I found some assignments from school, one of them was from "journalling class", describe a "perfect day", what would it look like? And it's scary how much of what made it up was stuff beyond my control...like what the weather would be like or revolved around what other people did. I'm glad that the shit I went through since then has beat that mindset out of me. 😂

Far from checking the spread of immorality, repression has always extended and deepended it. Thus it is futile to oppose it by rigorous legislation which trespasses on individual liberty.

Is it not possible to export chat history on Telegram anymore? I've found guides to do it, but it looks like the option has been removed? But I can't find any mention of it being removed.

Everyone complains about politicians. Everyone says they suck. But where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky; they don't pass through a membrane from a separate reality. They come from American homes, American families, American schools, American churches, and American businesses. And they're elected by American voters. This is what our system produces, folks. This is the best we can do.
-- George Carlin

Hi, it's me. With another Pop Shot. Pop Shots are short info posts about pop culture for nerds and other people who don't give a fuck but don't want to seem clueless. Disney live-action remakes are thing for some reason. Don't bother with Lion King. Aladin is ok. K-Pop is popular for some reason and definately should not be because preformers are essentially hyper stressed-out slaves. Kay, I love you, bye-bye!

Public Library Receipt Shows How Much Money You’ve Saved by Borrowing Books, Instead of Buying Them

Before I even read the books for kids, my dad was reading the adult ones and I had listened to the radio drama. This was late 90's. But even before that, my grandfather was into this stuff and since I can remember, listened to a TV preacher who spoke about nothing but end times. I lived in a terrifying alternate reality until early adulthood.

I was between 12 and 14 when the Left Behind for kids books came out and I remember reading them. It was traumatic. My favourite character even got killed off...

Red flag laws sound fairly sensable to me. It's very limited and follows due process.

Bee 1:

"The hive isn’t our property though, it belongs to the beekeepersl We can't take what Isn‘t ours. That's stealing!"

Bee 2:

"Listen to what I'm trying to tell you, Comrade. The hive doesn't belong to the beekeepers! The hive is the product of our labor! We built it, they Just put it in a box and called it theirs! Now they get all the surplus honey and we get barely enough to survive! That's the real theft!"

A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance, nor wish it to prevail through the power of the majority. There is but little virtue in the action of masses of men.
