  • @matvic Some use "cultural shit in GovComms" to rationalize their profound cynicism. Strikes me as akin to vandalism of #Gov2 and the like. in reply to matvic #
  • Q: temp is avg energy of molecules, right? What if reduce number i.e. pressure? What at 10% sea level? 1%? 0.1% #science #

  • @sourcePOV "Choose your top 5" … any chance adding Rawls to that? His "veil of ignorance" is a pretty neat approach! in reply to sourcePOV #
  • I've made my living providing solutions. Given self-congratulatory complasence in #Gov2 and absent effective RFP, I'm pretty much screwed. #
  • Oh-woops, full-page ad in Miami paper: "Congratulations to the Heat!" Face in porridge, anyone? #
  • @SimonOstler I've seen in a couple of times. Not sure what got YEG into common usage. in reply to SimonOstler #
  • #NHL – Tension's getting me … 4:05MDT I declare the bar open. #VAN #BOS #
