    I want to see the document he signed. If it said "Chelsea Manning" anywhere, I'm betting he's going to rot in prison.

    I think there are just an uncomfortable number of people who judge themselves and others not by what they have accomplished, but by what associated others have accomplished. The USA is the best country in the world, not because its citizens are capable of so much, but because "we" can lick any other country. My city's football team is better than your city's football team. I bought an iPhone 7, and you're still using a 5. Behold my Audi A8 / Prius / dually F350 with the Eddie Bauer package / Tesla S. It's cooler than your car.

    I remember in the early 90s, I liked driving American cars because they nickel and dimed you, and occasionally needed $100 in repairs, but the Japanese cars would give you a false sense of security and then WHAM two grand to get it back on the road. I like knowing in advance I have to make a $100 repair every two months, as opposed to unexpectedly getting my life threatened by a microchip, which is why I still drive a 90s American car.

    Yeah, and if a guy like him can get a job, the DC snowflakes have it pretty easy.

    Yeah but that predates Barry. The housing boom saw prices go up over 200% of their previous values here, probably close to 300%, and then when they tanked they went down to maybe 110 or 120% of what they were around 2000. I know people who are just now getting dug out.... but nobody I know got utterly ruined by it. Point is, Bush's war had as much or more to do with that. Of course you know me and you know I'll say gladly it's all the same fucking thing.

    Unfortunately the way this is going to translate to police training is: If you're going to shoot someone holding a cellphone, make sure he dies.

    It's not impossible. Here's a guy who lost his government job and even moved to a different country where he didn't speak the language, and managed to live comfortably another 34 years.

    I voted yes because technically I use it, but it's not under my name. I got online for the first time in 1993, and from the get-go, even back then, it never occurred to me, not once, to use my real name.

    A few months ago they started putting stuff in people's feeds that they had no business seeing. So when someone I know tenuously likes someone's post where they dump their purse on the table about her husband having stage 4 cancer, I get to see it. Facebook does shit like this regularly, and then when people get righfully pissed, they create dozens of carefully hidden privacy controls and make you go set them if you don't want complete strangers getting your life story. There is a reason why I have never been on FB. My 8yo nonverbal daughter is, and boy is she a radical.

    So I looked it up, the oral sex bit is a charge multiplier. It's illegal to have sex with minors, but it's a separate law making oral sex with minors illegal. Justice system is justice systemy.

    In the early 90s I watched my infant nephew regularly, and back then everyone said that if you ever, ever, ever let an infant sleep on his back, he was going to choke on his own vomit, guaranteed. By the time I had my own kids, they were saying that children sleeping on their backs were exponentially more likely to die from SIDS. Medicine has been going out of its way during my lifetime to be completely full of shit.

    I learned quite a lot from this article despite knowing a good bit about the distinction between calendars. What follows is not just for the Orthodox: it's a window into a world most people, including most Christians - including most Orthodox Christians, even - are pretty unaware. http://www.pravoslavie.ru/english/89363.htm The discussion surrounding the Julian calendar has come up once again, although the question being asked is not: Why does the Russian Orthodox Church live according to this calendar?—since the answer is obvious, because this is our thousand-year tradition. Rather, the question is more like this: Why haven’t we changed to the calendar that the majority of people in the country are using, which the Union of Peoples’ Commissars called on February 8, 1918 the calendar of “cultured people”? The question boils down to basically, why do we follow tradition? The answer is obvious: Because in the Orthodox Church, tradition is important.Even so, let’s look at the arguments usually presented in favor of “change” from the point of view of Church tradition, and the practical-everyday argument.The scientific question—correcting the Pascalia? Instituting the Gregorian calendar. A bas relief on the grave of Pope Gregory XIII in St. Peter's Cathedral, Rome. The scientific argument goes like this: The Gregorian calendar more accurately describes astronomical manifestations; namely, it more accurately corresponds to the tropical year—the earth’s rotational period around the sun. And in order to institutionalize the reckoning of time, the calendar was introduced, first in Europe, by Gregory XIII. This began in the Catholic world and then spread to other countries.But actually, Pope Gregory introduced the new calendar for a different reason. The main idea behind the Gregorian reform was a correction in the Paschalia. Scholars of the time, mainly Italians, found that the lapse given in the classic Julian year will in several tens of thousands of years lead to Pascha falling in autumn, and this would disrupt certain principles. A commission was created, and after fairly long discussion it came to the conclusion that a reform had to be made in precisely the Paschalia, and for the sake of the Paschalia the entire Julian year would need to be reformed. Changes were made, which shortened the year a little. The rule of determining the leap years was introduced: years divisible by four and 400 remained leap years, and those divisible by 100 remained non-leap years.And what about the Paschalia for which the calendar was changed? The entire Orthodox world follows the traditional Alexandrian Paschalia, while the Roman Catholic world never did finish its work on its own Paschalia, and essentially its reckoning of the Easter date depends upon the same Alexandrian Pascalia to which are simply joined some corrective add-ons. Moreover, only very recently, almost just last year, the Catholics of the Holy Land changed directly over to our Orthodox Paschalia, returning to the tradition they had departed from in the sixteenth century—admitting by this that the main task in creating the Gregorian calendar is recognized as not having been satisfactorily completed. All the Orthodox Churches that for practical convenience changed to the “new style” calendar in the twentieth century have also acknowledged this fact. Formally, they have changed not to the Gregorian calendar but a New Julian calendar, but for the next several centuries it will still correspond to the Gregorian calendar. However, in changing over to this new calendar these Churches still observe the Paschalia according to the old tradition, the Julian calendar, because the Alexandrian Paschalia cannot be combined with the Gregorian calendar—such is its inner mathematical apparatus, you might say. It is calculated only on the Julian calendar.Thus, the first argument falls away, because the main scientific problem motivating the creation of the Gregorian calendar—correcting the...

    People not giving up on a campaign until Romney secures 1144 is helpful. Pointing out the chances are slim, when we've all known that all along, and painting it as if it's hopeless to try is nothing but disruptive and unhelpful. Every gain we get at the convention is plenty enough reason to continue on, and as long as Dr. Paul says to fight on, we will, and then we'll move on to the next ones.... Sorry, but I'm going to call you out every time for being counterproductive to that.
