Wow, this place is still going....

So long as the world keeps providing us with stuff to talk about.

Trump gave Languish mouth-to-mouth?    :x

David Cameron did it first.
If we can hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

So. Swiss election results and the Green parties have a combined 21% of the vote.

Really seems we are seeing the world waking up amidst the nonsense.

Watching an old Family Guy episode from 2000 or 2001. Seems like Bret Kavanaugh fits right in with the Supreme Court:

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

I just learned that Felicity Huffman, the first of the defendants in the mass college admissions cheating scandal to plead out, is married to William H Macey.  How did he manage to not get involved?

Also that her sentence was 14 days in Club Fed. :mellow:

It's really easy. You get an appointment with a notary, sign some documents, and wait for them to be published in the company register. The lawyers send you a bill afterwards.

Ok ok....

It's verrrry techy. I already have 10+ employees and VCs are trying to get me to take their money.

The last year has been surreal.

I don't think I was the target of your ire last time but I haven't kept track.

I drank because I wanted to drown my sorrows, but now the damned things have learned to swim.
