Re: Market Failure!

Rit-brand fabric dye basically comes in two varieties: one for natural fibers, one for artificial. Since my summer clothes are all silk or linen, I've been using the natural-fiber dye. I have discovered there is also a third (and more expensive) option: a dye which claims to work on natural and art...

Re: Market Failure!

I know nothing of high end clothing items but I can see the case where a hand tailored linen or silk suit would also use a like thread. I know very little about high-end clothes either, even though I'm pretty sure I have at least a few high-end labels in my closet, because my outer clothes all come...

Pfft. They'll get over it and even learn to embrace it, as soon as they figure out "Whoa, this is really-super-duper triggering The Libs."

Re: Does Elon's Musk stink?

Further thoughts on the subject: it's not "just" pedophilia accusations popular among alt-righters, but sexually charged insults in general. Remember, this is the group that made "cuckservative," later shortened to "cuck," a go-to insult for their political opponents.

Re: Market Failure!

Maybe not full-fledged "market failure," but definitely some "market shenanigans" IMO: regarding clothes, a tag announcing that a garment is "100% silk" or "pure Irish linen" or whatever is not necessarily honest; the cloth used to make the main garment might well be woven from pure linen or silk, b...

Re: Tiny Triumphs

Dyed another batch of good-except-wrong-color linen clothes, this time with navy blue dye, and the results were even better than last time. This time I did the dye job myself, except I could not find the yellow rubber icky-housework gloves so I did the dye job with my bare hands. So now, all my cuti...

He isn't a conspiratorial Mastermind. He's a guy going along with what's happening. That's still inexcusable, and impeachable. According to the Stable Genius, if anyone deserves impeachment over this, it should apply retroactively to President Obama. Because Obama was president during Trump's presi...

And if he said anything suggesting he did know something then that proves he knew nothing, because if he knew anything he wouldn't be dumb enough to admit it.

Re: Orange is the new President

So if I understand the defenses of Trump in this thread, it's that Trump's rants about witch hunts are not because he is worried about what Mueller's investigation might turn up, but is Trump's civic-minded attempt to avoid seeing taxpayer funds wasted on pointless investigations (especially when t...

Could a Democrat get away with expressing a hope that a foreign intelligence service will hack his political opponent's emails?
In all fairness: before Trump exposed the depth of the rot in the GOP base, I would have doubted even a Republican would get away with all the shit Trump has.
