Well, I laughed.

I can’t help thinking giving people an empty year to fill with social media was a very bad idea.

I mean, everything about the last year has been a very bad idea, but Twitter is a one-way ticket to Crazy Town.

Though 2020 was the year all the dystopian science fiction stories we came true. I’ve read some wild-ass conspiracy theories in the last thirteen months and I believe about 80% of them.

By the way, if you haven’t followed the Twitter slapfight between Neil deGrasse Tyson and Steak-umms on the nature of science you have missed a treat. Steak-umms is the correct side, obviously. Also, someone said the person running that social media account is a son of David Koresh.

The Internet is weird, man.

The Science says the sun revolves around the earth.

The idea that disease is caused by creatures so small they can’t be viewed with the naked eye is preposterous!

Malaria is caused by bad vapors from swampy regions!

Bleeding a patient with blades or leeches is the only way to remove the bad humours from their bodies!

Here’s one Tyson should really like, science has proven that people of the white races are superior to all others!

Everyone knows these things! Learned men have studied these things!

Confess your heresies! DENIERS!

This universe is a hologram.

That it’s a hologram of that fish that hides itself swimming in and out of the butt of a sea cucumber is in the teeny tiny fine print.

I had a Twitter account for over five years and never once posted anything to it, so one day I just shut it down.

Every now and then, I think I can see into the future, and Facebook struck me as Verbal Quicksand. The problem with quicksand is that it’s hard to spot until you step in it. So I’ve never had a Facebook account, which annoys my family but relieves me enormously!

Facebook is now Verbal Diarrhea mixed with occasional entertaining memes, and lots of ads. Instagram’s ads are prettier, and there are more fake accounts.
Reddit is Instagram lite with occasional NSFW… for now. I have a feeling it will go the way of tumblr and ban anything past PG13 eventually.
I waste a lot of time on the intertubes.

NGT obviously made a huge misteak picking a beef with a frozen meat sheet. …sorry, couldn’t resist a cheesy comment I’ll let myself out…

She can’t. She’s gone for her 42nd Covid update shot prior to her yearly Covid vaccination.

Because new normal.
Nothing to see here, move along.

“Where’s Weasel?”, asked Poo.

“Gone.”, said Eeyore. “Badger too.”

“Was it the Po-Po-Police again?” asked Piglet. He hid behind Owl, and peeked out fearfully.

“The Police! The Police! Again! Again!” shouted Christopher Robin, who was a little dizzy from spinning in a circle.

“Quite likely” said Eeyore.

“Don’t be silly!”, said Owl. “It’s much more likely they’re off drunk somewhere.”

Pooh puckered his brow, and thought very, very hard, for a bear of very little brain. “Perhaps both things are true. I don’t see why not.”

Fear not, fellow minions – the mustelids have not been carted off for gross sedition, nor taken by The Rona.

Her Stoatliness will explain her absence, I have no doubt. Once she’s woken up…

As long as there’s free space, and time, and rain and donner und blitzen and a chimney leak that can’t be fixed because of it.

Are either of those guys related to
Dick Herts from Holden?

Imagine if that pompous prick NdGT actually got slapped by Scrapple. That would be brutal.

Also, it has amused me that TYSON has been corrected/slapped by a beef (ostensibly) product.

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
