“A weird authoritarian co-op.” ☭

We’re powering through the final week of our carb fast-induced brain fog, and we’re covering lots of meaty topics: U.S. women soccer players getting PAID, our immune systems going to vaccine school, how simple physics alleviates a common flying phobia, how the Russian invasion of Ukraine is relevant to the survival of democracy on Earth, and the benefit of becoming a master of pain (or is it “Master of Pain?” … sounds like a cartoon villain … or a WWE wrestler … maybe both. What’s even the difference. Can we have sugar yet?).
