RT @KamloopsArchaeo@twitter.com I have an idea instead of renaming Emily Carrโ€™s โ€˜Indian Churchโ€™.

"After watching 24-hour surveillance footage from around the world almost constantly for one week, my main takeaway is this: nothing is happening, most of the time." vice.com/en_us/article/neknmx/

It's 2048. Elon-bros leverage their PravdaCorp monopoly on quantum battery patents to negotiate a defence pact with the nano-AI armies of the NeoRussian Empire, and both forces are soon under the control of Czar Ivanka II. The age of the Muskovites has begun.

Controversial opinion: The Expanse is actually a Stargate prequel.

Even though he saved a cool sci-fi show, Bezos still oversees a multi- billion-dollar vampire corporation that is sucking everyone's blood until they die just to make him even richer.

RT @reneehlozek@twitter.com Yikes, great to recall the announcement of the Plaskett telescope in Victoria, terrible reminder of the racism of the time too.

Short background thread on Plaskett and his settler-colonialist history of astronomy.
