A woman in my friend group is due in mid April. I just saw her a couple weeks ago.

I can personally and definitively disprove her as I have been very heavily pregnant this whole entire time.

My grandma should chat with Naomi. She is waiting for the 5G to kill all us sheeple who lined up for vaccines, at which point she will be one of the only remaining living humans.

I mean, she’s 92 so good luck human race, but still. Any time now…

"I've seen people shooting up and pooping at the same time" haha that is not true they would be constipated by the opiates (I am very clever)

They might be shooting meth.......but then. I guess, the same would apply, since they would not be eating, thus, not shitting.......never mind....

Funny, my cousin went from 0 grandchildren to 4 grandchildren in the first 2 years of the pandemic

Ta, Robyn. I work in the South Bronx, where there are many, many "heavily" pregnant women. Naomi's just an asshole.

I want to see what happens when you put, "cross dressing explode," in an AI generator.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion... I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain... Time to die." --Roy Batty, lead android in "Bladerunner" (1982), also not Bad Naomi

I mean... it's not like covid caused a bunch of people to just die, or anything, or that more people work remotely, or any of those rational explanations...

“I've seen my city turn into an androgynous, drug fueled dystopia. I've seen people shooting up and pooping at the same time in the middle of 5th Ave and James. I've seen cross dressing explode. I haven't seen a pregnant woman in public since 2020,” said one very observant person."

That's what dystopian people do, you know. Just go around, pooping in the street, listening to raps and shooting all the jobs! /s

I'd love to know the mechanism by which formerly intelligent writers/ journalists switch to the Dark Side seemingly overnight. Is it greed? (We know the Far-Right has deep pockets.) Is it due to threats (That can get really frightening.) Do right-wing operatives slip them a mind-control drug?

It's probably more of a broken clock situation with the full on whackos. Weird cranks can and do make occasionally valid and insightful observations. And the rest of the time they don't...

Or they construct a critical frame of reference/analysis that used to produce useful critiques, but are partially based on some faulty premise, that over time magnifies errors in analysis to complete lunacy.

Beautifully stated.

Here is a heavily pregnant woman filmed in 2022. Baby was born October 2022 and I have the birth certificate to prove it. And I can personally testify that rush hour is still the same rush hour in St. Louis, MO.

I too have seen fewer cars in line in coffee shops and in stores. There was a guy who accidentally drove his car through a Burger King wall and took out an unoccupied booth but that was pre-covid.

If it was post-COVID, we'd all know why that booth was unoccupied.

I’ve worked in a more or less specialty retail store since August 2022. And every day or two we see pregnant people, particularly those that want to put a fetal heartbeat in a stuffed animal. Hell, even my old boss—all five foot nothing of her—was heavily pregnant, WITH TWINS, which was why she had to leave.

As for the drugs, though? Uh…a number of people are all too happy to just puff on the debbil’s lettuce at the bus stops here. I prefer to do that on my secluded balcony at home.

Did these people consider the fact that maybe they're seeing less people, partly due to the fact that anti vax and anti mask idiots straight up killed a bunch of their neighbors? If these people could still grasp irony, their heads would explode instantly.

Shooting up and pooping at the same time? Talk about the mother of all multitasking. 😳

Opiates cause constipation. I'm not buying it.

Now boofing and pooping at the same time? THAT shit (pun unintended) would really defy science. I mean...that's what I've heard...yeah, from rumors and stuff.

Some people are saying, huh? 😉
