      Not since I was 19.

      Come to think of it, I just re-read Hegel, Locke, and found them different (Aristotle hadn’t changed).  Maybe I ought to re-read the Federalist papers.

      I’m working up a Horror/Cliffhanger campaign for some friends, and a couple of days ago I had “Military Small Arms of the 20th Century”, Miller’s “The President and the Assassin” about McKinley and Czolgosz, GURPS Horror, and “Dreams of Terror and Death” which is a Lovecraft anthology… on the table next to me at Peet’s.

      I wonder if anybody took a picture of my car.Report

    … yeah. I know of at least one video game that is technically illegal to own in America. (it’s freeware to boot). Not that anyone’s likely to care, because you aren’t using that RNG to encrypt anything…Report

    And I am reminded of yet another story.

    Back when I was like 25 or something, I applied for an entry-level job at Boeing. We got to the question in the interview where I was asked “are you now, or have you ever been, a member of any organization that actively fought for or supported the violent overthrow of the United States Federal Government?” and, me being 25, I answered “The Southern Baptist Church.”

    Well, the interviewer did *NOT* think that that was anywhere *NEAR* as funny as I did.

    I didn’t get the job.Report
