Is this a meme? It doesn't seem like one to me. Let's take a vote. Reply to this comment with MEME or NOT

This is not an article. I you have an article to post from a credible source, please do. Since this is not linking to an article we have to remove.

I know a lot of people who work from home, none of them do so from bed.

I recently realized it was taking way longer than normal to cook because front right is not doing so good.

I don't love front left, but he's a hard worker.

Cafeful, this is a guy famous for killing when feeling threatened by unarmed people.

I love how the guy making this joke can’t bring themselves to commit to the bit.

The fundamental tenet of a working democracy is voting. Everyone should have a vote and everyone should exercise their right to vote. To that end we have been seeing posts attempting to shame/mock or otherwise influence people not to vote. While this is a meme community, the idea that people shouldn’t vote goes against the fundamentals of a democracy by the people and for the people. To that end, we are adding a new rule that disallows posts that discourage or shame people from voting. This doesn’t mean that you can’t address how people vote, but even those who don’t agree with you and your political views should still vote. We all should. Everyone. Part of the reason we are in the mess we are in now is because participation in democracy is abysmal. Posts discouraging people from voting are essentially propaganda and will be removed.

PoliticalMemes is a community for having fun at the expense of our political hellscape we find ourselves in. People not voting is a big part of why.

We are taking feedback on this change, please let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments and why.

If the work is getting done, who the hell cares?

And record profits implies the work is getting done.

We saw VERY few nominations for books in December, and I know everyone is very busy with the season. We'll open nominations for January at the end of the month so be thinking about it.

INSTEAD... we are going to be reading some short stories for those that still want to have something to read together.

Let's read:

  • This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
  • The Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
  • The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster

If you have other suggestions we can throw them out here too. I'll create discussion for these three for now.

I know this is a busy month for a lot of us. So far we only have 2 nominations for the book club and one of them is mine. It seems like December might not be a great month for the book club. If we don't get a few more nominations I am going to cancel for December and push whatever nominations we get into nominations for January.

What do you guys think? Should we cancel book club for December and pick up in January or do you guys want to move forward (which will some more nominations for a vote to make sense).

Here's the nomination post for convenience. November Nominations

The time has come, friends, to nominate more reading for December! This post will collect nominations for the next few days (I'm thinking into the weekend) and then we'll have us a vote. Please don't hesitate to talk about why you want to share your pick and why you think it will be a good item for discussion.

Luna: New Moon by Ian McDonald

We had a lot of selections to choose from this month and it was pretty close race between Luna and Annihilation. I am very excited to experience this book and enjoy the discussion.

Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer

Annihilation is our second place selection for November. We decided to choose a second book for people who want to have a little more variety and want to do more than one book in a month. I am looking forward to the discussion on this one. I saw the movie when it came out but am really interested to experience the story in book form.

Alien/Aliens is a given for most people. I have been watching Event Horizon during the spooky season for years. What are some of your favorite books and movies with a horror/psychological thriller lean?
