How to Know You’re Not Insane (And how a Cards Against Humanity Staff Writer was fired.)

quote [ Now that the Polygon piece has been released, I feel like parts of the story deserve more details, and I want to express some of the thoughts I’ve had in the last two years since I was placed in a mental ward against my will for five days by my bosses. ]

Cards Against Humanity must've hired a consultant from the NYPD. Fuck'em.

Unlike sex, VR is crazy better when you do it underwater

quote [ Virtual reality already plays Jedi mind tricks on your brain, but underwater VR is like a zen Jedi masterstroke. ]

Damn, I really wanna try this!

Marvel Comics shows us exactly what Captain America would have done in Vietnam

quote [ So it’s no surprise that Spider-Man: Life Story #1 is a Spider-Man story — except for when it isn’t. Sure, it’s definitely about Peter in the ’60s, not long after he was bitten by everyone’s favorite radioactive spider, but it’s also a look into just what some of Marvel’s other A-Listers were doing at the time. By revising Marvel Comics history with a modern eye and blending it with Marvel Universe history, Life Story #1 does what the real comics of the ’60s didn’t, couldn’t.

It takes an honest look at where Captain America would have stood on the Vietnam War. ]

I hate when my non-political comics get political. /s

May 15, 1970: Jackson State Killings

quote [ On May 15, 1970, the police opened fire shortly after midnight on students (and passersby) in a May 14 protest of the U.S. invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War at Jackson State College in Mississippi. Twelve students were wounded and two (21-year-old law student Phillip Lafayette Gibbs and 17-year-old high school student James Earl Green) were killed. ]

Often omitted from history classes, the Jackson State killings occurred 10 days after the Kent State killings.

Ohio

quote [ The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre), were the shootings on May 4, 1970, of unarmed college students by the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, during a mass protest against the bombing in neutral Cambodia by United States military forces. Twenty-eight National Guard soldiers fired approximately 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.

Some of the students who were shot had been protesting against the Cambodian Campaign, which President Richard Nixon announced during a television address on April 30 of that year. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance. ]

50 years ago today. Thankfully we've learned from the past and.... Oh, wait, I'm being told we haven't and instead have in fact militarized our police forces.

Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here | Internal Revenue Service

quote [ Steps to receive the Economic Impact Payment if you haven't filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019, and aren't receiving Social Security, SS Disability Income or Railroad Retirement benefits. This payment is also referred to as "stimulus checks" or "coronavirus relief." ]

If you haven't filed your US tax return in a few years because you didn't make enough money or what not, like me... In order to get your stimulus check, the IRS and Intuit made a site for you to file for 2019 if you made less that $12,200. It's really easy, and hopefully will get you that cheddar.
