The Floor is Lava is proof you can deconstruct a TV show & see that it has not a single element that you think is new or praiseworthy & still find yourself unable to stop watching it why the hell is people falling in water they pretend is lava so bloody entertaining send help
That host has the literal most cringeworthy jokes on TV and gives zero shits about it and I admire that in a person
Every time I watch an episode I think about the production assistant whose job it is to impress upon the contestants how important it is to always be super dramatic about their friend falling into the water
Also I like this show because I would literally fall into the water right at the starting point and I like pretending that the people flailing around the room aren't all 10X more athletic than me and so I offer theories on what they should do better. It's like watching sports.

TIL that Fox apparently plays on military bases, so if I understand this correctly, the US Armed Forces are currently paying subscriptions to a channel to broadcast to their members that their sitting Commander-in Chief is a usurper illegally occupying office who must be stopped?
If a serving member or officer stood up during dinner and yelled these same things out to the room multiple times every night would that be OK? And if not, how is paying for Hannity and Carlson to do that exact same thing every night at your troops permissible?
If an officer was insisting to his subordinates that the CIC was illegitimate and an anti-American radical who hates the nation, would that lead to consequences? If yes, how is officials paying to disseminate that to the whole base on a nightly basis not leading to them?

unpopular opinion but I dunno how you can convince any parent that prioritising their child over a stranger is an unethical action. The actual solution is ramping up production & not letting foolish bottlenecks like pharma profit dreams create this sort of zero sum game to start
Is it unethical to prioritise my low risk child over a high risk adult? How about not prioritising pharma companies right to profit off vaccine tech, which is what is happening when you make it a choice between kids in A and adults in B instead of everyone everywhere vs profits
Can the world produce 7 billion vaccine doses? yes. Can these doses reach almost everyone? yes. Will they protect most people? Yes. Will the pandemic keep recurring via variants until we hit a critical global mass of protected ppl? Again, yes. There is no fifth question needed.

In the first bit of good news out of India in a loooong time, folks appear to have turned the corner in recovery. Still not out of the woods yet, oxygen levels still not normal, but the worst *may* be over. Fingers crossed.
I think tonight I may sleep properly for the first time since like April
Dad and Neighbour Uncle have spent half the evening arguing via text about about who in fact has a lower SPO2 reading currently so things appear to be heading back towards normal.

India is demonstrating to the whole world what happens when you decide to make an essential vaccine a pay to play scheme
Even the USA, the country that is willing to throw itself off cliffs the moment someone declares that capitalism is feeling hurt is giving the vaccine to all residents for free but the geniuses running India decided they'd abdicate all responsibility and charge for it.
Acche Din
The Indian govt literally told the citizens of India "fuck off we are campaigning in an election ignore corona and make sure you vote for us btw if you want vaccine buy it on market yourself" and there's actually ghouls out here defending this.
