A discussion I saw got me thinking about the scale of a billion dollars when translated into time.
 
1 second equals 1/60 a minute
 
10 seconds equals 1/6 a minute
 
100 seconds equals 1 2/3 minutes.
 
1,000 seconds equals 17 minutes rounded up.
 
10,000 seconds equals 3 hours rounded up.
 
100,000 seconds equals 1 day 6 hours rounded up.
 
1,000,000 seconds equals 12 days rounded up.
 
10,000,000 seconds equals 120 days rounded up.
 
100,000,000 seconds equals 3 years rounded…down.
 
1,000,000,000 seconds equals 30 years. Rounded down.
 
Helps put in perspective how a simple added zero or comma breaks the scale.

African American shot by police: “I bet he shoplifted when he was twelve. Notice how he didn’t comply within half a second? He might have had a gun in his shoe!”
White woman shot by police: “She was innocently participating in a violent insurrection attempting to overthrow a democratically elected government! She didn’t deserve to be shot!”
 
I cannot stress enough - that’s what they think we’re doing.
They don’t know how reasons work. All they hear is us excusing these shootings, but condemning those shootings, so it must be exactly the same as them excusing those shootings, but condemning these shootings. We just like different victims and make up whatever excuses those conclusions.
We expect they’re trying to be rational, because we try to be rational. They expect we’re making shit up, because they make shit up. Their worldview is unshaken by contradiction because they think that’s normal.
This is a Theory Of Everything for conservative bullshit. They deny any basis for objectively evaluating claims. Making shit up is what words are for. All facts are opinions. All belief is interpersonal trust. All argument is ingroup loyalty. If this was how you approached the world, why would internal consistency matter? Who cares if what you’re saying is “true?” What is the difference between the expertise to know something and the authority to declare something, if reality is a team sport?

Social engineering has gone through a definition change.
 
The orginal concept was about psychological manipulation for personal gain, referring to everything from fake relationships, to phishing attacks, to catfishing.
 
Now, its grown to encompass social planning and other societal functions of ambiguous morality.

Aside from being something of a strawman, the quote overlooks that conspiracy theorists, even right-wing ones, don’t always agree on the kind of reality they inhabit. They may coalesce behind certain leaders for one reason, and then abandon them for another. I’m not a utilitarian, but it’s much easier to understand conspiracies when you look at the actions of their believers rather than the content of the beliefs themselves.
 
There’s a non-zero number of people out there who went from supporting Trump to supporting Biden because they think Biden is Trump in a skinsuit.

What might had happened if the cops let Ashly Babbitt through in the Capitol Riots? Would she attack and try to murder politicians?
 
The far-right have been making her their martyr as their equivalent for George Floyd. And now her husband is suing the cop who shot her.

California because now it’s gonna be more difficult for people to move out into Texas and accidentally inflate the house prices
 
It’s not just Texas that Commiefornians want to move to. Nevada, Utah, and Arizona seem to be popular choices. I hear states like Tennessee, Georgia and Florida are good ones for former Commiefornians, too.

Aren’t these the people who complain about warning labels? “If you break into the Capitol and start crawling through windows like a f*cking zombie horde, you may be shot” is right up there with “suit does not enable you to fly.”

Also the problem is that post implies the libertarian party of NH would oppose investigating police shootings of black people, while no post has been made that says they have. They may have in the past, Twitter posters are awfully hypocritical and emotional, but without bothering to make a post showing it it just makes the poster look dumb.

The G7 has wrapped and here are the resolutions.
 
G7 nations- pledge at least 1 Billion covid vaccine doses to developing nations.
 
  • a 15% minimum corporate tax in all affiliated nations
     
    -a transition to green energy and a renewed focus on global infrastructure
     
    -support for a global girls education initiative
     
  • a new investigation into the origins of covid
     
  • a joint denunciation of China on human rights abuses
     
  • and a joint statement on Russia harboring hackers and other malicious actors.
     
     
    These resolutions only have as much teeth as each of the nations want to give them, so there’s no guarantee that any of them will pan out.

How little teeth does it have? Despite the pledge, one of America’s sanctions on Venezuela includes blocking Covid vaccines.
 
America really needs Venezuela to fail in order to turn it into a boogeyman.
