    Hey Gurdur! it appears I'm kind of floating around again to the hub. I know its been forever. I ended up breaking it off with my fiance back in january. I was going to move to Georgia this summer but ended up meeting this guy named Eddie and well I wanted to see where it would go. so now (as crazy as it sounds I know) I've recently moved to a town closer to Eddie's work with him and I now have interwebs again! So hopefully I'll be on a little bit more. lol

    Hi Tim, may I ask you something? on the assumption that you will say "yes" I shall go ahead. How does this forum work? I just don't understand it. It is so different to the t.h. one. On this one I can't work out how to follow topics or anything.

    By the way are you thinking of going to Shetland with us?

    Thanks! I am new here, but feel at home already as I'm often called 'heretic' and 'heathen' in my circles!

You can make anything political, from cheese to pronouns. Whether you can do that in any worthwhile way is a different matter. An exchange on Twitter caught my eye, since it touched upon linguistics. The New York City Commission on Human Rights (NYCCHR) is demanding that employers, landlords, professionals and 'all businesses' in New York City ask people their preferred gender pronoun from their first interaction. It appears the NYCCHR is also prescribing what pronounds can be used; in other words,...

A long while ago, deprogramming was a real fad. People made their livings from offering it 'professionally', or from writing about it (both for and against), or from writing or politicking about the cause of the deprogramming fad, the rise of certain religious and quasi-religious cults. In response to that, and to a recent exchange on Twitter, what I offer here is a true story, and a cautionary one. All it will do is illustrate that life can be very complex, and that simple answers can be utterly...

I was interested in some recent tweets on the Vietnam War by @HeerJeet, who is Jeet Heer, a senior editor at the American New Republic. What interested me was the one-sided view of things. I hold that his worldview is a set of rather close-set blinders, so it's really up to me to justify that view of his own views. It would also be upfront to list what other claims I am making here (which I will then back up below in this post).
1) The view that Jeet Heer espouses of the Vietnam War is a

Just for fun, I did a Google Trends search for "science" versus "fiction". The results show worldwide that science as a search term is strongly cyclical, but declining over time since 2005. What to me is strange is how the results for the USA alone are very regular in cyclicity indeed. Interest in science dips to lowest every July, and peak every September and January. Not being in the USA, I have no idea why; I suspect science-project competitions or the like. Meanwhile, interest in fiction remains...

Salon won't help you understand rampage killings at all. What's worse, neither will Michael Kimmel, an American sociologist. Salon published an excerpt from his book, "Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era". In that excerpt, he tells us all that:
Quote:
"Let’s be clear: just as we cannot understand rampage school shootings by focusing on the fact that they are always committed by boys, neither can we understand these cases simply by recognizing that they’re all men."
