    The only good thing about the lousy title is that it doesn't use the stupid Greek numerals. I hope you're ashamed of yourself.

    If you have LastPass, I think it can securely store credit card numbers.

    On the first page of the rants thread, Ajidica? This is heresy.

    Sorry! I really was having trouble connecting to facebook because of a spotty Internet connection last night.


    There is a technical explanation behind it, of course.

    The latest iteration of my CC has no personal information on the front of the card. Everything is black type on white and is on the back of the card.

    Same problem here, with insufficient contrast. I have to hold it at a certain angle in the light. Although you'd think I'd have them memorized by now, given how much I use them (couldn't resist adding to the penguin collection a few days ago).

    Cancel culture is now turning on Dave Chapelle because he said some mean things about them. Sad times we live in indeed.

    Well, there's a surprise. People are responsible for what they say, after all.

    Except those calling for Chapelle's special to be pulled off Netflix are literally proving him right because that's one of the points he makes in the special. He basically pokes fun at all the people who try to destroy and tear down people just because they disagree with them politically.

    If I were to support any further amendments to the Constitution, it would be one that greatly expands 1st Amendment rights to protect people from having their livelihoods threatened because they expressed an opinion. Basically I would change the right to free speech to also guarantee the right to a platform for that speech as well.

    Having a guaranteed platform is not the same thing as being able to pick your platform. No amount of free speech laws would stop, say, Netflix from pulling the show if they felt it necessary.

    How can a freeze peach supporter not support the right of people to say that the show should be pulled off?

    "We can't say the thing," they say, as they say the thing on their ******* Netflix special

    You (and Dave Chappelle) really need to get a grip

    Huh. Interesting position. Does this include a platform for my free speech calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment?
