@polotek@twitter.com Capitalism can only pay for things that have value by virtue of keeping them away from the people who need them.

Murderfloof.

What doesn’t come across in these photos is just how big he is. He’s a large cat but he is built like a fucking pitbull and is MADE OF MUSCLE with giant murderfloof paws.

Like. We have a colony full of rescue cats but Mr. Snow is a BEAST and seeing him get that much air RULES

No, I'm not going to rate my transaction. I'm such a rebel. πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ€

This foreword is possibly the best I've read yet -- part mini-memoir, part reflection on the Parable of the Sower. So relatable and human and just πŸ’—πŸ˜». Read it.

(Small spoilers of Parable of the Sower included, but I'm sure you've read that book already, so no big deal.)

Grand Central is reissuing Octavia Butler's PARABLE OF THE SOWER soon, and I was honored to provide a foreward, which you can read here. (Uh, spoilers tho, if you haven't read the books. Why haven't you? Go read them.) ew.com/books/2019/02/25/parabl

I just got an email from someone who works in "Talent Attraction", and I think that's the best name for recruiting I've seen yet. 😻

And how does a "world-class" engineer compare to a "quality" one?

What is a "world-class engineer"? Is that a thing? How do you tell who is "world-class"? What do you really mean by that?

Are these heartless asshats the same ones that refuse to adopt black cats because they are black? I just can't.

I just learned that there is a nascent pets anti-vaxxer movement and I'm logging off this world indefinitely. πŸ™€

Every day, in every office, women and minorities handle being talked over/talked down with much more grace and power than this supposedly-professional dude does when he is rightly called out.

Boggles my mind.

What's amazing to me is how lacking of basic competence seemingly "important" or "elite" folks turn out to be once you scratch the surface.

Carson starts stuttering and throwing incoherent one-word insults at Bregman as soon as the conversation takes an unexpected turn.

Watch Fox News host Tucker Carlson call one of his guests a 'tiny brain...moron' during an interview. NowThis has obtained the full segment with historian Rutger Bregman that Fox News is refusing to air. twitter.com/nowthisnews/status

"Software Engineer, Full-Stack Infrastructure" seems like a particularly baffling job role name.
