I am fairly active on Google+, and as you may have noticed I like to discuss many political, technological, scientific and other matters. I generally encourage others to join in. However, here is something you should keep in mind for my stream:

If you want to make an argument and cite a YouTube video in support of your claims, I will not watch it.

This is because using a YouTube video to support your claims forces the other people in the discussion (including me) to consume a lengthy piece of media without any prior indication of its quality - I only have your word that the video actually contains useful information or is good at all. I can speed-read text articles, jump to the relevant bits and do Google searches of key phrases and figures mentioned therein, but with YouTube videos I either have to jump around a lot in the hopes of finding the relevant information (hoping that I haven't missed anything relevant) or be forced to watch it all from the beginning - and that may be minutes or even hours of my life wasted that I won't get back. There is too much bullshit on YouTube as it is - and it's much harder to sort it out in advance than with text articles.

The same goes for podcasts. I may be willing to watch videos or listen to podcasts recommended to me by people whose opinions and knowledge I trust, but that list of people is unlikely to include You, Random Internet Stranger who dropped by for an argument.

So give me some text citations, or don't bother.

Das Urteil ist gefallen: Die NPD wird verboten. Das haben die Richter am Verfassungsgericht in Karlsruhe bekanntgegeben. Vor drei Jahren hatten die Bundesländer den Verbotsantrag gestellt.

Naja, der große Unterschied zwischen Postillon und Spiegel ist ja, daß Postillon weit weniger Fake-News veröffentlicht und besser recherchiert.

I like quoting that letter - it still rings true today.
 
"I had also hoped that the white moderate would reject the myth concerning time in relation to the struggle for freedom. I have just received a letter from a white brother in Texas. He writes: "All Christians know that the colored people will receive equal rights eventually, but it is possible that you are in too great a religious hurry. It has taken Christianity almost two thousand years to accomplish what it has. The teachings of Christ take time to come to earth." Such an attitude stems from a tragic misconception of time, from the strangely irrational notion that there is something in the very flow of time that will inevitably cure all ills. Actually, time itself is neutral; it can be used either destructively or constructively. More and more I feel that the people of ill will have used time much more effectively than have the people of good will. We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people. Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be co workers with God, and without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right. Now is the time to make real the promise of democracy and transform our pending national elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. Now is the time to lift our national policy from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of human dignity."-- MLK, Letter from a Birmingham Jail

Naja, auch wenn man es kaum glauben mag und es auch gar nicht wahrhaben mag, so ist die Bild-Zeitung leider die einflußreichste und reichweitenstärkste deutsche Zeitung. Somit ist es nur sinnvoll diesem Blatt Interviews zu geben. Machen deutsche und andere Politiker ja auch schon seit Generationen.

The years ahead.
 
This is pretty depressing, especially in light of the president-elect's first press conference.
Watching Trump’s presser, I had a feeling I’d seen it all before — while covering Vladimir Putin’s annual news conferences.

Wir hatten im Rahmen einer Rabattaktion für 15% über Lieferheld mehrere Pizzen bestellt, an einem nicht aussergewöhnlichen Samstag. Eine Viertelstunde später erhielten wir einen Anruf von Lieferheld, dass Pizza Italia den Auftrag nicht durchführen würden - "sie hätten zu viel zu tun".

Unlike most other breads sold in Columbus I have seen so far, the bread here is actually edible. Visitors from Europe should still tone down their expectations a notch, however. For example, the bread sold as "French baguette" is much denser inside than the baguette sold in Europe, making it less airy and harder to chew than the original. However, it does have a crust that doesn't shrivel up from fright merely by looking at it. If you are from Europe and crave bread, you might want to take a look at Panera Bread. It won't be as good as back home, but the odds that you will find something better in the United States seem to be limited. Otherwise, you will either learn to live without - or make your own bread.
