Western world does not understand ethnic conflict. The assumption is that ethnic conflict is reducible to scapegoating and irrational hatred, as opposed to groups with fundamentally contradictory values and interests constantly fucking with each other until someone pulls a gun. — Jonah Bennett (@BennettJonah) April 25, 2019 This is pari passu with the Western liberal… Read More »

Banning AC is not looking like such a clever idea now that it’s going to be 110 in Minneapolis is it, you fucking wankers?

Herdvergence

I DGAF if I get sweaty. It dries! It's mostly odorless water! But I think I get away with a lot of stuff because of thin person privilege basically. — Angie Schmitt 🚶‍♀️🚴‍♀️ 🚌 (@schmangee) July 18, 2019 Found another one who has never worked in a formal/stuffy office job where coming in to work… Read More »

The lesson of the Netflix crash: Beware of hot stocks, says Brett Arends. That’s not the lesson — the lesson is to know when to get out. I made 311% profit on Netflix and was very happy with that. Realized it was time to get out, and did. I had some goofus tell me that… Read More »

One thing that has really struck me I’ve the past 2+ weeks in Japan is how active and fit older people are here.
