I left the computer/console gaming world in the mid 1990s, just as FPS/perspective-based gameplay was on the rise, so I really haven't been significantly exposed to that.

So my gaming experience is about as separated from modern gameplay as it was from Pong.

I need to catch up.

This is something I find silly. Googlers who are complaining about treatment for expressing political opinions at work, your first mistake was EXPRESSING POLITICAL OPINIONS AT WORK.

Free speech is in the public forum, not in the workplace.

Tonight/tomorrow, loud SFX in ATL dramatizing the '96 Centennial Olympic Park bombing for . It's a film so I wonder if it will even *mention* the bombing also by Eric Rudolph. We'll have to wait and see.

I know not everyone likes The Atlantic, but they are first publishers of this.

Reagan to Nixon: "...those monkeys from those African countries..."

Yeah, I already spit on Reagan's memory for his treatment of AIDS. This just adds to his bullshit legacy.

This year, my employer's annual harassment/sensitivity training course has a very comprehensive section on transgender folks and gender identity. Way to go!

Well, if there were no collusion with Russia, here's actively soliciting help from a different foreign power during the campaign.

Grammar error aside, I'm kinda disturbed at this survey question. Hands-free operation is critical.

To be fair, the other survey questions asked about how to improve Assistant, but this one took me aback a bit.

I'm proud to live right next door to Clarkston. I'm happy not to be surrounded by just pasty white faces like mine. This is what America should be.

Georgia used to have progressive representation in the US Senate, and it deserves that again.

Too young. Too soon. Too unrealistic. That's what they said when I ran for mayor of Clarkston, GA. But I didn't listen. And I won.

Now I'm running for the U.S. Senate in Georgia to take on David Perdue. Watch our announcement video and join our campaign.

"...PLOT TWIST, the world's first gender-reveal party baby is a girl who wears suits!"

Yep, not everything has to be put into a simple binary choice. Props for fostering your kid's chosen form of self-expression. They're gonna move mountains someday.

Someone told me today that I'm "woke."

I don't adopt that label because I know there's always some way I can improve further, by learning from someone else's life experience.

One of the most powerful tools of being human is the ability to listen and learn something new.

Hey @Microsoft@twitter.com I set "ObCaseInsensitive" to 0 for a reason.

Quit resetting it back to 1 on every damn feature update. You're breaking my Cygwin install. Kthxbai.

"i saw them covered in blood. i saw them crying. i saw them running, hiding in nearby shops, chased through the streets by organised groups of nazis that kept screaming: WE’LL KILL ALL FAGGOTS."

But, ya know, we should listen to all sides... 🤬

Adam,

23 years ago today, we met.

11 years ago, you were immortalized in plastic and @Hasbro@twitter.com @starwars@twitter.com history as .

Four years ago, we could finally marry.

A little over a year and a half ago, I lost you.

I'm wearing our ring again this week, to remember us.

Just saw a clip of @RepCummings@twitter.com ripping Kevin McAleenan a new one over the cruel treatment of migrants.

He and @repjohnlewis@twitter.com (proudly my representative for 20 years) keep my hope for the future alive.

Explicitly racist chant at a rally. You want comparisons to Nazism? Here you go, plain as day. "Send her back!" when referring to @Ilhan@twitter.com. 😠

Thank you @washingtonpost@twitter.com for being willing to call racist things as such, without whitewashing it as an "Op/Ed".

Radicalism breeds reaction.

I've been seeing quite a resurgence in anarchocommunist attitudes (the pure ideology, not a political regime) in young adults. They are quite clearly reacting, and strongly so, to the rightward Overton slide.

They will help to pull that window back.

Ooh apparently I'm a "leftist" now.

If that's what it means to treat humans with common decency, I accept the label happily.

(Hint: the Overton window has been pulled so hard towards the "I got mine, so fuck you" right-wing, that all good and decent people are "leftists" now.)
