Pope Francis is gearing up for the first millennial saint, a web developer known as 'God's influencer'
  • The painting of Carlo is hilarious. I imagine it's solemn ceremony and the painting is Carlo wearing normal clothes.

    It's going to be real disorienting looking at the portraits of Saints. It's going to start from ancient clothing to formal more contemporary clothing to a saint were a bright red jacket with a backpack on.

  • The future of cars
  • If my options are crash and burn in an:

    • An ordinary car, or
    • A Telsa, or
    • Wacky Race car

    I am going to take the Wacky Race car. At least, there's going to be a good story out of my death.

  • job rule
  • This somewhat happened to me. I applied to teach at a college. A bout a year and half later they call me up asking if I was still interested.

    I say yes, get the job. New dean comes and then tells me that they have no positions available for me.

    At Justice Alito’s House, a ‘Stop the Steal’ Symbol on Display
  • The House of Representatives is only needed if there is a law on the books that says there can only be 9 Justices on the Supreme Court.

    If there is no law, then yeah. Only need the Senate to change the amount of justices.

    I would love it if there was a law about it as it would make it slightly harder for bad faith actors to expand the Court on the grounds of "The other side got to do it, so we get to do it too!" Aka Republicans.

  • X now treats the term cisgender as a slur
  • Pink and blue only became gender coded because corporations wanted to sell more merchandise.

    “In America by the 1890s and the early 20th century, manufacturers attempted to sell more children’s and infants’ clothes by color-coding them,” she said. Some manufacturers branded pink for boys and blue for girls, and vice versa.

    Until then, everyone wore blue and pink.

    “If you look back, little boys in the 18th century wore blue and pink, and grown-up men wore blue and pink, and ladies and little girls wore blue and pink,” Steele said.

    The complicated gender history of pink

    Purple is a wicked color because it's the color of royalty.

    Tyrian Purple was associated with the rank of royalty in the ancient civilisations of Rome, Japan, Persia, Egypt and Constantinople, dating back as far as the 16th century BC. But how did it come to be the stamp of everything imperial? For a start, purple was first sourced in Phoenicia (the name translates as ‘purple land’), an ancient city located in modern-day Lebanon. Producing purple dye was a laborious process – and was subsequently expensive – though the method of extracting it was less glamorous. The dye stemmed from the foul-smelling mucous gland of a marine mollusk. As a result, the term purple owes itself to the Latin word for a purple shellfish, ‘purpura’. A time-consuming process saw these sea snails dried and boiled to make Tyrian dye – many of the creatures were needed to dye even a small segment of fabric, but the benefits meant that the intensity of the colour was long-lasting and not prone to fade.

    Purple: an enchanting pigment reserved for royals and rulers

  • Skill
  • You can be a trained retail worker in a few hours in most cases. Same with many farming jobs. Same with working the line at fast food

    Retail workers have to deal with irate customers, develop product knowledge, and how to sell items. Fast food workers need to learn how to work as a team, make the food at a consist quality, and juggle multiple orders at once.

    As for farm workers, if they are working with animals: how to read the animals for their behavior, treat minor injuries of animals, and how to manage animals.

    I will agree that all labor deserve a living wage.

  • How did he know?
  • I don't know about worse. Make it a public spectacle, sell tickets, take bets, and cheer on your favorite blood thirsty politician.

    We can all have popcorn when we watch "FIGHT NIGHT IN CONGRESS!"

    www.americamagazine.org Pope Francis: I don’t bless a ‘homosexual marriage.’ I bless two people who love each other.

    In a recent interview with an Italian magazine, Pope Francis provided more comments on “Fiducia Supplicans,” highlighting the hypocrisy behind those shocked that a priest would bless a gay couple but have no problem with him blessing a crooked businessman.

    Pope Francis: I don’t bless a ‘homosexual marriage.’ I bless two people who love each other.

    > VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- People who act shocked that a priest would bless a gay couple but have no problem with him blessing a crooked businessman are hypocrites, Pope Francis said. > > “The most serious sins are those that are disguised with a more ‘angelic’ appearance. No one is scandalized if I give a blessing to an entrepreneur who perhaps exploits people, which is a very serious sin. Whereas they are scandalized if I give it to a homosexual -- this is hypocrisy,” he told the Italian magazine Credere. > > The interview was scheduled for publication Feb. 8, but Vatican News reported on some of its content the day before when the magazine issued a press release about the interview.

The New York Times wrote in August 2023 that “Mr Trump has never explicitly told Mr Giuliani why he is effectively stiffing him, but the former president has pointed out that he lost the cases related to the election.”
