Work From Home is overrated.
Instead, I propose Work From IKEA. Go to IKEA when it’s absolutely dead during the week and join a video conference from a different mock room every hour until your team notices.
Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.
Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.
Right to repair proposal in Canada: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/gyawqy/right-to-repair-legislation-is-officially-being-considered-in-ontario-canada
A line near the end bothers me: "This likely will make pushing a bill through difficult, especially with a conservative government in power"—I'd be happier if this was the usual "conservatives prefer to support the tyranny of big business" but really it's a reflection of our politics. Conservatives automatically preferentially vote against liberal proposals and vice versa. Even if they want the legislation enacted—they'll do their best to kill it, then reintroduce it when they have the support. It's disgusting.
alright so one time when i was like 11? 12? and i had gotten my first cellphone (my dad bought a new phone so i got his old one)
i got a text from an unknown number saying happy easter (it was about that time), and we had so much fun last year, and signed by “Leffe and the snakes” (although in swedish ofc)
who’s Leffe? does he own the snakes or are they like roommates? what happened last easter? i never found out. but i still think about that sometimes
"Be careful at Five Fingers," he says. "Don't forget to use the right-hand channel."
"I know," I tell him. "The old steamboat channel."
"That's right. The steamboat channel. Keep to the right."
And then he adds, as if by an afterthought: "I lost my father in Five Fingers. Many years ago. He took the other channel."
...Is the Yukon even in real life?

Now I am going to start a new knitting project so I can continue to not think about... things.

After months of intense ABBA exposure, I am embarking on the multihour project of determining my ordering of ABBA songs.
A few hours in, I have the top 30 picked out and I am still on songs that I have a big attachment to.
Writes codez. Haz Feelingz. Is Skwurl. I talk about ABBA more than is reasonable.
