Anyone unable to figure that out on their own is exactly the target demographic, they really did their homework

Solid indie rock. Thanks for posting, quite appropriate for my current state of mind.

Wow, thank you! I'm very glad you enjoyed. Finding a common frequency is always heartening, at the very least. Many thanks for sharing, too!

I can't share this. Other people here might read the article and associate me with it.

Great addition to the #lolbrary

If this mechanism forces a higher turnover rate in the alpha positions, I think it could effectively increase the likelihood/rate of random mutations to spur separate evolutionary paths in isolated populations. Maybe once a species develops social skills and tribalism, evolution can fast forward a little bit, if the conditions are right.

I dunno. Spitballing.

Oh plz, we're plenty dumb.

What's wrong with centering most of an entire nation's political strategies around hatin'?

This code is so disco.

I'll tell you about it someday.

I think I've always been gunning for it.

...And other generally vague statements. :/

That's fine! I think the problem is if it's thrust upon you when you're not ready for it.

am_Unition  ·  8 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: DATA LEADS TO SOCIAL COOLING

When managing separate facets of an online footprint requires enough attention and thought to detract from things you enjoy, social cooling rears its head once again. Especially if you expect to ever find yourself under any form of public fame/scrutiny (the same thing, nowadays).

rjw  ·  8 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Exactly. Fame is a risk. Best avoided, unless you want it.

On it goes.

There needs to be a word for "accusing someone of doing a thing you're actively doing." I don't think hypocrisy works any more because it just doesn't carry the weight it needs to.

Projecting?

Jives well with the notion of "weaponized prestige" I've been railing against in my own personal life.

Communities of repute foster stagnation all too often, unless they have some specific characteristics instilled into their cultures. Still sniffing out those characteristics, but most are intuitive; healthy skepticism of authority, utilitarian, inclusive, etc.

So it seems that Newt is working in concert with others, trying to normalize the move. If the GOP lets this slide, that's rock bottom.

Sadly, this pit is bottomless. I shall not repeat the litany of past events that were the bottom of the pit, but Joe the Plummer was one of them. How quaint.
