I need to stop trying to read the entire internet. It's never going to happen.

Because it's a skill that's missing in our society, here's how to apologize.

1) Acknowledge harm. "I f'd up." 2) State what you did that was wrong, in a way that shows you understand the harm done.
3) Express regret
4) Say what you're going to change to not cause this harm again
5) Listen.

Don't ask the hurt person for *anything.* It's up to them to accept or not, if they choose.

Don't be clever. Be plain & simple.

With Facebook Portal™ you can fit the whole family into your living room, along with Rob from Marketing, Daniel from our AI department and your local police force if they wanna pop in on you. We're all in this together 💙

> Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming service is losing access to more titles later this month,

> From a report: HBO Max's big selling point is being able to combine all of HBO's offerings on top of a slate of original titles that are exclusive to the app, classic Warner Bros. movies, and more.

Streaming is a swindle. Until this nonsense of titles wandering in and out and reappearing and disappearing and people trying to pull garbage like this show being 'exclusive' to that streaming service, let streaming die.

Wood Elves aren't made of wood. Sea Elves aren't made of water. M'aiq still wonders about High Elves.

It’s been way too long since I’ve put any time or effort into cleaning my workspace. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I started dropping things trying to work on a smaller and smaller workbench. So I think first I need to throw some stuff away, then I need to finish some projects.

covid-adjacent, uspol, longish 

after this is all over, be sure to remind people, as often as they'll allow you to get away with it, that:

telecoms did not need data caps, had plenty of capacity to donate to low-income folks, and were never in danger of going bankrupt because of the lack of data caps or the additional usage
folks who work on computers all day can do that wherever computers are; most tech offices are merely trophies to show off to other tech offices.
the government wasn't concerned with helping people, it was concerned with helping business. it was people who were helping people and often the government merely got in the way of that.
trillions of dollars was found to allocate as soon as they wanted to; every time anyone asks how anything will be funded it's merely to shut down the conversation.

keep a running list of your favorite facts and get them in front of as many folk as you can, as often as you can, and maybe, just maybe, we can get more folks on board for change

I always forget that my state's primary is around a month after Super Tuesday, so there are a lot fewer candidates to choose from when our turn comes around.
