Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

So I’m asking the families: In the memory of your children and the memory of the truth -- you say it’s super hurtful to hear these things, I agree. So I’m saying how do you continue to say that and say I said it if it’s so hurtful? Those of us with a background in philosophy will, of course, recogn...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I would like to sit down, privately, with Alex Jones, and have a Frank conversation with him about what is and is not appropriate for a television entertainer to say and do, and about the existence of ethical lines that one should never, ever cross.

Well, then how do you say in Arabic "Sic Semper Tyrannis, Motherfucker"?
!هذا ما يحدث للطغاة، أيها اللعين

"Hatha ma yahadith liltaghaa, aiha allaeen!"

(Lit. "This is what happens to the tyrant, damn you!"... it's as close as I could get.)

Re: Horrible, Offensive Geekery

One reason I'm wary of doing a "regular" steampunk costume is that I'm going to be so hugely pregnant by then (hell, I'm hugely pregnant now). Obviously there were plenty of pregnant people in the Victorian era. But it feels weird and stressful to try to dress like a typical character and then be "...

So what happens if we invite Russia to join NATO? Something bad, I assume? I don't know enough about the topic to identify what the likely bad thing would be.
