    ‘Twould be more accurate to say “If they do exist, they either can’t get to Earth or are staying the hell away from Earth.” It’s a huge universe. I can fully understand why all intelligent life would stay away from a planet _insert jeremiad about how narcissistic, obsessed with conspicuous consumption, obsessed with celebrity, and listens to…[Read more]

    Minute-by-minute. So you’ve been to South Dakota, I take it?

    But seriously, yeah, the problem is that people don’t understand the concept of scale. Similarly, climate does change even without human intervention, but never so rapidly. It takes a geologic time scale.

    Thank you. I took one look at how the more toxic Dems *cough*Daily Kos*cough* were handling this, and yeah, unsurprisingly, everyone but Meteor Blades was attacking Meteor Blades and using a commercial genealogy site as if it was an official statement from the Cherokee.

    To be fair, Trump could very well be the first Indian POTUS. Of course,…[Read more]

    “So there it is, right? Memory is infallible, eyewitnesses can’t be trusted, there’s no way we should believe an accusation of sexual assault several decades after it happened. Right?”

    One edit: Should read “memory is fallible”. But this still doesn’t change this: Ford and the other alleged (covering my legal ass here) victims knew Kav…[Read more]

    Yeah, when you conflate the two, things get…yeah.

    However, there is definitely a correlation between being a domestic abuser and shooting people. Also a correlation between being an incel and shooting people. Wow, who knew misogyny would correlate so well to murder? Lots of people would.

    It’s an interesting defense, since someone who raped one woman didn’t rape 3.7 billion women. So, you see, he’s a nice guy after all.

    I rigged the personality test on Pokémon Mystery Dungeon to be a Mudkip.

    Not actually a sin, but okay.

    Well, there was his talk about Chinese mercantilism…

    Anyway, yeah, I always end up saying “It’s not killing the bees, but I killed the wasps.” (I had a major wasp infestation earlier this year.)

    Lie Detector was a cute game, but when you’re accused of a crime, you will be stressed.

    We can only suss out lies by looking for inconsistencies.

    Antivaxxers, building a bridge to the 19th century.

    What’s amazing to me is, people still think crowdfunding is the greatest thing. I mean, it worked for Salk, but that was then. This is the era of scams on every crowdfunding site.

    I won’t go as far as the MSM in saying millennials are serial killers (RIP malls, dating, drive-in movies, drive-thrus, etc.), but millennials are certainly…[Read more]

    Yeah, even most /x/ folks seem to know they’re a con.

    Plus, the metaphor doesn’t make sense. Bakers don’t assemble crumbs to make a cake.

    Granted, they’re not the first ones to use bad metaphors. *cough*the entirety of The World is Flat by the only guy even more disconnected from reality than Trumpsters*cough*

    This is going to be one of those like when everyone said “If Hillary doesn’t win, a racist is going to be president.” as if that had never happened before in the entire history of the United States, isn’t it?

    It makes my blood boil too, and “boil” just happens to rhyme with the reason the US is fine with it. Well, one reason. (There is a…[Read more]

    You’re (somewhat) right, but only somewhat. In Minnesota about two decades ago, it wasn’t just whites involved in human trafficking and gang rape of Indian women, Somalis were as well.

    But don’t forget about the white traffickers and rapists. It was the Somalis who added clitoridectomy to the mix as well, though.

    It’s not exactly PC to say…[Read more]

    By the way, today’s WaPo has a look back at Technocracy, Inc. and how it relates to modern Silicon Valley.

    There were Technocracy, Inc. types all throughout the Clinton campaign as well. One of the things that really skeezed me about them.

    It’s no surprise at all. People forget when gun control first caught on in this country. It wasn’t on the left. It was Ronald Reagan, taking guns out of the hands of Black Panthers.

    For Indians, our experience has been that everyday racists tend to get creative, doing things like drugging you, driving you up a cliff, wrapping you in a blanket,…[Read more]

    That thing about warning signs of heart attack in women is especially important. There are still those (especially older doctors, people tend to cling to what they were taught, and the older you are, the more out of date that information is) who cling to the “small man” myth, that is, that male and female bodies are the same except for the…[Read more]

    It’s a possibility, but strikes me as idle speculation about Hitler. Basically, Hitler’s grandmother, Maria Schicklgruber, was a maid for a Jewish household, and the argument is that possibly she had an affair with one of the men of the household, and that man was the father of Hitler’s father, Alois Hitler, né Schicklgruber. Doesn’t sound like…[Read more]

    Nothing new. Remember the “warrior gene”, found coincidentally in populations (never white populations) known for being warlike?

    If you say “Okay, do you have any evidence to back up your assertions?”, cries of “PoMo!” will ensue. Which, to be fair, postmodern types are a pain in the ass as well (e.g., arguing that male domination is tied to…[Read more]

    Make them biodegradable. Anyone suffering brain damage, such as from a stroke, might need them.
