    Forgot to do a challenge update.
    It is really hard to get out of bed right now.

    Feb 1st was a total bust. My car was in the shop so I got into work late and I had to teach and there were meetings and then I had to get my car and then I got a massive headache with one thing and another no writing got done.
    Feb 2nd I did a referee report.
    Feb 3rd I worked on the public face abstract of a big grant I will get if I get everything in in time. (Then later that day I did page proofs for an article.).
    Today I need to finish that abstract so I can get some feedback on it before Monday when I need to send it to the agency. (Tuesday we have to redo the budget.) Tomorrow I’m hoping to do another referee report, but we’ll see (though really I ought to be working on IRB approval).

    Our White House Press Secretary actually does not know what the word “misinformation” means, that’s wha.

      So many people are like, “he doesn’t know the onion” and, as you point out, no it is MUCH worse than that.

      I can’t tell if he doesn’t know what it means or if he’s like yes, this is all an elaborate joke. One of the articles linked about 1984 is similar to a previous week’s article on gaslighting, points out that saying the sun is the moon (to quote petruchio) over and over again until the listener is too worn out to argue is a classic bullying technique. They’re over the top ridiculous and open about it because their goal is to wear us down and show their dominance over us. Until we, too, are willing to say the sun is the moon.
