Sep 2 Purocuyu commented on Another Plane Forced to Land After a Fight Breaks Out Over Reclining Seats.
The problem is not the person who reclines. They paid for that. The problem is the tall person who doesn't want to pay for the legroom they want. They prefer the person in from to get less for what they paid. It is a monetary exchange through force. It is only "uncourteous" if the person behind bought too-small a seat, and expects the person in front to subsidize the space.
Nope.

The best idea I've heard so far is the app five-0, which slog put up recently. Yelp can hurt a business, and it can help too. If we don't rely on the cops to keep tabs on themselves, but do it ourselves, in a way that is out of their control, just that knowledge can affect change.
Rate your experience with cops.
Mar 2 Purocuyu commented on Russia Is Invading Ukraine and Nobody Seems Able or Willing to Do Anything About It.
This is what the U.S. looks like to the rest of the world whenever we do one of our little military adventures. In Geopolitics, might makes right, it's just as simple as that. I don't like it, but the stronger countries can make laws to justify anything they want.
What if Russia said, " we had our top lawyers check to make sure this was legal, and they said it was, so that is the end of that".
America, meet mirror.
Feb 23 Purocuyu commented on Slog Bible Study: Luke 12:48.
This is one of those that is only a metaphor, or only refers to its specific time period, or the true meaning has been lost to history, or it is so symbolic in fact that for somebody to try to make it sound like this says anything about the poor or the rich or taking care of the poor, is simply blasphemy--BLASPHEMY I SAY!

Congress includes some seriously dour people.

Dear Slog: If guys don't hire Fnarf, somebody else is going to, and then what are we going to? All in favor say "aye"

How about a Slog commenter tag for 25 bucks (which is fine and dandy, for you 25 dollar-having-folks), and maybe a bargain tag? There's got to be other slog-tag-whores aside from me, who would do it for 10 bucks, no? you could even call us Slog Tag Whores if it makes you feel better...what say you, Slog?

My last house was 480 square feet, and I did it for $11,000. Of course, I built the thing myself (as I pat myself on the back).

I know it might not be for most people, but can we get a version with him speaking spanish? I'm sure I'm not the only person who is okay with the questions in English and the answers in Spanish. maybe as a link?

At least neither one brought a knife to a gunfight. Gun owners tell me never to do that.
