Yessir, a bold new vision for, uh...oh geez, you know what I'm talkin about. That thing? It's got the wheels on it, kinda purply with anchovies and those little pointy things? America! That's it! Who wouldn't vote for him?

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

One note: if you've never made bread before, the shaping step can be tricky to nail. Watch a video. And accept you'll probably get it wrong the first time. For anyone who is interested in starting with bread, I've been a big fan of the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day approach, which I think the...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

This article has some interesting insights about Colorado's mail-in elections that started in 2014 More people voted by mail in Colorado than ever in 2016 — upward of 2.6 million of the 2.8 million ballots cast, according to the latest unofficial tallies from the Secretary of State’s Office. But ov...

Re: Petty annoyances

Wait, where is Apple still using .mov? Pretty sure that’s still what my iPhone videos upload as Huh. gross. FWIW Apple's native apps are never very good regardless of the platform. There are plenty of alternative editing apps in the app store. And if you need to convert video formats (which I do fr...

Some things still require some substitution from the absolutely preferred thing (like getting a white onion instead of yellow onion)
Fortunately you can still tie the yellow ones to your belt.

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

I don't even know what I read. It felt like the author was masturbating into my face. But with words! Really Pham. Such language demonstrates a disheartening lack of respect for our learned legal authorities. Perhaps spending the remainder of your life in solitary confinement will teach you some ma...

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

I didn’t need to read that. Your idea of what you need is based on a narrow conception of your own self-interest. But if you read it, contemplate it, understand it, embrace it, you will discover a far more profound sense of self-interest aligned with the common good. Trust me on this. You'll thank ...

iMacs are all-inclusive and setup in minutes , and you can get the base model for $1200 And they do tend to last damn near forever. We have one in our office that's been running more or less continually since January 2010. Mine is a mere 8 years old and still able to hold its own on most non-gaming...

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

Finally, unlike legal liberalism, common-good constitutionalism does not suffer from a horror of political domination and hierarchy, because it sees that law is parental, a wise teacher and an inculcator of good habits. Just authority in rulers can be exercised for the good of subjects, if necessar...

Re: The Right Way to View Competing Political Horrors

Should I feel that way about guns? I used to. Nobody who intended to erode the right would ever get my vote. I’ve come to the view that single issue can take you into pretty uncomfortable company and that you need to evaluate the landscape under some theory of the best bad option. Right now for me ...

For all the ways a president H.

There is no possible way that anybody could have foreseen that Trump might make aid contingent on whether a leader supported him personally. Obviously not. Even those who were initially wrong about Trump were wrong for the right reasons. Maybe they wouldn't be such willfully ignorant assholes if sn...
