They are having fun. You might google "fun" to try to understand the
concept.

Johnn Larkin has the same kind of fun with the concept that anthropogenic global warming isn't actually happening, which is roughly as comic as believing in a flat earth.

I think Americans don't even use the freedoms we have effectively. I  
think if we got more all we'd do with it is make memes, drink cheap  
booze, declare the Earth to be flat, and make fun of everyone else in  
the world for not being as cool as us for being free to have dumb ideas.

Also not pay taxes

You say all that like it's a bad thing.

What's the best cheap booze? PBR is drinkable. And Miller High Life
maybe, like if you're rafting on a hot day and it's free.

I buy Genesee* by the 30 pack.  You are probably fortunate not to  
have it out west.  I like fancy beers, but more than one and  
I'll have beer farts the next day.... too much alcohol too.

'right' to me.

I sure hope they don't use Genesee River water to make that beer.

Actually, it tastes pretty good. BevMo usually has it here.

We like lighter beers: Harp, Widmer, Anchor Steam, Guinness Blonde,
Purple Haze, like that.

All depends on what sin you want to get done most effectively - the sin  
of rapidly getting blasted drunk, or the sin of enjoying the taste of  
alcohol.

SF has no great cajun/creole food, so I have to do it myself. I've
heard that Elite Cafe has revived, so I guess we'll try it, but it's
hard/impossible to park in that part of town.

http://www.theelitecafe.com/s/Dinner-070617.pdf

But SIX DOLLARS for grits? That's "polenta" pricing.

Camelot, an ersatz British bar in Pacifica, has fish-and-chips with
the option of fried oysters instead of fish.

I am this instant finishing up take-out shrimp-and-grits from Gaslight
Cafe nearby. Pretty good, actually.

Okra? Yuk.

Actually, I was a Geek Protestant, but most of the other kids were
Roman Catholic. Some kids were afraid to stand near me, because the
nuns told them that one day the Devil would suck me down to Hell and
they might get slurped up too.

The Catholic kids would cross the street rather than walk on the
sidewalk in front of a Protestant church. I could make them cry by
threatening to drag them onto the stairs of our church. The Catholic
kids were, in my opinion, the worst behaved and most immoral. Every
week, they could confess and be forgiven! The Catholic girls' schools
had, umm, reputations too.

Ran onto that problem in Boston.  A co-worker with my wife was
Catholic.  She and her husband were contemplating buying a house, but
she feared she'd get pregnant and they would no longer have two
incomes.

My wife gave her a little fireside chat...

A few days later she told my wife that they could no longer associate
with us :-(

Nice couple, he was chess champion of the 7th fleet, which he 'fessed
up to after repeatedly trouncing me ;-)

Yup.  There was a girl with the name 'Faith' no less.  The standing
line was, "Keep the baby, Faith".

Apologies :)

Guilt + redemption-through-my-organisation is a powerful
method of control and stifling thought. Many (most?)
religions practice it in one form or another.

I've seen Catholicism instill guilt in some ~8yo cousins.
In that case it was about being rude to their host by
having to refuse breakfast on Friday because it contained
bacon. Actually, the host (my mother) wasn't offended - except
by the religion making young kids feel guilty.

Yeah. The received "wisdom" is that they become either
saints or sinners. Both are useful to the church, in
different ways!

Well, so much for that "religion chopper-stabilizes society" thing lol

Anyway you can always tell a visitor from the South or West; they just  
come up to you on the street and like, start talking. Which is really  
strange, it's like um hello? Do I know you? What makes you think you  
have the right to just address me on the street in this fashion as I go  
about my business like a friend?

But it does; it drags behavior, reluctantly, towards a stable
centroid.

One thing that I first noticed about California is that strangers
would talk. Like, start discussing vegetables in Safeway. I think
that's cool.
