I assume you don't have any objection to food.

DI has a point, but it is also true that I am known to actually eat food. That's why I have a kitchen. The problem with American fast food restaurant chains is that they inevitably attract the kind of lesser humans who just dump their garbage wherever it fucking suits their blunt minds. The proof's in the litter. Said lesser humans also are big fans of Red Bull, apparently.

This is especially true for rural areas as well, where in some places even electricity is non-existent.
So, that's why they're everywhere, as thick as fleas.

State Legislature.

I decided to drop out of city council race because UBI, a Living Wage, Paid Maternity Leave, Infrastructure Spending, Education Overhaul, etc. are more State stuff.

Also it's a smaller race and I formed a PAC that supports Disability Rights, UBI, A Living Wage, Paid Maternity Leave, Islamic Religious Freedom, Persecution Awareness, Racism Awareness, Infrastructure Spending, Youth and Latino turnout growth, with Jolthig and Kowani and plan to invite several NS'ers.


Do you need money? I could make a few large donations, provided my father approves (since he ultimately controls the figurative purse-strings).

That would be appreciated, but we'll have to talk on Discord about it.

I'm flying to DC soon to discuss with some Large Donors.

It used to be so that a new TET would grow several pages every hour, the current speed is still very much doable.

I can relate to the idea of free WiFi. It's all fun and good when you have your own mobile data, but there are circumstances, say, when you nearly used it up, or that your ISP is crapping out.

Time to hunt for free WiFi in this concrete jungle! Though sure, Singapore is good with this free WiFi thing. Getting a place or a comfortable spot to sit in a cafe... now that's another story!

I get what you mean - in Brunei, it was the same thing. You couldn't enter a restaurant without seeing those two words: f r e e w i f i.
And that would be a great way of getting people out to pray more often - then again, they may likely just stay round because of it.
