I enjoy it when folks talk to me and comment on my stuff- if you follow me, please feel free to do so at any time- it would make me happy! I enjoy it!

Capitalism has done an amazing job of convincing us that "freedom and equality" is both parents working full time to pay for childcare and house-care instead of each parent working half time and splitting the other work equitably.

Now it looks like NJPW is doing a US expansion on a fulltime basis. Things getting very interesting.

Had a very boring weekend when I didn't want a boring weekend. Ugh.

Ugh, just saw Ron Washington got the Padres job. Didn't want to lose him.

I think we all feel something is rotten in the foundation of our economic system. I have no solution but lately I've started formulating the problem like this:

The stuff that you can still make money doing, and the stuff that the world actually needs doing for humans to thrive, seem to overlap less and less every year.

Picture a venn diagram with like "adtech" and "high frequency trading" in one circle, "investigative journalism" and "planting trees" in the other, drifting inexorably apart

Capitalism: Communism would mean the death of ownership! Say goodbye to having any personal goods of your very own.

Also Capitalism: Sure, you have a right to what you own, but we never actually *sold* you a product, we merely provided a service/product on loan for which your payment has currently run out. *said about literally everything*

Leave it to the London NFL game for an attempt at a fair catch kick FG.

Had the craziest set ever at a fighting game tournament today.

I can't stand any of the remaining baseball teams. The Astros aren't too bad, but I despise Nats/Yanks/Cards so much.

Never trust a pitcher who got sent down to AAA in an elimination game.

Ok, a conversation somewhere else made me wonder how would you make overalls work on a centaur?

Just realized Cards and Nats might have screwed AEW. TNT is going to have to host one of the Game 5's on Wednesday.

Those opposing free speech never seem understand the consequences of doing so.

You are empowering the government to throw you in jail if you openly disagree with them.

There isn't much stopping political protestors from being jailed BUT free speech laws.

That's REGARDLESS of your political alignment.

When it comes to social issues I swing libertarian the government should NOT have the right to lock you up for criticizing it or vocally disagreeing with its values.

Because you don't wanna be on the losing side when a radical theocracy takes power.

One thing I noticed today: DOA and Soul Calibur get a lot of women entering the games, relative to other games in the genre. Also friendlier communities.

Seeing Smackdown last night reminded me why I don't like or watch WWE anymore. Gave them another chance and outside of better camera work they totally blew it.

Well, the Gwinnett Strippers doing a better job than the Braves today.
