  1. "Long time, no see." and "No can do."

    They are upset that we took something that was originally mockery of non English speaking people and turned into a normal informal English lexicon used by everyone? I would imagine this has made life better for non English native speakers because given native English speakers are now using lax slang that in a way mimics non native speakers, the non native speakers will be less likely to be mocked for standing out with incorrect grammar.

  2. Walk-in appointments are Karma's way of getting you to the universe your belong more quickly – the Mandela or Butterfly effect. You can also get there by simply standing by when you witness tyranny in action – becoming a stand-in for the you that did the right thing in the right universe while you continued to ignore the law of karma

  3. Just imagine a hospital ship and mechanized land vehicles (transport and and road building) required to allow one student who is a quadriplegic the ability to attend and actively participate in the amazon studies. Absurd? The Administrative State and compliance with their laws have no limit to absurdity

  4. The seldom spoken truth is that diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, affirmative action, etc. all mean putting less qualified and less intelligent people into positions of authority by discriminating against more competent and intelligent people. Hence, the increasing stupidity of policies emerging from academia, health executives, public health agencies, government agencies of all kinds, and corporations.
