And all the Europeans living and working in the UK.

My own shift co-worker is Spanish, and 90% of the maintenance team are Polish, Spanish or Brazilian.

Good point.

I'm really curious how Gibraltar is gonna work itself out.


Spain will make demands and the UK will tell them to go shit in their collective hat.

International shipping is gonna be FUN again.

That, and what happens to all the Brits currently living and working in various EU countries.

I just read between 20 and 50 people killed.  Damn.

[Edit: Fell victim to my own pet peeve.  Wounded, not killed, and most likely from tear gas.]

What's the time difference?  I hear first results will be coming in around midnight, London time.

Ew.  Dead rich creepy guy with serious childhood issues is rich, creepy, dead.

Not sure if there's much to add other than poking the corpse.

When a narrative gives you a mystery that twists your head, go with the twist. At least until it threatens your existence.

Can it be you left us with somewhat of a "good" ending?


I'm not going to question it.

Yeah, the Watch List thing really bugs me.

So, after much hemming and hawing, I've registered over at www.complexityexplorer.org and signed up to take a course in Dynamical Systems.  Supposedly, it only requires high school algebra.  We'll see.

Looking to get the feel of this under my belt, then taking more advanced courses.  Not sure what it will lead to, but it'll look pretty bitchin' on my resume/CV.

So, I know that PD has a minor split over gun control.  I'm conflicted about it myself.

Anyway, I kind of loved the Democratic filibuster.  Only took 8 years to find their balls.

But the bills the GOP agreed to hear sort of underscore my conflict.

I think closing the gun show loophole is a good idea.  But the one about barring people on the terrorist watch list from having guns bothers me, for the main reason that the watch list is horribly maintained.  Cain would probably have the most relevant links on that one.

What also bothers me is that a lot of people on my FB feed are like, "we won!"  No you didn't.  The Dems forced congress to hear and debate and vote on the bills.  Which means a party-line vote, which means the bills will most likely not pass.

But still.... progress?

Fair enough.  What would be a better "classic meme" to use for it?

Maybe just a picture of Trump and then "Accuses Democrats of covering up Islamic Terrorism/Has Campaign Advisor Who Accepts Bribes To Downplay Pakistani State-Sponsored Islamic Terrorism"?

Like so:

via Imgflip Meme Generator

(h/t QG)

So the idea is to start with a complex, nuanced truth, and then work it so none of the complexity is lost, but it still works as a meme.

Please note that no single person needs to have the idea, the complexity, and the reduction.  Any one of the three will work.

Aaaaaand, go!
