Re: Fragments of an avotoast anthropology

According to a November 2017 Economist/YouGov poll, 17 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 now believe that a man inviting a woman out for a drink “always” or “usually” constitutes sexual harassment. I see this in the wild now. People totally freaked out over conversing with other people in real life.

It's a contraption.) for my QNIX panel and it doesn't have a grounding prong. No problems for years now and it's zip-tied onto the power-strip because it doesn't h...

Re: The Well-Dressed Man

I found a small boutique menswear store here in best Portland that carries a variety of selvage denim, woven and sewn in the US. Pretty nice stuff but way out of my budget.

Re: Our Friends, The House of Saud

I was surprised, but I don't think any nation wants that kind of disrespect for their sovereignty. Turkey may have learned from the fooferaw in DC that people actually care about these kind of diplomatic issues, and they still get far more support from the West than they do from the Saudis.

Re: Orange is the new President

Just a reminder that new tariffs go to 10% beginning 10/1/18, and 25% 1/1/19.



Steve reminds us that shipping is also affected because manufacturers are rushing to get product out of China, and this is eating up all available outbound cargo space and driving up prices.
