I do hope the new Exorcist film tackles the dilemma a parent faces as to whether to let their child be possessed by a demon or leave them alone with a Catholic priest.
Indeed.

I read recently of a foreign visitor to Auckland airport who kept hearing bizarre announcements for a passenger to make their way to the 𝘔𝘺𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤 𝘊𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘦𝘯.

It took them some time to realise the kiwi announcer was asking the passenger to go to Domestic Check-in. 😂

What do we want? Time machines!
When do we want it? That’s irrelevant.

A few weeks ago, I was told by a store manager to call the cops, but I solved the problem myself by yelling my own announcement to the whole store, which was that I would break the car window to free the hot dog if the person with a dog in their car wasn't outside immediately. The manager called the cops on me for yelling in a store.

Give yourself permission to solve your own problems.

Rich people sure have it rough.

How will they pay their security team to protect their bunker after the financial system collapses?
Scarier yet, I heard one rich prick was looking into lethal-capacity shock collars to keep his guards in line.

Now here's a handy phrase!

I just did a rant on YouTube in which I coined the term “glass picket fence,” and I’m rather proud of it.

The glass picket fence refers to the fragility of the White suburban dream.

In context, I was explaining the zeitgeist of the 90s (see bio) and I said that in the 90s, we were busting through the glass picket fence propaganda of our own culture.

If you like it, use it, and I mostly don’t care about credit unless you’re an asshole about it.

it was the fuck aroundiest of times, it was the find outiest of times
I hadn't seen this Dickensification until this morning. I think the context suggests it is a response to crypto super-villain bankman-Fried being jailed for a bail breach, but more finding out generally would be good for lots of other people.

As an aside, does anyone else think the internal rhyme of "fuck about and find out" makes it better than what appears to be the more common "fuck around and find out"?
