* Containment: Look, I know it's a made up disease and also I'm not an epidemiologist, though I am a life long plague watcher. Either the authorities in this show have to be lying about the "48 hour quarantine" or the writers are not making sense. How do I know? You need at least two full life cycles of the disease since the last person is cured or dead for diseases like ebola. Given how fast and deadly this bioweapon is meant to be, I'm betting they'd want a lot longer. Even best case scenario (no one has it now and no one new is infected in the 48 hour time span they project, no reputable public health authority would lift the quarantine at that point. I saw that for the second episode they amended "100% fatality" to 100% so far, which is an improvement, but I'm still side eyeing the original statement given the sample size. I've got some fundamental questions about the disease design, which I'm willing to let them hand wave by it being not a natural mutation, but I'm still bothered by the contagion being all over that family's home, and who else did they come into contact with. How can they be sure they completely sanitized that house? I also want to know a lot more about the bioweapon design part. For weapons to use against an enemy, governments generally choose something either very contagious, but that you can immunize your own people against/treat if your emergency services are prepared (like small pox), or something very deadly but with a lower R after initial release (like anthrax). Super contagious and deadly and on a viral vector that spreads the way flu spreads? That's an out right Doomesday scenario. Not kill the enemy and maybe some of the releasing side die too, but they inherit the earth type stuff, but everyone dies. for that you'd need very good microbiologists who want the world to end and likely level 4 containment equipped labs. It's a terrible idea, and the quality of equipment they'd need and high quality willing scientists and money means I have questions about having all of those things in one place. This besides my serious questions about the show writers hints as to origin and this their underlying political agenda. I also have other questions, like, they know in episode 2 what they are dealing with and late stage patients will infect people aggressively. Why doesn't the cop have proper hood and gloves by now? Why are they letting him handle potentially infectious people and objects with his porous leather cop gloves instead of disposable gloves, preferably in two layers as one uses for a serious hemorrhagic? Fuck is going on at the CDC that they don't know basic infection prevention protocols? And these are just the ones off the top of my head. I know, it's all nitpicky, but it bugs me. I'm an amateur. I'd love to know what pros think.

It's Squirrel's favorite thing I make. I'm pretty sure I haven't made it in a decade, but he still talks about it. I had spring roll wraps, so I decided to make it as there are four of us. He came out of his cave for dinner. After, we went through some of my scents so we could find out want Djinni could both smell and enjoy wearing to give him a better idea of his scent profile.

* I got a chance to see Magic Mike XXL, and I took it. I was not impressed with the original. I loved the dancing and the backstage business with the ensemble talking and prepping, but I the actually plot with "The Kid," his sister, and Mike's courtship of her was like watching paint dry. I'd heard so many good things about the sequel, particularly feminist analysis of it, that given the chance to watch it free, I gave it a shot. OMG! It was all the good parts with the boys backstage as an ensemble, hot dancing, and somehow managed to be every bit as feminist as I was promised despite most of the main cast being male. It was really respectful of woman, was inclusive of body types and women of various ages, and the new African American characters were kick ass. I'd love to see them foregrounded if they make another sequel. This is the movie I wanted to see the first time, although I would still like more gay and/or bi male inclusion. (There was LGB inclusion this time and possibly T, depending on how that one person identifies, but I'd like to see it more woven in, if that makes sense). This was so much better and i had a fine time watching.

* I’m going to reiterate my belief that Billy Bones and Flint is endgame, whatever happens with Silver. What would I best like? Threesome. But I’d not wager a groat on it. I’m still in the Billy doesn’t know exactly what he’s feeling and he’s deeply conflicted about that and the whole Gates murder issue. I think there is going to at some point be a confrontation that turns physical that ends in a kiss, though I could be mistaken as to circumstance. I will not venture a guess as to timeline. Flint/Bones just makes sense character wise, narrative wise, and fits with treasure Island, because that’s a good way to get from here to there. I’ve always thought so, but particularly strongly since Billy’s return in season two.

Silver/Flint may or may not be a tease. I’ll be disappointed if it is, but I won’t be angry unless they never give us Flint/Bones either. To me the Vane/Eleanor level mess that Silver/Flint would be is very much a thing I’d like to watch. Hell, I’d love if it paralleled that particular kind of love and war vibe they had, preferably with the same degree of explicitness, but I want Flint/Bones for the end game because anything short would feel like a cop out.

* Wait a Minute.... When the officer decided to put Sandra Bland under arrest for assaulting a police officer, she was still in the car. Her refusal to put out her cigarette was the reason he decided to arrest her for assaulting a police officer. I am no fan of second hand smoke, being a lung patient, but it sure didn't look like assault to me. I also still think it is wildly unfair that you can be charged for resisting arrest because the officer did not tell you you are under arrest. Was she supposed to read his mind? He had told her specifically that he was citing, not arresting her, yet he starts screaming at her about not getting out before he tells her he's arresting her and he refuses to tell her that he is arresting her for assaulting an officer for smoking in her car. I still think they should be legally required to tell you they are arresting you and why.

* A volcano has erupted in Java, forcing tens of thousand people to evacuate nearby areas. It sounds like the government has set up temporary shelters. As terrible as it is three people died when their roofs collapsed under the weight of ash and gravel, I'm glad so many were able to make it to safety. Best of luck to the survivors. I haven't seen estimates of how bad the damage is or how many homes were destroyed. I will let you know when I know about relief efforts.

* Also, there was yet another coal industry spill poisoning a river in West Virginia and a related scandal with a politician still in the pocket of his former employer having repeatedly prevented that coal company ever having to pay for massive poisoning and polluting of water sources, let alone stop poisoning citizens in wild life. It's big and important, but the amount of work I'd have to do to present it properly makes me tired just thinking about it.

* Anyone surprised that Assad has plowed through the cease fire deadline still bombing and strafing fleeing civilians? Anyone? just the Russians still pretending to be surprised, huh? Anyway, they are still using tanks and artillery in places like Homs. 145 civilians were murdered yesterday. Over a hundred were murdered today. 9000-11000 civilians have been murdered since Assad started to make war on his own people.

* Zimmerman's lawyers gave a peculiar press conference suggesting that Zimmerman is mentally unstable and that he'd already fled Florida if not the country, then quit. It sounds like other lawyers think this is not only ill advised, but possibly professionally troublesome as it seems to involve violating attorney/client privilege. The prosecution has announced they are giving a press conference within the next few days.

* Santorum dropped out today. The theory is he was expected to lose in his home state of Pennsylvania what with him being wildly unpopular there, so it was better for him in the long term to drop out first. There is a competing theory that it was because his daughter Bella is really sick and he wanted to be with her.

* Romney is now accusing the President of Atheism, as that is the only thing less popular than Islam in a politician with voters. he also was condescending about the war on women. After all, it's all in the heads of silly hysterical women, right? It's not like the Republicans have been passing laws not only allowing, but requiring Doctors to lie to women, taking health care decisions away from women so that politicians and employers can make them for the women; repealing equal pay laws at the state level; and trying to deny women basic health care like cancer screening, right? Oh wait, they have, but what women really want is not things like health care and equal treatment as citizens and human beings, but even bigger tax cuts for the rich! Fuck you Willard Romney. Fuck you, Reince Priebus.

* Mitt Romney also wants you to know that the 14% tax rate he is currently paying is way too high, so you should give up Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Food Stamps, Pell Grants, Head Start and if you are poor pay a higher tax rate so he can pay even less. After all, that is what the "marvelous" Ryan plan he is campaigning for does. why campaign so hard for it and endorse it so glowingly if he doesn't want you to know what's in it.

I notice that they repeat the lie that Romans drank water from lead pipes, even though we know that the sewer pipes were lead, but the drinking water pipes were not. Yes, people used to think that, but archeology has come a long way since then. The only way you'd have gotten lead poison from the water is if you were drinking out of the sewage pipes in preference to water fountains, which is pretty fucking illogical. Romans were extremely careful about keeping feces out of their drinking water in a way that Westerners in general weren't again until the mid to late 19th century. (The Chinese and the Japanese figured out municipal sanitation early in their respective development and maintained it as they went on to make bigger and bigger cities. If you had a choice between drinking water from the 16th century from any city in any country in Eurasia, pick one from Japan or China. I'm not kidding. It's part of the reason the average survival rate for an English family in English cities was 3 generations from arrival to totally wiped out). There was lead used to season wine, so that bit is accurate.

* A two part thing on Machiavelli: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2012/mar/26/machiavelli-prince-power-good-evil http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2012/apr/02/machiavelli-humanism-history-prince

* I think Machiavelli is pretty seriously misunderstood, in part because hardly anyone reads his Discourses on Livy, and in part because most people don't read the Prince carefully. As a result they tend to miss things like context and nuance. He was a patriot who's city state was under constant threat by invading armies. From the Discourses, it's pretty obvious he'd have been happier in a Republic, but his choices were a Princedom or in a subject state. Under those circumstances a strong local ruler with a well run city state was the better choice, hence the Prince. If you read carefully, you'll notice that he favours the people over the nobles and justice where it's possible. He's a pragmatist, though, and picks better over the worst when the best isn't a choice. Don't get me wrong, he says some pretty horrible things, but he also thinks it's a good idea to feed your people and use a citizen army over mercenaries, and a lot of his advise is quite sensible. Hell, if W. had been Machiavellian instead of a neo-con puppet, we'd be better off. Context matters both for the books and within the books. So much is framed as x and y is the best combination of things but if you can only have one, which should you do/be? Anyway, it's not specific to the above, but just my take on Machiavelli himself.

* The TV now turns off normally, I'm guessing there's a loos wire somewhere, but I'm just grateful for it to be working as it's the nicest TV I've had access to my whole life.

* So my current post organization goes loosely like this: Important news and world news on top, followed by political stuff, followed by editorial news related stuff (like Stewart clips or links to other people's rants), followed by science/history/archeology news, my life, books/movies/lighter stuff, dragon cave and other extras. I say loosely, because I make posts in snippets over the course of hours and things get out of order sometimes. Also, lines can be fuzzy. For example, do I put a rant about a book or movie from an LGBTQ justice perspective in with the editorials or the books? I'm still not all that consistent.
