    @clarkgoble My father left the NRA when they started getting crazier in the (late?) 80s, iirc, but has become a member again for things like the magazine. My parents are living in a rural area, my dad works at a gun shop part-time, even. Heh. @tomcat

      @clarkgoble @cgiffard @tomcat I grew up in suburbia but spent a lot of that time with rural hunting culture. I'd love to read more about the history of the organization. I don't recall it being so extreme when young, but of course I was young.

        @sbeebe That was exactly my thought, too. Wow, indeed. @33mhz

          They distort a culture I care about; similar in a way, I suppose, as poachers do. They dominate it with extremism. And political dollars. And LaPierre is just an unbalanced asshole.

            I think I especially hate the NRA since I am pro-gun, but pro-gun control, which they make it hard to be. I suppose, though, that my position is also a moderate one that fucks up their black-and-white rhetoric.

              The NRA makes me want to find a good-n-loud "leftist" t-shirt, hat and maybe some pins, and then wear them to upcoming gun shows.

                I’m by no means an expert, but still would have expected that Luxembourg would be on this list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_ministates I mean, look at this: http://mapfight.appspot.com/us.ri-vs-lu/rhode-island-us-luxembourg-size-comparison

                  Really feeling the itch to learn to play some new songs (or maybe re-learn old ones) on the guitar. Unfortunately, nearly all of the modern metal bands I listen to use various non-standard tuning. Clearly, I just need more guitars--one per tuning. :P

                    Can we impeach Bannon?

                      I’m a metalhead. Metal is universal. As a result, I listen to bands from all over the world. In fact, I just bought an LP that added a new country of origin to my collection: Persefone from Andorra. :)

                        If he were still alive, what cabinet position would Morton Downey, Jr be up for today?

                          @jws The email app has a "stuck" badge of 1 nearly all of the time for me. I go the VIP view, and it says there's one unread there. I go in and hit the 'Filter to unread', and it's empty. I can only hope iOS 11 addresses this.

                            @33mhz Yes, it does! :) I'm also not getting push notifications here lately. :\

                              My phone also just lost logins for Instagram and both Chimp apps (so far). Meanwhile, my MBP froze. I closed the lid (out of frustration) to try to make it sleep. Then it rebooted all on its own. Not a great tech night all of a sudden.

                                Tried to share a link here, both from Riposte and Chimp. Error [photos.app.net]

                                  For the remainder of the day, if I need to say the word "circle," I will pronounce it kirsull. The hard- vs soft-C thing is very familiar to me because of my last name (and, if I prefer, my username). Despite all reasonable expectations, it has a soft C.

                                    @jws The slower feedback (also in the Xcode console & editor, in addition to build & install) might be the most frustrating part for me, as well. @manton

                                      @manton While I don't have any regrets about having used Swift daily for a long time now (since about two months after its introduction, actually), I am feeling about ready for it to settle down. :)
