    In jail, the homeless man will get three (totally safe and not toxic, honest) meals a day, a comfortable (potentially peed on but that's the jail's fault) bed, access to all kinds of fun ("fun") activities. Really he's better off in jail. In fact, he should be paying us for the privilege. But he has no money, so we'll just put him to work, but then those annoying liberals will complain about "slave labour", so I guess we'll have to pay him. 15 cents an hour is what the rules dated from the 40s say and I have no reason to believe that should've changed at all.
    (Every single sentence above has been marinating in sarcasm for 24 hours, and yet I've met people who literally believe that is all true and good)

    By giving him a job, you'll piss off both sides, not only liberals. Radicals are trained to fully accept that job is another training tool like police or different "services" and "guards" - behave not as government wants and they'll fire you from your job. This is the bigger problem which still waits to be solved... and some groups don't want it to be solved.

    Not really absurdism, but geeky weird:


    1. Interactive Elements Table

    themindunleashed dot com brought to my attention that there is an interactive periodic table that was made Boeing software engineer Keith Enevoldsen. It shows what we use each element for.

    http://elements.wlonk.com/ElementsTable.htm


    2 Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

    Although this fanfiction has been around awhile, it did not capture my eye until now. Now that the Pandora has Bard, I am listening to it... nice

    So much work: Kalzium (linux application) stil uses https://sourceforge.net/projects/bodr which has not been updated sinds 2014 or so. In 2016 some of the theoretical elements were named (for example: nihonium) and they are still not in Kalzium.
    Bugs from Kalzium are still open because they (bodr) do not update their repository. (probably too few maintainers and everything has to be verified from real sources)...

    'Radioactive waste' is my favorite use so far. What would we be doing without radioactive waste:)
