We passed the point of no return back in 2015 or 2016. If Anthropogenic climate change works exactly as scientists think it does, we’re already fucked.

Unless someone else came up with another arbitrary deadline since than.

Don’t humor him.

This old hat is too well worn. Time to toss it into the fire and get something nice for the autumn months.

You know, you’re not actually shocking anymore. You’re just sort of background noise.

Have you ever wondered why irreverant humor gets dull so fast? When you’re at 110% all the time, that becomes the new 100.

What was once amusing, or shocking, becomes the norm. Then, it goes from the norm to desperation. Like the last gasp of a raunchy shockjock throwing out a zinger at a cocktail party, only to be drown out by the new loudmouth on the block.

I love that I hate and hate that I love Bill Maher.

He’s an elitist Boomer asshat that’s so out of touch with the current generation yet also often decently accurate with his roasts and criticisms of it at the same time.

He’s basically a semi-necessary paradoxical evil if you will.

🤷‍♂️

Yeah I don’t really know what I’m trying to say either…

There is a very good reason I switch to organizational research.

We will need things like systems theory if we hope to prevent social and economic catastrophes.

Data entry and tax preparation/under writing jobs are rapidly going extinct, apparently.

I was reading a paper earlier how we are currently in the beginning of what is being described as the "Fourth Industrial Revolution". This one is far more different than the last 3.

For comparison, technology has advanced more swiftly in the last 10 years that the proceeding 100 combined. The disruptions to the global job market are immense, and recently have started to trickle even into the 3rd world.

This means that job loss through automation is not longer just a 1st world issue.

The global economy is not prepared for the full ramifications of this 4th revolution. Even less so of we cross the ever elusive Singularity.

That would require the wrinkled ballsack that currently runs Brazil even acknowledging that there is a problem.

He has thus far brushed it off as not an issue. Because he is a fucking idiot that I hope gets hit by a meteor.

Okay, one of the protesters just knocked at my gate and told me to sign the petition for the impeahment of our current association president for not showing up at us ever since we lost water supply which he never paid all our money he wasted for his own.

We were relentless all day long just to put him out of his status for good.
