I think I know who the killer is that they showcase in the beginning of each episode.

Me too.....I think. Tell me if you have same idea, if not who you think.

It's definitely worth a watch though. The actor playing the big mustache killer did a fantastic job.

Brrrrrr. Tell me that last scene of the final episode didn't give you the chills! Flipped me out.

Yep, and Russia. But, they were banned from these Olympics, correct?

Can we talk about some actual Olympics now? Men's figure skating is tonight and early Saturday, I will be getting up to watch short track speed skating live.

Yes. Sorry, Dora Vee. Gotta little sidetracked there. Back to the Olympics! USA isn't fairing so well, as I the moment. Hope they can turn it around. We usually do decent, I think we've won overall medals a few times I remember. But, Winter Olympics is not our strong suit. Summer....we're hard to beat.

Tleilaxu, I don't get your complaint on the way the main chatacters spirals out of control. How would you handle speaking to serial killers, trying to figure out why they do what they do? Then using that info to solve other serial murders. It was his pet project, one he went after with passion and commitment. I can see how that could happen to someone. Great series.

In work out for 45 mins everyday in off. Probably best shape I've ever been in my life. Only chance I ever get to watch TV is after 9pm. So, not a problem for me or my kids. In well aware of that fact. Tleilaxu, I apologized in the Olympic thread, that I didn't mean that it didn't take skill and training to compete at that level of video games. Just not a sport. Is it because you're not active in anyway you insist it is a sport? In well aware of what the cause of obesity is, but its not what you think. WV is also one of the poorest states in the US. Meaning we eat like shit, because we cannot afford to eat healthy. You can offset that with exercise, but when poor, unable to feed family properly, gain employment and so on, depression usually sets in. Therefore, not much exercising gets accomplished, a lot of beer drinking and drug abuse though. I'm well aware of the issue my state faces. Were poor and because of that we're either depressed fat asses or drug abusers.

ETA: I know I put down a lot of shows I've watched and enjoyed, but that's stretched out over a lot of time. Thank God for DVR and Netflix or I would never get to watch any shows because of my work schedule. I don't watch much TV. I'd say I'm on the internet more than watching TV.

Just watched Mindhunters on Netflix about a week ago. If you haven't seen it, do it know! Excellent show, and I believe its already got approved for a 2nd season. Just excellent.

Also, on Netflix I watch Manhunt: Unabomber. Very good and fascinating. They way they caught/prosecuted him had never been done before ever in a court of law. If you don't know the whole story, watch it. These Netflix originals are way more than I ever expected. Great acting, dialogue and filming. Top notch TV.

For those you out there that are gamers, I want you to know that I mean no disrespect, by not thinking of it as a sport. In sure it takes and unbelievable amount of time, skill and hard work to compete at that level. Sorry, if you thought I was being disrespectful. ;)

Ok, I think Sam Darnold will be a huge bust, Josh Rosen has a chance to be a decent NFL QB, if he can adjust his attitude. But, if I am a NFL GM in need of a QB, I'm taking Baker Mayfield.

Here me out. If you see the QB's that are successful, its because the system fits their strengths. i dont know understand why they force a spread QB to be a 7-step drop QB. Eagles just won the SB by basically running RPO (Run-Pass option) plays 75% of the game out of spread sets. The NFL is changing and QB's like Mayfield are prime to take over the NFL. He has arm strength, accuracy, and seems to be a great leader. His antics don't bother me, he'll grow out of that. He's NOT Manziel. I'm telling you, Mayfield will have best career out of those QB's. Wyoming's Josh Allen is the wild card.

I think it is highly plausible that Kellhus soul is simply too "strong" to simply be devoured by a ciphrang, captured by one of the 100, and certainly not balanced enough to find Oblivion.  So, he is probably there, somewhere, in the Outside now, doing who the hell knows what.  I'd think that's what "dead but not done" would mean to me.

Exactly, my "niche" theory you've seen me tout. That the tree and the priest is actually his self, a place he cannot be touched. Think about it, it has no resemblance to the descriptions of the Outside we get in TGO.

I think Wolfdrop is talking about the actual "baby Kellhus" theory. You know, how Sark said, " sometimes souls bounce and the old man ends up behind the eyes of a babe.". That's what he meant I believe, that Kellhus is soul actually went into Akka and Mimara's baby.

that he's in limbo somewhere. Limbo could be 'the space between the gods'/'oblivion', could be be ascended into Absolute status above and beyond Ajokli and his Outside (Outside the Outside, as it were)

I love this. It also fits with my idea of Kelhus having created a "niche" where he basically hiding from Ajokli, gods and all. I've put forth that idea before.

This is a quote from the Con. Bakker confirmed his death, but still must have some sort of role to play. I started the thread because if like to hear everyone's thought on what this could possibly constitute. Here's a few of my thoughts I've had on it.

Most likely: Kellhus is simply in the other decapitant. And might have simply put off the possibility of damnation for the time being.

My crazy theory: He's in "a" decapitant. The mysterious deaths of "I forget the year but a poster here remarkably found them in the glossary", and he created a "network" to move around with the decapitants. Kinda like Shae, but not. Basically, I think he has more than the two decapitants and has strategically placed them.

I don't find the above likely, its just a thought. But, I'd love to hear other idea's on what this could possibly mean. Oh, and Bakker did confirm he is not in the Outside. Maybe one can't take Bakker for his word and he is wily when answering questions. But, for this thread, he is dead and not done and isn't on the Outside. What ya think about it?

Yeah, I couldn't remember if any/all could detect it, hence my caveat that at least it shows manners/social grace to not flaunt it ( something the breaker of horses might not care, moreover disdain ).

Yet, remember, before Kellhus sorcerers were just a damned and hated as whores. Social manners were of no concern when dealing with sorcerers. Except for the rare relationship such as Xinemus shared with Akka.

Somewhat agree, but securing it makes it less likely to be lost as with a bracelet or necklace. Also, less likely to accidentally salt a sorcerer. Also, obfuscation of it allows you to mingle with sorcerers easier ( unless they can sense it, then storing it away does only small good - they find it respectful of you not to bear it and rest easier in your presence knowing a mishap is less likely ). Also less likely to be robbed from you, kinda like dangling around a diamond necklace marching with the GO ... brings attention.

I get your point of securing as to not salt a sorcerer buddy, lol. But, regardless of where its at on the person, a sorcerer feels/senses that pinprick of oblivion. I like how Esme wore it strapped and her belly. It was hidden under clothes making contact next to impossible, yet offered her constant protection. You think that would be a common way of wearing one. He'll, a man could do the same around the thigh or upper arm. Unless, you know, you are The Most Violent of all Men and go shirtless to show of all those swazond.
