  Kind of sorta does on the surface, but not if someone who knows what they are doing tries to sue the pants off someone hiding behind it.  It's just Indiana's vague, right wing and completely misguided attempt to uphold "freedom and liberty" whatever the hell that even means.
