US primaries 

Wow the Iowa caucuses are wild. Explain them to any non-USian and they'll think you're full of shit!

You all get together in church basements and community halls and stand in groups based on who you support, and take head counts and argue amongst each other about what groups people should move to if their candidate isn't "valid" (popular) enough?

Basically add whiskey and a shillelagh or two and you'd have 19th century colonial era elections in Canada!

@msh I love how they added this app (that doesn't work), not to actually tally the votes and not have to deal with headcounts, but just to report those headcounts to the DNC Iowa headquarters.

Seems like a phone call could have sufficed.

@TheGibson

that was part of the fuck-up: had precinct heads on extended hold apparently because the app was supposed to handle it so they underprovisioned?
