fucked up how centrist was co-opted as a political ideology, erasing the identity of my fellow hollow earth dwelling lizardmen

Local bushfire is seemingly moving in every direction at once which is obviously good and normal.

@kypros1992 "In the following clip from CTC 7 News, Canberra of 20 September 1974, journalist Jenny Hill interviews a woman about the cessation of radio and TV licences. The interviewee is outraged at the unfairness in the decision: those who have paid their annual licences were not getting reimbursed, yet those who had not paid or had been issued a summons for non-payment were receiving absolution. She concludes angrily that ‘it just doesn’t pay to be honest’."

At this point climate change denial should be a human rights violation that can see you strung up at the ICC. Burn the entire political and journalistic class that abjectly failed.

‘Study, work hard, get ahead in life’, and other lies. Why would anyone work for a living?

There was something nice about 'shove big chunky floppy into drive, type DIR', though. A comforting sense of physicality and location. You knew where your data was and it was an artifact in front of you, in a disk box on your desk.

I suppose a USB key is similar, but Mobile/Cloud isn't. Lots of invisible silos with all your data scattered to the winds.

Saying you're apolitical is another way of saying your position in society is so comfortable and safe that you choose not to question whether a better world could exist for those that are less fortunate than you. It's just snappier, and thus is a more efficient way of explaining you aren't woke.

my sister-in-law wanted to make a toy for her 2 year old nephew who likes turning on and off light switches so I helped her learn to solder and we put together this box with 5 different switches and a bunch of different LEDs mounted on it.

the switches all interact in different ways, and some of the LEDs are RGB so you can play with it for several minutes before you figure out how everything works together.

I think the kid is going to love it.

It’s pretty SPOOKY that since 2007 not only were the major institutions responsible for international banking and financial regulation not held to account, but the potential for another global crisis of lending has increased, with the potential for a crushing recession and general economic collapse

@geordie also @rht_ebooks and I both enjoy the sheer on-brandedness that is Dick Cheney in an Airstream caravan bolted into a C-17 called the 'Spirit of Strom Thurmond'.

Q. Did the C-17 become 'Spirit of Strom Thurmond' as a congressional suckup on the part of the USAF, or does any plane Dick Cheney gets into become automatically SoST in the way any plane the President flies in is AF1? We will never know I think
