The scientific world this weekend is focused on the ever-changing situation around reports of a room-temperature superconductor. Labs around the world racing to confirm. If true, it could change the course of human history. https://www.science.org/co...

Bootleg Chelsea vs. Wrexham YouTube stream conked out at the beginning of the second half, and all I'm thinking is that if you wanted people in the Triangle area to get more excited about soccer you'd have figured out a way to let local folks watch it for free.

We don't have an energy shortage
We don't have an insulin shortage
We don't have a housing shortage
We don't have a teacher shortage
We don't have a labor shortage
We don't have a food shortage

We have a billionaire excess who buy politicians to deny us our basic human rights.

I have not put thought or real effort into my garden this year after the seed-starting fiasco and that means that now my photo memories are full of bountiful tomato harvests from years gone by while I currently have nothing ripening this year.

By far my favorite internet forever battle of recent weeks is centered around the question: "Is it necessary, or even possible, to improve a ceiling joist enough so that you can attach a hoist of any capacity to it?"

This is a fantastic post bringing together a bunch of sources and making some great points about brands and branding.

1) Argh. Google are jerks to disable HDMI over USB-C on their phones.
2) Wait, I've got an old Pixel 3 now. I'll just reflash that with /e/OS.
3) Argh. Verizon are jerks to lock the bootloader on their phones.

Surest sign that the Absinthe & YooHoo cocktail has taken off is that my local ABC store is out of Absinthe.

I got Pernod because I'm a philistine and also too lazy to go to multiple ABC stores.

"One week ago, a court in California ruled that employers cannot be sued for spreading COVID to their workers due to lack of protections.

This week, In-N-Out banned their employees from wearing masks."

The whole "People just want to be entertained! How could SAG/WGA do this to them?" angle the CEOs are playing totally lands dead for two reasons.

1) There's a lot of already complete stuff I haven't watched yet.
2) Squirming, simpering billionaire CEOs are extremely entertaining.

Stereotypes? Yes. Unnervingly accurate stereotypes? Also yes. All white folks? Again, yes?

A business plan that probably should be investigated further is the "cheap no-name 'smart' device with its own specific app and cloud service". There seem to be literally dozens of them, all selling the hardware at or below cost, and the names of the players are constantly changing.

Small influx of sugar ants in the kitchen and so I grabbed a Terro bait and they're all clustered around it happily slurping it up and by tomorrow they'll have mysteriously vanished.

GPS on new phone got lost this morning and added about 2/3 of a kilometer to my morning run (new PR!), and I looked at the process of fixing it (download, upload to editor, download, re-upload to Strava, delete old run), and tapped the heck out. Not being able to do this on Strava directly is wild.

CLAIM: Dems must be more moderate to win elections

Ok.

A living wage is moderate—a poverty wage is extreme

Healthcare is moderate—denying care is extreme

Racial justice is moderate—racism is extreme

Climate justice is moderate—denying climate science is extreme

Reject GOP Framing

TFW your new soap that has all the same branding and the old soap looks different, feels different, and smells different.

The Gab-ification of Twitter is nearly complete.

The irony here being that Musk bought twitter for the audience, and not Gab or Truth Social, but when the audience leaves he's left with nothing but folks like you see on those other two sites.

It sure would have been cheaper to buy one of those.
