Nope. That plane is not going anywhere close to the speed of sound. I’ve been fairly close to a Super Hornet when it broke the sound barrier and it shatters fucking windows. They’d never do it that close to all those people unless it were an actual war. Many of them would be bleeding from the ears with destroyed eardrums.
A lot of hyper-ventilating in this piece, but it's just nonsense to claim that rent control in Berlin is a "disaster." Most rents have fallen! Flats are cheaper to buy "because real estate loses value if its future cash flows to landlords are capped." That's a feature, not a bug! https://t.co/bdx2wEWIY1
The civil rights movement of the 1970s eventually turned into corporate human resources networks. The moral language of wokeness today is HR racial justice, which is why it's so obviously control-oriented, manipulative and unappealing. https://t.co/bcHH791V9T
Every time I go on media and say the obvious: outdoors IS safer with much less risk of superspreading (I don't know of a single confirmed outdoor-only mass transmission event) many people object and say Rose Garden! Sturgis! Neither were outdoor only. The price of misinformation.
Yeah, and you have tons of people on Twitter whining like a two-year-old with a soiled nappy because someone had the temerity to walk outside without a mask. And these are the soi-disant “smart” people, too! You know, the “believe science” ones.
The pandemic has made me deeply realize most people know almost nothing, don’t get any smarter, and furthermore don’t even want to. Because it’s, like, hard and stuff.
Conservative irrationality about covid has been well-documented, but the way many liberals calcified at irrational, unscientifically strict beliefs about safety, less so. Keeping people both safe and sane requires flexibility that polarization discourages https://t.co/PTVQJn4oC6
Key line: “Amanda Gorman, who is 22, had selected the 29-year-old [Marieke Lucas Rijneveld] herself, as a fellow young writer who had also come to fame early.” So now authors have to choose translators who have the same skin color as them? Really? https://t.co/MHXWc8ODDN
