Pretty interesting historical perspective on the consumption that has rotted the GOP from the inside out.

I don't think the Founding Fathers would have thought of This as Very Funny.
In fact, I Think they Are Slapping their Heads not to Have Thought about It.
Oh well. not to fault them, how could they know how the system could be circumvented?
I think they did pretty well in spite of all. But we need to establish some tighter rules. I often laugh, but always not as much, when people call the President of the United States, "mister". Well, he actually has a Ph.D. and it should be "doctor". So that's Dr. Pres. Barrack Obama, or would you prefer Pres. Barrack Obama Ph.D.
In any case he did a bang up job. I wasn't too keen in the first term, but in the second he did yeoman's work. I can actually see for myself want he did for healthcare, and actually me personally.
We can't go back to the Dark Ages as a Country, as we will not. That's a promise.

In a desperate attempt to blame anyone but themselves, Republicants now target academic lefties.
Academics fact-check the persistent idea, promoted at GOP convention, that liberal professors politically indoctrinate their students.

Dubya's call for abstinence to stop #AIDS is now demonstrably idiotic.

"A rigorous comparison of national data from countries that received abstinence funding under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with those that got none of the funding showed no difference in the age of first sexual experience or in the number of sexual partners or teenage pregnancies—all aspects of behaviors that have been linked to a higher risk of becoming infected with HIV. Instead the study showed that one of the most important factors associated with lower levels of risky behavior was the number of years women remained in school."

Also, more evidence of the significance of #education for both individual and societal well-being.
The effort was supposed to prevent the spread of HIV—but it didn’t work, according to the most comprehensive study of the program

Drumpf failed miserably at doing what Obama did years ago: use reddit as an election tool.
He kept his "Ask Me Anything" session in his own subreddit, and had his drones carefully edit out anything that painted him as the useless, dickless sack of hammers he really is.
The Donald ignored pressing tech questions on privacy, Snowden, and laser strikes.

I live alone and I'm totally outnumbered. Probably at least 10:1...oh boy, I'm a-shakin' in me boots...one of those guns might wake up and kill me someday. One can only wish.
I think the thing that will do me in is that long-ass bastard knife. I'll probably get drunk one night and have it impale me down the stairs. We should take pictures.

Drumpf is going to host a Reddit AMA on Wednesday.
I am so hoping that goes how it really ought to go.
This may be the first time I actually "tune in" to an AMA.

+Filippo Salustri Every time he opens his mouth it goes very badly, but his followers don't seem to care. Pisses me off, and the US gets a black eye for even nominating him (which probably accounts for about 20% of the whack jobs living here). But he has not been elected for anything!
Did Canada get a black eye for having Harper in there for so long? Hmm, maybe a slight bruise is all. Did Australia get a shiner from that conservative asshole wanting to go back to Knights and shit while wanting to build more shipping lanes through the Great Barrier Reef? Not really.
See my point?

I fear Wikileaks is helping Trump.

I am deeply concerned that the recent Wikileaks release of DNC emails will only help Trump, by keeping some democrats away from the voting booth in protest or convincing them to vote for a 3rd candidate who cannot possibly win.

...Can Sanders lose the DNC nomination, then become an independent candidate and continue to run?

Everything matters, all the time.
Introduction
I'm a design methodologist and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada. I've been called long-winded, a meritocrat, a secular humanist, and a post-positivist, as if these were bad things. Go figure.

I'm verified 100% Humanist by the BHA Humanist Quiz.
Bragging rights
Two teaching awards, two minor appearances on Daily Planet, and been told twice that I'll burn in hell. And I've been blocked by the witless Deepak Chopra on twitter!

Why Academic Journals Are Teaming Up With Reddit | MediaShift

Nice, pleasant cafe in the main Halifax library. Two areas: one on the ground floor, the other at the top with a small but very nice outdoor seating area that gives a reasonable view of the city. Typical pricing. Selection is a bit more limited than I would have liked. But the food is good and wholesome, and the coffee is quite well made. Great place to get some reflective silence.

Quite a broad range of alternatives in mid- and high-end lighting. And if they don't actually have it, they can pull out a huge assortment of catalogs. Good contacts with suppliers who in turn have good turnaround on getting information to prospective customers via email. Typical pricing. Staff seems quite enthusiastic once they know you actually want to buy something, but are a bit distant if they're not sure you want to drop coin.

Cheesy, horribly designed, impossible to navigate, targeting shoppers disinterested in actual quality goods. Would have only 1 star were it not for the Lego store.

Best mall in the GTA. Huge variety of stores. Beautiful, open spaces. Reasonably good layout. Classy without being posh. One big problem: it used to have commuter parking, but it seems to have eliminated that in favour of more stores. Bad move. I - and many other commuters like me - have dropped thousands of dollars over the years on the way to or from work at that mall. Now I have virtually no reason to go there.

Great place for "antique" doors, door hardware, and the odd bit of lighting. Many of the doors require aesthetic restoration, but they seem to be quite solid and usable. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Not for those living on a budget.

Small, friendly pizzeria. Pretty good selection of food. Somewhat limited beer selection. Very good timing. The staff that served me was appropriately casual yet professional. Reasonable prices for the area. Conveniently located. Probably best to go slightly off-hours to get a table.

Used to be better than it is. As a result of massive underfunding, it keeps becoming less and less. And The Crystal (the post-modern extension to the North) shall always be an abomination. Nonetheless, its collection of natural and human history artifacts is wonderful. I would stay away from the modern shows and exhibits and stick to the classic stuff. That's the important stuff anyways. As Santayana said, those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it. If you care at all about preserving the past as a guide to our future, help the ROM by going to visit it at least once a year.
