C’est épuisant de binger les archives d’un podcast de live play dont les joueurs se voient tous les deux mois et oublient complètement ce qui s’est passé d’un épisode à l’autre.

On imagine que les gens qui sont arrivés à QAnon ont quelque chose de fondamentalement cassé en eux. C’est faux. Ils ont juste eu des années de ce type de régime médiatique, doublé d’une diabolisation de quiconque critiquait cette rhétorique.

sadly we must turn off the ability to QT people in order to kill the awful meme format that’s just a chain of bad QTs with a banal prompt

@AllyFogg:

How do we alleviate stress? We persuade ourselves that events in fact are under our control. If we choose to believe that bad things happen to people because of their choices or personal failings, we can live stress-free under the delusion that bad things won’t happen to us.
