YouTube just recommended a video titled "What Greta Thunberg does not understand about climate change, by Jordan Peterson"

Me: watches dozens of videos on home solar and electric cars.
YouTube: How about some climate change denial?

I replaced my old clunker with an electric car, the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV.

My kid nicknamed it Wattson.

I think it's rich for companies to use COVID-19 as an excuse for their long hold times, as if their hold times were any shorter before.

The amount of packaging waste is completely mind-boggling.

It's really telling that corporations use copyright to grant permanent ownership of products that don't create waste (intellectual property), but take no long-term ownership of products that create a massive burden on society.

Cops confiscated this sign 2 years ago from a Texas yard; their police chief was arrested Saturday for continuous sexual abuse of a child.

I dreamed that I woke up to a BBC headline that said "Ruth Bader Ginsburg DEAD"

Two weeks ago I installed a new dishwasher. While loading it the first time, I bumped my shin on the edge of it and got a pretty significant gash. Well, it just happened again, 2 inches from the previous spot.

Compartmentalize the various elements of our collective dystopia into manageable chunks of panic time.

It's an effort to depress testing and case numbers, as a political ruse. The problem is that sick people, hospitalizations, and deaths can't be as easily made invisible. This is a recipe for a nationwide disaster perpetrated by its leaders.

Trump is trying to kill us all.

I'm convinced Hasbro hires engineering dropouts to design these Transformers toys. They're just so bad. A 6 year old is supposed to be able to follow 30+ steps to turn Megatron into a tank??! And there are little pieces that get lost immediately, and it falls apart. It's just so bad.
