Remember listening to dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson recount explaining monopoly to a Russian exchange student.

Is it a good game? How do you win.

You win when you have all the money and land and everyone else is bankrupt.

Makes you think.

Hey, +Linus Torvalds -- is this really how you want your baby represented?

That is, do you stand behind this "foundation"'s use of the name "Linux" -- and their apparent attempt to squash criticism of one of their corporate members' GPL violation?

The Linux Foundation is an industry organisation dedicated to promoting, protecting and standardising Linux and open source software [1]. The majority of its board is chosen by the member companies - 10 by platinum members (platinum membership costs $500000 a year), 3 by gold members (gold ...

Två repliker av Sara Skyttedal, KD, i SVT:s Debatt alldeles nyss:

"Du vet att det inte är någon som förespråkar en förändring av svensk abortpolitik!" -- Jo, Sara Skyttedal, du förespråkar ju att vårdpersonal ska kunna vägra vård, vilket de hittills inte kan. På vilket vis är detta inte en förändring?

"Det är ingen som säger att vi inte ska ha fri abort!" -- Nej, det är väl det som är problemet: Ni SÄGER det inte, men förändringen ni förespråkar gör ju aborträtten i praktiken betydligt mindre fri. Hur definierar du "lögn", Sara Skyttedal?

Anyone with a bit of brains should have been able to see that. At the latest, at about the same time as Bernie.
 
Why Sanders is the right stuff.
This is him in 2003, giving it straight to Greenspan - and in the process, more or less predict the financial crisis of 2008. At the end, you can hear Greenspan concede to the fact that his model or view of the world - was in fact wrong.

Oh, fer fuxxake... CADE CONRAD!

Hello! Can anyone hear me? Does anyone know Cade Conrad?

Probably a rather young American. He seems to be into computer games and paintball and watching films... Pretty much a typical young dude.

If anybody knows him, or knows how to get hold of him, could you please do me a favour...?

Please tell him to stop signing up for shit on the Internet with M Y gmail address!

Thank you.

No, +Adobe, my update options have not recently changed -- I've had to select "Notify me to install updates" for years now.

How hard would it be to stop lying and save a registry entry -- or cookie or .ini-file or whatever -- to recall my selection?

What the heck was she on about, the woman who displayed a map of the world with big capital-G:s on it on the YLE TV news: "Guggenheim has also had a couple of temporary museums, in Las Vegas and Berlin..."

Wha? Seems somebody -- YLE, or Guggenheim? -- is trying to create an impression that they were meant to be temporary, like in that modern "pop-up" style thing. But nobody called them that while they were operating! They were museums just like the others -- i.e, out of five Guggenheims world-wide, two just simply went bust!

For those who wonder what I'm on about: These two museums were AFAIK never marketed as "Temporary Guggenheim" or "Pop-up museum, only this week, hurry up and go there before we close it down on Monday!" Never alluded to as transient in any way, until after they turned out to be. And, hey, twelve years -- or was it fifteen? Something like that, anyway, in the case of Berlin -- isn't really all that fleeting. Kind of hard to even make out you intended it as a pop-up thingy, given that time scale...

So why try to make it out as such afterwards, is my point. A: To make it seem as if a(n intended-as-)permanent Guggenheim museum is something totally different than these (post-hoc-declared) "temporary" ones, and so of course could never go bust.

Guess which Nordic capital city they're currently trying to get to finance a new building for them, grant them land and so on...?

Vad sjutton gaggade hon om, den där kvinnan som visade upp en världskarta med stora G:n på i YLEs TV-nyheter: "Guggenheim har också haft ett par temporära muséer, i Las Vegas och Berlin..."

Va? Här försöker visst någon -- YLE, eller Guggenheim? -- ge intryck av att de var avsedda att bli tillfälliga, typ lite så där tjusigt "pop up" som är så inne numera. Men så var det ingen som kallade dem när de var igång! De var muséer precis som de andra -- dvs av fem Guggisar har två gått i konken!
