Initially I wanted a Starship Troopers clip, but I didn't find a good one in the first couple of pages of youtube results.

If this is turning into a people you know running for Congress thread, send in the clowns.

It's as appropriate for someone on a civil rights commission to be hostile towards conservative Christianity as it is for an ER doctor to be disgusted with the NRA. The first solves problems the second creates.

Taking it as given that Trump's cabinet are going to abuse their positions to enrich themselves, that's such a bizarrely unambitious way to do it. Like getting a job running a hedge fund then setting up a three card monte table in the lobby.

Was "badthink" on a word of the week calendar or something?

Maybe I'm showing my age making this comparison, but shoplifting a card is easier than shoplifting a magazine.

From the outside, there is way to much ressentiment in Peterson's following for Nietzsche to be a good substitute. You're never going to sell those guys on Nietzschean affirmation.

Plus Angry Young Men tend to take all the wrong lessons from Nietzsche.

    A lady who works at a weed warehouse traded me 36 high power edibles, a mix of 50/50 and 100% THC. They will last me months as long as the wife doesn't get into them too hard. She is way too generous a trader. She starts insisting to pay about half way into the trade value.

I gave the local coffee shop owners' dropout daughter math lessons so she could get her GED six years ago. They still won't let me pay for my coffee no matter how much I insist. I'm an absolute shit teacher too; that girl might be the only person in the world with a GED, no degree, and an AMS membership because I couldn't answer stupid questions without teaching her about Galois theory and how to construct the real numbers. She probably could have gotten a BS in math for the amount of work she put into learning high school math from me. Bartering is fun but holy shit does it make you feel guilty when you and the people you're bartering with have very different valuation functions.

Yeah, that was weird to me too. I think it's included because JQuery has a very low barrier to entry, and has become unfashionable in favor of more complicated libraries. Which isn't a problem limited to the web; I don't think I would have bothered to learn much about graphics if I'd had to do it with modern OpenGL or Vulkan for example.

Too late for them, but on the off chance it comes up again there are almost always at least a handful of people in any CS department who pick locks for fun, and the cheapo Master combination locks on most school lockers are really easy to open.
