I just finished binging the first 5 episodes of *Ted Lasso*. It’s so fricking good. I nearly cried.
I need to stop using this website like a personal journal, but whatever, here we go. I tend to conflate manipulating or impressing someone into liking me with loving them. This seems weird now that I realize that. When I say love, I mean of course a Biblical, self-sacrificial, love. *Ted Lasso* (TL) does a phenomenal job showing what it looks like to love someone, and for them to see that and to like you back. Ted gets to know someone, and then gives them what they need. (This is where the show is a comedy, see, because Ted is freakishly good at this, and the people are never ready for it.) I’m a very ends oriented person. Even if you say something like “love someone,” I ask, what does that mean? Loving someone is a means, a verb, not an end. I’ve asked people, years ago, pastors, “how do I love someone” and I got told that it’s doing nice thing for them or whatever. But I hear also, you should give anonymously and you can make a lot of money in CS. So one of my life’s goals is to commit a lot of time up front to making money, so that I can then donate it to charity. I fixated on the end of “helping people” and decided that the most efficient person-helped-per-hour strategy was to become a philanthropist. Of course, this was me as a child. I knew I was missing something. I figured out that I was missing friends, around 11th grade, and fixated on “friends” as the end. I was class president 12th grade. Everyone knew me. And it worked, right. I legitimately had more friends. (People get all worked up about “doing things for the right reasons.” One of my most controversial beliefs is that that’s BS. I’m ends oriented. If you donate $x to a church for your own self-esteem, your own image, you’ve done 2 things. You’ve committed a sin of pride, and you’ve made a charitable gift. One good thing, one bad thing. The good thing doesn’t go away, the charity still gets their money.) When I focused on getting friends, I got friends. But I was asking myself, “what can I do to get them to like me?” The key is to ask the other person about themselves first. To *understand them*. I fricking love understanding things. I don’t know why the idea of understanding people hasn’t come to me before. I’m normally like, I need to understand this person so that I can best make comments to get them to like me. Or, even more often, I need to understand humans so that humanity will like me. (When I say “like” here, btw, I mean a respect, regard, “think I’m a good person.” Not just “think I’m enjoyable to be around”, although that is included.) Ted tries to understand people first, then help them. I think I was skipping that. I’m a good listener, because I want to be nice and listening is a way to do that, but I never thought of listening in order to help someone. I have an anxiety, a phobia, of appearing presumptuous. I don’t want to assume people need my help. My solution should be to listen to their problems. But for some reason my solution to that was to make sure they had the ability to help themselves and then get out of the way. That’s the philanthropist philosophy. **I guess what I’m saying is that I always thought love was one step—help people. And it’s really 2 steps–understand people, then use that understanding to help them.** I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to think about this. I think about Buddy the elf. He “loves” people. He tries to do things for them constantly. But he doesn’t know what the heck is going on so he ends up making things worse. I hate that so much. I’m ends oriented. Buddy misses the understanding part, the listening part. Because sometimes people need you to hold their hand, and sometimes people need you to give them tools and leave. But that’s different for the person and the situation, and you have to understand someone first before you can know which. [X] Understand someone -> act such that they like me [X] Do things for people without understanding them -> make things worse [Checkmark] Understand people -> do something for them -> they like me

Just finished *Good Omens*. I gave it 3/5 stars. I took off a star for style, half a star for the ending, and half a star for blasphemy.
I've read only a short story by Pratchett, and *The Graveyard Book* by Gaiman. My three critiques blend together. The style of the book is very erratic, it reads like a bunch of short stories concatenated. Like the whole book is introducing the characters, and building up to something, but it feels like nothing actually advances the plot. The characters have very little agency. The human characters are written as powerless and ignorant, and the supernatural characters are written as mysterious and vague. There's a lot of passive voice. The humor is fine, but far from the funniest thing I've read. If it's supposed to be a comedy, then that would explain why I didn't enjoy it. It's definitely not boring. I understand why someone would like it a lot, or why it would receive critical acclaim. It does a lot of interesting things, ambitious things, and it pulls them off, for the most part. It just doesn't do the things that I would want it to do. The 4 horsemen are very well written; they're aloof, interesting, and terrifying. But they're not relatable, and I would prefer a book with relatable villains. The book is, in large part, written from the perspective of 2 side-characters. This is something most books don't do, because it's not easy. The problem here, is that the main (side) characters are well-developed and relatable, but they don't do anything. I don't care. Without going into spoilers, the ending is anti-climactic. There's no final battle, everyone just kind of stands in a circle and half of them talk. When *Good Omens* constantly refers to Christian terms ('angel', 'demon', etc), as well as the Bible, I end up with certain expectations. And the authors were constantly subverting those expectations. It just left me off guard for a majority of the book. They don't just re-define a few terms, they operate in a completely different system ('what if good wasn't actually good?!'), and it took me most of the book to realize that. It's not a whole-star issue, but it combines with the plot issue and the fact that the authors avoided saying anything outright. It's a good book. And in some ways, the 3 stars doesn't reflect that. The 3 stars reflects my enjoyment of it. I wouldn't re-read it.

I’m just a screwed up person.
In 6th grade the Chinese teacher would give a piece of candy to the student that got there first. She had these Asian candies with edible rice-paper around them, and I ran to class every time because I really wanted one. I was never first, and the one time I was she didn’t have the candy, and gave me like a lollipop instead. And I hate myself for not making it to class faster. And I hate her for having such an arbitrary and dumb reward system. I’m a screwed up person. I can’t take it. I pick things to care about, like getting that candy, and if I fail, it just destroys me. I say I’m not competitive, because I don’t have a lot of things that I care about winning. But if I try to win and I’m not good enough, that just destroys me. I actually didn’t get to class first. I actually don’t deserve the candy. I’m actually not good enough. I have absolutely no fear of losing. But the fear of not being good enough absolutely destroys me. It keeps me up at night, it paralyzes me to inaction during the day. I don’t want to be a bad person. I DON’T WANT TO BE A BAD PERSON. *am I a bad person?* Do I need to come to terms with the fact that I’m a bad person? Or do I need to come to terms with the fact that I’m not a bad person just because I make some mistakes?

People are all 'Chick-fil-A donated to "anti-LGBTQ" organizations' and you look into it and it's like, churches, that teach Christianity.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes, The Salvation Army, and Paul Anderson Youth Home, are the 3 Vox mentions. All 3 are Christian organizations, and all have expressed anti-LGBTQ beliefs. But they all have a mission statement that is not related to LBGTQ at all. They are charities which have a net-positive effect on the world, and yet refuse to hire members of the LBGTQ community. I initially read "anti-LGBTQ" as 'organizations that set out to hurt LGBTQ people' and so find these headlines to be very misleading. (I am referring to the last 5 years. In 2012 Chick-fil-A also donated food to a marriage seminar with a homophobic agenda?. In 2010 the owner donated $1000 to a group that promotes gay conversion therapy. There are several other incidents related to discriminatory hiring or homophobic statements by employees/leadership. But nothing else I found about the organizations in question acting on a homophobic agenda.) My conclusion here is not to defend Chick-fil-A. I'm trying to push back on statements calling for a boycott because of misconceptions about where Chick-fil-A's money goes. If Chick-fil-A was actively funding gay conversation therapy, I wouldn't eat there. But they're not.

To quickly recap some of my issues:
1. I know my problems are smaller than other people's; so I feel like it should be easy for me to deal with them. 2. I fault myself for having problems. Any problem (that was avoidable) also carries with it the weight of knowing that I wasn't good enough to avoid it. 3. I take criticism personally. Like 2, criticizing something I've made is both a criticism of the thing and a criticism of me, either that I haven't fixed it already or else that I wasn't smart enough to know that was a problem. (If I ask for criticism, I mean it. The biggest problem is when you criticize something I think is good. ) 4. I'm a perfectionist. 1 problem is 1 problem too many. As an example, I enjoy climbing. I bought climbing shoes, then scheduled myself to go climbing. When the time came, I couldn't find my climbing shoes. ('I don't have my climbing shoes' is the first problem). Then I fault myself for losing them ('I lost my climbing shoes' is the second problem). I now feel the need to fix both of these problems, first finding the shoes and second ensuring I never lose the shoes again. Since I'm a perfectionist, I can't go climbing without my shoes. And I now have a systemic problem ('I lose things'). Combing that problem with my perfectionism means that (if I can't fix the systematic problem) I should never go climbing again (because I can't guarantee I won't lose the climbing gear). But wait, my brain can apply 2) to the systemic problem as well. I never should have bought the shoes in the first place. If I knew I was going to lose them, buying them would be a bad idea. And we can keep going. I should never buy anything again. I shouldn't go climbing. etc. My brain does this all the fricking time. I hate it. (I wrote this last night at the same time as everything else but didn't post it.)

Like, Tumblr will have a bad take, but since there are actual words there, people can take the time to explain it. Someone on Twitter will
have a bad take and that's it. No explanation. So then it lives in my head rent free until I can figure out what the hell the person's reasoning is. This is one of my problems.

Feminists really be confused when men get offended by “all men are trash.” Like?
‘Obviously not all men are trash. It means that the patriarchy is bad’ Okay, can you say that? Because that’s not what you said. Sorry for assuming you meant what you said. I don’t give anyone else slack for this either. I take things literally. I will say what I mean. And people, especially leftists on the internet, *constantly* employ rhetoric which trips me up. It makes me angry. I want to have a discussion, to understand you, and I’m having to work in order to tear through the rhetoric to what you actually mean. “Eat the rich” is another example. Attacks on “the 1%.” These are not thought through, or else not meant to be taken literally. I had to ask a friend IRL if people were legitimately pushing for a violent revolution. (The vast majority of people, even on the internet, are not, to my knowledge. “Eat the rich” is a comment on the problems with wealth inequality, not a cry to actually eat people. “The 1%” I don’t think means 3,000,000 people, but views vary.) I’ve been accused before of being autistic, because I have a fixation with the literal meaning of words. And I’ve commented before how much I struggle with taking general insults personally. It makes me emotional. Say what you mean, and if you happen to insult a group that I’m a part of, don’t be surprised when I take it personally. Be ready to say it to my face. I want everyone to like me and if I have a behavior I need to change, let me know. Don’t insult half the population. I’m not a feminist.

Watched Wonder Woman 1984 tonight. Thoughts below the fold. (Mild spoilers)
There are a lot of things, that I would’ve done slightly differently, or that didn’t line up with what I expected. Overall, it was very good, at or above the MCU-superhero-movie average. I remember the first Wonder Woman being far above that, so my standards might have been too high. Perhaps the biggest was that the first Wonder Woman movie was really a war movie, super dark, and this one was was much lighter. It still dealt with serious themes, don’t get me wrong, but wasn’t nearly as gritty. I had to check that they were the same director, because I didn’t believe it. I actually really liked the villain, and his arc, but the final battle was anti-climactic. Throughout the movie the fight choreography was weird. Possibly just because it was different from the MCU melee style, but I don’t remember thinking about it on the first movie. Whereas this featured several fights that were just Wonder Woman pushing people over. And low-effort special effects of them sliding across the floor didn’t help either. I liked the time period set. Somehow it was super obvious about it without being annoying. Overall, quality super hero movie. I was hoping for something special, but I guess that’s on me.

Some people have called for boycotting Minecraft or pretending Minecraft was made by someone else. I wouldn’t go that far; I do respect Notch as a game developer. But I don’t agree with his Twitter, and I wouldn’t link to it with a target audience of children. So when Dream did that, and didn’t to my knowledge face any backlash for it, I was taken aback.

Liberals be like "I'm not a tankie by any means but i've yet to see substantial proof" that the CCP uses wide scale forced labor.
The full exchange (didn't fit in the first line): "the Chinese Communist Party is holding Uyghurs in concentration camps.” "I’m not a tankie by any means but i’ve yet to see substantial proof that this is happening on as wide a scale as claimed from a source that isnt Adrian Zenz" Like, okay, they're only using a little bit of forced labor? Oh, they shut down the re-educations camps when they claimed they did in 2019? You can claim that this is a conspiracy theory by the western media to promote capitalism, but I think that makes you a tankie.

The funny thing about Sci hub (and other forms of piracy) is that I have access to those papers, or could pay for them. But Sci Hub is so

Maybe he was super specifically talking about the "gamersriseup" culture, but it would have behooved him to specify that, rather than tossing all "memes about video games" under the bus. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/tom-scott-i-am-at-x

I give the collapse of society another generation.
Maybe 2. In particular, what I'm predicting is a dramatic crash in the amount of work humans are doing. I have the distinct impression that human beings are doing more work than we need to be. That 20-30% of man-hours that are payed to be worked are superfluous to human existence. For example, systems that are upgraded because they need to upgraded because they need to be the upgraded version. Not because the old version is bad. I'm not hating on this. I have a job that feels like this and I get paid and I go home happy. I don't know what form this will take. It's fundamentally a cultural issue. It may become culturally acceptable to work 32 hours a week instead of 40, or go to school until you're 16 and take a couple years off until you start working at 20. Or jobs could become significantly easier. Or unemployment, the amount of people living off their parents, could increase to 20%. Or we could have a full-on socialist revolution, who knows. Unfortunately, my data is wildly American-centric. This may only happen in America and not globally. The question "why haven't robots taken our jobs yet" is a hard one to answer. It's an incredibly weird and loaded question, and I'll need to re-examine it in the future.
