At some point in upcoming months, I'm going to give this lecture series again, with the same curriculum & the same slide set, but much better sorted out. Unfortunately I've been revising my curriculum & slides, while simultaneously trying to deal with a bunch of other stuff.

Anybody who thinks there is the slightest benefit in attempting to hold a serious discussion on the questions of the day with this guy is welcome to it. I'll save myself the frustration.

Trump's new instance 

@swaggboi

“To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.” ― Thomas Paine

@Ricardus

It does seem like, at some point, you just have to say "no" to the capitalistic imperative of market segmentation.

I mean, I can see a rationale for this. You set up the Patreon as a gage to show you whether this activity generates enough genuine interest to justify your time & effort in continuing to do it, so then you want to do something extra for the people who subscribed. But I think that's a mistaken impulse. Let it be about supporting the public content.

@senator

I have a card with a pure gold applique in the form of a 100 milligram "ingot", which came out of the packaging of a Japanese animation LaserDisc. So far as I can tell, its only purpose is to prove that such a strange thing ever existed.

@matera

Ah, that's an example of the "flood-resistant mirror-drilling machine" problem.

@art

As someone who has a decent TV receiving antenna pointed toward a big cluster of transmitting antennas, I get some huge number of channels on my ATSC TV. Not 160 I don't think, but it's high. I may have to get one of these HDHomerun things, if I can find one reasonably cheap, just to play around with it.

So thanks! I don't normally prefer to assimilate information by video, but this one was reasonably concise.
