The fact that you think this is at all noteworthy or interesting means you're part of the problem.

There's no scenario where a pre-announcement accomplishes anything useful. If he doesn't have the goods then he's on record as being full of hot air. If he does have the goods then jumping the gun does nothing except maybe invite pre-release suicide activity.

Whenever I get called a phobe I just say "I don't fear you, I pity you." For some reason they never respond well to that but oh well.

The truly funny part of all this is how many people are very seriously looking for meaning in what is obviously just someone having a giggle.

That's like saying it's a coincidence that someone made a pie and called it "pie". It's not a "coincidence". It's literally what the word means.

Yes, it was probably named by an atheist chemist who was having a bit of a giggle. If the point you're making is that there are irreverent atheists in the world, I don't think that comes as a surprise to anyone. If you're hinting at some more nefarious scheme, you're going to need more of a story than just "hey look, they said lucifer!"

Yep. Donate to your regional blood organization if there is one, or directly to a local hospital if not.

You need to work on your reading comprehension. Covid tested our social responsibility does not at all mean Covid was planned and implemented to test social responsibility.

Yes, this article is bullshit, but criticize it for what it actually says.

clearly related words can't be related because "scholars"

Ah, I see you've decided that "cat" and "cart" mean the same thing, and all the people who say otherwise are just dumb.

Since you're not interested in facts that disagree with your feelings, there's no point to continuing this conversation. I hope you have a great day!

"Seventh" and "Sabbath" come from completely different etymological roots.

"Sabbath" comes from the Hebrew word for "to rest". Shabath literally means "he rested".

"Seventh" comes directly from the original proto-indo-european root septm meaning seven.

Note that Hebrew is not an indo-european language at all; it's a member of the afro-asiatic language family instead. "Shabath" and "septm" have literally no connection to each other; it's mere coincidence that they happen to have similar soundshapes.

So if you're saying that lots of languages use words meaning "seventh" for Saturday, that's proof that they're not using "sabbath"!

The link goes to 20 hours of playlist. If you want to link to the specific point where this claim is argued, I'll take a look.

"most languages on Earth" are not Indo-European and use a completely different day naming scheme, if they have one at all. This is an obviously ridiculous claim.

This opinion is only binding in the 5th circuit (TX, MS, LA). Other jurisdictions can take the ruling as informative but are not obliged to follow it. However, because this deals with the activity of global social media companies, it's likely to effectively become the de facto standard because Twitter et al. do not want to keep getting sued by Texans and Cajuns.

It only truly becomes national policy if it's appealed to the Supreme Court and they uphold it.

It's cleverly concealed, but if you study the pic very closely you can find a big "CONNECTED" indicator located under the SSID name.

Ah yes, he just randomly found that SSID which requires a private key (lock symbol) and then successfully connected to it.

We must never get into the habit of defining what a good citizen or human is

We can absolutely define what a good citizen or human is- or at least, what a bad one is.

Of course we can't define those things too narrowly. We have to leave room for individual uniqueness. That doesn't mean we can't draw lines, we just have to draw the right ones.

And even then, just drawing the lines doesn't provide guidance for people who are actively looking for specific help and suggestions. We can give people room to be good people in their own personal ways while also offering useful advice for people who are specifically asking for it.

"Ways to be a non-conformist" absolutely does not mean "the only ways to be a non-conformist". OP is not at all gatekeeping, it's suggesting, and asking for more suggestions.

Be an active member of an offline community built around shared values - a church, volunteer organization, fraternal order, gun club, etc. Have a network of people who live close enough to each other to provide meaningful support in a real emergency or disruption.

How many of those 30% are women under 25 though? Being right is cold comfort if there's no breeding stock.
