For Pete's sake, maybe people aren't getting licenses because they're using other options. It's not like younger people enjoy living in cities where there's public transportation or something. This article is a desert for critical thinking.

That one in the red rectangular pot? I had that.

Never bought a Humble Bundle before, but bought this one. ACLU gets money, I get to play Super Meat Boy. Everybody wins.

Yep, like the Wiki says I've heard it's more of a "we will outlast you" type sentiment. I've also heard it as "We will crush you". Amazing that we can have the same problems with a guy who speaks our own language (supposedly).

You forgot "(C) A and B".

Interesting. By contrast, some of the more pinko organizations that send me mail are constantly exhorting to sign petitions and take action, same way it was before the election. Now they're just more shrill about it.

I love how these questions are basically statements they want you to believe with a "Do you believe that" tacked on. My favorite:

    Do you believe that if Republicans were obstructing Obama like Democrats are doing to President Trump, the mainstream media would attack Republicans?

Great example of the hypocrisy event horizon.

P.S. Your intestinal fortitude must be amazing to continue enduring this Port-a-John effluent in your inbox.

This is interesting. If something is interpreted incorrectly, it could lead to a diplomatic incident.

He speaks very much in a stream of thought. I think what he says probably makes chronological and logical sense in his head, but it's nonsense for the rest of us. I think he said "I'm not ranting and raving" three or four times.

A lot of headlines are gonna come out of this thing, but I think it was actually pretty unproductive. This was all about Trump and an airing of grievances. Most of the aforementioned headlines are going to be about something Trump said and not policy action, and that's the problem here.

Another interesting dynamic I noticed is that the press, at least in some cases, is getting more hostile. Trump got directly challenged on his "biggest victory since Regan" statement, and a reporter from the BBC sarcastically responded to Trump's "there's another beauty" quip by saying, "that's a nice line - impartial, free, and fair." I wonder how this will continue to evolve.

But that album is great though.

Yup, I've got a guy in mind. Repairs old electronics for a living and sells refurbs. I'll probably get one off of him, because I already know the part I need to fix mine doesn't exist. Just gotta find the time to make the trip out there.

That's pretty sweet. I'd suggest checking the capacitors inside quickly to ID any problem ones, and consider taking it to your local audio repair shop (if you know of such a place) to get the necessaries replaced and everything tuned up. My equipment isn't that old, but some of it's pushing 40 and electronics definitely get fussy with age and need some maintenance.
