I had the same experience in Versailles two months ago. They tried to use language barrier and playing dumb to cut in front of giant lines. Fuck you.

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Once the get up and running it would be pretty cheap and easy, but incumbents will drive new entrants out of business and then raise prices back up. It’s the same shit Rockefeller did with the railroads. Rockefeller was Standard Oil. Carnegie was steel. The railroads could never get a proper cartel...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Yup, well aware of that. And incumbents will let you know they’ll crush you before you get out the gate. Which is how we’ll end up with Elizabeth Warren’s biosimilar factory that will suck, but Lilly will deserve. Or they’ll give a pass to European/Canadian biosimilars.

There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Pharma markets them, stops marketing old ones and threatens to temporarily price war new entrants to the point of massive losses and still profit. You don’t need to fire a gun for it to be a credible threat. It’s in TFA, making bio similars ain’t cheap.

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

The headline says everything you needs to know, "Don’t Want Your School to Be Named for a Confederate General? Find Someone Else Named Lee." Basically schools named after RE Lee are renaming themselves, but to save money are keeping Lee, but changing the Robert E. part.

I think it’s because they liked Obama and he was adept at playing the media. One only needs to look at how they pressed Clinton (both) to see its not solely a blue thing.

Re: When journalism goes bad

A healthy chunk of the media is actually liberal. I don't see what that relates to. Mo’s comment upthread. I would counter that the media is white and urban, with the biases that underlie that. That leads to more anti-gun, socially liberal beliefs, but also pretty credulous when it comes to law enf...

Also, MMR vaccination rates are pretty consistent all the way back to the dial-up era.
Here's an article that tries to explain the seeming contradiction that is in these numbers.

All of my interactions and observations of the Met have been much better than any police force in the US. And when dealing with crazy, drunk, belligerent folks, they show far more restraint than I’ve ever seen. Definitely something favorable to be said about disarming the police. Also just not havi...

Isn’t the problem that e-discovery is a whole different beast than paper discovery.

Re: Orange is the new President

I mean proof of the fact that nothing matters is that Warren will defend it even though the article making the accusation has the picture of them meeting, yet he has to defend a clear lie. But he’s definitely not a Trump defender. No siree.
