Yes Climate change will contribute to more rainfall, but that really has nothing to do with why this dam collapsed. This collapsed because it was built in 1924 and not updated or maintained to deal with the added water. This entire country is filled with poorly or non-maintained dams, there is a documentary on netflix Read more

OK, I’ll be that guy:

CD Keys is a dodgy reseller whose operations violate Steam ToS. If you buy your keys through them you are risking having your purchase locked, you are shorting the developers the money they would make off of an in-region purchase, and Gaben STILL gets a cut of what you did pay.

Golly Wenis, it doesn’t look like you’re taking this pandemic seriously at all.

As a Buffalonian, I feel an unearned entitlement about chicken wings, and I say that if you put ranch on wings instead of bleu cheese, you’d better be eating some boneless Applebees nonsense, which taste fine but are a disgrace to the word “wing”. I’m exaggerating how strongly I feel about this, but the sentiment is Read more

The banality of evil. I think the HBO movie Conspiracy did a good job of showing that. It is basically 90 minutes of Nazis debating the details of what is a jew in the law exactly and based on how jewish you are, what should be done with you. What if you are half New and half Ayran? 1/4, 1/8, 1/16? That sort of thing. Read more

A lot of movies (JoJo Rabbit got this quite a bit) get criticized for “humanizing” nazis, but that’s the thing: they were humans! The point is we might all be capable of great evil, and we have to do the work to be good people, every day. A movie I really love is The Reader with Kate Winslet (in fact, the actress who Read more
