Re: The real criminal is your neighbor

What percent of minority moms are : a) anti vaxxers; b) scared of everything other than white people; c) drive the HOA to action against lawn and shutter color violations, and so on. It's really "college educated, stay at home, suburbanite, household income in the top 2 quintiles", plus maybe anothe...

Re: Home $weet Home

I’m a lover of the open plan and the base assumptions of such spaces is use of seating to create separation. For the most part irrespective of anything else, if you can’t deal with seating defining space you need lots of little rooms.

IOW embrace the separation, but make it...

Market Failure!

I thought Mack Weldon was a CIA agent who did what needed to be done in the 80s. You can catch up on his adventures in the periodical section of your grocery store, usually next to guns and ammo which this month is highlighting an AMAZING 1911 that is totally tactical and totally different from any ...

Re: Putin on the Writs

If the Hill report is true - that there was a meeting with between DNC lawyers and the FBI before FISA warrant was issued, that's not a good look. I do believe there were active Russia attempts to influence the election but I also believe the FISA process is politically compromised and we need a lot...

Yeah, gross. It's a state fair food that should be relegated to life next to the fried twinkie. Nobody really acts like its some kind of ancient family recipe like they do with cannoli though.

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

The flip side of this type of analysis is how it contributes to coders being viewed as contractors. You'd ideally like to have a roving band of process automators who can go around companies of size, and that's the role someone who self automated would migrate to. In the absence of sufficient org sc...

My wife, who is super into language acquisition and is pretty good at it overall, has been experimenting with Pimsleur, and she thinks they are more onto something than any other modern method she has used, which is a lot of them. https://www.pimsleur.com/the-pimsleur-method It's a lot about optimiz...

Re: What are you reading?

It covers the whole region : Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland. Sweden about 10M, Denmark, Finland, Norway each about 5.5M. Iceland tiny at like 350K.

It’s reasonable to ask questions about commonalities and “the miracle” with that sample size.

Audible of "The Almost Nearly Perfect People: Truth Behind the Nordic Miracle" - Michael Booth is way better than I thought based on a terrible title.

For all the legitimate complaints you can make about right-wingers, THEY'RE not the ones proposing laws like "Let's make it illegal for fast-food restaurants to operate in low-income neighborhoods, since The Poors obviously can't be trusted to handle it." Nope. The Left is in a hyper-irritated, dam...
