BC, Alex, and the Doc are back after taking a few weeks off due to BC getting a new job and being exhausted.
There’s really only one true topic this week. The complete and utter enfarkening that is the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
I was fortunate enough to go to Christian schools, where doodling of any kind in textbooks was prohibited. In grade school, you’d be sent to the principal’s office, your parents would be called, and you’d probably have to write an apology essay (most likely involving a Bible verse). In high school, you’d have to pay to replace the textbook ($25-50, which was a lot for kids who only had summer jobs) your parents would be notified, and if you were lucky, they wouldn’t take your textbook away and make you share with someone else.

God bless y’all who toil in the schools. I have a 7th grader this year, and he would be so embarrassed by “boobs, penis, vagina” in class — but he would laugh his arse off the rest of the year about it.
Also, can I buy Alex a new mic. The clipping is making me crazy — well, crazier.
apologies, bourbon – there was supposed to be a question mark after “new mic?”
Life changes kept me from listening (and commenting) or a while, but just yesterday im all caught up.
Looking forward to the next one.
By the way, while waiting for the next Daniel Gibbs novel (Deception Fleet series) to drop, I finally started Sword of Truth series… on account being available on Kindle for free (Unlimited) or nearly free ($1.99). Halfway through book four and now Im feeling bogged down… Does it get better?
And i typed my name wrong because mobile device…. Sigh. I didn’t have things problem on Windows Mobile…
Oh, Forgot. Gsmes: Finished up Chernobylite, which did not live up to hype of intro and tutorial (esp to scratch that STALKER itch) , but still fun, in the end. Worth $20. And also DishonoredLoop… er, I mean Deathloop. Lots of elements borrowed from previous titles, but its so well done, one hardly notices. Next up is Halo Infinite. Soon.
Some day there will be another episode. Some day. We must not lose hope. Despair is a sin, as Jerry Pournelle often reminded us.
(I am but a sinner….)
I miss my favorite podcast
We can’t have CJN Speaks take over, can we?
