    Yeah but the unis and surrounding support network don't really give a shit about the legal age. The university bans alcohol for anyone on university property.

    [–] More than half of Americans back impeachment if Trump pardons himself: poll GlyphGryph 1 points ago in politics

    Russian operatives literally engineered fake engine trouble on Trumps plane to prevent him from nominating Christie to the VP spot and convincing him to nominate Pence instead. Pence was deeply involved with most of the people the investigation is already going after. Trump is the sort to believe that as much as the Russian's helped him, he could absolutely have been President without them. Pence will be much more aware that he would have had no chance without Russian involvement, and they wouldn't have gone through so much work to get him into the VP slot unless they thought they could control him.

    Where has Pemce said independently that he also wants to start his own news Network?

    He didn't just say it, he tried to do it already in his home state! Eventually gave in to the massive public backlash and scrapped it, but as President following Trump he doesn't really have to care about the backlash. Why wouldn't he try to do it again when he's already done it once?

    Again, I think that's Trump you're talking about. Pence had a radio show but he built his career as an underwhelming and low achieving governor of Indiana and congresan

    His political career was built off his radio show. That's how he got elected. Yes, he comes from a more provincial background than Trump. Everyone is aware of that. I don't see how its relevant. And you repeated saying "I think that's Trump you're talking about", when my contention is that they have a lot in common, sort of... well you're kinda backing up my point here.

    Wow, I can't wait to see what you've got to demonstrate that.

    There's enough he's said and done to support it, but I have a feeling at this point that you won't accept any of my arguments and it would take a long time to build them. So instead...

    [–] TIL the Bajau peoples of South East Asia are the first known humans that are genetically adapted to dive. Their bodies are genetically modified for diving, so much so that they can dive at around 200 ft deep for as long as 13 minutes. GlyphGryph 2 points ago in todayilearned

    No society in the history of humanity has been sexually monogamous, or even anywhere close. Only social monogamy is common in the human species, and that tends to have a minimal impact on things like this. Humans are huge on extra-pair couple.

    I don't see why they would be an exception in this regard.

    Not owning land has historically been the single most common reason for prejudice against an ethnic group, and barring a group from owning land the single best way to make them hated.

    There's a reason America only let people who owned land vote for a long time. It's because those who don't own land are considered to be trash.

    I... I don't think you understand who Pence is, at all. He's not just a crazy far right Republican. I wish he was.

    What he is is, more indebted to Russia than Trump, and more committed to destroying our government. One of his big dreams is to start a state run new station that will let him show people the truth instead of them having to listen to the lying media. He built his career on being a right-wing celebrity figure, as a radio and television show host. He is exactly the sort of person who would love to replacement our democracy with an autocracy, and he will do nothing to "run our government safely".

    There are only three major differences between the two - one, Pence is more in control of his emotions. He'll be less prone to childish tantrums and less prone to letting things slip out. Two, he might have some problems keeping the cultists in line as a result, since they like that about Trump. Three, he's even more insulated against impeachment than Trump.

    He might not be as good at demagoguery as Trump, but... I'm not sure it matters at this point. He seems even more like the time to actively meddle in or just plain shut down elections.

    All the evidence we've seen so far indicates Pence is in just as deep as Trump. If Trump is impeached, I can't help but imagine Pence would follow in short order (if there's a shred of sanity in the congress that does it)

    Pence is not just regular run of the mill bad. He is a very exceptional kind of bad.

    [–] Reddit, what is the worst thing you've ever done? GlyphGryph 3 points ago in AskReddit

    After he killed the iguana he actually broke back out of the iguana cage and returned to his own so he could store some body parts in his nest. Bonkers indeed.

    It was a juvenile, just under a year old at the time. It was in fact a good deal larger than the hamster even still.

    But iguanas are not violent, and aren't particularly well equipped to deal with a vicious, committed attack by an aggressive mammal. The hamster was unharmed as far as I could tell, but he'd basically burrowed through the iguana before tearing it to pieces. It was crazy. ;_;

    Uh... pretty sure the actual raped folks are also real victims

    A boss wanting you to recognize that they don't have all the answers does not make them shitty.

    I mean... a lot of the snow on mountains in my areas is artificial snow. They aren't tall enough to reliably accumulate the real thing, but people want their snow!

    I was under the impression light polllution meant this isn't true for most people. Even the ones it is true can't exactly identify it as for-sure a planet.

    I mean you're still asking the question in this case. You're just asking strangers on the internet.

    You can be biased in favour of your family in a situation, because you value them and your obligations to them.

    But you aren't be prejudiced in this situation - you're not assigning any potentially inaccurate negative qualities to anyone based solely on how they've been labeled.

    [–] What is the dumbest question someone legitimately asked you? GlyphGryph 55 points ago in AskReddit

    I think one thing that's important to recognize here is that you should ask questions to gather information, yes - but you should ask them of the right people (which might well not be your boss), and not presume the answer to be of a certain type.

    And that it has its limits, especially for skilled jobs, where part of why you're there is to find the answers without wasting anyone else's time too badly.

    [–] Italy's far-right government announces 'census' and deportations of Roma traveller population GlyphGryph -2 points ago in worldnews

    It may also be that the majority of roma don't live where you live and thus your local region has a much different balance of settled/integrated to nomadic/outsiders
