And her full name is Antigone. 

I swear, if there's even a hint that she's going to get locked up in a mausoleum or something, I'm gonna punch the scriptwriters in the face.


Also, save for the final two minutes of last episode, it's is boring as fuck.

Her life is already the tomb her father made for her.

I wonder if sales of Hagakure are soaring in wake of season 2 of True Detective, much like season one prompted purchases of The King in Yellow?  It was pretty prominently displayed in episode one in Ani Bezzerides' home, alongside a less prominent copy of A Book of Five Rings and some what look like some Fairbairn and Sykes knife-fighting manuals.

Well tough luck poseurs, my samurai killer manuals are well over a decade old. My knifefighting manuals too, though I only keep digitized copies of those nowadays.

Who the hell is Ani Bezzerides?

Character in True Detective.  Likes knives, has a New Age hippie cult leader for a father and, works for the County Sherrif's office and spends most of her time staring into the middle distance while looking mildly perturbed

Clarence Thomas has a lot of....unusual positions.  I wonder if his beliefs about blacks in America are any way reflected about his homosexuality in America?

Robin is a very good writer. He clarifies things really well.

I can totally see how his beliefs about race would apply to other minorities.

It's so weird. Granted, Kennedy went kinda floral, and I do wish he stuck more to the solid jurisprudence stuff, but the dissent was WACKY.

The legend of ECH notwithstanding, I'm considering being a cook in Norway now.

Sorry, it's gonna be like this for a while.

The dissents read like a bad reddit troll.

Someone was whining on my friend's page, and he was all, "you better step off, or someone's going to drop a house on you."


I really need to remember that line.

Well, I have learned very much about this Thwack person.  :lulz:

The question is, does he deserve minimum wage, or would that raise inflation?  :?

You'd have to ask a scientist.


There's no way to answer the question right now, because there is no scientific way to understand economics, by definition.

Did you see the piece on NPR that put it to a blind taste test?  It was really interesting.  The takeaway was that, if washed well enough first, it basically really does taste like a tough piece of calamari.

The magic of deep frying!

That's some solidly aggressive assbaggery right there.

Quick question: If economics is not a science, and by your mode of thought there can't possibly be a science of economics, then how do you suggest we analyze the factors which determine the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services?
