  1. Yeah, I probably worded that poorly. I'm not saying it's a good argument or that we shouldn't progress forward as a society even against majority opposition. I just think mainstream society isn't quite "ready" for this one yet. Societal change comes when, well, society changes. And I don't think it has yet on this gender fluidity stuff. Not saying it won't happen in the very near future.
  2. I know I'm getting old because I don't really get a lot of the LGBTQIAXPU stuff. I don't know what half of those letters stand for and they seem to add a new one every few months. I haven't been paying attention, but I vaguely understand that there are men who identify as women and want to use women's bathrooms or something? That seems weird to me. I say that as a progressive who fully supports gay rights, etc. I think there is something to the argument that we should be cautious about pushing through social change before society is ready. I totally accept that I may be becoming an old out-of-touch guy but has "genders using the other gender's bathroom" really become a major issue very suddenly? I'm not even saying I'm against it, I just don't get it.
  3. Probably not but there's this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy6OEvb1or8
  4. Went there once about 15 years ago. Only thing I remember is the garbage plate.
  5. If these "patriots" wanted to actually create civil unrest they'd have to come out of their little hidey-holes in the mountains so that doesn't seem like a problem.
  6. This is gold coming from a birther nut.
  7. After pretty much not watching TV for most of the last 10 years or so (Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley are pretty much the only exceptions), for some reason over the past few weeks I've been really into binge watching shows. Here's what I've gone through so far (not all of these are Netflix but whatever): Westworld (watched it twice through, loved it) Sherlock (flawed, but I really enjoyed it) Black Mirror (a few misses but mostly very good) The OA (love/hate relationship - it was so dumb but I couldn't stop watching it) 3% (not great but not too bad) Stranger Things (loved it) Started watching Travelers but gave up after episode 2 I think. The premise sounded up my alley but something about it I just didn't like. Currently almost done with Mr. Robot (love it so far) Any obvious recommendations to watch next?
  8. A father and son both molest kids - the father is a monster, the son is a victim. Don't know what that says or what kind of point I'm trying to make, it's just weird, right?
  9. Saw this somewhere else, but Trump was born on third, thinks he hit a home run, and is getting tagged out while trying to steal second.
  10. You lost faith in both sides and the news media because someone who works for MTV (I had no idea who she was, just googled it) tweeted something stupid?
  11. The larger metropolitan areas have a lot more people in them than everywhere else. The only sense in which the country is "mostly red" is geographic, which is mostly meaningless.
  12. Column A is just the years, not dates, right? Then just do: =if(A2=2017,"N","Y") If that doesn't work, the other thing that comes to mind is that the years are stored as text instead of numbers or something, so you could try: =if(A2="2017","N","Y")
  13. After 80-100 years or so you'd probably die, so I don't think so.
