commented on SL Letter of the Day: That Dick Has Sailed
I'm with Theory Two. If you're sitting there focusing on taking instructions and performing a difficult job like working the female arousal cycle, that kind of overshadows the mental mechanism that drives erection. Also, inflating a dick takes a lot of hydraulic effort, and after a while the muscles clamping it down just need a break. If she's the kind of girl who wants to shape the experience she gets and set the guy to specific tasks which distract him from his own arousal, she's going to need to ramp him back up after she's done.
commented on Should America's Olympic Athletes Wave Gay Pride Flags in Russia?
Olympic flag waving in 1936 was not a deliberate act of civil disobedience, specifically contrary to the law in the host country. It's a false equivalence. Olympic athletes should seek assurances from the State Department that they will be protected by the full might and influence of the US government while at the Olympics, then wave their flags as desired. If they can not secure these assurances there should be a full boycott of the games.

Is this surprising to anyone, for a second? The death penalty is about as anti-libertarian as you can get, as it assumes that the government can't make mistakes.
commented on PGP: "Wise in theory but obnoxious in practice."
You don't get to use PGP for this. PGP stands for "Pretty Good Privacy" and is the name of the standard user-level encryption program and protocol.
And yes, it is wise in theory to PGP your emails, but obnoxious in practice because it destroys your ability to search and ties you to a client with a plugin.
