The Current Situation

Ian Miles Cheong is wrong as usual

Far-right culture warrior Ian Miles Cheong — who looks like my evil, basement-dwelling, sadder incel counterpart from a parallel universe — got this spot-on response on Twitter to his moronic post about double-masking.

It’s very odd how the kooky cons seem to think that masks both can’t protect you from the coronavirus, but will block oxygen, despite the fact that the viruses are much larger than oxygen molecules. Remember, oxygen molecules are made of just two oxygen atoms (it’s right there in the formula: O2!), while viruses are made up of considerably more.

Florida The Current Situation

Warmer weather is coming, which means…

America The Current Situation

The perfect movie scene for the Texas reopening

In what seems to be an attempt to justify the Norwegians’ use of “Texas” as a slang expression for “crazy”, Texas’ governor, Greg Abbott, has lifted the state’s mask mandate and will allow businesses to open their doors at 100% capacity starting March 10th, in spite of health experts’ warnings.

There’s a point in a lot of dystopian science fiction where the interests of business take precedence over the interests of people’s safety, and well, Texas is just about there. Florida’s governor, Ron “DipShantis” DeSantis is likely watching and working on plans to follow suit, based on his recent statements. Welcome to late stage capitalism!

It’s going to get dumber, folks.

By the bye, if you’re wondering where the image above comes from, it’s from this classic scene from the 1979 film Alien:
