I have often felt sad over the state of The Youths. What with robots coming for their jobs and Climate Change, their future seems lacking. But by the time its obvious that their lives will be a dystopian dead-end I will myself be retired and tucked safe away in a cottage somewhere, so I was never arsed enough to do anything about it. Maybe that makes me part of the problem.
That aside, the way the youths are misbehaving these days in regards to COVID-19--having parties and unprotected sex and then coming home and coughing on their elders...Well, I suspect a conspiracy. They're engaging in Wealth Redistribution by stealth. Go to your sex party, then later visit grandma and give her a hug. Cough discretely. If nothing happens, then nothing happens. If she goes, maybe she left you a wad of cash, or maybe she left you The Daltons (fancy teacups, worth a wad of cash).

I will liquidate my stock of toilet paper on the toilet paper Dark Net, buy Pabst up the yin-yan and in April gouge these pathetic yokels until they squeal! BOOYAH!

Which doesn't make any sense: you buy toilet paper and bottled water when you're expecting the Zombie apocalypse, or basic services to fail, not when you're expecting a sharp economic downturn.
I wonder if these people know something I don't?

But now I am actually listening to some guy with honest-to-gawd training and it isn't so bad. He's playing some classical shit. "BA DA LOONG DOONG DOONG PING! PING! PING! PING! BA DA LOONG DOONG DOONG PING! PING! PING! PING!" Maybe Mozart. Definitely not Zep, and not that Billy Eyelash kid. You notice she's always getting nose-bleeds, by the way? In every video I watch. She's anemic and she should see a doctor. And her brother, who writes her stuff, should go into a used music store somewhere and buy an electric guitar. They're probably cheap as fuck these days because young musicians don't know what to do with them. Billy's brother could rediscover the power chord or something.
In any case, he should buy his Sis some iron tablets.
As for these electric guitar thingys. They use them in the video below. Young people should take note. They would make your music suck way less.

Editor’s note: In the original article, Michael Rogers intended to say “early evolutionary ancestors” instead of Neanderthals when speaking about the agricultural revolution. As well, he intended to say there’s no anthropological evidence of Type 2 diabetes, not Type 1. All changes have been made in his quotes.
Not even sure the phrase "early evolutionary ancestors" cuts it science-wise in this context but fuck it I'm in a good mood. We'll let it go. Kudos to Bianca Bharti for fixing things and being a good sport about it. As for Doc Rogers, well they say he is from the University of Guelph. I had a friend who went there. When I asked him what it was like he said Guelph is the sound a whale makes when it swallows. I don't know what that means but I don't think its a compliment.

“For the last million years, we’ve evolved with a very specific diet that’s been based on whole foods,” [Michael] Rogers said. “There hasn’t been a change in our diets this drastic in all of human evolution with the exception of one event in human history: when the Neanderthals ventured from forests into pastoral land and started … agricultural practices,” more than 12,000 years ago.
I don't know who Michael Rogers is, but this kind of quote is the kind of thing that makes you think he isn't much of an expert. I mean, the timing of wheat domestication is about right, a couple thousand years too early, maybe. But the species is wrong. The last Neanderthals walked maybe 40,000 years before crops were domesticated, unless Mr. Rogers knows something nobody else does.
Seriously, this is a big fat fucking boner of a mistake: Neanderthals invented agriculture. BULLSHIT!!! That the NP published it without fact checking is embarrassing. And if you are trying to criticize alt-meat, making this kind of claim isn't going to help.
PS. I have never tried a Beyond Meat product nor do I have an opinion on the company.
