Also my apologises to the door-to-door salesman who knocked on my door with 10 mins to go. "Dude. World Cup is on. Not interested" #AUSvCHI
Did you answer the door or yell from the couch? - Slippy: Potato Croquette

Opened the door. Then slammed it - Johnny from iPhone

Hmm. As much as I'd love to be able to see the cup here, I'd personally vote more for Australia. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'd think Australia would be preferable in this situation as long as they're still interested in hosting it. - John (bird whisperer)
Yeah, I guess it would depend on whether they do still want to. Assuming yes, they've got robust infrastructure, good facilities, and a flexible enough tourist industry to absorb large numbers of visiting people for a short time. I think here, or there, the biggest question would be whether the sponsors would get all of the concessions they've been demanding recently. - Jennifer Dittrich
We're ready and willing. - Johnny from iPhone
Or maybe it will come down to whether the US or Australia can come up with a better bribe? :-P - John (bird whisperer)
Good thinking, sadly. Of course, the tweet has been deleted and everyone is MOVE ALONG NOTHING TO SEE HERE right now. - Jennifer Dittrich

Even though I don't know much about soccer, I kind of wish I could take a vacation and go to a bar to watch all the games and start drinking at 9 am.
Football is 99% passion/feels. You don't really need to know the rules, just passionately yell about "the worst injustice in history" when a decision goes against your team. - Johnny from iPhone
I've loved football since I was born. I pretty much know all the rules etc but I don't care. Football isn't about logic. It's about love, art, passion, feeling, rawness, blood, tears, joy, fear, insane beauty and heroes and villains. Check your logical brain with your hat and just get swept up in it. - Johnny from iPhone
Oh, I do enjoy watching the game, but I'm still trying to figure out the terminology and the tactics and the strategies, and I know nothing about the teams and the players and the rivalries and the histories. Though, as you say, I suppose I don't really need to know any of that to enjoy watching the games and having a few drinks :D - Victor Ganata

Unforeseen alliances: now that ISIS have taken over several major Iraqi cities, we are de facto on the same side as Iran and Bashar al-Assad. Well, then.
How do you figure that ? The ISIL is trying to overthrow al-Assad. They are Sunni they are aligned against the Alawite's and Shia. - Eric Logan
We have the same interest as Iran and Bashar al-Assad in not letting ISIS take over any more cities. - Victor Ganata
I am sure we will be giving lots of moral support and encouragement to al -Maliki. We have been arming this same faction to fight Syria inadvertently at a minimum. We shall see what transpires now I guess. - Eric Logan
We're doing more than sending moral support and encouragement. We're arming and supplying Iraq's armed forces. - Victor Ganata
Not today we are not. I would be shocked if they don't let al -Maliki fall. - Eric Logan
al-Maliki has been complaining for months that we are arming the insurgents that just took over Mosul. - Eric Logan
Iraqi Prime Minister al-Maliki: “Iraq’s violence originates from Saudi Arabia” ~ Baghdad calls on US, Europe to stop arming terrorists in Syria. http://syrianfreepress.wordpress.com/2014... - Eric Logan
Well, we've already armed and supplied Iraq's armed forces (but unfortunately, ISIS successfully raided Mosul's armory) and we have on-going arms and supply deals in place with al-Maliki's gov't. I'm skeptical we're going to just let ISIS run roughshod all over Iraq (or let Iran invade to protect Iraqi Shias should al-Maliki's gov't fall.) While we're probably not going to re-invade, it seems like there are other things we're already poised to do. - Victor Ganata
Sell them some weapons sure. We have also been reluctant to do that recently lots of requests have been hampered, denied or slowed as the Sunni insurgency has taken over other Iraqi cities - Eric Logan
The fault in the OP is the notion there is only two sides. - Johnny from iPhone
Well, sure, no war is ever perfectly binary, and this is more a convergence of multiple conflicts, many of which are long-standing, but you can't really deny that the U.S. has the same interest as Iran and Bashar al-Assad in not letting ISIS take over Iraq and Syria. For now, at least. #CantTrussIt - Victor Ganata
We've ignored the religious reality of the various Sunni Shia sects in the middle east from the beginning. OTOH The secret sauce of the "Iraq surge" (pat pending) was arming the Sunni to fight AQ, We've missed the obvious since Saudi Wahhabists blew up World Trade Center - WarLord
A criminal prosecutor and a defendant in a trial has the same desire to not get into a fatal car accident on the way to the courthouse but I would hardly call that an alliance ;) - Johnny from iPhone
You can't really characterize blind flailing as an alliance... It's more directionless reaction to events that should have been obvious outcomes to past directionless flailing - WarLord
Fair enough, "alliance" is hyperbolic, but (1) it's probably a good thing we're not going to bomb Iran right now and (2) this makes it more unlikely that we're going to help the Syrian rebels try to overthrow al-Assad. - Victor Ganata

Just how much of a difference can a programming language really make? #Swift #hype
well, it depends: are you harnessing its strengths or working against them? language typically enforce usage patterns. - Heart Attack
To current programmers or those about to learn? - Johnny from iPhone
I guess what I really mean to ask is how revolutionary can a programming language really be? - Victor Ganata
well, I suppose that every major language had revolutionary aspects at the time it was introduced. - Heart Attack
That relies pretty much on what people do with it. You can set up all the pins you want but if you don't get people to knock them down, it's worthless. If by somehow "refreshing" the scene and driving new people into the space causes a new style or breed of programmers/programs, then it could be. - Johnny from iPhone

Watching the Belmont Stakes and realizing I have absolutely no clue as to how horse race betting works.
Take away the number you first thought of - Pete
Let's say it's odds of 5:1. I'm the 5, you're the one. If you give me $1 and you horse wins, I give you back $5. - Johnny from iPhone
So what is like the trifecta, superfecta, exacta? - Mary Carmen
And when the odds are 4/5 does that mean I give you a $5 and you give me $20. - Mary Carmen
Looks like trifecta = get first three horses right - Pete
I just looked it up....interesting....and wow, definitely guess work. - Mary Carmen
Trifecta is if you pick the first 3 horses that cross the line. That's harder so you get more. You can pick a multi which means the 3 horses you pick can finish in any order. That's less hard so the odds are less but still more than a single horse. You can pick a multi which means you can pick lots of horses and if any combination of that finishes in your chosen range (trifecta, quinella etc) then you win but that's easier so you either have to bet more or win less - Johnny from iPhone
Now I am fascinated as to how the oddsmakers work their magic. - Mary Carmen
The 4/5 odds are an easy way of showing the odds for a really favourite horse, which is called "on". It assumes you've dropped the 1 and you are just showing the fraction. So odds of 4/5 on means for every dollar you give me, I'll give you your dollar back plus 80c. If it was 1/5 on, I would give you $1.20 back etc - Johnny from iPhone
Funny Story: my mum and her friend once ran a fixed priced book for the Melbourne Cup for the girls in her boarding school. She took bets, calculated odds etc. This was actually highly illegal :) My grandfather use to own race horses - Johnny from iPhone

I guess we're just supposed to get used to shootings every day now?
It's now self-fulfilling. Every shooting strengthens each side of the argument. On the gun control side it's another reason to push for control. On the pro gun side, it's another reason why members need to carry, to protect themselves from this type of event. - Johnny from iPhone

What do YOU call the garden power tool that has a plastic monofilament that spins to cut grass and weeds?
Edger. Weedwhacker. Depends on who I'm talking to. - Anika
Whipper snipper (per my wife). I grew up calling it a weed whacker. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

So apparently there's a hair salon called Whipper Snippers http://m.yelp.ca/biz... - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Trimmer or weedeater - Walt Crawford
Walt reminds me that I used to call them trimmers, but have since changed to weed whacker. - Betsy
Weed whacker. - rönin
Satan's tallywhacker - Spidra Webster
How do Brits say strimmer but Canada & Australia both use whipper snipper? (US proclivity for weed eater makes sense because that's the name the Texas inventor used). - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
We call it an edger too. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Strimmer. - Mark H
Ankle-striper. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
John Stuart Mill, aka "The Kantklipper". - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Weed eater. - CAJ hates pants
Weed eater most of the time. Occasionally I'll call it a weed whacker; most of those times, I'll pronounce "whacker" the way Stewie pronounces "whip" on Family Guy (or the way the pre-Hank Hill character in Beavis and Butthead pronounced "whack", as in "I know you're the boys who've been whackin' it in my trailer") - COMPLICATED MR.

RT @starwars: BREAKING: Lupita Nyong'o & Gwendoline Christie have joined the cast of #StarWarsVII! http://strw.rs/T7iXlc http://t.co/C9fQJWV0WY
If Lupita Nyong'o is playing who she's been rumored to be playing, that's worth the price of admission for me right there. Just, take my money already. Gwendoline Christie is just an awesome bonus at that point :D - Jennifer Dittrich
That's why I didn't freak out with "OMG SAUSAGE FEST" when the photo was released before. Casting is rarely finalised at preliminary read throughs and negotiations/schedulings are usually still ongoing - Johnny from iPhone
I am so excited about this! - joey
Not me though. *sigh* - Mo Kargas
I mean, it's still 4 actors out of 20, so yay for twice as many and 3 more than the original, but shit that bar was low. This is more specific excitement about the actor and the character :) - Jennifer Dittrich
^^ Yes. - joey
^^^Double yes. - Spidra Webster
According to imdb, there are 15 cast members. Take out Daniels, Baker and Mayhew who play creatures/droids and that leaves 12. Take out the original 3 and you're down to 9. Yes, 3 new out of 9 new isn’t great but what I'm hoping for is quality. Until we see the script, we don’t know what roles any announced actor plays and their importance to the story. I'm hoping that the essential... more... - Johnny
I mean, I share the hope too, I'm just pretty jaded about how Disney treats the female characters in what they consider 'male' series - especially when it comes to the ancillary marketing and merchandising. - Jennifer Dittrich

Eric - For You Wack MCs!
Trying to make up my mind about Iggy Azalea.
I'm not a fan. It just all strikes me as posing and appropriation, and she's thrown around a lot of racist bullshit in her twitter timeline and been all offended when people call her on it. - Jennifer Dittrich
Oh, you know, the rainbow of colors. Casual racist stereotypes, outright racist stuff about Mexicans, Asians, blacks, Native Americans, lesbians, gays, etc. And then, of course, she deletes all of the posts and acts all surprised. There's a run down of a small percentage here: http://piggyazalea.tumblr.com/post... - Jennifer Dittrich
I watched some radio interviews. She definitely speaks her mind and answers question directly. I don't know much about her background, but I tend to give rappers a bit of a pass on what they say because rappers in general are non-PC. I guess it goes with the new crop of Hiphop that seems to come from unexpected places that I'm trying to understand. For the most part though, the subject matter in her songs is mostly been there, done that. - Eric - For You Wack MCs!
Isn't most (commercial) hip hop posing and appropriation? - Johnny from iPhone
Yeah, nevermind. Be fans of whatever you'd like. I'm so not up for having that discussion if it isn't obvious. - Jennifer Dittrich
It is. In fact, I just don't get a lot of it anymore. #old - Eric - For You Wack MCs!
Just saw that Tumblr, she does stay reckless on Twitter. - Eric - For You Wack MCs!
I'm getting tired of Instagram rappers. - Eric - For You Wack MCs!
Not denying she says some crazy shit and strays into racism often but the posing in commercial hip hop is kind of a foundation of the genre. - Johnny from iPhone
Somewhat, sure. Big Bank Hank could not drive you off in a fresh OJ, because he was washing them at the car wash when he recorded Rapper's Delight. I was just trying to understand if Iggy was really a rapper or like a pop artist who rapped, of which there are plenty these days. She says she's a rapper, put herself out as that, so I guess I'm trying to figure out if she's really Hiphop or not. - Eric - For You Wack MCs!
Snoop Dogg is on the iPods of 12 year old girls (Katy Perry) and Missy Elliott did a track with a British X-Factor group Little Mix. The pure rapper tag is so deluded that you can't really tell definitively anymore. In the end, though, a good track is a good track. - Johnny from iPhone
Yeah, no. There's hip-hop the community and culture and hip-hop the commodity and while there's overlap at the most visible scales, there's definitely still a difference. - Victor Ganata
Iggy Azalea strikes me as someone who likes using "I'm just keeping it real" to excuse her blatant racism and homophobia. - Victor Ganata
OK, I finally found just some straight flow from a cypher shot for the XXL Freshmen 2012. http://www.xxlmag.com/xxl-fre... She has some lyrics if she wants to, but how she pronounces everything she's rapping is a little off. It's like a mix of south and east coast. - Eric - For You Wack MCs!
Yes... But she is Australian. She lived in the south for 5 years and that is where she learned her craft from her friends there so of course her accent would not be "pure". - Johnny from iPhone
Not all country stars are from the south but they sing with that same twang. - Johnny from iPhone
It's kind of funny that country is having the same "what is authentic?" dilemma these days. - Victor Ganata
It's been having that for a long time. Garth Brooks drove a very deep wedge. In the end of the day, if you like something (and the fact you like something won't damage whatever rep or cred you are trying to protect) then you like it. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm not an afficionado of country, but I think Bro-country takes the existential crisis to another level :D - Victor Ganata

Hating Women Was His Disease - Observer http://observer.com/2014... - I don't buy this, to be honest. I don't think virulent misogyny is a mental illness. I think it's a moral choice.
"Virulent misogyny" doesn't make sense as a mitigating circumstance for crimes like assault, rape, or murder. - Victor Ganata
I don't buy that any more than I buy into "I'm too rich to understand consequences." - Jennifer Dittrich
Judging by the ending, I guess the author is simply trying to soft-pedal the suggestion that virulent misogynists should be locked up. - Victor Ganata
He didn't only hate women, he wanted to possess them and hated everyone in his way. It's not a mental illness anymore than religiousness stemming from schizophrenia is in-and-of itself a mental illness. - Heather

You might want to reconsider that donation to the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter http://www.washingtonpost.com/news... via @washingtonpost
I'm good, but it isn't a bad thing to point out that no, this isn't getting RR back on television. The 'is it worthy' or 'is it too famous' for Kickstarter bit feels like it needs to go on bingo cards for press coverage of larger campaigns. (I'm not sure anybody at the WaPo has a leg to stand on with regards to education-for-profit critiques.) - Jennifer Dittrich
"In other words, when Reading Rainbow began in 1983, the big question was, "how do we get kids interested in reading?" By 2009, that question had become, "how do we teach kids to read, period?"" -- can't wait to see what the question will be in another three decades then!!! - Andrew C (✔)
I thought that was a bit odd of a tack to take anyway - it isn't as if illiteracy wasn't a large problem during the run of RR on television. RR was always designed to address the 'and then what?' after kids have the very basic skills and may or may not have a way to be engaged in reading moving forward. - Jennifer Dittrich
Georgia can read. She's not crazy about reading. RR sounds like a worthy endeavour. Plus, the whole "Silver Bullet" concept that one program will or should fix it all should die in a fire. - Johnny from iPhone
Helen would say there's a big difference between the mechanical skill of reading and the 'habit and joy' of reading. And Johnny is right, too often there is a sense that One Programme will fix it, or one approach - usually one which does the opposite! - Pete
Yeah, that's why I thought it was an odd argument. I get their point that this isn't the same show that aired for so many decades on television, and isn't non-profit. There's definitely some nostalgia there, but it seems like something interesting and worthwhile in and of itself. - Jennifer Dittrich

My first response to #YesAllWomen was "I don't think I do" (as opposed to Not All Men). Now I'm struck by the soul crushing concept that despite trying to not be a misoginist, I'm forever subjected to that label... just like all women are subjected to misogyny in all it's forms. Am I understanding it correctly?
(Excuse my awkward explanation.) - Johnny from iPhone
As I understand it- which may mean I don't- it is more that misogyny is embedded in so much of society that it is hard to escape it, as either supporter / enabler / victim. It's a structural argument. It requires work not to repeat the pattern, conscious awareness of bias. - Pete
I know my own failings in this area. Part of being the father of a son is helping him avoid the same, without making him feel bad / evil / doomed. I think the hashtag message is to listen to what women say about their experiences, and try to understand- not to centre it on your experience / feelings. - Pete

I don't know if what i'm feeling (the crushing trapped feeling) is a small fraction of insight into what it may feel like to be a women trapped inside institutionalised misogyny. Either way, hopefully my eyes have been opened to aspects I can change in me, my nephews and Georgia - Johnny from iPhone

You're a good person in a system that's not always fair to the ones you love, often in ways that are hard to see or easily dismissed. Even having someone, or people, willing to listen is the greatest gift :) - Jennifer Dittrich
Some men are active proponents of the system or are actively misogynistic and aggressive (and I've encountered plenty of these); many more are just passive recipients of a stacked deck and the choice is in what we do with that. The guilt of those of us with privilege changes nothing, but anger and action and understanding helps. - joey
