It’s a good thing some bands sell out, because I can’t make out without a girlfriend, and whenever I have responsibilities, I want out.

Future anthropologist: “In the early 21st century, there was a superstition against writing your True Email explicitly. You had to write it obliquely, like ‘scott at symbol shireroth dot org’. They believed that if anyone wrote their email out explicitly, it would draw the attention of hostile spirits, and the person would never again know peace.”
i prefer tea to coffee, coffee to coherent preferences, and coherent preferences to tea. should i fix this or have a hot caffeinated drink?
Letting people migrate across borders is not enough; we need to let land migrate across borders too.
So instead of moving the people across the borders, we should move the borders across the people. What people are really voting for, when they vote with their feet, is imperialism. They want to be ruled by foreigners.
Imperialism has a bad name only because, in the past, countries moved to places where the people living there didn't want to be ruled by foreigners. But that is not what we are talking about here. New imperialism would be different and much better than the old, precisely because we are talking about moving countries to places where the people living there do want to be ruled by foreigners.
Instead of thinking about borders as geographically fixed, we should think of borders as geographically fluid markers of boundaries between rulers, moving back and forth across the land according to the ebb and flow of preferences of who wants to live under which ruler.
And my guess is that nearly all the people who want to move to Finland would be equally happy to move to Sweden or Denmark or even Germany, France, or the UK. Rather than individual European countries doing it alone, like under old imperialism, new imperialism should be a pan-European project.
Fortunately, Europe already has in place the institutional structure that could implement renewed imperialism, namely the EU itself. But perhaps the US and Canada (as countries founded by European immigrants, to which many people want to emigrate) could join the EU in this pan-European project. And there's no reason, of course, that renewed imperialism should be restricted to European countries. Perhaps many people want to live under Japanese rule too, for example.

Have you heard that the AMA is considering banning direct-to-consumer advertising by drug companies? Thoughts?
I have never in my life had a patient mention a drug ad to me, so I’m not sure how big a deal they are. I’d say advertising to doctors is by far the bigger problem.
One of my colleagues did have a patient who said the voices were telling her to take Abilify. My colleague gave her Abilify and she got better. I don’t know if there were drug ads involved or not.
I thought about this and propose that we change gaming completely on Linux: remove the windowing system! Games should talk to kernel mode settings directly, games should interact with libinput directly. Let’s remove everything in between, we don’t need it, it only can worsen the gaming experience.
When a fullscreen game starts, it can create a “sub-session” on a new virtual terminal and become the logind- session controller for that session. This would allow the game to open the device files for rendering and for input just like a Wayland compositor does. Rendering could be done through EGL on top of DRM/GBM just like a Wayland compositor. The game would have full control over rendering, there is no desktop environment to slow it down any more. And it would have control over mode setting. Need a different resolution? No problem, just set it. On a desktop environment that’s always problematic (terrible on X11, better on Wayland). For games in windowed mode nothing should be changed, those should stay on the desktop environment.
Cities are basically reactors for converting human capital into other forms of capital.
People who dismiss the Illuminati-Oswald connection as "just a conspiracy theory" don't understand that "theory" implies wide scientific support. If it hadn't been proven, we would call it "a conspiracy hypothesis".
the definition of insanity is defining a word and expecting it to affect the underlying reality

Mama, just killed a man,
Put my foot into his side,
Said it's Sparta, now he's dead
Is this just magic?
Is this technology?
Can't tell the difference
They advanced it sufficiently
In the future, worrying about robots taking our jobs will be done by robots.

Oh, won't someone think of the poor suffering dogs and cool them down?
I have seriously considered the idea that slash leads to, not acceptance of homosexuality, but acceptance of porn by feminists. It’s really hard to read about Harry Potter taking it up the ass from Draco Malfoy and then complain that porn objectifies women.
fill the god-shaped hole in your soul with molten metal, then shatter your soul, leaving only a metal god
If there is a god-shaped hole in your heart, the obvious inference to make is that somebody shot you with a gun that fires gods
