    It's sad that the non-#AU-#NZ world lacks the # cultural reference. Particularly when the # drops "the nuclear bomb you drop when you're not dropping a nuclear bomb". http://ur1.ca/qr70e http://ur1.ca/qr70f

    @strypey Yes, but optimising the software for corporate use means de-optimising for other uses. In Evan's defense, apparently there's something about # corporate law that makes an IPO practically compulsory at a certain point. Then you're on the road to ruin.

    @strypey The # showered Marshall Plan $ on post-war Europe because they knew the $ would come home. It was more an indirect domestic industry subsidy than foreign aid.

    @strypey During WWI IWW members in #, # and elsewhere were rounded up and imprisoned (or worse) in large numbers. If the NSA has Facebook's data on members & sympathisers of activist groups, why wouldn't it be used in some future process of "extreme vetting"?

    A couple of weeks ago it was pepper spray and attack dogs. Now tear gas, rubber bullets and fire hoses. Bull Connor lives. #'s benign hopey-changey # at its best. http://ur1.ca/q3h6y

    @strypey I was 99% #, 97% # The two are not alike enough for this to be a reasonable result. The questions are skewed to weird # obsessions (guns, abortion) and in some instances are entirely misconceived (fed spending is not constrained by tax "revenue").

    @kat She seems fine, but without preferential voting in the # (as we have in #) a vote can't "degrade gracefully", as we say in web development, to the least-worst candidate from the duopoly. So she's a symbolic protest vote in safe districts & not an option in marginal ones.
