Overnight Open Thread (09-12-2017)

Prisoners work at Belbaltlag, a Gulag camp for building the White Sea-Baltic Sea Canal.

It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but on the contrary it is their social existence that determines their consciousness.

Nothing can have value without being an object of utility. If it be useless, the labor contained in it is useless, cannot be reckoned as labor, therefore cannot create value.

In proportion as the antagonism between classes within the nation vanishes, the hostility of one nation to another will come to an end.

Capitalist production begets, with the inexorability of a law of nature, its own negation.

Hey Texas...what are you going to do about this sleazy, ambulance-chasing piece of shit? Maybe disbar him for being supportive of violence against women? Maybe boycott his law firm? Maybe mock him when he emerges from under his slimy and dank rock? Call him out at restaurants? Picket his house and country club? Stop donating to his college (Ivy League of course)?

Whatever it is, it has to be something.

Ask, and ye shall receive.

Some of you click on all of the links.
Some of you click on just a few.
And some of you skip everything and go right to the comments.
I wonder how many of you will click on every one of these?
After all, there may be a marvelous nugget of goodness buried in these nine links!
Or it could be a cruel and horrible assault on your senses.
But you will never know unless you try them all.
Do any of you have the intestinal fortitude to wade through all nine?
And don't cheat! Enjoy the entire experience from start to finish.

Oh for fvck's sake! Somebody...anybody...put this culture out of its misery. How we can survive with this kind of pathetic display of anti-masculinity is beyond me. Do these "men" think that being a metrosexual weeny is going to get them laid? And if so, what kind of woman is their ideal?

Let's Bust Some 21st Century Trusts
Antitrust analysis associated with the University of Chicago (the “Chicago School” developed by Aaron Director, Robert Bork, and Richard Posner, among others) tends to be unconcerned with companies’ unilateral action and is skeptical of the existence of barriers to entry, believing that market dominance is ultimately an indication of economic efficiency. If the benchmark for government intervention is maximizing consumer welfare, the Chicago School asserted, then the only conduct deserving antitrust scrutiny is inter-firm (or “horizontal” ) collusion.

I don’t wish to challenge the premises of the Chicago School’s antitrust theory (although others have), but the categorical assumptions that informed its analysis may need to be re-examined in light of the markedly different conditions evident in certain industries dominated—not just domestically, but globally—by a single firm.

Consider Silicon Valley, the cradle of the so-called “gig economy.”


I understand the point, but I am unsure whether successful government action to limit monopolistic behavior on the part of Google/Facebook/Twitter is either possible or desirable. But...I'm a big fan of The Chicago School...

13 Kudos to the shaving creme marketing team. If I could use a regular razor without slicing off a coupla dozen skin tags and assorted other bumps on my face (No, not my nose...) then I'd use it. But, as it is, I'm pretty much forced into using an electric razor. (And not one of those rotary torture devices either...)

Yeah, I don't see how you could split up either Facebook or Twitter. Hell, last I heard, Twitter still hasn't found a way to earn a profit. Facebook is very profitable, but they seem like they are one big thing instead of a collection of many things. But, I avoid Facebook, so I may just be ignorant of the ways in which it could be split up.

Google would be different. Leaving aside whether it should be done, it certainly seems like it could be done. Google is made up of many pieces. Search, maps, translate, Adsense, Blogger, Google+ or whatever their Facebook imitation is. Not to mention Android. Seems like there should be many way to carve profitable pieces out of them.

69 Belbaltlag - no, not a horrid central European dish, but probably a portmanteau of "White/Baltic Camp" (beliy balteeskiy lagyer). One of the "hero projects" that killed so many.

And gave rise, I think, to wonderful revolutionary first names like "Dig!" - Roy Medvedev, the historian. "Roy" is the Russian singular/familiar imperative to dig - and is otherwise not a Russian name. His brother, Zhores, was named after a Spanish commie I think (Juarez).

Some names just didn't work out, though were extremely Soviet. Like "Traktor", for boys (yes, it means what you think). But some, like "Elektrifikatsiya" (yes, "Electrification", a girl's name cuz feminine ending) were easily converted to somewhat cool names - "Elektra".

104 86 I believe the original "anti-trust" principle was very simple, as embodied in the Sherman Act, which was only a few paragraphs - consumer harm was the only issue. No harm to consumer, no public issue. That remains, to me, a very solid approach.

Amazon is in a similar position, at this point. Hugely dominant, but it's all very fragile.

125 The Equifax personal information theft has motivated me to establish a credit freeze. To effectively do this one must contact all three credit reporting agencies.
Each agency will charge a fee to do this.

Also each agency has informed me this must be done in writing. Maybe this is because my identity has been stolen. (It's a pia.)

They, the credit reporting agencies, do not want individuals to freeze their credit. Neither do these credit monitoring companies or other fixit companies want you to freeze your credit.

If you put a freeze on your credit you no longer need to purchase any of this so called protection because you have protected yourself and only you can permit any other entity to view your credit. You own it.

131 I was schooled by the monetarists from the U of Chi. Crony capitalism was not part of the assumptions when I was schooled. I wonder what those professors would make of today's crony capitalism now 30 years later.

Google is dominant because more people choose to use it than other search engines. Its browser software and android software help maintain its dominance. {I don't use Google and I switched to an I-Phone to get away from android.}

I think that access to capital to challenge Google may be a bigger barrier than anything else. Tax policy must be addressed as well as the enormous budget deficient for their impact upon access to capital. Two things that bloat the deficient are transfer payments to immigrants and Obamacare {and its heir apparent, single-payer}.

Enact the Trump agenda and free our capital markets. Free people, free markets that should always be our goals.

Posted by: qdpsteve at September 12, 2017 10:28 PM (eMKNe)

134 but I am unsure whether successful government action to limit monopolistic behavior on the part of Google/Facebook/Twitter is either possible or desirable.

I've never studied economics... so I'm probably off base in many ways.

I'm not even sure that in the 19th century, antitrust laws were the right way to go.

Because informed consumers would be able to sniff out price fixing schemes and avoid them. I'm talking about how a few companies would collude to lower the price of some food in order to put competitors out of business, and then gouge customers when that had taken place.

The informed consumer would realize "this will benefit me in the short term, but I will be screwed over in the long term, so I will avoid this". There would be no need for government regulation, which would always be subject to regulatory capture in the end, and so would not even accomplish the desired goal. I would prefer "informed consumer" to government regulation.

But I think this is more hopeful than the situation in the 19th century. We have created these vile behemoths like google, twitter, facebook, youtube, and Amazon. I'm just as guilty as anybody. They are far more destructive than the trusts in the 19th century. But I think they are far easier to destroy. They do not provide any basic necessities. Just as people wised up last year that the GOPe was serving them a shit sandwich, so they would go for the outsider, they need to realize that these companies are evil, and just head for other alternatives (like bing, or getting shipping directly from whatever company they want, instead of using Amazon for the middleman), or do without.

Now it is very easy, and virtually cost free to be an "informed consumer". Just avoid toxic urls like google, facebook, etc.

137 As a demonstration of how hideous Twitter and Facebook are unless you delete everything except your very closest friends and family, Shelly Meyer, Urban Meyers wife posted on her twitter account today that she is taking a break from posting on it. After OSU lost Saturday to Oklahoma in football, the out of control nutty portion of the OSU fanbase has not only attacked the players, especially JT Barrett the QB, but also Meyer and the entire coaching staff at OSU. And that hideousness has been extended to Shelley, who often posts in support of players and is a strong supporter of the team and school.

I don't have a twitter account and won't. My facebook account has been so pared to remove all the political crap on it that I pretty much see kittens, food recipes, and baby pictures. And that's it.

188 Elton John was solid in the 1970's. Dependable. He straddled the line between cool and un-cool at the midway point of AM and FM. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is usually cited as his masterpiece, but the reputations of Tumbleweed Connection and Madman Across the Water, both from 1971, have grown in stature over the years.Interestingly, neither contained any big hit singles--. but "Tiny Dancer" could have been.

Someone gave $500, 000 dollars to the church.

No, I'm not really going to say it as it's lies, but it would irritate him. :^) I;d have to out something more reasonable though as he's a very bright person.

Is this similar to a feminine penis, or somewhat in between a manly penis and feminine one?

Note "feminine penis" was some 4Chan absurdity on the burning questions of "Are traps gay?", which got that prankster injected from that conference wherever. Not if the trap has a feminine penis, was a caveat. They went on to define that, something about Snuggle fabric softener dispenser.

No, because he is a male and opposes due process for males he's being virtuous. He's like the human in Avatar who is virtuous because he becomes a Na'vi who opposes humans. To oppose that which you are is virtuous, unless you are a member of the *ahem* "oppressed" classes, in which case to oppose what you are is being an Uncle Tom.

244 Because informed consumers would be able to sniff out price fixing schemes and avoid them. I'm talking about how a few companies would collude to lower the price of some food in order to put competitors out of business, and then gouge customers when that had taken place.

The informed consumer would realize "this will benefit me in the short term, but I will be screwed over in the long term, so I will avoid this". There would be no need for government regulation, which would always be subject to regulatory capture in the end, and so would not even accomplish the desired goal. I would prefer "informed consumer" to government regulation.

But I think this is more hopeful than the situation in the 19th century. We have created these vile behemoths like google, twitter, facebook, youtube, and Amazon. I'm just as guilty as anybody. They are far more destructive than the trusts in the 19th century. But I think they are far easier to destroy. They do not provide any basic necessities. Just as people wised up last year that the GOPe was serving them a shit sandwich, so they would go for the outsider, they need to realize that these companies are evil, and just head for other alternatives (like bing, or getting shipping directly from whatever company they want, instead of using Amazon for the middleman), or do without.

Now it is very easy, and virtually cost free to be an "informed consumer". Just avoid toxic urls like google, facebook, etc.

Yes. But it is mostly impossible to avoid Goolag entirely, unless you avoid youtube and emailing people and messaging to Android phones.

My brother refugeed with us for 10 days after Harvey, and he's a big technophile. I swear, I heard the phrase "Ok Google" approximately 12 billion times during his stay. That's how you start a voice search on your phone.

I was reduced to saying Okay Google, kill yourself, or OG, commit seppuku; well, you get the idea. Not a fan.

But I had an Echo Dot lying around that I was never going to use (it was a gift), so I gave him that. And I can report that Alexa is dumber than a box of rocks. Google has nothing to worry about there.

Madman is a really solid LP, probably his most overlooked. There's some great stuff on that... title track, Tiny Dancer, Levon and Rotten Peaches. Tumbleweed Connection is somewhat patchy, but it does have Burn Down The Mission on it... which is worth the price of admission alone... almost.

During Tuesday's White House press briefing, Sanders said she did not know whether Trump would read the whole book titled "What Happened."

"But I would think that he's pretty well versed on what happened and I think it's pretty clear to all of America," she said.

"I think it's sad that after Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost and the last chapter of her public life is gonna be now defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks and I think that's a sad way for her to continue [in] this form,"...

Fenelon, I'm assuming that he's always vaunting his wonderful numbers and statistics at you, which is why you are tempted to do the same to him.

You might try:

"Well, you know, numerical growth isn't as important as spiritual growth. Are you actually teaching them any sound doctrine? How long do they usually stay? Is the back door as wide as the front door?"

Or perhaps
"Well! You sure have done many great works. Perhaps not on the scale of St. Peter in Acts, or Jonathan Edwards, but you may get there someday. And though you've done many great works, dear, I hope you realize that salvation is not by works. That's the whole point"

Well, the good thing about moving to Indiana is that it will cost on ly a fraction of what it would in LA to pay someone to take the LAPD on a high speed car chase. Guess on the downside, it will be with a tractor not a car.

When IAPD sends out their major case squad it is usually to investigate serial cow tipping.

Well Captain, there were 2 or 3 cows tipped over here at the Smith place. Then down the path past the hollow 2 or 3 more at the Johnson place. Then round the bend by the big tree, not that big tree, the other big tree, things got crazy and there were 5 cows tipped.

I think I know the type. Gift of the gab, friendly but there is always a disconnect when you talk to them. I'm thinking about a boss of many years ago who wasn't a Christian, as well as few acquaintances I've had over the years. But this guy made a decision to go into the ministry. There may be something there. So it's not like me circulating in my secular system.

There is apparently a *small* positive correlation between height and penis length in men, and only the flaccid length.

Now, there is a correlation between fore and ring finger digit ratio and dick length.

That ratio is sort of surprising indicator of testosterone activity at a critical time during fetal development, and even seems to correlate with homosexuality.

Men with a "feminine" ratio are more likely to be gay or something.

You may be right. Mrs. JTB at (almost) 5' tall and me at 6'5". That sometimes attracts attention and has been a source of jokes for 35 years. The downside is it puts her nose at the level of my elbows. I have to be very aware when turning around in small rooms.

456 I recently checked out The Ranch on Netflix. If you remember That 70s Show fondly, you will love The Ranch.

It stars Kelso and Hyde as brothers working the family ranch, with frickin' Sam Elliot as their dad. How can you go wrong with a cast like that?

That's a rhetorical question. You really can't.

Fez and Kitty also put in appearances, and I suspect more That 70s Show stars will be showing up in the future. Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson are also the producers of The Ranch, and they do a great job of capturing the feel of their previous work together while still making something new and different.

It has way more uncensored cussing than you'd expect from what is ultimately a standard sitcom (albeit a high-quality one) with a laugh track and everything, so if that bothers you, well, I just thought you should know that.

I'm really impressed with The Ranch, myself, and I highly recommend it!

I see short women with tall and very tall guys very frequently. I saw a black guy who looked like he was an off-duty MBA player with a woman who had to be around 5 feet tall. Seeing them from the back with his hand on her shoulder, I thought he was with his daughter at first, until they turned around.

I will say this: date a guy who is only a couple of inches taller than you are (or the same height if you wear heels) and the logistics of certain things becomes much easier. He doesn't have to bow down or practically do a squat to kiss you goodnight, for instance.

490 The Chicago school has the correct opinion on antitrust regulation, validated by studies on what happens to markets after a trust is "busted" (consumer costs go up after the more efficient company is taken apart and new competitors have to charge more to earn any profit at all, the barrier to entry was the superior efficiency that new competitors couldn't match). The point is not to stay that monopolies cannot be bad, but that a monopoly is not a bad thing merely because it exists, which was the commonly held belief for a large part of the last century.

Google doesn't deserve to be held at fault simply because they dominate the market. However if they abuse their position in the market there's no reason that they cannot face lawsuits or regulation or sanctions. Google has embarked on a crusade to influence politics and are utilizing their dominance in search and advertising to achieve their aims. This absolutely does present a problem, they are effectively colluding with certain news outlets, blogs, other web sites and services and using their monopoly status to ensure that their favorites become dominant. There is nothing inconsistent about punishing that sort of behavior.

506 "Operation Barbecue Relief" reminds me of the tornado that destroyed my parents home--the home I grew up in--a few years ago. The day after the storm we were clearing trees and debris so my parents could get to the house and we could really begin to assess the damage.

A truck from the best barbecue place in town pulled into the driveway. The driver unloaded a styrofoam cooler full of pork sandwiches and followed that with all the fixings--cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, and sweet tea.

My brothers and sister and I had grown up eating that barbecue, and there was something special about having it that day.

It was a gesture of kindness I won't forget.

I always liked dating the girls 5-7 or shorter. I dated a girl in h/s who was 6-2 and people said we looked like an 11 walking down the street. It bothered me a bit, but her stage 4 clinger jealousy was far more annoying.

Funny, I've never thought about it, but height of a woman, within a range of normality, doesn't matter to me at all. Don't care if she's taller or shorter.

Now, some she-giant would bother me of course, and a very short, something wrong would, but other than that, I don't give a rip.

Don't know if that's normal or not, really. Some buddies of mine would be embarrasaed by a gal taller than they were, but not me.

598 ... according to Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) who appeared on Fox News recently, there may be more to Alvi's return than meets the eye as he predicts that the Awans could be working on a broader immunity deal with prosecutors in return for a "significant" and "pretty disturbing" story about Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

"I don't want to talk out of school here but I think you're going to see some revelations that are going to be pretty profound. The fact that this wife is coming back from Pakistan and is willing to face charges, as it were, I think there is a good chance she is going to reach some type of immunity to tell a larger story here that is going to be pretty disturbing to the American people."

"I would just predict that this is going to be a very significant story and people should fasten their seat belts on this one."

I have to extricate myself-which is a problem since I like his family and people at the church and they all know me know-and I think like me. If you are in a relationship with a narcissist you have to ease out without confronting them or they can go ballistic and trash you to everyone who knows you. So pray for wisdom on this. I think i would have overlooked it had in not been a awful month and had he actually been there to listen more or e-mail. me. Sorry to go on at length

Brad Owens and Jerry Torres, of Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions, say they faced pressure to stay silent and get on the same page with the State Department with regard to the security lapses that led to the deaths of four Americans.

641 An ideologically divided U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday handed a win to Republicans in Texas by putting on hold rulings that said electoral districts drawn by state lawmakers discriminated against minority voters.

On a 5-4 vote, with the court's conservatives in the majority and the liberal justices dissenting, the court in a brief order blocked two different lower court decisions that found fault with both congressional districts and state legislative districts drawn by the Republican-controlled state legislature.

In August, a federal court in Texas struck down two Republican-drawn congressional districts saying they were discriminatory and ordering new maps to be drawn ahead of elections in 2018.

The court said the 27th and 35th congressional districts were drawn in violation of the U.S. Voting Rights Act. Texas has 36 districts, with Republicans holding 25 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and Democrats 11.

643 Something I've been pondering recently, as far as dating goes... I would be absolutely thrilled to be in a relationship with a sweet, good-natured and even, well, ditzy girl. But how can I put something like that in a dating site profile?

I mean, every other guy out there says he wants an intelligent girl. How can I put it if I think intelligence is kind of overrated? I mean, hey, not everyone can be above average in everything!

But I'm finding it challenging to find a way to say, "You can be kinda dumb, as long as you're sweet and good-natured" in my profile.

I wouldn't turn my nose up at a smart girl or anything, but how could I say that intelligence isn't, you know, a high priority for me in a dating site profile, without inadvertently offending women all across the intelligence spectrum?

I mean, most people think of intelligence as an absolute good, while I think of it as just another trait that some people have, and nobody's perfect, and I value that particular trait less than most other people do.

How can I say on a dating site profile that a girl doesn't have to be, like, a genius or anything?

655 Something I've been pondering recently, as far as dating goes... I would be absolutely thrilled to be in a relationship with a sweet, good-natured and even, well, ditzy girl. But how can I put something like that in a dating site profile?

I mean, every other guy out there says he wants an intelligent girl. How can I put it if I think intelligence is kind of overrated? I mean, hey, not everyone can be above average in everything!

But I'm finding it challenging to find a way to say, "You can be kinda dumb, as long as you're sweet and good-natured" in my profile.

I wouldn't turn my nose up at a smart girl or anything, but how could I say that intelligence isn't, you know, a high priority for me in a dating site profile, without inadvertently offending women all across the intelligence spectrum?

I mean, most people think of intelligence as an absolute good, while I think of it as just another trait that some people have, and nobody's perfect, and I value that particular trait less than most other people do.

How can I say on a dating site profile that a girl doesn't have to be, like, a genius or anything?

"...I'd like to find a lady who, while not having to be an "intellectual", nor possessed of advanced degrees, at least isn't play-dough between the ears.

You can be silly, not worldly, ditzy or somewhat unsophisticated.

All I ask, that you not be dumb enough to have voted for the Hildebeest. That'd be a deal breaker, right there."



Or, words to that effect? I think you'd be able to compile the Hate Mail into a Michelle Malkin worthy tome.

I have adventures just by going about my daily business. I'm a magnet for wacky things that happen. But it's kind of hard to explain that in a dating profile.

Some of the best times of my life were things that happened that weren't necessarily planned.

"I like sweet, good-natured women." Simple, to the point yet casts a wide net.

Saying "doesn't gotta be smart" sounds like saying "my standards are low" and I imagine lots more women would pass you over.

Same with belts. I read a short story, think it was by Robert Benchley, about a guy nagged by his wife to get a new belt. Reluctantly goes to the haberdasher, and gets a new belt, supposedly "mouse gray". Finds that hordes of mice are following him. Gets home, haggard from the experience, and his wife says, "nah, it's more like battleship gray to me. Try wearing it to work tomorrow." So he does, walks down Fifth Avenue, and hears a mighty rumbling, and sees a fleet of battleships headed towards him.

Couldn't find the story on the 'net; guess it's still under copyright. It was a hoot.

I think I'm probably mainly concerned about the Dunning-Kruger effect, here. We all want to think we're better than average, especially when it comes to intelligence.

Fifteen minutes, I can run four blades, any size short of a machete, easily.

I have a killer power washer machine, too. Damn shame right now, is I have to fabricate, from raw aluminum & steel stock, a control system & lever for the choke and throttle settings.

Factory ones simply fell apart into less than components, and replacements are impossible to find.

I will design their replacements, cut, drill, grind and tap the threads, so as to make the new ones better than new.

The interaction with each customer is likely to eat up as much of your time as sharpening a single blade. Set up a multiple blade menu from $20 to $40. I assume the efficiency would go way up for you having multiple blades as a group.

Oh for fvck's sake! Somebody...anybody...put this culture out of its misery. How we can survive with this kind of pathetic display of anti-masculinity is beyond me. Do these "men" think that being a metrosexual weeny is going to get them laid? And if so, what kind of woman is their ideal?

806 Maybe this could be the way of making the antifa see reason:
The logic of Robespierre, Stalin, Pol Pot or Hitler relied on drawing absurd equivalences in order to justify violence.

But your movement does that as well. You equate wanting to preserve an historical monument with murdering people. And you use that to justify violence.

Therefore, aren't you in danger of becoming something imbalanced... grotesque?

I'd talk to BLM as well, but I think they are too racist to want to reason with the likes of me.

We have a sharpener guy who walks around the neighborhood a few times every summer with a pushcart. It has a slow, distinctive, almost melancholy bell that chimes as he walks. People act like it's the ice cream truck.

808 He said that after sitting down with Mr. Ranco, they both agreed that "advocating or even expressing apathy towards sexual assault is affront to all victims and a line that simply cannot be uncrossed."

If they want to fire the guy for his retarded tweet then that's fine but to bring up a bullshit excuse like this is intellectually offensive. I'm willing to bet that if you had tapes of any 30 minute span of office banter in there you'd hear lots of "apathy" towards sexual assault. I'd lay that bet on any lawyer's office in America. There's nothing wrong with that general attitude.

This particular case is not a matter of morals or some general principle about attitudes pertaining to sexual assault. This is about governance and an "officer of the court", not to mention just plain, old stupidity.

That said, Mr. Rancor and the rest of his office can blow my dog.

810 I crashed early and now I'm going to be up all night. Sigh. Getting old sucks.

I just checked out RLM's review of "It," both the old TV movie and the new theatrical one.

Never saw the old one, did not read the book... I was past my Stephen King phase by then... his stuff all reads the same after awhile.

One thing Jay said was that there were a bunch of crappy TV movies and mini-series of Stephen King books in the 70s and 80s, and none of them were scary.

Beg to differ, "Salem's Lot" scared the shit out of me. Just thinking of Ralphie Glick scratching on the window still gives me the willies.

Hey Jim! You could definitely go higher on the prices. I would easily pay you $10/knife and would love to have someone nearby who could do that. There are some things that lots of people can't do well--knife sharpening is one, taping drywall another. Not surprised you're seeing an increase in demand!

Then back to the bars to write rewrite the press release in their own words, followed by an open bar.

873 I don't see what the point is in citing the 4 commie quotes. All four are at least close to things which conservatives have sometimes said. E.g., the 4th is a common worry, that capitalist societies will breed populations whose values are incompatible with keeping capitalism. Lots of people have said that, and you'd have a hell of a time proving, empirically, that they're wrong. (That's the only one I'm inclined to accept, without serious qualification.)

"[T]he consciousness of men that determines their existence", which the first denies, is something many people do believe. It's implicit in most talk of "the red pill." And in much I see both here and on other conservative sites. (OTOH, it's not universal, we Thomists reject it too, though not for Marx's reasons.)

The 2nd is, unless understood as a tautology (and thus trivial) very widespread, that value lies in utility, and derives from labor. I recall a torrent of abuse directed, from the right, at a column arguing that value is subjective, despite the fact that the article was based on a point of Hayek's.

The third is at least a close parallel to the notion - common in Reagan's day - that democracies don't fight one another. (Sustainable only if one defines "democracy" so as to make this, too, almost tautological. But that didn't keep people on our side from saying it.)
