An option that existed before Peloton, for average readers like me who cannot afford it: I got a used bike for $300, and a used bicycle trainer that costs around $1oo. Read more

On the other hand, $2500 will buy you a ridiculously nice actual, functional bicycle.

Haha I didn’t mean to imply that these are normal work skills. Just that most influencers literally have no discernible reason that people watch their videos aside from their looks. At least a few show videos of them doing things that are vaguely interesting to watch!

When going to the gym and having a shapely ass is your only life skill you take photos of it. Brands give you money to drape said ass in their products. This is because Robocop was a warning we didn’t listen to.

An influencer is someone who gathers a large number of followers on social media and then monetizes that by posting products/ads. The most successful influencers also make money from attending/speaking at events. People become influencers for a number of reasons—a few actually have skills, like rollerskating or rock Read more

the financial investments angle just makes me laugh and laugh because (1) even if he turned us all into millionaires at the expense of every other shitty thing he has inflicted on the country and the planet, I’d still say “no thanks” because I have kids that will have to deal with the ramifications of his bullshit in Read more

yes it is depressing. Another reason I look forward to the election (apart from voting President Fucking J. Moron out of office) is that it’s really the truest way to see who truly has “drunk the Koolaid” and is beyond saving, versus who is just too embarrassed to admit they fucked up thinking this moron would help Read more

Hell, I’m a Midwesterner, like half of all recipes I know call for the inclusion of a can of Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom, regardless of what’s being made. I typically keep several cans on hand for one single chicken and rice dish with carrots and mushrooms which I frequently make (hail Instant Pot, lord and Read more

I’ve posted elsewhere here that I’m in grad school for my MPH and currently taking a class on public health law. My professor noted in a lecture that the public backlash against quarantine is upending centuries of legal thought and decades of academic instructions, since quarantine has always been looked at as almost Read more

I’m not much of a nap person, unless one of my dogs lets me curl up next to her on the, and then I can float in near sleep super easily somehow. So that’s nice, unless it’s like this morning where I’m sleepy but having to work and she’s napping on the couch. Lucky dog. Read more

I feel like in an industry that deals with art, the babying of folks like Singer is probably even more prevelant than usual. We have so many tropes in art communities for bad-behaving people. We excuse it by calling them “tortured geniuses” or simply “difficult” and shit like that, when they are just abusive assholes Read more
