"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

@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 🤙🤙

:weed: 

@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

@denikombucha @dragon something my mother swears by to water plants that are sensitive to too much water is to just drop ice cubes on the soil.

I guess the idea is they melt slowly enough to not overwhelm the the plant and it is harder to over-water because you know how many cubes you are putting on

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.

Fuck capitalism.

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
