Well look at it this way, there only a very very small amount of the state that's actually coastline. The rest is all inland. Smiley: nod

Besides, it's U.S. Geography, would anyone over there even know or care anyway?

The thing with American politics is that we're largely still arguing the same exact **** we were arguing about back in 1789 when we ratified our constitution. And because of that, our entire political system has essentially been worked around it.

The thing to remember is that the US was a nation of immigrants and one of the first to come into its own during the Age of Enlightenment. But where later revolutions were motivated and influenced by a great deal more thought and debate to the political philosophy (most notably Marx), we came into it relatively early in that process.

So because of that, the principles we were founded on have realistically left a severe issue with regards to ideas surrounding power of the people and power of the government. Essentially, we were founded as a small government system on a political philosophy that calls for a severe unequal distribution of power... but we were a republic (sort of - oligarchy, technically).

So essentially the entirety of our political debate since then has entailed figuring out how we determine the role of government, power of the people, and definitions of equality under that political philosophy. And our modern parties are essentially direct descendants of those original groups, with some significant exceptions.

That basic conflict has changed with the times, with industrialization, the rise of unionization, civil rights, etc. And the Democratic Party and the Republican Party essentially swapped core ideologies in the mid-20th Century due entirely to a significant change in the stance on social issues in the party, but that's essentially how it has gone down.

It's basically ALWAYS been defined by two characteristics: position on race, position on the power of the worker vs. the power of the industrialist.

Gender has been a hot-button issue at times, and topics related to abortion, marriage, rape, and divorce waxing and waning over the past two centuries.

And that's American politics in a nutshell.

Right now, it's social and economic liberals to the left, social and economic conservatives to the right. At other points, the social and conservative positions have been mismatched (Democratic-Republicans were the ones who owned the most Slaves, originally, but they LOVED them some small government heavy on state power).

The difference between American and world education systems is that other places learn about the world. We learn so little about everything from world history to geography.

Which is a shame, because the vast majority of Americans have no reason to care about where North Dakota is, but a **** of a lot of reason to know the basic geography of Eastern Asia.

That's a depressingly concise summary.

As long as the political philosophies of our parties are founded on fundamentally opposed ideas at the ground level, there's not much we can really do. The sheer extent to which they are in opposition is just absurd.

You look at most countries with binary party systems, and the parties are ultimately quite similar, in that they've accepted the fundamental baseline of their government as being something that is valuable and worthwhile.

In America, it tends to be about "NO PROTECTIONS FOR RACE" which forces the other party to counter with "ALL THE PROTECTIONS FOR RACE" and then we all just pray they meet somewhere in the middle and it's not a disorganized mess.

In other developed nations, it tends to be more like "Some protections for race!" and "Some MORE protections for race!" Which sets the baseline pretty high compared to us.

you think having two monolithic parties that have no real central unity helps?

a liberal republican and a conservative democrat are, well can be, the same thing. they just get money and have friends from different clubs.

I think I could point out a good bit, the coast north of New York is a **** of mini states that should just merge into one blue state already, I mess up on the area around Lake Michigan a lot and I couldn't say which great empty midwest state is which but the coasts and the south I should get most if not all.

That doesn't work, they'd just all blend together into one big "middle" party. The party colour, of course, would be grey and occasionally there'd be an appendage or two that pretends to split off from the big grey party and shouts at it for a while so people can voice their dissatisfaction before said appendage fades away or melds back into the grey party.

The Tea Party isn't really a third party, simply because it's essentially what you get when you crank the Republican platform up to 11 and add a healthy dose of anarchy.

And they can't survive without the general party support. Very few districts have (or will ever have) a large enough population of Tea Party voters for them to win elections without the general party bloc behind them.

Damn, this number bloat is worse than I thought. Just went into a heroic with a Warlock who was doing 1.3 million damage on his Chaos Bolt crits (auto-crits)... so... yeah... try maintaining aggro through that.

And the Disc Priest healer was doing more damage than the two other damage dealers (fresh 90's) combined. It's kind of ridiculous. I'm at 476 equipped ilvl (vendor epics), and I only do 50k DPS. I refuse to believe that 50 ilvls will increase my damage output by 300%, so I must be doing it wrong. It makes no sense.

In other news, I went out and got myself one of them electronic cigarettes. Also got me some nicotine juice from Sweden (because it's illegal to sell it here). I'm not sure what I think about it. The tobacco flavor tastes nothing like tobacco, so I might just go all-out weird flavors in the future, like coffee and bacon. That might be hilariously awesome combined.

The vaporization mimics smoke pretty well, but I miss the hot throat burn of a real cigarette. Probably because of the lack of tar and 3,999 other chemicals. This nicotine juice apparently only contains two E-numbers, both of which are harmless, as they break down into vinegar and other acids that are already present in the body. It's kinda nice being able to get the nicotine shot without having to worry about throat, mouth and lung cancer, though. And I get to puff away like I use to, unlike with nicotine chewing gum.

My PI decided today that he'll let me do a research assistantship (unpaid) on the side so I can publish a paper that isn't pure theory. Because pure theory is hard to actually get to the publishing state in 18 15-hour weeks, and I can easily run calculations in the background and dedicate 2-3 hours a week to evaluating them and writing them up.

There are like 4 people in my class doing astro stuff. They're all kind of screwed because NASA is down and they're still in the literature review phase.

Oh, I'll probably end up in the US. I want to work with this guy. He's like the John Pople of the present and he's supposed to be really nice and approachable.

Or do you mean for this project? Either H4O2+ calculations, or simulation of hydrogen storage stuff.

My actual main project is coming up with another algorithm for computing interaction energies between molecules/atoms on reactive PE surfaces.

There was an interesting post on Kotaku about how pokemon design is actually getting much better over time, but nostalgia is keeping people from appreciating that. Like, people are **** off about Honedge's evolution (two swords), when it's pretty much no different from dugtrio or Magneton.

Also, apparently the change to a lot of the art style, in ways, is because they're making it easier for kids to draw the pokemon, which I can get behind.

But as of right now, none of the designs are too ridiculous.

I'm not sure that's fair.

For one, the Dex listings say that those keys on the ring are actually just keys. Because it has a fascination with them, trainers give Klefki their keys, because they know it won't lose them (like they might). They also specify it's very popular with shopkeepers as a result. And why wouldn't it be - your key is always under armed guard. Smiley: lol

And here's the thing; it's a Fairy Pokemon.

A love of keys (and propensity to steal them) is a REALLY old trait of Faeries in Fairy Tales. And if you lump them and elves together, the Shopkeeper part of the story fits right in.

/shrug

That seems okay to me. Whether or not it's a fairy that took the shape of a key because it was interested in them, or a fairy that took a fascination to keys because they look similar to it, etc., remains to be seen. But I have no problems with the design.

Now, if those keys were a part of it, I might. Smiley: lol

On the other hand, if this is actually the final form of the fire starter, I might be willing to accept Fennekin as the best-designed starter to-date. The Froakie final evolution looks badass, too. I don't love Chesnaught yet, but we'll see with time. I'm not sure I understand the squirrel -> sloth evolution they seem to have gone with. Smiley: lol

I'm not saying I don't love the originals. I adore them. But I have to admit, they can be just as insane.

Cubone is a pokemon that wears its mother's skull, and evolves so that its mother's skull is fused to it. But that's universal. And while fan theories love thinking it's a Kangaskhan baby that lost its mother, the fact remains that's logically insane in its current state... especially now that we have pokemon breeding, and the mothers come through just fine.

Or how about Farfetch'd? The pokemon that carries its own seasoning around with it? Apparently it can't live without that leek, but it might eat it in an emergency and run off to find a new one? Why can't it live without it? It's not attached, and it's not a grass pokemon?

And it's not like item-based pokemon are new. Voltorb and Electrode are the ones that started that trend. At least now they give the item-based pokemon an honest effort. They don't just make their signature self-destruct and then pretend like it's not an issue that they never die.

I dunno. It's just a pokemon that looks similar to a key. But it's not THAT close to one, at all, without the other keys there for comparison.

Honestly, if you saw that pokemon without the keys on the ring, would you have ever really thought that's what it looked like? With the name, I would have thought it was meant to look like a music note.

Driving in this morning listening to my local NPR radio station broadcasting BBC news hour. They're interviewing someone in Texas about the shutdown. The woman says (you have to imagine this as a pretty high pitched female voice, with the sound of incredulity and a southern accent) "I thought Obamacare was free. But its not! If I thought it was free, how many other people thought it was free? We need to just repeal this whole thing. Praise our great senator for doing his part!"

I found myself yelling at the radio for some reason. "Moron! Why would you think it was free? Because your state doesn't want to have anything to do with it, and you get your news from talk shows! Get your head out of your ass!" Then I thought, "I need to stop listening to the radio before I have my coffee."

It's gonna be a long day.

She was being interviewed by BBC and it was broadcast on NPR. I'm assuming she does not listen to NPR because that's a communist front that her senator, praise him, and other right wing politicians have targeted for a long, long time as an example of what's wrong with America.

If you would add in "those stupid cartoons" once or twice you'd sound just like my dad.

You had me doing a double-take. At first I was sure you meant her when you said "someone," then I thought my sarcasm meter was surely broken and you meant me when you said "someone." Hence the edit.

Also, because it is so closely related to the subject at hand - I got a letter from someone yesterday that I cannot stop laughing about, or showing to people in the office to make them laugh. I got a feeling it's not that funny but that maybe it's just been a long week for me.

First sentence is the standard "acknowledge receipt" of my letter with attachment. Second sentence "advises" me that my 1,041 page attachment is incorrect because it is missing a page. Third sentence, and it's the first three words of this sentence that I can't stop laughing about, begins, "It is thus that I enclose . . ."

What? Is he handing me two stone tablets with 10 commandments written on them or something? Why can't people just say, "Thanks, but I noticed a page is missing. I'm attaching a copy of the page for your convenience."


[Ohh, maybe above, instead of saying "Hence the edit," I should have said "It is thus that I edited my post."!]

You seem to have forgotten to mention that this is in the Netherlands. What the **** is it? A Lego bridge?

It is apparently a real bridge that is used every day.
