covid, social change 

in germany, things that should become clearer with the #corona crisis:

- the meat industry needs to be stopped
- exploiting poor people from poorer countries in the meat and agriculture industry needs to be stopped
- car culture needs to be stopped
- excessive flying needs to stop
- people with kids need to be supported
- the police has to be abolished
- the medical sector should not be for profit but a public thing.

well,, it was all clear before corona.

My husband and his sister are designing a hovercraft shaped like a giant penis — "you ride on the balls!" so yeah social isolation is going great.

a ceo's legal responsibilities to the shareholders include pretending that their ancient shitty business model is still valid

Feature thought:

When replying to someone, what if their profile text was pulled up and placed somewhere near the box you were typing in, to give you a better idea of who the fuck they ARE in this modern nightmare hellscape free of all signifiers of a person beyond "their choice of username and maybe an icon, if you're lucky"?
