Re: A thread for mocking politicians

The MIC doesn't want us to go to war against anyone who can reasonably shoot back. The only people who came out badly in GWOT are the guys who make the M1 ??? Are you talking about the M1 Garand? I thought that went out of service decades ago. Sidebar: A local gun shop raffled off a near-mint Garan...

If the Macbook is charging and otherwise working properly, the right thing to do is delete that photo, forget it, and whistle a merry little tune every time you boot up.

Re: I just don't get it

Not exactly that much viking. I just meant a substantial table that fills some space mead hall style. BOOOOO! Shoulda just said trestle table, man. Got my hopes up! I like the grey better. We picked a 'pre-distressed' trestle table for the den in the FL house to fill some space; a big, driftwood-y,...

Re: Fishing for analogues

It would seem to me, on first speculation, that fishing societies would be similar to hunter/gatherer societies, since you're essentially hunting fish in the sea. From there it would seem like you'd have to define parameters for the hunting & fishing frameworks regarding if you're talking about noma...

Kim’s Convenience is kind of the standard sitcom, but it’s written really well. I’m liking it a lot.

Re: Petty annoyances

I think it's just 'people want to talk about what they watched last night' more than anything. <snip> With a tv show, most everybody sees it the same night, and you have to talk about it this week before next weeks episode comes out.

Re: To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

Yeah, NF's picks are getting pretty slim. I get that they want to produce their own content, and that's cool, but browsing for something on there is becoming more and more futile. Maybe they should hire better marketing folks becasue a lot of the little descriptive blurbs are just terrible.

Incel means "involuntary celibate," right? I keep thinking it's "intentionally celibate."
Correct. There’s also “volcel,” voluntarily celibate.
That sounds like a Star Wars monster.

Dammit, I came across a thread about creepy music videos, and someone posted this one, which is only bad in uncanny valley, but I'd never heard this song before, and now I can't get it out of my brain.

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

Historical trivia - the surname 'Walker' comes from the fact that woven wool cloth was 'walked' on in troughs of cold water to turn it into felt.
