The General Conference for Weights and Measures should replace the Un. They have more experience making rules for rulers.

My grandma was atching something on tv whose title translates to "I don't know what this is about, but I don't agree".

I immediately hated the title. And it took me a good 20 minutes of stewing in that hate to realize, I don't know what this show is about, but I don't agree.

How good are you at telling apart real social media accounts from paid Russian troll farm social media accounts? A quiz.

(I got 6/8. It's hard! I think my main takeaway is that some real people are happy to behave exactly like paid Russian troll farm accounts, for free)

So many companies out here reinventing phrenology with AI.

Went to wikipedia to see who the fuck is this Boebert person.

"Boebert owns Shooters Grill, a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado, where staff members are encouraged to openly carry firearms"

Tell me this isn't true. Tell me y'all haven't elected a fucking caricature of 'murica as a politician. Tell me someone just vandalized the page and she's just the mundane sort of horrible politician.

Now that the US is going tits up, what's gonna replace English as the lingua franca of the internet? Because the rest of us are getting tired of having to deal with your shit everywhere, but still want to be able to talk to each other.

So, are we going back to French? Or we all gonna learn German
