    Hello. It's nice to hear from you. 35? Neat. America needs critical thinking! Thanks.You're right. We should go around punching people but please be sure to express disapproval the next time a racist makes national news for something dumb and violent. That's all.

    in a utilitarian sense, the argument might be that this sort of behavior makes it really, really easy for trump's propaganda machine to paint their opponents as all the same.

    guys, please differentiate: pngs may be better for flowcharts, but using them for, say, photographs, makes no sense and will only blow up file size. jpgs can be great if used appropriately, artifacts only rly come up if you overdo the compression.
