Introduction
Electronics Tech, Linux Geek, Beer Brewer Extraordinaire.

Another thing that you should be aware of, the single most logical fallacy that will engender a sometimes epic reaction is the phrase `begs the question`. There are usually a lot of unproven stances or sheer simple assumptions that have to be true to have `begging the question` have any valid meaning at all. Simply put I will feel the need to destroy not only your assumed position but the positions that you had deemed beyond reproach as well. _petitio petipii_ is one of those triggers to me that make really live up to the comment `stupid people annoy him`. Take it as fair warning one and all.

More and more I find that I must warn people that I am a social libertarian. Which means that I believe government has no reason or rights to interfere with anyones private live. 

1: be civil. You can disagree with me all day long, I enjoy a lively debate and will even admit when I am wrong. However, since this is not real time, you have all the time in the world to compose your responses. If you can not be civil I will infer that neither can you be rational nor logical. I'll give you a warning first, as everyone slips now and then, but if you persist, I have no problems choosing whom I will or wont associate with. I will block you.

2: The occasional animated gif is fine, 6 in a row is abusive spam. Like all spam, I will make the effort so that I don't see it anymore (read unfollow).

*3:* Fill out at least some profile information. If there is nothing there for me to determina anything about you odd are that I will assume that we have no common interest. If I see a Guy Fawkes mask, I'll assume that you have some form of brain damage and do not feel you should be held accountable for your own action.

Awesome story. You are not who your parents are, you are not who your parents raised you as, you are who you choose to be.

Great 'news' indeed.
 
An appeals court has ruled that a blogger is a member of the media for the purposes of defamation law — another decision that helps support the idea of protecting acts of journalism, rather than just specific people who are defined as professional journalists

Got the call from the beer geek at the warehouse. My Game of Thrones beer came in and at the same time they have the last release of Take the Black on tap at the growler bar.

Happy me after work tomorrow.

The only bottle I have saved is a Pliny The Elder bottle. I plan to keep it until I feel I have received enough aesthetic enjoyment from it to justify what I paid for that damn beer.

As to the link of vaccines to autism, it has been debunked repeatedly. Now though they can detect autism in vitro, which drives a nail right into the coffin of the causal link hypotheses.

Today's horrible events highlight something I have said several times. The question of gun violence is not an apples to apples comparison when looking at global statistics. Some places have very totalitarian firearms laws, others not so much.

A more comprehensive and honest set of metrics would be looking at rates of intentional homicide. By singling out firearms you are using a single data point to form a biased opinion, and you can make that bias in any direction you want once you have decided to ignore facts contrary to your position.
