My wife and I saw a community production of Avenue Q that had an all white cast. Seeing a 50 year old white guy playing Gary Coleman and singing Everyone's a Little Bit Racist was as awkward as you would expect.

The CIA pretended to vaccinate children against polio in order to pretend to sequence their genes to look for bin Laden in order to hide the fact that Pakistan handed him over in 2006, so it's absolutely precedented.

It would have been easier to actually just vaccinate them and then lie about it later! The CIA is so loving dumb how did they manage to do anything ever!

Please explain to the Democrats and RINOs that the reason Texas-06 completely shut out Democrats in Saturday’s Jungle Primary is because of my Endorsement of Susan Wright, who surged last week after receiving it. The Democrats were shut out and now it will be a contest between two Republicans, a very big win. It would be nice, however, if the pundits and Fake News Media would state the real reason for this unprecedented (Democrats have never been shut out before) victory!

how is China openly committing genocide

China and India have had horrific relations since the border clashes a few months ago, and Xi sent Modi the first message between them in months because of the pandemic. It's just words, but these are two countries fighting a weird pseudo-medieval war in the Himalayas. Not sending a message would be good domestic politics for nationalists.
https://twitter.com/China_Amb_India/status/1388103996951252994?s=20

That social media post sucked, but it got backlash in China and doesn't indicate that China is about to start rolling over it's neighbors with blockades.

quote:

However, the callous post by the CCP Commission sparked a massive online furore following which it was removed from the social media website. A number of Chinese citizens responded to the post, criticising the Commission for uploading an insensitive post amid the rising number of COVID-19 cases in India.

Hu Xijin, the firebrand editor of the nationalist Global Times, who is otherwise critical of India, also questioned the Commission for ridiculing the COVID-19 outbreak in India. “Hold high the banner of humanitarianism at this time, show sympathy for India, and firmly place Chinese society on a moral high ground,” Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of Communist Party-backed Global Times newspaper, wrote on Weibo commenting on the deleted post.

Blockades are a big step above disputes with fishing boats. China didn't blockade Vietnam when they fought a war.

I can't overstate how much we suck at funding science worldwide, the US is among the best and we're still trash. Academics are fighting for scraps and industry has to make products that sell. We take people who want to cure a neglected disease and have the ability to do so and force them out so they end up on a project to make a better dick pill or become a McKinsey consultant

im reading a novel right now about an eccentric scientist whos secretly making a malaria vaccine but shes telling the drug company it actually allows women to maintain or recover their fertility in old age shes not exactly lying because the drug shes making does both things but if the drug company knew about the antimalaria aspect shes convinced theyd tell her to ignore it because the fertility aspect is the bigger moneymaker even though both functions appear to be caused by the same extract and cant really be analyzed independently of each other

the story is told from the perspective of a pharmaceutical company representative who goes down to the amazon just to make sure the drug actually exists at all because the eccentric scientist hates making reports and while were clearly supposed to think the eccentric scientist is correct when she explains all this at the beginning of the books final act the pharmaceutical representative mentally resists the implication out of habit just because she doesnt want to acknowledge that capitalism is terrible

the title is state of wonder on the off chance anyone wants to read it in spite of my having spoilered the big twist just finding it funny that it was published exactly ten years ago right after obama made a conscious decision not to bother fixing any of this lol
