They are really trying to kill their base!

I hope this turns out to be fake.

Why, a normal person would ask, would the government OF ANY COUNTRY would want to recognize your face IN THE WOODS?
There has got to be something in the water. It is the sole explanation.

To be fair, some people may have not been watching the news and thought it was just normal rain. Still a bit douchy, but not as much. The real culprit is the restaurant manager, imho, for taking the order.

The Demon Haunted World should be mandatory reading. Together with The Dragons of Eden, it was Sagan's most interesting book in explaining how science is our best protection from obscurantism. Plus, it was the book in which he developed his Bull**** Detection Kit, which needs to be updated to include the nefarious effects of Social Media, but it is still totally valid.

What's up with the cost of air purifiers? Am I missing something? Not understanding why a good deal of them are over $300 (and I don't mean Dyson).

It's amazing that this is 'news' today - because it has been so incredibly obvious for a couple of decades, and people have been warned about it.
The harm it does has been obvious, as has the fact that the companies simply don't care, as long as there is money to be made.

That it's being presented as a 'revelation' is just as disturbing as the information itself...

A little bit of positive news:
Colorado's Polis marries longtime partner in first same-sex marriage for a sitting governor

This, together with the recent news of Pete Buttigieg's announcement that he and his husband* had welcomed two children, is a good sign of progress. The news of an openly gay political figure getting married to his same sex partner was unthinkable as little as 20 years ago. Now, it is not even the top headline in your news feed.

I know, I know, I know. There are still plenty of places where this is frowned upon, and there is a lot to do still. Progress does not mean perfect. But it is progress, and it is welcomed.
Off Topic
* Another sentence that was unthinkable 20 years ago.

Do you know how these things are arranged practically these days? Biologically only one of them could be a father and a mother is still needed. Maybe technology will change it soon, but it's not there yet. A bit easier for two women obviously.
