We have to go at 1-2pm just to get a lane.. normally it is shoulder to shoulder... even at 2 pm today it had a good number of people.

In ISrael atleast no one considers COVID as even a worry anymore...

Side note, you dont know what I do do you? You know I work in a lab with COVID samples right?

Adulting is such a horrible pain in the ass, but the alternative is far worse.

Good Sunday morning!

You heard it from the horse's mouth, or should I say pastor. They want to kill you.

The fact that for 4 years this anti-American psycho narcisist had the launch codes to their nuclear arsenal is probably the most terrifying thought possible. #Trump

The GOP is obsessed with genitalia. What kind people using bathrooms have, whether they should blast their own with light, and what the president’s son’s look like.

Many Tesla owners seem to now be concerned that their vehicle may be increasingly viewed as the automotive equivalent of a red MAGA hat, or noting that they themselves are now viewing Teslas that way. Not very difficult to understand why.

Something particularly notable as I read through this thread is the current Tesla owners who say that they really like the car per se, but would not consider getting another, because of what Musk represents to them now (and of course, there's much more EV competition now also so they don't have stop driving EVs). Professors will be talking about this "self-inflicted brand implosion" in business school classrooms for generations.

By the way, every story written about Trump from now on must contain something like the phrase “who has called for the termination of the U.S.Constitution”.

I’m not kidding.

Not including it is journalistic malpractice.

A presidential candidate who would welcome Nick Fuentes and Kanye West to dinner is a candidate who is completely untethered.

A candidate who has no one around him to tell him no.

He is surrounded by people as crazy as he is. Which means he’s even more dangerous.

Didn't we learn before January 6, 2021 to take Trump literally and seriously? He is calling the suspension of the U.S. Constitution to overthrow the President of the United States.

Georgia has had long voting lines for years. In 2021 the GOP passed a new law (SB202) that made them worse. This is why.👇

I am now compiling a list of all servers who may have an interest in joining the United Federation of Instances. Quite a few instances have already...

Adam Reader, also known as The Professor of Rock... is a freakin' legend.

youtube.com/watch?v=TWn2ShHJnN covering "I can't make you love me" performed by Bonnie Raitt.

PoR is so gracious and respectful as he covers each of the artists. I came from the days of the Satanic Panic, and there was so much wonderful music back in the day I couldn't enjoy because "if it ain't God's Gospel & Country/ Western... IT'S OF THE DEVIL!!!"

But that music was still part of my background, stuck in my head after all these years. That's the power of THAT music at THAT time! I very much appreciate how Reader covers the background and context of this music I had in the background despite my parent's efforts to keep me from the Evil Devil Worship Music. For Reader, it's personal, it's authentic, the music is *life*.

Please take time to check out his YT channel and see if he covers a favorite of yours. You might catch an interview with Ann Wilson of Heart, or Santana. Just... check it out, and I'd love to talk about this guy, the music, and the legends of Rock that inspire us today.

I love how we threw billions at making AI that can drive, realized AI can’t drive a car, then asked ourselves “okay, let’s see what other important decisions we can leave to AI”.

Nothing wrong with preferring it here and saying why, but some people just have to preen and it’s annoying

Too much Mastodon/Fediverse content is people bragging about how virtuous and principled they are for leaving Twitter.

I have yet to write a bio, but should let the fediverse know I am right-side disabled from a stroke, a gay man, a retired Navy Chief who spent four years in the Army in the 60s.
