never used tiktok or whatever that one was before that pioneered the short videoclip format ... vine? i think it was vine.

never used snapchat either. i feel way too old for this shit.

the best stuff tends to wash up on youtube, like three-year-old used condoms and children's toys on a vast and illimitable beach, in the form of compilations, anyway.

It's like an overload of your brain. 15 second clips of everything. Funny shit, enraging shit, music, dancing, porn. It's like stepping into a black mirror episode. Our primate conscience can't cope with this stuff. You'll have watched 200 clips and wonder where your hour went

Can't imagine the ccp even being happy with this platform. It's social media on steroids. Distracts the workers from productivity

that's the whole point, according to paranoiac american conservatives.

fentanyl in the drug supply and tiktok in the attention economy. it's war by other means!

in DFW's novel, infinite jest, a cell of quebecois separatist terrorists are trying to get hold of a videotape, The Entertainment, which is so all-entertaining and engrossing that it renders the viewers stupefied, mute, dumb, catatonic ...

its very different to duoyin in china. duoyin is UBER censored in china meanwhile in america... there are some censorship that isn't beneficial to the CCP.

Someone in the Brietbart comment section said they downloaded TikTok to see what it is about it and had to uninstall it since it was extremely addicting. Reminds me of the guy on Reddit who posted about trying heroin to see what it is about and then months later is talking about rehab and his destroyed life.

I haven't downloaded TikTok because Reddit already exist. I like reading even if what I am reading is sometimes dumb dumb stuff.

I wonder what will happen to Jay if his kids enter the age where they're videoing tiktok dances and learning about crt at school

by the time his kids reach that age we'll all be identifying as the third gender, 'They', and living in a paradisiacal socialist utopia.

At least one of Jay's kids with experiment with being LGBT when they come of age. Too many stories from their dad about "being with the boys" in Iraq.

Maybe his kids will turn him into an ardent supporter of lhbtqi issues. It would fit his character perfectly to flipflop through personal experience. All he needs is a nudge in the right direction from his children.

Statistically one of his sons will knock up a Spanish or black girl.

Jay: "I would sacrifice you all so blah blah blah"
Also Jay: "You just want society to burn so you can spend one more Christmas with your parents." "Must be loving the pandemic so you can wear tissue boxes on your feet."

Either his kids are going to grow up hopelessly, backwardly conservative, or they're going to pop under the pressure and fully swing to the other side of the political spectrum.

Can we meet them in the middle and settle on "that"?

Fuck knows what kids will be thinking in 10 years time.

probably that we are irrelevant, you triply so. and for good reason.

"It," "that," I wouldn't use to address someone as unless it was specifically by their request, and on an individual basis. Some pretty nasty histories there, totally unnecessary. No reason to select "that" over "they" by default unless out of sheer malice.

In 10 years time, dilbert, you'll literally be of the cane-shaking "get off my lawn" age. If you aren't in politics or involved in some lobby group, your opinion is going to be rather irrelevant.

Having trouble keeping track of all that? Just make it another data point in your contacts list. Some people even provide the information themselves. Problem solved. Not unprecedented anyway. Unisex naming already makes it difficult sometimes to know if someone's male or female by name, without finding out.

Freedom from suffocating, toxic gender roles, etc., should probably be considered a good thing for mental health at large.

dilbert still adverts regularly to toxic notions of masculinity. you know, priapic, highly macho, all-star heteronormative dilbert over there. guy is literally caged in his own political posturing and silly social attitudes. a self-castrated auto-cuck.

More on waste in development:



Of course I have to be cognizant of a pre-built computer going 20W over regulation or whatever, while previously-linked Billionaires' Row exists, and commercial towers saturate themselves in light all night long after hours.

Also, light pollution:

Eventually everything on both coast will be underwater. This is why we should just give up.
