I was more excited about Shaky Knees before I realized that it's an all day festival that's set up completely in ripoff mode :(.

Why did Republicans become so stupid as to trust their politicians?

I mean I know that the media lies, this is explicitly what FOX news was created to do, but why have they allowed these hucksters to turn that into their politicians tell the truth? When have politicians ever been trustworthy?

The State of Florida has voted to rescind the extra-territoriality of one of the most well-known Megacorporations on the planet. What happens next will tell us exactly which genre's dystopia we are living in.

The stock market is a magical place full of made-up values that the Gentry take seriously and do their best to force us to take it seriously.

Netflix lost 700,000 subscribers from the Russian blockade, and then 200,000 subscribers in its first quarter leaving it with around 220 million accounts. It expects to lose another 2 million accounts leaving it around 218 million accounts. The Gentry reacted to this news with a ritual that claimed this was a loss of about 50 billion dollars in value.

If we take the largest number of lost subscribers from the numbers I took that puts each customer at being worth 16,666 dollars. Presuming each of these customers bought the most expensive monthly package from Netflix they would have to subscribe for 69 years to hand over that much money to Netflix as individuals.

Christians always act like this stuff is harmless until somebody wants to do Islamic prayer or pray to the devil for power at the start of a game. When it's not their religion being pressured into public spaces they seem to get it, but are otherwise happy to selfishly apply a different standard to themselves.

I love seeing all of the ads from MicroCenter. Fry's ate their lunch for years, but they survived, and it's the best computer hobbyist store I'm aware of these days.

"Better to feed down than kiss up."

Gotta remember that one.

I think when corrupt Republicans tried to pull this by buying an airport for the state somebody stopped them. Although if I recall correctly they did punish Delta for not kissing the ring over the pandemic.

Today is just another reminder that Republicans are perfectly fine with regulating corporate entities if they don't kiss the ring.

I feel like I was very recently talking about how SC and SC2 were sort of deceptive about the size of the units in game versus the lore. Apparently some people agreed and made a mod to highlight the differences.

Apparently I share the same birthday with Daisy Ridley.

This song is a ballad to the last dinosaur.

We come here in search of a place to express our thoughts outside of the direct control and surveillance of unaccountable, mega-corporations. There is no common theme that binds us other than these being the bonds we've chosen rather than those that have been chosen for us.
