Chronicling my mission to rediscover reality. Think of this my live journal for my fool’s journey through the cosmos of available information.
Throughout the week I’ll add the videos I watch, links to news stories, the book(s) I’m currently reading, and anything else I may encounter that seems useful.
Monday February 2
Book of the week
In the spirit of kicking back and enjoying the clown show!
They are now paying for studies to bolster their bullshit narrative. Anyone with eyes remains unconvinced.
Would love to hear a conservative’s take on this story, but alas they have all magically disappeared from Twitter. https://t.co/uAsTZztxIs

Tuesday February 3
Elon joined Clubhouse.
When Elon announced he would be speaking on Clubhouse, the app went into uber fanboy mode. It surpased Beatles on Sullivan levels. Rooms popped up for people to talk about what Elon may or may not talk about. One of those rooms started hours before Elon spoke, and continued on for at least 12 hours after his appearance. I can appreciate that people like Elon, he’s making cool stuff and has given the finger to big government, but the hero worship is out of control.
The CEO of Robinhood, Vlad Whatshisface joined the room where Elon was speaking. Vlad was brought up to the stage to answer Elon’s questions. Here’s the audio of that exchange.
What I awoke to this morning! Hooray for a snow day!
Is the $GME line gonna hold?
HOLD THE LINE. Don’t give up hope. The only things that stand in our way are: every hedge fund, every institutional bank, the CIA, our government, the entire media except Barstool Sports, and most of the tech world.
