    2020 U.S. Presidential elections

    I suspect the days of only being able to supply a fake email are over. You will have to provide name & address, and maybe a phone number too. You'll need to use a throwaway name & address, and the address will need to be a real one because the USPS sells address validation services. If you...

    Linden Research just sold itself to an investment firm

    I'm cautiously optimistic, if they actually have a record of buy-and-hold that fits one of the standard investment portfolio packages - the low-risk kind that goes for wealth preservation and "parking" of temporary capital with utilities, government bonds and so forth. Even if Tilia doesn't pan...

    Additionally, the Supreme Court has just ruled that "faithless electors" can be punished, so that makes it even more unlikely. Those delegates are already bound to Trump or Biden.

    Linden Research just sold itself to an investment firm

    If it includes A/S/L then we'd also know Trump was a secret backer.

    Coronavirus Updates

    Whether one gets sick does seem to depend on your viral load. A lot off healthy doctors died so there appears to be a quantity component to this disease - a zerg rush so to say.

    Linden Research just sold itself to an investment firm

    I wouldn't mind making a Tilia microtransaction to read an odd NYT article and could easily imagine it being a vital revenue stream for all news media. Reporters gotta eat after all, and making mainstream media stronger helps just about all of us.

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    Well, looks like I won't have to worry about having something to read when I have my bath tonight. *sighs*

    Confederate flag/statue banning thread

    One or two have been moved to graveyards, but almost all of them are still in storage. Museums don't want them - upkeep cost and it's hard to frame them in an appropriate manner when they're the 800 pound elephant [intentionally] in the room. The storage locations are hidden, for obvious...

    Why should I mention an accident of genetics? It doesn't make me smarter or wiser, and the only affect my genetics has had is to make me well adapted to winter and totally miserable in the summer. And yes, affect is the correct word ;P

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    Trump is probably awed by Putin's superior ability to mentally I'm a late boomer/early gen X'er. My birth father trained on Shermans and stood a strong chance of being killed if the war had went on just a little while longer. My step father served in the Aleutian Islands, the Herzberg forest...

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    Are you sure? I mean, the Russians conducted an aweful lot of ESP experiments in the 60's and 70's, and Putin looks rather ... shall we say, hypnotic. The way he looks at people, it's like he's pricing cuts of meat.
