Let's play a quick game, even if nobody reads this in time

I'm calling this game "Lying, or Really F%$@# Stupid?". It's easy to play: just read a quote, in this case from Texas Representative Louie Gohmert, and...

"The plain meaning of sexual orientation is anything to which someone is sexually oriented. That could include exhibitionism. It can include necrophilia. It could include...voyeurism. You see somebody spying on you changing clothes and you hit them, they've committed a misdemeanor. You've committed a federal felony under this bill."

Well, I think it's pretty obvious what I want you to do.

An actual conversation

" 'That would be like saying that milk, cheese, and such, are called '''dairy products''' because farmers would dare each other to pull on the cows' udders.' "
"That's how I'm going to define it from now on."
"And the supporters of Proposition 8 think you should have that right. Or maybe they think you shouldn't, I'm not quite sure."
Yeah, it's a bad sign for a position if its proponents can't explain it well enough for people to make fun of it.

So, apparently, exams make me want to focus on these things again

There is a lot wrong with how I was doing this before. I was misunderstanding a lot of the things that have to be done with blogs, and not even in just the sense of "don't not post for months at a time". Once I finish up this semester's homework, I plan to go through most of my 'old' posts and fix them up.
