You can take it as a plus or minus for this argument that Biden was consistently among the poorest legislators and made a big deal out of it

Democrats in Congress might be better at taking advantage of a popular class narrative if less of them were millionaires.

This is the part in the James Bond movie where the villain starts cooking up diseases to collect and embezzle the reward

It seems like what you want out of a global surveillance system for infectious disease is to deliver very large financial prizes to governments that identify and publicize new pathogens (or variants etc) because otherwise countries will cover them up to avoid travel bans.

Lakers might be looking to tank this one tonight after LeBron James got suspended. Anthony Davis questionable with flu-like symptoms not related to Covid-19. It might be Carmelo vs. Knicks.

To the twentysomethings that follow me, allow me a brief moment of fatherly advice. If you live in a cold climate, get yourself a proper warm winter coat. Doesn't have to be expensive or fancy or stylish. But warm. Get a warm coat. That's all! As you were.

Went from finishing Lauren Groff’s Matrix to starting Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary in one sitting. I’m Johnny Knoxville and this is Jackass.

This is not a joke, Leahy is a Batman superfan and has cameo'd in five films. It's delightful

Parents across the country who've been fighting school programs on race and diversity have honed in on another target in recent months: Emotional and mental health initiatives. New one from me & @tylerkingkade: Quick thread on what this is all about...
