Ah man. We're going to be ships in the night, I'm afraid. I'm with a pretty sizeable group, and I don't have my own wheels up here. We'll disembark early Tuesday morning, and trying to meet up on Monday is probably nothing short of impossible.

I'll make it up to your usual neck of the woods someday, no worries.

Are you predicting extinction of the human race or something?

I'm in Crossville (lol), TN. Beautiful country.

I've seen you talk about the Strauss-Lowe framework elsewhere recently. I dunno if I would take an absolutist stance on it one way or another, but I have independently concluded that there is something very powerful about "living" knowledge. I definitely agree that as the vets pass away, a society is more likely to get back on the war path. 'bout that time, now.

I don't expect a full-out race war, though. Surely, the split in the U.S. is nowhere near 50/50 pro/anti white supremacy.

If somebody like Roger Stone is increasingly influencing Trump as others bow out, this could end more poorly than I'd thought it would.

Hopefully Kelly can keep things in check. I'd love to pretend that I don't really care, or actively want things to violently implode, but there are people's lives on the line, in many ways.

    There is nothing that will embarrass this man.

I think we're going to be probing that territory more and more :D

Devac throwin' down in Latin makes me feel insequir :/

When I non-sequit here it feels like a criminal violation, and all off-topic talk should be relegated to pubski. Sometimes I even feel remorse for bumping a post such as this one with irrelevant comment chains, just like I'm doing this very instant. But not badly enough to forego pushing "contribute"...

Then, maybe several minutes to an hour or two later, I'll sometimes add an edit with slight signs of remorse.

The idea of an inescapable interface is scary. Some say that's all life is already, but I dunno. At least life's pretty streamlined.

By "good job", I guess I meant "the only source of weather I ever consult", and I use it multiple times each day.

Saying "a 30% chance of rain on X-day" is woefully lacking compared to the hourly breakdown that wunderground provides. They do great with large-scale weather systems, but when a stationary front is overhead, I like to test my own guesses against their models. Under some conditions, I can really clean up.

tl;dr - yes, fuck accuweather and weather.com

Step one to looking like a dumbass: Failing to even offhandedly define where you're drawing your line in the sand for the birth years constituting millienial vs. Gen X, etc. before making sweeping numerical comparisons.

Step two: Considering yourself a member of the only generation not 100% detrimental to society.

    It’s not those who stormed the beaches and won the war, nor the hula-hooped millions who followed, nor what we have coming out of the colleges now—it’s Generation X that will be called the greatest.

There are plenty more steps, but I'm done, because I suspect that exactly no one around here needs any convincing.

edit: hahahahha, you should click on Rich Cohen's name and see his collection of previous "work"


Maybe not the same guys in charge of wunderground.com, but both groups did/do a good job.

Edit: "Maybe"
