The schools in my hometown are severely understaffed like everywhere else; my mom, a certified teacher, would be a great sub. Too bad there's no mask mandate that would make it safe (enough) for her to do so

She goes downstairs, opens up the fridge, and sees a cake box, with a massive cake inside. She calls her husband. "Uh, did you buy a cake??" Husband: "Little Charlie and I bought it at the grocery store yesterday for Teddy's birthday!"

Yesterday, he convinced his mom (my friend) that they should make a birthday cake for Teddy's birthday. Okay, okay, his mom says, let's make a cake. She starts putting together the ingredients, and realizes she needs to go check if they have extra butter in downstairs fridge 2/

My 4 yr-old friend, Little Charlie, has a rainbow stuffed bear named Teddy. This bear came with a pin that said "Happy Birthday" so in Little Charlie's world, every day is Teddy's birthday. 1/

one of many reasons history of communications/broadcasting classes are so important: they teach us that we used to have different ways of arranging media ownership and the limits we put on it!! but they did not consolidate wealth in nearly the same way

there is now such an incomprehensible deluge of call/sms spam and spoofing that these wireless providers must be considered fully complicit, not just negligent, in what is clearly a soft infrastructure crisis
