    Is there a positive case for voting for Joe Biden?

He supports the PRO Act. It is a start.

The only reason I know this meaningless bit of trivia is that I recently read an article about how he would be the first/only silent generation president.

Pew's cut off for silent generation is 1945.

Biden was born in 1942.

He and Sanders are /old/.

    My biggest problem with Biden is his age. I'm sort of sick of Boomers on the one hand,

would you feel better or worse if he was Silent Generation?

Business as usual at work. Won a bid that puts me back in the old section of the building.

Excitingly, the old section has hot water in the bathroom.

Small win I guess.

Is there a page count range you are aiming for?

I occasionally boot up my second run of Read Dead Redemption 2.

I abandoned the camp/plot right after we got out of the mountains.

Usually play a day per session, eating two square meals, taking care of my horse and doing good deeds while making sure to get plenty of sleep.

Got the strongest feeling of deja vu writing that.

    Like if you live in rural Kansas, are you going to be socially ostracized for not signing up or is it just "hey, here's an option?"

The latter.

    Chicken Soup for the Teen Soul: How to Skip Town and Start a New Life Before You Fucking Die.

One of the agenda items it is an option for.

This here is the site of the best fried cat fish I've ever had. We used to go there pretty often for dinner when I was visiting my grandparents. One of their go to restaurants.

It was a 72mile/115km round trip.

They also liked to go to the wholesale club to stock up on groceries. 270mile/434km there and back again.

I'm pretty fond of the place. But only because I didn't have to grow up there. Shit is bleak.

It's worth checking the various coupon sites if you go the crossover route. Codeweavers seem to usually have some sort of deal going on.

I've been rereading John Minford's translation of Tao Te Ching and attempted to ape the style.

Power tools amplify lack of skill

And allow poor decisions

To mingle in the dust

behind the drywall

keifermiller  ·  165 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Pubski: October 16, 2019

The neat thing about working on a room that was finished by the previous home owners is that even if you fuck up badly, everything else was so poorly done that nobody will be able to tell it was you that fucked up.

That said, I don't think the drywall we hung on the ceiling last night was too poorly done. The water turned out to be coming from a disused dryer vent that the old owners had tucked into the ceiling when finishing the basement. Naturally they left it connected to outside though. So it dumped humid outside air directly on the AC duct. Condensation city.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've seen that point of view brought up a few times in discussions where people were arguing that this isn't really QE because they are overnight loans that are 100% backed.

Don't understand it well enough to say how true it is. It feels very glass half full to me, and the two week terms would definitely pour some of that water out of the cup. Which is why is why I thought it was interesting.

I think we need an updated graph of KB's ski jump to tell.
