Re: I may want to see that?

The people involved have been charming in previous comparable roles.

I just hope they actually have enough material beyond the trailer.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

I'm just still stuck on "Don't waste eggs." How exactly does he think ovulation works? There's a "release egg now" button on the cervix and the wang pushes it while you're boinking? I'm pretty sure the implication is that she should find a man at age 18 and stick with him so he has her eggs at his ...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

Well if the state is little more than a gentleman's agreement and you could leave the state at any time is it really a state? "You can leave it if you want!" Is the usual argument statists make when they don't want to admit that the state is coercive. What's different, here? Yeah gawd I frickin' ha...

Re: tio's neato nature thread

So I was out with the pupper setting some sprinklers out front when I noticed that the moon and Venus were putting on a good show.

It's pretty weak on a historical scale starting in 1776, sure. Compared to, say, 2012? Not at its weakest, no. I suspect it was at its weakest on Sept 11 '01 at 7 in the morning.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

If they've left by now it should be okay. Augusta's probably a good bet, too, for power reliability, compared to any place in SC or NC. North and East Georgia aren't super guaranteed, but better than central SC.

You drive a Smart? Zipcar rentals? I think the idea of cute is just fine, you just have to let the Japanese and Koreans do it. JLR is not going to be my go-to for thinking up 'cute' ever.

Re: cars and how they get that way

Jaguar Land Rover feels like the way to get people to trust and like self-driving cars is to put big googly eyes on the cars. Not the worst idea ever, I guess, just, I dunno, maybe they should have gone with something less creepy and leering. https://images.fastcompany.net/image/upload/w_596,c_limi...

Re: The Abortion Thread

OK so quick check of polling says that 47% of Americans identify as pro-life, while 20% oppose sex ed courses which include contraceptive and STD prevention information. So raw math says that my 50% guess is off. However, unless more than half of abstinence-only types are pro-choice, they make up we...

Living in South Carolina and Texas for the vast bulk of my conscious years gave me a first hand observation of the overlap.
