I loathe clickbait.

I just saw a link to an article. The title was "George Bush Appointed Federal Judge Was Just Arrested And The Reason Will Make You Sick."

I refuse to click on any article when the article doesn't tell you the essential thing that happened (what did the judge do?) and when it tells mw how I'm going to feel (apparently I'm going to be sick in this case, but often I'm just "not going to believe" what happened or am told that "Number 5 will make my jaw drop"). I'd rather we just ignored clickbait so that we encouraged it to go back to the manipulative marketing sewer from which it crawled.

Oh, and there's also a hyphen missing between "Bush" and "Appointed."

"Yesterday, I flew over downtown San Francisco. I swooped past the Transamerica Pyramid, taking care not to get speared, and winged it out towards the water. A heavy fog covered the bay, as usual, so I decided to head back into the city. I dove sharply, and the wind started whipping across my face. I slipped under the Bay Bridge, banked hard and promptly slammed into a warehouse. The wind died, and my screen went black."

The Oculus Rift made me believe I could fly:

"Neither the love of self — what educators call self-respect — nor love of others — responsibility and love for his fellow man — can ever be taught in our present educational system. Teachers are too busy “managing” to be “creating.” As Albert Einstein said, “It is nothing short of a miracle that instruction today has not strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry. For this delicate little plant lies mostly in need of freedom without which it will fall into rack and ruin and die without fail.”

So the individual, now fully grown, leaves our schools confused, lonely, alienated, lost, angry, but with a mind full of isolated, meaningless facts which together are laughingly called an education. He knows neither who he is, where he is or how he got there. He has no concept of where he’s going, how to arrive there nor what he’ll do when he gets there. He has no idea what he has, what he wants, nor how to develop it. In essence, he’s a type of robot — old before his time, living in the past, confused by the present, frightened by the future, much like the teachers who made him.

Nowhere along the way has he been directly exposed to love as a learned phenomenon. What he has learned of love he has come upon indirectly, by chance or by trial and error. His greatest exposure and often his only teaching has been through the commercial mass media which has always exploited love for its own ends."

“If when I’m dead I am as if I never had been, then that’s the way I was before I was born, and couldn’t I happen again? Isn’t it incredible that out of the nothing, here you are…Why, it’s astonishing! You know you’re going to die, and the death of each one of us now is as certain as it would be if we were going to die five minutes from now. Regard yourself as dead already so that you have nothing to lose.”
—Alan Watts
