@dankwraith I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if I was a highly coordinated team of extremely athletic men with near-unlimited access to wooden clubs, I would simply solve the billionaire owner problem myself.

When there's vegetable replacements for meat products, I wish they would give not just the actual nutritional value, but also how that differs from the same mass of the meat product it's supposed to be replacing

Like, okay it's 3% of my daily sodium, but how does that compare to if I had eaten that same amount of beef?

i want to note that statue removal is not empty gesture. it is a symbol of power and the kind of history we want to reproduce, and activists have demanded for them to be removed for a long time. renaming a street to black lives matter avenue is not anything anyone has demanded though

"Galaxy's Child" is a parasocial horror story of a kind I would like to see more of.

Boy, "Data's Day" is the Autistic Experience and I am loving every second of it.

I just learned about a neat analogue between PIE and Arabic, namely the roots *peḱ- and غ ن م (ḡ-n-m) respectively. The former originally referred to livestock, but many of its descendants (fee, pecunia) refer to wealth. The inverse is true of غ ن م, whose derivatives generally refer to booty but sometimes refer to small cattle, e. g. غنم (sheep), غَنَّام‎ (shepherd).
