Does it have anything to do with birds aren't real?

"I understand the frustration with how COVID was handled. I understand the lack of trust in the media today. I get it. But this is real."

It was always real, I don't understand the lack of trust in the media. If you broaden "media" to include tumblr and fw:fw:fw: emails that cite no one and end up on fox news then fine, I can see it... But perhaps we as a culture shouldn't consider them media, and punish outlets that routinely spray lies and Russian propaganda.

One of my pet peeves has always been blaming "the media" because it's such a broad, nebulous term. It can mean virtually anything you want it to.

I agree.  But. We jailed a kid for a sarcastic comment.  So cats out of the bag.

Maybe we should have different domains?
One for banking and stuff like that.
One for social media.
And one for news.
And www for trash 🗑 🙃 like fark j/k 😆

They somehow felt that they could not just use a stock photo of a chicken?

I was at the shop getting my car fixed and a woman asked if the bottled naturally flavored water was alkaline.

They were all citrus flavors so I told her that if they are naturally flavored from highly acidic fruit, they are likely to be acidic as well.

She said not the lemon one, because lemons turn alkaline when they are in your body.

WTF?

Are people getting dumber?

They quoted the chicken so they're required by law to provide an accurate photo

This is actually a thing among the naturopathy crowd.   They believe one of the things that causes illness is not "balancing" alkaline and acidic foods.   You go get a test, and the "doctor" tells you whether you need to consume more of one or the other, but that some things turn from one into the other when you eat/drink them.

Dunning-Kruger had always existed. She heard some buzzwords, but doesn't know the science behind them. Doesn't stop her from repeating the buzzwords.

Just answer "yes" to such moronic questions. The moron won't be hurt by it.

Also, I'm always seeing all kinds of dead birds, every single one was meat and guts. Not metal parts.

No, the irony appears to be that there never was a Dunning-Kruger effect. The researchers had more confidence in their hypothesis than seems to have been warranted. The evidence for it doesn't hold up to scrutiny.

It makes for a nice meme, although I generally figure that anyone who uses it doesn't know what it means, anyway.

I was at my friend's house and his wife started making a frozen pizza and she started putting it in the oven and it still had the cardboard on it. I asked if she was gonna take it off and she said why? It's the free pan they give you to cook it on.

I ate the cardboard enhanced pizza, by the way. It was nice.

Sort of a woody finish, though.

Birds are real.  That's why they are killing them off and replacing them with fake birds.  It's the Great Bird Replacement Theory.

I want to watch the gears grind in one of those "birds aren't real" folk over a chicken dinner. That could be fun.

On second thought, they'd probably just claim chickens aren't birds, then plug their ears and "lalala" through the rest of it.

This confusion will be cleared up this Sunday. We will gather at the grassy knoll in Dallas, and at 2:00 pm, Col. Sanders will clear everything up. The Colonel has been in hiding underground since faking his death to avoid the Hillary hit squads.

There is actually a bit of truth to this.

Citrus (probably real juice, not lime-flavored La Croix) increases the level of citrate in your body, which actually does make things like your urine less acidic.

Probably not relevant unless you have gout or uric acid kidney stones though.

But they're totally cool with killing healthy animals?

Back before they were all replaced with government drones I saw some too. My office was high enough that we could see birds nesting on top of shorter buildings across the street.
