Re: Thar's Silicon In Them Thar Hills - Westworld w/ spoilers

The whole "break the simulation" thing by making the computer perform an illogical operation was already old by the time Star Trek TOS's run ended. To be sure there are quite a few too many "oh c'mon" moments, but I'm enjoying it anyway. It *looks* great if nothing else. Also, Game of Thrones World!...

Re: This is how you get guillotines

I hope Rand Paul fully recovers. But how did he get a test without symptoms or contacts with a known carrier “out of an abundance of caution” while people with full blown symptoms are pleading for them? No shit. I was already wondering last week how the fuck someone decids the entire fucking NBA ge...

Re: Twitter!

Calling it the "Chinese Virus" is absolutely appropriate. This thing is wreaking havoc upon the world because of the monstrous behavior of the Chinese government . And not the Chinese people, much less Koreans or Japanese who live in the US, who also are catching the vitriol. Damnit Warren don't ma...

Re: Twitter!

Naturally, Muphry's law strikes! Certainly the virus doesn't care what we call it, and as long as people know what they're talking about it doesn't really matter. For the layperson, the pedantry around it is absurd. OTOH, I have Asian cow-orkers who have been yelled at in public and reduced to tears...

Re: This is how you get guillotines

IMO, the fact that they sold stock isn't nearly as bad as the fact that they lied and downplayed a potentially deadly virus to uphold their stock value before doing so. I agree. Burr's crime isn't selling, Burr's crime was sounding the alarm only to a small group of rich connected constituents, kno...

TBF nobody under 50 watches Fox News, so they're just playing to their audience.

Or does conservative callousness extend even to family members. I swea...

You keep being you, Fox News. They take the same chart everyone else has and manages to find and trumpet the least important thing about it.

My wife made one last run to the store this morning (over my protestations). In the elevator back down to the parking garage she ended up with a couple of older ladies. They noted to each other (observing my wife's cart with one small 4 pack of TP) "see, some people are buying reasonable amounts of ...

This is seriously funny After we voted, I told him I was upset that the Democratic Party had not prioritized a woman and/or a person of color, and that he didn’t support a woman with a real shot at the nomination—a candidate he loved— when it mattered. He was understandably defensive. I wanted him ...
