I WISH I HAD LEARNED THIS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO OMG
@GammaGuts @ChuckWendig Tangentially, the most important lesson I ever learned from drag queens:

OxyContin’s false marketing as a 12-hour drug caused high/withdrawal cycles that created addiction. They didn’t want to admit it was an 8-hour drug and insisted patients should just take higher and higher doses. https://www.latimes.com/projects/oxycontin-part1/
About time justice was done.

Wait why does Thor have pips on his costume like he’s a goddamn domino
