    3. And I didn’t know pharmacist could put cocaine in topical creams. Yes. They gave me cocaine ointment for concussion induced headaches.

    It's a niche thing, but legal, and I've received such treatment myself.

    I have adverse reactions to lidocaine (i.e. hives and intense swelling) but not cocaine, so a couple of times when I've needed a topical anesthetic for an outpatient procedure they used a coca based cream or paste and it numbed like a mofo.

    Last I heard, Coca-cola still uses Coca leaf extract for flavoring, though obviously without the active ingredient for cocaine.

    Response to medications is super variable between people.

    On one end of the spectrum you have antibiotics which are nice and consistent. On the other you have psych meds.

    Antibiotics are very prone to causing allergic reactions in the susceptible. I'm not allergic to anything except an antibiotic.

    That's still the consistent end of the spectrum for medication though I think.

    Any medication that requires a prescription is not particularly consistent, but it helps that antibiotics target something less subjective than pain or mood

    I don't know about a regular cleaning but as someone who apparently has nerve clusters not quite in the right place in their mouth and has a body that flushes all of the novocaine away from their teeth and into the rest of their face in like 10-15 minutes? I fucking wish.

    Having a crown put on when the novocaine wear off halfway through a crown is a hell of an experience. That I've had three times >_<

    John Oliver's Last Week Tonight has a brilliant episode on SLAPP lawsuits: the type of frivolous anti-libel/slander litigation that big corporations and rich douche-canoes use to sue critics, protestors, and investigative journalists in an effort to intimidate and financially destroy them into silence (the type of litigation that Trump loves to curb freedom of speech and the press).



    The song and dance number at the end is just amazeballs. Give that man and his crew some (more) awards!

    Oh, and Bob Murray (the rich douche-canoe of this episode making a reappearance on the show) can go fuck himself.

    Part of the problem with SLAPP suits is that there's little accountability for the lawyers involved (which is a reoccurring issue when it comes to unethical legal behavior.) If filing a SLAPP suit that is caught out means that the lawyer doesn't get to be a lawyer for a while (or even for good), a lot fewer lawyers would be willing to sign on.

    It's an issue for frivolous copyright claims too. Lawful Masses on YouTube covers a lot of those, the host Leonard French being a copyright attorney by trade, and he always gets downright giddy when a copyright troll manages to get in trouble.

    They actually bring that up in the song and dance number (the "Bob Murray dips his balls in my hot dog water" part, I believe); he can't sue them again because their comedy show falls under the parody clause, basically, as ruled by the judge when Murray dropped his suit.

    Well, Murray will try. That’s both John’s point in the song and the piece: Murray is gonna try to silence John no matter how tame his piece is, because anything that’s not completely complimentary will get sued, so they said fuck it, come at me bro and play this in front of a judge, I dare you!

    They were impeached but not convicted/removed. Basically, the Chief Justice was MASSIVELY corrupt (the one Oliver joked about), and the others were more low level corrupt like abusing government vehicles and going to expensive lunches on the government's dime, so the House said "fuck it" and impeached the whole lot for lack of oversight and abusing money.

    Two resigned (including the one Oliver joked about, who was convicted in a criminal court), one was reprimanded, and an injunction blocked impeachment from proceeding against any of the others, but they were likely to be only reprimanded too.

    Murray Energy operates a coal mine in West Virginia, which is technically owned by "The Marshall County Coal Company". (This is done to limit liability. If somehow this company gets a huge fine, you can just shut down the company to stop it from reaching your real company.) "The Marshall County Coal Company" is one of the entities that sued HBO and John Oliver, which gives them standing, under the principle that defamation against the CEO is also defamation against their company. (HBO's lawyers were arguing that this wasn't good enough. I haven't been able to find the Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim, which should contain that argument. The judge did not rule on that, as the case was dismissed for other reasons.)

    I will also point out that this never got to trial. Essentially the judge read the Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim, said "Yeah, that sound about right", and dismissed the case with prejudice....and it only took eight months. Then it got appealed.

    Yeah the average seems incredibly high and confusing to me as someone who only buys new clothes when current ones don't fit or get damaged. Like I probably buy less than the average of the 80s in a given year. And certainly don't only wear a clothing item only 3 times.

    But that's averages for you, when you're an outlier.

    I remember some TED talk touting the fashion churn business model as "the answer" to media intellectual property issues (this was prior to the market flooding with streaming services). As if big budget studio movies with multi-year life cycles can just switch to a model where they knock out a Marvel movie for $1mil in a month to keep ahead of the various piracy hosting sites.

    My response was "turning one of the last bastions of unionised labour into low-quality sweatshops is not the answer to digital distribution disruption".

    Honestly, if you are shopping at these places all the time, I could believe it.

    The #1 thing with the clothing from fast fashion places is that it's CRAAAAAAAAP. That shit is garbage. You can feel it if you have enough experience with what good clothing feels like. It's cheap and it falls apart quickly. You pay way less for it but it's gonna fall apart or look shitty fairly quickly.

    So you combine a lack of durability with some people trying to stay trendy and I can see some serious churn in many people's wardrobes.

    Putting a pin in the philanthropy of billionaires.

    Now with a lot of these shows I get the need for comedy cause these are bitter pills to swallow. Yet it always feels like a weird thing of "hey these people are actively destructive but man what a bad haircut!"

    Sometimes it feels like these shows are just trying to get in cheap jokes and not foster change because hey, we just laughed at how silly this person despite them having an inordinate amount of control over our lives! We sure showed them!

    But then the alternative might just be outright despair?

    Or maybe I'm just mad at myself that I don't do more.
