fact of the matter is, every billionaire would patent the sun if they could. The only difference between Montgomery Burns and a Bezos or a Musk is the cartoonishly evil laugh

ugh, I suggest students experiment with the @spotify api only to find out that it constantly 504's. Not my wisest move

Oh what do you know: transphobe lied about events to make his point seem reasonable. "But did you watch it" hurr hurr, fuck off.
