Game Theory:
Untitled Goose Game takes place in a post-scarcity utopia, where all work is voluntary (nobody seems to care that much about the fact that their store has no customers, etc), and the only negative part of anyone's life is The Goose.
The reason people don't try that hard to stop The Goose is that it's one of the few truly unpredictable challenges left in their lives, and they enjoy that.

DON DRAPER: America loves the Super Bowl. America loves hot wings. America loves chips, they love salsa, they love 6-foot Italian heroes.

What does America also love? A clean colon

The Joker is just another example of how media companies enables the completely made up and and/or self inflicted torments of white men as if it there is some deep, esoteric reason for their current condition.

Meanwhile, no such deference is given to any other social group in America that has actually experienced real oppression and societal rejection.

The Joker gives white men another pat on the back and tells them their violence and resistance to reason is OK.

Because... life is hard.

probably the funniest revelation in yesterday's Some More News is that the D-list comedy central roast hacks sincerely believe "SJWs" are watching their show and are going to be super offended by it

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

Javascript is the English of programming languages

- kludged-together clusterfuck
- many decisions were made to keep compatibility with old versions despite that not really making sense
- a whole lot of arcane logic that only makes sense if you really drive into the history of it
- bad to do math in
- basically everyone needs to know it at least a little
- lingua franca because the predominant powers on Earth just so happen to use them

The reason Marxist predictions largely failed to come true can be traced to something Marx noticed but underestimated, i.e. the effect of segregating ownership of capital from the management of capital. The de jure control doesn't even match the de facto control, and in effect most owners of capital are absentee landlords from their own operations who view them in purely financial terms. This allows managers to capture rents by controlling information, passing privileges off as operating costs.
