March is Women’s History Month.

A reminder that after no fault divorce was finally legalized in 1970, female suicide rates dropped 20%.🤯

The "strong 1950s family unit" GOP is nostalgic about ignores record high female suicide, suffocating domestic violence, & zero female financial autonomy.

Or maybe that’s the GOP’s goal.😐

@QasimRashid also, intimate violence decreased by 30% and a 10% decrease in women being murder by their partners. These statistics are definitely worth nothing. https://users.nber.org/~jwolfers/papers/bargaining_in_the_shadow_of_the_law.pdf

@sjvn perfect.

As ever their claim about why the Second Amendment exists is completely bogus. It is there, at the behest of the Southern slave states, so they could raise a militia to take down any uprising by slaves and indentured workers in rebellion. If slavery hadn't been fully embraced by the Constitution via the 3/5 compromise then the rationale for the Second Amendment was completely absent.

The modern day take is completely ass about face.

Liberals should join the national guard.

macnchez,
@macnchez@mastodon.social avatar

@sjvn let’s be real here though- these people have been fed so much fear and scary shit on Fox News over the last 20 years, what do you really expect? They’ve been groomed into this and will be used to fight civilians, not the government. Totally misses the point and making fun of them definitely doesn’t help. It riles them up and gets them angrier. It’s sick really… they’re not in their right minds.

I made it to Restaurant Ernst in Berlin today - folks, everything I heard about it got topped by the real experience.

I will not call it best because there is no way to compare Vermeer to Van Gogh or El Greco to Mucha, they are too different - but it's definitely among my absolute recommendations.

I had the full menu (their only option) + the non-alcoholic pairing. Wanna come along?

(P.S. Folks, remember, I block ruthlessly if you poop on my party.)

@vicgrinberg

Wow! What a menu!

If I read you correctly, they aim to highlight the special qualities of each main ingredient, rather then decomposing it.

I reckon, this is a great way to honour the people actually providing us with the basic ingredients.

Once I finished my move to Berlin and am financially solvent, this is a place I what to dine.

EDITED, added more.

Via Angry Staffer:

I hope folks understand how big this DOJ 60 day window not applying to Trump is.

That means that DOJ is willing to try these cases into September, October, and early November.

It makes the SCOTUS delay much less daunting, and raises the likelihood of pre-election conviction.

Facts about car culture:

Car weight has risen by 34% since 1980.

Bigger cars safer for their occupants endanger anything smaller, a phenomenon known as “crash incompatibility.”

For every life saved by a driver switching from car to SUV or pickup, 4.3 other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists are killed.

An SUV is 28% more likely than a regular car to kill another car’s occupants.

An SUV going 24 mph would have twice the impact as a sedan on a pedestrian’s brain.

🎵 Post songs you used to listen to non-stop but haven’t listened to for a longlong time along with what you’re drinking 🎶

You asked me to come down and watch the parade
To march down the street like the Duracell bunny
With a wink and a wave from the cavalcade...

🍷 Elliott Smith - Rose Parade + Handle of Vodka and OJ🍸

Post often • share • make some friends

@taylorlorenz Appreciated. I think my continued worry is that the thesis hinges on the fact that people will see LOTT as outright dumb based on the interview, and I'm just not confident that is true especially in light of Trump. Maybe that is comparing apples to oranges, though?

@taylorlorenz True for anything on the Inter- ... anything period actually. Fox does this all the time. I remember in particular the way the "Killary" crapola managed to fool so many people including someone who used to be a good friend I thought was smarter than that. Such thing spread all over and everyone took them seriously.

Memetic thinking is a seriously powerful tool with humans I guess.

@RickiTarr I've always found the Moonlight Sonata — the first movement, at least — peaceful, meditative, restful. Almost minimalist in places, with sometimes just one note every other measure penciling out the melody.

Second movement, honestly, doesn't do much for me.

@RickiTarr i find that piece annoying AF. especially toward the end where he trots out all the different instruments. yes, mike, you can play 87 different instruments, that's very clever, but do you play any of them well? not so much.
