Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

And, duh, we don't have tank divisions near the Fulda Gap anymore, and that's what it takes to not have your forward positions overrun. We're not going back there, and if the Euros are scared, they should look to their own budgets first.

Re: Fragments of an avotoast anthropology

The 'You' is straight out of a 30s recruitment poster imo, that's the way they're tying it up.

Eta a local actual Irish bar back home has an old bill :

"You!

Belong under the flags with your mates!"

With the same type.

The British use the word "corn" for any sort of grain, not just what we call corn and they call maize.
'corn' means 'seed-part', hence barleycorn and pepper corn.

Re: Petty annoyances

If my phone draws to much power (say, I turn on GPS for Uber, and activate my phone camera to take a photo) it dies and I lose literally all my config data and settings, basically a shitty factory reset. This happens if the battery is at less than 60 percent.

Re: Fragments of an avotoast anthropology

According to a November 2017 Economist/YouGov poll, 17 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 now believe that a man inviting a woman out for a drink “always” or “usually” constitutes sexual harassment. I see this in the wild now. People totally freaked out over conversing with other people in real life.
