“Give me back my stapler,” he says. He can’t take it anymore. The woman at Staples has started sending him Christmas cards. “I know you took it, douchecanoe.”

or, the one where Shane has odd courting rituals, Ryan remembers the first time they met, and I give up all semblance of dignity.

Judge to EPA: you are legally required to turn over Pruitt's documentary evidence for climate denial / Boing Boing
Instead of complying, the EPA refused, so PEER sued. In court, the EPA argued that complying with the request would be unduly burdensome, consuming "countless hours researching and analyzing a vast trove of material on the effect of human activity on climate change" which is “a subjective assessment upon which reasonable minds can differ.”

The judge ruled against the EPA and slammed them in his decision, calling the EPA's response an "epistemological smokescreen" that was "both misplaced and troubling."

Pruitt is a trumpist and thus a subscriber to Norman Vincent Peale's fake it till you make it doctrine in which you just insist that you are right until you are either revealed to be right or you get bored and start claiming you're right about something else, or possibly until you die.

Star Wars has a white male fandom problem
That seems to scare this toxic subset of fandom the most: the idea that the thing they ardently believe makes them special is actually something everyone possesses, including young women, people of color, LGBTQ+ fans, and so on. In reality, Star Wars was always for everyone, but now online fandom and wider media coverage means those poisonous fans can’t ignore that, even before the films stopped exclusively positioning white men as heroes. Rather than share it, these fans seem dead set on destroying the thing they claim to love so much. That’s not the mindset of a fan. That’s just garden-variety bullying.

The odd reality of life under China's all-seeing credit score system
In the UK, credit scores are mostly used to determine whether people can get a credit card or loan. But in China, the government is developing a much broader “social credit” system partly based on people’s routine behaviours with the ultimate goal of determining the “trustworthiness” of the country’s 1.4 billion citizens.

It might sound like a futuristic dystopian nightmare but the system is already a reality. Social credit is preventing people from buying airline and train tickets, stopping social gatherings from happening, and blocking people from going on certain dating websites. Meanwhile, those viewed kindly are rewarded with discounted energy bills and similar perks.
