- The 2020 U.S. census massively undercounted this year, and the misses in Hispanic, black, and Native American demographics were 2-3x more impacted than white and Asian groups. These numbers are getting adjusted, and the errors are similar to the errors in the 2010 census as well, but add it to the list of "things that disproportionately impact minority groups by default".
- Someone modded Sifu in the best way possible.
- My lizard brain is no match for infinite scroll
