Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

Butina was denied a visa twice, then the NRA came to Russia. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/07/20/mariia-butina-russia-denied-visas-734946 I would be surprised if this whole thing has too big an impact on the NRA unless warier and more skilled operatives leave the central org leading to it fuc...

Re: Tiny Triumphs

Washington at least is considered to be fairly epic by any non-mountaineering-hike standards. Then again, the closest I've come to bagging a 14er is summiting Mount Evans (14,265') from the parking lot at the end of the Mount Evans Scenic Byway (14,130'). And I'd put my out-of-shapeness up against y...

Hiked Mount Jefferson in the New Hampshire Presidentials yesterday. JFC that kicked my ass hard. So... much... boulder climbing... Much tougher than I was led to believe ("the trailhead starts from a high elevation so the car does most of the climbing" and "sure it's steep but It's only 2.5 miles")...

Re: What are you drinking?

So a little local brewery called Upslope Brewing is pretty unassuming. Their logo is simple and clean, and their cans are just marked with the logo and the name of the style of beer, each in a two tone can/writing combo. So it’s just Upslope Brown Ale or Upslope Craft Lager or whatever. So I recentl...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

Those modern process-denying shortcut-taking libertines really need to knock it off with the strawmen. A certain type of libertine was the line. Those people should take directed effort more seriously, which is to say at a value greater than full mockery every time it comes up. But yes. Why though?...

Re: If You're So Smart, How Come You're a Phone?

Time to upgrade from my increasingly erratic Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge. So, any thoughts on Galaxy 9 versus iPhone X? My preliminary thoughts are that my previous iPhone was much more intuitive and especially better at storing and playing music. The new iPhone comes with an option for more memory, whic...

I would have called the space between the doors a vestibule, but I might be using that wrong.
Vestibule or airlock work. Vestibule especially if it sticks out from the building.

I mean, it's very foyeresque, so it's not the worst word for it.

FWIW it presents as a blank space in both Safari and Chrome-for-Mac.

Did they mean that kind of thing where there are two sets of doors with a little space between them to keep cold/hot air from blowing into a large institutional space?

Just pathetic excuse-making for Trump this morning. Even though he says he agrees that the Russians did try to meddle!
