I wish I could transfer my focus for chess onto things that actually matter.

Telling parents who have been forced into a terrible position by Ford's refusal to fund #SmallerSaferClasses that they should send their children to private school is truly appalling. Mr. Ford, is your Ontario for everyone, or just your rich, connected friends? #SmallerIsSafer https://t.co/tSfzsLr9av

"Oh you want your kids to be safe? Have you considered paying for that?" I hate people. https://t.co/j0p3hwUv9G

Search "Kavanaugh" on Twitter to see what the Right thinks. Basically, they are all saying "Remember what the Left did to Kavanaugh".

Holy crap, there really be different twitters out there https://t.co/wcmFix5odb

I haven't read 1984 in quite some time, but I'm reminded of that part where they all just get upset for part of the day. That's twitter. That's facebook. That's reddit.

My therapist has told me to avoid the news, and you know what I'm going to broadly interpret that to mean any avenue of communication in which I am informed of world events.

There is a lot to be rightfully upset about. But sometimes, to me twitter is just a machine for generating additional outrage. Spinning our wheels without getting anywhere. I need to mute some people. Not because I disagree or don't like you, but because I need some space.

"somehow the Democrats found themselves speaking up in defense of the 2016 Mitch McConnell Rule, against the 2020 Mitch McConnell Rule...even though both rules were made up strictly and exclusively to serve the interests of Mitch McConnell." https://t.co/DlBVs3BwIJ

New blog post: P-hacking and optional stopping have been judged violations of scientific integrity. https://t.co/tvSwJDVnHK Where I compare changing perceptions of p-hacking with changing perceptions of smoking (and yes, I used to smoke). https://t.co/qc4HGPizmf

Tonight, in an attempt to stave off having a beer, I've had tea, coffee, food, a shower, and a session of meditation. Given the circumstances, maybe I deserve that beer.

The American people will choose the next president who in turn will nominate the next Supreme Court justice. #LetThePeopleDecide

I've never wanted to get to November faster in my life.
