Once upon a time there was Diary, and similar were logs, journals, travelog and such forth. In our info age, it is called blogs by inept computing geeks. To keep in sync with humanity of fashionable business and nomenclature novelty, mine is called Periodic Dosage. This periodic, is bent on to inform the informed, and educate the educated, of all things and social things and ethological things.

Scripted vs Livestream Video
Mattew Yglesias liar
- Amazing, liar of extreme degree.
- This guy, Mattew Yglesias, gets his money from Bloomberg, an establisment media.
Mattew Yglesias, a notable media writer, posting pictures to ridicule other us politicians. this is what media circus means.
2023-05-18 Sam Altman is perhaps better named Lex Altman.
On social network sites, please no link to mainstream sites. Screenshot is better, because:
- solid record and highlight focus point.
- no promoting bad sites.
- no post-edit or deletion problem by bad sites.
- this analysis and show, by @ChanelRion at
- is the most spectacular.
- and summarizes my view of what i learned about DeSantis.
- Trump is headstrong and charismatic.
- DeSantis lacks tact, and young.
Videos of Ukraine War
- Footage of the ukraine war.
- (btw, i've seen a ton of them, weekly, since last 2022-05 or so.
- (the first few months not much vids)
- u wont see any of this if u do not spend time to dig (most not on twitter).
- cuz american culture no allow (us mainstream no allow.
- private such as YouTube twitter fb say some' about “community guidline”).
- (also ukrain sometimes in 2022 ban'd any citizen recording.) in usa mainstream, you have fake vids and tales (such as that bamming maternal hospital).
- also, u have to spend a lot time digging into each video on what its about.
- there r plenty fakes, and often, you don't know what ur seeing.
- the vids are anything goes, from jets, choppers, big guns, tanks, blowing or up, to people gouging eyes, or pile of corps with missing limps.
- or charr'd tochure.
- on twitter, there some accounts posting these vids.
- during jack dorsey's twitter, the pro-russian sides often get ban'd, while the pro american side survive.
- but even today, many of these vids are too bludy to be possible to live on twitter.
Dont let your brain be tainted
- Dont let your brain be tainted.
- There r mega info on twitter, some good, but giga craaap.
- u have to be very careful who u follow.
- what u see taints ya brain.
- Twitter is also a big bubble.
- if u no really try, u only see 1-side reality.
- and, it's not just about following opposite parties.
- cuz either way, 90% are fakenews.

Trump vs Ron DeSantis
Never knew Ron DeSantis (i live in Cali.) till today listened to him on twitter. not particularly impressed, i think he's just ok. I think Trump is better.
What impressed me about trump is that, AFTER his presidency, the entire Democratic Party and megarich+powerful are still after him, impeachment, jan 6, lawsuit, even with fbi raid. For over 2 years. Incredible. That shows me a lot fear of Trump.
yet, Trump is still on stage this and that daily. Incredible strong man he is, and a good man.
That “I want everybody to stop dying. Russians and Ukrainians.” on recent CNN, is just spectacular. The wit and the substance.
this is a sad thing and one of the problem of social networks. they all want you to use their, and only their, product. there's no way to export to another platform. and these companies, comes and go, get sold, etc, with your info.
If you really care for truth, all info should be equally ranked. That could be also a selling point for twitter. But simply punish the scammers, bots, liers, etc. So twitter is the best place to market your writings, for all platforms.
another thing inherent in so-called social network “platform” is that, they need to post everyday. Which means, all content are ephemeral, and same thing are repeated over a decade (eg gun law), no permanence, no coherence, no actual conversation. Just tweet, tweet, every day!
it all began with facebook markzukerbug skuum, and other become-rich “disruptive tech” startups in silicon valley. Zoomers grew up in this air, powerless, and became anon meme-posting zombies. No spine, no ethics, know nothing. Shill n grift, are the new words.

Western catch-phrase for peace is justice and democracy. China's catch-phrase is harmony and prosperity. Cultural Differences.
in today's internet age since about 2010, you can find details about every political event, controversial event, politician, or known persons, and make a good judgement. It's a matter of how much time you are willing to spend. Most American rather sip starbucks n click retweet.
currently it's fashionable to talk about declining birth rate as crisis. Elon Musk is particularly worried. I think there's no such crisis. As soon the man-made pill n condom r gone, we gonna have population explosion. It's in our genes.
making babies was never planned. it usually just happens. and is how humanity been for millions of years. the current 5 decades, of 'family plan', is an artificial creation, aided by pills, and american social construct. the latter especially in past decade.
u wonder, why some bright people say trite stuff on twitter. regularly posting basic college edu opinions. the reason is, websites since ~2010, u need to perennially post brainless things. By the design of social media. drama, grift, or play the popularity game.
