High thought: a video non-game in the form of a 1st-person shooter, wherein each character you kill has a name, and your HUD fills up with the full list of people you've killed. You monster.

Yes, this is my contribution to the copyright duration discourse.

Our goal as leftists should be to disconnect labor from survival.

*All* people deserve to live and to thrive, not just those who do the work that we choose to call "labor".

*All* people deserve the choice of which way they will contribute to society.

22 years later and I'm *still* pissed at my Kansas State University Marlatt Hall RAs for dragging us across campus on Day One to wail "Every Breath You Take" at the residents of the all-women dorms. Fucked up stalker anthem heterosexual bullshit.

All day, I've been seeing "Rush" this and "Rush" that, without attaching the last name. It speaks to the man's 2021 relevance that I just now realized that people weren't coincidentally talking about Rush the prog rock band.

Hah! Love that Rush's death is trending with . Couldn't have happened to a nicer man... literally.

Pro tip to website publishers: "Please disable your ad blocker" is actually a clear invitation for the user to disable Javascript on your site. JS is a nuisance more than a benefit on most "content" sites anyway.

I had a dream that @meakoopa@twitter.com was hosting a podcast episode about John Carpenter's The Thing, and I was part of a cast of actors doing an intentionally unrehearsed performance of a few key scenes from the (non-existent) stageplay version of "Who Goes There?"

... but that nonsense grants an absolute power to the Supreme Court and federal judicial system to reinterpret the "right" in any way they see fit. Whether you support or oppose gun ownership, this is a terrible position for the US as a nation to be in. 3/3

Example: if one ignores the "well-regulated Militia" clause, the plain text of the 2nd Amendment guarantees a right for felony prisoners to carry guns while imprisoned. This interpretation is clearly nonsense... 2/3

Hot take: The US constitution is hot garbage and we should rewrite it to remove the blatant logical contradictions.

In particular, the concept of "rights" is self-contradictory, particularly the concepts of "natural rights" and "inalienable rights". 1/3

Free story idea: I just woke up from a dream where lovecraftian evil medical professionals were draining, filtering, and replacing someone's blood with the intent of making it compatible for the mind-controlling larvae of their Patron.
