Jury duty is absolutely insane. Mandate that it is fully paid leave, or government pays you in full. Expecting people to just suck up weeks or months of lost wages is criminal.
missed this. no idea if she stayed on but what the fuck lol
I can’t change my own oil either
zoomers can't into computers is one of the most surprising things I have learned recently
erryone be talking about global warming but no one actually wants to do anything that would actually solve it like geoengineering or mass nuclear. theyre just aesthetic primitivists https://twitter.com/robinhanson/status/1426185570594689029

That we fucking invented, engineered and built watches before ubiquitous computing is completely insane. Explain to me how a world where you can get something like this for less than $1000 comes to be and I will show you a miracle.
Magicians do exist.
This is the tweet of the day. I’m logging off
@eigenrobot Here it is.
The proof that a group of 'smart' people is actively trying to destroy the traditional social mores that 'dumb' people rely on for moral guidance
What does it make you if you are the "how to be gay" police
@LilNasX You’re so insecure about your sexuality you’re over compensating for it every chance you get. Gay people who know themselves don’t constantly have to remind eveyone that they are gay. Take a look at yourself on the mirror bro
But maybe he has a side hustle?
Ah nope he goes home and plays video games

It’s a good essay “You will wrap your mediocre malice in the false gauziness of ideological purity” https://www.chimamanda.com/
“We’re having the wrong conversation” is what you say when you’re losing.
