Tached On

The Fat Acceptance nutty buddies truly do believe that losing weight and working out is “hurting your body.” Damn, if I were the food company marketing teams I’d be patting myself so hard on the back when I saw this I’d give myself heart arrhythmia — which is exactly what the FA goofuses are gonna get all on their own.

Degen

I am still kinda sad that Ian Welsh became such an idiot putz. He was really good once. I hope someone takes me aside and talks to me if I start going that route and that I don’t just degenerate like that.

Up Done

Give it up, Covidians. No one gives a shit anymore and most know you’re lying about Long Covid, etc. It’s done, it’s over, you lost.

Pauvreté rampante

What Amy is talking about below is also a lot of what doomed Firefox to failure. They did not care what the users wanted; they had a goal of aping Chrome, removing features and capabilities, and didn’t give a shit at all what the users wanted or needed. And it doomed them (as it should have).

That’s the Point

Both Amanda and I grew up among fundies and evangelicals. She’s completely correct.

So Long, Long Covid

LOL. So, Long Covid matches about what I thought it’d be, and is roughly about what it is for all other similar viruses (predictably).

That’s just what I expected to see.

Why We Lost

This tendency is what lost the Left the culture wars and even Roe, because as the Right was organizing around real political power and getting shit done, the Left was making sure that no one used the wrong huwty-woity words and that no one was appropriating (read: learning from) anyone else’s culture — all the while insisting that biology isn’t real and that women aren’t either.

This is how you lose. And we sure did. It’s only going to get worse.

Much Longer

Given the latency of the human nervous system and the variability thereof, you’re really seeing your hand as it was 10-30ms ago.

Bailed

I know, SHOCKING, right? WHO COULD HAVE KNOWN?

Bike Bounce

I’d never ride any form of bicycle or motorcycle on any road in the US ever. Every single person I know who bikes regularly has been hit by a car, some multiples times. Every single one.
