How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

At least four senators sold a bunch of stocks right before the market nosedived: Burr, Inhofe, Loeffler, and Feinstein (three Republicans and technically-a-Democrat).

You know, the phrase "start sharpening the guillotines" gets thrown around a lot these days.

Oh man, that "Thankfully" is one of the biggest Mask Slips I have ever fucking seen.

"Whew, you guys, I thought for a second we'd actually have to pay our employees a living wage! But as it turns out we can continue to treat them like the expendable human garbage they are, because I mean come on, they're poor. And the poor are expendable human garbage."

Don't worry, they've 'corrected' it and it now reads "A thankfully much lower mortality rate means such a transformation is unlikely to follow coronavirus. Instead, policymakers must prevent a stunning rise in unemployment from scarring a generation with lower living standards."

The honest version still shows up in Google search results for the moment though.

Still better than The Polygon Class. I can only hope for a return to our roots in The Sprite Class.

Now, Bloomberg on the other hand, well, that's mask off all the time anyway!

EDIT: Replaced with a screenshot, 'cause I'm not gonna count on this one to stay up.

There aren't enough ultra-wealthy people to support Bloomberg magazine on their own with just subscriptions. They need to get normies angry enough to click too.
