True
  • Yeah, I figured it was some flavour of EDM, but for some reason hardstyle stands out to me as using more of those idiomatic types of lines. Not sure if that's actually true or not, though. :)

    But yeah, I'm sure it been sampled in lots of different dance genres.

  • Another provocative flag was flown at another Alito home
  • I was curious about the flag, so did a little reading. Apparently the "Appeal to heaven" is referring to John Locke's writings regarding the right to revolution:

    And where the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth, then they have a liberty to appeal to heaven, whenever they judge the cause of sufficient moment. And therefore, though the people cannot be judge, so as to have, by the constitution of that society, any superior power, to determine and give effective sentence in the case; yet they have, by a law antecedent and paramount to all positive laws of men, reserved that ultimate determination to themselves which belongs to all mankind, where there lies no appeal on earth, viz. to judge, whether they have just cause to make their appeal to heaven.

    (Second Treatise of Civil Government. John Locke)

    Locke’s contention was that no man had inherent power to regulate or restrict divine arbitration in civil affairs. Even in dire circumstances, he alleged, natural rights transcended the political process.

  • Coin-flipping game
  • after flipping a quarter 20 times and getting Tails every time, I'd be inclined to keep flipping if anything.

    It's a sunk cost fallacy, it's never too late to get bored and give up. ;)

  • Coin-flipping game
  • Are all games played to completion? Assuming yes,

    answer
    P(A) = Sum[1/4^n,{n,1,∞}] = 0.333...
    P(B) = 1/8
    P(C) = 1/16
    

    One of A,B or A,C is dependent, as it'd flip the polarity of the remaining games, the other is independent, as it wouldn't. I'm not too worried about which is which, as it's just an off-by-one error. xD

    Assuming no, You'd have to know the distribution of when games were abandoned, I'd think.

  • US Senator Rubio says he won't accept election results if 'unfair'
  • I agree, it's best to not pull at the fraying threads of democracy, but it's not like there's never been a controversial election before. Take the 2000 Gore v. Bush election, for example.

    If Reuters wants to expose the laying of groundwork, then they have to do more than baiting a fairly mundane statement out of a single R. They have to collect evidence of republicans doing it themselves. This is just lazy reporting that plays to peoples fears.

  • US Senator Rubio says he won't accept election results if 'unfair'
  • Trump and his allies are laying the groundwork to contest a potential loss

    While that's probably true, Rubio kinda gave a reasonable answer to an unreasonable question. Of course there are possible circumstances that any reasonable person would not honour the results of an election.

    Of all the ridiculous shit these guys say, maybe don't pick the one time they're actually in the right. Like they tell on themselves all the time, you generally don't have to twist their words.

  • Za #4, Pepperoni Pizza

    I happened across some store bought vegan pepperoni, and decided I'd do one of the most simple pizzas in existance: the NY style pepperoni pizza. It totally wasn't because I was lazy and it takes like almost zero effort.

    My dough caught on the peel as I was shimmying it on to the griddle, so I kinda got this weird teardrop-shaped pizza. Oh well. (:

    There's really just something very comforting about a basic-ass slice like this. It's not fancy or pretentious, just delicious.

    Pizza Friday #3 - Sweet & Savoury

    So I've decided to make pizza every Friday this summer. This is \#3, but I declined to post the first two because they contained a slightly controversial brand plant based meat substitute.

    This one has vegan blue cheese, caramelized onions, button mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, balsamic reduction and pear slices. I meant to add a bit of arugula, but I forgot. A little fresh basil probably would have been good too.

    Oh yeah, I was going to have it last night (y'know, on Friday like I said) but some stuff came up so I had to delay a night.

    Feel free to ask for any recipes or whatever! I generally follow Adam Ragusa's NY style pizza recipe, but he's not vegan so if you don't want to give him additional traffic, I can probably answer any questions you might have.

    If you have any suggestions for my next pizza, I'd love to hear it! \\

    NY-ish style pizza

    A riff on the classic NY style pizza. Obviously with all the extra toppings, and a cheddar style "cheese", it's not in any way accurate, but it's what I happened to have on hand.

    • Adam Ragusea's NY Style Pizza v2 [Content Warning: recipe is not fully vegan. It contains cow milk.]

    "Cheese":

    • Smoked cheddar style vegan grating block

    Toppings:

    • Red onion, mushroom, vegan sausage, fresh basil
