Happy Hump Day! Again, just some photos and notes today on our trip from Watson Lake, Yukon Territory to Tok, Alaska. Normal weekly links posts will be back next week. It’s interesting to note that on the Alaska Highway you don’t cross the Continental Divide until well past Watson Lake, about 1/4 of the way […]
Well, the teachers unions fucked themselves over by refusing to go back to doing the shitty job they’ve been doing for the last 50 years. Enough people are now wise to the public teaching scam that the state reps aren’t running scared (for now).

Folks, I ran into Peter’s piece when I was reading various blogs and looking for information. He is right. I also question in how far does the “unpersoning” go?

Jimmy Fallon may have booked one of the biggest social media stars on his show with Addison Rae, but not everyone is excited about the TikTok celebrity’s late night stint. Rae, who appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallonlast Friday (March 26), joined Fallon on stage to show off some the dances she performs TikTok; but users of the platform were quick to point out that it wasn’t Rae who originated the choreography — it was mostly Black creators who weren’t receiving the same credit or attention.

Not long after it was posted on Friday, the clip went viral as people began to call out Fallon for featuring Rae, who is white, performing the dances, and not the Black creators who first introduced them, per Buzzfeed. Fallon also left out the names of the creators, leaving Rae as the face of some of the most popular dances.

Science doesn’t give shit about your “feewings”, you dumb bitch.

The only doom you really worry about is that people are fed-up with your bullshit and the CDC is about to go back to being the worthless nobodies they’ve been for decades.
