In this difficult time, my thoughts go out to the grieving families of all the people who are dead because of this guy.

Nope. Everybody is lost, afraid/trauma-bombed, and whatever version of "trying" is applicable, and I think that it's okay to admit that. Whatever's going on is messy, won't end well, and we're just hoping that we can survive and be comfortable when whatever "it" is happens.
Sincere question: does anybody know what the fuck is going on?

92% of infrastructure projects go over budget in the U.S., usually by a lot. Voters approved California's high-speed train when they were told it would be done in 2020 at $33 billion. Now it's $100 billion and may never get done. We are so bad at this nytimes.com/2021/11/28/us/in…

This is literally just the job creators myth applied to entertainment. Yeah no shit Beast was able to throw it together in 7 weeks, he just copied an original design with infinite funds and sole discretion. Also, a free 25 minute video is not the same as a 10 hour paid drama.

I graduated college debt-free, and I'm 100% behind debt cancellation.
I support canceling student debt. I graduated college debt-free.

The @nytimes has been roasted online for three days and still hasn’t corrected that the central premise of this story—that the NYPD used to solve 90 percent of murders!?—is flat out wrong. The actual number? Mid-60s. The pandemic number? Also mid-60s.
Pre-COVID, NYPD was solving nearly 90% of murders. But that rate plunged over COVID, even as violent crime rates spiked. I spent 2 months with a family as they went from hopeful, to frustrated, to distraught, waiting for NYPD to catch their son’s killer. nytimes.com/2021/11/26/nyreg…

A guy was caught stealing $950 in stuff from Walgreens. It led to 309 news stories. Walgreens was caught stealing $4.5 million from employees. It led to 1 story. Wage theft is bigger than all robberies combined but you wouldn't know it watching the news popular.info/p/a-tale-of-two…

"Just because cryptocurrency has given individuals a way to conduct commerce without the traditional legal structure of a business, that doesn’t make them anticapitalist libertines. It just makes their business less accountable." 👏 @smdiehl

Fuck it, I now support enforced vaccination. Send in the army. Let’s magnetize and microchip these assholes.
A federal judge has blocked a federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers in 10 states. They had challenged the president's order, arguing there was no clear legal authority for it. The rulings are in force, pending appeals to higher courts to.pbs.org/2xQQeuL

It took him 7 weeks to piggy back off of the popularity of someone else's original concept & decade long effort on a free-to-watch platform. Nothing against Mr. Beast's video. This analysis is just a terrible misrepresentation of the original work's influence & achievements.

The naive assumption that America could never become an authoritarian, anti-democratic state that systematically denied legal protections to certain classes of people, is plausible only if you know nothing about the history of Jim Crow, Redemption, and slavery.

Omicron has been detected in UK, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Australia, South Africa. South Africa did the genome sequencing, and shared its data immediately - for which we have punished them by singling out southern Africa for a travel ban.
