looking at the new voice thing slack added
dear internet - and this includes playstation and xbox - if i wanted to fucking talk out loud ill go find a person or make a phone call. stop insisting i speak out loud on the internet. i want to be silent. (had to default my ps5 mic to off cause no i dont want to talk to you)
the only talking i do on playstation is to myself, either talking about how obviously everyone but me on my COD team sucks or how i am fucking awesome for getting 2.0 k/d
so close to thanos-style balance

this is so dark it feels american
honestly surprised american companies havent come up with a grave lease type deal. when i had to bury my mom it was amazing/gross to me just how much predatory profit is involved in burying someone.
if youre surviving family, youre in such a vulnerable emotional state and the funeral home is trying to upsell you. before she passed my mom made clear she didnt need the bells and whistles - "ill be dead" - but i know a lot of ppl feel pressure for it.

the default position for mainstream dc reporters, esp at politico, is that everything is always good for republicans. kevin mccarthy could be caught on video saying the "n" word and the dc journo class would immediately say "this is a gift for republicans." its ridiculous.
"This is actually good for Republicans and with the unprecedented step of a presidential resignation, it puts Democrats in a tough place" - Politico, if it existed in the 70s
"This is actually good for Republicans. Winning nearly every state and having complete control of gov't puts the Democrats in a tough position." - Politico, if it existed in the 60s

My back is killing me cause I've spent half the day sitting on the edge of my office chair cause of this situation:
i guess im just lucky he's not even a standard sized dachshund. honestly i do find it convenient to have a dog that you can mostly tuck like a football.
this is the face I'm getting as I try to get him up. he's also going totally limp like a kid does. #monster

your legal theories about why fox news talked about vaccination last night are probably all wrong. people on here love to talk endlessly about networks like fox getting sued over content and other than the dominion cases - still to be decided - it almost never ever happens.
its very hard in this country - rightly so - to sue a news outlet over their content. liberals on here talk about libel and slander like these cases slide through court on a regular basis. they do not. even less so when its about a public figure. its hard to do. and thats good.
nobody on here hates fox news more than me. nobody. and yet i think it would be extremely bad to be able to sue news outlets over content. its one of the reasons i really dislike the uk's libel laws. its not a good atmosphere for free speech.

i love space stuff, i hate all the private space stuff. neil and buzz on the moon yep. yuri and soyuz yup. the space shuttle, hell yeah.

some billionaire wanking around? ugh.
i find the mars rovers exciting. i think its cool to watch china and india come on board as space explorers. i am not inspired by some billionaire floating a car around in zero g.
when we landed on the moon it was an american triumph "for all mankind" it was not "this mission powered by oligarch, inc"

Fox is feeling the backlash from their anti vaxx bullshit and they're trying to cover their asses. Fuck em. They have millions of gallons of blood on their hands.
Both liberals and (even less likely) the mainstream media have to stop falling for this bullshit. Fox is like a serial killer who pauses his murder spree for a minute, hands still around his victims throat, who says "but murder is bad." Then gets right back to it.
The proper response to everything Fox does is derision.
