A reminder of the echo chamber we live in. http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2016-election-forecast/ shows that Trump is behind by just 21 electoral votes. Moore is a bit of a scare-monger, but he has one thing correct: if Ohio and Pennsylvania vote for Trump and everyone else holds, Trump wins.
This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president.

We are taking advice from Michael Moore. When did he put down that last hamburger ?

Some photos from a few weeks ago, where we showed that it is possible to go kayak camping for 3 nights with kids at Tomales Bay. The hardest part was bringing in enough water & firewood.

Discovered and learned to play a new song today, one that sadly rings so true, 30 years after it was recorded.

Love this professor's response to complaints from his student(s).

1st year law school student writes a complaint about her professor having worn a Black Lives Matter t-shirt during class. The professor's response is priceless.

My opinion is much less brutal. Works most of the time. Pretty amazing considering how many people I see playing this. Ingress is a better game but compared to real games they both suck anyway. Collecting cute animals is overall better than being a cyberpunk scifi nerd. The verisimilitude of other couples and gaggles of nerds downtown hunting Pokemon is really cool. I'll probably keep playing it for a while :)

You know, as a kid in east bumblefuck Kentucky, I learned about racism at a pretty early age. Honestly, though, by the time I was in high school and college, I always felt really sheltered from it. It was never an issue because when you are in the "smart kids" world, nobody gives a shit about that stuff.

But I still remember a job I had in the late 90s. There was this black kid who came in to interview for a developer job. He was a 20-something nerdy guy interviewing at a company of 20 something nerdy guys. Every single tech person that interviewed him said, "Yeah, we should hire him." Then the director came in with some, "I don't think he is a cultural fit."

I have a fucking visceral response now anytime I hear anyone talk about a "cultural fit" for a job.

I don't think I have since, or hopefully will again, see it laid out like that. Sure, I live in the south. Hell, in the bay area I heard someone casually use the word nigger a couple of weeks ago. That is just ignorance, and it usually comes from the lower levels of white society. Racism, after all, is mostly a tool to keep poor white people from getting pissed about their lot in life, as long as they have it better than someone else. But seeing someone who deserved a job get turned away because the boss didn't think he was a "cultural" fit? Yeah. That is the real fucking hardness of racism in the US today. As a straight white male, I'm not sure if I was born on second, but you know what? I got turns at bat.
I’m an educated, Caucasian, heterosexual male. Does this ensure I will have success? No, but it damn sure drops me on second base.

Just this morning, my 5 year old asked me why the earth is getting warmer. I wonder how many years will pass before she sees a year cooler than the previous one (if ever).

I wonder how many Apple users had silently paid the 30% tax because they didn't know better (and wow, Apple cut them loose once they turned off iTunes subscription)
