If such things can be done to Britney, most people aren’t really safe.

Did you actually do the math for this? The Peloton itself is almost $2000 (over that with tax in many states) for the regular model, or about $2500 for the “plus”. And then you have to pay $40 a month for the Peloton membership.

She said in the video she spends $864-$1296 a year on spin classes. So it will take a while to break even on the cost, especially if she is actually in the lower range.

Also, she has a gym membership, so she could also just use the bikes there if she just wants to use a stationary bike alone.

She said she spends $325 per month on healthy groceries & $325 per month on health eating out. ($75 a week each).

If that is actually her entire food budget, I think she’s underestimating. $75 a week on eating out isn’t really very many meals, so she would still have to make most of her food at home. $325 seems unrealistically low as an entire grocery budget for a single person who is buying “healthy” foods and not being especially frugal or budget conscious.

No I guesstimated based on my intuition. I looked it up after the fact but didn’t follow up for some reason. I have seen “knock-off” Pelotons for $500-600 so i figured maybe real thing was 2x that, not 4x.

yeah that makes sense. I eat mostly at home and even when I eat “out” it’s cheap stuff, so my sense of what food costs is skewed towards thrifty.

First 3.5min have a glance at some math people used for making a Tool Assisted Speedrun. Looks like some good thinking and effort went into it.


Who needs photoshop when you take 100 photos in order to post one? The one you post isn’t representative of regular life.


Frogs eat bugs.


Adopted children get rehomed through Facebook groups, sometimes after living with their parents for 9+ years. It’s apparently pretty common and people do it without filling out any government paperwork so there’s no oversight and presumably lots of abuse. What the fuck.


A lot of people are mean, and stay mean even in really inappropriate contexts:


Also sometimes male customers just assault women working at restaurants:



A report of widespread ~illiteracy

The soybeans will make up for it, no doubt.

patio11 knows some stuff about social dynamics. His tweets about it are intentionally vague, which helps avoid offending people. I still like them enough to read them and guess at what he means.

Linkus says his biggest obstacle to being a successful streamer was his voice being too high pitched, and tells a story about using software to modify his voice for YouTube videos (which he said made it sound artificial, not great) and getting more views than on other channels with a higher voice.

Raise the status of software engineering. Social Network times a thousand.

Did he mean raise the social status of software engineering?
