Instead of saving these to my hard drive, I'm putting them here now. Maybe someone might find them interesting?

To the people essentially saying that “wealth inequality has existed before” it has never been to this extent before. There have never been this many living in poverty. The rich have never been this absurdly rich before. Billionaires have only existed since last century. And there’s an entire genre of really shitty food which exists purely for the sake of being expensive.
Rich American douchebags and 21st century wealth inequality are putting people like Amenhotep III and Louis XIV to shame.
The Six Grandfathers, as they were:
Someday, the 21st century will be a cautionary tale to all of humanity about the absurdity and futility of mindless wealth acquisition. A time when billions were struggling with poverty and food insecurity, while an obnoxiously privileged few had so much wealth they were literally eating it to show off.
Glad to know I’m not as weird as I thought, sitting here at address #14
Why should anyone celebrate on July 4th? #AllCountriesMatter

When will the world's worst people stop internalising punchlines from 90s comedy shows??
It's exactly the same as the way "friend zone" was a comedy routine from the first series of Friends, and a bunch of dudes self-identified with it a little bit too much. Imagine basing your entire identity around a joke from a sitcom.
It's so wild to me that the "thin blue line" is an actual thing used in police propaganda. Because "The Thin Blue Line" is the name of a goofy 1990s British comedy about a bunch of bumbling police screwing things up and being clueless.
The phrase was supposed to be parody. The kind of thing only an arrogant, self righteous blowhard might say. And these clowns are playing it straight? Seriously?
So I was trying to find out when people first started using scales in kitchens to weigh ingredients, because I have a feeling that it may be relatively recent. All the cookbooks I've seen which are older than a few centuries don't seem to give measurements.
I did not find an answer yet. But I did find that the oldest known balance scales were found by archaeologists in the Indus Valley civilisation, dating back around 4400 years!
I like plants more than people 🌱 Probably not an actual supervillain. Probably.
