Every heartwarming human interest story in america is like "he raised $20,000 to keep 200 orphans from being crushed in the orphan-crushing machine" and then never asks why an orphan-crushing machine exists or why you'd need to pay to prevent it from being used.

Wearing a mask is not comfortable.
Here’s why I wear one anyway.
RT’s would be appreciated.
.@CaseyNewton@twitter.com's interview with @firstname.lastname@example.org is an incredibly compelling pitch for a new model of journalism, and I'm going to be extremely interested to see whether it succeeds. https://onezero.medium.com/casey-newton-on-leaving-the-verge-for-substack-and-the-future-of-tech-journalism-974a646375fa
Malaria was endemic to much of the Southern and Eastern U.S. It still would be, too, were it not for massive federal public health efforts to eliminate it from the 1930s to the ‘50s. The agency founded to complete that task was the CDC. Malaria is why the CDC is based in Atlanta. https://twitter.com/devisridhar/status/1308003802340098053
(1/2) Out running this morning on a new route and a lady runs past me.
Despite only passing, when I get home @Strava@twitter.com automatically tags her in my run. If I click on her face it shows her full name, picture and a map of her running route (which effectively shows where she lives)
Reason #239383 of why the cost comparison of fossil fuel vs renewables is so horribly flawed & misleading - the actual costs of fossil fuel to human civilization is often just written off. Apparently, fossil fuel companies can just abandon their duty & let society pick up the tab
It's amazing how little we know about the damage we've done to the earth and the ecosystem! Hats off to the warriors attempting to salvage https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2020-09-17/abandoned-gas-wells-are-left-to-spew-methane-for-eternity?sref=ubZrhLHZ
I wonder if Twitter does this to fictional characters too.
Life-sized Gundam in Yokohama is now in testing mode.
During the lockdown I decided to document all the stages we passed and make a drawing of them. Here is the result.

Me attending zoom calls in the morning. Not enough time to get all the caffeine in the bloodstream to be a normal functioning hooman.
This is Ripley. It’s her first day of zoom classes. Not exactly what she was expecting. Way fewer zoomies than the name implies. 13/10
I still can't believe that the trick to defeating journalism was to just be so openly evil that reporting on it accurately sounds partisan.
Twitter should provide this as a Tweet template for nuanced arguments.
Otherwise in this nuance-free cesspool, it is very difficult to publish an opinion, before a bunch of idiots jump in, who think their logically fallacious arguments are really intelligent responses.
Updated thanks to some discussion in the replies.
At the core of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s extraordinary life was a simple conviction: “Women belong,” she said, “in all places where decisions are being made.”

Most topics have nuances. Don't let people turn complex issues into black-and-white arguments to suit their point of view.
In video meetings it's a hassle to unmute just to say one word especially if someone else is speaking. I created a video lens that uses hand gestures to show comic-book style messages instead. So far it's been pretty fun!
