If we treated computer problems the same absurd way doctors treat people with conditions like & :

"Look, the antivirus scan was negative. There's nothing wrong with your computer. You need to work on your dysfunctional beliefs about ransomware and just start using your files regularly again."

So... I'm turning this into an ongoing thread about .

2. "Pandemics disable people — the history lesson that policymakers ignore"

"Influenza, polio and more have shown that infections can change lives even decades later. Why the complacency over possible long-term effects of COVID-19?"

"From the beginning of this pandemic, people with disabilities understood that the disease would target them and would swell their ranks."

Ongoing thread.

1. "Why NTs think you need to try harder."

"People that don't struggle with executive dysfunction (specifically, with initiating) assume that we're not trying hard enough because the space between 'trying' to do something and doing it is so small, it's imperceptible to them."

tech companies at hackathons needs to diversify the swag they give out. if you want the best talent to remember your name don't give us cheap nylon bags and t-shirts. the inclusion of cat ears and thigh high socks will help you find some of the best programmers around. trust me.

It's frankly terrifying how ingrained white supremacy is in our institutions, and how brazen the white supremacists have become.

being fat is bad for your health but only because the medical establishment (as well as the rest of society) treats fat people so much worse for it

"We find that these apps tell Google when message/phone calls are made/received. The data sent by Google Messages includes a hash of the message text, allowing linking of sender and receiver in a message exchange, and by Google Dialer the call time and duration, again allowing linking of the two handsets engaged in a phone call. Phone numbers are also sent to Google. In addition, the timing and duration of user interactions with the apps are sent to Google. There is no opt out from this data collection. The data is sent via two channels, the Google Play Services (i) Clearcut logger and (ii) Google/Firebase Analytics. This study is therefore one of the first to cast light on the actual telemetry data sent by Google Play Services, which to date has largely been opaque"
