Just booked a spring break trip with the family to Florida. F*** COVID.

"The alliance of leftists and woke capitalists hopes to regulate the innermost thoughts of every American, from school age to retirement. And they’ve trained enforcers of the woke orthodoxy to monitor dissent or misbehavior. A “Karen” who cuts the wrong person off in traffic gets followed home on a livestream and shamed into crying for mercy as her license plate is broadcast to an online horde eager to hound her out of a job."

I've started a learning to program Python book. TIL that in Python, 2+2 =4, whereas 0.1+0.2 = 0.30000000000000004. Maybe the critical race theorists have a point.

Take a moment to absorb the collective magnitude of these two pictures ...

Just watching V for Vendetta for the first time. How far are we away from this at this point?

MOB INVESTORS: GameSpot is up 174% in January, mostly driven by young left-wing lunatics using Robin Hood, and when a stock analyst company said it was overvalued, an ANGRY MOB went to the guy's private HOME and threatened him!
So now the markets really are driven by a lunatic left-wing mob. Antifa is now determining stock prices, essentially:

"I advise that this place be shut up at once."

"But everybody's having such a good time?"

"Yes, much too good a time. The place is to be closed."

"But I have no excuse to close it."

"Find one."

Sound familiar?
