reminder that George Orwell was in favor of what is now known as "political correctness," which he, in fact, considered to be "only the most ordinary politeness"

@OCRbot

also interesting is that he considers it debatable whether it's even OK to fly the Union Jack - "perhaps..."

some malaphors I think about:

-we'll burn that bridge when we get to it
-if you can't stand the bull, get out of the china shop
-where there's smoke, there's mirrors
-fool me once, shame on you; teach a man to fool me, and I'll be fooled for the rest of my life
-come back to haunt you in the ass
-lets not beat around the dead horse
-beauty is in the eye of the tiger
-burning daylight at both ends
-apples to apples, dust to dust
-a stone in the hand is worth two birds in the bush

Imagine if Amazon was run as a cooperative, and the money generated by the workers went to them instead. Amazon could literally hire 10 times as many people, and have each employee work 1/2 a day a week while getting the same salary they get now. The only reason that's not happening is because a guy named Jeff takes the lion share of the profits.

If 'good sci fi' means sticking to outdated and often racist/sexist western ideals that deify a masculinity that simply doesn't exist and denigrate women as 'weak' and require saving, you're not really a fan of sci fi.

You're just a bigot. You don't care about story, narrative, plot, etc.

You just want a version of you that doesn't exist to be validated.

Review bombing a flick isn't going to change that fact.

For today's #SareeStyle post, a blue blockprint with embroidered border. Worn with a bland blouse spiced up with a tie-up halter. And for modesty and cooler weather, a denim shirt and tan boots. #IWear #Saree

To everyone who read about ICE’s fake University of Farmington scam to honeypot legal residents and Indian students minding their own fucking business IN INDIA and took from that “THIS IS Y YOU VOTE FOR THE LESSER OF 2 EVILS! LESSER EVIL IS STILL LESS EVIL!” That DHS program was greenlit in 2015. Dumbass.

@dankwraith the BBC knows firsthand what it's like to be a nationalized industry. they don't like it. industries not liking to be nationalized is an important clue that it's good to nationalize them

:dopeswim: Did you know?

:dopefish: The Netscape Fishcam was the second public #webcam on the web. It went online in 1994 and it let you watch the Netscape office aquarium via a secret shortcut in Netscape Navigator by holding CTRL+ALT+F. I was a fan!

The camera survived the closure of Netscape and it's still online today as The Amazing Fishcam.

:dopeburp: Go on and take a look!
