‘Stone Cold.’

There is, like, very little affect in this video. Or at least it’s not really standard affect. There’s something weird going on.

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday, and my endorsement is…

…as before: whoever of Ted Cruz / Marco Rubio is ahead in your state. I know that that might hurt Rubio in Texas if he’s really below 20%, but them’s the breaks.  The point and the goal would be to get one of those two guys winning in as many states as possible.

By the way: Happy Leap Day!

…we need a word for this holiday, really.  Or is there one?  I don’t actually know.  …Wikipedia says ‘Leap Day,’ and goodness knows Wikipedia is never wrong about things that people don’t fight over obsessively.

One interesting piece of trivia, by the way: the year 2100 will not be a leap year.  You see, the leap year thing almost takes care of the entire ‘year is 365.25-ish days long thing:’ you have to do some more compensating to make it all work well enough for all but the most obsessive.  Removing the Leap Day from years divisible by 100 but not divisible by 400 will typically do the trick.  There’s apparently yet more plans to remove (or add) a day, thousands of years from now, but seriously that’s just too narrow-focused for words.

My Patreon short-short story ‘Golem.’

SS – Golem  Oddly philosophical. Maybe. Interesting to write, at least. Hope you enjoy it!

Written for Patreon – and if you were planning at some point to recommend mine to others, well, it wouldn’t hurt.

Tweet of the Day, The Gathering Storm edition.

If Trump is the nominee, you will have to get used to stuff like this.

Admittedly, if Trump is the nominee it won’t be my problem except in the most general sense, but it’s gonna be a problem for a bunch of people, including quite a few that I generally wish well. Said wishes would be of course utterly useless, but I’d still make ’em.

My RedState post on Arkansas.

Found here. We did a bunch of these for Super Tuesday. Anyway, short version: nobody’s polled this state in a month and Cruz was ahead by two in it and nobody knows if that’s meaningful or not and God but I miss obsessive state-level polling.

An update on my attempts to wean myself off of Twitter.

Not that great, honestly.  I think that I’m going to have to pretty much keep all iterations of Twitter or Tweetdeck or whatever off of my mobile devices.  That does help a lot.  The real problem is that I can’t delete Twitter itself from the Internet.  What I’m going to try to do today is regularize and time my logins.  Jump in, log in, check stuff for updates, probably block a few trolls, then log out again. That might help the cravings.

At least, I hope that it does.  The alternative is to simply cancel my Twitter account, and I kind of need it for work.  Which is possibly the largest complication of all: it’s like having a job that requires you to take regular sticks of morphine.  Get off the stuff, and your productivity suffers.  Which may be why more of my professional colleagues aren’t really even aware just how addicted we all are.

‘Uptown Funk.’

Oh, to heck with it. The damn song’s been earworming me since this morning anyway.

Patreon short-short-short: “Because Reasons, That’s Why.”

100WS-BRTW Mostly written because I thought that it’d be really funny if it ever turned out that way. Although admittedly the scenario would give materialists screaming nightmares, which is not actually a very nice thing to do so maybe ‘funny’ is an unkind word to use.

As always, check out my Patreon! Tell your friends!

A reminder about American historical political campaigns.

Pretty, they have never been.

Funny, on the other hand…

My RedState post on the South Carolina Democratic primary.

Found here.  Well, they had it, and they called it for Hillary Clinton right off the bat, and she crushed Bernie Sanders, and… they barely managed 368K voters.  Which beat the adjusted target number of  235K that I suggested would be “fair,” but was still far below the 500K that they managed in 2008. Those guys are having a real enthusiasm problem.
