    I suppose it’s all a matter of opinion, and I reserve the right to mine as well, so here it is.

    If you think [...] a reporter asking a legitimate question of a person running for public office “deserved” to get punched in the face for it, then frankly, so do you.

    Hear, hear.

    [...] if you think a Nazi doesn’t deserve it but a journalist asking questions does … it’s time to stop and consider the troubling places to which your political allegiances have led you.

    Indeed.

    I do not see how either of those things is empirical evidence of ESP...

    First experiment tests random occurrences under hypothesis that if you preemptively assign meaning to an outcome and that outcome occurs then that proves that the meaning is true. It's like flipping a dice on the hypothesis that "we tell a bunch of dice that 6 wins, flip each of them 50,000 times and if 6 comes up higher than chance then an individual die is sentient and trying to flip itself to win"

    The second experiment tests how well an individual's short term memory works... I mean... wut?

    Strategic depth and resolve is always more important than any commander. We saw such depth and resilience in Tsarist Russia in 1812, in France and Britain in the First World War, in the Soviet Union and the United States during the Second World War, but not in Carthage or overstretched Nazi Germany or overreaching Imperial Japan. The ability to absorb initial defeats and fight on surpassed any decision made or battle fought by Hannibal or Scipio, Lee or Grant, Manstein or Montgomery.

    "It's not about how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. "

    Oh-kaaaay. Good talk. Glad you feel strongly about... well whatever it is that your position is.

    It must be really tough atacking a viewpoint without making your own clear.

    And therefore is there anything any one single person could have done morally better given Truman's, Obama's or Washington's circumstances? I argue no.

    By not dropping the bomb an invasion of Japan would have taken countless more lives.

    By not droning Yemen Middle East outright war would taken countless more lives.

    It is a trade off of shitty end game scenarios and any sensible person calculates the least shitty one and takes responsibility for the consequences.

    How does one add all that up and conclude Obama was "bad" is beyond my comprehension. At most you might conclude that the presidency is "bad". That is not something I agree with but at least it's a line of thinking I can follow. But, regardless, it is a separate argument and certainly not what the article is arguing. The article is saying "we need to elect Jesus, anything less is fascism". That's profoundly immature and unimaginative.

    All good questions. Hardly any straightforward answers, wouldn't you say?

    Could you ask for a more perfect bookend to Obama’s blood-soaked neocon abortion of a presidency

    Oh get off your high horse, wouldya? Could you ask for a more idealistic naiveté about how the world works?

    If you think Obama was a "blood-soaked necon" boy, do I have some bad news for you about presidents past and present.

    Remember "We Like Ike" Eisenhower? Korean War.

    How about FDR aka Saint Roosevelt of Our Church of The New Deal? Developed the A-bomb.

    How about Truman The Trustworthy? He dropped 2 of them.

    Going all the way back to Gen. Washington (The Perfect) who quelled the Whiskey Rebellion by riding at the head of an army with 13,000 militiamen. Over enforcing a tax. Nobody died because the insurgents all went home before the arrival of the army but had they not they would have probably been forced to fight and (given their numbers) died.

    There is simply no way to explain damned if you do/damned if you don't choices POTUS has to confront to anybody still living cushioned Berkley sophomore life. Out in the world of geopolitics on 7 billion people scale, decisions lead to deaths. Always. The only question is how many and for how long.

    Let me see if I'm understanding this: Google just accused Uber of doing business? Well color me outraged.

    Those profiteering snakes. Stealing Google's top secret idea for monopolizing a market... that everyone and their uncle knows about. The rest is this Lewandowski guy taking his knowledge to the highest bidder.

    I'm sorry but my heart does not bleed for Google. They conspired with Apple and Microsoft to suppress engineer salaries for decades with their no-poaching gentlemen's agreement. Now they are all up in arms because there is no honor among thieves?

    Get off your high horse, Google. If he was that important to you why didn't you approach this Lewandowski guy with a quarter of a billion offer? He might have stayed with you. But you didn't so now it's a federal case? Boo-hoo. Too bad, so sad. You're lucky Uber is down so you can kick them but this is not punching up in anyone's book

    This is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1524 genres by Spotify. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.

    Yes, he also sells supplements he recommends. The last 20 or so minutes of his infomercial is a string of claims about how supplies are running low, and it’s important that you act immediately

    Oh no... it's Andrew Wakefield's anti-vaccine BS all over again. Semi-qualified leach does just enough "research" to demonstrate fear mongering and plausible deniability then profits in the aftermath of hysteria by selling "alternative" remedies (which, in all likelihood, is what motivated the "research" to being with)

    It's downright sociopathy and this type of behavior needs to be criminalized. Kicking these for-profit-misinformation quacks out of medical practice is too lenient. The mass effect spread is far too deadly to society as a whole to be ignored. They need to be prosecuted and serve jail-time as examples to others thinking about fueling their youtube infomercial, basement-made product sales with fear mongering.
