Rest In Power my comrade ✊
too many local leftists are dying. it's heartbreaking and scary
"if you're worried about the slippery slope that comes from restricting nazi speech, why aren't you worried about the slippery slope that comes from letting nazis speak"
That's pithy and I'm definitely stealing it
From the first segment, "Against Free Speech Absolutism", of this podcast:
@denikombucha excuse me, but I believe the BURDEN OF PROOF is on you to prove that Crystal Pepsi wasn't, in fact, a better soda than New Coke.
I saw a Netflix documentary about it.
Also, I wrote a paper about it once in college. You hear that; college 🤙🤙
I have got to stop rolling cones. Since my smoking friend moved away it's now just too much for me to smoke alone
That said, smoke em if you got em and I got em
@BeingandZoe yeah, for sure. i dunno what you're relationship is to this person by it is a serious time commitment.
also, since it sounds like it isn't affecting his job, he might even get mad at you and not agree that it's even a problem; "you just need to loosen up" kind of response 😔
@BeingandZoe i dunno though, it is very context specific
in my personal experience when reacting to a situation involving a person with alcohol use disorder, the same respons could be the "right" thing to do or the "wrong" thing to do depending on where the other person's head is at during that moment of their life
@BeingandZoe if you're going to use the pants thing as a launching point to a longer discussion about their drinking and that maybe they should "get some help", then be around for the next several years as they go through that....then maybe?
if you're just going to say "hey, don't piss on my pants", then move out and never see them again...i'd say maybe say nothing. it is sad and they know that and it just might make them sad/ashamed/embarrassed
@BeingandZoe uh, yikes
but i guess it depends on what you mean by "sad drunk type" and if you plan on keeping in touch after moving out
@interneteh this is a bon appetit video? I'm not mad, I like bon appetit videos... Just not sure where the hot peppers come in
Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.
Pirate Sesame Street.
I keep hearing news shows quote that Trump tweet — "IN MY GREAT AND UNMATCHED WISDOM" — with a straight face. Like that ain't the most dictatorial thing you've heard in awhile
