This is going to be a long thread on why certain folks on "the left" don't appear to understand what's really going on with Trump's withdrawal from Syria.

As always please save your comments until the end, which I'll mark with /end.

I thought was everyone getting at least one tattoo during October lol

But then please, PLEASE, maintain that anger when in 2-3 years, certain goods start to drop in price because of the agriculture set up on this cleared land. Everything from industrial lubricants to fad diets are going to be affected by this, and it's important our consumer decisions don't reward this exploitation.

Well, I ended up going all the way through Lateralus. I'll probably listen to 10,000 Days tomorrow to finish it up, but my opinion is still basically that Tool is just boring.

Done with Undertow. That was pretty boring. I'm gonna play Γ†nima next, but I might just have to stop after that.

In honor of the upcoming Tool album, I decided I will give them another chance and listen to all four of their albums. I'm a few tracks into Undertow and my original opinion that they're just kinda boring hasn't changed much yet.
