my house came with a flag holder out front

what flag should I get for it

lease doesn't prohibit anything
hey @selentelechia how would you feel about opening social events with a Hudson's Bay Company land acknowledgment (ht 🔒)
i like it that napolean simply adopted le Tricolore but covered it in bugs. truly the arthur chu of his time
I ultimately went with the Serapis flag because

1. its unobjectionable and unconnected to any contemporary politics

2. it represents a side of America I love (skirting the law; capturing British vessels; making shit up)

3. it is maximally confusing
also there is a secondary esoteric implication left as an exercise for the reader

no one has ever wanted anything as badly as my daughter wants to walk

she will spend hours on end pulling herself to her feet on any surface that will support her, then let go and free stand as long as she can

half a second or sometimes five or ten seconds will pass, then plop!
and then she will spend half a second confused on her tuchus before lunging back up to repeat the process

she is indomitable
she used to be obsessed with the cats but this part of her life is over.

yesterday morning i dropped Penelope into the nursery to say hello

baby reached out for the cat, but not to grab her tail. no. instead she noticed the cat was just the right height to hoist herself up

thread on reality, hyperreality, the matrix, baudrillard

my personal model of reality is closer to Paranoia RPG but worth considering lots of frames around how """reality""""" is constructed
one thing that I think is probably good practice if a little dangerous is to see what things you can bring yourself to believe that you're not Supposed to believe

ideally things that are harmless

just to keep yourself limber and able detach from other peoples narratives
things i believe or others believe that were not supposed to, an incomplete list

- ancient submerged pre-bronze age civilizations
- aquatic ape theory
- fusion being suppressed by solar industry NGOs
- elite pedophile rings exist, are run by spooks

listening to Psaki now

feels like theres an edge of panic to her voice

they keep asking her questions like "can you talk about biden's schedule today" and "how is Biden today. what is his mood like"

feels like uh

theyre looking for an opening
"two Republican senators have called on Biden to resign after the attacks today. care to respond"

biden shows up 25 min late

weirdly oscillating between clear and reasonably forceful speech and mumbling borderline incoherence
what would cause this kind of oscillation with a period of maybe 30-45s?
i wonder if the sign interpreter is conveying the mumbly bits as mumbling

idea im turning over

dignified institutions: Congress, presidency

efficient institutions: courts, bureaucracy

here of course I use these descriptors in strict parallel to Bagehot. and extremely not in their casual sense
what's interesting is that the bureaucracy in particular is defined by a kind of lack of agency and initiative. not to mention intense self-interest

so if you cede most governing power to a bureaucracy you shouldnt be surprised by govt sclerosis
government justified by presenting results to an electorate vs government justified by following a script
