  1. Usually around 2 AM.
  2. How’s that for journalistic integrity?!
  3. Too much responsibility, and not enough conscious awareness. How can a person be expected to accept that everything is their doing? It’s incredibly daunting/absurd/threatening depending on one’s level of awareness to hear such a thing.
  4. I’m a hard C. Not people oriented, and a thinker rather than a doer.
  5. Well...it’s a quagmire, for sure. https://bigthink.com/culture-religion/should-voters-have-to-pass-a-competency-test-before-pulling-the-lever/
  6. Yup. It’s the whole “democracy is government of the people, by the people, for the people...but the people are retarded” Osho quote.
  7. Reminds me of an assignment I had in my first year of college. There was an either/or choice between The Prince by Machiavelli or Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu for which we considered the best method of leadership. The overwhelming majority of the class went with Machiavelli.
  8. Recontextualizes the phrase “keeping up appearances”, doesn’t it?
  9. In theory, sure. In practice, not so much. I think the best implementation so far was in Yugoslavia. But even that was a house of cards that collapsed relatively fast.
  10. The fact that Taiwan is included in that image labeled “China” is the crux of the issue. Taiwan has a more progressive democratic government. They split from the ideology of the mainland with their own constitution in the late 1940s. Does this constitute independence or not?
  11. I wish I could show clips like this to my coworkers without causing office drama. This past week, I heard: ”Hey, are your kids gonna wear masks at their school?” in a dejected tone “Yeah...what about yours?” ”No, thank God...” As a former band nerd, I’d also like to point out masks and music don’t mix. ¢2
  12. I hope it doesn’t even take that long. Isn’t opposing the advancement of society the entire Conservative M.O.?
  13. https://www.reuters.com/business/aerospace-defense/taiwan-scrambles-jets-against-renewed-chinese-military-activity-2021-09-05/ I dunno, man. That doesn’t look good.
  14. It’s literally his job. I hope Jimmy did more introspecting after this, but I doubt it.
