my goal (desired superpower?) is to be able to sincerely say "i'm sorry" when someone gets upset with me

... when i want to :-p

Mis-entering your email address is kind of like losing your keys, but in a public place with your home address attached and requiring that the finder enter your home *at least once* to let you know what you've done

... if they ever do so, and if that's all they want to do

tapping my nose means i've obtained a fisa warrant

really it's any (information?) system where someone can act upon you without your explicit knowledge

If something like this was in recent memory when the last presidential election occured, would fewer people have abstained from voting for Hillary?

The two Georgia runoff elections, scheduled for January 5 with early voting starting on December 14, will determine control of the Senate, meaning Biden's ability to push through a Democratic agenda under his first term. But a number of pro-Trump Republicans have taken to Parler, the "free-speech" social media platform, to discourage members of their own party from voting.

if the credit bureaus can be used to invalidly harrass even police officers, why aren't we questioning their general validity?

Sovereigns might also place a lien on an officer's property as retribution. While the sovereign never plans on collecting, the lingering effect on the officer could be devastating if not addressed immediately and handled properly. It is imperative to continuously check your credit for signs of illegal activity and to also check with the Clerk of Courts and Register of Deeds offices in your particular county for sovereign filings against you.

Are alt righters being educationally trolled?

In fact, this image was an altered version of a real indictment that had nothing to do with Soros. The actual indictment involved six Russian hackers charged with computer attacks “intended to support Russian government efforts to undermine, retaliate against, or otherwise destabilize” various foreign entities

It likely won't be able to evolve as freely as it had in the past ... but who knows? And certainly it could evolve in any particular direction if unchallenged.

The English believed God communicated through plague. But my research argues that declaring “God willed the plague” simply opened, rather than closed, the debate. Rulers, explorers and colonists in the 17th century had an interest in pinpointing the cause of disease. This was partly because plague was used to procure land deemed as empty, and even clear it of inhabitants.

How might this narrative evolve?

Citing "growing evidence," that he is now immune to the virus, Krabbenhoft said "for me to wear a mask defies the efficacy and purpose of a mask and sends an untruthful message that I am susceptible to infection or could transmit it. I have no interest in using masks as a symbolic gesture."

think of what it would be like to be one of these plague-immunity people :blobmindblown:

“[Gage] basically said: If you can’t see the disease, if you can’t see what’s happening, then how do I know it exists?” Randall says. And like many others in California, Gage wasn’t even sure white people could get the plague in the first place. “The idea was that if your ancestors had survived the plague in Europe, then you somehow evolved immunity,” he says.
