Fun Fact

Only 26% are due to the inclusion of "please RT!" in the tweet.

Remember when taxpayers gave airlines billions, cheap or free, with the stipulation to keep staff on payroll? Then remember when airlines found workarounds, laid people off anyway? And, now, want to travel to see your family for a reasonable price? Hmmm... https://t.co/VuzkD6guf6

According to the nuns in Catholic school in suburban Chicago in the 1980s, you weren’t allowed communion if you committed a mortal sin and hadn’t been absolved in confession. And masturbation is a mortal sin. So basically none of you deserve communion.

Marqeta, an issuer of digital payment cards, provides services to purveyors of picks and shovels. In its upcoming IPO, it is seeking a valuation of up to $13 billion – quite an ask, @TheRealLSL says. https://t.co/ui8av5yc08

New fun game. Read a tech company’s prospectus and count how many words it takes to describe what the company does. For every word over 15, one tally goes in the “cons” column. See if it can dig out of the hole. https://t.co/gUWBuVPjsz
