    A California social media prankster claims he was hospitalized with the coronavirus — just days after posting a video of himself licking a toilet bowl for a nauseating online challenge. The TikTok personality, known as Larz, reportedly posted footage of himself in a hospital bed on Sunday, according to the Daily Mail. “I tested positive for Coronavirus,” the 21-year-old from Beverly Hills tweeted on an account that has since been suspended, the outlet reported
  • Easy way to save $4 trillion and huge personal suffering

    Health care workers are widely complaining that they lack sufficient masks, which they need to protect them from being infected by Coronavirus patients. This is consistent with well established prudent health care practice. So it's apparent that the task force lied to us when it advised that healthy people shouldn't wear a mask, based on the lie that a mask doesn't protect the wearer, but rather protects others from being infected by an infected person wearing the mask. This advice seemed very strange when news programs regularly showed most people in public in China wearing a mask. This lie apparently...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday called on members of Congress to practice “social distancing” in response to the coronavirus outbreak. “As you know, at the direction of the Sergeant at Arms, the House and Senate have canceled Capitol tours for now. As the House continues our work to confront this public health emergency, we must ensure that we can continue to serve our constituents effectively,” Pelosi said in a Dear Colleague letter. “The health and safety of our staff is essential to this mission. In bipartisan consultation with the Attending Physician and the Sergeant at Arms, and out...
  • The Relationship Between Social Justice and Impeachment

    The Relationship Between Social Justice and Impeachment I have not found a definition of “social justice” that conforms to the Constitution. Defining social justice by example is better. America achieves justice by guaranteeing every citizen “due process in law”. The guarantee is that the accused may challenge the evidence and witnesses against him and offer his own evidence and witnesses. The accused does not need to prove innocence; the task is for the courts to prove guilt. Learning that Social Justice offers better justice over existing due process justice guaranteed by the Constitution is intriguing. So of course the first...

    Hundreds of thousands of social media users have watched University of Tennessee quarterback Brian Maurer's ex-girlfriend celebrate dumping him on TikTok. Morgan Hood, a sophomore at the school, recently took to the social media platform to share a humorous but scathing video about the end of the couple's relationship, in which she indicates that she's much better off without him. The TikTok quickly went viral — but has led to the young Nashville native being brutally trolled on Twitter.

    A man has died after reportedly filming himself swallowing poisonous centipedes and geckos alive. The Chinese vlogger, named only by his surname Sun, live-streamed himself carrying out the stomach-churning challenge, which he had hoped would gain him more online followers. The 35-year-old is said to have been found lifeless by his girlfriend when she went to check on him at his flat in the eastern city of Hefei. He was later pronounced dead. Sun had also been filming himself drinking large amounts of alcohol, as well as eating mealworms for the platform DouYu, where he had 15,000 followers.

    Hundreds of Russian Instragrammers have been kicked out of a toxic dumping ground in just a week after they began flocking there because it resembles a tropical paradise. Guards have been posted outside the 'Siberian Seychelles' and an access road dug up to prevent the attention-hungry internet users from reaching the site, but they have simply taken to walking there instead. The deep blue water and white sand at the dumping site has made it a favourite backdrop for Instagram shots, but authorities warn the pool is actually a highly toxic dumping ground for a nearby coal power plant. Authorities...

    So Twitter's algorithm apparently considers calling Ana Navarro a "chickenhead" hate speech. I retweeted a tweet that showed screenshots of two tweets from her regarding Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, each taking completely opposite positions. I added a comment to my retweet that if anyone needed further proof that Ms. Navarro is a chickenhead, there it is. Within moments I received a notice from Twitter stating that I would no longer be able to post in my account, until I both removed the tweet and did 12 hours in Twitter jail. Given how fast it happened, I obviously triggered an...

  • What Do the Oligachs Have in Mind For Us?

    The recent movement to investigate, and even break up, the current tech oligarchy has gained support on both sides of the Atlantic, and even leapt across the gaping divide in American politics. The immediate concerns relate to such things as the control of key markets by one or two firms, the huge concentration of wealth accruing to the tech elite and, increasingly, the oligarchy’s control over and manipulation of information pipelines. What has not been discussed nearly as much is the end game of the oligarchs. What kind of world do they have in mind for us? (snip) For an...

    Poor governance and privacy concerns have knocked Facebook out of an influential ethics index that tracks socially responsible companies.  Standard & Poor's Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Index said that it had booted Facebook after the company scored poorly for social responsibility and governance, achieving 22 and 6, respectively, out of 100.  Facebook's disappointing results were due to a number of privacy concerns at the social network in recent years including “a lack of transparency as to why Facebook collects and shares certain user information”, said Reid Steadman, S&P's social and governance chief.  This includes allowing more than 150 companies...

    Pinterest raised $1.43 billion in its IPO after pricing the offering at $19 a share on Wednesday, valuing the company at $10 billion. Pinterest, which is expected to start trading on Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange, had originally given a pricing range of $15 to $17. But investors appear to be showing an appetite for the social media company despite the challenges Lyft has faced since becoming the first consumer tech IPO of the year last month
