Books and weight reps are alike.
There is light ones and there is heavy ones. The light ones pile up & feel good or bad, important or not. Heavy ones are those that really matter, but you're never going to get them without pilling up the light ones. Heavy ones will give you an emotional, intellectual &/or physical orgasm that no light ones could ever give you, but without pilling up those light ones you will collapse under the heavy ones. Light ones are the journey, heavy ones the enlightenment.

#ConspiracyTheory of the week; I keep coming across people who loudly insist we block and ignore anyone who smells even vaguely alt-right (including insufficiently pure leftists), despite the fact that people isolated in cultish alt-right filter bubbles get indoctrinated more efficiently. What if some of these aggressive advocates of scorched earth cancel culture were actually alt-right agents provocateur, playing divide-and-rule games, and manipulating us into helping their cause?
"Their last city will fall soon," the general said, "completing our conquest."
"Completing?" said the emperor.
"If we burn their libraries, we will only see uprisings for two generations, before they forget."
"No. Have they no voices? They'll remember. Let them know we let them."

"I like the idea of a faster and distraction-free web but I don’t like the idea of web being controlled and molded by one company. Especially not one that is the largest advertising company in the world.
This is the Googled-web Google wants to see you develop. The web “delivered by Google”. Your site being integrated with all the other cool Google products such as Analytics and AdSense."
Recently I decided that I'm #leaving #Facebook for sure, the sooner the better. My goal is to delete my account before the start of 2021. In the mean time I'm looking for some #socialmedia #alternatives, especially for a #groupchat app to use with my friends and something with a functionality similar to #facebookgroups to #share documents & comment
