"Ohio really did go to President Obama last night, he really did win. He really was born in Hawaii, and he really is, legitimately, president of the United States again. And The Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not skewed to oversample Democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad. Nate Silver was doing math.

And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes. And evolution is a thing! And Benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal by us. And nobody is taking away anyone's guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And UN election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as communism."

Every progressive should just keep this on a laminated notecard to read in arguments with right-wingnuts.

My iPod bricked a couple months back, and I was utterly non-plussed. I was like, "meh, guess I have to buy a new adapter so I can play Spotify off my phone in the car." Two years ago, I would have felt like a substantial portion of my life had been shattered, and I would already have dropped $150+ on a new iPod. Now, I'm not even gonna bother replacing it.

Yeah, there's a venerable tradition of casting the Irish as just that.

The bigger issue is how the sharp edges of that centered background image don't drive you insane. I twitched just looking at that picture for a few seconds.

Desktop is for temporary storage ... at the end of the day, everything gets filed into the proper Dropbox folder. Also, Dropbox is my god, and I sacrifice a goat to it weekly.
