@Dawnz If his supporters can't get to work, no one will be able to feed their families. Where does this guy think food comes from? Does he think he can eat tweets?

@Mendieta I'm 48 years old and still an altar "boy." πŸ˜†

@Mendieta In addition to being one of the prayers after Low Mass, I like to recite this after praying the Rosary. It's beautiful and powerful.

Just a reminder: After the 2000 election, the U.S. didn't officially have a President-elect until December 12, and the world didn't come to an end.

@ParkerTechGuy Do you mean the kind of questions that people ask just to make sure the boss heard them ask a question?

@stux @ErrorThWolf0 Here it's usually the highest bid wins. Right now that's stux at $20.

@stux @ErrorThWolf0 Guys, we don't do Dutch auctions here. The prices go the other way.

@Dan_Ramos @ChrisWilson I'm kind of impressed. Abducted by aliens but still made it to school by third period. I probably would have called it a day.

@alex And then they wonder why they never got the e-mail.

I just finished watching Governor Ducey's press conference. After hearing the reporters' questions, you could be forgiven for thinking the most pressing issue facing Arizona right now is getting the governor to comment on matters that are ultimately not his to decide.

@shepard A few months ago I had a conversation with a Vietnamese friend who said he gets away with saying certain things because he isn't white. I told him it wouldn't be long before he and I were lumped in the same bucket. And here we are.

If you’re reading this and thinking, with all the pandemic fear, now is a terrible time to be at a cinema, let me say this: There may never be a better time to go to the movies! Due to all the temporary sanitation protocols, the screening room was cleaned so thoroughly between screenings, you could almost eat off the floor.

@lain I'm sure someone somewhere once said Facebook has no chance against MySpace.

@stux Other than in the most densely populated urban areas, the independent supermarket seems to be a thing of the past. I'm lucky to have a supermarket from a small, local chain within walking distance, but with all the competition it faces from global players, who knows how much longer it'll last.

@stux Interesting video. This is the consequence of letting central planners make development decisions. Where I live, mixed-use development is rarely allowed outside of urban areas and villages, and where it is allowed, it tends to be limited and unsuccessful. Worth noting: I see a similar trend when I visit Europe, particularly France. The giant parking lot around Carrefour is full of cars every time I'm there. No different than my nearby Walmart, except of course the cheese selection.

@hansw @freemo The moment he lets the algorithm into the wild, he makes none of us rich. πŸ˜‰
