Well, the U.S. military being 1/100 of the size of the U.S. civilian population may not make all those subsidies realistic. We provide the military with generous subsidies because they make enormous sacrifices for the rest of the population. But I definitely agree with the military being more open and tolerant than society in general.

We've been buying things from stores for hundreds of years. We've been buying things from the interwebs for less than 20. Not saying we're going to buy everything online, but give it time and watch.
@E$ Tell him that for every time he wants to go to Hot Doug's, he has to take you the next weekend to Alinea.

Meh. Gould has always struck me as someone with alot of hype but not much talent. Jimmy Kimmel calling her out to her face a few years ago was great.
@stuffisthings Your periodic reminder that working more and "harder" doesn't mean more productive.
@stuffisthings The ballooning of administrations at universities is a big part of why costs have skyrocketed. Some of the posts created at the UC system are cringe-worthy.
