This is way too on the nose.  I need help verifying this is real.

The tax lawyer Trump used at todays press conference to explain away his conflicts of interest is apparently from MorganLewis.

Ok, grizzled pirate mercenary it is, then!

Yeah, people are focusing way too much on the watersports thing.

They should be focusing on the claim that the Trump campaign had sustained, purposeful contact with the Russian government at the highest levels.  That's the meat, and if it's true...

That, right there.

It also seems to stem from the same place where conservatives feel that homosexuality is gross and bad.

It's just making fun of someone because of a sexual practice, be it gay sex, pee, or cunnilingus (yes, some people think that's 'gross'.  Their loss, I suppose).

Wow, I really must be a SJW.  My first thought wasn't about the GOP hypocrisy, it was about how liberals on FB took so quickly and easily to moralistic kink-shaming.

Trump is a despicable man for many reasons, but enjoying piss play really isn't one of them.

At least I get to wear an eye patch until it is fixed.

Silver lining and all that.

Oh, and there are many, many excellent modern philosophers, most of whom have been trained in one of the philosophical disciplines we call "sciences".

O SNAP

I may be wrong, but it sounds like you may be a bit off track.

As far as I understand it, the question isn't about directly experiencing reality, it's about wholly experiencing reality.  The mechanisms so far developed limit the experience rather severely (Cf: BIP).

Perhaps this is all a devious form of fiscal stimulus -- people decide there's no use saving money anymore since we'll all be dead soon, spend a whole bunch, and then the economy recovers.

Not a story idea, but a story element:

Serial killer with hidden motivations has a knife with the following inscription engraved on the blade:

"Be the change you want to see."

Yup, I'm crying.  Good thing I'm working from home today.  It's not a pretty cry.

I read once that conservatives are pessimistic about human nature, and liberals are optimistic.

But I think that's wrong, in a way.  Conservatives are optimistic that people will be rotten (for their own benefit), and liberals are pessimistic that the pace of equality will ever speed up, because people will be rotten.

Considering re-writing/expanding on a couple of my University papers and throwing them up on Academia.edu.  I'm thinking terrorism in history might be a good niche to claim as my own.

This is your moment, sir.
