I’m going to make a controversial statement now and I hope that you’ll stay with me when I do:
I think we should improve society somewhat.
Before you grab your pitchforks or scream in madness, I should add the caveat that I don’t really actually know HOW to improve society, and am thus unlikely to do much of that.
But maybe, as with all things, we can get some ideas from Twitter.
10. More comprehensive home surveys
If my man centipede ain’t gonna be there then I ain’t gonna be there.

9. More pride in general
This is wholesome to the absolute max.

8. Better crisis management
We should have had some people think this through.
Sam being able to carry Frodo and not be effected by the ring means the ring doesn’t understand transitive properties so they could have just taped the ring to a mouse and then carried the mouse with no ill effects. Whole thing would have taken 20 minutes.

7. More historical preservation funding
I believe it was Winston Churchill who said “WAAAAAHHH.”

5. Stress breaks
Ah, the freelance artist’s constant struggle between unfulfilling work that doesn’t cause much stress and fulfilling work that gives you an ulcer.

4. More self-reflection
This is who we all are, on the inside.
when I leave the Zoom and my smile disappears I do feel like a serial killer

3. Robust conversations
It’s important to hear input from everyone.

2. The spread of knowledge
We need someone to take one for the team and snap a picture.

1. Criminal justice reform
