Re: Silicon Valley Disrupts Its Own Ass

I get that there exists the SV attitude of, "using technology to accomplish this mundane task is revolutionary!" But at this point it seems like the joke has overtaken the reality. If a start-up puts out a press release announcing their service, they're immediately mocked as claiming their one produ...

Re: Orange is the new President

I'm sure Trump has something to do with the numbers, but five years is a long time. And the 2016 poll was conducted a couple weeks before a presidential election (not the case in 2011), and I assume they decided to poll this question again in response to pussygate (poll results dated Oct 19). So the...

Re: Silicon Valley Disrupts Its Own Ass

How much of this is complaining about what these guys actually said in pitching their little idea, and how much of it is spin by Internet media or your own assumptions of how SV dudebros think? The owner of a business said he hoped his business would be really, really successful and become the stand...

Re: Orange is the new President

When Obama was in office, only 30% of white evangelicals would forgive a president's immoral behavior. Now it's 72%.
Both numbers are from when Obama was in office.

Watching the first episode of Bob's Burgers confirms my inclination to not have watched it sooner. How can anyone tolerate the voice of someone like the Linda character for any amount of time is beyond me. Plus, not generally entertaining. I plowed through the whole first season.

Re: Twitter!

Chelsea's twitter account sways me to the charge that she's mentally ill. I start to think that's an irrational response, then I see another tweet... I though she might've had something interesting to say about civil rights. More proof that Snowden > Manning. Those Dune memes are why Twitter exists.

Yeah, that moment in the police station was hilariously wrong. Unless Matt was actually going to walk through the door. But he didn't, so why wouldn't Claire break the news to her friend Foggy?

Then why did she stop in the Riverlands and then head for Cersei? Why would the Terminator Waif act all conflicted at the Inn of the Crossroads, considering Jon is her target?

I didn't mean to sound flippant. I assume it's cited because it could have been fatal or severely debilitating. But, it wasn't.

The amount of "but antifa!" going around is a little shocking to me. I guess I still thought that, when you have a death in an attempted mass murder, all but the most loyal partisans would take a breath and say, "Shit, that's awful. This is plain bad." And that's ignoring the context of a rally by l...
