Re: Verweile doch, Léa Seydoux, du bist so schön


Interesting analysis of a movie I'll probably never see.

The net nanny at work is preventing me from opening the comments on the 'I support holidays', saying that sex sites are blocked. So whatever you perverts are saying about me and my neighbors, I won't be able to read for another few hours.

Sorry for the off-topic comment here. I don't mean to hijack two threads.

Hah, we have the same net nanny. Ours has gotten erratically very very strict -- redfox's blog, as well as dsquared's are both too dirty to read at work, as are about half of Unfogged threads, and about half the time the whole

And yet, I can still read Savage Love. Strict and arbitrary.

6: So your Net Nanny favors monotony but not monogamy? Quirky!

Just checked, and Savage Love is accessible. Weird. Heebie's blog is also a no-go zone, but that one isn't sex, it's a "Suspicious Embedded Link".

After the Savage Love thing, I'm tempted to start searching for real porn, just to see how confused the Nanny is. Probably a bad idea.

Before this thread goes too far off topic, I also appreciated Ben's thoughts on Midnight in Paris.

If this is an open thread, however, I note that Ezra Klein linked to a very nice chart giving some context for the discussions about deficit reduction. As Ezra puts it,

What you're seeing here is the differences between doing nothing and doing what we expect Congress to do. The blue slope at the base of the graph is what our deficit picture looks like if Congress goes on permanent recess tomorrow. Every colored chunk above that is a deficit-increasing policy that the CBO thinks Congress is might pass

Click through for the chart and an explanation of the items, but two big ones are tax related: extending the "Bush" tax cuts for income under $250,000k and permanently altering the
Alternative Minimum Tax (which is probably worth doing). Those two items essentially triple the projected debt, compared to current law as it stands.
