I need a towel

...I must agree.

runcible talks popular music:

"Music today is so incredibly deplorable, but I did see something inadvertently amusing: the new Fallout Boy album was advertised on the same page as a Tampax Pearl ad. Fits together; both are for pussies. :)"

So, what're liberals & conservatices?

from an essay on polyamory & its relationship (or lack thereof) to larger social issues here: http://tacit.livejournal.com/197061.html
I think the biggest difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals think about the secondary and tertiary effects of their decisions with regard to welfare; a conservative thinks "My money is being taken away from me and given to bums, and I have less money and I don't like that," whereas the liberal thinks "My money is being taken away from me and given to people whose condition isn't as good as mine, and this process helps to better their condition, removing the impetus to commit crimes and giving them the opportunity to gain the tools they need to become better able to function in society; this benefits society through decreased crime and increased opportunity for the economy to expand as lower-income people gain new skills, become higher-income people, and become able to buy iPods and Razrs and other products that help stimulate the economy; therefore, I become better off." Though, of course, that could be my own particular biases talking. :)
