    Yes, too much. That's where I draw the line.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    This is cool. The portraits are scary.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Guessing you haven't seen the black mirror episode then?

    https://www.thewrap.com/black-mirror...ics-metalhead/

    Brooker came up with the episode's central idea by watching videos of Boston Dynamics' robotics products such as BigDog. He found that there was something "creepy" in how the products, if knocked over, would look helpless as they worked to regain their stance.

    You understand that they can put a gun at the end of that arm correct? And that the AI required to identify you as hostile and eliminate you already exists, in fact, it has already been thoroughly tested by those launching those flying robots, which now mostly fly autonomously?

    If you read the quote carefully, he just admitted to the accusation.

    I love his unintentionally incriminating statement:


    “I won’t deny that he began to take his clothes off and propositioned me, but I will deny, on a stack of Bibles with God as my witness, that I did nothing,” Gregory told KDKA.

    See folks (**cough**Art Vandelay**cough**) this is why I'm always trying to help you learn proper English. So when you're arrested with a bound, naked man in your car, you can actually deny wrongdoing without simultaneously admitting it.

    Aerostitch is a homegrown company this now makes some of the premier motorcycle clothing in the world. So I wasn't sure what to think when I saw this. Some of the reviews are pretty funny.

    Gotta be a typo don't you think? The ad copy was funny though - less weight for easier shifting and braking.

    No good deed goes unpunished.

    From what I hear, this poster was made by a student and the dept immediately pulled it down and redesigned it when it showed up. They do this lecture regularly and they rotate the assigned faculty. But I guess internet outrage is fun.

    I'm so confused. So - the Women in Math organization is apparently intended to increase the representation of women in...well...math. But Rat Girl is upset - and not about the poster! Which leads me to believe that she is upset about the concept of getting women represented in math. And she wants women to represent their outrage at the efforts to increase women representation. Right? What am I missing?

    What's the probability that the students who made the flyer knew what they were doing? Funny stuff.

    Thinking back, we were the same in college, it was just different outrage. My crowd was worried about environmentalists and vegetarians - then we all graduated and realized that poor production practices and bad luck were a far greater risk to the survival of a ranch. I guess we always need something to worry about...

    How much did it change the rate? When we put TK2 on the policy, it doubled. It's a joke.

    sorry. fortunately, my wife has the eagle before drivers license rule so my 16 year old can't get his license yet. I think the rule is stupid, but if it saves me a couple hundred a month for several months, greatest rule ever!

    More than doubled. He is costing $387/month. Needless to say, we are shopping around today for a new insurer. A friend in the ward just added their son and they are $200 less per month in total and they have nicer cars and more drivers.
