"What is it like?" - "It's awesome." - "Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down. Not in so many words. Executive summary, please."

yuvalpi Interesting results! "Get the fuck up" is undoubtedly grammatical, with the expletive following the main verb, whereas in this construction "get" functions as an auxiliary, but apparently it's not enough to make it completely ungrammatical.

ubiquity75 You can’t introduce yourself into a chain of social, cultural, economic and political factors, crunch numbers as “data,” then puke your findings out again.

random_walker This is the most interesting short piece I've ever read about gig work: nytimes.com/2018/08/18/opi…

theNeo42 Die Impressumspflicht für Freiberufler*innen, deren gewerbliche Anschrift ihrer Wohnanschrift entspricht, gehört abgeschafft/modifiziert. Denn wer sich z.B. antifaschistisch äußert, dessen Anschrift wird ganz schnell in rechtsextremen Kreisen verbreitet; es besteht Lebensgefahr.

The_Rabbit42 My tax proposal is simple: everyone has a Zelda-style wallet with a max capacity. Once you make idk $99,999,999 you're done. Can't hold anymore. The rest falls to the ground and other people can pick it up.

existentialcoms To say these people added value to the world and therefore "deserve" their billions is absurd. They subtracted value, an enormous amount of value, and stymied progress to seize control and extract wealth. Computers and the internet would be more advance if they had never existed.
