Re: Pick Your Poisson

The thing that's bad about throttling services is that they can charge the users of those services for the needed increased capacity, they don't have to charge Netflix.

I actually prefer pods with tall walls to individual cubicles, at least for my line of work. Half-height walls aren't worth anything, imo.
Full cubes means walls you can't see over.

I can't imagine that guy's number is anywhere near fifty given how tone deaf that is. It suggests a lack of smoothness. Though I suppose he could have been an Adonis in his youth.

Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

I don't think Franken's troubles will go away immediately, if at all. If it had been 1980 rather than 2006, he might get away more cleanly, but him in 2006 is basically the same person as he is today.

Pfft. Trumpkins are never going to turn on him about pussy-grabbing. And Blues won't turn on Clinton in any meaningful way in his lifetime—and when they do turn, they'll all have been retroactively abhorring him the whole time.

Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

To my mind, the order of seriousness (least serious to most):

1. Franken
2. Clinton - Monica
3. Moore - Barely Legal
4. Trump - Pussy grabbing
5. Moore - Illegal
6. Clinton - rapes

The top two are much more forgivable than the next one, and the bottom three are unforgivable.

It's cool that there seems to be a general war brewing in the Middle East. We won't get dragged into that, and it won't destroy the world economy for a decade.

It is good to hurt the best things in Georgia, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and Ohio. Especially Ohio, NC, and Florida, since they might actually vote blue.

Dhex needs to get back to a place where he can talk to actually people socially. At this rate, he will be speaking an entirely new language by age fifty, unable to communicate with anyone else. The phenomenon will be called "dhex's aphasia."
