Iím eager to see whatís next, but itís maybe a 2/10 so far.

Oh yeah? Well you know what else was 2/10? Double Hitler crowdsurfing ten other Hitlers, you dodeca-Nazi.

Am I doing Godwin's Law right?

So a train is heading down some tracks, uninterrupted it will kill 10 clones of hitler, but you have the option to change the tracks, where it will instead kill the ACTUAL hitler. What do?

I would like to return yo the Mueller investigation conclusion. How long before we can expect things to start happening, if they do start happening? Are there any formal steps that needs yo go through now or could Mueller, if it seems it won't be made official in a satisfying way, be subpoenad like tomorrow already?
It'd probably take more than a day -- stuff would have to be voted on or subpoenas issued or whatever, which would take a day or two at minimum -- but pretty certainly less than a month. To get started, anyway. Finishing whatever comes of it would take longer, and doesn't touch all the stuff that's already in progress. Still, you'll probably have a good idea of what's going to go down and a rough timeframe by the end of, say, April.

E: Actually, if you can stand a Twitter thread pile, check this out. Summarizes what's actually going on with the investigation (and related ones, which are myriad) better than I can.

I hate it, but can stand it in the pursuit of knowledge. Thanks for the link! It was very interesting.

Eye opening.

Tl;dr, Mueller "not bringing any more indictments" does not mean he's done. Information garnered is being sent to other agencies to determine if anything else can be drawn from it. What material Mueller's team does have remaining doesn't have anything eye-catching in and of itself, thus they can only send it to other investigators to cross-reference.

Shorter tl;dr MSM have went and lost their tiny little minds. Shocking.

AG Barr said that he could release the 'principal conclusions' sometime this weekend, so, it's moving relatively quickly.

It is difficult for me, as a Scotsman, to take AG Barr seriously.

It also makes me really crave Irn-Bru.

Just get shitfaced and try to slur your way through those sentences, it makes perfect sense then.

A. G. BARR, aka Barr's, is the company that makes Irn Bru, a popular soft drink in Scotland. It is therefore humorous that the AG is called Barr.

The joke is now dead.

My work is done.

Sadly not. I'm Scottish as well. I've supped on the nectar of the BRU since I was but a bairn, I've quaffed BARR lemonade many times. The sugary wrath of liquid confectionary has seared my soul and probably my arteries.

In other words I just stumbled into the thread after playing games for a few hours and saw the post, knew what BARR was and decided to spoil the fun.  :P

Now all we need is a scottish political figure named Pepsi, Coke, Fanta, Sprite, or Mellow Yello and we've come full circle.

Or more scottish pokemon trainer memes.  I'll take those too and then hit the concept with a hammer until it makes a semblance of a circle.

Can I help you, young lady, perhaps you're interested in pitting our pocket monsters against each other in a duel?

It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.
