Re: Marriage is Totally Gay

Yeah lunch. The more I read your argument the more it sounds like "But I really really don't like him".

Re: Inequality

I'm saying hunter-gatherers were too foolish to invent modern medicine and birth control Actually the birth control thing might not be totally correct. There is some evidence that h/g peoples had various ways - some conscious and intentional, some not - of controlling their population. Later age of...

Re: I just don't get it

A world where guilt is established by evidence and a jury of peers rather than big talk and a disposition matrix; and where compassion and restraint are respected because retributive violence doesn't bring people back from the dead. Ah right, Fantasyland. Although Firefly never made it to season 2 ...

It's hard for me to generalize in my field, because my company has been "40 is fine but a few more isn't usually a problem." There have been times where they say no OT, because of project budget.

While not 70 hour expectation, I feel in office ~50 hours (8:30-5:30) is table stakes in most places, then layer on respond to email expectation and 40 is a bargain.
Check. ~50 week in week out to keep your job. 60+ if you want to climb the ladder.

Good baklava is hard to find.
This didn't use to be true for me, but it is now. Roch NY and Detroit MI both have large Greek populations and good baklava was available.
Here in MO, I've actually managed to find three excellent Greek restaurants but they all have crappy baklava.

I don't get that at all from what JasonL is saying. I definitely don't see how emoluments and the disenfranchised relate. If you have the property or businesses or whatever for emoluments to be an issue you're pretty enfranchised. Perhaps "outside the beltway" would work better here. But I'm saying...

Golf buddies don’t bother me as a new and bad thing. It’s just an example of “this is a bad president who can’t identify/doesn’t care about competence in his staff”.
