Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

What are you talking about? I'm talking about everyone that got a bonus check from their employer last year. House GOP leaders are making the midterms all about the tax law and it's not a challenge to sell. That's 3 million people, which is 1% of the population or 3% of households. As for running o...

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

Trump isn’t a reaction to Blue policy, he’s a reaction to Hillary. Obama would have mopped the floor with him. If anything, his victory in the primary is a reaction to Red policy. He spoke a lot of pieties about maintaining the social safety net. The Obama repeal went down in flames, despite only ne...

Being tall : a guy :: big boobs : a girl

I've been on Tinder and OKC the last two weeks, (with great success /smug) , and height is mentioned A Lot.
This is correct. Alternatively:

That's a decent get. On a scale from one to twenty this scores somewhere around a 9-11.

Re: Good Cover Versions

Couldn't part of that be that female instrumentalists for classical orchestras compete on a level playing field (auditions behind a curtain), while pop music does not have that. Also, the commercial pressures in both markets select for different talents.

It's even more energy efficient, as far as the washer goes, if you hand dry it. But the amount of energy for the bottles and the rinse agent is probably a lot cheaper than more energy spent on heating and wasting it. A bottle of rinse agent lasts a pretty long time. Even taking into account the ene...
