“Adjusting to space was a lot easier than adjusting to Earth”

by allthoughtswork

At 7 minutes in, astronaut Scott Kelly describes what a body goes through when you come back home from outer space. I get nauseated at family reunions, too, so I can relate.

And now, the president of the United States….

It’s got to gestate. The word gestate. It’s like when you’re cooking a chicken. Turkey for Thanksgiving. My mother made the best turkey.

Donald Trump, rally in West Virginia, August 21, 2018

Do you see how nice I’m behaving tonight? Have you ever seen this? We’re all behaving very well and hopefully we can keep it that way, right? We’re going to keep it that way.

This humorous 2007 British documentary on the class system could well have been filmed in America, with a few tweaks: Our royals are whichever celebrities are “in” this year, our wealth signaling involves dietary choices, and nobody gives a damn which accent you speak in, they only want to know which car you drive.

Polaris Slingshot 6-28-19

It’s called a Polaris Slingshot SL and it’s not a car, it’s a motorcycle. That’s what it had to be to avoid most safety regulations. 

I guess after shelling out around 25K for this tricked out grotesque, the two millennial males I saw inside couldn’t quite afford the helmets required by Oregon law to operate it because the baseball caps they had on were standard issue douchebag.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, that is a rose gold plated Ferrari SUV and, yes, that is an Uber sticker you see in the back window. I was running errands in Portland, Oregon, and it just happened.

I’m going to start drinking now.

PS: If anyone can tell me the exact model of this monstrosity, I’d like to laugh at it accurately.
