I'm not the first to bitch about this I'm sure, so please excuse the rant if it's a tired subject. I just wanted to get it off my chest.

I get the impression that a lot of Internet Leftists are highly privileged and feel entitled to the notion that they're making a difference in the world, but don't actually want to risk inconveniencing themselves in any way. They would rather pat themselves on the back for "doing an activism" by dogpiling some ignorant person on Twitter than do anything they actually enjoy, let alone work on themselves as people.

I've met some folks like this at a local org recently, and they're just as insufferable in-person. They're the types who'd call you ableist for suggesting they log-off and go outside.

I guess what I'm whining about is Performative Libshit Red-and-Black-Flag Edition. These terminally-online people need to find some hobbies. It's leaking into real-life and it's gross. Social media is a curse.

I have a refurbished Baratza Encore grinder. I either make cold brew in a French press, or I use a moka pot (if I forgot to set up the former).

The French press I've got will make enough cold brew for a couple of days.
