'Twas ever thus, unfortunately, only more so now than ever, thanks to social media. When I cite Brandolini's Law now, I say it's wrong not in concept but in magnitude. It's now takes *at least* 2 or 3 orders of magnitude more energy to refute bullshit than it does to produce it.

It looks as if our immunity from the vaccine will weaken a little, making it spread easier without symptoms. But it will be spreading even more than delta, hurting the unvaxxed even worse. The vaccinated may be able to spread it better with mild or no symptoms. Like Mu, omicron has the potential to mutate into something even worse. Getting an omicron booster ready might provide us with some added protection from the next mutation it takes on.

Jared Kushner is raising BILLIONS from Saudi Arabia (on top of ~$90 million while Trump was in office) and Hunter Biden took $30 million to help secure cobalt for a Chinese company (important for electronics). Corrupt elitist failsons are great evidence of imperial decline



After a yearlong battle, Indian farmers have forced Narendra Modi to repeal his neoliberal farm laws. The movement that took on Modi and won is a powerful blow against India’s ruling Hindu nationalists. jacobinmag.com/2021/11/indian…

Advertising "art as investment" or "wine as investment" instead of more traditional avenues makes me cringe. This isn't going to end well for so many of the people who buy into this snake oil pitch.

But but but, wine is up 999% since in 1942! I admit i read the vinovest site, then moved on.
"Buy low sell high" still applies. Buying at todays prices is a fool's errand except for the seller.

As a musician and lifelong @thebeatles fan, the Get Back doc is a huge gift I never expected to see. It’s like what I’d expect heaven to be like…you get to hang out with The Beatles

Thank you, Peter Jackson,
for putting it together. And to everyone else for letting it happen

For history or nostalgia, here's the local newspaper from 41 years ago covering the murder of John Lennon.

John Lennon’s Death as Reported in the Clarksburg Telegram Dec 9, 1980 – Part 1 – Shuttersparks

Quite the news collection represented there.

(For many of the same reasons I find present news so painful to read, old newspapers are a source of fascination.)
Same here. I pored over every page, enjoying the nostalgia resulting from the style of writing, the style of advertising art, especially the drawings for women's clothing. It's all classic stuff for one from my generation. A pleasant relief from the vulgarly jaded world of today.

...never handled a beading needle, eh? Moron. (yes, while doing bead embroidery with the tiny seed beads one CAN poke oneself. It's the only reason I had to get a freakin Tetanus shot!




UK, Germany and Italy latest to find infections of new coronavirus variant as South Africa condemns travel curbs.





The fact that some people can't distinguish between etymology and entomology bugs me in ways I can't put into words.

Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News has been labelled as the "Bullshit Factory" by Jim Acosta.

For good reason too. They were heavily promoting Trump's FALSE conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

They have misled their viewers about Covid-19 & the vaccine.

Without Rupert Murdoch's FOX - there's no Dubya, no forever wars killing >5,000 of my Brothers and Sisters.

Without FOX, there's no Trump**. No 800,000 COVID dead.

Without FOX - our National Debt is about $20 Trillion less.

Maybe you should read more.
