Re: Our Boys In Blue

Jury nullification shouldn't be anyone's "tool". Insofar as you can control it at all, which has me pretty unconvinced frankly. It mostly happens when the broad majority in the region roundly reject the premise of the trial at hand. Sometimes that's terrible, backward thinking. Other time...

I need to make a reminder to stab my hope with a chopstick. Not to kill it, just to keep the fucking thing from standing up.


I said as much. People who vote for Republicans LIKE that sort of thing.

Re: Our Boys In Blue

There are two kinds of arguments about jury nullification that I've seen. The first, and much hotter one, is the argument over whether or not the system should account for and include jury nullification, because a lot of people like to claim that it is an important part of the judicial process. This...

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

People keep saying that this was a gaffe, she destroyed her campaign, stuck her foot in her mouth, etc, but the polls were basically tied before, and the election is two weeks out. See what the numbers on the next poll are. I really don't think this is actually going to hurt her. People who vote for...

<extremely Harrison Ford voice> Get Off My Lawn

Do we have a thread focused particularly for the age war that's basically killing us as a society, the economic crimes of the baby boomers and their lasting impact on milennials? Or, I dunno, that's kind of an aspect of a rot that pervades every other aspect of everything - the environment, electora...

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

I realize that you guys are male (as am I) and perhaps being a bit dickish for comedy but you can't really sit there and tell me you don't understand the implication that 'because Its HER turn' has in a feminist context? Sure its worded poorly and that's why it got shelved for the better slogan but...

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

Discovering that "I'm with her" only barely lost out to "because it's her turn" as a campaign rallying cry internally was pretty telling. She doesn't have a cause to speak about now because according to her, she didn't have a cause to run on in the first place.

When a person devotes their life to making the world worse, them leaving the world is a thing to be celebrated. Decorum is just erasing the victims.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Although it may bear pointing out that you don't do most of your tasting with your tongue. You taste with your nose. Your tongue has receptors for five, maybe six chemical types. There's "this is calorie-rich, keep eating this" (sweet/savory), "this contains a vital nutrient, keep ea...

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Yeah there's lots of stuff that's got sour or bitter tastes to them, but I mean something that is entirely sour or entirely bitter with nothing else to it, the way salt is just salty and nothing else.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

I gots a foodin' question. So like ... five tastes, right? The five basic tastes. We got sugar as being basically just raw sweet. Salt is basically raw salty. MSG is pretty much raw umami or whatever you call it.

Are there things that are pure bitter or pure sour?
