RE: Masculine Karen, it's gotta be Richard/Dick, based on my ultrascientific method of googling the year Karen was most popular, then googling popular baby names that year, and finding the masculine name in the same row as Karen.

Conspiracy theory folks are going crazy right now.





Someone tried passing off a cell phone recording of a cell phone recording of some kinda Alexa playback saying it's a government-released bioweapon as evidence the virus was a government-released bioweapon to me last night while I was smoking a cigarette outside on my porch.

I didn't really know where to begin other than, "Uh... so you got a source for that?" and "Y'know that old saying, 'three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead?'"

My kneejerk was to assume "breeder" was some derogatory term incels had cooked up appropriated from Nazis for women.

I hadn't really thought of the no-children crowd. Though that livejournal was some good poo poo. Only way it could be better was if it was MLP and not Harry Potter.

It's me, I'm the idiot on social media

Why can't they give me like a slider so that I can change my tax money going from the military to things that I support like libraries and schools?

It's because all the tax money will go to bombs isn't it?

I mean... don't corporations do this all the time?

Is there a secret tax hack where I can make deductible donations in lieu of tax withholding and basically fund like the Post Office and libraries and schools and tell the military to suck poo poo?

What's the Konami Code of tax preparation?

On one hand I saw someone minimizing financial strain while begging for subs. Bad

On the other, I saw someone making fun of incels furiously beating their meat to twitch streamers. Good?

Ah ok, now it all clicks.

Yeah, I can't be too mad at it. Sex workers deserve to be paid. And if the price of anime porn merch is anything to go by, incels got mad bucks.

I like the version I read on a birthday card years ago where it includes a helicopter, and God's last line is "I sent two boats and a helicopter, what more did you want?" It's such a casual yet annoyed final line.

I imagine if there is in fact some omniscient omnipotent creator somewhere beyond our worldly perception, that considers us it's "project," it must be doing whatever the equivalent of banging its head on a wall in frustration is.

There's a ton of white people all walking around without a care and the only people staring at him are the ones who are clearly reacting to him filming them for no reason. Everything is clean and there's not a single sign of crime or decay anywhere. It's literally him walking into a completely normal part of a first world city and cringing in terror at people who aren't white daring to exist nearby.

luxury handset posted:

the reason you wear a mask while driving is because you're probably not sanitizing your steering wheel or other vehicle controls, and it's not great to keep touching your mask as you don/doff it

I deal with this by sanitizing before I touch any surfaces inside the vehicle. I don't have much of a choice in the matter at the moment since my glasses slide right off my face if I try and wear a mask with them on, and if I try to drive without them, the world will be in for a bad time.

Is this with a wire/little metal bit at the top to shape it to your nose? I added these to my homemade masks and it's a game changer.

I need to reiterate: my problem isn't that the glasses fog up, it's that if I don't keep my head perfectly level, they slide off my face because they don't have the rubber nose pads.

This person is wild but I have zero confidence that Facebook isn't using those avatars to harvest race and other demographic data that people might not self-identify on their profiles.

Pretty much every scrap of data posted on social media and social media-adjacent things is being used to scrape data for a gaggle of data scientists locked in a room to figure out how to sell you toothpaste or the latest smart phone. Said metrics are then sold to other groups for more nefarious purposes, such as figuring out if you're gay and coming up with an excuse to fire you.

Assume every scrap of data is being datamined to discover some bizarre correlation between what brand of salmon you buy and your propensity to commit arson.

They're exploiting protections they don't even agree with. I guarantee these are the same people who would throw a fuss about disability exemptions in any other setting (one where they don't personally benefit), and think being able to keep the nature of your disability private is wrong. Can't count how many times I've seen fucks like this demand to know why someone driving with a disability placard "deserves it" when they "look fine to me".

I'm 100% certain one of the two people in that screenshot has gotten a ticket for parking in a handicap spot.

Medium is the journalistic equivalent of a rubbermaid tub full of jungle juice. Someone has probably pissed in it, and you'll absolutely regret having it the next morning.
