so I just signed some Linux Foundation documents for the purpose of getting a simple pull req on Kubernetes accepted
it demanded my title
so via my paternal maternal great grandfather's answer to this question, the Linux Foundation now officially knows of me as (representing myself) Chief Cook and Bottle Washer
but also not? anyway i'm slightly drunk
ughhhhhh i'm going to have to read the bell curve one of these days. probably somewhat of an easier read than The Turner Diaries but again that's not saying much
Did You Know: Charles Murray (yeah, the The Bell Curve guy) once burned a cross with his little boy gang in his youth? When asked today, he said, oh no, no no no, they wouldn't have even ever *thought* about how doing that is racist.
Then in '94 he compiles sloppy science and uses it to say "so this is why we shouldn't offer welfare or education funding to Black people: they're just (maybe who know I don't know for sure but we should do it anyway) stupid and they wouldn't know how to use the money well!!"
but don't worry he's not racist and sure never has been. he'd know
How to become a specialist in tech jobs:
you have to do something with a tool you don’t know
You hate it instantly
Turns out this tool is driving you mad
You spend 2 weeks fixing this particular tool and learning trough pain
You finally made it work
Congrats, now you are a specialist on something you hate.

Three more antiracist books on the queue (which puts it up to 4), and I'm trying to decide if my next read on the other end should be UR, Fanged Noumena, or Siege.

so hopped up that i can't pretend
Open and Shut
Type in Morse code by repeatedly slamming your laptop shut
i'm out on the block again
