Re: Twitter!

I'll admit to being about 50:50 on divider use. If I'm behind someone, I'll usually just leave like a foot or so between our items so there's a clear delineation. The only time I think to put one down behind me is if the person has a super-full cart and/or small kids. I also tend to Tetris all my s...

Re: Orange is the new President

(Before you try to use Trump as a counterexample, he was viewed as quite moderate during the 2016 election. On average people thought he was more moderate than they thought Clinton was.) "Was viewed" by who? Voters. FiveThirtyEight had a roundup on this back in November 2016. (They've written a mor...

Re: Favorite and/or most hated Christmas movie and song

Back to the general topic, can anyone explain to me why "Fairytale of New York" gets trotted out every year as a 'Christmas song'? For the same reason they play "I Believe in Father Christmas," I expect. Desperation for variety, the fact that it's something written after 1900 that doesn't sink into...

Re: Orange is the new President

I think Warren and Sanders are the only two serious candidates who even come close to losing in the general, barring some really fucked up skeleton in a closet. Anyone who doesn't have Hillary baggage is gonna do 2% better than she did, and that's the ball game. Saying "Socialist" out loud may be en...

Re: No Depression - The (alt) Country Music Thread

So I finally tweaked my indie station on Pandora enough that it started giving me some alt-country, which it needed because it'd become way grrlband-heavy - NTTAWWT but it was a bit monochromatic - and I'm glad. I was into Old 97's and Robert Earl Keen and Steve Earl just incidentally through some f...

MD is the only state where people use bumper stickers to tell you what kind of food they eat. Not eat at a specific restaurant but a crab decorated with that epilepsy test they call a flag.
