  3. The attraction of the social sciences is that it's relevant to people's lives, has little in the way of jargon or theory (in the scientific sense), but is incredibly challenging (in several senses of the word). # fixes all these deficiencies.

  4. Can only conclude that # is the ultimate in emperor's new clothes. Anything you want to say can be Foucauldian, since nobody is sure what, if anything, Foucault meant by all his hand-waving. #

  5. Probably the only useful contribution to society I make is that I read # so # doesn't have to, and send him the interesting bits. http://boingboing.net/2015/05/19/how-free-software-activist-ric.html

  6. Every # program name would be an excellent name for a psychedelic/prog-rock band. IIRC Irritant Horn used to play with Zappa. http://boingboing.net/2015/05/21/nsa-wanted-to-hack-the-android.html

  7. Made the mistake of # to a recording of the # playing live. Each song is longer than a # talk. I'm not taking the right drugs for this.

  8. # police killed more people in March (111) than the entire # police have killed since 1900 http://www.uncommonthought.com/mtblog/archives/2015/05/03/american-police-1.php

  9. Major effect of # so far this year: I'm perpetually a fortnight behind on my # feeds. Still no smarter.

  10. @cdbragg That would be a whole different kettle of worms. Electric uke solos are so tragically under-used in pop music.

  11. The Falling Joys, Shelter. I love the Bragg-esque riff in this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4gBVOj_dKU&html5=1

  12. "Rental stress" is defined as a tenant "forced to spend 30 per cent or more of their income on housing". Wow. For maybe 6 months in my entire adult life I have _not_ had rental stress. http://ur1.ca/mm5uk

  13. Congrats to Phillip Adams for getting through an entire interview with somebody named James Brown without once asking if he felt good. A standard of professionalism to which I could never aspire. #

  14. When trying to remember the names of either Milton Friedman or John Maynard Keynes, my addled brain locks onto Milton Keynes and refuses to go any further.

  15. You know that little bit of lateral jerking and swaying you do on a train, like a Gerry Anderson marionette being held as still as possible? And the smell of stitched leather on the sunny side of the carriage? God, I miss that.

  16. I suffer from impostor syndrome even when I'm not claiming to be anything.

  17. Always happens after leaving the house for longer than it takes to go to the corner shop and back. I'm over-stimulated and not at all interested in going up the little wooden hill to Bedforshire.

  18. "We're actually really good at securing little pieces of paper. It's called 'money', and we keep it in our wallet, and we almost never lose it." # Bruce Schneier http://www.scienceforthepeople.ca/episodes/technocreep

  19. After a year and a half of #, I've physically met two of my lecturers. What if the others are all Andy Serkis in a one-piece suit covered in dots? Man, he's good.

  20. Annoying me tonight: People who don't know the difference between "web browser" and "search engine" writing on technology.
