all these fucking ghouls in the pharma industry who are shitting their pants over the idea that vaccines should have their patents waved are killing people not just now, but in the future.
of course non western states deserve the vaccine and it should not be horded at all, and they will die without that vaccination as India is showing us right now. but the thing is that, concentrating the vaccines that do exist into one area, giving a tiny pittance out to show how generous you are, while having a tiny amount produced, will mean more people die. the larger gaps you have in society for the virus to exist, the more that virus has the ability to mutate, and more specifically, to mutate in such a way that will lead to the vaccine becoming useless.
IP rights mean less places produce vaccines, less vaccines means more dead NOW and in the long term as the virus mutates leaving us open to MORE covid waves. and these inhuman black hearted scum who run these companies are screaming that this needs to happen so they make money. this is what people mean with capitalism being so short sighted it will kill itself.
Oh, and my favourite: getting told to figure it out myself, instead of getting an answer. No shit, I was asking you because I couldn't reach total confidence on my own.
i mean if you think about it a lot of modern jobs are pointless shit that pollutes the environment and only exists to make even bigger piles of useless funbux without being meaningful to society. computers are not the only ones
Neurotypicals: Just to be absolutely clear, being ADHD is exactly like being a manic pixie dream girl. Autism is, in all its forms, exactly like Akira. Depression is indistinguishable from what you've seen in Evangelion. These are comprehensive descriptions, the gestalt of which empowers you according to the laws of god and man to recognize them in others with both swiftness and accuracy. Don't overthink it, if one 45-minute session is good enough for a psychiatrist, it's good enough for you.

"How ADHD people write VS how we have to write."
The author has this as their pinned tweet (the original, this is one with alt-text provided):
I might need to pin that myself, to prepare people who follow me because someone boosted a plush dragon into their TL and weren't prepared for how I actually post...
As you can see, I'm a dragon. Rar.
I hang out on the Spindizzy MUCK as "Kamare".
