@9- Transliterations are often terrible. The whole freaking Wade-Giles system for Chinese where they decided to use a "t" for the "d" sound (among other fuckery) is a great example. And Welsh transliterations, just shoving extra "L" in for the fuck of it.

@25- Your shtick is really wearing thin.
I'm pretty sure in any state of the Union you are responsible for not opening your door into traffic. I doored a truck once (which ripped the door out of my hand, which was exciting) and found out that in Boston the one opening the door into traffic is 100% responsible for what hits it.

@3- I think the point of the Rolling Jubilee is supposed to be a demonstration of how fucked up the system is. If the market value of the debt is 3% of the face value, why are we forcing the impoverished to pay the face value? But the charitable aspect is overshadowing the activism aspect. Charity doesn't fix any problems, it just mitigates symptoms.
