I ordered my daughter a pizza, something I don't usually do. I got Domino's smallest size with two toppings. I got her cheese sticks and two sauces and tipped the driver 20%. $31.07.
  • For $90 I sure as fuck hope they have the owner strapped to a goddamn milking machine to make the cheese. That or the landlord.

    Restaurant landlords are a special kind of scum. They let restaurants revolve in and out until someone finally makes a splash. Then they raise the rents for the next lease. Every fucking time.

  • So much for that fetish...
  • No kidding. The fact that we never electrified any of it kind of shows where our priorities lie. It was a dumb idea even before climate change to run our entire rail system on wasteful diesel generators carried by the damn train instead of power plants. Now folks want to use batteries and fucking hydrogen, when we've had the solution for more efficient trains forever.

  • Ah Bernie, what could have been...
  • I'm not arguing in bad faith, you're making an argument that has zero substance to it. There's not a fucking argument to be had here.

    If you're saying both simultaneously that Hilary went left and that she didn't go left, you're just arguing with yourself.

  • Terraforming
  • Red Mars pretty much depicted that as well, with a big plastic bubble enclosing the required green space. I think it's reasonable to assume that you'd need the technology to create some bubbles well in advance before you could do anything on a planetary scale.

  • Ah Bernie, what could have been...
  • What I’m saying is that she stuck her head a tiny bit left, and guess what happened? The voters didn’t turn out.

    So you're saying that she went too far left for the electorate right? Or are you saying her going left had no appreciable impact, because she didn't go left at all and these massive paragraphs you're writing are just an exercise in pretending to be a LLM?

  • Ah Bernie, what could have been...
  • Democrats pretend they can’t just change the rule.

    And even more, they pretend like Republicans won't change the rule. If parliamentary democracy required a supermajority to do anything, every government would fall.

  • Modi loses ground in parliament, but his Hindu nationalist policies are here to stay

    For the first time since Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party swept to power in 2014, the party did not secure a majority on its own in 2024 national election. But the prime minister’s coalition is still expected to run the country for another five years.

    Modi’s allies generally support pro-Hindu legislation, but making new policies could be complicated by coalition politics and a slimmer majority.

    Despite a setback, many of the Hindu nationalist policies he’s instituted over the last 10 years remain locked in place

    When TikTok mobilized its users to lobby Congress, it backfired spectacularly.

    How the House revived the TikTok ban bill before most of us noticed

    Interesting to note here: getting preteens to confusedly call Congress with threats of self harm and questions like "what is Congress" with a push notification is not the best plan

    Biden on hot mic: ‘Come-to-Jesus meeting’ with Netanyahu on the way

    President Biden told a Democratic lawmaker and members of his Cabinet after the State of the Union address that he told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that they will need to have a “come-to-Jesus meeting.”

    Biden’s comments, captured on a hot mic as he spoke with Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) on the floor of the House chamber, came after Bennet congratulated the commander in chief on his speech and pressed him to keep pressure on Netanyahu over increasing humanitarian issues in Gaza.
