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.

Can anyone tell me what these things attached to the wires are (to the right of the mast)?

Could be interesting.
Far Cry 5 may not be a great game in the end, and it might bungle all of its potential, but a decade ago it wouldn't be being made at all. It didn't have the promise of the exotic in it, it contended too much with what were "fringe" fears. But in the age of Trump, Brexit, and the Bundy standoff, those fears must seem realer to the people greenlighting projects, so AAA games are finally more interested in engaging with them. That is a step in the right direction.

That's what I have to deal with in my neighborhood.

And while I can deal with it, it's far from trivial.

And he has seen a few disasters in his time.

They really did their best to make thenselves look guilty, even if there was never any actual collusion (and personally, I'd give 50% odds). And then they realized how embarrassing this was, and tried to bury the investigation in an extremely clumsy manner - and that is now their real problem.

Of course he said that.

Not an unreasonable assessment.

I've shared this in German, and here is the English translation.
