Will code for food

As of yesterday (2016/11/29), I am unemployed. On the bright side, at least the monkey of having to justify my continued employment by taking those stupid MicroSoft certification tests every few years is off my back.

The volcano gods are angry!

Douglas Wilson: Babylon and the Bolshevik Buttercups
But surrounding the whole thing, there has always been a mysterious bipartisan consensus, one dictated by an imperious zeitgeist, promulgated by the entertainment complex and media, and studiously obeyed by all the politicians. This zeitgeist was enthusiastically pushed by the left and sullenly obeyed by the right, and the whole culture steadily followed after it. When it has made enough of an appearance to be given a name, it has been called political-correctness.

If you want to know what powers this zeitgeist has, look no further than the immediately honored demand—driven by hidden chthonic powers—that a hapless congressman from East Toad Flats (R-AR) be found guilty of a career-ending gaffeous blunder because someone at the state fair barbecue recorded him telling a blonde joke. The cry goes up in the village and into the volcano he goes.

So this brings us to the recent presidential election. A mistake that many are making with regard to all of this is that they are trying to interpret everything in terms of policy. Now as I said at the top, policy matters and the new president will have to institute particular policies. He will have to govern, in other words. ...

But don’t let that distract you from what is really going on. What is really going on is a gigantic collision between the insiders and the outsiders. Nothing is more obvious than that the decree went forth from the zeitgeist that Trump was to be thrown into the volcano, as so many before him had been, and the villagers refused.
In case Gentle Reader is unaware, Wilson was/is a NeverTrumper.

Genetic 'explanations' for human behavior

As I've mentioned in passing, I'm 59 years old. As with most older people, I can no longer focus properly on close work, such as when reading a book; no doubt most of this is due to age, but I expect that part of it is because I have spent most of my life staring at computer screens. Also, I understand that for most people, this inability to focus properly generally becomes a problem at about age 40. In my case, I began noticing it at around age 52 or 53 ... and, to this day, cheap (i.e. $1.50) reading glasses, at the lowest level (1.25) take care of the problem for me.

On the other hand, my mother needed glasses before age 30 and my father not long after. My twin sisters needed glasses from childhood. Our brother is somewhere in between (but closer to my condition that to the girls').

So, two human beings, both of whom had faulty vision from a relatively young age, produced four children (with three genetic profiles), two of whom (having a single genetic profile) had worse vision that either of the parents (*), and two of whom had better vision that either of them, and at least one of those has vision that is at least one or two standard deviations better than average.

So, given how useless looking at peoples' genes would be in telling one physical facts about their children, such as what the children's vision would be like, how does it even begin to make sense to "explain" human behavior in terms of genes, especially when one ignores culture to do so?

(*) My sisters had three children each, and only one of the six needed glasses as a child.

Taqiyya vs Truth

Kathy Shaidle: Two “Muslim headscarf victim” stories, one fake, one real
FAKE: Muslim woman claims Trump supporters pulled off her hijab, later admits she made up the story.

TRUE: Muslim girl takes headscarf off in shopping mall, other Muslims beat her up, send her to hospital.
"The media" will trumpet the first story ... and somehow forget to tell you it was a hoax; and they will never tell you the second story.

A better job than I could manage

Nikki Green (YouTube): Star Spangled Banner MAGA -- she hit a few flat notes (including in the easy parts), but still does a much better job than I ever could hope to do. I simply cannot sing, much less sing that song.
