Productivity and Time management

I had what I think was a pretty profound revelation the other day pertaining to “productivity” and “time management”, and in particular how we set ourselves up for success when there are multiple things we care about that require some degree of dedication/time investment. Thread: OK, so let me contextualize the point I want to […]

When Americans are left to die b/c they can’t afford things like insulin, who or what is that in service to?

When Americans are left to die b/c they can’t afford things like insulin, who or what is that in service to? I need every politician arguing against universal care to answer that. Why are people denied healthcare here & not in other developed nations? How is allowing people to die b/c they can’t afford overpriced […]

What will Republicans run on in 2020?

Serious question: what will Republicans run on in 2020? We have a trillion dollar deficit. Trump is ending affordable care w/no replacement. Our world standing has fallen. The tax scam hurt most Americans. Kentucky and Louisiana are just the beginning. The Trump brand is toxic! The only “accomplishment” legislatively was the tax scam. Trump and […]

What would you do if your anxiety didn’t exist?

Found a question I posed to my self in an old notebook: What would you do if your anxiety didn’t exist? I have had a big uptick in anxiety in the past month. No clear reason, no single trigger in life, just an uptick in general anxiety and panic attacks. Received a script that exacerbated […]

Don’t scapegoat mental health rhetoric and terminology when you’re being called out challenge!

Don’t scapegoat mental health rhetoric and terminology when you’re being called out challenge That some of you are so allergic to accountability that you’d even think it is okay to bring up that call outs/call ins make you anxious/trigger your anxiety OR that someone pointing out your bad behavior makes you suicidal or triggers your […]

The argument that malicious, even non-human speech on the web…

The argument that malicious, even non-human speech on the web—like racist trolls who are backed by megadonors, and therefore the bots and sponsored posts that amplify their racism—is protected speech? That always had a very direct analogy to me: Citizen’s United. The idea that paid-for bot networks pushing out racist garbage to game Twitter’s Trending section […]

Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage!

Cherokee Nation to Warren: Warren’s DNA test is “wrong” & “dishonors legitimate tribal governments and citizens whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage” My jaw is on the floor at this rebuke. If Warren continues this charade of racial […]

Crunch is yet another barrier for folks with disabilities in working and contributing to games!

Gamedev circles are having that important discussion about the negative aspects of crunch again, so I’d like to add this: Crunch is yet another barrier for folks with disabilities in working and contributing to games. It’s detrimental to start with but impossible for others. Crunch is a reason I’ve been afraid of trying to contribute […]

Suicide and suicidal feelings are very common among young anorexics!

It’s almost like telling people that unless they do exactly as activists say children will kill themselves is a profoundly unhelpful, unprofessional and untrue tactic. Truly, not since Dead Poets Society (let your child be an actor! OR THEY WILL KILL THEMSELVES) has the horrific threat of adolescent suicide been lobbed about so casually. It […]

As far as I am concerned, today’s feminism is not feminism!

DC McAllister‏; I want to hear from women who don’t conform to feminist groupthink. Why aren’t you on the feminist bandwagon? Democrats need to hear our voices as we expose the real traitors of femininity! The faux War on Women has morphed into a real War between Women. Independent women who reject feminist groupthink are rising […]

How cognitive biases may be negatively impacting your practices!

Connecting Social Psychology & Astrology Thread: how cognitive biases may be negatively impacting your practices. First, I do want to make it clear that this thread isn’t being made to make anyone feel guilty for having cognitive biases. Cognitive biases are primarily subconscious/unintentional tendencies. This thread is here for self-reflection because anyone can benefit from […]

A jet engine is a jet engine; no one will convince me otherwise!

“A jet engine is a jet engine; no one will convince me otherwise. I’ve been on more airplanes than anybody in the United States, I know these things, ok?” Looks like we found who’s going to be the McNamara of the second decade of the 21st Century. https://t.co/25EeDVqvlV There is so much wrong in the statements […]
