    I dream that someday, when order is restored and the Internet back online, my companions will Google their erstwhile comrade at arms and make a lolsy discovery.

    lol, but MASH is actually good.

    Mine was a later-era Agnostic Front song. Half-drunk me is such a cheesy piece of garbage.

    Lol I am too embarrassed to admit mine until someone else goes first.

    Still lurkin' over here. How's everybody doing?

    Is there anything good on television? I kind of like Taboo, although I think English people are super ham handed with racial issues.

    We'll probably get past this particular cycle with semi-intact institutions, but over the medium term, I really think we're screwed. Resource inequality has the demonstrable quality of making people freak out, and I don't think any of our leaders really get it or are motivated to fix it.

    That is a surprisingly thoughtful for a DCShows.net post, lol.

    I hang out with biologists, so I tend to look at it through an evolutionary lens, but I reach basically the same conclusion. Human beings are fundamentally negative creatures, because being skeptical and hostile kept our forebears alive and screwing.

    Now we're in a novel situation -- historically, technologically, intellectually, institutionally -- but behaviors and ideas that play to our worse traits seem to work as well as ever. If the drive of all civilization is to create a fundament that plays to our better traits and curbs things that play to our worse ones, I guess the lesson here is that whatever we've built so far is pretty flimsy.

    I would not have, but only because I do not think my level of "game" is sufficient to pull off this delicate maneuver.

    @Herbert Typing out "my wife's new friends who have to deal with me" was too many words.

    Man, I don't even know. I just type the words and was all, "WAIT IS IT OKAY TO SAY THIS?"
