Maybe not so much "new" as "you're a prophet, and a lot of people are only catching up now and see the way this behavior can fracture a voting bloc"

Ok, without my former glibness, my main problem with the JDs isn't that they're criticizing the Dems from the Left.  I think the Dems are too centrist, and too willing to concede to the right without fighting.  A strong progressive force pulling Left would be beneficial, IMO.

My problem is they seem to be attacking more than persuading, using the same tactics (and often, the same arguments) that the Right uses.  I simply don't feel that's an effective way to go. 

I just need to know which one of you is Tigra, and which one is Bunny.

Glad (?) to see the US and UK aren't that different.

That is really excellent news, man!  I'm happy for you.

Have you been able to hold on to a car?

I probably shouldn't be laughing as hard as I am at this.

Eh, who am I kidding?

What's extra weird is the people who don't care.  Not like, "I'm kinda racist so I really don't want to know about this stuff," more like, "I have no real curiosity or interest in this, so I literally don't know any of this ever happened."

For example, one of the guitarists in Frost Heaves is a really nice guy, and absolutely not intentionally racist, but I had to explain redlining to him - which isn't that odd, as it's fairly special interest, but in order to do so I had to give him a brief intro to systemic racism in America, which he didn't know was and is a thing.  He couldn't get his head around the fact that the government intentionally wrote racist laws post Jim Crow.  He was at least willing to learn, but it was really weird to me to have to go back that far.

Hi there, not-new guy!

Can't we just get it over with and become a four party system? The Asshole Right, the GOP, the Dems, and the Fart-Huffers.

I mean, I'd probably be more politically aligned with the Huffers, but still.

Yup.  His track record for good books is pretty impressive.  Snow Crash, Zodiac, The Diamond Age, Anathem... I didn't much care for his historic trilogy, but I'm not a history buff.

And the Dragon has "Poor Impulse Control" tattooed on his forehead.

Problem: since I moved, there's a Chipotle I can easily access on my way home from work.

(Hopeful) Solution: I still get about 1 to 1.5 hours of vigorous exercise twice a week. Not sure what the calorie exchange is but I guess I'll find out in the next few weeks.

Research results: the calorie balance means fuck all when you get a severe case of hyperthyroidism and your body becomes a nuclear furnace that vaporizes everything you put into it.

At the time of this post, I weighed about 165 lbs (88.2 litres). A year later, I weighed about 138. Now, nearly two years later, I weigh 192 and have the biggest ass and thighs of my life.

So, silver linings then?

-Likes that kind of stuff.
