Me: [Mixes a stiff drink]
Wife: You know it's only Wednesday.
Me: Everybody's a critic.
Wife: Huh?
Me: You're on me about this after being on me about the coffee.
Wife: The coffee?
Me: [realizes I had the coffee conversation entirely in my own head]. Uhh, nothing. I love you.

I'm really pissed @DestinyTheGame Reddit has never given me stock tips, just Xur locations.

Mets fans worried about Steve Cohen's $GME exposure...

My kid DEFINITELY needs this. He's one of those

Teacher: And that's why Martin Luther
My Kid: IT'S 10:46 AND THIS CLASS WAS SUPPOSED TO END AT 10:45!!"

I'm listening in for tips on what I should be telling him to help. :)

My 8yo's remote school lesson today is, literally, "how to read the room."

I love it. LOVE IT. I will back up this lesson with home learning later this week. :)

Quoted @therecount

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refuses to comment on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) conspiracy-laden and violent social media activity:

“I’m not gonna speak further about her in this briefing room.”

Related: My 8yo suggested that we stop calling Trump "The Mean President" in our house, because he is no longer president. He suggested instead "He who must not be named."

It works.

No players on the 2021 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot reached the necessary 75 percent for induction.

Also we should kill the filibuster. :)

Legal writers: Here's all the ways @ewarren would have stopped this Gamestop BS.
Finance Writers: Boo! Stop talking about the she-witch.
Republicans: Biased Socialist Writer Alert!
Dems: SHE LOST, stop trying to make fetch happen!
Progressives: Bernie would have won.

(sorry, the *backstory* here is that finance writers, as a rule, get paid WAY MORE than legal writers. There's tons more of them, entire publications and television networks devoted to their craft. Legal writers just cover, you know, AN ENTIRE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT. No biggie.)

Legal writers: Which attack on the American system of justice and fairness should I write about today?
Finance writers: GAMESTOP
Legal writers: wut?
Finance writers: GAMESTOP. MARKET MANIPULATION. GET YO LEARN ON!
Everybody: [clickity click click]
Legal writers: fucking shoot me.

My wife just translated @matt_levine's "market boredom" theory of Signal (and linked it to Gamestop) in words that I can understand (sometime I can't understand Matt in the original Matt), and now I want them to collaborate on a whole television series around this topic.

Andy Slavitt: "We are not counting on things that are not in existence today."

THANK YOU. JESUS CHRIST.

Cause beyond the lack of science in the previous administration, it was the MAGICAL FREAKING THINKING that has gotten so many people killed.
