Re: Mr. Robot: with spoilers

I'm sort of meh on Janice, tbh. The whole thing surounding that 'Dark Army Middle Manager' plotline just strikes me as them trying way too hard, esp for this stage of the game. Who knows, maybe it's some unconscious bias on my part, because Irving last season was awesome. It took me a bit to figure ...

Kurt Suzuki is a catcher for the Nats who wore a MAGA hat to the White House and received a bad touch from President Trump.
Now I'm glad he got beaned by that pitch.
If it works the way it does in the movies, he gets hit in the head again and becomes a Bernie Bro.

Re: Fragments of an avotoast anthropology

We should just use a language that doesn't have separate male and female pronouns. Sumerian, Hittite, Chinese, and Quenya all fit the bill.
Chinese 'he' and 'she' are pronounced the same, but spelled differently. 他 vs 她

Open-plan offices are a completely different crime against humanity. I'm hoping they're on their way out, because they're never going to show any of their supposed benefits. They're not on their way out, though, because of the secret benefit that is the real driver: they're cheap. All that crap abo...

Re: The Road to Damascus

That is, in all fairness, not the strangest or newest thing ever. It's often cheaper and easier to abandon stuff than to take it with you, and to blow it up rather than have it fall into the wrong hands. Using F-15s does seem like the expensive and risky way of doing it rather than wiring up the bu...

Kurds respond: The Syrian Democratic Forces — the blanket group that emerged four years ago, led by the Kurdish YPG as a trusted ally of the U.S. — reacted with deep dismay, saying it had hoped the U.S. "would fulfill its obligations to mediate a political solution from all sides to stop war."

No way?! US foreign policy screwing over the Kurds?! eta That said, as I said on twitter, the alternative is asking for an indefinite US military presence to deter aggression from a erstwhile NATO ally. Which is both undoubtedly politically unpopular and quite likely not a sustainable course of acti...
