I have ADHD. My attention is both limited and valuable, and there isn't a soul on this planet with the right to monopolize it

Was on a zoom meeting with my department, pressed leave meeting and proceeded to spill an entire glass of water and break a picture frame in one fell swoop. Swore up and down until my boss told me I was still on.

FML, death to zoom.

increasing the social cost of reactionary politics works. some of them maybe will keep doubling down forever — making their own, more racist version of nascar now that they banned a driver for saying the n-word, a more racist version of that, and so on, until it's just one guy driving around in a bicycle car and yelling slurs — but a far larger portion will get demoralised and either accede or actually start to reconsider their politics

As I'm reading snow crash I'm realizing the truth of "it's easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism"

Prediction: quarantine cut will be a fashion trend, but not before it's done ironically which would follow a period where it's forgotten, which would follow a longer period as a term of ridicule

This place is a message... and part of a system of messages... pay attention to it!

Sending this message was important to us. We considered ourselves to be a powerful culture.

This place is not a place of honor... no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here... nothing valued is here.

What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us. This message is a warning about danger.

The danger is in a particular location... it increases towards a center... the center of danger is here... of a particular size and shape, and below us.

The danger is still present, in your time, as it was in ours.

The danger is to the body, and it can kill.

The form of the danger is an emanation of energy.

The danger is unleashed only if you substantially disturb this place physically. This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.

I figure my garlic has been in the ground for about 140 days. Anyone know when you can harvest garlic?

If we call people heroes instead of hostages we don't have to look to closely at who is holding the gun.

Disappointing to learn that South by Southwest isn't an actual direction on the compass
