Take It In: 'Vape' Is The Oxford Dictionaries Word Of The Year - NPR
The Cosby Show - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic — re: rape allegations and respectability politics
"The heart of the matter is this: A defender of Bill Cosby must, effectively, conjure a vast conspiracy, created to bring down one man, seemingly just out of spite. And people will do this work of conjuration, because it is hard to accept that people we love in one arena can commit great evil in another." - Victor Ganata
"It is hard to believe that Bill Cosby is a serial rapist because the belief doesn't just indict Cosby, it indicts us. It damns us for drawing intimate conclusions about people based on pudding-pop commercials and popular TV shows. It destroys our ability to lean on icons for our morality. And it forces us back into a world where seemingly good men do unspeakably evil things, and this is just the chaos of human history." - Victor Ganata
Taking a few bricks out of the whole "celebrity = virtue" construct is fine with me. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
I had a similar conversation to that in your first pullquote with the Jian Ghomeshi thing: "So, you trust one man more than you trust three women, but you will grant that eight women are more believable than one man." - DJF
That moment when you finally awaken to the realization that dwelling on something that already happened and can't be undone or redone is totally stupid and unproductive and unnecessarily crazy making.
this realisation doesn't always change behaviour. "I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can't stop eating peanuts." - Orson Welles - Big Joe Silence
That moment when you realize you've had many such moments. - Todd Hoff
Plus, dwelling on it may mean you'll be better prepared if the situation reoccurs. /not-helpful - Andrew C (✔)

Lost in Rawlsland - NY Times - Opinionator (via Junot Diaz on FB)
"Unfortunately, mainstream political philosophy is lagging behind the times in its refusal to admit the significance of this colonial and imperial past, the way it has shaped the modern world, and its implications for conceptualizing justice, both nationally and globally. Here in the United States, for example, we have the absurd situation of a huge philosophical literature on social justice in which racial injustice — the most salient of American injustices — is barely mentioned." - Victor Ganata

RT @JRehling Fox: "Why did America waste money landing on a comet?" Scientist: "This is a European mission." Fox: "Why didn't America get there first?"
Whenever someone in tech declares "X is dead", I think of Zaphod Beeblebrox. "But sir, it was on the sub-ether radio this morning, it said you were dead." "Yeah that's right, I just haven't stopped moving yet."
"...Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us?" Nietzsche - WarLord
That's about the only phrase from that book that amused me significantly. - Victor Ganata

Posters for imagined movie sequels -
The first thing that comes to mind when someone from the U.S. uses #WeCanLandOnACometButWeCant is that that's so typically appropriative :D
...because we can't land on a comet. We can't even deploy a payload to low earth orbit anymore. - Victor Ganata
I assumed the "we" meant humanity. I always assume the "we" means humanity. Because I myself sure as heck can't land on a comet. - bentley
Well, "we" can deploy payloads to low earth orbit if by "we" you mean entities within the U.S.; just not NASA on its own. And Elon Musk doesn't even rely on second-hand Russian engines to do it... But, yeah, worth pointing out that this was an ESA mission, not a NASA one. - Walt Crawford
Dang, when I made my post yesterday (, I didn't realize it was a Twitter thing going on. - Stephen Mack
