    I just... I don't get how someone can be such a fucking misanthrope.

    Like, really, how can you hate people that much?

    I really don't have anything to say about this that I haven't already said. You're dedicated to hatred regardless of the positions I've taken, so I really don't know where to go from here.

    I don't care for most architecture I've realized. My real focus is how easy it is to live in a place. I look at those minimalist designs and wonder how long they stay that way when you live in them.

    Most of my ideas about places I'd like to live are focused on trying to engineer out the annoying parts. Like I want kitchen benches with a lip on them so spills can't get on the floor and which smoothly transition to the sink.

    Part of the appeal of the OP house is just how open everything is. Unless you had a huge plot of land in a 'normal' area and lots of foliage to make it seem like you were a jungle warlord, I'm not sure it would have the same punch.

    But if you had that much money to do something like that, I'm sure you could come up with something you loved.

    I've seen some houses like that basically slotted into townhouse rows in rough neighborhoods. One was just a giant black square with no obvious opening, but it was amazingly light and airy and minimalist inside.

    Listening to Kennedy the one actual swing vote made me feel the other way. Roberts and Scalia were always going to vote against it so them being hard on it isn't surprising.

    Kennedy seemed to be coming around on the mandate at the end of arguments.

    I dunno. I really don't know. But I am heartened that Kennedy did not find his limiting principle.

    he didn't speak it out loud during arguments, no

    doesn't mean he won't find one

    The government didn't provide one for him either. The comment this NPR reporter attributed to Paul Clement, "whenever I argued Interstate commerce and I could provide a limiting principle, I won. When I could not, I lost" is telling. He knew what to go after to sway Kennedy. Maybe he was successful.

    yeah, and maybe not!

    If it helps any, it was related to a question about ideological differences ever becoming personal.

    He said it jokingly, but do you ever know when somebody is joking but they're kind of not joking at the same time? Like the small kernel of truth behind every joke is actually a giant amorphous blob of 100 foot long alien corn and not a regular corn-sized kernel? That was my read on the situation 100%.
