Trying to process World Fantasy. Don't have much time for it. Tonight is another exam and I'm kind of focusing on that.

A commentary about the clap harder version of conservative politics (from the American Conservative). Dan Larison vocalizes some of the fears I have over this election. Namely that conservatives will feel empowered that the reason their Tinker Bell dreams didn't work last time was that they didn't clap hard enough. So this time they'll try harder to force the changes that brought about economic ruin before. (grokked form Jay Lake)

Here's a take on "bucket lists" that is mirroring some of my internal thoughts. I'm also struggling with changing my views from "we'll do that when we retire" to adapt to the reality of, "nope, probably not going to be able to do those things when we retire, better get them done now." It's also one of those Myths We Tell Ourselves™. It's something I'm really working hard to overcome. (retweeted from Tobias Buckell)
