It appears too late to ask this question, but here goes: Can I just throw some meat on a grill set over burning charcoal in my back yard without someone getting on my case about what I choose to call it?

I'm inclined to think that the PAC is Qatari backed, but have absolutely no proof of that.

Re: Legion's air disease is all in your head (spoilers)

So after I'm not even sure how long, I finally got around to starting Season 2. I have no idea what's going on but it sure looks amazing. It's much like Hannibal in that I am less interested in the main characters than in oooogling the visuals and wondering about the person responsible for creating...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

The problem is that NYC has at least 5 government entities to deal with, NYC, NYS, NJ, MTA and the Feds. So, aside from the Feds (which are relatively not corrupt) you have 4 layers of graft to deal with. That’s a lot of people and friends to bribe. The feds - specifically the Obama Administration ...

One thing that is probably a net benefit of social media is that everyone eventually learns all the different arguments 3rd thru 6th century CE Christians had with each other.

Re: Star Trek Wankery

I think some of the paperback novels of the 80s dealt with this. In the case of Spock, for instance, Vulcans slept much less than humans, so normally he would just meditate in his off time in his quarters (which were kept at a higher temp and higher gravity than the common areas of the ship) I think...

No flavors, no caffeine-free colas, no anything besides those 4. And since my wife mainly drinks Cherr...

Warren is right though. You give all the (until 5 minutes ago, rich) white people money, and you give all the black people land, pretty soon the white people are going to have all the land and the money again.
