49.01/ Week forty-nine, June 19-25 2021, begins here.

Week 48 below

49.02/ 100%. I said this back in the day about dating as well. Only people dull to human pain and effort and/or those who lack functional life experience could say "how does it hurt?" with a straight face.

49.03/ For you music fans, esp. of early music played on period instruments, check out this great review of my wife's album "In the Salon of Madame Brillon: Music and Friendship in Benjamin Franklin’s Paris" by The Raritan Players (Rebecca Cypess, dir.) 

49.04/ I need to look into the numbers more, but this is fascinating data.

49.05/ Great line "Academic writing is wild bc you’ll read four articles just to write one sentence." and very useful thread

49.06/ Religion tip: when you disparage the "Old Testament" as cruel, you're perpetuating a (blood) libel against Judaism and Jews, describing us as bloodthirsty, ruthless, uncompassionate etc. Not only is it factually & ethically wrong, it leads to our deaths.

49.07/ Just thinking, if Seinfeld chose a '63 Stingray - possibly the best American car ever - for Pres. Obama, then what could he choose for Biden, a Corvette man? 

49.08/ Reminder: get your haircut tomorrow before Shabbat before the #ThreeWeeks start.

49.09/ Periodic reminder: science is not a topic, it's a method.

That's the deadly irony with these antivax skeptics: they reject vaccine science because they think it's an object or ideology or a religion (i.e. a topic) while attempting to do 'science' themselves (w/o method).

49.10/ People who are called "resilient" just means you can't hear them scream.

49.11/ Hear me out: the "it was a joke" defense is only available because the societal punishment for telling bad jokes is minimal. I suggest we need to mainstream higher punishments for telling offensive jokes. Punching down should be shunned.

49.12/ Scott Meyer's comic Basic Instructions is one of my all-time favorites. The comic below has the origin of one of my family's phrases: using "moo" for "M.O." as in "well, Fred interrupted constantly in the meeting, as is his moo." 

49.13/ It me.

49.14/ Step 1:

Step 2, from "do something!" twitter: "Biden doesn't care!"
Step 3:

Lesson: a non-corrupt DOJ acts slower than the 4 years of illegitimate governance conditioned people to expect.

49.15/ Thread about my trip to England three years ago which was at this time of year. I reminisce about what has changed.

49.16/ As I said back in May 2020, I didn't expect Trump (ym'sh) to die from COVID because - following the Bible's rules - the tyrant is kept alive as part of the curse/plague.


49.17/ While being a #Mets fan means living with humiliation more than necessary, having an opposing pitcher beat Tom Seaver's strikeout in our ballpark in the year of Tom's death would be just too much. Thank you to Pete Alonso for his heroic lunging hit.

49.18/ It's getting close to Shabbas, so #ShabbatShalom everyone. Stay safe.
