I haven't used google maps in a while, and so I discovered that I no longer know how to use it.   Nothing clickable makes sense.

Ah there I can help...you now have to click on the point where you want to see, and in a moment (it's laggy, at least for me), it'll show you a Street View thumbnail in that top left dialogue box.  Click the thumbnail.  It spins you into the Street View which is precisely as much fun as you can imagine it'd be for someone as sensitive to motion sickness as I am. :p

The controls within Street View have changed as well, but frankly those are improved.  It used to be there was a floaty box you could put over things and click to zoom, but it was hard to aim.  Now you can zoom at any point using a little plus-minus control, which I think is in the bottom right corner.

Take gamergaters and mra's, throw in new athiests and libertarians, simmer in a broth of self-entitlement and season with a lack of empathy, and you have the new cultural identity of Redpill.  Warning, taking the red pill will turn you into an asshole.

Out the gate, the Republican House goes for a law silencing scientists, and the Republican Senate goes for that job-killer Keystone pipeline.

Sounds about right for the GOP.

Call it what you like as long as you regulate the dangerous weapons like VAGINAS but leave honest people's good-guy-protection devices like guns alone.

No really, its about ethics in game journalism.

#gamergate
r/KotakuInAction bills itself as the responsible, respectful wing of GamerGate. The online activity of its moderators tells a much different story. (Warning: This post contains disturbing images.)

I am very glad to be home from the hospital.

For those who did not know already, 6 weeks ago I called 911 when I smelled gangrene from a badly infected foot wound.  I spent the next 5 weeks and change in the hospital/nursingcare getting IV antibiotics and mostly bedridden (i was kept off my foot).  Nothing had to be amputated, but I had a bone infection which made the antibiotics stronger and longer.

It was a frustrating, boring, depressing, agonizing experience, and to boot my dog Preston had to be put to sleep while I was in there.  I'm not going to detail the infuriating bits, except to say I am not surprised people have to fight for their healthcare in a system where the doctors are incentivized to spend as little time as possible caring for you.  I literally had a doctor cut me off mid-question and flee my room because I was asking too many.

On the other hand, thanks to Obamacare, I am better and my care was covered.  Without it, I would likely have something amputated, and because of that, be in a care facility unable to even get to the bathroom myself.

Now comes the hard task of exercising to get as much mobility as I can, self-discipline has never been a strong suit of mine.  And I am losing my roommate, who has really been helpful with the small things that make a huge difference, like picking up my prescriptions.

So I am facing many scarey challenges and changes.  Life can be that way.

Yeah they probably stabilized your blood sugar long enough for your preferences to change!

Republican ideology is toxic to civilization.   As an example of its consequences, you just have to look at Kansas.   But if you want to see what the rest of us are fighting for, what we could accomplish if they got out of the way, what Republicans keep trying to destroy, just look at:
No other place mixes affordability, opportunity, and wealth so well. What’s its secret?

So this is pretty awesome..

The Humanist Community At Harvard is hosting a little award ceremony to name Anita Sarkeesian their Humanist of the year for 2014.  I like Sarkessian, if only because she pisses off anti-feminists of all sorts to no end.  So yay her.

But it gets awesomer.

Greg Epstein is the Humanist Caplain at Harvard, and is getting the flack for this decision.  There is a tweet war going on as every misogynist is crawling out of their holes to express their outrage about it.   Like I said, every anti-feminist hates her.  But what is amazing are responses as he blocks them.   Like this one:

"@BlueBallSkeptic what we're thinking awarding Anita? Feminism=central to humanism; she=brave/important; & you=blocked if only f/your handle"

Go ahead, read them.  It will brighten your day.  He seems to be having fun.  :)

If you are one of the idiots who think that oil pipelines are safe and Keystone will be good for this country, please consider this.

By far, the environmental destruction caused by pipeline spills is far greater than that caused by rail and trucking accidents.

maybe if you didn't speak to people in a rude way and call them idiots, they'd listen a little more.

Fuck yeah.

"A couple of years ago, I wrote a piece on my personal feminism, in which I noted that while I can be considered a feminist on the fundamental level of “women are entitled to the same rights and privileges as men, with everything that implies in terms of access to education, economic opportunity and personal liberty,” I usually didn’t call myself one, for various and what I thought at the time were perfectly reasonable reasons.

Then 2014 happened, and those reasonable reasons now kind of feel like careful, rationalizing bullshit to me.

So, as an update to my thoughts on my personal feminism:

Hell yes, I’m a feminist."

Back when G+ had that shiny new-car smell, I got into a discussion with a guy who adamantly called himself a feminist, but spewed some of the most absurd sexism I've ever encountered.  (To the point of pasting the entirety of a Satoshi Kanazawa blog post when I asked him for proof that women were "objectively" more attractive than men.)

He was very angry when I called him out on his sexism - in his mind he couldn't possibly be sexist because he was a proud feminist.

If my actions cause someone to call me a feminist, I will take it as a great compliment.   If someone doesn't see me as a feminist, then it means I need to work harder - but I am reluctant to claim the title for myself.

After taking a few days off from Google+ to calm myself down, I've decided to write about Ferguson and how it relates to me. I felt it was best to write on +Medium to avoid the giant post that won't get read. It's a 9 minute read written in my classic style of writing, for your Turkey Day festivities.
