computer science programs should spend a LOT more time and effort teaching students how to do effective technical writing

Of course I support a third party, because NEITHER of the two mainstream ones support the policies that are important to me:
Going to the moon (And making it into paperclips.)
Ending global warming (By turning the atmosphere and earth into paperclips)
Bringing an end to animal suffering (By turning them into paperclips)
Meeting extraterrestrial life (And turning them into paperclips)
Ending death and sadness (By giving/making everyone paperclips.)
With all current discourse it seems interesting to post again the paradox of tolerance:
> The paradox states that if a society is tolerant without limit, their ability to be tolerant will eventually be seized or destroyed by the intolerant. Popper came to the seemingly paradoxical conclusion that in order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance.
Dammit this was really not how I wanted to start the morning.

What they call fascists are generally more neo-fascists I guess... super racist, super religious conservatives who preach an ideology of dominance, isolationism and racial superiority.
Idk maybe it's an evolution of the same ideas? Seems rather different than actual Mussolini-style "the citizen must serve state" kind of fascism.
Need to learn more about the evolution there. To Wikipedia!

Antifa people don't even use the term fascism correctly. Fascism is a political ideology that came out of WW1 that emphasizes nationalism, militarism and imperialism, and was viewed by its supporters as a necessary tool to fight the sort of total wars for dominance and survival that WW1 seemed to be just the first of.
Then the atomic bomb made that sort of war obsolete, because starting another one would mean the end of the world. So the major powers started different kinds of empires.
IMO metrosexual should be redefined from "guys who get their eyebrows done" to "people who are only attracted to subterranean rail systems"
I'm definitely against fascism which is kinda why antifa scare me cause they sound kinda fascist.
"Yes we will advocate open organized violence against the people who disagree with us what's your point."
Gee, lemme think about that one. Maybe violence is a bad tool for solving problems and we should try to be better and more ethical than our opponents?

Do people fucking listen to themselves? "If you're not against fascism you're against humanity"?
That is not an argument, that is a justification. That's the sort of justification that people use for killing other people. "If you're not against capitalism you're against progress" "if you're not against communism you're against freedom" "if you're not against Jews you're against God"
If antifa people are butthurt about being called terrorists maybe they should stop sounding like them.
#Inktober 8. An overdue gift/trade for a friend of her Charr guardian, Shah Stormwalker in a fanciful semi-heraldic style. I know it’s not terribly “traditional” as far as style execution goes, I just wanted an excuse to see how well I could ink with a brush. I’m slowly but surely getting over my aversion to painting with India ink.
Fortunately it's seasonal.
I need to make some bat cutouts and position them to cast spooky shadows.
