You're hired

No, thank you.

edit: Sorry, this should've been phrased:

No! Thank you.

Yeah but c'mon, that's a pretty good story. And YouTube encourages fast-forwarding, if you're bored with content.

I very much enjoy your SCOTUS posts :).

T-Swift's dropping an album today, titled "VP"

Canceling doesn't go one way.

Kathy Lee Grifwhatever (-ith? -in? don't care) got canceled for holding a decapitated Trumphead. Good! Don't do that.

Louis C.K. is over. Or was over. Who knows, with multi-million business deals in the mix. I don't feel bad about joining dat horde who condemned people that beat their dick off in front of strangers,

We just canceled Kanye in hubski chat a few hours ago. Examples like these go on forever.

Q: Why are there two "L"s in "uncancelled" and only one in "canceled"?

A: One was cancelled, because there is no consensus on the proper spelling.

Congratulations, you just made it through the Worst Joke of the Day, hopefully without vomiting.

It's still hilarious, to me, to pretend like the social justice warrior mob is the sole aggressor, like Stephen Miller, Ben Shapiro, or Diamond & Silk or whoever don't have a Twitter, like Donald Trump retweeting someone yelling "white power" is an accident, like the George Floyd-inspired, Kaepernick-continuing movement is unwarranted. HILARIOUS.

It's almost like one side of the political spectrum is intrinsically more susceptible to attacks on their moral stances. ALMOST.

OK, now you're saying something concrete, and I don't think you're completely wrong.

Too many of us here have been horrified at what we see as the implosion of American statehood. Personally, I'm studying it. And I know that with your socioeconomic philosophy of choice (for posterity: libertarianism), statehood is naught but a hindrance, and thus, I think it's hard for me to find common ground with someone who may delight in Trump's dismantling of this country's government.

My horror is reason #1 why I'm not on here waxing poetic-ish about the observed shape of accretion disks bent around black holes by spacetime or whatever. A chorus of other scientist-types are freaking the fuck out too at this administration. I'm not trying to pretend like muh peoples are the end-all, be-all source of wisdom, but to deny that this administration is anti-science is laughable, and some of us are fucking pissed. It's killing people.

I actually don't know how to have a conversation like this anymore. This is a pretty bad first/second attempt, and I'm sorry. Am I? I'm definitely pretty fuckin angry. There's no way that you're as angry as me, bro. Good for you. I'm jealous.

Ugghh, it got uglier from there, I deleted paragraphs.

I'm tired of seeing articles like this that are basically railing against the inevitable disruptions to society brought on by the internet, transparently adapted for a particular brand of politics. Yes, of course people posting their brainfarts on social media is going to be occasionally terrible for said people. That's one reason I'm here fleshing things out pseudonymously.

Edit: I apologize to mk, I didn't fully process their comment before posting. You can ignore me and just respond to mk, if you like. I don't want you to leave this place. I enjoy your contributions. Just because we disagree doesn't mean we gotta hate. It's a couple hours later, I've cooled off a bit, but I'm gonna leave up what I wrote, because it'd be hard for me not to have a hot take like that in person. Maybe I'm simulating that? weird

So naturally, disparaging an entire community of people... to their faces... was the right thing to do.

What would we do without you!!?

Pour one out for the days of analog [OC]:

I got morphed at! Used to have to pay for this sort of thing.

... You could train a neural network on (e.g.) your facebook photos and then feed it pixelated pseudo-faces. Should be fun.

Put Beiber's "Baby" on blast and see what happens. Jk, no one could stomach that on repeat for days-long timescales.

    workload double

You're right, the double zero was a massive oversight on my part. I'm fired, brah.

    asking for an extension

Yah, it's fine, you can just @ me sometime in 2022, I'll be around. :)

Welcome!

Things don't move so fast here. It's nice :).

Get back to me sometime this year. I want 0 pages on my desk by Noneday morning

Hahahahhahah, this is awesome, dude, thanks for the clarification

Lol, do you know what the bitrate was? Wayyyyyy less than 128 kb/s, I would assume, so you must've been listening to... MIDI chiptune?
