    I'm just waiting for someone to link this guy to GamerGate.



    There's nothing in the tweet to suggest that it wasn't a legitimate threat -- other than the general implausibility of announcing...

    It's interesting that you bring up your experience of killing with Lego soliders. I've had the same psychiatrist since I was eight years old or so, and a few years back he had occasion to mention our...

    We are the sum of our experiences -- all our experiences. I've been shaped by books and films as surely as by any 'real' experience, much as I was undoubtedly shaped by playing with Lego and watching...

    The line isn't authoritative. It merely captures a point and contains an implicit argument that I find compelling. It's a touchstone.

    I agree with the sentiment. I usually think of it in terms of Kurt Vonnegut's line: "We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be."

    The biggest insult is ignoring it. Unfortunately, most of us have already failed that hurdle and given the project far more attention than it deserves. I'm glad that RPS hasn't posted about it,...

    Man, those glasses are awful. Maybe that's why the video was removed.

    Clearly this interview was objectionable on several fronts, in terms of:

    2. How they vetted the subjects (i.e. they didn't)
    3. How they presented...

    In Australia's case, we committed ourselves back to Iraq before there was anything to commit to. Like, before the US had even started trying to corral its allies. We were just, like, "hell yeah,...
