Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

(TIL medicine is not STEM. Biology is STEM, engineering is STEM, but medicine is not. That's a weird distinction. It's especially weird when you consider that "medicine" is basically "the engineering part of human biology." Exactly. That does strike me as a weird, if not stupid distinction. But it ...

After one episode, I'm pretty impressed with Catch-22. It's pretty close to the feel of the book.

Re: Make School Hard Again

I think a big part of the problem --at high school, college AND university levels -- is that there's two different reasons why one might go to school, and those reasons often get confused: are you there to get an education (or learn a specific skill), or are you there for the credential? Credential...

Let me know when you guys get to grammar.
Abortions are mandated for those who use text speak and optional for those who confuse who/whom. Retroactive abortions are encouraged for those who use corporate speak or engage in SJW-style abuse of clear language.

Joe Rogan's a comic, albeit one who found (not unlike Bill Maher and Dennis Miller before him) that the continuum from stand-up comic to talk show host to political commentator can be pretty seamless. I think even he would be hard pressed to consider himself a public intellectual. I know Rogan as a...

Yes. Which words are weapons is sports bar. Outside of a few weirdos, neither side disagrees with the statement.

Re: The Abortion Thread

Here's a good way to get Republicans to back off these bills. Argue that personhood at conception means that a baby conceived in the US is a citizen and you can't deport a pregnant illegal alien because you're deporting a US citizen. Bill will be vetoed immediately. There are levels of person, Mo.

Re: The Well-Dressed Man

Levi's now makes an athletic cut pair of jeans (the 541). I recommend checking them out if you fall into the big thighs/big ass/small waist demographic. Because they're new and can't be found at outlets, they're outrageously overpriced for a pair of Levi's, but still way cheaper than fancy brands. ...
