Compared to their predecessors (i.e actual violent, murderous people) these Capitol Hill bros. are a bunch of pussycats. Move on with your life and be happy you have such trivial problems.

Is there a GoFundMe site to help these people restore the art? That house has been brightening my days for a decade now.
commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Weeded Out
IME, people who smoke occasionally oftentimes have an exaggerated view of how much if effects people. Having a puff or two every day for awhile, and it's somewhere in the neighborhood of a cup of coffee in how much it impacts your ability to function normally.
commented on Jerry Brown Does Math, Endorses Clinton
Perhaps Bernie supporters would do better by their candidate by actually talking about his ideas and/or qualifications rather than name calling and relentlessly harping on easily debunked Clinton conspiracy theories.
commented on See How Vinyl Records Get Made, and Note How Well They're Selling
Quality digital formats are objectively superior in every way that can possibly be measured (dynamic/frequency range, noise/distortion, etc). These formats reproduce the sound waves that make up music more accurately than vinyl, and for the most part they do not degrade over time (CD rot is mostly a myth). CDs reproduce perfectly (yes, perfectly) all the content that is on the recording (however imperfect that recording might be).
The appeal to vinyl is largely psychological. It is a beautiful and physical medium. Some people enjoy the increased distortion too, but please don't confuse this with accuracy.
The best thing about this so called "vinyl resurgence" is that due to obvious limitations of the medium, it encourages young people getting into vinyl to listen at the sweet spot to an album all the way through at reference volume. Of course vinyl sounds better to many people.
