Billionaires are theft

RT @_cingraham@twitter.com

If Jeff Bezos gave all 876,000 Amazon employees a $105,000 bonus, he'd be left with exactly as much money as he had at the start of the pandemic. the.ink/p/billionaire-wealth-j

I'm deeply suspicious of anyone who's only justification for why they think or behave a certain way is "I guess I'm just old fashioned :)"

The future is now, old timer, and nine times outta ten that line (except as pertains to food, usually) exists solely to prop up outdated and stifling social roles without having to examine them.

"Everything we do to make it harder to create a website or edit a web page, and harder to learn to code by viewing source, promotes that consumerist vision of the web.

Pretending that one needs a team of professionals to put simple articles online will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Overcomplicating the web means lifting up the ladder that used to make it possible for people to teach themselves and surprise everyone with unexpected new ideas. "

kill your heroes. believe in ideas, not in the people who pioneered them. the picture of your hero that you hold in your mind is always more perfect than they were in reality -- and when you attempt to defend them from criticism, because you have built your beliefs on that person, you will inevitably betray some of your own ideals.

Another Echidna Encounter this evening. Spotted this larger echidna on the side of our street, and unfortunately, being a bit older and wiser, he decided to hide against a tree trunk instead of potter around.

The truth about why Cummings hasn't gone: Johnson is too terrified to sack him | Marina Hyde | Opinion | The Guardian theguardian.com/commentisfree/
'PERHAPS on Sunday you watched the entire nation being lectured on what constitutes fatherly responsibility by Boris Johnson, a man who won’t even say how many children he has, and leaves women to bring up an unspecified number of them.
PERHAPS on Monday you watched the Guardian’s Rowena Mason being lectured in journalism by Johnson, a man sacked from a newspaper for fabricating quotes from his own godfather, and who blithely discussed helping a friend to have another journalist beaten up.
PERHAPS today, you heard Michael Gove tell LBC he has “on occasion” driven a car to check his eyesight.
If you did see these things, I can only direct you to the slogan flyposted all over Paris during the 1968 civil unrest. “DO NOT ADJUST YOUR MIND – THERE IS A FAULT WITH REALITY.”

cold take around here, relationships 

platonic, romantic, and sexual desire/attraction are three separate things, not three levels of the same thing, and one is not the logical progression of the next 👏

like fr lots of people, especially a lot of incels/redpillers, will literally not register women as real women or even as existing if they don't meet a certain level of attractiveness. you can tell because they say things like "women have it so easy because men give them everything and they can get laid whenever they want," i.e. they're only thinking about (often imaginary) beautiful traditional 20-something women, not women who are old or ugly or gender-nonconforming

Honestly it costs nothing to be a decent human being and treat others with the respect you'd want from them too

@loke I do, regularly, hire bikes in London. At the moment, cycling in the city is a real pleasure.

09:00, Monday, 27th of April, 2020. Oxford Street, London. Normally one of the busiest shopping streets in Europe.
