They covered it briefly, sort of:

The production and installation of solar technology, like other renewables, involves additional emissions and other forms of environmental impact, such as the pollution and deforestation caused by mining the required minerals.

It's not just rare earth metals, either, but all the other materials involved and the extraction and production processes involved for each one of those and all the energy that's required.

I'll have to check out the Todd May book. I need a more intro-y intro to Deleuze than what I have (The Works of Gilles Deleuze I by Jon Roffe). I started watching one of May's lecture series on Deleuze on YT, but it was moving a little slow and I'd rather just read and go at my own pace.

We can discuss that such a work exists and the implications of that. Nobody is promoting the work, encouraging people to read it for any other reason except to see that what is being alleged is true, or advocating for the ideas contained in it.

There's so much wrong with my house right now that needs fixing/cleaning/replacing, and I'm feeling overwhelmed and like it's too much to handle by myself. I don't have many DIY skills beyond just basic stuff.

I'm alone and feeling extremely lonely. I've felt like shit all day despite getting enough sleep, eating, drinking water, having caffeine, and getting a few things done.

And according to someone on reddit, apparently there's a prequel called the "Federationist Constitution" which essentially just replaces some words from the US constitution like 'state' with 'anarchism', but I can't find it.

I think I remember that. Same person that was talking about colonizing space or a different person?

It's also possible that in those surveys men claim to have had more partners than they've really had and women claim fewer.

I think you're too charitable. It's obscurantist bullshit, and it's not even worth trying to understand or engage with.

Edit: I don't mean to say that anything above my comprehension level is obscurantist. Sometimes, I have to admit that I'm not someone's intended audience or I lack the necessary foundational knowledge or raw intellect to understand an advanced concept.

Movies: I rewatch The Matrix every few years to see if it's still aging well. Other perennial favorites are The Graduate, The Departed, and Children of Men.

I've never rawatched an entire TV series twice. I did rewatch a good bit of S1 of Westwood with a friend who hadn't seen it yet.
