I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn!

On this day 345 years ago, November 2, 1675, Feodosia Morozova died in jail. And we should care about why, because it parallels political conflicts that are relevant today. ansuz.sooke.bc.ca/entry/364

I always thought that "to fuck off" was intransitive and meant "to go away," as in "If you don't like corn dogs, you should fuck off." But in the last few years I've started hearing people use it in a transitive way apparently meaning "to make angry," where I would rather use "to piss off," as in "This new Web site design really fucks me off." Is this new, or is it just some kind of regional dialect I haven't previously encountered?

DMCA takedown notices are tactical, not strategic. Each one is issued without much research or planning as to its consequences. Any individual takedown notice doesn't reflect a big plan to "send a message" or do anything else; the strategic plan is to issue takedown notices *in general*, not specific ones at chosen targets. If one particular takedown notice ends up picking a much bigger fight than is usual, that comes as a surprise to the legal department who issued it.

It's about Magic the Gathering, but man. It really took me a minute.

Is it just me, or has YouTube started recommending more crap in the last few days?

J. Wray Jamaica Gold rum. Not recommended. Kind of harsh and solvent-y taste. It has the classic Jamaican banana funk on the aftertaste, and that's probably its best feature, but I enjoyed the same distillery's "White Overproof" product a lot more.

What if our response to homelessness was to have activist marches against the toxic idea that housing is a right; to lecture homeless persons on how evil they are for feeling entitled to housing; campaign for their exclusion from job opportunities, education, and any other path that might allow them to gain access to housing under their own power; and (for the most compassionate of us) try to help them understand that not having shelter, is okay and doesn't make them bad people?
