    goddamn, tourist, you dumb. You fucking dumb.

    I love considering the logical chain that leads someone to conclude that ceremonial guards are chosen from amongst something other than the soldiers who take their jobs the most seriously.

    don't go up to a soldier on active duty and start trying to prod his rifle

    Is that the response they are supposed to give, or did that guard just get pissed and do it on his own?

    Because I can see that being the 'regulation' warning to get the hell back. I mean, they are guards.

    How poly marriage would work is a fun discussion but you eventually end up getting a headache working out the math

    Yeah, it's a goddamn complex issue. Mostly solved by just not locking things onto a spouse specifically. For example, insurance discounts for spouses could just be "If you pay X for insurance you have Y you can apply to the insurance of a spouse or spouses" instead of "Your spouse pays only this much!" And then making things like hospital visitation and such something you can easily just parcel out to whomever you want.

    That makes collective marriage for tax reasons a thing though. 30, 40 people married somehow, how do you determine what one person gets when they divorce the group?

    Marriage for tax reasons is already common, and it's kind of messed up given that it's a fuck you to single folks. You could require prenups for any and all marriage arrangements. I don't see lawyers being upset at 40 people showing up to give them money for a long-ass contract.

    Marriage is good for society, we agree, which is why we favor it in the tax code.

    Do you really want to incentivize people being in marriages they aren't all that into because there's a financial benefit, though?

    Yes.

    Bad marriages are a net loss for society.

    Trust me. My parents had one.

    Irrelevant unless you want to argue that the majority of marriages are bad.

    The majority may not be, but even a sliver of that number being bad marriages is a huge number with America's population.

    I got yelled at by a guardsman in London when I was visiting.

    I was getting my picture taken next to him right when they were about to do an inspection or a changing of the guard or something.

    So I'm just standing there and the guard yells GET BACK!! at me.

    The picture was taken at the exact moment this happened. The guard is yelling at me, and I am in the process of reacting.

    I suspect I'll only be able to get you guys SO hype for Sunday morning's rocket launch today (apparently there's bigger news today?!?!)

    But in case you're interested, NASA/SpaceX have released their Press Kit , full of cool stuff like the mission overview, a moment-by-moment description of how things should happen during the mission (including a timeline and fairly in-depth descriptions), and all sorts of other cool stuff about the Dragon, Falcon, ISS, NASA, SpaceX, the launch facility - everything you'd need to know to write your own generic article about the event! :P

    I'm paying attention! I'm super excited about what SpaceX is doing!

    I'll do a little more hype-building tomorrow morning (~24 hours before launch) - we should have images of the rocket on the pad, static tests will be finished, etc., so we'll have a lot more information - and then I apologize for none of my behaviour Sunday morning :P

    Reminder: Launch is 14:21 UTC on Sunday - That's 10:21am on the East Coast, 7:21am out west, and do your own math if you're somewhere else!

    Streams will go up about ~30 minutes prior to launch (which coincides nicely for when interesting stuff starts happening on the timeline), and of course if you can't / don't want to view the launch live, I will be ALL OVER post-launch media, including how the first stage landing attempt goes!

    I'd say marriage rate is falling because people aren't getting married as frequently anymore.

    To be slightly fair, colloquially "ceremonial" is often used to mean "something that is decorative/meaningful rather than practical". Ceremonial guards being shit soldiers is also something of a fantasy trope.

    That being said, even if you think they're not "good" soldiers, prodding someone who is even nominally a soldier while they're on guard duty is a dumb thing to do.
