Re: Podcasts - Watcha listening to?

When he argues for example that the ethics of atheists are not based in rationality but in contemporary norms... I would expect rationality and contemporary norms to walk side by side. "Don't be prejudiced" is an ethic. If contemporary norms are shifting to anti-immigrant, the rational atheist shou...

Re: This is the thread for people who died, died.

I find it interesting that CNBC believes that their audience knows who Grover Norquist and Joe Arpaio are, but Ron Jeremy needs context. Apparantly Hof is still going to be on the ballot for the state leg seat he was running for, and will likely win due to the partisan lean of the district. Fuck. T...

Re: Petty annoyances

I've been enjoying the show Good Bones on HGTV -- it certainly doesn't hurt that the younger woman is a super hot freckled redhead -- but the title really annoys me. To me it implies a house that might need some cosmetic work but that is fundamentally well-designed and/or well-built; yet every epis...

CNBC has probably mentioned Norquist and Arpaio a hundred times in the past few years and Jeremy maybe once. So I'd say they're not wrong about that.

Re: Market Failure!

The pricing where I live is about $100 from Cox for internet + cable and about $120 for just internet. So they're paying you to get cable? You can also choose CenturyLink for just internet, but the price doesn't matter because the internet never works. CenturyLink DSL is the only internets availabl...

I can't tell the players without a score card in the Mid East. Remind me again, what Wahabi regime did we successfully deal with? The House of Saud if 'successfully deal with' means 'successfully bribed into not openly trying to wipe out Israel or playing political oil games.' But could we get simi...

Re: Our Friends, The House of Saud

This is the scary part. Any coup that puts the Saudi royals up against the wall could put a nasty Wahabi regime in place. Those we actually know how to deal with, though. And I'm not kidding. Not sure in what sense you mean 'deal with'. Do you mean 'trade with' or 'bomb the shit out of?' First one,...

Re: Ladyfashun

High heel boots have been a thing for a long long time. May of us cis guys find them hot. This thing draws upon the look of a hiking boot but is otherwise unremarkable. I wouldn't say it's genius, but it's in no way an abomination, unless you want to throw all high heeled boots under the bus with it.
