I know one that thinks that Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates are in cahoots. It hurts my brain to go on her FB wall.

I think when you’re dumb it must just be really attractive to think, “I can’t be dumb, obviously, so I guess I must just be smarter than all the smart people...”

Out of curiosity, I checked the Twitter feed for a prominent anti-vaxxer that I know of (this woman who runs a site called “Health Nut News”; she’s also married to the quack Dr Mercola if you’ve heard of him) – she’s wayyyy playing down the COVID threat, spreading Bill Gates conspiracy theories, and saying we’re overreacting. It doesn’t surprise me: when the whole world is anxious for a vaccine, and you’ve built your whole following on vaccines being the enemy, you’ve gotta do something to maintain legitimacy with your base.

Not an anti-vaxxer (for reference, I get the flu shot every year)... honestly a little concerned about the coronavirus shot. They’re cutting corners to get it pumped out ASAP, such as skipping animal testing. I’m worried that they be under so much time pressure that they neglect due diligence.

I saw a thread on another app where there was some tip-toeing around the topic and they were afraid this would create a more forceful government mandate for all vaccines. They sounded a little batty to me. They were parroting comments like “we all know the media lies” etc. and I felt so sad because I understand there are points of view and maybe it’s fair to say don’t take all media at face value, but I’m sad and disappointed there’s so many people that have just decided they can’t listen to one party or one lens so they shut off all intellectual curiosity or willingness to consider different perspectives if even to reinforce their own view. Plus they were saying things like the President was doing a good job with clear communication so 😣

Anti-western disinformation campaigns from malignant nations such as Russia foment this craziness.

I had one send this to me directly with the msg, “please, just watch the first 3 min. 100% true”

Open ended question: Should I prefer to go for Series A-B funded startups with 30 day notice period or well established companies with 60 day notice period?

Salaries tend to be more or less within the same range, startups paying a bit more. Given the current market, the bigger company seems more stable but the 60 day notice period looks like it will make it harder to switch from there.

Tell me there is hope…my son is week 3 in daycare (almost 8 months old) and will NOT sleep. There is too much noise/crying babies, stimulation in general (bright lights) to have him nap and screams if they put him in a crib. They asked us what could work but what works isn’t what they can do. Either they hold him or put him in a less stimulating environment (subtle light, quieter) which both aren’t an option. Anyone have a similar experience? Do we figure out a different arrangement?

Anyone working in France, if you're interviewing for a job for any position below "executive" and they give you a contract that categorizes you as an executive/cadre in their CCN, it's an obvious attempt to circumvent labor laws and it means they'll make you work overtime and won't have to pay you for it.

Dear boss,

We are perfectly aware you're too busy to deal with this right now - but we're equally as perfectly aware that you know:

A small share of your Managers and a few of their own reports are working themselves to death - because you can't be arsed to deal with the large remainder who don't contribute much if anything!

We suggest you try to keep the bosses we don't collectively hate alive! Pro-tip: "crying" means "stressed and unhappy"

Sincerely, all of us!
