Stuff I forgot in the previous post...

This is what I get for not pre-outlining stuff before I type. There was a forgot several bullets in my bullet point list downstairs. (Bullet points are difficult in LJ and HTML, anyway!)

  • During that week in February, the rest of the punditsphere has been talking about The Bell Curve. I've been reading up on it myself to see why it is so messed up, and to see why it is s compelling to some. (I'm thinking of some disciples of the Rushton school of genetics.) As it is my job to be a month late and a point short, I'd like to throw in my two bits.

  • Should parents consider less ethnic names for their children. (A study says that with, all else equal, employers will less likely consider resumes with stereotypical black names than resumes with stereotypical white names. I think I'm safe in regards to that. I fear that my general contempt for work and love of procrastination will be my impediment.)

  • My lament that I forgot my camera at the nude protests here, earlier.

  • Links to naked girls to make up for not getting the above protest on film.

  • A list of places in this world I want to visit before I die.

  • And schools I dream I could go to if I had the smarts and can move away from here. (with the game "Be Sterling's Counselor.")

I looked at the code you're using...you don't need the [br] between bullets. The [li] automatically inserts one.
  • See, this is

  • the way you're

  • doing your

  • lists.

Meanwhile, in other pages of HTML....
  • this is
  • a regular
  • bulleted list
  • without the extra [br] tags.

I hope that'll make it easier. And why did you leave the boards?

Hrm. Reading on preview, it looks as though you're hitting [enter], then using [br][li] for each one. The [enter] key is unnecessary when you're doing [ul]s. So in LJ either hit [enter] before each [li] or use the [br] tag...but you don't need both.

In regular HTML the regular carriage returns are also done by the [li] tag...so you only need to use the [br] tag if you reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally want those things SPACED! DAMN YOU! BE SPACED!

I could be totally preaching to the choir and you know all of this...but you said bulleted lists were a pain in LJ and HTML, and I figured you must have been doing SOMETHING different, since typing [li] before each line really doesn't seem that much of a pain from here.

(All brackets should obviously be greater than/less than signs, but I don't know the code for inserting those so the program won't recognize them as holding legitimate tags.)
