It's weird how large pedophilia looms in the minds of the alt-right. It seems to be their go-to accusation against their perceived enemies regardless of the context or evidence.

I am of the opinion that it's neigh impossible to producing anything great without producing a lot of crap.
As a horseman, I agree.

Re: Dreams (not those crushed by the weight of unfulfilled life)

I was in some sort of "maker" competition with a couple of friends from high school (although we were all current age adults). It was to build a bird house or some other type of wooden box, and I can remember not being too worried because even though I wasn't a carpenter or cabinetmaker, as a machin...

Re: Food

Yeah, I’m an Anova convert. But 140? 135? For steaks? Yikes. 126 for 2 hours then sear for me. I did 1-3/4 inch pork chops last week to 140 and then seared on the grill. Oh man.

I’m Warrenist for crock pot chuck roast. Also good for grinding your own hamburger if it’s on sale low enough.

I'm totally in the [death] camp of folks who think "the algorithm" is basically computer code voodoo for a program or app that takes some input, fucks around with it within a larger framework, and spits out results based on the initial inquiry.

Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

Went on a John Carpenter kick and watched Prince of Darkness and In the Mouth of Madness. I know the latter is not very popular among Carpenter fans, but I'd always thought it was one of the better Lovecraft-style movies I've seen. Hadn't seen PoD before; had I seen it when it was new, it definitel...

Re: Orange is the new President

I think a sustained campaign of incivility and harassment of government officials is, overall, a good thing. The problem is that it should have begun decades ago and been bipartisan. So, while it's nice that lefties are finally fed up with the power that .gov wields over us, in two years, when whate...

I grew concerned after the Charlottesville protest when the ACLU underlings first gave pause to defending marches.

Who needs an oven timer? When you can smell smoke, it's done!
First rule of cooking as taught to me by my father, "Charcoal adds flavor."
The rule our Chef had in culinary classes was "If it's brown, it's done. If it's black, you're done."
