Guys!  I just learned the NRA was the reason why the North ended the war and stopped slavery!   :lulz:

what the what

Oh, right.

Who's got a properly snarky rebuttal on this?

Even weirder physics could see it reborn as a gravity drive.

well, that's the fucking thing.  It looks like gravity is shared by all universes, which means the drive doesn't work, which means no space demons.

I could fucking cry.

The universe is both incredibly weird and horribly mundane at the same time.  It's fantastically upsetting.

Yeah, there's a lot of stuff going on.  Our brains really don't intuitively grasp that much complexity, do they?

As far as I can tell, no proof of quid pro quo is there.  It's shady, but I have the feeling it's politics as normal.

I truly admire your ethics in not taking this place down for a massive profit, already.

Today is my and Alty's first anniversary.

We gorged on sushi at a restaurant a few blocks from the house that for some reason, we have never tried. It was delicious. I am distended with sushi. He is Skyrimming. Soon, we will go upstairs and watch TV in bed.

Best possible day.

Anyway, hi there PD. I'm here because I'm miserable, cranky, and tired, and according to the newsfeed I'm in the perfect mood for PD.com.

Since getting my thyroid disease treated in August, my range of emotions has expended past "vague sense of dying" that defined the previous six months. I have added feeling sad, stupid, and lonely to the mix.

This too shall pass and all that, but fuck it. I feel like whuppin' on some motherfucker.

 :FFF:

I'm really glad you stepped in. I can still be wooed by this kind of writing, I suppose.

Speaking of prophecy, it was exactly a year ago today I said Trump would get the nomination.

Updating.

Interesting article about Bayes and neuroscience.  I like how he presents the findings, but still comes away with questions.  The hypothesis makes sense, but that doesn't mean it's right.

That's amazing.

Huh. Two things stood out:

1. They say there's only 7% undecided. I'm thinking that's statistically neutral.

2. Most of them had the response of "Trump is atrocious, and would be a terrible world leader, but Clinton... I dunno. Don't like her, for reasons."

I don't feel as wtf about this anymore.

I love that you're being asked to do this sort of stuff.  It really sounds like the kind of stuff you'd revel in.  Happy for you.
