continental divide



March 12th, 2008

excerpted from Barack-mail

continental divide
When we won Iowa, the Clinton campaign said it's not the number of states you win, it's "a contest for delegates."

When we won a significant lead in delegates, they said it's really about which states you win.

When we won South Carolina, they discounted the votes of African-Americans.

When we won predominantly white, rural states like Idaho, Utah, and Nebraska, they said those didn't count because they won't be competitive in the general election.

When we won in Washington State, Wisconsin, and Missouri -- general election battlegrounds where polls show Barack is a stronger candidate against John McCain -- the Clinton campaign attacked those voters as "latte-sipping" elitists.

I laughed out loud reading this... But it's sad, and true, and.... working?

eegrek apostrophe

continental divide
i would like a plausible explanation for why the variation ya'll seems to be becoming more common rather than less. having hopefully shed any southern accent i used to have by now, it still bothers me. it's not optional like alot or tonite, it's serious business, that apostrophe. wh'os with me?

continental divide
i've always said that the amount of alcohol it takes for me to pass out is significantly less than the amount where i do really stupid things. i just realized this is no longer true.

haircut race

continental divide
it breaks my heart every time my office mate puts his headphones on like 5 seconds after i do. as if he's saying "oh we can't be friends? fine."

  1. Does cheap wine turn your teeth more purple than good wine?

  2. Is quantum decoherence a) related to conscious observation or b) simply the result of being in a thermodynamically irreversible system?

  3. If a), is it possible that the converse is also/rather true, that consciousness arises from quantum uncertainty, that a quantum computer would be inherently "conscious"?

  4. This Kurzweil book scares me. Either he's a lunatic or we're kind of pooched

  5. That wasn't a question

  6. Does any modern work of fiction have a villain who is not actually an alter ego of the protagonist?

  7. Why does John Nash get a Nobel Prize 44 years after he wrote his dissertation, but that crazy Russian guy who refused the Fields medal would have gotten it the year he did his work?

  8. Is it related to the movement for speed-canonization of JP II and Mother Theresa?

  9. If so, is this related to McDonald's, email, and webisodes?

  10. Speaking of game theory, why aren't there denominators in Pascal's wager? There should be a different denominator if we're playing for all eternity or if we're playing for 70ish years

  11. Why do I constantly have so much desire to create something and so little inspiration for it?

  12. If Jeff Buckley were still alive, what would he be doing? One man with guitar à la Nick Drake? Large-scale concept albums? Political Activism? Only just recently gaining notoriety?

  13. If you accept meaninglessness as dogma, are you fooling yourself by alleging that there are still things worth experiencing and/or enjoying?

  14. Are there any new episodes of Lost that were filmed before the writers' strike?
