transcript of LB, 160 words 

BOSS: Hi Caleb, I was just informed you weren't on the morning stand up call this morning. How come?

CALEB: Yeah dude I was asleep. I basically never join those

BOSS: Going forward, morning meetings are a requirement for employment at ______. I expect you to be on the next call tomorrow at 9AM, EST.

CALEB: Man that sucks for you guys, but I'm not an employee. My contract says nothing about required hours or daily meetings 😦

BOSS: You REALLY need an attitude adjustment! If you aren't on the next call, you're fired. Your choice.

CALEB: You can fire me if you want, but you guys have to pay me through the 18th of next month regardless so I'm definitely sleeping in tomorrow. Enjoy your meeting 👍

CALEB again: You guys really ought to read the contracts you have us sign sometime. Pretty wild stuff in there

BOSS: Please call me.


Being an independent contractor sucks for a lot of reasons, but it also affords you the unique ability to tell people to fuck off in delightful ways.

nobody wants to burn it all down but negligible nihilists anyway, but moderates will cast anything radical as inherently destructive anyway

re: “death to america” 

imo “death to america” doesn’t mean “burn it all down” because america isn’t you or me or the roads or supply lines. america is prisons and wage slavery and a commons eviscerated by greed; it is the spirit driving that immiseration and privation. the america i want to kill is the thing already strangling you. i want to seize infrastructure, expropriate and repurpose it for the good of all — not mindlessly destroy it. that narrative of destruction is itself propaganda.

Also, you should occasionally test yourself EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE SYMPTOMS.

If you have it you may develop Long COVID and it's important to start a diary of any symptoms you might develop later--and it will be super helpful to know if you actually had an infection and when; especially years from now when you need to fight with insurance to get treatment.

I don't understand why people are so short-sighted on this.

US peeps: reminder that you can order free COVID tests here:

Please do so even if you don't immediately need them. Help friends and family to order theirs.

The more people order, the more it will show the government that we need programs like this and that it should be ongoing.

Important: even if you can afford to buy COVID tests, order the free ones from the government.

Otherwise they'll use "lack of demand" as a fake argument to never do something like this again.
