a lie of omission.
they do what you tell them to do, while also doing what a million other people over the past 40 years told them to do to

This may be obvious but stands out for me after changing careers some years ago from corporate to academic. In the corporate sphere, I studied competitors, did CI, but would never have reached out to openly discuss operations, strategies, etc. Yesterday a librarian from a nearby university reached out to me to discuss reference services—and I've done similar things to other libraries. I really appreciate being able to have such open, helpful conversations across institutions.
The boy made the AAA ice hockey team for the third year! Now that they've leveled up to bantams, the skater skill tree includes body checking. I'm not sure what goalies get... maybe extra HP?
Lewis is My based Friend. They give me electrons. What a cool dude.

Rockets vs Timberwolves - This could go either way, honestly. Science vs nature.
This proves that there are a bunch of people with a lot of disposable income who are willing to trade cash for immersive drinking experiences.
The secret cinema YouTube channel is great. I can't believe they actually built a scale 1950s town for a back to the future screening.
