Please help me provide image descriptions if you can, for the sake of the blind and low vision. I have cognitive issues and image descriptions at times can be difficult for me. I really am doing my best here. I am not asking for any emotional or physical labour you do not wish to provide, of course.

Shaming me won't make the disability go away, btw. But helping add descriptions helps not just me, but the blind.

The word "stuckage" is not a word used to describe someone who is trapped in a minor predicament like locking their keys in their car. This knowledge gained at the usual cost.

How unemployed are fedi fascists to continuously monitor the global feed to reply to every pol post that triggers them?

The lady in the Starbucks logo is actually ZoΓ« Starbucks, creator of Starbucks. Also she's trans for some reason.

No matter the crisis: it's only about rich people's yacht money. ^

It should be taught in schools the impossibility of conceptualising large numbers. Few people know the true measure of a billion, for instance. All they know is "billionaires," not what that truly means.

"but they're not making more tests because greed"

Oh come on they want to sell more tests. Shortages mean they can't sell more tests. And they can't jack up the price too much because then the gov't actually will crack down and there'd be a PR disaster. So, yeah no, Socialism wouldn't solve the problem.

(Insert sarcastic comment here about ostensibly Socialist China making most of the COVID tests.)

Do you know how much a billion is besides a smartass answer like "1% of Jeff Bezos's wealth?" Just sayin'.

Like... this is not an artificial scarcity thing, this is a global pandemic, seven billion people need COVID tests, that is a truly staggering number of tests needed. At least 30+ billion tests. Few can even conceptualise a billion.

Like... yeah I get four per address feels like an insult but this is the freaking USPS, they can barely deliver the mail on time, I'm surprised there's four being given. Especially given the shortages.

Do people not realise there is a major shortage of COVID tests?

covid-19, usps tests, psa 

The order form opened early: special.usps.com/testkits
----
Residential households in the U.S. can order one set of 4 free at-home tests from USPS.com. Here’s what you need to know about your order:

- Limit of one order per residential address
- One order includes 4 individual rapid antigen COVID-19 tests
- Orders will ship free starting in late January

I think a balanced approach to COVID where we test everyone going into a public place, enforce social distancing and masks, and quarantine COVID patients until they get several negative tests, would be better than just shutting everything down, and would get numbers down. But no one will do that because "that's expensive" and people with COVID are still customers to Capitalism.
