Hmmmm.. I wonder what’s different about that fourth couple.
“Nice and close, grab her leg, perfect! Next!
Yeah, rub your arse on his thigh, lean back into him. Great, next.
Right…ride him like a sexy little pony. Dry hump that leg! Yes! Next!
Ok, I’m gonna need clear fucking daylight between you two. Barely notice each other. Cool.”
I'm curious, maybe I'm missing some news somewhere, but I don't know that Amazon has been setting up to make company towns anywhere. What'd I miss?
So we all know that Amazon wants to make company cities.
And the news keeps treating this as a good idea. Or at least not a horrifying one.
For that reason I’m providing you with a history lesson on the Coal Wars—a tale of a company town.
God damn, this is a harrowing read about domestic abuse, college and NFL football, and the many ways systems protect powerful men from the consequences of their abuse.
I wonder how many more settlements like this are going to come down before cities start requiring them to come from police union pension funds?
The city of Philadelphia will pay $2,000,000 to a Black woman who was pulled from a car, beaten by officers and had her toddler used for social media fodder by the police union, officials say. https://nbcnews.to/2Z24oXH
This thread is a novel and it’s really intense. It definitely leaves a bad taste in my mouth re: Pathfinder
Welp, Paizo just fired their two most senior customer service people (one a woman, one a POC) for apparently being too willing to push back on abusive management.

Every so often this thread comes to mind again. It's pure gold(en showers).

"Hey man, is this the line?"
"How long you been here?"
"Only been here a few minutes, but a friend said the line moves pretty quick and he was done in about 15"
I know my employer is not without controversy, but this... I like this.
"The night they got the bikes back, they had little reason to believe justice would be served. It was their own detective work that had succeeded when the system failed them."
The cops come off as systematically indifferent to delivery bikers here. Shocking.
2020 and 2021 have been the year of the delivery worker in every way except safety and stability. This is a long read about NYC's gig economy workers' safety and organization. It's worth the time it'll take you to read.
All of this. E-bikes really do take this hilly city and flatten it.
I can't wait until we have more infrastructure built from the ground up for them.
Of course she's a partisan hack. More so even than Brett "Beer Me" Kavanaugh is. She's an ostentatiously anti-choice pro-theocracy judge, and about as good for the country as COVID-19.
I make chunks of the internet, and like some stuff. Rest assured I'm not famous in any meaningful way.
