Re: Home $weet Home

I'm still keeping up with the massive organization/clean of my apartment I did when recuperating from that butt-kicking virus that left me too tired to do much of anything beyond sit quietly, sort through items at a leisurely pace, and place them in various pre-existing drawers or cabinets or compar...

Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

This is premeditated murder of children. Forget impeachment, this merits Nuremberg. Of course, had the Nazis not been defeated, not ONLY would there never have been any Nuremberg trials, the camp workers would eventually retire with cushy tax-funded pensions -- EXACTLY the destiny of our concentrat...

Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

Dilution is the word you're looking for. No, it's definitely diffusion, because not only is that the opposite of concentration, but diffusion is also an intransitive verb meaning "To make known to or cause to be used by large numbers of people; disseminate." And sho' nuff, our camps are being used ...

Re: They won't be American Idiots: The Greenland Thread

What in the fuck is going on in fucking Washington? Is this real? It really is downright hallucinatory, like trying to describe those dreams that make sense while you're dreaming but sound totally bananas upon awakening: Trump was planning a visit to Denmark, see, and then he said he wanted to buy ...

Re: They won't be American Idiots: The Greenland Thread

What in the fuck is going on in fucking Washington? Is this real? Yeah it's real. And it's not new. Remember when Obama said his would be the most transparent administration? And how it totally wasn't? Now you know why. Huh? Are you suggesting Obama, like, trashed a relationship with a US ally by s...

Although at least three kids have died in our diffusion* camps, the government is refusing to let the inmates have flu shots. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/08/20/the-us-wont-vaccinate-migrant-children-against-the-flu-at-border-camps.html *Since diffuse is the opposite of concentrate, I figure that l...

This is not actually "fashion" so much as "antifashion," but: I found this sweater in a Goodwill today and originally decided not to buy it, then changed my mind after figuring it might come in handy someday as a half-ass emergency Halloween costume. It's a little bit big on me -- size "small" but r...

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

When Jeff and I first moved here -- after living in Virginia or Connecticut locations also in the eastern zone, but much further east than we are now -- we were initially astonished by how very, very late sunset came here. Especially since we moved in summer close to the solstice, when the further n...

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

Something I never much thought about before, until looking at a map: I live in a suburb of Atlanta, in America's Eastern Time Zone (though in the westernmost part of that zone), and the entire continent of South America is due east of me.

David's parents are both very religious, very conservative. (They know we're not conservative but don't know I'm no longer religious.)

The nature of the divisive thing from the right is they think the standard national myths are important. Divisive is “you are eroding the glue of America as a nation”.

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

Speaking of God, I wonder if the conservatives' need for values we all agree on is related to how many religious people are just BAFFLED by the idea that atheists could have a moral code or choose to do good works for their own sake without fear of divine punishment. That we all have to agree on Th...
