She's a very good essayist, actually. I haven't yet read her fiction save for two short stories, actually. She's on my list, however.

Tbh I'm not entirely sure it's a coherent category? I like plenty of functionnal programming things and some of them I want to see in imperative contexts as well.

I'm just a little dubious about many categorizations.

You might enjoy Embrace The Void podcast episode on cheap talk.

I think the closest thing to a good answer would have to deal with discourse norms. Putting some boundaries for asking questions is arguably good, actually, if the goal is to foster some kind of understanding. Especially if the norms are set up so that every answer must be up to a demanding standard, an easy way to try to control the discourse is just asking questions, since it's a cheap tactic.

With teens though, you probably should cut some slack. Growing up in a bullshit world necessarily leads to bullshitting in the people growing up.

I enjoy the riffing on scifi tropes and the show is mostly self-aware about Rick's faults, despite a part of the fandom not getting the point. I like the voice acting a lot. Some of the bullshitty aspects are things that you're apparently obligated to do to be an Adult Animated Comedy show being crass in a formulaic way, like the ridiculous amount of gore.

The Australian version was better though.
