Good morning! Today is Labor Day in the US. As we celebrate the accomplishments of the labor movement, especially the eight-hour work day and the 40-hour work week, let's also remember that Labor Day in the US is set in September because Pres. Cleveland feared the socialist and anti-authority implications of putting the holiday on May 1, which he felt would have been an implicit celebration of the Haymarket Affair.

learning computer science is probably the single worst thing you can do to your ability to comprehend complex concepts. it'll take years to climb back up to normal person levels where you're no longer trying to analogise everything to some computer part you've convinced yourself you understand because you can somewhat get it to do what you want sometimes & have a favourite bad metaphor about it you use to confuse anyone else looking to understand it

Student debt politics

First, what pressure do you mean. Second, no it wasn't. It was a mainstream Democratic Party thing for years. Even Chuck Schumer wanted to forgive like $50k.

Biden was willing to back away from it, but he was afraid of midterm losses.

The most ridiculous conspiracy theory I ever heard that I never heard anywhere else was a crank who called me at work and told me wind turbines are actually powered by natural gas. And that they spin like desk fans, not actually generating power.
