Sure sounds like the market has decided that Parler doesn’t deserve to survive. Capitalism, amirite?

uspol, throwback thursday 

am i like the only person who remembers this nytimes.com/2004/10/17/magazin / archive web.archive.org/web/2020122100

this is what i have been thinking about re: all the discourse in the wake of the attempted coup in washington, with people openly lying and most everyone else taking them at face value as if they were using words to say things and not simply making mouth hole noises while being fascist

There are two types of (Carbon-chain) plastics: 1) Thermoplastics; and 2) Thermo-Setting Plastics.
1) Thermoplastics are long-chain carbon molecules that are not chemically bonded together. The molecules can move over each other with strain. Hence they soften/liquify/melt when heated and thus are easily recycled. [Eg. PET]
2) Thermo-Setting Plastics' Carbon-chains are bonded together (eg. epoxy, UV-cured) and therefore do not melt when heated. [Eg. Poly-carbonate]. Not recyclable.

@space_cadet It’s under my understanding that plastic manufacturers stamp a recyclable symbol on each container, with one of the following numbers inside:

recyclable: Polyethylene terephthalate (PETE / PET) thermoplastic
recyclable: High-density polyethylene (HDPE) thermoplastic but oxidizes into a dark stiff plastic with limited usage
recyclable: PVC, not recyclable
recyclable: still not recyclable, you total rubes. you fell for it
recyclable: not recyclable, you idiots will believe anything
recyclable: not recyclable, literally lying about our product’s dangers is totally legal
recyclable: not recyclable, you pay for our product, and then you pay to clean up our mess, dumbasses

watching MacKenzie Scott give away billions of dollars she earned while suffering Jeff is really nice.

and then watching her give it away to smaller colleges and institutions rather than buying her name on a building at Harvard is so very much nicer.

I like her. She's the only billionaire I'll say that about, but I like her.
