It is the foundation of morality. It is the difference between theft and charity... Between rape and love making... Between assault and sparring... Between stealing and sharing... Between deception and make-believe... Between stalking and a relationship... Between slavery and service... Between force and cooperation.

It is CONSENT. And it matters.

Consent is the dividing line between morally acceptable human interaction and morally unacceptable human interaction. There is no person or group of persons exempt from this standard. We all know this to be true.

Isn't it time we started living like it? If you want to call yourself a moral person, you must not knowingly tolerate or advocate for the violation of another's consent. And you must certainly neither plead for it nor commission it.

And yet most of us not only tolerate it or support it, most of us ask for and even willingly pay to accomplish it.

That is called moral depravity.

Which side of the line do you live on?

I love all of my boys... Just... Like... This... Even the ones who don't give me companionship, per se. They give each other companionship, and that's just as important to me. <3 I try to be a good mom to all my kids. :)

Thanks everyone for making that kickstarter our most successful SMBC book launch ever! If you just missed it and still want in, we will briefly be offering pre-orders. Discuss this comic in the forum. November 18, 2015. Our latest book did wildly better than expected.

In response to terrorism, I'm not going to get political; I'm going to try to make the world a little bit better as I walk through it. There is no battlefront. The attackers are people who feel that suicide attacks are better than their daily lives. The only solution I can think of is to improve the day of everybody I encounter. #iloveyou

The system wants you to lash out, and although revolution is necessary, it falls right into the Grand Design of the Elders of Zion's blueprint to divide the people while giving "authority" a reason to respond w/ unparalleled reprisal. Good post.

This could have gone horribly wrong.
 
Reason #1234197 to own a Tesla Model S — freaking everyone out in public places as you stuff your child into the trunk, where there are rear-facing seats. 
Police waited at the home of a family after someone called in seeing the parents “put a child in the trunk” of the car — someone who clearly wasn’t aware that the Tesla Model S can be equipped with a third row of seats for children.

Earlier this year I made a feature for CM called LiveDisplay which does exactly this. It reduces the color temperature of your screen as the sun goes down, and returns it back to normal as the sun rises. I use Redshift on my laptop, but most phones benefit even more since they often are calibrated to an absurdly high temperature by default.

The feature can also boost contrast and brightness when under extremely bright lights to make the display more readable.

We're certainly not the pioneers of this, but I haven't seen a device which could do this out of the box (with hardware acceleration too).

It's been effective for me at least :)
Manufacturers need to do more to prevent the light from smartphones and tablets disrupting people's sleep, says a leading doctor.

I've been riding a bicycle to and from work for the past year plus, and every time I'm bundling up to leave on a 60 degree night like this my co-workers say things like "oh it's not that cold out."

It is at 20mph, lol.

Oh great bike knowledge keepers, I've somewhat looked over the net about the use/purchase of a Trek Crossrip Elite, a bike modeled as a hearty road commuter.

Is it too broad of a question to ask if there is a place in the world for a seemingly middle of the road bike like that? Any competitors below that price point with the same perceived value/durability?

+Eric Hansen, thoughts/links to read? I vicariously live through your bike skill mastery, good sir.

#1 thing in buying a bike is that it fits.  All other things are secondary.  If a bike doesn't fit you it's going to suck.  

This gets really important when you get 1 sigma off of the mean for human male sizes, as your choices fewer and further between and get harder and harder to zero on.  

Midgets and giants have a much harder time finding a lot of choices that fit, that aren't fringe bikes at ridiculous costs.

It's not the odds. It's the stakes.
Introduction
"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good Blaster at your side, kid."

I'm just a regular guy I guess. The kind of regular guy who likes non-aggressive people following the non-aggressive axiom.

Because of this, you and I may be different.

This difference will literally be how we may see violence as, or as not, a moral premise. 

For the last three years, I have changed my life because of this. 

I feel so strongly about it that I have made it my personal responsibility to solve two types of problems that violence, or the mere threat of violence causes, which are:
  1. Not being a victim of violence by empowering people to defend themselves by the most technologically advanced means possible, and by
  2. Directly aiding those who have been the victims of violence by working as an emergency medical professional

So at its heart, if we are different in this way, I see our views on using force as the difference and I don't know if any discussions can happen by either of us forgoing this moral premise that perhaps only I bare. 

<Obama> But let me be clear </Obama> , I don't mean this to say that you are explicitly ok with violence, far from it, but I do believe if you just considered the "reason or force" axiom, that everything above it from a moral construct just falls apart. You may even come to realize the violence you participate in every day. 

Still here? 

I love analog gaming, defensive art pursuits, reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy, though lately it's been all non-fiction as I've found the psychology of stress/combat fascinating and helpful. 

Having been on G+ for a bit of time, I find that I post a lot of firearm self-defense related thoughts. If you'd like to be a part of that ramble, please let me know directly so I can add you to those circles, if by reading your own profile this reciprocal interest doesn't immediately stand out to me. Please include me in any self-defense pursuits you may have, and I do mean any form of martial arts, weapons involvement or not.

I was lucky enough to have worked for one of the most prestigious civilian firearm training facilities in the United States, and I still conduct my own freelance firearm training when not focused on school during these recent times. Know that all my postings are of my own, and not representative of my several private EMS employers. 

#drypractice I mean today. No, I'm not joking.

Go train. Heavily consider a Rangemaster road class or a Tactical Response class in Camden, TN (whom also travel extensively.) 

Before Rangemaster's closing of its of physical location in August of 2014 for full time road class requirements, I assisted in teaching fighting tactics at Rangemaster. I consider my greatest self-defensive arts impact to be, so far, as having to assist in running our practical shooting league which was held once a week for almost 16 years running. Our school, up to that point that we know about, had 64 students involved in personal violent encounters, all of which had been won by our students. If you have heard of a better record for student involved civilian violent encounters, I beg you to let me know. I'd like to train at your place too.  

I like engineering and science, and have the goals of doing these disciplines with greater wisdom. Please share with me anything along those lines. :)
