“I didn’t expect much from San Marino. Even filming this episode I was a little annoyed with how little I could find worth telling.

But this story entertained me, and Kata edited it beautifully. I’m super happy with how it turned out. I hope you all enjoy!”

Sleep is Just Death Being Shy…

01) Sleep is Just Death Being Shy


You know why we should all be better to each other?…

I think the answers to this question, are inherently touched on in this video.

This is all we have…and it’s not going to matter, for the most part, once we are long gone.

…We shouldn’t try to make this experience of life a living hell for anyone, when this life is all they will honestly ever have.

“We Are Striking to Disrupt the System”: An Hour with 16-Year-Old Climate Activist Greta Thunberg…

01) “We Are Striking to Disrupt the System”: An Hour with 16-Year-Old Climate Activist Greta Thunberg


“In her first extended broadcast interview in the United States, we spend the hour with Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist who has inspired millions across the globe. Last year she launched a school strike for the climate, skipping school every Friday to stand in front of the Swedish parliament, demanding action to prevent catastrophic climate change. Her protest spread, quickly going global. Hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren around the globe have participated in their own local school strikes for the climate. Since her strike began in 2018, Greta has become a leading figure in the climate justice movement. She has joined protests across Europe. She has addressed world leaders at the U.N. climate talks in Poland and the European Union Parliament. She has even met the pope. And now she is in New York to join a global climate strike on September 20 and address the U.N. Climate Action Summit on September 23. Greta has refused to fly for years because of emissions, so she arrived here after a two-week transatlantic voyage aboard a zero-emissions racing yacht. She is also planning to attend the U.N. climate summit in Santiago, Chile, in December. Greta joined us Tuesday in our Democracy Now! studio.”

Free Steam Game: how do you Do It?…

01) Steam Game: how do you Do It?…

This has got to be one of the single most peculiar things I have ever found on Steam [https://store.steampowered.com/].

Strictly speaking, it’s not really a game. From what I’ve gathered, this is a short, silly program that serves as a catalyst for discussion about sex, for parents who have young/small children.

…A conversations starter, of sorts.

I played through it three times, hoping to get the ending where you get caught by the mother [she has a facial expression for it], but that never occurred…and this isn’t interesting enough to do a fourth time.

I’m sharing this because of it’s crazy novelty.
