Anyone drink tea? Have suggestions for a simple recipe?
  • For bagged black tea, I use a kettle to boil water, pour it over the bag in a 15 oz mug, and steep for three minutes. If you don't have a kettle, a microwave works fine (contrary to what snobs say), but be aware that it will be hotter than you'd get from a kettle because it also heats the mug. If the tea is bitter, cut the heat and steep time. If it's not strong enough, adding more tea leaves is ideal, but adding heat or steep time can also help.

    Edit: I don't agitate tea as it is steeping but I imagine it would have a similar effect to increasing steep time.

  • New Minnesota laws in effect July 1.
  • Minnesotans will be paying more for their deliveries thanks to Democrats' new junk delivery fee. Minnesota families are already struggling with inflation

    -- House Minority Leader Lisa Demuth, R-Cold Spring

    What is she so strenuously protesting?

    A 50-cent delivery fee passed last year will now be applied to purchases at or over $100 of clothing or personal property subject to a sales tax.

    I don't know how I'll cope.

  • Apparently controversial, in this day and age
  • Biden is just kind of apologetically supporting them because he’s a weak leader that can’t afford to rock the boat ... If Biden actually wins the election, he may actually end American support

    No, he is ideologically committed to supporting Israel. He has said this multiple times and I see no reason to disbelieve him. I think it's equally likely Trump would stop supporting Israel because of America First/antisemitism, which is to say, so unlikely as to be impossible.

  • Trump Used "Palestinian" as a Slur. Biden and Debate Moderators Didn’t Say a Word.
  • had Democrats been in power from 2016 forward

    They had a 60-seat senate majority in the senate in 2008 and chose not to codify Roe. They twirled their thumbs while Republicans openly plotted to do exactly what they did, for decades. If Democrats had been in power in 2016, Republicans would have done the same thing in 2020, or 2024, or whenever they got power back.

    I'm not saying don't vote Democrat, but electoral politics is not enough.

  • Irrational
  • No, by our current understanding there is no length smaller than a Planck length, and any distance must therefore be divisible by an integer. That is, the length is made up of discrete quanta. Pi, or any other irrational number, is by definition not divisible by an integer, or it would be a ratio, making it rational. This has nothing to do with the accuracy or precision of our measures.

    www.businessinsider.com Substack's Nazi problem isn't about speech — it's about money

    The refusal to remove or demonetize extremist blogs means Substack is likely making money from them. It should stop.

    Substack's Nazi problem isn't about speech — it's about money
    • Substack's founder says it will not remove white supremacist and Nazi blogs from the platform.
    • Some of these blogs have paying subscribers, which means Substack likely profits.
    • The heart of the issue is not the free speech; it's the money.

    www.theatlantic.com Substack Has a Nazi Problem

    The newsletter platform’s lax content moderation creates an opening for white nationalists eager to get their message out.

    Substack Has a Nazi Problem

    > The newsletter-hosting site Substack advertises itself as the last, best hope for civility on the internet—and aspires to a bigger role in politics in 2024. But just beneath the surface, the platform has become a home and propagator of white supremacy and anti-Semitism. Substack has not only been hosting writers who post overtly Nazi rhetoric on the platform; it profits from many of them.

    portside.org Half the Police Force Quit. Crime Dropped.

    In a staggering report last month, the Department of Justice documented pervasive abuse, illegal use of force, racial bias and systemic dysfunction in the Minneapolis Police Department. City police officers engaged in brutality or made racist comments, even as a department investigator rode along in...
