by 2040 nobody who believes the earth goes around the sun can win a republican primary
someone who believes the earth is round wins but it's real close and they're branded a RINO by the base
due to the emptying out of rural states, republicans still hold a senate majority
they shut down the government to demand we hunt down the witches who are causing sickness and blighting crops.
very serious news guys suggest both sides are at fault and liberals should compromise more.
reasons my daughter has woken me up in the middle of the night:
"DADDY! I got a boogers!"
"DADDY! My teeth! My TEEEETH!" (her teeth were fine but she had a bad dream about them)
"DADDY! I can't see anything!" (she had gotten stuck underneath the fitted sheet of her mattress)
"DADDY! We have to go downstairs find my little pants!"
"DADDY! Where are my EYES?" (I had to reassure her they were still in her face as usual)
"DADDY! Stop playing my 小狗游戏! You can't play it, it's mine!"
The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.

Re-reading parts of Cyberia http://project.cyberpunk.ru/lib/cyberia/cyberia.pdf and there are places where it's kind of obvious that some self-described "hacker" psychedelic-drug-user "visionary" is just feeding Douglas Rushkoff a line of bullshit, and he's desperate to seem "cool" and not "square" so instead of being skeptical, he breathlessly reports on it and asks for more
on my way to work this morning, a guy crossing the street next to me kept repeating under his breath:
"information equals eternal life... information equals eternal life... information equals eternal life..."
uh, cool theory, bro?
"Cyberia: Life in the Trenches of Hyperspace" Douglas Rushkoff, 1994 (not pirated: the author approved releasing full text of the book online)
A fascinating reminder what people in 1994 thought Cyberspace and the Information Superhighway would be like. Almost an alien mindset now
In retrospect, it's absolutely tragic. Not just that the internet turned out so much worse than we thought it was going to be; but that our ambitions have shrunk so much.

why doesn't trump just declare that the wall is already built?
- his base will believe anything he says
-he can claim it's done ahead of time and under budget
-government can re-open
- we'll be exactly as safe from the imaginary mexican invasion as we would be with a wall
- fox news can brag about how great the wall is and how much the libs were owned
- the rest of us don't have to pay billions of dollars for a useless, symbolic security blanket for racist cowards

i think "safe spaces" are extremely misunderstood. there's no universal/generic "safe space", but a variety of spaces where we choose not to have one kind of conversation in order to focus on a different kind of conversation. And we need lots of different spaces for lots of different people.
One of my favorite bloggers wrote a really good post digging into this and says it better than I could: https://theunitofcaring.tumblr.com/post/100561778176/safe-spaces-and-competing-access-needs
@Elmkast I've done a bunch of R. it was a couple years ago. Want some help? Feel free to hit me up with questions.
R is such a different programming paradigm from most languages (it's all based on avoiding loops and instead writing operations that affect multiple data points in parallel) that it's almost better to go into it without much other programming experience. Less to un-learn that way.
If this is true, maybe pair programming is just getting the underlying disagreements out in the open sooner, before they fester into something that will break the project.
continuing @ykgoon's marriage analogy, sometimes it's healthier for the marriage to have the argument than to avoid it and quietly resent each other.
the only way Spider-verse would be stronger thematically is if it ended with a declaration that Sony and Marvel were renouncing copyright to Spider-Man and he's now a public domain character.
