Bet you that adds to the arrival time though.

I'm pretty sure it's from Our Man Bashir.

The mark of a successful vampire is that violence is a hobby, not an obligation.

When it comes to company, Bashir accepts no substitutes for his favorite tailor.

"Everyone knows Romulan children's bodies look best in a bath of blood, and before you say that sounds weird I mean alive or dead!"

Vampires? They’ve got a ton of guards

Oddly enough, I've been thinking today of how to make that exact meme.

I'm glad they included lyrics, because it clears up some tricky verses.

As much as the "hurt with one hand, help with the other" approach bothers me, I really hope this enables sufficient aid to safely reach the civilians who so desperately need it.

"You say it was a 12-foot bear with a screaming, toothed sword? How much of what are you drinking on your shift?"

I know it's a silly picture, that chainsaws don't exist in most IP's, and most shapeshifters couldn't use them regardless. But it's the first thing I thought of when I saw the template.

Hell, after years of living in the nightlife of major cities I know some maniacs who would probably do it for free.

I'd say it's sometimes ok, sometimes necessary for brevity, and sometimes accurate. Accurate = "All people need oxygen, water, and calories to survive." Brevity = "Generally speaking, people enjoy good food and good company so those situations work well for forming relationships."

Consequences of generalizations have a lot to do with how tolerable they are. If I say, "most people like pizza" there's not much harm if several million people don't. If I say, "all or most people of this gender/ethnicity/religion/whatever have X problem" that's a lot more problematic because it can easily lead to a consequence of harmful prejudice. When it comes to matters of ethics, beliefs, accusations etc. it becomes very important to handle cases individually as much as humanly possible.

I hope reality turns out to be an incredibly immersive sequel to Idiocracy or something similar that I can wake up from and criticize for being dumb, if occasionally amusing. It's the only way I can make peace with things like this story.

In case anyone wants to know specifically why this is crazy: here's a NASA article about magnetic pole shifts/reversals. The short version is:

  • Magnetic North Pole was identified about 200 years ago and since then it's constantly been drifting so "Pole Shifts" are a constant reality.
  • Complete reversals (where N and S swap) happen every 300,000 years or so on average (varying a lot). The last reversal was actually 780,000 years ago, so I'm not sure what societal collapse this guy knows about from WAY into pre-history.
  • The Earth's magnetic field has declined in strength in the last 200 years by about 9%, but it's still twice as intense as it's million-year average and not going anywhere anytime soon.

This showed up in my Lemmy feed just above a story from the BBC about how Biden is planning to send 1 billion in arms to Israel. I felt these two stories next to each other was a fitting symbol of how wrong things are going.
