@turtlebirb Have you ever seen a _shaved_ bear? CW nightmare fuel.

@turtlebirb You wanna know how to inoculate yourself against that? Linguistics PhD program. You'll mutter stable sub-word segments to yourself constantly though.

If someone had the fortune to be able to save 100% of a six-figure salary (say, $100,000/year in this case), it would take 10 years to save up 1 million. It would take 10,000 years to save up 1 billion.

Billionaires should not exist. Not in a perfect world, and certainly not in our imperfect one.

@GwenfarsGarden GNH is a good idea, but real talk, Bhutan is a fairly oppressive monarchy that treats its ethnic minorities very badly, and that deploys the idea of GNH for public image purposes. (Obviously, yes, settler democracies are shitty too, just raising this to say "stay critical".)

I recently learned that New Zealand have expanded the range of indicators for how they measure their country's success. It's not just about the economy any more.

It's about current wellbeing, future wellbeing and their impact on other countries. That covers a huge range of stuff, including biodiversity, life expectancy, literacy, greenhouse gas emissions...everything from fish stocks to child poverty.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. Feminists have long said that GDP is a patriarchal measure because it ignores the value of women's unpaid work. It's also useless in so many other ways. Well done to New Zealand for coming up with a better way of measuring how your country is doing.

They're not the only country doing this, but they're one of very few trailblazers.

@turtlebirb it's no accident that the environment is similar.

@turtlebirb now I've got Wheat Kings in my head. That's some melancholy.
