v6.2.1 - moving along, a point increase at a time

MBA-speak, with John Oliver

Seems like a good week starts with John Olive and Last Week Tonight.  I've queued up the video to the part that I found most funny (Dumbo Heights!!!), but the rest of the video is definitely worth a watch.

Presidential Spam

Somehow I got on the White House's mailing list (must have been some petition I signed at some point), and now I get spam like this.  I guess the White House is seriously pushing their new reality show "Presidential", but it faces steep prime-time competition from ABC, NBC, CBS, CW, and El Rey. I think Sharnado probably does better than this new reality show ;-)

Found this past week on the web.  Sociopolitical commentary on the current state of world politics (well, at least North American and European politics). Wondering where this world is going to.

Brexit a reality?

It amazes me that voters regret their vote on this.  I could say something snarky about an informed voter populace, but I won't.  All I can do is shake my head at them...Instead, I will share a meme that made me laugh...As a side note, I do wonder if there will be any "takebacksies" with this thing, since the vote to exit the EU isn't something that goes into effect right away.

Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan

Apparently the Turkish President,  Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has never heard of the Streissand Effect . From the New York Times:If President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey had hoped that summoning the German ambassador would get a video poking fun at him by a German satire program removed from the Internet, he was wrong. Instead, the move had any number of consequences, including provoking

It's super Tuesday! Go Vote!

I can't believe it's here!  Super Tuesday!  For those of you abroad, this is when a lot of states hold their primary elections (instead of having an election here and an election there in scattered form). This is usually when front-runner nominees show up.I can't believe that Trump is projected to win Massachusetts (I mean...seriously people!) Good thing I am independent and I can vote in

Voter Registration...

Last week on "last week tonight with John Oliver" the main investigative segment of the satirical news show was on voter ID laws. For those of you abroad, in the US you don't have to prove you are who you say you are in order to go vote. You can just go, give the person your street address, and your name, and they'll cross you off as having voted.  I've always found this a little odd, that in

Language politics and the internet

There are  some people that I have been following on Twitter that I have now started following on Google+ because they are quite interesting and quite a few times they give you some food for thought. Two of these people are Panagiotis and Nikos (both post in English and Greek).  The origin of this post comes from a question that Panagiotis (@vrypan) had about the utility
