Comment Re:I think it's pretty obvious (Score 1) 160

There was a funny meme on Facebook attributing different forms of xenophobia to opposing each of the different big Democrats. I realized at that point that Democrats have completely lost touch with reality. You can't just insult people you disagree with and call it a day. That just leaves a lot of pissed off people about.

Up until that point, I only thought it was the Republicans that were actively striving to alienate as much of the electorate as they possibly can.

Sooner or later people will just get numb to the accusations and not care about them any more because they know they're total bullsh*t.

People are starting to talk about 3rd party candidates.

I will state for the record that we are libertarians that would otherwise be republicans if not for their unholy alliance with the Southern Baptist Convention. I have no problems admitting that really. I am not a purist. The major parties have just both gone batshit insane with the Mussolini on one side and Lenin on the other.

Divorces seem to attract vindictive b*tches (of both genders) that want to "burn the other party to the ground". It really has nothing to do with the lawyers. They're only the weapon here. What they do or don't do merely reflects the will of the client.

Some people don't need any encouragement to slit their own throats.

An amicable separation is 5 minutes in front of the judge with no lawyers at all.

That's great until you want some resource from some remote location you think is worthless. That could be a natural resource, or something that you don't want located in your back yard.

Your concrete jungle is pretty helpless disconnected from those areas that aren't "economically valuable".

As a uni-tasker, the DVR has a much superior interface for doing that one thing that it does. Streamers are the same way. It's really stupid to do your video viewing on a PC unless it's operating as a video appliance.

Desktop apps exhibit varying degrees of suckage in this department.

Comment Re:Cable content is worth more (Score 1) 174

A lot of cable content is total dreck and 40 year old reruns. 4 channels worth of content have been spread over 500 channels. A lot of channels are things like golf and shopping. Others are only useful for a single show. A lot of the "first run" stuff is the same formulas recycled ad infinitum.
