Re: When journalism goes bad

Oh I don't think there's a lot consistent about the model, I think its just how they see things. The conservative view of the second amendment in contrast to their view of all law enforcement is wacky and always has been. It's the mirror image of the left's "racist government institutions lets give ...

Re: When journalism goes bad

The model as I understand it goes something like: - The world is composed of scumbags and good people - Scumbags don't respect authority or participate in social institutions that would moderate their native scumbaggishness. - Scumbags/lawbreakers will do literally anything, they are functionally pr...

I'll be honest, I don't see a lot of bleeding hearts in practice. I hear calls for stiffer punishment for opioids daily around here.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

I don’t understand why agents don’t act to equilibriate terms of deals. Maybe different clients have different clout? Maybe they value different things? Maybe she valued up-front pay more than terms like no extra fees for reshoots, while Wahlberg wanted different terms? Maybe a given client will ha...

Re: Food

I think you need to clarify though because early sous vide adopters, for some reason all the british guys I read, said to sear first then bag it. Which, that's generally bad advice, but it does suggest at some point the nomenclature was necessary.

I believe in mounting an attack on low hanging fruits where available. Like if I were going to get people to try to understand what wines they like, I'd first try to get them to understand what alcohol, acidity, tannin, sugar, and body do to the impression of a wine in your face. I would not talk ab...

Caught a re airing of a Mad Men episode "The Suitcase" in which Don and Peggy are trying to put together a samsonite pitch with the Ali/Clay - Liston fight as a backdrop. I remembered it being good, maybe the best episode. It was really really good.

It's really dumb as far as I can tell. The picture is non linkable and there is no tile that is. There's "follow the link in bio". Which may or may not be at all obvious because tapping on the poster just gives you their feed in a different format with pics again but non clickable. You click on a de...

Link looks like one triology?

Would a family need more than one account? Like could I use my wife's account like we share a prime account and add or remove books on my devices?

Re: What are you reading?

Ok thanks. I guess I had intuited there was some amount of included content like a streaming service, so when the wife said subscription and buying on top of that I was confused. It's not that bad really with one book per month.

Re: What are you reading?

I'm new to audible. Or wife is more precisely. I was confused to learn that they are both a subscription and a purchase model. I think in the subscription model you still buy titles so re-listening is always a thing. You get like 1 $15 credit toward a book per month for the subscription, but I'm not...

Does anyone have an opinion on whether an Audible subscription is worth it as opposed to just buying what you listen to?

Re: When journalism goes bad

I don't think Sandy's is a fair take in the sense that any argument about the value of cohesive social institutions would be subject to the kind of criticism that such arguments are always about marginalizing those outside those institutions. It may be true in a sense but also kind of it's not the w...

Re: When journalism goes bad

I'm not fond of explanations quite that simple, but I'm also not going to the mat for the current conservative consensus in this regard. What I would resist is something like "there is nothing to conservatism but racism and there never has been".

So, I just got on instagram a lil while ago. I like travel and food pics in a feed, but, um, linking through to content like a recipe is pretty retarded? Why do people like insta for content delivery with linking that bad?

Re: When journalism goes bad

It feels like the racist veneer description is a bit too simple. By analogy the left just wants free stuff paid for by people they don’t like and left elites want the power to decide who gets what. There is some truth there but I’m not going to say that’s all there is. I think conservatives worried ...

Re: When journalism goes bad

Conservatives and cop suckers of all stripes believe that. Civil society is an unstable equilibrium and anarchy awaits us all at the slightest disturbance. Slippery slope arguments were my favorites in college but they are the worst.
