    That Marv guy seemed like an asshole.

    He still has a fair amount of sympathy in certain circles out there, even after doing all of that. You could kinda tell it in the Thompson brothers...they know he was crazy, but respect him for it in a weird sorta way.

    No doubt. It's a shame those around him didn't pick up on his mental state sooner. Dude was deteriorating in public view for some time.

    That's the thing with outsiders in a small town. No one gives a shit about them unless they start to ruffle the wrong feathers. Funny enough, Marv actually played small-town politics about as well as you can as an outsider when it came to his civic dealings.

    Really enjoyed this episode of the Timesuck Podcast about the same subject as that doc.

    yeah...I had a couple co-workers suggest it to me and I wasn't really paying attention to what they were saying about it. The wife and I put it on one night thinking it was a comedy or something and we were totally shocked after the first fucking scene. Got sucked in and cranked the whole thing out in one evening.

    Judging by that Timesuck ep, they were pretty bad. He got royally fucked imo, but he should have realized that considering he was a transplant fighting a local. The cement guy was an enormous dickhead trying to fight Marv for land he had put up for auction, and then not allowing Marv to get plumbing (?) -- which really neuters Marv's ability to make money. Cummins thinks Marv is a dickhead, I think he just got really fucked and flew off the handle.

    Also, the Rubik's cube doc is really good. If you guys liked it, and still haven't seen Magnus, watch Magnus. There's some similarity in that it's a kid trying to make moves in international competition. It's free on Prime, and it's one of my fav docs ever.

    Watching Ice Guardians, which is all about NHL enforcers. Pretty good, but also seems pretty one sided -- Kelly Chase himself is an executive producer. That said, I don't know too much about hockey, so maybe I'm wrong and it's not biased. I also think they oversell the mental toll -- to me, mentally it's no different than a boxer, MMA fighter, or even wrestler experiences before their matches. The only difference is that an enforcer is playing a team sport.

    Also, if you're a Pens fan, it'll just piss you off hearing about Crosby.

    Watching the series [Un]well. Talks about the rise in popularity of homeopathic medicine and the people who take it up as the cure-all for literally everything. Then it talks about the arguments against these quack cures and practices. Pretty interesting, and sometimes frightening, to see how some people sign throw their lives (and money) behind this stuff. The scans of MLM, the unnecessary suffering/deaths as a result of avoiding modern medicine in favor of questionable alternative medicine.

    Sounds interesting and depressing. The past included stuff like snake oil and leeches though so maybe not an entirely modern problem?
