"Ozimals did give rabbit owners a brief chance to save their rabbits. Before shutting down, they gave away items which make rabbits not need food – and leaves them sterile. Some rabbits will live on forever, the last of their kind." https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2017/05/19/second-life-ozimals-pet-rabbits-dying/

Microtopics:


Being old and knowing nothing.
Finding out that you can buy citric acid and put it in your drinking water.
Finding out that you can buy concrete and put it in your toilet.
The refreshing concrete toilet.
Regretting agreeing to do a thing you really enjoy.
Defeating procrastinating by discovering what you're afraid of and reframing it or interceding.
Worrying that you're incapable of surviving in a capitalist system.
Tracing every fear back to a fear of dying alone, like how every page on Wikipedia leads to Philosophy.
Wanting to do a thing but having no effective mechanism to prefer any given thing over any other and doing nothing.
Hearing syllables and then "ass" and pretending you understand.
Learning a word that you didn't know and then explaining it to other people.
Breaking your task into small steps and doing the first step.
Listening to your emotion and being like "what's your deal"
Self-acceptance helping when beating yourself up doesn't.
Instead of writing, taking copious notes and then skipping right to editing the notes into a completed text.
Laying out an outline and then finishing the essay by removing the bullet points.
Having an idea in each hand and holding two more in your left foot and trying to squinch them together into a linear series of thoughts.
Everything being related to everything else.
Giving people the tools they need to engage with topics.
A future-knowing genie who knows you're going to have pizza tonight.
Someone having done this topic already on a different podcast.
Being the genie you want to see in the world.
Causality seeming to flow in reverse.
Reassuring the genie that you're not the kind of person who takes two boxes.
The genie turning out to just be a guy with a rubber duck.
An odd Chris
