State of the Insanity

Tucson’s First Rage Room Is Now OPEN!
Wanna smash something? Tucson’s first and only rage room, The Breaking Point, is now open for business.  Customers to the Breaking Point can schedule time inside a room filled with smashable items like televisions, kitchen appliances, bottles, and anything else you can think of to destroy.
I have been too out of it.   I should have known this was a real thing now.  If it's here, it's everywhere.

I am just gonna suggest these tattooed people would be better off spending their money on dentistry.


Incel Memes Aren’t a Joke
One meme that clearly has taken hold in incel communities is “millimeters of bone,” in which side-by-side photos of similar-looking men run alongside the caption “The difference between Chad and non-Chad (incel) is literally a few millimeters of bone.”
In incel jargon, a Chad is a strong, well-liked, testosterone-loaded man who has sex with a disproportionate number of women. Incels resent women for choosing to sleep with Chads rather than non-Chads like themselves. Chins and jaws, the most enhanced facial features in the millimeters of bone meme, are particular obsessions of many incel communities, as members believe women are biologically drawn to men with prominent ones, while guys with weak chins and slight overbites are doomed to lives of solitude.

Yes, you got the location right.  Many white people have underdeveloped lower jaws.  But your lack of social success is not about bone, it's the oropharyngeal microbial activity and nerve dysfunction that causes your problems, boys...
Turns you into whiners.
