Re: The Well-Dressed Man

I am normally pretty far on the casual side of "Whatever, man, times change! People wear comfy clothing now! No need to dress up every time you go out in public and fly on an airplane or whatever! Big deal!" But when I was waiting for a traffic court hearing the other day I was the only person not ...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

Why should trash pickup be privatized but not policing? Because whoever controls the biggest and most guns is the government even if you chose to call it something else. And enforcing the law is necessarily a government activity. Yeah, there are perverse incentives and I'm still deeply skeptical th...

Re: The Sheriff Joe Arpaio Memorial Prison Reform Thread

Ducey is up for reelection in Nov. Appointing Joe gets him nothing since Maricopa County (3.8 million vs 3.2 million in rest of state) has proven it's already very tired of Joe. And the rest of the state is more Blue leaning than Maricopa County (so even more anti-Joe). A younger Team Red guy who i...

This is probably a super common one: "In the records, it described this beer and its techniques, which peaked the interest of the Larsons."

I wanna say our wafers were oyster crackers. I also wanna say we only did communion on Christmas and Easter and for confirmations, but I am fuzzy on the whole thing as the last time I was there was probably 1986 or so.

FWIW, it's not only the crazy-evangelical Protestant churches that go for grape juice instead of wine: the [generally liberal and progressive] United Methodist Church I was dragged to as a child also did this. I don't think that was an "anti-alcohol" move so much as a combination of "Grape juice is...

It completely misrepresents the Vox post The Vox post really is deeply stupid.

ETA: And part of the blame on that falls on Vox's headline writers/editors. Hell,...

Heel outsole came off of my venerable white new balance tennis shoes that I wear with my cargo shorts, so I had to go buy some new general-purpose athletic/tennis shoes.

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I think I might make some calculus if there are people present who cops would unfairly target. I’m not calling cops to a black guy’s house because his white friend was a dips hit IF I was certain I was safe. The only person I want going to jail is the dumbass who deserves it.
