    I just can’t imagine there won’t be a large percentage, possibly even a majority, of people who tell tech companies to shove their “virtual keys” where the moon don’t shine.

    Of course I’m wrong a lot…

    “Pyrs are independent, awesome dogs,…

    And I love mine dearly but they can be a PITA, they protect their territory, which is defined as anywhere their eyes can see so taking one on a walk can be a challenge (at least for Mr. Bones) that the light hearted would do good to avoid.

    The Biblical “Kingdom of God” strikes me as being a lot closer to North Korea-style coerced dictator adulation writ cosmic than Ashley Hales’ description. But I agree it’s a not bad description of the land of the freedomista.

    Another grand slam from Jim Bovard. I’m curious why you linked via WRSA rather than directly. If “Why it matters” alludes to those who don’t get it, there’s rich mining in the same vein available here.

    Hinkle worries me. What he calls my cooking.

    “Do you know how gross that is? Imagine eating a large plate of cow’s eyes and fish guts and washing them down with the smelly juice that collects at the bottom of a Dumpster after a light rain.”

    I cook 80% with a cast iron pan with lid. Rinse with boiling water, use for coffee. Left coast loves me. No food or portable water wasted.

    The “twenty-four times people entered the wrong search terms” is hysterical. esp:
    6 tesla cat
    14 spongedog
    22 chicken coupe

    The Scott Greenfield article and what Shel linked?
    I’ma goin’ to just go grab a beer…

    That would be “potable” water. But portable is ok too.
    I argue with spell check a lot.
    My spelling is atrocious, and spell check is sneaky and can be tyrannical.
    Sometimes it offers back to me my completely retarded errors. Life is fun.

    There seems to be a lot of studies and reports of hallucinogens having tremendous results in many mental health issues,use as a treatment for alcoholism is one.Breaks down destructive pathways in brain and opens up new pathways that makes withdrawals almost a non issue.The guy who made AA said a drug,(was it LSD?) was what he attributed his cure from alcoholism to.

    Then we have great reports of various cannabis substances being used in pain control,as a substitute for narcotics for folks who want to dump opioid drugs for one,then in treatment for seizures or Parkinsons like with Larry on youtube.

    We can thank the pinheads and control freaks who think they own YOUR body for the war on drugs that has kept these great treatments from reaching us.
