    I accidentally started listening to Taylor Swift and now I'm hooked. >:(

    I think both sides are imperfectly human. Though I lean toward Libertarian ideals.

    Meaning... You can live however you want as long as you don't harm anyone else.

    To threaten with violence a speaker with a different point of view is a definite no no.

    Personally, I think that ignoring and/or giving a platform to fascists and their brand of bigotry is dangerous because it just allows it to fester and spread and potentially gain popular support, as it did in Germany and Italy during the early-mid 20th century and is currently happening in places like Greece with groups like Golden Dawn, France with Le Pen and the National Front, and the US with the rise of the alt-right. Rather than simply ignoring them, I think it's better to show up, confront them, and scare them back under whatever rock they crawled out from.

    Some people really need to get a life. There is a discussion on Facebook about round pizzas, in square boxes being cut into triangles. there are 155+ comments - and counting! - about whether the triangles are really triangles, or arc sections... OMG... FFS, people....!!

    Naturally I skipped over this and ignored it, as there was a much more interesting and cute video posted about cats experiencing brain-freeze as they licked ice cream. @Jason....

    Yes, yes. I used to spend hours on FB having political discussions and waxing philosophically on the nature of life, and now I mainly use it to find cute/funny cat videos. This might be the best one yet:
