Something I re-remember every three months and is insane every time: the real Amazon forest was named after the mythical Amazons

Just got in a huge fight with my friend because she refused to recognize the obvious fact that the raw shrimp emoji means "I say this with deep humility," what is wrong with her

Really wondering if all those small English-language outlets across Asia got duped into helping the PRC promote its capital and a new bike-sharing program

it will be released into a civilization that is even more garbage than ours, but they will still somehow be able to pull off smug self-satisfied ridicule of our lives and symbols

looooolol I love how the final dispatch, from Beijing, is about how the new commuter bikes "are going to make a commuter's life quite different"

Only take bird taxis. Birds. They will use a meter and they will know how to get there. I take Blue Bird, and wait a bit in line for the privilege. So do most Indonesians. But if you have a budget, or are really in a hurry / tired, take Silver Bird. Always Birds though. The end

1. When you come out, loads of men will be screaming "Taxi!" at you. Ignore them, or just insist you be directed to either Blue Bird or Silver Bird 2. Blue Bird is cheap and reliable ($15 or so to Central Jakarta) 3. Silver Bird a bit "nicer" but more importantly, less of a wait

Leaving this here for posterity, maybe it will show up on Google or something: How to take a taxi at the Jakarta international airport -

This year I got into a like 40-tweet discussion, about whether "neoliberalism" means anything, with a speechwriter for Tony Blair, wild times

This is why I unironically never want to "advance" above the level of writer / correspondent or editor (that actually edits) all "promotions" above that take you into a dark world. wacky and dark
