i think your last paragraph sums up the issue best. i see what you mean that the person's life will be destroyed & won't learn anything but the ruling/steep penalty is also meant to demonstrate the severity of such false allegations to the rest of society. It sets a standard that the behavior won't be tolerated, which in turn strengthens any legal cases of legitimate rape & helps to protect people from defamatory comments in the future. thus the "lesson" isn't so much meant for the accused, but also others who may have potentially tossed around false allegations of (any crime) with no regard for the consequences.

i think hanging out with ancient, beloved rock stars makes him cool.

oh i agree completely. i waited from like 1:30 on and then was absolutely crushed by the weight of 'em all. just saying it's irrelevant to the strokes performance.

it seems like the negativities you throw around in your dissection of the Strokes e.g. "so thoroughly populated with bros" or "every faux-aloof thing Julian did that kinda bugged me" or "it comes off as more of a lack of charisma, or a fundamental disengagement from what they're doing" are more a reflection on your own perception of reality than any genuine flaw in the strokes performance.

seems like the why'd you= why do you, whereas you are interpreting it as why did you; thus why do you only call me when you are high.

"I am a blog scientist, not an astronomer, but I am pretty sure that is not true" It most certainly is true. The year 2013 is purely a measure of the earth's orbit around the sun, beginning at some arbitrary point in time. So i'm pretty sure that wherever someone goes in the galaxy, that measure still exists.
