I am probably working on Hubski.

Send me a PM or post with the tag #bugski if you think something is broken.

I am ignoring #thebeatles.

I do not agree with everything that I post. I hope you don't either.

I don't know enough about leukemia to say with certainty. I suspect that if they are in remission or 'cured', then the cells would be useful. I also imagine that certain gene-editing or even cell-selection technologies could be applied to the cells ex vivo, so if there is a genetic component that can be corrected for, they might be useful in that way.

I've wondered if there are any studies that are harvesting the stem cells of patients with blood cancers, selecting out the non-cancerous ones, and expanding those cells for an autologous transplant after chemo-ablation of their cancerous ones. I'll have to look into it.

    Serious question and no intent to nit-pick: is it the case of some subtle English thing about contexts, or did you mean to write 'cognitive deficits alleviation/reversal' but missed it?

Thanks, I did. Fixed.

I'll be forgotten, and I don't much care how long it takes.

I recently read the Meditations, and about 50% of it is Aurelius reminding himself that he will be forgotten, and that postmortem remembrance is a pretty stupid thing to waste the present on.

    History is change and change is almost always cataclysmic for someone.

He pretty much says that too.

Two awesome, hairy guys!

That's a rare sticker, my friend.

Welcome LTL!

Yes. And yet, most of the legislation that gets passed between elections doesn't pertain to the hot button issues that divide the electorate. We don't need leaders and champions. We need people that will govern well.

They share a good deal of blame on this one.

mk  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: If Liberals Voted

Uneducated citizens might not have the opportunity to understand how important voting is, but for those that have education, the blame is theirs. Many millennials qualify.

We've suffer from the expectation that a candidate must inspire, or be idealogically fit.

The more a populous sincerely engages government, the more the government will reflect their needs and disposition.

Putting a requisite upon engagement itself is self-defeating. Your apathy is the ally of those opposed to your worldview.

I still listen to your album. It's about time you start getting the press it deserves.

You know I'm in.

We had Burke's video game for the Mac in a house with seven roommates. "You've made a connection!" was a way we made fun of each other's insights.

Ok I am being unfair. Much of it stems from your cops pulling us Michiganders over for sport.

I have been to Columbus, and it's a nice mid-sized city. Any equivalency to the Old World is going too far, but I could make due in Columbus. I have no doubt that Ohio beer is delicious. However, it is odd that little of it makes it's way north.

You all do have a electorate that's even more frustrating than ours.

Does he really though? To what extent has he turned the mirror on Instagram users, and to what extent has he found a way to game a common affection for short bad poetry?

Here is a minor rant: IMHO the act of "doing X to show us how we relate to Y" is stale artistic strategy, and often a lazy excuse.

It is difficult to to be sincere and to have conviction. It is a obstacle that we see anonymity as a risk. It is an obstacle that the speed of distribution and consumption contaminates the process. It's an obstacle that we have push notifications.

Instagram cannot glorify poetry that isn't pop poetry.

EDIT: I just navigated away to my inbox where I saw an invitation from LinkedIn to congratulate a casual acquaintance on a work anniversary.
