This weekend has basically been all about watchingsing Cabaret over and over again. It’s one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen especially the ending
*travels back to 2014*
Them: What’s the future like? Do we have flying cars?
Me: Well, our child internment camps now have quotes from Art of the Deal.
Them: The Donald Trump book? Why?
Me: You’re gonna want to sit down.
Them: Wait, child internment camps? https://t.co/Y7i5FMWOVU
Looks like Canada might be in the market for a *new* closest trading partner pretty soon. I’d say we’re at the suddenly doing a lot of yoga, not shopping for America’s mother’s birthday, no longer pretending to like Radiohead stage of the relationship.
“Toronto” is the Algonquin word for construction
brb changing my name to Netflib
This is the relatively gentle way that #Oslo is dealing with security around buildings with sensitive uses, in light of past terrorist attacks. Solid, concrete flower boxes and benches. Not bad, I say. https://t.co/0knf9ztyD5
That’s it. I’m moving to Canada.
The riding of Kiiwetinoong, in Ontario’s northwest, is 294,083 square kilometers. That riding, represented by one person, is literally larger than Nevada.
Almost all old problems in the world are in stable state in relationship to their current solution attempts. They won’t be fixed by pushing the same solutions harder—often times that just holds them more tightly together. In that sense, current solutions are part of the problem.

The Outsider (Stephen King, 2018)

Seems the original Marshmallow Test measured the wrong cause: Differing experiences with affluence & scarcity, not a child’s willpower, is the more realistic signal of future success
These national spelling bee kids were air TYPING the words out instead of air writing them 🤦🏼♀️ What is this world?
It was fun watching Jennifer Lawrence’s slow descent into madness via claustrophobic close-up as mayhem steadily increases all around her. I’m not sure if it’s about loss of control, the sacrificial role of muses, or something entirely different, but I didn’t really care in the end because it felt very fresh.
Now that we’re all on twitter because of this game, I am making a public service announcement: PLEASE STOP SHARING THAT STORY ABOUT 1500 KIDS MISSING. The outrage I’ve seen is a result of a total misinterpretation and could SERIOUSLY threaten the children you want to save.
Three big replications out today of:
* Srull & Wyer: Priming traits affects judgments
* Mazar et al.: Moral reminders reduce cheating
* Shoda et al: “Marshmallow task” predicts later achievement
1 & 2 find no meaningful effect, 3 a diminished one that disappears with controls

Interesting counterargument to Google requiring HTTPS on all websites: many historic sites won’t do it, which effectively amounts to a “book burning”:
I have seen a lot of horror movies so my fav person is the ghost dead kid on the far right whose living twin on the left is as yet unaware of his spectral presence. https://t.co/VBJmLED7Lr
