Re: Observations of the Random sort

This is a generational thing. Every goddamn person between the ages of 25 and 40 (and every woman between 25 and 50) knows who she is. Dawson's Creek was fucking inescapable. I'm a little surprised Thoreau doesn't recognize her, since he's so desperate to tie the '90s up in his basement and make a ...

Re: Food

Yeah, instant pot like all pressure cookers basically only does boiling temperature.

The difference is that the pressure cooker can raise the boiling point of water to about 250F, which is the goal.

Re: Orange is the new President

Trump's 'cognitive tests' just gave me one more reason to question the validity of intelligence testing. It's not an intelligence test. It's a basic mental functioning test. The doctor confirmed that he's coherent enough to know who he is and where he is. He can name animals and replicate basic sha...

Re: cars and how they get that way

One of the cool things about moving out to California from New Orleans for me is that out here, cars will stop for you if you're in the street. One of my friends who moved out to the Bay apparently made a game for a couple of years for how cool it was that if he stepped into the street, cars would s...

The thing about the Aziz Ansari bit is that it's perfect toxoplasma of rage . It's right on the margin where people have a bunch of different reactions, so we're talking and arguing about this.

Keeps your skin from drying out so much after the mild trauma you inflicted on it by shaving.

If I don't use aftershave I find myself itching like crazy about ten minutes after I shave.

Re: Orange is the new President

I mean, I actually find it pretty plausible that much of Europe has immigration that is "too high". Because they have large immigrant populations that aren't assimilating, and that causes all sorts of problems. Now, there are all sorts of other policy reasons that the populations aren't assimilating...

Re: Orange is the new President

The deniability is a bit more complex than that, though. There are some people, mostly elites, who actually believe more immigration is bad for (mostly) non-racist reasons. And there are a lot of people who believe immigration is bad for more-or-less racist and/or xenophobic reasons. And for the mos...

So this really gets to part of the actual problem here. Some people say "we should try to let skilled and educated people immigrate" and mean "let's let talented Nigerians immigrate."

The threat isn't of concrete social or reputational harm due to people knowing about the picture. The threat is of people seeing the picture in the first place. This.

There are apps that do a lookup on the number and block it if it's a probable-scam. I use HiYa, which seems to work okay.

I would be less annoyed with scam calls if fewer of them came when I was asleep.

Sure. It's just true that there are some things which are protected from discovery by attorney-client privilege, and other things which are not. But I'm assuming this entire strategy is in part an attempt to end-run discovery---that's why the lawyer is suing in his own name, and not in Trump's. I'm...

I would have thought there were food chemist flavorings in the Skittles, like there are in other candies.

Every Skittle, no matter the color, is the same flavor . I kind of object to that phrasing.
