Uncle Danish saves the internet
Come for Cara Vandermey’s illustration, stay for Katie Heaney’s words:
I have a friend who is my evil clone who once spent the better part of an afternoon pseudo-trolling (the difference between trolling and pseudo-trolling is quite nuanced) a number of parody Twitter accounts because they didn’t like something she wrote about parody Twitter accounts and she thought that was silly. Some people found this amusing, and that power went to her head, her eyes starting to glow dark with menace. Things cooled down eventually, and the next day her dad (who is also my dad) called her and said, “Don’t get in pissing contests with people on the Internet.” She sort of protested, but not really, because she knew he was right. Or at least half-right.
If we perfect online dating, we won’t need robot lovers because the dating platform will roboticize us.
