Research questionnaire (my research project) 

I'm working to validate a metacognition questionnaire, & it rquires a certain number of participants for the stats to work. (178 completed responses) It is anonymous and is approved by the Ethics Committee - it is about metacognition, personality, and self-efficacy and takes a REAL 30 mins on a computer to complete- big screen helps as 2 Qs have lots of choices. If anyone is willing, I'd be very grateful! #psychology #research

How can I learn more of indigenous philosophies while being white and respectful?

I am really getting sick of our Western human ideas of property.

NFTs seem to be all about ownership. Didn't those memes go viral because we SHARED? Wars are fought over property. We are so obsessed with possessing things. Someone please hit the reset button on this simulation. Thanks.

what in the crap

"Fox is making a blockchain animated series with Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon to sell you NFTs"

"Hey check out this new podcast!"

OK, sounds interesting! Maybe I will!

"It's exclusively available on (insert proprietary platform here)!"

Well it's not a fucking podcast then, is it?


Where labels stop being descriptive and start being prescriptive, somewhere along the line, you failed to grasp what the purpose of a label actually is

Final reminder: in 24 hours I will be giving a live webinar on Taking Control of Your Data. It will be free, it is expected to last 2-3 hours. Hope to see you there!

I am a magic 8-ball.
A wall hides the pain.
The small window to understanding my emotions is confusing at best and obfuscated by medication.
Therapy can help, but the process is jarring and also painful.

I just saw one of my favorite humans here in town and former podcast guest, Stump Kitchen is featured in a story on one of my favorite cooking sites!!

as we talk about the morality of vaccine patents

i think it is a nice time to also remember historical precident

jonas salk did not patent the polio vaccine. he went out of his way to make sure it was not patented.

he never got rich. he actively made sure he didn't get rich off of it.

but that history is full of stories about how for the rest of his life, jonas salk did not have to ever pay for a beer in any bar in this country. he would get on airplanes and once somebody recognized his name, the entire damn plane would stand up and clap for him. he constantly had hotel rooms comped, meals for free at restaurants, thus and so.

because he was surrounded by people who knew he had saved their children from having to ever consider the fear of an iron lung, and were overwhelmingly grateful for it.

he was always modest and demure when recognized thusly. but i think that when people start saying "well why else would someone make a vaccine, if not to get paid for it and hold the patent", i think it is good to remember these stories. the world did not punish jonas salk for not patenting the polio vaccine. the world loved him for it. maybe not in the structures that billionaires are most used to. but they did love him for it, in small ways, in humble ways, on the individual level.

I just folded a fitted sheet the "proper" way by myself. Please do not ask anything else of me today. I am spent.

When is Disney going to make a Star Wars sports drama centered around plucky podracers. Of course, there will an adorable robot sidekick and a toddler wookiee.

I think there has to be a difference between knowing your audience and performing for your audience. I will leave you with a quote from Neil Postman in "Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business."

"Our priests and presidents, our surgeons and lawyers, our educators and newscasters need worry less about satisfying the demands of their discipline than the demands of good showmanship."
