Who knows what's what anymore, but this is concerning if true. Powering through it doesn't look like a smart option...

Gen Z and Millennials: Tell Us if You Plan to Vote and Why

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/24/reader-center/gen-z-millennials-vote-callout.html

I recently had a conversation with a friend who told me he didn't want to vote in this election and since I've been curious about this point of view for a while, I engaged him. It turns out his reasoning is that he's a fucking incel who refused to vote for Kamala Harris because feminism is taking over the country. Also because it's too much trouble to fill out a form and mail it in.

Im not an optimistic person but even I don't think this is a representative view of every young person who doesn't vote. Gotta ask more people...

Fucking vote you morons. If you have a problem with leadership, or a problem with the way life is in the country, a problem with taxes, or student loans, or medical bills and tuition or student debt, FUCKING VOTE.

Earth Appears to Be Travelling Through The Debris of Ancient Supernovae

This is some cool story about inferring a supernova through evidence of the Iron-60 isotope, which has such a relatively short half life it can only have come from a nearby exploding star. Space fucking rules.

Joe Rogan Experience #1518: David Choe

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7T6__UbhBI

I love David Choe. He's a fucking crazy artist from LA who got famous for being rich off of Facebook stock. He used to have a podcast called DVDASA and disappeared from the internet like 5 years ago. This podcast is a beastly 4 hour episode. They laughed, they cried, they talked about a ton of shit. It's fucking great.

Watch Engineers Take Their 60-Foot-Tall Gundam for a Walk

They're not just statues anymore?!? Is this legal??

It feels Zeon will come in and steal the Gundam at any minute. I wonder which lucky teenage boy will have to become an impromptu pilot.
