Einstein & Wiesel
Although I have lost patience with people who still only talk -and post- exclusively about THEMSELVES, for the sake of mental health we all still need to have a little fun sometimes. To that end I am sharing this cute little quiz I found (pre-filled out) online.
“Come on….someone do this with me. Let’s have some fun, take a break from negativity and learn about each other.
1. Who are you named after?
There is a literally fascist administration in office in the United States.
2. Last time you cried?
Resist it, unfailingly, with all your strength.
3. Soda or water?
A five year old was detained for hours at Dulles and reportedly handcuffed, and the White House press secretary defended this. Defended this.
4. What is your favorite lunch meat?
Iraqis who assisted American troops at great risk to themselves and their families, and who are the most vetted refugees, were turned away from their flights they’ve waited years for, and detained at airports like criminals.
5. Longest relationship?
Donate to the ACLU and other organizations who will defend our civil liberties.
6. Do you still have your tonsils?
Soon, we won’t have the courts to depend on, either.
7. Would you bungee jump?
Get your news from anywhere but social media and cable talk shows; the BBC and The Guardian do good work, as do the LA Times, the Washington Post, and the New York Times.
8. How many years at current job?
Stand up for minorities and women’s health and freedom of the press.
9. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Make sure to take care of your mental health in this tumultuous and stressful time.
10. Roller coasters?
Punching unapologetic actual Nazis is illegal and you definitely should do it every chance you get.
11. Favorite ice cream?
Many of the Democrats are folding. Keep the heat on them, keep writing and calling them.
12. Favorite thing to do?
This is not normal. Don’t act like it is. You can’t ignore this.
13. Football or baseball?
Steve Bannon has said himself he is a Leninist who wants to destroy and remake society, and he is manipulating the POTUS to sow chaos as a pretext for crushing civil liberties and seizing permanent power.
14. Leggings or Jeans?
Install the Signal app to make sure your messages are end-to-end encrypted and stop using FB messenger, Google Voice/Hangouts, and texting, which are easy to spy on. It’s incredibly easy to install and setup, and you won’t even notice it once you’re done. Remember that unless both parties are using it, it won’t be secure.
15. What are you listening to?
Keep up with everything going on, do not let up.
16. Favorite Color?
Prepare for the increased repression of American citizens. It is coming.
Keep in mind that he is constantly lying to us. Do not believe anything he says. If he says the sky is blue, look up and check it yourself, or save time and assume that he’s lying.
They still haven’t fixed the pipes in Flint, Michigan.
19. Hair color?
Stop being complicit.
20. Eye color?
Stop being obedient.
21. Favorite to eat?
Stop fooling yourself that you won’t have to fight somehow.
22. Scary movies or happy endings?
Stop being scared. Stand up for what you believe in.
23. Android or iPhone?
America is a country of immigrants. We are better because of our diversity.
24. Chevy, Ford or Buick?
We will not re-center the white working class at the expense of minorities, women, and LGBTQ+ in the hopes of poaching voters. Elevate people less privileged than you who are being actively repressed.
25. Favorite holiday?
It will get worse. You are stronger than you think, and you can take it.
26. Beer or wine?
You have to. We don’t have any other options.
27. Night owl or morning?
Your children and grandchildren will remember you by what you did during these years.
28. Favorite day of the week?
Dissent is American. *All* enemies, foreign *and domestic.*
(I can’t take credit for this, even this part. I cut and pasted it all because I love it so much.)
