Heavily mutated coronavirus variant puts scientists on alert 

Saw someone say that dial-up wasn't "usable".

The modern web is the one that is unusable. You open a blank website and it has 478 trackers and runs some javascript heavier than Windows XP.

Don't let bigots thrive and baske in popularity while the marginalized people they hurt are forced to take up less space or leave altogether. Speak up if you can, especially if you can do so for someone who wouldn't be safe doing so. Lose friendships and relationships. I promise you will gain much better ones. Don't be a safe space for bigots.

Make racists afraid. Don't let people feel comfortable in their bigotry. Use the power of social stigma and disapproval to make it weird and uncomfortable to be racist.

Disband the RCMP

That big grant that I spent a month on, where I actually stood a good chance of getting funded for 4 years as a junior research group leader

It was just cancelled thanks to this:

I spent ~ a month on it for literally nothing
