Various and heterogeneous, from real political ones as de facto supporting US interests, eschatological ones concerning Israel's place in the second coming of Jesus such as with right wing evangelicals, tradition of Zionism proper from The Jewish State of Theodor Herzl forward.

Also, states use whatever bullshit necessary to bolster their actions, Israel is not wholly special in that regard.

I thought for a little while that gamergate was about ants. Like it had become a meme or something, I wasn't aware of the controversy. That was an innocent day or two before checking out what it was actually about.

Yeah, but, like, I don't know what KonMari is except that it's about throwing things away and there was some racism brouahaha on social media back in the day and everyone had to take a strong stance on keeping the household neat and tidy.

The footage, however, is so realistic it's indistinguishable from the real deal if it were attempted. Stanley Kubrick spent a year sculpting a 1:1 scale model out of cheese and his notoriously perfectionistic tendencies led the NASA to think it would have been easier to go to the real moon instead.

Why I wrote this: social media is a big part of contemporary lives yet I don't really see much in the way how to use it well as an individual, save for fear mongering and counter mongering. I remember /u/devtesla posting an article once on Rihanna's social media use which seemed pretty cool and aspirational and which was pretty much about embracing less.

Honestly I am quite technical an user and I really haven't stumbled upon an IRC client that I really like, approximately in the same way as I enjoy using a well-designed toaster. The one I used the longest was the one in Emacs! Discord is kinda pretty ok if you forget about the corporate side.

There are guides to getting books you want on IRC. I haven't used them for fiction but they seem to have the goods. I suspect you can figure out the rest yourself.

She's a very good essayist, actually. I haven't yet read her fiction save for two short stories, actually. She's on my list, however.
