There's no great way to handle people whose only goal is to drag you down or lessen you. Just block and move on to better things.

Let's solve the climate crisis by launching approximately 80 billion kilos of ideologically active biomass into space. Utterly wild take

This has nothing to do with climate change, except for the likely possibility that billions of climate displaced people will (through no fault of their own) fuel xenophobia across the globe by their mere presence throughout the next century, potentially resulting in several holocausts that our children's children will be dealing with.

I don't think anyone was on the edge of their seats wondering if this was the norm

Are we all fucked?

I'm worried for the world. All I've been thinking about is WW3 and this shit makes me want to vomit. I can't even smoke weed anymore without having a near panic attack. I feel unmotivated. I wake up and immediately just want to go back to bed. I'm not trying to spread fear but the Doomsday clock is 90 seconds till midnight,...

Activism would help very little, but at least it isn't fatalism.

It's clutch for boring emails with several tedious document summaries. Sometimes I get a day's work done in 4 hours.

Automation can be great, when it comes from the bottom-up.

I've never been impressed with my fellow Americans who talk shit on the French. We have mostly let go of our revolutionary spirit, and they never did. We would do well to pick up where we left off at Blair mountain.

The best thing I've heard about when players murder your darling NPCs is to just retcon anything you haven't given away yet. That wasn't the mouthy barfly who was about to drop a paragraph of expository dialogue, she's actually right... Here!

Who told you Japan was planning to continue the war after Hiroshima?

They were planning to concede after the first bomb. The president didn't even learn of Nagasaki until it was in the news.

I could never claim to summarise even five minutes of WWII with a couple of sentences, but my point is that it's hardly fair to characterise Japan as "ain't heard no bell"

Maybe we should get the siblings alone and see if they think the others are trash. Prisoner's dilemma style.

Wouldn't really call what Putin or Xi has going on communism though, would you? They both operate stock exchanges and broadly private enterprise that systematically subjugates their working class while they constantly feel the need to expand their territory and purview of economic sway abroad. To me that sounds a lot like what we do when we talk about our capitalism.

You've very helpfully put your finger on exactly what holds me back. If I found myself believing in a lost cause, I couldn't bear to go on. I am too close to despair as it is, so I will spare myself the small indulgence of certainty.

I liked Noah Caldwell Gervais' take. It has elements that are ill considered, like its endless late game treadmill, but the basic thing that it was trying to do was fun as hell.

    Putin orders creation of psychiatric institute to “study the behavior of LGBT people”, Russian health minister warns of "suicides across the country" ( web.archive.org )

    On June 14, Russia’s State Duma passed a bill banning surgical operations “aimed at changing a person’s sex” and changing one’s gender marker in legal documents in its first reading. During the session, multiple parties in the Duma vocally criticized the document. After Russia’s Minister of Health Mikhail Murashko...

    I love the diligence. That scans honestly, I was wrong to assume the worst. I'm used to InBev and their ilk being kind of terrible.
