Is this "Susan Collins furrowed brow" concerned or actually going to do something concerned because honestly the former is just a PR CYA and isn't worth the paper it was written on. arstechnica.com/gaming/2021/11…


The older generation taught those of us with privilage that racial and sexist inequality was over, but we should always stand up against injustice and inequality. Then we began discovering and pointing out injustice and they instead decided to cling to that first part and reject the latter that they taught us.


Wow! This whole thread! I'm saving that offline for my own personal archival purposes.

This is an attempt to use identity politics, perpetual grievance/victimhood, and the exploitation of neuropsychological fear responses to manipulate the majority demographic (and what will most likely be the party in power in 2022) to react/govern as a persecuted minority. 1/ twitter.com/BillKristol/st…

Yeah certainly this is not a new phenomenon.
Although, of course, "Bill Kristol". I'm never entirely sure whether Kristol and his type are ever honestly shocked at the state of the Republican Party/base, or if they just feign shock in hopes that this will somehow make a difference ... to ... someone?

Analysis: U.S. wants more oil, but OPEC+ can't turn on the tap much harder

U.S. pressure on OPEC+ to pump more oil and cool red-hot crude prices has shone a spotlight on a relatively new problem for the producer group: it doesn't have much extra capacity to hike output faster, even if it wanted to.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, known as OPEC+, are unwinding record supply curbs made in 2020 when demand cratered, but not fast enough for Washington which is fretting about prices near three-year highs. ...

Every time someone says that 'making it harder to drive will need radical changes' show them this.

Creating current car dependency was only possible with a massive, decade-long and destructive effort to erase the city as we knew it.

I dunno–the city as we knew it was gone for at least a century and a half already. Horses, hitching posts, hitching rails, watering troughs, dirt or cobblestone roads, all-wood residences lit with water gas, with cattle barns so close to town that one well-placed kick of a cow could burn a city the size of Chicago completely to the ground.
@Clara Listensprechen I don't think the point of the visualization is advocating for statis. I think it's about recognizing how dramatic we transformed the city for cars etc. when we talk about transforming it in less aggressive ways for more ecological and human friendly transportation etc.


Yeah the late-70s/early-80s cars were just horrible. I thought maybe it was just they didn't age well but nope. They looked like shit when they were brand new and they weren't good products either. arstechnica.com/cars/2021/11/w…

@manuelcaeiro ☕ I'm digging this list enough to reshare it in its own post but I so don't agree with the Mustang and Fiero. The Fiero on style but that thing was a fire/explosion hazard. The 1978-1989 911 on the other hand I think was the pinnacle gen of that car.


#slavery
The last time the west didn't have some form of slavery/serfdom prior to the American civil war and then they just used union busting tactics, what when the Persians invaded Greece.


#pseudo-science
Another example of why people are so medically misinformed. I want to know if ox bile salts will help with my reflux. Google suggested 15 different sources on it in one page. The one I KNEW was going to be accurate from Harvard had a $5 pay wall. The rest are all dubious and trying to sell you the product.
