Lately, I’ve been taking daily inspiration from NYT Minus Context, a Twitter account that strips sentences (or sometimes phrases) out of New York Times articles and tweets them without any contextual understanding. It’s like a nihilistic quote-a-day calendar.
On any given day, you might receive some sage advice.
You might encounter an existential issue you’d not previously considered.
Some universal truths that you’d never taken the time to notice might become abundantly clear.
Sometimes, NYT Minus Context offers observations for our Trumpian times.
Even when certain things seem obvious, it’s occasionally reassuring to know that there is still some semblance of order.
And on a tough day, vignettes can transport us to captivating worlds and provide much-needed escapism.
So thank you, NYT Minus Context. You’re doing the Lord’s work.
