A Collection of Funny and Sad Absurdities
In honor of the famous two weeks to flatten our sanity.
This is a very short collection of absurdities, plus an excellent pre-COVID satire that could make your day. (I watched it five times.)
#1. Taking cold showers to stick it to the foreign tyrants.
#2. Elegant and cynical.
#3. Less elegant but also cynical because … what else seems to show
correlation not causation with heart attacks in healthy young people at an unusual rate? But we cannot talk about that, can we? Look, cold showers! Climate change!
#4. This 2009 Onion piece about the Kafka airport is beautiful.
Then again, what was a satire in 2009 is less of a satire in 2022….
#5. Sharing as food for thought.
(I was just about to send the post but then I saw this. I don’t know enough but there are studies showing possible reverse transcription, and gene editing is a “hot and promising” area of non-conspiratorial medicine. And, if this is true, it would not be the first time in history when a company knew that something unintended or undeclared were happening as a result of their product and kept hush. So, if you don’t mind losing your appetite, read right ahead. Warning though, you may need a cold shower after reading it!)
#6. In honor of the two weeks to flatten the world as we knew it, I feel like sharing the piece I wrote a couple of months ago, because they are lying.
