So I went to a speed dating event, which probably isn't the smartest idea, since i'm quite introvert. Anywho, it was really loud and it was difficult to hear what people were saying.

After a while I dated a girl from England, who recently moved to Stockholm, so we spoke english and things went well, and we realized that both of us were working with music, and she goes, so can you name one of your favourite bands?

Me: "I like Oasis".
She: "Sorry couldn't hear you, please say it again."
Me: "I like Oasis."
She: "Still so much noise, please say it again."
Me: "Oasis, I like Oasis."

Then she looks at me in quite a mean way, and im thinking "what did I say?"

Then she looks at me again and says:
"Sorry, are you telling me you like racists?"

Then I start laughing, and write it down instead, and then she starts laughing like crazy too, and everyone's looking at us.  :)

Well, it looks like private equity ghouls have just about killed off Deadspin.

They were pushing out some solid content today but I guess that led to this:

Oh I'm sure once they've cleared out everyone there'll be some sort of Zombie version of the site with the name Deadspin where every post is some sort of "Look at this sick catch in the end zone! Tubular!" or whatever. But Deadspin as it's existed for 15 years or so is almost certainly gone.

lol I like this.

It's good to get out of your comfort zone. If you stay within your comfort zone your whole life you never challenge yourself and quite often you miss out on positive change. Good for you :)

Albert Einstein on Socialism:

https://monthlyreview.org/2009/05/01/why-socialism/

Quote
This crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism. Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive success as a preparation for his future career.

I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion. A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman, and child. The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society.

So, Tesla's truck didn't go over so well...like with anyone.

Tesla stock dropped 6% in one day after it's shown.

No, it did not. My friend is a big Tesla fan and was really excited about the unveiling. He was pretty shell shocked.  ;D

They're out of their minds if they think that's gonna sell much... Pretty poor show for a company fighting for profitability.

I was planning on going electric with my next car and was waiting to see this truck.   Really disappointed.

I think the Rivian truck is interesting...they've got investment from Ford.  Not sure of Canadian plans as of yet, and they're still a couple of years away in the US.
