Jun 13, 2015 AndyInChicago commented on Hillary Clinton Campaign Kickoff Speech.
I liked how she talked about TPP at length, especially since so many people are asking her to comment. She knew the left really wanted her to comment on it to show that she supported American workers, especially since she was trying to channel FDR.

Oh wait....

I know where that is! I live less than a mile from there. Great beach. And this summer, when I visited a friend in Seattle, it was cold and rainy here, and sunny and hot there. I like fall weather, but this year has been fucked.

I always root for the Canadian team when it comes to hockey. The best players on the Blackhawks are Canadians; why not give the prize to a team in that actual country? That said, I'm going to have to sit out actual cheering if it comes down to Candiens vs. Blackhawks as to not be attacked in bars here in Chicago.

Fuck this shit. Chicago isn't even ranked? I like a lot of these cities and all, but this is some bullshit.

Contact a graduate student in Biology at your local university. They'll have access to a PCR and you can have this taken care of in a day. Too bad you're not in Chicago, or I'd give you my e-mail.

Poor, poor Jimmy Carter. It's weird that he read and believed the Bible, which is at odds with the Religious Right that ended up backing Reagan and kicking him out.

A) Chris Hadfield is already back on earth. B) Why would you do that to Chris Hadfield? He's super cool! C) Maybe if everyone stopped paying attention to Bieber, he'd just go away.
Jun 6, 2013 AndyInChicago commented on What Comes After the Fact that All Humans Are Africans?.
Evolutionary biology has tons of questions like this, but I think on a personal level, you can't say the blanket statement that we are all African without being slightly disingenuous. The oldest humans were found in Africa, yes. But the oldest mammal was found in China, so by that logic, we're all Chinese. If you go back far enough, the oldest fossil of a eukaryotic cell was found in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Why Michigan? I have the feeling because of the beauty of the place (I'm from Michigan in more ways than just eukaryotic lineage), but that's likely not the correct answer. We are all African, yes, but we're also all Chinese, and we're all Midwesterners.
