@theamyblevins @jbrandimore @michelletandler No babies have not survived outside the womb at 20 weeks.
@rsg Lotta people have been writing on this for years and suggesting alternatives. What you fund can drive change here.
@oneunderscore__ this is not my area but it does seem like accelerationism's appeal to different subgroups/parties isn't particularly well-covered or well-understood?
@mmasnick Interest from audiences seeing it as yet another f-you to a company sucked into the culture wars?
@espiers i own those in silver. they have come a long way and use some kind of flexible jelly now...
@vgr This has been a gripe since Jurassic Park 1 in the 90s. “Deinonychus” lost out to the cooler name.
@DrPanMD @SSVMS @CMAdocs Those 17 doctors got a plaque already! There is nothing more we can do to honor their sacrifice…
@pt I can’t believe people are taking this seriously. That guy is not going to win a national election. How did this become a theme of the day?
@vgr You’ve done some phenomenal work there and built a really valuable community.
Wonder if we've hit the point where this content farm garbage is just written by some GPT-3-esque generator and the owners don't even bother to check for accuracy before sending it live...
Mocking humble-bragging as engagement bait...
@Klonick Those hydrangeas. My favorite. 😻
@CindyOtis_ Hope all is well…
@loobah_l No 🙂 I’ve still never actually been. Got a trip planned for this fall. Was supposed to go in Jan but Covid spiked and I couldn’t justify it with the kids.
@femmebot Yeah that makes sense. They seem to grow a bunch of Brazilian varietals - jaboticaba is on there sometimes but I’ve never bought it.
@danielmintz I’ve seen it but never tried it. It looks really cool.
@DavidCMurphy Status avocados. 💸
@dan_munz Oh man I order a couple times a year. It’s amazing. So many exotic random things.
Today in “exotic things I’ve bought from Miami Fruit”: long-neck 🥑. I couldn’t order these in CA & always wanted to try them. Now they’re in season so I got a box.
It’s significantly larger than a normal avocado (added for scale). Big pit. Very “juicy” not creamy. Good but odd.
@Verba_et_Vertus @sivavaid Also unsuccessful
@holden The propaganda lit is like this too. “Media literacy” tips for rhetorical and trope analysis developed in the 1930s. 🙂 This is why I’m increasingly convinced attention to design and emergent behavior from networks is where the really impactful potential is in the current system.
@rosssciarrillo @ArmandDoma @IDoTheThinking I mean sure if your liquor store has vegetables and pet food.
@ArmandDoma @IDoTheThinking Per the point about the rest of the world having them in addition to NYC but them being absent from many other America cities: yeah exactly. NYC is far more livable for a no-car walkable existence than virtually anywhere else in America.
@ArmandDoma @IDoTheThinking Only a few neighborhoods in SF seemed to have them. In NYC they’re everywhere and are often open 24 hours. They carry a lot more stuff; mine in the E Village had fresh foods & flowers in addition to the boxed/canned goods.
@RSButner But this is the age of influencer politicians pushing meme policies, and tweeting about being hard on Big Tech is more important than actually passing any legislation.
@RSButner This is why PATA and transparency bills matter. Unfortunately they aren’t as provocative as “stick it to the companies!” legislation that will not pass Congress now or in the foreseeable future.
@davekarpf @JamesGleick Like yeah I guess you can buy a nicer missile silo compound shelter but what kind of quality of life are your great-grandkids going to have?
@davekarpf @JamesGleick Are they though? This seems incredibly short-sighted.
@IDoTheThinking @Noahpinion Also Pete Buttigieg. Also on huge podcasts like Rogan. There is no reason not to counter-speak.
@geoffbelknap @WilliamTurton @JohnHultquist Assuming everyone in thread already knows about the 💩 controversy… this is just a run-of-the-mill identity transference situation
@JohnHultquist This guy played Blippi on the live show world tour and then kind of became the video guy too. Ppl in the mom group call him “Blurpi”. The kids don’t seem to notice?
