You wouldn't ask me to help implement government policy on anything else so why this one thing ?

And what is the 'it' you want to 'get done' ?. Hammond is trying to get some damage limitation 'done'. Johnson is trying to get some vacuous-speechifying-so-he-can-be-prime-minister 'done' and May is trying to get some serious muddling-through-and-making-it-up-as-she-goes-along 'done' until someone puts her out of her misery. McDonnel is getting some Waiting-in-the-wings-until-the-public-give-him-a-chance-to-implement-hard-line-Stalinism 'done'.

Which of these projects are you telling me I'm obliged to support, again ?

By the way, I never took sides on this. I had no love for the EU, was fifty-fifty really and plumped for voting safety as I didn't want to lose my job in a recession. When the vote came through I wasn't too concerned, naively thinking the politicians had bothered to make some sort of plan for each of the outcomes of the referendum which they, themselves, had decided to call. So yes, I feel like a right chump now, but at least I don't have any responsibility for this debacle.
"Complete Brexit", in the sense of the UK being treated by the EU like Brazil or the United States or Japan, was never a realistic perspective, the UK would have lost too much if they just packed up and left, not to mention that there's the issue of Ireland and Northern Ireland. I always expected Brexit to be essentially the UK moving from being part of the EU to some kind of set of deals similar to those made with Norway, basically EFTA/EEA (minus Schengen, since the UK was never part of the Schengen area anyway).

I think that's what will happen anyway, with much gnashing of teeth over it from both the EU and the UK establishment and a lot of hand-waving on both sides to make the world think that their side "won", when in reality neither side will get exactly what they want.

I have no idea if most Brexit supporters are fine with the change from being a part of the EU to being a country strongly associated, but not within the EU. I don't think most supporters of the Remain camp will be happy with this, either. But such is the nature of political compromises.

In the long run it'd have probably been better for the UK to stay within the EU if they tried to find allies among other EU countries to counterbalance the strong French and German influence. As of right now leaving the EU means that France and Germany will have a stronger grip over the EU institutions, which is something that the UK might regret, and goes against the classic British geopolitics of not letting a single power be the dominant authority over Continental Europe.

But who knows, maybe the UK will be able to defend its interests even outside the EU, even (hypothetically) when facing with a stronger and potentially commercially and economically unfriendly Union led by Macron or Merkel.

All in all the EU is heavily flawed, plagued by a lack of democratic representation and of accountability of its institutions, vulnerability to special interests and lack of understanding of economic and social differences between members. The unilateral influence of France and Germany over the Union still hasn't found a viable counterbalance among other EU members. Also the tensions between Western and Eastern European over immigration aren't likely to be resolved neatly.

Still, the Brexit process was quite clearly poorly thought out, with no clear strategy or even a clear endgame, and so it's been a big mess so far. I don't think that the UK or the EU will gain a lot from it, and even less so the more they keep bickering over exactly how it's going to happen.

Eventually the EU could come out of its impasse through a new generation of leaders, maybe led by Macron but with a better and larger representation of Eastern and Southern European interests. The UK could also recover once the negotiations are done, but they'd vulnerable to a better organized and more focused and pragmatic EU.

I'm still mixed on Brexit.

People are free to disagree but IMO the primary problem with the EU isn't something that really affected the UK at all, and it's lack of a sovereign currency. This is a problem compounded by the EU's infatuation with austerity, which is the economic equivalent of bleeding with leeches to cure bad humors. But the worst thing about the EU is the fucking Euro.

I dunno. The rules about deporting Romanian bail jumpers are kinda shit. We legit can't even send people back to Romania who breached their bail conditions by coming here, on account of jail cells in Romania being against their yooman rights. Meanwhile, Romanian courts are giving people permission to visit Britain while on bail (which is itself highly fucking unusual, no?). Well played Romania, well played.
But of course, I'm a thick as pigshit racist Brexiter, so my only reason to object to such obvious cuntiness is muh xenuphoebes.

And that's the ECJ, not the ECHR. Also from the ECJ, we can't deport a foreign criminal if they are the sole carer for a "UK resident child". ie, crims can bring their kids and enroll them in school and from then on are unassailable. This is fucked.

BTW - I am about as far from Florida as possible within the Eastern time zone. I am at the Ramada in Marquette Michigan. I am tending to my daughter who just got out of the psych hospital. She is doing pretty well all things considered. We are going to watch the dog sled race on Friday! I have no weapons with me.

I also think it is unwise to jump to conclusions about the Florida shooter. Remember that everyone thought the columbine shooters were bullied as well.
Good luck John. (Was just kidding about you going to Fla. :P )

PZ talks about the school shooting:
http://archive.is/Qd2bL
The Florida mass-murderer had a lot of problems: he was a “loner” (uh-oh, so was I!), and other kids thought he was “weird” (damn, that’s me again),
Threatening people” is one of those things that has been treated as perfectly fine on the internet — it’s just free speech, man, you know you can’t say anything against free speech.
Right on PZ! Let's go and punch those asshole free speech absolutists!

I hope no one prayed for the shot kids while they were bleeding. If they did, they should have been shanked themselves..

Shared currency?

What was wrong with that? Sure there is the issue of inflation and who profits from the addition production of currency. But that is any different from any other currency.

That's disingenuous. I've never seen anyone defend threats as free speech. Of course to SJW's "You Suck!" is threatening speech.

Spoilers: Blade Runner 2049


...

Well I committed last night while in a happy state. I may have snoozed just a little. But beautiful moody scenes aside was that an actual plot here let alone one that could support what felt like a 16 hour movie.

From what I can see:

Replicant hunted down by dude and a body is found buried
Body is a replicant that had a child. OMG.
Dude is sent to clean this up
Somehow (snooze could have kicked in here) he ends up with Harrison Ford who is the dad.
Baddies also want Ford and Daughter
Baddies get Ford
Goodies get him back
Ford sees his daughter
Dude falls asleep in snow
Credits.

Did I miss anything important? At one stage, through a sleepy haze, I could have sworn I saw boobies attached to a hundred foot woman. But I was probably dreaming.

My older brother had a melanoma removed in the latter 70's and is still with us. Our father was not so lucky 20 years later. Brother did like to suntan as a teen. Dad liked to build cabin frames at his ~9000-foot-elevation properties often shirtless. I try to stay pasty white. I wish they'd cut off more of Dad, you know. Looks good to me.

I admit I don't follow InfoWars a lot, mostly because they're a bunch of lunatics and idiots. I knew of Alex Jones from his contributions to the Truther and Birther conspiracy theories, and of course from the gay frog meme, but I haven't watched an Alex Jones video from beginning to end (life is too short, I have better things to do).

Still, not only they're loons and morons, they're also utter dicks, and have potentially exposed themselves to a lawsuit (I think that one of the guys who was falsely identified as the Boston Marathon shooting won a lawsuit for defamation).

Say what you want about the problems in US "mainstream" media (and there are many), but at least they don't get their sources from 4chan.

InfoWars is like a spam ad for a product supposed to cure erectile dysfunction: it's obviously a lie, and it's about massive dicks.

If PJW was a bloke in a pub I’d keep the rounds coming just for the fun of it.

The problem kicks in if you foolishly elevate these people to social analysts and seekers of truth. It’s a ranty OP with pearls of commonsense, devoid of big brained nuance and often contextualised with bullshit.

It’s equally foolish to treat MSM as dispassionate educators.

I can get that for free at the bar, and sometimes even from people who are more pleasant to hang around with.

caveat emptor
Everybody has a bias, and it's a good idea to be skeptical. Some outlets, like Al-Jazeera, are at least 50% bullshit, but are called "mainstream" because of oil money. And even legitimate "mainstream" media CAN and HAVE fucked up royally.

Sabrina Erdely's "A Rape on Campus" was as fake as an InfoWars conspiracy theory, she should have been tarred and feathered for that. The coverage of GamerGate has been beyond terrible pretty much everywhere. The Guardian has SocJus op-eds that wouldn't look out of place on the Orbit or Pharyngula. The Independent has a Ahmadi imam praising islam as an antidote to rape and sexual assault ( :lol: ).

Anita Sarkeesian is a former telemarketer turned internet scammer who has managed to convince many that she's a poor little victim who deserves to be taken seriously by the UN. Zoe Quinn is a possibly sociopathic schemer who has screwed over anyone she's ever worked with, but she's portrayed as a saintly woman who is the prey of the Man-Beasts of the Internet. Brianna Wu..well, what more can be said? Etc.

Even the best journalistic networks, like Reuters or Associated Press, sometimes show their biases.

Still most of the time there's nothing as blatantly stupid as what happens in the "alternative" media. If I read "mainstream" news I wonder what's their angle, and how they spun a possibly, even likely real piece of news in their favor. 9 times out of 10 the "news" you get on "alternative" media are completely insane bullshit.

That's pretty much in, and yes, there were boobies attached to a hundred foot woman.

I enjoyed it, but it was definitely a sequel, not something terribly original. It would make for a good middle movie in a trilogy, the problem being the third movie is identical to:

+ Rise of the Planet of the Apes
+ Westworld (2017)
+ I Robot
+ Spartacus

I thought it did a very good job, but not a great job, of recreating Blade Runner 1982's atmosphere. But it absolutely needed more Vangelis, the soundtrack to 2049 evoked 1982, but came nowhere close at all. I also thought there was a plot hole big enough to drive the Millenium Falcon through.

Re: the scenery, the Netflix Altered Carbon has some images in it that absolutely could be from the Blade Runner universe. I'm only 3/4s way through the first episode, but that series itself either has some massive explaining to do, or has some huge plot holes. Or will end up just making no sense.

I would have guessed that galactorrhea meant 'the space scours'.

But the worst thing about the EU is the fucking Euro.
Shared currency?

What was wrong with that? Sure there is the issue of inflation and who profits from the addition production of currency. But that is any different from any other currency.
Because the currency's value is set by an outside body, an ailing country in the midst of a deep recession/depression can't devaluate to let off some of the pressure. This fucked Greece over big time.

The problem kicks in if you foolishly elevate these people to social analysts and seekers of truth. It’s a ranty OP with pearls of commonsense, devoid of big brained nuance and often contextualised with bullshit.
I can get that for free at the bar, and sometimes even from people who are more pleasant to hang around with.
It’s equally foolish to treat MSM as dispassionate educators.

caveat emptor
Everybody has a bias, and it's a good idea to be skeptical. Some outlets, like Al-Jazeera, are at least 50% bullshit, but are called "mainstream" because of oil money. And even legitimate "mainstream" media CAN and HAVE fucked up royally.

Sabrina Erdely's "A Rape on Campus" was as fake as an InfoWars conspiracy theory, she should have been tarred and feathered for that. The coverage of GamerGate has been beyond terrible pretty much everywhere. The Guardian has SocJus op-eds that wouldn't look out of place on the Orbit or Pharyngula. The Independent has a Ahmadi imam praising islam as an antidote to rape and sexual assault ( :lol: ).

Anita Sarkeesian is a former telemarketer turned internet scammer who has managed to convince many that she's a poor little victim who deserves to be taken seriously by the UN. Zoe Quinn is a possibly sociopathic schemer who has screwed over anyone she's ever worked with, but she's portrayed as a saintly woman who is the prey of the Man-Beasts of the Internet. Brianna Wu..well, what more can be said? Etc.

Even the best journalistic networks, like Reuters or Associated Press, sometimes show their biases.

Still most of the time there's nothing as blatantly stupid as what happens in the "alternative" media. If I read "mainstream" news I wonder what's their angle, and how they spun a possibly, even likely real piece of news in their favor. 9 times out of 10 the "news" you get on "alternative" media are completely insane bullshit.
I also don't really get this tendency to hold alternative media to such an absurdly low standard.

I can kind of get holding them to a slightly lower standard, or rather holding the mainstream to the highest standard and giving them major shit when they fuck up. But when alternative media routinely and regularly pull shit that's the equivalent of the MSM's absolute low points and biggest scandals, then they're not simply a humorous distraction. They're fucking Werleman level trash.

Pretty much if a kid is torturing and killing animals, the only thing to do is to wait until you and he are alone, then hold his head in a water trough until he stops kicking.

...

Well I committed last night while in a happy state. I may have snoozed just a little. But beautiful moody scenes aside was that an actual plot here let alone one that could support what felt like a 16 hour movie.

From what I can see:

Replicant hunted down by dude and a body is found buried
Body is a replicant that had a child. OMG.
Dude is sent to clean this up
Somehow (snooze could have kicked in here) he ends up with Harrison Ford who is the dad.
Baddies also want Ford and Daughter
Baddies get Ford
Goodies get him back
Ford sees his daughter
Dude falls asleep in snow
Credits.

Did I miss anything important? At one stage, through a sleepy haze, I could have sworn I saw boobies attached to a hundred foot woman. But I was probably dreaming.
I really liked, though I thought all of the Jared Leto scenes could be deleted and it wouldn't effect the story.

I’ve never watched Alex Jones. But I don’t really see PJW as “media”. In fact AltMedia is really just animated, sometimes humorous, talking blog posts and forum discussions. Southern, Goldy, Watson, Red Ice, the godamn “Golden One” (hee hee hee).

They present view points and opinion which run the range from politically incorrect and intentionally challenging to full on nutter. At best they give you something to ponder and potentially factor into your own worldview either an addition or a better clarified rejection. At worse they suck air from your lungs.

From a trad-culture perspective I’ve not seen much from PJW that I fundamentally reject, though much of his detail is questionable.

It is great news for transgender women that, if you get your partner pregnant and she doesn't want to breastfeed, the doctors will help you produce milk.
Great, so for maybe a $100,000 we can get Zinnia squirting milk from her big bouncy beauties.

Might have to take the money from sick kids or cancer patients, but sorry, they don't have near the intesectionality points.

Re: the scenery, the Netflix Altered Carbon has some images in it that absolutely could be from the Blade Runner universe. I'm only 3/4s way through the first episode, but that series itself either has some massive explaining to do, or has some huge plot holes. Or will end up just making no sense.
Aye to the scenery. I just finished watching the first episode of the series and so far so good. But I have an advantage in that I have read the books in the series twice over the years so I have a good idea of what is going on.

You would too if you had read the books Altered Carbon, Broken Angels and Woken Furies

We will see if it is as good as The Expanse and while I have not finished watching that series, I have read the books in that series. I might read them again. Actually I probably will.

One caveat though ... as a teenager I read Hawaii by Mitchner five times and War and Peace twice so you might want to consider that while weighing my recommendations.

The Honey Badger trial was in November and for a while it looked like there might be a settlement, but over a two word tweet "we won" done by a badger employee (I think) but not authorized by Alison Tieman, that was scuttled and the badgers were threatened with a new suit.

I'm not sure how the November trial ended, but the badgers posted various updates "Judge sets new trial date in our lawsuit against the Calgary Expo and the Mary Sue;".
