I wish FB would pay me to not use their platform.

I'd like to see an IQ study done evaluating the differences (if any) between those who frequently use social media, and those who do not. Maybe I'll fund this, and if my hypothesis is correct, launch a social platform for non-social platform consumers.

Works for me too.

Does anyone else remember Internet before HTTP? I can't say specifically*, but it was 'a place for everything and everything in it's place'.

*Rules #1 and #2. Maybe I can point to the alt.* hierarchy.

Million dollar idea for the day;

A forum in which members must achieve a minimum IQ score, and perhaps identify blatantly false news stories.

It would be imperfect, like everything, but still better.

She was literally the only good thing about that NBC Town Hall. Seeing her being a decent human being in the background saved me from having to look at the train wreck of a psychotic Barbie doll gnashing her teeth at Donald Trump.

Never much liked music videos but that was among the best. A lot of thought and effort went into that.

The thought I proposed on Scott's daily video today was;

"What I haven't heard discussed is DOES FALSE CONFIDENCE IN THE EFFICACY OF MASK WEARING RESULT IN MORE SPREAD? In other words, if the mask generally conveys a 30% reduction (hypothetically) in transmissibility, but gives the wearer confidence to go out into public more often, or be in closer proximity to people, or congregate with larger groups... or any of the other things way more effective at mitigating spread, then that confidence in mask wearing is counterproductive."

It's like when there's a plandemic and people stop driving, but the temperature goes up instead of down, because less aerosols?

YouTube video description by the founder and rhythm guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch.

Quote:
America is a beautiful idea that draws immigrants like myself from all over the world to the promised land of equality, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This idea is now under siege and certain events are starting to remind me of the things many of us came here to escape... It’s not a “left against right” problem but an evolutionary problem. The growing pains of a civilization that without the necessary spiritual enlightenment, arrived a bit early to a level of technology where everyone is connected. The good news is that now everyone has a voice. The bad news is that now everyone has a voice. So we are living in the manipulators’ paradise, where liars and hypocrites run unscathed, the news are just opinions, politics are a blood sport, and facts are determined by consensus instead of the truth. We as artists, however, have a unique opportunity to portray and ridicule the absurd to prevent it from becoming reality.

- Zoltan Bathory

Again we are reminded that the USA is unique. Here, unlike any other country, by immigrants seeking a better life.



It’s a shame “we” need reminding constantly...
