I would genuinely like to know why “boy” maps to “Eldritch Abomination” for me.
So Measure D is the big thing in Berkeley right now. One penny per ounce sales tax on sodas. (According to a pretty weird definition of “sodas,” but w/ever.)
It seems so… Trivial. An extra dime-to-a-quarter tagged onto the price of a drink is not going to shape consumer behavior much (look at any given pair of shops and price variance is already in the $.50+ range), so it’s not (realistically) a consumer incentive tax. The money is not being earmarked for anything, so it’s not an offset tax.
So whether you think it’s good or bad, it’s *not much* of either. Both sides are *so exercised* about it, though. I can’t help feeling there’s something deeper going on.
The improv team I was on in high school only had one rank: “co-captain.” If you joined the improv team, you were automatically a co-captain. It wasn’t to make everyone equal within the club dynamic or anything like that, we just all knew that we would have to list extracurriculars on our college applications, and you could make yourself look more impressive by putting “co-captain” without specifying how many other captains the team had or how a member becomes a captain.
