I think this is very cool! Even if he eventually gives up on the mushrooms or even growing things altogether, he’s learning how to go from “this is a cool idea” to actually doing a project. Which is a perfect skill for a 9 year old!

I’m assuming you mean because people are contagious before they show symptoms, which is true. But temp checks at least have the benefit of identifying and protecting from people known to be sick. And if those people are otherwise asymptomatic, and thus not checking their temperature, it might be their first clue as Read more

I had something very similar earlier this year, right around the start of COVID actually. My pain ended up being in my teeth more than my tongue but otherwise it sounds extremely similar. I also had a wicked tonsil stone with mine, and eventually developed sinus pain. I didn’t get a hard diagnosis since my strep test Read more

That’s how it worked in New Leaf, yeah. But you can tell whether you’d be disturbing a shark, since you can see their fins. So you can avoid that.

This dress is so lovely!! I think a tulle strap will look great. It actually doesn’t scream lace to me, though of course it is, so I wouldn’t worry about the straps not matching. The lace is fairly... gauzy?? .... if that makes sense, which I think will pair really well with the tulle.

Basically, she’s arguing that in order to acknowledge gender-based discrimination, we have to acknowledge sex. Which is very stupid because part of acknowledging gender-based discrimination is acknowledging that gender roles are socially constructed, i.e. not inherently based on sex.

Well obviously there are witnesses because that’s how people know it’s happening, and yet, where is justice?

You are being unclear on the division between protestors and rioters. You, in your original post, used the two interchangeably. Are people coming expressly to protest in your city? Or are they coming expressly to loot and riot in your city? Have you seen any actual violence in your city that wasn’t incited by police?

I’ve had something like that happen twice (both times when dealing with a new delivery method) and it’s the worst. It’s scary because it’s just scary but also because people don’t acknowledge that can happen with weed. I’m so sorry it happened to you!! Please make yourself eat something, even if you’re not hungry, and Read more

What you’re talking about is different from “open adoption” though, right? I thought open adoption was some form of contact or relationship with birth parents, not simply knowledge of who they are and the fact that child was adopted. A relationship is obviously very complex and works differently for everyone, but Read more

I think there are two streams of criticism about Marie Kondo. One is legitimate, which is that the assumption that if you get rid of something and then need it later, you can always buy another is not the case for many people. The other stream though is about fundamentally misunderstanding her approach and shoving it Read more

Jonny Sun is such a delightful treasure, he’s one of the only things I miss since getting off Twitter.

I am currently only reading or watching things that I’ve either read before or have a familiar structure - comfort food for the brain. Lots of lightly feminist romance novels. I just finished Red, White and Royal Blue earlier this week and LOVED IT, just so delightful. For what’s next, I’m trying to choose between a Read more

My frustration is in the lack of any public policy expertise in the response. All of our information is either coming from the CDC, which no one trusts anymore, or WHO/academics/epidemiologists, who are brilliant but not policy experts. In this situation, like in any situation, there’s gotta be a balance between the Read more

You know, I kinda like the other billionaire. I mean, not that he should be president and he DEFINITELY should not be running for president and it’s annoying that he is. But if he weren’t, he’d just be a guy who I thought was doing his best to do the most good with his resources.
