The "standout stat" for Kentucky is nonsense. 1 bar per ... whatever. We have more barrels of bourbon than citizens here in the Commonwealth. All else pales in comparison.

were do find color copy of books at?

Probably only in used bookstores. Noble Knight has a couple of copies on hand at the moment - nobleknight.com, if you're unaware.

By order of the Ministry of Truth, Netflix has always been available in Oceania.

Y'know, some people can't be trusted with a blank check. 

The ... excesses of disavowed agents are not the concern of the Agency.

...Wait, wasn't there something World on Fire related left?  Or is that no longer a thing?  I'm willing to bet on the latter.

No longer a thing. Y'all have a blank check - go nuts.

122mm smoke rockets are PR2. Close enough?

Away from my books and files, so I call upon the assembled knowledge base.

Does Fantasy Craft have an option for undead PCs? First level, later in career, any?

Asking for a friend. A friend with curiously cool skin.

In all seriousness, I'm starting to wonder if we'll have any "Traumatic Cardiac Events" when SC3, 10,000 Days and Nights or Z-Corps drops. 

God, I hope so.

All good, man.

And that's ignoring the concept of for-profit schools.  I view those like for-profit medical insurance.  Who came up with that idea and can we return it?

They're both pretty awful.

Pardon my lack of #sarcasm annotations.

Why would they be needed? The sarcasm was obvious.

That said, for a college to afford "naming rights" on a Pro-Stadium is a little insane.  That's like my local Middle School buying the naming rights of a 4 lane bridge.

If said middle school was a wholly-owned subsidiary of a for-profit corporation, sure. UoPX is more concerned with its standing with the Securities and Exchange Commission than the Higher Learning Commission.

Look, you've got a legit point - athletics money has a huge influence on colleges and universities. My own university's football and basketball teams play in facilities with the names of a mediocre pizza company and a Fortune 500 fast-food company, respectively. However, the truckloads of money that ESPN has dumped in the university's coffers has helped pay for a lot of improvements - improved student housing, some terrific research and classroom facilities, campus expansion, two overseas campuses, and the new undergrad program that I'm now part of. It may be something of a devil's bargain, but it's meant a net improvement in the campus and its educational offerings.

The "University of Phoenix" is a for-profit college who bought the naming rights to the NFL's Cardinal Stadium. There is no University of Phoenix athletics program.

Cardinal Stadium's pretty neat. The playing field is natural grass over a pretty well-engineered drainage system, and the entire field can be rolled out of the stadium, as seen in the posted photo.

Huh? It's pretty clear from the previews that the main character of the show is C1-10P / Chopper - the sassiest astromech droid in the galaxy. The show's really about his day-to-day struggles as he puts up with an at times barely competent crew of humans and aliens trying to fight the good fight against the evil Empire.

You nailed it, amigo.

Also, housemate and I couldn't stop grinning during the premiere of The Flash.
