James Cameron movies.
What are the cathedrals of our era? Things which may have practical uses, but which also impress by showing our powers, reach toward our high aspirations, & induce shared awe & pride? Skyscrapers & moon landings were that more recently; what about now?

Can confirm that I was vaxxed and boosted, got Covid, and did not die. https://t.co/qDeX0aGj49
CDC update. In short: vaccines work and keep working! https://t.co/uZVMKZzzei https://t.co/spBOIrLsoN

Really enjoyed working on AB 2053 so that all these NIMBY bullshitters finally revealed their true colors once they couldnt use the progressive vaporware rhetoric anymore.
The League of @CalCities has OPPOSED AB 2053, the Social Housing Act. Their member cities and allies at @livableca have been saying: "cities don't build housing, developers do". Now they're opposing an opportunity for the state to help them develop that housing. https://t.co/VGo7QcOj3O

Unlike other judges, the ones in charge of the Pokémon TCG were chill with allowing something cool even though it doesn’t explicitly state their rights in the OG rules. https://t.co/qHVurN0JYx
This madman entered the Pokémon TCG North American International Championship with a 60 card deck made purely of novelty jumbo cards. The judges debated and ruled it was legal because card size is not specified in the rules.😂 https://t.co/82qwN2UAuY

Yes. Currently, the Left and Right in America are trying to harass each other into starting violence, so they can crush the other side in the name of restoring order. The Left harasses with cultural power, the Right with political/legal power.
@Noahpinion The key is to get your OPPONENT to choose violence when you have the stronger hand on that front.

Having a father in the picture actually doesn’t do shit for a woman who needs treatment for a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. https://t.co/EiAHk2aQig
1/6 Nature provides supports for pregnant women. They’re called fathers. When fathers fail there are extended families. Does government have a role to play when these don't suffice? Absolutely. But the *fundamental* way to help pregnant women is to restore marriage and fatherhood
