Some say the world will end in fire or ice, some say in a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens.

this is true in the most pedantic sense there is, however, such a thing as a clearing price in the market for labor that makes many popular business models uneconomic and inflates the prices of consumer goods and services
there is no such thing as a "labor shortage". there is only an unwillingness to raise wages

since that's kind of a mouthful, most people will just say "labor shortage" instead

question: for cell plans that have "unlimited data" but limited "hotspot data", and also allow you to use your own device, how do they propose to enforce the hotspot data limit? question not wholly theoretical

left unasked and unanswered is the question, "from what legislative authority do the FDA presume to impose conditions on the sales of personal electronic devices?" or, "how do they justify imposing this roadblock for decades?"
is it a sort of professional courtesy between government-created TLAs that led NPR to portray the FDA sympathetically in this headline – "The FDA wants you to be able to buy a hearing aid without a prescription"? … npr.org/2021/10/19/104730355…

If you’ve ever wondered how big political accounts start tweeting the same exact message at the same exact time, this explains it.

Yup 100%. Here's a sample of the spreadsheet they use to coordinate their posts. People need to realize that their posts have zero impact on politics & accomplish nothing in the real world. Their tweets only accomplish fame & gain for them.

of course, the real motive here isn't anyone's health; the real motive is because the public health people can't abide there existing a relict population who doesn't abide by their "recommendations"
