Food prices are up, gas prices are up, housing prices are up, and 40% of the country is fully cut off from any kind of news or information source that isn't conservative propaganda.

Our democracy is fully controlled by people that make their voting decisions on factors like "Who looks like they'd be nicer to horses?".

The GOP has been running the same playbook for fifty plus years and beating Democrats with it. At some point, it's on Democratic leadership and the attendant consultant class for not coming up with a better strategy to beat these guys.

I'm looking forward to seeing Senator Shrek take the floor of the Senate in a suit and tie.

I can't speak for others, but from an early age I was placed in gifted/talented classes. That carried over into middle school, high school, and college. I don't think I've ever taken an IQ test, but I feel like I can safely say I'm of above average intelligence but probably not an actual genius.

Now, if I were constantly being held back, in remedial classes, etc. I would probably be an indication of either a learning disability or lower than average intelligence.

Ultimately, IQ is just one measure of intelligence. It's what you do with what you've got that matters.

In reference to my post yesterday, I went to middle school, high school, and college with the actress that plays Madisynn on She-Hulk.

Seeing the internet collectively lose their minds over her has been... entertaining, to say the least.

I'm having a very weird day.

I turned on She-Hulk while eating lunch and was nearly immediately presented with the image a woman I slow danced with at my Bar Mitzvah in 7th Grade.

After a quick Google search, it turns out that it was, in fact, her.

Then my phone started going off with news the Queen had passed.

So yeah. Weird day.

Take the 1-Line from SeaTac to Westlake. Walk 7 minutes to Biscuit Bitch.

I worked at one for a hot second!

It was, surprisingly, not the worst job I ever had.

That would be the computer repair store run by a pill-popper that chased me out of the store with a gun, who later died of a heart attack so massive it could only be described as "explosive".

When the book review is better than the actual book, you know someone fucked up.

I keep having to mute myself on calls because people think I've decamped for Baghdad circa 2003.
