Re: Star Trek Wankery

I think some of the paperback novels of the 80s dealt with this. In the case of Spock, for instance, Vulcans slept much less than humans, so normally he would just meditate in his off time in his quarters (which were kept at a higher temp and higher gravity than the common areas of the ship) I think...

I don't know if anyone else drinks enough 'fringe' Coke products to notice, but all of the stores around here have only 4 Coca-Cola branded sodas available: Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, and Sprite. No flavors, no caffeine-free colas, no anything besides those 4. And since my wife mainly drinks Cherr...

Because that’s what happened to the western land grants to poor white people until prairie populism rose up as a reaction to that dynamic. And to the extent the farms of Prairie were able to rise above subsistence agriculture (which many never did, as all those Depression era WPA photos show) they d...

Warren is right though. You give all the (until 5 minutes ago, rich) white people money, and you give all the black people land, pretty soon the white people are going to have all the land and the money again.

One of the problems I have with the current Reconstruction revisionists is that there was really no way to un-fuck the Southern economy in the short term. Maybe, maybe, something like 'industrial socialism' that eventually transitioned to a 'neoliberal' order may have worked. But that would have bee...

It seems to me that in today’s 6-3 Bostock v Clayton county decision, the precedents cited and the logic used could have wound up with the result that you can’t fire someone for being transgender, but you could for being gay/lesbian/bi. https://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/bostock-v-clayton-c...

Re: Police Politics Poll

My take is hybrid of 1 and 2 (I picked 2 in the poll) Nobody likes riots, and people don’t like riots more than they don’t like police brutality. But the negative feeling for the riots blows back on the incumbent. But more, people don’t like that they don’t have a job. But more than anything, the pe...
