Re: Brexit: what say ye?

What if we told the French to give another go at it?

Eta or the Italians?

And I think the implication that lighter colored hair was super recessive, (or dark hair super dominant), thus why the whole thing about how Joeffrey et al could never be Bobby B's kids.

Goddamn. The new Catch 22 is absolute genius.
Is it still set in WW2 (& the Army Air Corps in Italy) or is it updated in setting?

Listening to a podcast today, one of the guys mentioned something about 'All the Stark kids wind up going in different directions'.

Re: The Abortion Thread

Also, there is a very long history in the pro life movement of explicitly comparing abortion and abortion law to slavery and slavery law. In other words they're not just coming up with this 14th amendment argument on the fly.

Re: The Abortion Thread

I think they would argue that Roe & Casey are flawed and the fetus has some inalienable 14th amendment protections. I sort of agree with twitter that this probably won't fly (I think - I do think Trump being able to replace someone from the RBG wing would make it a very close call). Otherwise they'v...

MIC advertising in the DC area is so ubiquitous, it's mostly just background noise.

Re: Fishing for analogues

I think you're getting close with the latter. You probably had numerous little encampments all over the world in the bronze and iron ages, but the ones that took root and had a surplus became martime trading empires like the Phonecians, Carthaginians, and Vikings (for an incomplete list). They all h...
