Well it does give a new *ahem* visual to the old "Lock her up" refrain.

Re: Is the ACLU getting too Woke?

The ACLU has abandoned it's historical mission and is taking it's place as the legal vanguard of Antifa styled fascism. It is now exactly what it was chartered to oppose. Expecting the ACLU to be concerned with civil liberties is now like expecting Republicans to be concerned with fiscal irresponsib...

Re: Capitalism: It works, bitches

Maybe, bitches? Wunderground just served up an ad for the Rotimatic. A breadmaker/Easybake oven for making roti right in your own home. Just USD 999 for one or two units. I'm seeing reviews suggesting it's overpriced. I've never made roti, though. As far as I can recall, I've never even eaten roti....

William Goldman , 87, R.I.P.

I thought that was strictly Doppler. You're telling me there's a relativity correction for velocity and/or altitude? huh.

Re: Food

So, this is a thing I started doing some months ago. It's an obvious thing, I expect it's been done before, but I've never come across it. I save my snack bag dregs. When the pieces get too small to respectably eat, but there's too much to just throw away, I crunch up the dregs in the bag and poor t...

i've never understood how the technically correct people don't have the lower stick slide off the finger. It's 2.5 seconds into any eating effort for me with that grip.
I don't see how it's any different with your grip. That's why I use the pad of my finger.

Ah, I thought how you do it was the technically correct way. I do it "technically correct" save that I rest the pad of my middle finger in the lower stick.
