    I agree McCarthy is misframing this as an ‘amendment’

    However I suspect Justin Amash was right the other day when he said that everything that needs to be illegal post Jan 6th is already illegal, and this is just a bill designed to make it easier to investigate Americans without due process

    Is it really wise to put these two prototypes so close together?
    What if a failure drops one on top of the other?

    Has anyone sold 2nd hand stuff via Christie’s or Sotheby’s?
    What sort of listing fee and/or sales commission do they charge?

    If you have watched the Avengers movies #2 (“Ultron”) and #3 (“Infinity War”), you have enough background to make sense of Wanda Vision.

    I would add End Game to that list as well.

    @doctor-phibes said in Thoughts on "our new normal":

    I have a team meeting every couple of days, and have a couple of people I'm getting a bit concerned about. I think if you live alone, particularly where the lockdowns are more draconian, this situation could get really miserable. I have a team member in the UK, and there's another guy in Dublin, and they are struggling.

    How are their symptoms presenting?

    High stress, anxiety, over-reacting to relatively minor things

    That must be hard to watch.

    One of my husband's coworkers got with 3-4 other single co-workers and rented a beach house together. I thought that was a great idea. Much better than being alone.

    @loki I’m not sure I understand your question...If a flag was used during an insurrection does it make a difference to who? The insurrectionists? The general public? And what kind of a difference? Does it make it better? Like “Well, they tried to stop the certification of electors but they were wearing flag t-shirts so they must not be too bad...” ? Or do you mean, “It was bad enough what they did, but to do it under the guise of patriotism and the flag is worse!”?

    If it’s the latter, I agree. Glad they are going to jail.

    Have they arrested the guys that trashed the Steinway store in Philly yet?

    Is there a little hydropower generator built into the thing? How else you’re going to power the electronics?

    And do they use discreet mechanical buttons for controls? Why would you do that when you know he users will fiddle with the controls with wet fingers?

    EDIT/addendum: found my answer, the speaker is removable and you charge it through a USB port.

    They managed to shit in their own house, the Senate. The normal people exit. Pack the Supreme Court and it will be another toxic dumping ground.

    Nice work.

    Wow, way cool.
    The USA is kinda small on that chart, isn't it?

    Hey Klaus, when you get it all nice, how about taking a picture so we can see how it looks.

    I suppose it is made in China? That's not a dig, actually it would seem rather appropriate!
