Fursona Non Grata

quote [ Milo Yiannopoulos announced that he has adopted a “fursona” as a snow leopard and that he purchased tickets to a furry convention; in response, organizers rescinded his event registration.
Yiannopoulos also claimed on Telegram that he had submitted a form to suggest he host a panel called “The Politics of Fur.” ]

Millions in debt, deplatformed, and desperate for a new grift, I'm not all that surprised Milo made a cynical attempt to reach out to the furry community.

Conversion via Twitter

quote [ Phelps-Roper spent the summer and the fall in an existential spiral. She would conclude that everything about Westboros doctrine was wrong, only to be seized with terror that these thoughts were a test from God, and she was failing. You literally feel insane, she said. Eventually, her doubts won out. I just couldnt keep up the charade, she said. I couldnt bring myself to do the things we were doing and say the things we were saying. ]

I've been enjoying not reading anything new about the Westboro Baptist folks for some time now, then I read this and enjoyed it just as much.

It's nice to see that sometimes the person you're arguing with on the internet isn't ignoring you.

The Inevitable Slow Death of RadioShack

quote [ Another former employee, Joe Bois, remembers being required report for work at a mall outpost at 4:30 am on Black Friday in 2004, only to sit idle for hours waiting for customers who never arrived. Bois, now a writer for the sports website SB Nation, wrote a piece in November arguing that searching for coherence in RadioShack?s strategic decisions was futile. ?It?s like retracing the steps and doings of a drunk person,? he wrote. ?Okay, here?s where he keyed the cop car. Wait, why?d he do that? I don?t know, but his pants are lying here, so this is before he stripped naked and tried to rob the library.? ]

When I was in the 7th grade, I spent four hours at a RadioShack for career day. It felt very much like Purgatory.
