I shudder to think...what?

(I've heard the idea that Harry is actually in a sanitorium suffering from PTSD, and how the story and his place in it matches the kind of delusions you'd expect. It was scarily convincing...)

Sort of similar, actually, except it was early-onset schizophrenia, with him initially struggling against it and eventually giving in and embracing his delusions and hallucinations.  Stefan seems to be convinced that magic is always an allegory for insanity.  Given the kind of life he had before he turned eleven, Harry should have PTSD at the least, or probably more likely, DID.

This American Life was one of the programs that got fooled by that guy who wrote that bogus report about how bad working conditions at Foxcon were, including the completely bogus claim of having spoken to English-speaking employees there (who were unlikely to exist, given how many better options anyone in China who speaks good English has) and pretending that he needed to protect his (Chinese government supplied) translator from government reprisals (despite the fact who she was would obviously be known to her employers, the Chinese government).  They did, eventually, run a Mea Culpa story explaining how stupid they'd been, but they don't seem to have learned anything.

Digitally signed malware doesn't even need to have certificates purchased from the darkweb.  Microsoft will happily sell you signing certificates.  They might revoke them later if they think you've done something they don't like, but they tend to not look for things like malware as a reason to revoke.  It's pretty clear that the main thing they want to prevent with that is defeating DRM, and has been since it came in just over a decade ago.

Apparently, there are entities in the Upside-Down who are taking resources when the gate is open.

Not intelligent ones, at least so far. They're just beasts. One of the characters described it like a virus, hijacking Will's intelligence because it had none of its own.

Remember, this is one of Stefan's analyses, so he's probably completely rewritten the story to conform to his own narrative.  Do you know what he decided Harry Potter was about?

LOLWUT??? Who are the immigrants supposed to be? There aren't any people in the Upside-Down!

This Week's Quote: "Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anybody has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn’t let him do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians." —L. Neil Smith

Well, Stefan has gone and done one of his weird analyses of entertainment and decided Stranger Things is an allegory about uncontrolled immigration in the presence of a welfare state.

Does this actually mean anything beyond making a few hard-code statists no longer able to watch it because they won't be able to shake the idea that it contradicts their core theology?

I heard an interview with one of the survivors, who reported that the shooter specifically targeted anyone who cried or called for help.  He also said that the survivors all played dead among end beneath the pews, and that when the shooter was walking out the daughter of the Pastor (the Pastor was not present at the time, being busy with some other task at the time) started calling for help, and the shooter went back and murdered her.

I don't think the Bolivar is quite up to Weimar Republic levels of inflation YET (the usual examples are people being paid twice a day and spending it right away because by the end of the day it would be worthless, and a guy being sent his life savings when the bank closed his account due to the balance being too low at 54,000 marks, in a million-mark note, the smallest note in circulation, in an envelope with 4 million marks postage, and it didn't even buy him a cup of coffee at the cafe).

To adapt some other verbiage, "Scientists give up money, fame, power, and the love of beautiful women for their science, through which they hope to gain money, fame, power, and the love of beautiful women."

In practical terms, neither Senators nor Representatives can be impeached.  Unlike any other Federal officeholder, both Houses have the authority to discipline their own members, up to and including expulsion from their seat.  As Impeachment involves both Houses, it will always be easier and faster to directly expel the member.

Another shooting another article complaining how "too easy" it is to acquire a gun:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/16/health/getting-gun-ease-trnd/index.html

So many problems, the biggest one overall is that overlooks cost.

I wish it were this easy.

As it is, I can't get a "fire-ready" Brown Bess: it's too bloody expensive! ($650)
