I'm Geordie. That's my name, I'm not "a geordie" because if that was my name and a thing I was it'd be really weird. Late 30s, cishet (he/him), love basketball and go to all Sydney Kings home games with my wife and 7 year old kid. I live in the North Shore are of Sydney in Australia. I love cooking, especially for my family, and I work in cloud tech. I joined Mastodon to have a more chill experience with more real people.

If you try to convince me that adblocking is against my own interests in the way that many have before, what you might not fully understand is that I *do not care* if the entire commercial web goes belly-up. It'll be a blessing if it ever does, and couldn't happen too soon.
This is not just me getting tired of annoying ads, this is a rational and premeditated decision that I'm not going back on. Fuck advertising.

You have an amazing, infectious energy and I want to really call it out and thank you.
I have friends, peers, and readers on bird site who are like “please come back!”
Fine, I check in again. And it’s still nothing but a waking nightmare of people yelling about politics and daily horrors.
I’m not trying to avoid or deny current events or the awful problems and legacy of my country. I’m trying to get active and do my part.
But I also can’t eat, sleep, and breathe this stuff every second of the day. It’s debilitating.
Talking of mace, here's a story. Briefly at Sydney airport they mounted those motion-detecting deoderisers in the gents that spray scent when they detect movement. At eye height. On the urinal wall. I noted this and started weeing a few feet away from it (one long wall, not individual urinals) and was halfway through when someone else came in.
