Gotta say that Sully sounds like an old-fashioned self-hating homo when he talks about the rights of states to shit on their gays, or how concerned he is with popular discomfort with his homosexuality.
Also, his latest posts on media sound so narcissistic to me, but that's not really related to this post.
commented on Wondering How to Feel About the GMO Labeling Initiative?
And speaking as a Californian who thought long and hard about this issue before voting on it, I come down as follows:
GMO-labeling is anti-science and based on magical thinking about the effects of technology on human health. The threats to the environment are potentially real, but the threats to human health are not (i.e., genetic modification doesn't inherently make a soybean dangerous to eat, unless it was modified to produce toxins). A non-GMO twinkie worse for your health than a GMO salad.
However, it's hard to argue against the right to know, even if people have no idea how to interpret the information, so I voted in favor.

The backlash makes me groan. Sexy girl nerds are like bisexuals: Sure they exist, but calling yourself one doesn't necessarily make it so.

Complaining about the electoral college is to Democrats what voter fraud is to Republicans--a hypothetical boogeyman that almost never influences an election, but used by partisans to undermine confidence in election outcomes.
There are plenty of real things to worry about--and the electoral college is not one of them. Any energy spent on eliminating the EC would be better spent on educating or registering voters.

Honestly, this is a huge deal. Stormwater is one of the biggest environmental problems in the US, and largely ignored by the media.
Usually, I don't go for Mudede's hyperboles, but in this case, I am glad to see someone hyping pervious pavement.

Bruce Willis was amazing in Moonrise Kingdom. I generally have no interest in his movies, but I give him a lot of credit for that movie.

Dan, your answer to SCROTE makes me think you have no idea what testicles even are. You REALLY think the cremaster is the cause of his pain? Really? The cremaser is not like your biceps, and it doesn't really tug on your sack all that hard.
Assuming that Dan has momentarily forgotten what it's like to have testicles, let me share some advice for SCROTE instead: Tell your girlfriend to suck less hard. If you really want to be able to endure harder sucking, you can try to gradually acclimate yourself so your nuts are less sensitive.
