As recently as 20 years ago, the logo was of an Indian chief with a headdress, but apparently somebody clued them in and now it's a knight's helmet, so that was an easy change. I wonder when they did that?

It would have been funnier if they'd changed their logo to match the 1979 film The Warriors . . . "Warriors, come out and play!"

There's a K-drama (I can't remember the name right now but can find it if anyone's that interested) about two college athletes where he's a swimmer and she's a weightlifter. I'm all for diversification of sports - the most sports you're exposed to, the more likely you are to find one that interests you.

Also, I really think someone needs to write an article "Why to trick your brain into things a small animal is hopping up your arm" as a companion piece to the how article. I mean, I suppose it's interesting that you can do this, but I think the more interesting question is "How did someone come to find out that it's possible to do this?"

My question exactly, which prevented me from clicking through.

I already have "formications" I don't need more!

The "both sides" thing just makes me angry. I do believe in acknowledging both sides of an argument,* but when you talk about Neo Nazis there are no other sides. The conversation begins and ends with Neo Nazis.

*Although some would call this problematic. However, to me it's not necessarily as much "well both are right/wrong" as it is acknowledging that it's very easy to paint the opposing side of a debate as cartoon villains, when in reality, people are not cartoons. People have many different reasons for believing what they do, and I find it more helpful for my own arguments to understand them. But like I said, this isn't the case when it comes to Neo Nazis.

Yeah. I don't think Trump meant that as a weird way of being diplomatic, I think he was just being... Trump. :/
