“Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” - G.K. Chesterton

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Wow. Drone swarm software is really impressive.

Yeah but that is a bad place to "shoot" from because of angles and atmospheric attenuation. 


Is "shoot" the wrong word for lasers? It works for arrows and bullets...
