Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

I listened to him in small doses back in the 80's and early 90's. He wasn't doing conspiracy stuff then. But he was doing "The liberals are wrong about everything and are destroying this country". Yeah but you kind of have to adjust your story when things are still going to shit despite the Republi...

2% death rate is pretty high. The flu kills about 0.1% or so.
2% is on par with the Spanish Flu, which killed 50 million people in a much less populous and globalized world.

OTOH One hundred million or so people in China have been, ahem, persuaded to download a party-propaganda app named “Study Xi, Strong Nation,” which makes users watch inculcation videos and take quizzes in a gamified, points-based system. It also allegedly gives the government access to the complete...

The 4-day workweek is expanding In the U.S., Shake Shack started testing the idea a year and a half ago. The burger chain shortened managers' workweeks to four days at some stores and found that recruitment spiked, especially among women. Shake Shack's president, Tara Comonte, says the staff loved ...

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

Dancing, mostly. How shocking that you have better luck than average getting dates while doing well for yourself in a sport that skews heavily female. Also, I've met you in real life. I have no trouble believing your online dating experiences were tire fires in comparison to real life interaction. ...

Re: The Bumper Sticker Thread

Yeah I don't know anymore. When I was in the Army, many, many, moons ago it was a running joke. You would make that sign and try to get people to look down at it. When they did they got hit in the shoulder. Or something like that. The rules were always a little fuzzy and my memory is fairly hazy on...

Re: Dancing With the Dems

If the Republican president were normal, I would say the Democratic Party should self-destruct sooner than let Sanders become the party standard-bearer. The same way I said this about the Republican Party four years ago. But the Republican president is Trump. Trump is so amazingly spectacularly bad...

Re: The Bumper Sticker Thread

It definitely started out that way , and despite media heavyweights like the washington Examiner, Breitbart, and RT assuring us lol j/k u mad bro, it is increasingly displayed by certain classes of people and specific enough contexts that it is no longer clear that it's just a joke. Far as I'm conc...

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

Dancing, mostly. This past Saturday I had some great dances with this super cute girl who's finishing up a Materials Science PhD at Caltech, and is super close with one of my other dance friends (whom I flirted with a bit but who isn't interested.) And we've been chatting back and forth on Facebook...

4b. Also, there seems to be a mismatch between what women expect and the men who are actually out there. My brother does the dating app thing, and his stories about this are remarkable. He's mid-30s, 6', in shape, has interesting hobbies, has a PhD, a 6-figure job, and no debt, but he's still had m...

I would definitely like Bloomberg a lot more if he stopped pretending he was going to be president and just paid for a troll campaign against Trump.

When I was in Rome several years ago, on a tour of the Forum, I picked up a fist-sized piece of marble off the ground and brought it home.

If Rome wants to protect their ancient architectural debris, they should post more guards.
This is basically this entire argument in a nutshell.
