2 green pig people singing a bad Wookiee while boba Fett prances around in a diaper and a Hunger Games type squad backs him up

Not sure I can take much more of this
Ah jeez Boba Fett has childhood abandonment trauma too?
Oh good Machete just showed up as a Rancor trainer, maybe this will improve

Boba also now has a hipster scooter gang
singing = fighting 2 tweets up

Now watching Eternals. The opening is awful and I’m a degen mcu completist.
This a degen movie too… real B-reel material
Unbelievably bad. At this point I’m hate-watching it.

Where did the “not okay” phrase start?

A conscious rejection of the norm of not showing vulnerability being used as a control mechanism of/by the bourgeoisie I guess 🤔

The conventional response to “are you okay?” is “I’m fine” … one of the strongest phatic speech patterns in English 🤔🤔
Seems to be a signaling thing/shibboleth about as often as it points to an actual grim situation though

Noticing: Businesses are burning out. Not just employees. Increasingly too exhausted to think about stuff that’s >1y horizon stuff like product roadmaps, business models, sound capital management. 2+ years of relentless full attention on ops firefighting, morale, retention, HR.
Lots of discourse about employee conditions seem to assume the executive level is somehow immune and pursuing its old agendas with terminator-like relentlessness. Nope. Nobody is immune, so neither are emergent egregore things.
IQs in the executive suite seem to have dropped like 30 points through the pandemic, horizons have contracted from years to months. Morale is poor.

I got some turmeric powder on carpet. How do I get it off? Tried some dish soap and a random enzyme based pet stain remover and I don’t think it did anything.
Looks like turmeric is the king of impossible stains 😬

We have a guy coming out to try a professional thing, and after that I’m going to try, in order:

1. Molly’s suds
2. Resolve
3. Oil to dissolve
4. Bleach

This is a rental, so if I can’t get it out, I guess I pay.
Stain removal is unfortunately non-ergodic so order of things you try should ideally be in order of increasing effectiveness so failed methods don’t make it worse.

Somehow this shit really stresses me out. It’s like a car accident in stress terms.

Just had an interesting exchange in @yak_collective discord that led me to the idea that in trad economics, money implies ledgers, but in blockchain economics, ledgers imply money. Or in expanded form: monarch implies money implies ledgers vs anarch implies ledger implies money.
It’s a bong-rip grade thought but I’m serious. If you look at how exactly the algorithms bootstrap trust from trustless (byzantine). conditions, you realize that a reified thing like money pretty much has to emerge. But the more there is initial trust, the weaker the emergence.

Hate to add complexity to what's already a complex roadmap for @RoamResearch but strikes me that it's an ideal product to Web3ify as early as possible. Wallet sign-ins and token-based access control are kinda brain-dead obvious roads to go down. @Conaw at least put a scout on it
@RoamResearch @Conaw And the block is a natural pre-NFT unit too. Maybe if you own the NFT for a block, you get rights to everything that mentions it or something.
@RoamResearch @Conaw It's also natural to manage syncs and stuff through an internal extremely low-cost L2
