I'm just so fucking tired of negativity
I spend a lot of time thinking and talking to people about media. I used to think I was above pop culture but then I grew up.
Anyway the common thread I see in most places is that nothing is ever good enough. You can't even be excited about things without someone telling you that you're wrong.
Recognize problematic elements, of course, but don't ignore everything that doesn't 100% match your worldview.

"It is now possible to capture images from the ground at visible wavelengths that are sharper than those from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope... To compensate for the blurring effect of the Earth’s atmosphere, four brilliant lasers project columns of intense orange light into the sky, creating artificial 'Laser Guide Stars'. Adaptive optics systems use the light from these “stars” to determine the turbulence and calculate corrections 1000 times per second." 🔭 https://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1824/

this is a general reminder that the US government is not known for its supreme efficiency when it comes to implement new policies, and that there are a bazillion legal hoops to jump through before anything actually happens
find these hoops, and bap 'em in the right direction
