The 'Most Diverse Congress' Is Really the Least Diverse
Since 1951, the portion of Congress considered moderate has declined from 60% to just 12%. … The result is a legislature full of loud, angry voices from the far left and the far right. Few are willing to compromise on anything, and pragmatic moderates either leave Congress or are left to witness the gridlock.
[....]
According to the 2018 Hidden Tribes study, two-thirds of Americans are part of the “Exhausted Majority,” a collection of citizens who do not belong to either end of the political spectrum. This large group is losing trust in our government and growing tired of politicians who refuse to find common ground and solve real problems. They feel justifiably unrepresented despite the supposed diversity of Congress. Two small groups, meanwhile, are dramatically over-represented. According to the study, only 8% of Americans are “progressive activists” and only 6% are “devoted conservatives,” yet these ideologues have exploited broken campaign finance and electoral systems to seize control of our federal legislative branch of government.

It's bad enough that the lack of standards and licensure lets any random choad call themselves a "software engineer", even if all they know how to do is run simple scripts somebody else wrote.

Yeah! Like using an angle grinder in short sleeves with no gloves. Probably not FR clothes either!
So, not much of a mechanic either.

Mind you, there's nothing wrong with being a performance artist. Her thing is not my personal cup of tea but I can see the appeal. Just don't confuse it with doing actual STEM stuff.

IME the mechanical/electrical/computer skills of artists vary widely. I've worked with some who are very good indeed. Others... not so much. For example, some years back I was asked by a kinetic sculptor to help him out with a series of sculptures built on treadle sewing machine bases - in order to make them work someone has to pedal them. They were very cool, but not working well, and it only took a moment to see why - he had attached a bike generator to the treadle and used it to power a motor in the sculpture. I pointed out that this is hugely inefficient and recommended driving the things directly with a belt. This turned out to be easy to retrofit and fixed the problem.

Interesting. I did not even know what upspeak was so I listened to some brit explain it to me on youtube. He did mention Californians sometimes use it and the Tesla girl seems to be from there as am I so that is why I did not even recognize it. It may be why after the explanation of what it is I still don't really hear it.

What's the female equivalent of an Incel? Oh, right... a Feminist.

Only in the pre-shooting spree manifestos of Elliot Rodger-- or that Christchurch idiot-- do you see demands for women to be rounded-up into government sex-farms... to compensate for the Incels' shortcomings. Or feverdreams of sorting & segregating entire nations by race or sex or religion.

But actual feminists are constantly launching actual grandiose policies-- to re-shape the world according to their demented whims.
