some point recently I think I saw a tweet with sth like "sci-fi writing is knowing the equations you put bullshit numbers into". A lot of sci-fi gets the equations completely wrong as well, but I appreciate the half-baked humility which most writers lack completely.

it is amazing how a lot of right-wingers in general really hate being called "right-wing". they get incredibly defensive about it! this meme remains undefeated

Whenever somebody says "why is youtube recommending me this?" I'm doubting if they really don't watch whatever they're being recommended. I sometimes get recommended stuff I don't like, but if it happens more than once every year you're likely unaware of sth you tend to click on.
there's a lot of other people nominally claiming to be on the left you sorta have to acknowledge existing, even if they're kicking & screaming to move the opposite way.
Lying is rewarded in a wicked society and being honest is cause for punishment.

so many stories do the mistake (maybe it's intentional) that there's always one or several moments in the plot a dictator says he hates democracy & freedom etc. Dictators irl always claim they fight for all that, but there's another red thread media often categorically denies.
Happened more than once that I see someone tweeting sth like "the territorial integrity of Ukraine is unquestionable" and then they'll post a map of one of multiple past iterations of Ukraine's borders before they changed. However, these posts also always get RT'ed unthinkingly.

I see someone with 🇺🇸, 🇬🇧 or 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 next to their username and I just know I'm probably about to read one of the worst takes I've ever seen in my life.

"overpopulation" is only ever cited as reason to finance birth control programs in the global south. it's an unspoken assumption that the number of white people in the global north is always the right size, regardless of their growth and larger per capita consumption.

Here is a clip of Lizzo playing a 200-year-old flute in the library of congress. A beautiful performance from a well-trained musician. The outrage from certain people is just a symptom of their ideology. (Every time you share this it makes a right-wing talking head cry.)

#OtD 30 Sep 1946 sentencing at the Nuremberg trials began. 12 were sentenced to death, seven received prison sentences ranging from 10 years to life in prison, and three were acquitted. But thousands more active fascists would be reintegrated into society across Europe and the US

Found an old meme from like a decade ago. But it's still a good one so have a vintage meme.
