I keep forgetting what day it is and what I'm doing. The jetlag still owns me. Hopefully that will finish soon.

But. I had a lot of discussion with lincoln3 today, leaning towards political philosophy: abortion vis-a-vis feminism (specifically considering both sides of the proposition that being pro-life is fundamentally incompatible with it) bodily privacy rights in general, euthanasia, sexist bias inhereing in language, cultural relativism destroying all purported knowledge with the Giant Iron Laser Fist of Margaret Mead, etc. etc.

Ran into David Petrou, trying to get some music-playing together soon.
