If words were as powerful as most of the left thinks they are, magical spells would actually work.
Pre internet and definitely pre cloud, multiple years of uptime was not unusual. I remember having to shut down a server over 4 years uptime for Y2K and being worried it might not come back.
I see long uptime now, all I see is an unpatched opportunity for bad actors.

This is true. I have in the past worked on more than a few systems with 5+ years of uptime. Was not unusual in the threat environment from 1995-2010 or so.
World has changed a lot since then.
How old were you when you began seeing your parents as people and not as a “parental entity”? But as a person with needs, flaws, fears, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, dreams etc.
I was in my 20’s.

Five years old.
That was when I had to get myself up for kindergarten, dress myself, and try to find breakfast and money for lunch (often none) by myself. My dad left for work at 5AM and my mom was incapable of getting up due to what I learned later was most likely depression, but at the time I just thought she was too tired to help me.
As the official COVID-19 death toll creeps past 120,000 in the USA, there is another important comparison to make.
In a normal year, the combined impact of all infectious diseases in the USA will only kill about 120,000.
COVID-19 alone has killed that many in 4 months. pic.twitter.com/fxihJXGHgp

But the flu is worse, and you are racist if you say anything else.
That really aged well, yeah?
Trump’s personal mistakes on the coronavirus have been extensive and deadly. But the public health establishment’s failures have likewise been disastrous, totally apart from him — and we should be just as comfortable calling out that fact. https://t.co/3c3buWr1sm

Imagine if our experts hadn’t told us that masks were useless and that social distancing was racist. Just imagine. That history is being erased now, but we shouldn’t let it happen.
A friend who works for a police department in Ohio said they received numerous calls today to investigate "Antifa dust" on the cars and driveways.
And now I can't stop laughing about people calling the police on trees.

We truly are the stupidest people ever to live. Truly.
There is an inherent expectation to masculinity that men can suffer more, and this is right and good
Women are not expected to suffer. A woman in pain will always draw sympathy
A man in pain, he'll be told he needs to "man up"

This matches the experience of my childhood and young adulthood 100%. He’s not wrong even if I don’t agree with him politically on much.
Participating in ‘decolonization’ is a fairly low-cost activity for most people. You just throw out all the old books on your bookshelf that you’d never read anyway and replace them with POC authors you’ll never read either.

Well, he’s not wrong. Much more is always done for show than for anything else. This is true at any time and in any human activity.
When you see clueless press headlines about SARS-Cov-2 and lack of antibody persistence, realize that antibody persistence is only one of four (or so) types of immunity, and that alone doesn’t mean much for sustained immunity to the virus.
The press doesn’t know much in general, and it shows.
