Jan 6 spaceapple commented on It's Official: Trump Voters Were Duped by Putin.
Here's what I don't get about these allegations-- both candidates (in any election) wield tremendous resources in an effort to disparage their opponent and sway voters, often by lying. Even if Putin tried to help Trump, short of hacking the voting machines themselves, I don't see how Russian-peddled bullshit would sway voters more than GOP-peddled bullshit already does.

As someone with two kids, both unplanned, I think LW is a fool.
Nov 21, 2016 spaceapple commented on Hillary Clinton Is Everything We Have Been Taught Women Should Not Be.
sick of people blaming Hilary's loss on misogyny. 53 percent of white women voted for Trump. If that fact hasn't destroyed your argument already, you really are just talking to yourself.

I was lived in Perugia years ago and studied Italian there. I was friends with Lumumba, and I agree wholeheartedly with everything @3 said.
Sep 26, 2016 spaceapple commented on Straining to Care About Strains.
I've noticed that, with the rise of all these colorfully-named strains, there has been a proportional decline in slang words for the herb itself.

I hate the word "cannabis," as it seems like the most sterile, inoffensive way to market the plant to nervous conservatives. It's the equivalent of using words like "penis" or "intercourse"- not sexy.

Gimme some ganja, some buddha, herb, gear, or good shit. Let me know if it's indica, sativa, or hybrid. Post the percentages of various cannabinoids, and no one will care what it's called.

In fact, I just learned that potency can vary quite a bit, even between plants that are the same strain, so the names truly are meaningless.
Sep 18, 2016 spaceapple commented on Hate Read This Seattle Times Story About the Struggle of Two Upper Middle Class People in the Suburbs.
The point of the Seattle Times article is this: "Here's a portrait of someone our advertisers would like to sell to. Do they sound like you? Then maybe YOU could benefit from some financial planning!"

I'm really enjoying this series of posts, Charles! I'm normally not even a fan of yours, but it's funny how all these comments seem to focus on the problem in terms of local supply and demand, exactly missing your point.

If you are put off by weed, don't partner with a stoner. End.

Finally, we can live in a country where a WOMAN bombs the shit out innocents in the Middle East and takes bribes from Wall Street. I'll hold onto this joyful feeling as long as I can.

I had a cyclist co-worker, great guy, but he did frequently tell stories of confrontation with drivers, and seemed to enjoy telling those stories.
