Ooo, that tracks for sure, according to the comments I'm getting. Folks confirming "wealth means you're a good person who is smart and earned it" thinking is also common in S. America and S. Africa. twitter.com/Dwuff/status/1…
Sunk cost fallacy! "I can't leave this bad marriage, it's been 6 years!" "I can't quit this bad job, I've had it since 2005, I've put too much work in!" It's pointless! It's irrational! It's damaging! And it's a very human way to behave.
They eventually mutated into prosperity gospel! If you're rich, it's because my god wants you to be! 🙏🙏twitter.com/metalhead98906…z9c
Fun fact? This is the kind of thinking that keeps people not just in cults, but bad marriages, too. You probably know someone who let a terrible relationship fester far beyond the point they should have left, just so everyone who warned them wouldn't get an I told-you-so moment.
It feels really American, like other countries never get spoon-fed "wealth comes from hard work and is therefore earned fairly" rhetoric like we do. Poverty is equated with immorality in other places, but the wealth thing feels unique. Maybe because they had (or have) monarchs? twitter.com/JacobDavison_/…

Ego and sunk cost fallacy. They CAN'T be wrong about him, not after years of people telling them they were, because what would that mean about THEIR judgement? And ppl they don't like would be RIGHT?! No no, THEY'RE the ones right about this. There can be no other possibility. twitter.com/noneuclidgarf/…

Homie couldn't run a fucking lemonade stand. The Girl Scouts you bought your last round of Tagalongs from have better business sense. twitter.com/OrangeBac/stat…
"No no don't you see this is business, he first proposed $20 so $8 wouldn't seem that bad, simple psychology, and now the verification and the double verification are significant because-" Holy FUCK stop pretending he's competent, stop pretending he's a savvy businessman, STOP.

And these are actually down from what they might have been a couple years ago, before Apple/Android allowed you to easily opt out of app tracking. Like I've said, the most annoying thing about FB is how well advertising on it works.
Gonna share this, cuz why not. If you've been around for a bit, you know I've been talking about how organic virality has been throttled by social media companies in an effort to extract pay-for-play via ad buys. This is what that looks like: Iron Circus' post-ad-buy FB stats.

And we're done! THANKS FOLKS
BlockFi is Done. Bye bye Ponzi scam. We warned you. We called FTX a fraud years ago. You didn’t listen to the “FUD”.

DING! LEVEL UP! Just four days in, and the second Smut Peddler Double-Header has hit its ⭐️NINETEENTH⭐️ creator pay raise! We are so astonished by and grateful for your support, everyone! backerkit.com/c/iron-circus-…

We are just over $100 AWAY from our NINETEENTH creator pay raise on the record-breakin', name-takin' Smut Peddler Double Header. Have you seen how incredibly this project is doing?! backerkit.com/c/iron-circus-…
And it drops ONE DAY after Steam edition, now-featuring-actual-graphics DWARF FORTRESS?! God damn, good thing no one expects anyone to get anything done in December

Heya folks, boosting this for Larime, cuz Larime's cool and the work is so worthy! I don't boost KSes anymore as a general rule, but making an exception. Check out his work on love, self-image, and sex when you're disabled! twitter.com/XLarimeX/statu…

That is WILD, cuz it's literally never been an issue for me! I've worked with White Squirrel, Blackbox, and Easyship, and it's never even come up. twitter.com/XLarimeX/statu…
Ha ha ha the expectations for my selflessness/self-sacrifice are always much higher. No points for guessing why. Still remember being "called out" on tumblr years ago for not paying anthology creators BY THE HOUR. Y'know, the thing no one has ever done. Ever. twitter.com/lesmcclaine/st…
Some foreign postal services are just... insane. I, for example, no longer offer shipping ANYTHING into China. It just will not get to you, no matter what it is, and I will never get a reason why.
But hey, fun story: I was chatting with another creator who uses crowdfunding? Getting their work to Russian backers required 1) Hiring a driver in Germany 2) Giving him the 10 Russian backer rewards 3) Paying him to *hand-deliver those rewards* to the backers.
