Nobody seems to know anything beyond the specialized bubbles of their neighborhood and their workplace. It’s like living in a gilded palace, but nobody remembers who built it or what it’s purpose was. And ~50% of the population is deranged mutants. Maybe I should write a story...
    Keep reinfecting how? Masks that aren't disposable need to be washed regularly.

    I keep telling locals that masks protect others and if someone could invent a reasonably priced one that protected the wearer, they'd make a fortune and people would be more likely to comply. They're all like "Muh Freedumb is more important."

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I saw a story posted about a girl who apparently got some sort of bronchial infection and her family said it was from rebreathing what she was breathing into the mask, like she wasn't expelling the bacteria so it became more concentrated or something. It sounded super sketchy to me, but that's the sort of thing circling FB that's making people believe this stupid stuff.

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    Nikocado Avocado is so disgusting. He poops himself the second time on Youtube. In case if you don't know who Nikocado Avocado is well he's a Youtuber who eat junk food for his video content. The guy act like a newborn baby. I really can't stand him and his relationship with his husband is horrible and fake as well.

    When people are scared, unable to control things, and take information from unreliable sources, they resort to magic and superstition.

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    This is a rant but it's not about humanity (for once!) My new cordless cellular blackout shades have been up for a week, and this morning one broke. SO off we go with reorder/refund/etc. They just don't make stuff like they used to.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Why can some people learn to accept my reading about Jungkook's future spouse on Youtube? This idiot who happens to be female said that I'm lying about BTS member Jungkook's future spouse being black. I explain to her that my reading is never one and she still called me a liar. I've been reading tarot for 12 years and I'm very accurate with my reading about by 99% of the time. It very clear that she's racist and I can spot it a mile away.

    Re: The Rant Thread (v 1.2)

    Just how stupid people are they anyway? There was a comment on one of my YouTube videos saying that I talk like a woman and claiming that I am a woman. First off I was born a man and that how I normally talk. I do stuttered in my videos. Just because you think that I sound feminine in my videos doesn't mean that I am one. Like seriously people really need to get their facts straight.

    Re: The Rant Thread (v1.3)

    my school is driving me absolutely crazy, as usual. I missed a deadline for paperwork after trying to make an appointment for like three months. The person was on maternity leave, but had no replacement, and their secretary never responded to my emails. Now that I've emailed the general undergrad department I finally get a response, which is to be told I should make an electronic appointment as per the welcome email- which I'd been trying to do before the welcome email even came out. I didnt use the appointment maker because the appointment app didnt seem to have the specific thing I needed in it's super specific drop down, so I emailed the department asking where I should make an appointment. This is such a waste of time, especially since the appointment I've now made is a week away. It's so frustrating. I'm not even really sure what the consequences for missing the deadline are and the deadline is rather arbitrary anyway since it isn't an administrative time limit and it's due during a time when all the secretaries are busy.
