Who else plays Minecraft?

craggyisland

I like to putter around on Minecraft now and then, and I’ve been using a free (well, they do ask for small donations once a year) public server called Sitosis. Did you see me write free right there? That’s what makes it shocking that it is woefully underpopulated right now, so they’re open to new …

She shouldn’t have gotten her face in the way of his fist

But what about addressing women on how they can help prevent the obvious wrong done upon them?

Some football player named Ray Rice got in a fight with his fiancée, and knocked her out cold in an elevator — there is surveillance of him dragging her unconscious body out. You would think, maybe, that a professional athlete would have at some time learned that he’s very strong, and that a little caution …

Sharp lines

Greta asks where you’d draw the line. Is there any line that someone could cross that would make you unwilling to support them or work with them? Is there any line that someone could cross that would make you not link to their videos, not share their blog posts, not upvote them, not post admiring …

So is that the new plan, Israel?

I’m now even more disgusted. Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University made a statement about the ‘realities’ of their conflict. “You have to understand the culture in which we live,” said Kedar. “The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders.” When presenter Yossi Hadar asked …

We need to ban Minnesotans

Clearly, residents of this state are the problem. Look what this wretched Minnesotan did. A Minnesota man who admitted shooting a 17-year-old girl multiple times because she asked him to stop trespassing on his riding lawnmower has been charged with attempted first-degree murder. According to a criminal complaint obtained by The Associated Press, 40-year-old Chad …

I like this hypothesis

nceffects

But we have to be clear that it is only a hypothesis at this point. I was reading about domestication syndrome (DS) — selecting animals for domestication has a whole collection of secondary traits that come along for the ride, in addition to tameness. We are selecting for animals that tolerate the presence of humans, …

Go ahead, let me plan your wedding

It’ll be cheap, there won’t be much ceremony, and I’ll yell at you to get over yourselves. Matthew Yglesias cites me…for good advice on wedding planning, which is not quite what I would have expected. But that’s OK, the Mediocrity Principle applies to everything.

He will devour Mary Worth and Rex Morgan, MD last

brideofcthulhu

It’s all over the news that Archie Comics is killing off Archie (sounds like a desperate bid to draw attention to a line that has been boring and moribund for decades). But why aren’t these same media outlets talking about the fate of another major character, Sabrina the Teenage Witch? It’s a bit dark. She …

Friday Cephalopod: Not a bird with a curved beak, or a curvy flower

Ilan Lubitz

But still curvy.

Is Ted Nugent still a darling of the Republican party?

I knew Ted Nugent was a nasty piece of work, but this…can he possibly be a bit more blatantly racist? He’s had a couple of shows cancelled at Indian casinos — first by the Coeur d’Alene tribe in Idaho, and most recently by the Puyallups in Washington — and I guess it made Nugent a …
