antifa but spooky 11h
The stated conservative position in Shelby v. Holder was that the Voting Rights Act was violating the sovereignty of states to make their own ballot decisions, but when states exercise sovereignty to make the ballot more accessible, they oppose that too. Weird!

I gave up, and called Best Buy to pull the plug on my delivery. I might have gotten a dryer eventually, but the whole exercise seemed so dumb.

Still kicking myself for skipping this year because of all the travel I had scheduled for February through May. And then…yeah. No travel.

I think 5–10 minutes would be good. Because, yeah, when it runs for hours, that’s terrible — I definitely get to a point where I’d way rather hurl and have it done with.

🤷🏼‍♂️ I figure it’d have to be something I ate, since I haven’t been near other people.

It’s a significant shortcoming of the human body that you’ve got 45 seconds between “huh, I’m a little nauseated” and actually hurling.

I have been to several weddings (among my Boston-area relatives) that have done this, including with teeth, and it is as excruciatingly painful to watch as you’re imagining.

This is how the Confederacy won the war: not on the battlefields, but in the textbooks. Anybody who says “history will judge them” is unaware of how history has judged actual traitors and rebels.

We’ve never had a time quite like this for discovering who is, in fact, just awful.

Zero-based indexing was invented _after_ one-based indexing. So it was a deliberate choice someone made. In 2013 a blogger found the guy who originally made that choice & asked why he did it. Turns out it was protection against an arsehole with a yacht.
