Beware detached, privileged ppl that fancy themselves intellectuals, who talk at length about things they'll never understand. I've heard so many repugnant ideas expressed in erudite, civil tones.

Alt-Right White Wolf Article: Update
You may have seen the article going around from "Dog With Dice" about how the latest version of White Wolf's "Vampire: The Masquerade" was specifically written for and marketed to the alt-right.

I was worried Prolog might not be a good fit for this sort of bit-munging thing, but it is actually working very well.
Love (SWI-)Prolog; it has definitely become my current favourite programming language (sorry Clojure).
For the past few years, we've been building a new kind of chat program. We really like using it at my little startup-thing, and we think others could benefit from it, but it's a little hard to explain what about it we like so much; here's my longer-form attempt: http://occasionallycogent.com/2018/03/28/why_and_what_braid.html
I make computer things in Toronto, mostly in Clojure. I powerlifting, strongman, and Highland Games How are you?
