I've been doom scrolling since the Doom was written on actual scrolls. Trust me, it keeps you busy almost as well as the study of mathematics or conspiracy theories.

I've been doomscrolling pretty much nonstop since mid-2016. I even paid Drew money to hook it directly to my veins.

All I am getting from this article is that the people who write editorials are paying attention for the first farking time in their lives.

Ars Technica wants Black lives to not matter and Putin to get away with it?

Stop reading the news is not a solution to the problems eroding mental health. It's like stopping Covid-19 testing to make Trump "feel" better. It doesn't actually help.

When Putin is dead and Black lives start mattering, then I'll do other things. Till then, deal with it.
