    I picked up A History of Greece by John Bury yesterday (originally published in 1900). It covers Greece up until about 300 B.C., and the author intentionally made it a political history. For the...

    I don't mind it. It's hard to swallow a name change in a sport with so much history, but after a couple years it'll settle in. It sounds like they went with something with a bit of character, not...

    I suspect it's more a case of every poster here agrees that the death of those thousands of children was a horrific abuse, a terrible thing to have happened. Nobody has any counter to that, nobody...

    Today we had a Butternut Squash that was on the larger side and that my wife didn't want to mash again, so I ended up making my first Butternut Squash soup.

    I'm of the maxim that the more flavour...

    I've definitely let the possibility in that the life I'm living just isn't that stimulating anymore. To me, boredom isn't just a mental state, so to speak, but a physiological state we're in when our...

    This is a good way of putting it, and more or less where I'm at too. I've commented to a few people in the last few months that I feel well equipped to deal with the challenges of the pandemic; I...

    You've stated a lot of my feelings on the subject a little more eloquently than I can (or maybe have the time for). I think I'm pretty much at a point where I've fully internalized the experiential...

    I think it's more a matter of how you frame self-interested behaviour, rather than it being 'good selfishness'.

    I read it all.

    Some true mundane observations. None were news to me.

    And a bunch of mumbo jumbo BS.

    What of value is there in it?

    Exactly. Things will get slowly, and steadily worse. And in some parts of the world it's already a serious problem.
