Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

It's really sad, because like ... they are legitimately miserable, for perfectly understandable reasons, but they've chosen to react to their loneliness and despair with projection and hostility, and just turned into this bitter circlejerk of hatred and (frequently) misogynist violence.

Re: Science!

I remember getting really hung up on a question in a gifted program test like that when I was five or six. The question was, like, "why do we put stamps on envelopes" and I was completely stumped for minutes, and eventually was just like, I have no idea why we use stamps on the envelope in...

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

When your parody involves dressing marching around the floor in full SS regalia and needs to be explained that no, actually, it's deep ironic satire, then it's shit and you need to not do it.

Fair use is a far higher standard than people think it is. "But I talked over it" doesn't mean shit.

Re: Books

It's also worth noting that Gladstone is probably the first author I can recall seeing that actually gets ebook pricing? Book 6 in the series, Ruin of Angels, came out on Tuesday. It's 576 pages, not a short book by any means. The list price for the paperback is $25, the price Amazon wants from me i...

Re: An Open Market on Economics

The hack checker page is probably only there to get people to agree to waive their right to sue by using it. Returning an accurate result is incidental at best - you want them to sign up for TrustedID.

Re: Books

I can't remember where I first heard about it, but I've been tearing through Max Gladstone's Craft Sequence recently, and I cannot recommend it enough. Sort of a modern high fantasy kind of thing, hard to describe, but the kindle compilation of the first five novels is $12 on Amazon and drm-free so ...

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

I'm 34, have a US J.D., and speak fluent english. I have no job or job offer, no award or medal, no intent or means to invest. 33 points, I'm in. Were the J.D. foreign, as one assumes it might be were I applying to immigrate, I'd still have 30 and be eligible. Despite the complete lack of employment...

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

I technically qualify for immigration on that test! Even though I'm definitely the last sort of person that it should be screening for. The RAISE act is total garbage even at its intended purpose.

Because the DACA policy was to put in protections for immigrant children that the DREAM act was supposed to offer, but couldn't thanks to at the time eleven years of Republican obstructionism.

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

I think I had a lot of weird stressy dreams last night, but the only one I remember was replaying Metal Gear Rising and getting near the end and noticing an arrow on the side of the codec window, and when I hit right it opened up a page with like ... ten completely new characters to talk to. And rea...
