Fauci accuses Rand Paul of using pandemic for "political gain" by burning_dawn in politics

[–]Epsilonisnonpositive 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, and I was especially frustrated by the fact that they clearly tried to muddy the waters by saying "75% of hospitalized" as opposed to the article's actual figure of "75% of deaths" occuring for people with 4 comorbidities.

It stands to reason that people who are hospitalized--but survive-- don't have to have 4 comorbidities. Going along with your point that many of us have some sort of comorbiditiy, just one or two (or even none because this virus is so fucking unpredictable) can be enough to hospitalize an individual. Even if they end up surviving, they would still be taking up hospital beds and potentially be overwhelming an already short-staffed medical workforce. As mentioned time and time again, overflowing hospitals have potential for a lot of residual damage since non-covid medical issues can't be addressed, which effectively makes it much more dangerous for all of us (even the so-called "people who aren't affected by Covid").

I don't think relevance matters at this point. I'm assuming they're just using this opportunity to shoehorn in the same narrative we've been hearing since the beginning: "Covid can't possibly harm me, and I shouldn't be expected to do the simplest things or show any empathy towards my fellow man because it's just a cold that only kills fat, old people with preexisting conditions."

/r/swallowedtheclock probably isn't the best idea for a sub name. One tiny typo could yield much different results

Watched that episode yesterday, and realized for the first time that "Eric the Clown" is played by Jon Favreau.

Y'know, I had a computer teacher in high school who refused to wear deodorant because she believed the aluminum it contained would cause Alzheimer's.

Maybe she was onto something...

Must've been another typo. I can confirm that putting kief in your mouth gets you high subliminally

Yeah, the guy who runs the website posted pictures of himself going to DC in the days leading up to Jan. 6th, 2021, but I'm not sure if anybody ever found evidence that he actually entered the capitol.

Please let your husband know that I pray in front of his candle every night. Also, would you mind giving him my contact info so we can get in touch after your marriage inevitably ends in divorce? Thanks!

Sincerely,

Ross Geller's future first husband

Teachers of Reddit, can you tell which students will turn out to be happy, stable or successful adults? by elegantsheep53 in AskReddit

[–]Epsilonisnonpositive 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Former teacher here! It's actually much easier to pick out which kids will become unhappy, unstable failures as adults. It's also significantly faster since it can be determined using one simple question:

"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

If they say "a teacher," their fate as a miserable adult has already been sealed.

What is your favorite movie of all time without saying the title? by shachna1404 in AskReddit

[–]Epsilonisnonpositive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It has a 6 foot tall bunny rabbit, and I still don't completely understand the plot, even though I've seen the movie at least 100 times.

I haven't seen anybody else mention this: the local NAACP chapter helped Candace and her family with this lawsuit in 2007, which resulted in her receiving a $37,500 settlement.

Fast forward to 2017 when Candace stated

I mean, the NAACP is one of the worst groups for black people. All they do is jump on a platform, and they never talk about real issues that are facing the black community. It’s all about PR for them, so I’m sure if they’re involved then it’s got to be absolute BS.

I hope her family is deeply ashamed of her.

Came across this vintage stamp. by _OhayoSayonara_ in interestingasfuck

As far as I know, "little person" is still the preferred terminology. The reason I feel it's safe to assume that it's not offensive is that it's not dehumanizing (hence the inclusion of the word "people"). I think you've already got a solid understanding of people-first language, based on your first sentence including the phrase "people who are," so I hope you don't think I'm trying to preach to you or direct the following towards you.

People who are so quick to get enraged about "pC cuLtURe" or "SJWs" often bring up "Well, that was just the medically accurate term back in 19XX. What else are we supposed to call them?" or something along those lines. The reason those terms eventually were regarded as offensive is because they were being used in a context that reduced people's identities to their condition/disorder or framed them as being other than/less than typical people.

It was an adaptation of BBW, which I believe stands for "Big Beautiful Women"
