    How about some Versailles? (three minutes in for some nice guitar-work)

    It would be a shame were the Secret Service to use excessive force.

    I'd rather they catch ghost-Egon.

    I also started on Lovecraft recently. First story I read was The Rats In The Walls; I really liked it (unfortunately-named cat aside).

    The closest you'll get to Ghostbusters 3 is the 2009 video game (has it already been ten years?)
  7. Well starting with just the tweet, "who defended Jeffrey Epstein" is false. He did no such thing. The entire thing was about his late colleague Marvin Minsky, who's name showed up in a deposition by one of the Epstein accusers saying that Epstein directed her to have sex with Minsky (which, by the way, the deposition never says they did, and a witness has stated that Minsky turned her down). What Stallman had said was in defense of Minsky, saying that the most likely scenario was that she probably appeared to Minsky as entirely willing, as Epstein, the coercer, would most likely have directed her to act in such a manner. The actual quote with some context, bolded is the part they decided to use in the Tech Crunch article. "We can imagine many scenarios, but the most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him as entirely willing. Assuming she was being coerced by Epstein, he would have had every reason to tell her to conceal that from most of his associates." The original article by Vice was even worse: Early in the thread, Stallman insists that the “most plausible scenario” is that Epstein’s underage victims were “entirely willing” while being trafficked. Stallman goes on to argue about the definition of “sexual assault,” “rape,” and whether they apply to Minsky and Giuffre’s deposition statement that she was forced to have sex with him. They portray Stallman as defending Epstein and that the victims were willing, but he is in fact stating that Epstein probably directed the victims to appear willing.
  8. I think he said that his view had changed on that some years ago when conversing with people who'd explained the psychological impact of it. He's kind of a philosophical guy (considering he most known for his philosophy of free software) and a bit disconnected with people, so it doesn't surprise me that he'd be someone to ask the kind of questions that others find completely taboo and not even open to discussion.
  9. Turns out Richard Stallman did not, in fact, defend Epstein. He actually called Epstein a serial-rapist. It was a libelous hit-piece taking what he actually said out of context and misrepresenting his position. Order has been restored to my world.
  10. I haven't seen it, but I don't believe its actually supporting the "theory". The whole thing is leading up to the experiment that will "prove" flat earth only for it to not work out as they expected followed by them being confused, and then rationalizing why it didn't work.

    That Protas kid is looking like a bit of a steal in the third round. Its a shame he'll be stuck in the minors at his size.

    It has happened, but she was drunk and thought she was groping the tall Asian next to me.
