### I did and I think I recommended it here on the list.

I am almost ready to do something irrational - actually vote this year. I
have never voted, for ideological reasons and out of rational
considerations, and I posted on the list about it a few times. Now however
I am getting too angry to stay reasonable. Enemy attacks on my chosen
country are so vicious and frenzied I want to express my anger in some
concrete way, and a vote in a swing state fits the bill.

As it is, I am nowadays staying in North Carolina, so voting here gives me
a 1/6,800,000 chance of defeating the enemies.

But maybe reason will prevail and I won't vote, as usual.
