Yeah, I just looked it up, Grisha is basically Greg in Russian so not exactly exclusive to one character.

Hmmm. Should I have added a *spoiler alert*?

This whole thing is beyond stupid but I guess you could just call him by the first syllable Mal, Cal, Ant, Cass, Ro, whatever.
And I'm not that knowledgeable on the subject but isn't Grisha a pretty common Russian name? That's like saying no one should even name their kid Beth cause that one girl in Little Women dies.

@14: I don't disagree that there should be a trial but I also can't really fault Assange for thinking that he'd be letting himself in for whoooooole lot more than a rape charge if he turned himself in to an extradition treaty country.
I mean I don't think he's like a swell guy or anything (def not after this election) but you gotta admit asking why, if he's innocent, he doesn't just go in for questioning on this rape thing is a bit facetious.

I will add that I think knee-jerk acceptance of every claim of rape without even looking at the evidence is almost as bad for rape victims as knee-jerk disbelief. Or more precisely the former emboldens the latter. Look no further than the Rolling Stone/UVA debacle.
I have no idea if Assange raped anyone. Entirely possible he did but like I said in the absence of a trail and conviction you can leave me out of the pitchfork wielding mob.

Well I know it's kinda zany but I like to wait for a trial before I decide someone is guilty and I find his fear that the U.S. would use that as a chance to scoop him up and throw away the key totally plausible since that's basically what happened to Manning.
I also consider the concept of an organization willing to help whistleblowers expose government wrongdoing to be worthwhile regardless of the alleged crimes of it's founder.
But hey I'm sure your black and white view of the world leads to a better night's sleep so good for you.

I used to feel conflicted about Assange and wikileaks but this election has cleared that right up so...silver lining???

@EmmaLiz and others: I think what some of us are calling foul on is, the guy seems to be a bit deluded? over-justifying? about his situation. If he actually said what you said about settling for a companionate marriage most people would probably just respect his choice. Instead he's all like "We can find absolutely zero hours in nearly half a decade to have sex but as soon as the chick is out of the nest it's on!!!" And we're like, "Ooookay. Let me know how that works out for ya."

Yeah I'm on Team Not Once In Four Years?? Does the daughter not sleep over at friends houses? Go to parties at youth group or girl scouts or whatever? Spend a few hours riding bikes around the neighborhood with neighbor kids?
It's fine to not be interested enough in sex to make time for it but if your daughter is seriously never out of your presence for 3-4 hours besides school...I don't think that's healthy.
