    I started watching Westworld yesterday after coming across this review and finished Season 1 today. I wasn’t paying much attention though, watched it while playing World of Tanks. Spoilers ahead..

    Yesterday I washed a stir fry pan(?) that I had left unattended for 4+ years,, used mostly to drip oil from the panhandle.. thingy after making eggs.

    There was almost half a centimeter of gooey semi solid oil resin covering the entire base. I used four sponges before they became sticky, my hands became sticky, put boiling water in it for half an hour and after noticing that the ceramic cover may have peeled off, I started thinking maybe should have just gotten a new one..

    this whole “it’s because of [behavior x] like yours that Trump won” rhetoric actually goes back a little. It follows a pattern of other similar conservative rhetoric. The most recent in my memory happened mid-campaign cycle, maybe early October? It went like this:

    A: Well this recent incident is very shameful because it’s not a democratic procedure.. blabla..
    B: America is not a Democracy!
    A: What?
    B: America is not a Democracy, dumbass. It’s a republic.

    The funny thing is that stating that the U.S. is a representative republic doesn’t refute the original argument being made. It does go just a tiny bit further into detail about government types and is a splashy way of appearing to break your opponent’s argument, (because “the U.S. state is a democracy” is easy to sell rhetoric) when in reality there’s no substance beyond the initial shock factor.

    I think there’s some similitude – maybe a simplified version? To the now classic conservative framework of first refuting the point by choosing words that anger progressives so much that leave them stupefied, but that at the same time energize the base, then moving to frame the issue as originally planned.

    every time a scheduled event is near:

    • Computer Windows 10 pops up a reminder (via Windows Calendar)
    • If there is a open tab somewhere in one of the 9 desks that has Google Calendar open, it puts itself on the front and pops up the notice. When in this status, no other chrome window becomes clickable.
    • phone beeps

    Ideally the phone would know that I am nearby, make the beeping noise, and alert the desktop applications to not show further alerts.
