Fuck the Hugos.

"Science" is not the high ideal people here tend to believe it is, the bulk of published stuff is garbage, scientists lie all the time, and most so-called "research" is never verified much less challenged.

Social media exists primarily to make people who are essentially worthless do-nothing pieces of shit feel good about being worthless do-nothing pieces of shit.

Lowest common denominator always wins. Look at the recent GOP "debate" if you doubt it.
