Enjoy what time you have, because who knows when it will run out? With the odds stacked against us as they are, I am more focused on enjoying the present. I've prepped a lot for the future, but I have few illusions about how much those plans mean if the hammer really comes down.

I've never understood the draw of Twitter. Half of the posts here are just links to Twitter. I tried it out many years ago, but everything about its design and maneuverability was so cumbersome that I dumped it after a week. The limitation on characters seems like just one more example of the limited attention span of the modern world.

I remember someone on r/conspiracy about 10 years ago claiming that about 1/5th of the population are members of the satanic temple. They claimed they would go to regular church on Sunday morning and then go to black mass on Sunday night. Ritual abuse was just part of their upbringing.

No idea how true that was, but it really made me wonder just how big these secret societies could be. If you could pull strings on that large of a pool in the population, you would never have to worry about losing total control over the world.

Anyone who has read The Wheel of Time might recognize the similarities to dark friends being everywhere. Did Robert Jordan have some insight into how prevalent the darkness really was in our world?

Like passports surviving a jet collision with a skyscraper. This is so scripted you would need to be blind not to see it.

Eventually they will make all thought crimes retroactive and go through internet archives to hunt down offenders and bring them to court.

Lawyers have become such a parasite on society.

I heard my first train horn modded truck after moving out to the country about a year ago. It made my day.

Everywhere I go in these rural communities there are "Fuck Joe Biden" banners in front yards and "Trump won!"

It really makes me want to put my own banner up that says "Fuck all politicians, billionaires, and larpers".

1984 was spot on with how to control the masses. Even people who have read it and understand it are falling for these divide and conquer tactics.

By that explanation, the building blocks of life could just exist and spontaneously assemble throughout the universe in a cyclic manner.

At the end of the day, our minds just can't comprehend the concept of something without a beginning.

The question was posed, "how did life come from non-life?" My point is that this same question can apply to intelligent design as well. Where did the creator come from? If the Creator was always there, why couldn't the recipe for life always have existed as well?

Personally, I believe there is a creator, albeit one that bears no resemblance to the scriptures. I think we are probably in some kind of nested simulation. Just like any creation scenario, the question will always be how the first one came into being. Maybe as creatures who see beginnings and endings hundreds of times a day, our minds just can't comprehend the idea of something with no beginning.

I'm hoping the vaxxed start dying at an accelerated rate before the gas trucks stop rolling in. Otherwise, there will be a lot more starving zombies looking for you and your food.

That still leaves the question of who created the creator. Same conundrum.

I couldn't agree more. My only interest is that I will eventually find enough pieces of this crazy puzzle to make sense of this strange reality show we call life. I'm probably the equivalent of an NPC questioning the nature of the game we are in with the vain hope that there is more meaning to life than some teenagers entertainment.

I didn't realize we had a dictionary bot on the .win communities. While the dictionary references are interesting, exploring the etymology of each word tends to ignore the colloquial meaning they have acquired. This results in a lot of off-topic word salad that doesn't add anything of relevance to the conversation. If this is just a playground for developing your own style of long-winded discourse, then I suppose it doesn't matter. If, however, you are attempting to participate in these discussions with relevant feedback, I suggest you try a different approach that doesn't result in the majority of people skipping past your comments as soon as they see your username.

How many times can something become orders of magnitude more transmissable before someone in Africa sneezes and someone in Alaska catches it? The whole premise for the original supposed strain was that it was so virulent that you could catch it in a room 3 weeks after an infected person was in there. Remember how it stayed on cardboard for 3 days or more? Remember being told to soak all of your produce in toxic sludge to decontaminate it?

With each variant they claim it is twice or more transmissable. If that were really the case, everyone would catch it within a few weeks of its appearance.

But yeah, we will definitely be going for another ride on this merry-go-round. Whatever they did to dumb people down over the last 70 years definitely worked.

That's an interesting observation. So should we be admiring mean drunks for having the ability to restrain their natural aggressive behavior while sober (assuming they know enough to stay away from alcohol once they discover how they are when drunk)?

I don't remember exempting myself from humanity. I have the same ridiculous drive for attention that other people do, albeit is expressed quite differently. You can be a human and still mock our silly mating rituals.

The Paxlovid EUA is for high-risk people. In the Test to Treat centers, patients are instructed to bring a list of medications with them and to ask the healthcare provider at the center if they are eligible for oral antiviral treatment.

Seems to coincide with eugenics principles of removing the weak from the population.

I'll be curious to see the fallout from the pills in the coming years. Which vector will they use to purge those high risk undesirables?

Controversial Platform Lets You Be the Star of Your Own Reality Show.

If you think Instagram is a platform for whores to advertise, this takes it to the next level.

I know that's a pretty harsh word, but I'm seriously disgusted with what social media has done with women.

Yeah, we used to look as large as Jupiter before the world trees that pushed the atmosphere hundreds of miles further up were mined. All of the precious metals and minerals were the veins in the trees.

The miners seeded the human race to mine out the dregs of what was left in the crust like termites. They'll be back to pick all of the ore up after we finish pulling it all to the surface.

They are working on the other planets right now. That's where the rings on Saturn came from; they lob the decimated trees up into orbit for their cargo ships to scoop up after they bring them down.

The only difference between a gas giant and a rocky planet is that one has already been mined.

That's what I heard, anyway.
