My immediate genuine reaction of "omg no I love bananas" shows 3 things: 1) I really love bananas a lot 2) enough to "worry" about this simply by the headline 3) which I think was the first thing to really slip by my hardened shell of immediate skepticism in a while, lol...I know lots of shit is going really bad in the world, but it's not every day I fear for my lifestyle...

If it's true, oh well, I've heard humans have similar DNA to bananas so they'll probably just start harvesting us to create 'nanas ;-P

PS I'm not sharing my banana nice cream recipes because then you guys will eat all my bananas

PPS jk -- freeze chunked (and then mashed in the bag for best results) bananas for like a day or less and then experiment by blending in (or if you're me just lazily smooshing in) delicious milks like protein nutmilk and powders like powdered pb or strawb carnation, or whatever tf makes you happy because this treat will!!!

Interesting... But, I kinda found this part weird:

"62% of the survey respondents indicated an overheating economy tied with the tightening of the Federal Reserve interest rates as reasons things will get worse."

Mkay a) "overheating econony"? What even is that lol, describing it that way makes it sound obviously bad... but, it just sounds like a shitty excuse...the capitalists whining about too much consuming? Ok....

And, b) this feels meant to both discourage change/approval of change (here re: the fed) and discourage attention to the fed's interest rates... while also kinda acknowledging recessions are inevitable overall

I agree, so weird, this article was a TRIP! In all openness, I had to skim the last part to save myself. I'm amazed at the terribleness... My initial reaction is "yyeeeahh suuure ok prettyboy" (and I can say that because I'm a girl and I do think he's pretty in that pic lol mkay irrelevant).

And then, as I was reading, a new-to-me idea occurred... I agree it seems like disinformation/propaganda... this piece seemed heavily persuasive and seemed to be written for a younger audience... I'm 28, and the "author" looks close enough to my age, but this crapola was obviously written for teens/early 20s... especially with the uncertainty he's always oozing...I call bs but I still learned something!

Edit: added "suuure" to further emphasize sarcasm

Nice, and thank you, your comment totally just reminded me that I was supposed to finally get, after tracking down, that whole CD from interlibrary loan like almost 3 years ago now haha, and I don't even remember what all happened with that, so putting that album on my radar again, thanks! The more I think about it, I must have failed to pick it up within the library's time frame...lol, if one would have told Childhood Me that Grown Up Me would not only be even more dorky greedy with getting stuff from the library than kid me, but alsoooo be just as irresponsible and chronically late-fee-addled as ever... then I miiight have laughed at that, but it is apparently all true! :) Yeah, I freaking love libraries, and dancehall reggae while we're on that subject, lol.

Also did you look into Buju's story too? I just think it's weird and interesting and... maybe fishy/sketchy? But not solely due to him - is my impression... granted, I've only done a little research, not a ton.

I'm not really sure what to feel about the alert thing either, except this: that weird line in the article I read that, to me, was too vague in stating something along the lines of "if circumstances arise" it will be postponed?? What?

This morning I had a creepy feeling for a sec while thinking/talking about that and the line that stuck with me (obviously the sentiment I took, not the exact wording), and in that creepy moment I was basically like "omg, what if... there's an event?!" Which I DO NOT like even thinking OR saying here...ugh.

And then there was that workplace shooting. Coincidence likely but.... not cool.

“I feel like the rate hikes are a good thing for the economy and markets. The longer-term rates have not risen as much as the shorter-term rates, which means CD and short-term investors really experienced a raise in the income they receive from savings.”

To me this sounds like it's benefiting the "new middle class" of 6 figure incomes... and people with savings and investors, that's privileged people too!

My first question was 'how's this gonna fuck us' lol, and soo, is it gonna help everyone default /default worse/get screwed on student loans primarily, and other debt, and then let the Fed need bailout for those loans that don't come back that they're counting on?? Kinda?

Aaand lastly, there it is: ...The primary cost to consumers is that borrowing money is more expensive and will continue to become more expensive if the Fed continues to increase rates.”

And yet, to make any money, you basically HAVE to get loans... thanks, Fed, idek anymore.
