I have barely started this, and I would like to award Caity Weaver the Pulitzer, and the Nobel Prize, and a Gold Glove, just all the awards you can give a person https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/14/style/enjoy-the-silence.html
@Pixley In 1994, "my irrational need to receive constant updates on all current events and internet gossip" was fulfilled by Usenet.
@Pixley On reading further, at least 20% of this person's problem is that in 1994 they were a child who had not yet learned to use the Yellow Pages (which I assume still exist based on the fact that they continued to be dumped, unasked for, on my doorstep annually at least through 2010).
@gcupc okay, thanks for reading
@Pixley I am torn between remembering 1994 better and also not having been an adult or even teen. Also this is wild.
@platypus my experience of 1994 had probably about as many Dunkaroos as Caity Weaver's did
@Pixley "One person seemed to think I was lying to get out of looking at a dog’s Instagram account."
@gzt that was one of my favorite lines!!!
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
