"Get 'em while they're young" is an important policy to any mass delusion, and the Conspiracy is no exception. It is critical to tie down precocious minds so they either stay onside or are so tied in knots they don't participate. One of the Conspiracy's most important tools is identifying precocious youth as "gifted" and filling them with extra rules and great expectations so they spend the rest of their lives either as powerful Conspiracy lieutenants or crushed by anxiety so they don't fight.

Sometimes I like to put on the "Every Open Eye" album by CHVRCHES and bop around like a young woman in a 1980s music video.
I haven't had a #bike in three years, so this new ride is a real treat and luxury to me right now.
So many promising skaters at the #derby league's assessments last night. I'm really hoping most of them get offered a jersey.
Congratulations Kentucky (and congratulations Governor-elect Beshear)!
A red state that went for Trump by 30 points just elected a Democratic governor. Beshear ran on issues; Bevin ran on his Trump affiliation.
This is a kindly reminder that there's a really good chance phrasing a suggested course of action with "Why don't you just..." carries the extra denotation that the course of action was easy to think up and thus risks insulting the intelligence of the person receiving the suggestion. "Just" is a trivializer word in this context, so be lazy, use fewer words, and don't make others feel trivial!
An excellent intro to hauntology, our cancelled future, and the barries to breaking free from the thinking that cancels the future.
Today for the Atlanta Pride Parade I stood in front of the haters and held prettier things in front of their terrible signs. One of the nice things about being a bit of a weirdo for most of my life is that when people are *obviously* terrible I find them really easy to just basically ignore. Bonus: Now I've learned how to use ear defenders and manage my sensory experience better so that parades and such aren't even terribly overwhelming.
