Modern Liberals: It’s not cool to date someone significantly younger than you. Or olderOr the same ageDating’s not cool — Randall Otis (@RandallOtisTV) May 30, 2019 If your partner is not algorithmically chosen, and precisely matched to you in every approved way, it’s morally wrong! Loving what “liberalism” has become. (Yes, I know the tweet… Read More »
It probably won’t be long (if it hasn’t already happened) that not eating trash fake meat “food” is also equated by capitalists with racism, since global climate change will harm mostly non-white people more than others in general. As capitalism by its very nature co-opts and subverts anything it can for greater profits, it’s a… Read More »
One huge advantage of banning cars from cities in favor of mass transit is that it’d keep people like me mostly out of your cities. In general, this would be a win for everyone. I am a grumpy, ornery bastard and no one wants me in their city.
I have discovered there are some people who cannot think in metaphors and it makes explaining things to them very difficult. — Emanuel Derman (@EmanuelDerman) May 29, 2019 Many STEM folks have this problem. They also tend not to understand satire at all and have problems with comprehending humor in general. We do not usually… Read More »
I will never use wireless earbuds or headphones for a phone or anywhere else. That’s just absurd. Have you heard the audio quality of those things? It’s like listening to a drunk fish ululate into a metal garbage can in the bottom of the ocean. Yes, even the “good” ones. And I don’t even care… Read More »

I’ve heard every variant of both my first and last name imaginable and some that aren’t. And this cacology is… Read More »

Today the figures are 0.23 percent and 0.37 percent. Notice that his graph and data actually refers to the federal… Read More »

The only feature I care about on a phone is that it has Google Maps or a similar program. It’s the only app I use and the only one I will likely ever use on a phone. The rest are worthless garbage that work far better on anything with a larger screen. If someone would… Read More »
When liberals hear “socially constructed” I think they hear “changeable on a whim” and “reasonlessly capricious” whereas I understand how the entire weight of history and inculcation obstructs their easily-imagined alterations and rearrangements of a cultural imperative. Relatedly, when liberals hear “genetic” I think they imagine that anyone who says that means “eugenics, exterminate all… Read More »
