Real good one: pakistani-american classmate posted a thing about his mixed feelings about Obama, who did some great stuff but also has killer *****s flying over his family's home country and blowing people up.

Crazed other classmate wrote a response about how "left wingers always let the perfect be the enemy of the good," and this is why Trump won. PS, everyone needs to stop blaming Hillary for anything she's ever done, or for losing, because it none of it is "fundamentally her fault."

Yeesh.

On the flip side, at a protest on Friday a guy came up to me and my friend and started picking a fight with us about my friend's socialist sign. But it's not what you might think, the guy was mad that it was socialist and not fully revolutionary communist. He kept making weird historical comparisons and when we said that those comparisons did not mean anything, he said we were idiots, only interested in politics for "fashion," and not interested in learning from history. Ugh fuck off dude.

There's a good eight or ten reasons why Hillary lost, and IMO no single one stands out. But yeah, the tendency of liberals of all stripes to interrupt discussions with "What about MY issue?" is kind of annoying. Which isn't to say that those issues aren't important or shouldn't be addressed. But you don't see NRA types busting into an anti-abortion rally shouting "What about the Second Amendment?!?" They know they'll have their moment, and the rest of the base will have their back.
(Did I post this already? I feel like I posted this already.)

I do think Obama's terms were largely good, but Rany Jazayerli's piece about Obama's legacy (or lack thereof) in Syria is haunting.

My shitty roommate is on a streak of having loud phone conversations in our living room where he gloats about how funny it was when he was rude to/angry at a service industry person.

He is moving out and is telling his dad on the phone that he's mad that the office lady at his new place isn't treating him like he thinks he should be treated as a Fancy Rich Wall Street Guy.

The other day he got in a verbal altercation with a cop and the cop had his car towed. That made me pretty happy. He had to spend all day going to get it in the rain.

HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU BE A PERSON WHO SETS UP A COMPLICATED SCHEME TO AVOID TAXES, AND THEN GET ENRAGED WHEN YOUR TAX RETURN IS LATE COMING BECAUSE YOU FUCKED UP THE FORM???

i want bad things to happen to this man. the good news is he seems pretty good at bringing them on himself (see above post about his car getting towed)

I really like my roommate Angela. She told me about a letter her grandma sent her thanking her for a birthday present, where she said "now I know why you are named
ANGELA!"

That is very sweet but now every time she does something nice I want to say something dumb about her name. Hove some dignity Inev.

(Also not hoving dignity: I am still emulating the Hoveing of Dignity joke which happened before I joined the board, even though I have been posting here for over 10 years. Just a baby who wants to belong at heart)

One of my roommates has mentioned to me like 3 times that "we need to mail the new lease to the landlord." I wasn't sure why he kept mentioning this until today, when I realized it hadn't been mailed bc he was waiting for me to do it. What?

People who swap WE and YOU piss me off to no end. Just tell a dude you want him to do a thing already.

Preach. I often say "And by 'we,' do you mean me?"

Just flashed back, for some reason, to one of the great self-trolls in history.

This friend of my ex was teasing her about calling her dad to ask for money, and said something about her having "daddy issues." I said, well, if you think it's some kind of oedipal minefield for a college student to ask for money, maybe you're the one with the daddy issues.

She stormed off, it turns out she had daddy issues. My ex was very upset with me about this.

(not like, abuse issues, her dad was just a jerk and she became attracted to mean father figures)

At this point I think you can forget the guilt of hurting these people and begin to take pride in the fact of how hard you burned this bitch. That was laser guided, man. Cold as Ice. Good Job!

Some people will believe anything. In this case those people include Tom Waits and Robbie Robertson.

I think the consensus is that it's probably cricket sounds, but they've been manipulated to sound like a choir. This article has a sound file of what it actually sounds like when you slow down a cricket chirp.

My friend's GF was giving us shit about our "socialist club" being a glorified social circle, and he started arguing back from a majorly weak position "well ok, sure, it's mostly about throwing parties and going out for drinks, BUT" and I just cut him off right there. This week a local immigrant organization is having a day of education and resource sharing (like helping people fill out forms, helping kids apply for DACA before it expires, informing people about their rights as documented or undocumented immigrants, etc) and my group is bringing 88 volunteers. It's so many people that they are scrambling to come up with more activities to fill the day. Not our fault you only show up to the happy hours, dude.

(there are like 100 criticisms I would accept about the group but "all you do is throw parties" is not one of them, that is just not true)

also, I am learning something about myself. I like being given responsibility, but I do not like being in charge of people. I would really like for the "activism/volunteering" part of my life to be something where I can kind of turn my higher brain off and put in some sweat.
