    U.S. Politics: Phantom of the Emergency

    Here is a good twitter thread about the rules of the reports from the SC and if they can be made public or not.

    Uh Oh for Paleo

    It would be hilarious if the researchers found evidence of them eating bugs, worms, snakes and grubs. Hey, protein is protein.

    Uh Oh for Paleo

    Interesting article about what really made up the Paleo diet as eaten by Neanderthals. From here: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/03/neanderthal-dental-plaque-shows-what-a-paleo-diet-really-looks-like/518949/?fbclid=IwAR3UBWEq72cNUOkaHtXq0doI9-kzoQWGUjjdZnYSJGtK0cO3PzW9h6pNz30

    Happy Hogswatch, other seasonal greetings, and where to post them

    I was told this by a co-worker who was complaining about it. Myself hasn't set foot in a Walmart in years. As for condoms in bulk, well, no comment.

    Haven't read Card, so don't quite get the nuance.

    Duologies, what would you reccomend?

    Well, first books can be, um, interesting. I read THE WASP FACTORY and WALKING ON GLASS, Iain Banks first two books and didn't die, maybe I'll take a look.

    Duologies, what would you reccomend?

    I read those, thought they were OK. Do want to check others of hers sometime. edt; if I recall, I liked the first book best and was disappointed the other books didn't follow those characters, as I was invested in them and wanted more of their story. So it goes.

    A beer there was, a beer a beer! All golden and frosty and covered with foam. A lovely beer to call my own. Yay New's Years!

    Apparently Walmart put its day of hearts crap out before X-mas was even over. Crass merchandising for our materialistic over-saturated culture. Party on!

    I've read the GGK duo and liked his standalones better, especially THE LIONS of AL-RASSAN. I'll start the Gilman two this week, looking forward to them.

    Duologies, what would you reccomend?

    Rothfus, good snarky answer, I've read them and they will always be a twosome to me. Would argue about Dune tho, have read the three books and prefer to think of Dune as a standalone.

    I have a big thick paperback that has those two stories and long epilogue all bound together. Perhaps I should dig it out, no?
