american healthcare is paying $180-$600* a month to HOPE your healthcare will cover your medication and treatment,
and you still have to wait 5 months for any procedure,
and most plans don't cover the ER,
and then in the end you owe tens of thousands of dollars and its legal for insurers to discriminate against you and you didn't actually fix anything
*an average, sometimes it's even more

I Hate Keir Starmer: an essay by Tom Whyman published in Gawker
I finally woke up a few minutes ago after I was trying to help one woman on a girls night out by suggesting a board game and when she lit up and said great I knew I didn't have one on me and that's what threw me awake like a pilot pulling the ejector seat cord and I absolutely do not want to go back to sleep anymore.
But I kept sleeping and then I had to tell a whole crowd of people (who had been disappointed the previous day after something similar happened with another act) that I had to abandon the set about thirty minutes early and they were all pissed and I was scrambling to find an alternative because I had ruined nights out and people were stuck there.
I do not like the escalation if I don't wake up.
I really felt tonight like I could have woken up at half 2 after a dream about running a pretty successful, if high stress, comedy gig.
But I kept sleeping and started setting up a routine that I knew I couldn't finish because I was missing something important.
Good news: It's no longer my job to take attendance!
Now all I have to do is obtain a alphanumeric code that's only temporarily valid and correctly transcribe it onto a white board. Then every student will have to take out their own internet capable device and connect to the university website and correctly transcribe the code into their account! Magic!
I have been running into a situation where I keep using "RTX" to refer to hardware raytracing acceleration, but this is misleading because RTX is actually NVidia's trademark for their specific implementation and sometimes you want to contrast NVidia with AMD. To solve this, I would like to propose we now refer to the underlying technology as "HRT", for "Hardware Raytracing". "Within ten years all gamers will have access to HRT", et cetera

Wife of a country singer makes anti-trans jab; another country singer, Maren Morris, calls her out on it. Tucker Carlson weighs in, calling Maren a "lunatic country music person".
Maren then used that quote on a t-shirt, with all proceeds going to Trans Lifeline and GLAAD.
"Just two hours later, Morris said the shirt had raised $63,000, and on Saturday, she said the total had surpassed $100,000."
