    Rick was so startled that the book flew from his hands to the bench at the foot of the bed.

    As an accounting manager, I was constantly having to push back on managers who wanted to create new accounting codes that were far too specific in scope. They couldn’t see how cumbersome that would make a financial statement when almost every expense got its own line instead of fitting into a more general category.

    Yeah, I know. Not interesting to non-accountants.

    Had the same thing happen years ago with a Corningware plate. It landed flat-bottomed and it was as though it exploded. My toddler daughter got a half dozen cuts, as did my legs. We got rid of the Corningware.

    I hope, at least, that the picture was different each time.

    Ok, I’ve now seen people attribute a “Clarence” commercial to Volkswagen, Honda and Toyota.

    Are you still pushing that old chestnut? The divisions on the Civil Rights Act were almost entirely regional. There was NOT division by party. Northern Democrats strongly supported it. Southern Republicans strongly opposed it. After it passed, the conservative Southern Democrats moved to the Republican party over the next decade.

    This discussion is not worth having. If all of our thoughts and actions are governed entirely by physics and chemistry, then there are no actions or policies to be made on that basis. None of us has any choice in believing it or not. Those choices are entirely predetermined.

    Likewise, it can’t affect public policy because it’s already predetermined whether it would or wouldn’t be enacted. The only rational approach is to base our actions and policies on the presumption that there is free will.

    My personal opinion is that chemistry and physics influence behavior but that there are too many factors in play for it to be entirely deterministic.

    It’s knowledge of Nab’s posting history. Most of his contributions skew toward far right wing politics and/or fundamentalist christianity with a handful of anti-science comments thrown in. It gets tiresome.

    I’m guessing they’re included in the broader category.

    Once things were resolved with the contractor, the home owners’ association told them their plans violated the HOA rules.
