"Season 1 followed the first book until right at the end. Season 2 went off on its own. Both are very good though. The sotries are so different you don't need to compare them."

"I thought the latest version of the Count of Monte Cristo was a pretty good movie. Upon reading the book, I realized that the book was far superior, but nevertheless consider the film to be one of the better ones out there."

Should freedom of speech apply absolutely to the internet?

It goes without saying that freedom of speech as mentioned in the 1st Amendment was drafted long before anyone could have envisioned the internet.Interestingly many states do have their own local laws regulating speech (ex. obscenity) which seem bypassed by internet access.So should freedom of speech as a right be applied unequivocally to anything any everything accessible on the internet; the internet is the closest to anarchism that one can really get so there's no further-left one could go…See More

I could have died while hiking today, don't be stupid like me

I have a cautionary tale for my fellow outdoorsmen out there. I went hiking solo today through some less traveled canyons near where I live. I unknowingly ended up off trail and was aggressively bouldering to get up and around some obstacles, mainly a decent sized waterfall. I kept pushing because I thought this was my route, and the knowledge that I wouldn't need to go down because I was on a loop. Anyway, I finally got up the bulk of it and couldn't find anything that resembled a trail.…See More
