    Have you tried rolling out? Stretching is great but using a muscle roller can sometimes be easier to fit time in for.

    This looks interesting, but to me the whole point of the command line is that it's generally faster and way less resource intensive, and the point of a GUI is that it's easy to look at and understand and figure out.

    This seems to combine the worst of both worlds.

    Yep, and I think people are struggling to understand that is an option.

    Biden won't get more than a vote from me in the general.

    While I agree with you, I will continue to support Bernie until Biden actually is the nominee, at which point I will switch.

    Not that it helps you feel better, but at least for running the general though is always that if it's above the shoulder, you can run through it.

    I'm down.

    I'm a morning person, I get up around 5am every day to go run and we're just now reaching that time of year where it's starting to get light out when I finish up my run (which is my favorite time of year.) Except next week it will reset again and I'll have to wait a few more weeks until that's the case again. It's stupid.

    If Joe Biden is the nominee and you're not going to vote for him, then you're not allowed to say a single word against Trump if he's re-elected.

    I suspect this is true for 99% of social media posts in general. That's a good point though, reactions to high-emotion events like sports could certainly be a good use case.

    but I bet over 99% of tweets could easily be deleted after 24 hours without anything useful being lost.

    I've been trying to figure that out too. I knew /r/politics was biased but I guess I didn't think about just how much it was.

    I've seen a lot of people talking about this on Reddit as well and I've been trying to figure out how this could impact the race going forward.

    My thought (and hope) is that most of the active young Bernie supporters who did show up and vote yesterday are also people who 100% agree with the Vote Blue No Matter Who movement, and so if Biden ends up winning the nomination, they would still show up in November to vote for him.

    The concern of course is that all the young voters who couldn't bother to vote yesterday, but still support Sanders, will instead see Biden winning the nomination (if it happens) as just confirmation that their vote wouldn't have mattered because the system is clearly rigged against them, and so will now not show up to vote in November (but may have had Sanders won the nomination.)

    Of course the problem is that many young people have a hard time realizing that most of what they read online in places like Tildes and Reddit is a bit of an echo chamber and so while it may seem like Sanders has been the overwhelming favorite since day 1, Biden has been polling consistently #1 or top 3ish since he entered the race, and while there definitely seems to have been some surprise at how well he did yesterday, it wasn't quite the coup that young voters thing it was.

    Not sure what the best solution is other than to make sure you get all of your friends, family, and neighbors to vote in November! (and vote in the primary if your state's hasn't happened yet.)

  14. Comment on Why Swexit is unthinkable – trade ties make Sweden's European Union departure unthinkable in ~finance

    For anyone who doesn't want to click the link considering it's literally a paragraph long.

    The U.K.’s departure from the European Union may prove tough for Sweden: The free-trade loving, non-federalist Nordic country has been a close ally of Britain in the EU and it will now be more isolated. Yet Swexit is unthinkable for now -- Sweden has much more to lose than Britain. Bloomberg Economics’ gravity model of international trade suggests that Sweden’s total trade in goods is more than 20% higher than it would have had the country not joined the EU in 1995 -- that’s roughly double BE’s estimate of the benefit to the U.K. as a result of its membership of the single market.

    I've fallen back in to my Football Manager hole that I suspect will last a couple more weeks. I usually pick up a save for a few weeks and play through, then get bored and switch to something else before coming back.

    Also, I tried messing around with X-Plane 11 which is a flight sim and looks pretty cool, but either it's super buggy or my computer just can't handle it because I could not fly smoothly to save my life.

    I'd really like to finally learn PHP and maybe some Javascript, basically some more web development. The problem is that I've never really had a good "project" to work on as a way to learn.

    Even right now I use Drupal for a website so I haven't found a reason to actually do any of the coding. If anyone has suggestions on good basic projects to get started with those two languages, I'm very open to suggestions.
