@typingmonkey the house is in recess because Pelosi ordered it so yesterday
(to be clear: I don't endorse their economic worldview or their enthusiasm for purchasing the outcomes they want from the government. I'm well aware that none of their actions are going magically fix the situation on the streets. It is, however, a pretty big deal that they're committed to an aggressive if normal liberal program. There's no inherent reason they'd have to be, given Big Business.)
We've gotten pretty powerful (mainstream liberal) messages of support for these protests from every CEO in my Megacorp all the way to the biggest of business daddies.
They supplied recommended reading and viewing; expressed outrage and solidarity with protestors and our CNN crews, and pledged money, WarnerMedia is joining the blackouts, and they've increased funding and visibility for diversity and inclusion efforts.
In major corporate america, the culture war is over.
@swearengen candidates, in no order:
- The Nice Guys
- Mad Max: Fury Road
Moonrise Kingdom is the only Wes Anderson movie I haven't seen, but I love all of his others.
@swearengen these lists are all over the place, and that's why I love lists of movies! :)
There are six movies between your lists I'd consider for my version of such a list!
@bdimcheff “none of these things are real, so it’s easy to understand why people wouldn’t have heard about them.”
@Cornellbox and that's why I have divested myself of facebook to the maximum extent possible, and encourage others to do the same!

A long shot: does anyone here have experience retrofitting a multi-zone HVAC setup into an existing house? With Heather's business going in on the ground floor and me trying to work upstairs, it feels like we need two zones. It's probably hugely expensive, but I guess I don't want to prematurely rule anything out.
@dgoings I managed to mostly get the tubes attached through force of will, violent sailorish cursing, and the employment of a hand trowel and broom to sweep cellulose piles around in order to find boards.
the seals are not air-tight, but it'll have to do until I figure out a more professional approach here.
@Cornellbox it's a collector's item now!
