Some of the things you say I don't think are accurate ways of expressing things, others I think are, but at this point, I feel like you are having me read through your abstract essay and strike through all of your typos.

Hey, I have some questions about transgender theory, and since you seem to have taken up its banner, I hope you don't mind me inserting myself here and putting them to you: I was assigned male at birth, presumably on the strength of my phenotypical characteristics.

    Seems like Sweden's ongoing results have become politicized. If Sweden's results turn out to be not too much worse than the average, then I guess it calls into question some of other countries' continuing reactions (including my own, and which I still support)? If Sweden blows up, then we can all feel better about the more restrictive choices we've made and their necessity. Still and all, I guess...

    I find it strange to look back on all of this, to try to understand the situation with a bit of perspective. So far as I know, this whole situation is down to one person a few months ago in China, doing what? Eating bat soup or something equally trivial? And the end result will be thousands upon thousands dead, economies crushed (with all of the job loss, foreclosure, depression, etc., that...

    I've been hearing about the problem of not having enough ventilators for a while, now. That... seems like a thing to address? I mean, I don't know the business of producing ventilators. Perhaps they are exclusively handcrafted by Nepalese monks from adolescent unicorn's horns. Perhaps. But in the lead-up to the crushing spikes we're all anticipating (especially since folks are still crowding...

    Your Top 10 Movies of the Decade

    in Movies Discussion on 07 February 2020

    Interesting exercise. Teaches me that, man, I really didn't care for many movies over this last decade. Still haven't seen some of the current Best Picture noms, like Knives Out, so my list might change over time and as I see more. Also interesting to see Whiplash on so many lists (and so high on my own); I think maybe that one will last... 2010 - Toy Story 32011 - Kumare2012 - The Avengers2013...
