I had a bread breakthrough. I suck at homemade bread. It always comes out flat and wrong. This one I cooked in the rice cooker on "brown rice" and then put in an oven to crisp up the outside. And despite the fact that I used too much rye and barley flour (because I ran out of white) it still rose like a champ :)
So there was a big protest today by schoolkids who blew off school and marched in the streets over government inaction on climate change.
The Prime Minister has said they should be less activist and focus on their schooling instead.
I just saw this sign. These kids are great.

Just ripped my Enchanted Mesa sweater back to the yoke for the third time. This is what happens when you try to make a fitted sweater from a Picasso-shaped pattern. Luckily, I love #knitting with the Malabrigo I'm using for it. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/enchanted-mesa
So looks like Wired is doing this YouTube series called Technique Critique where they grab an expert and have them critique how almost invariably inaccurate a certain skill is portrayed on film, like criminal forensics or computer hacking.
omg our banking system is so insecure. Just tried to verify a credit card for apple pay. They tried asking about my drivers license number, but of course they had the wrong number because the credit rating agencies they get the info from are unaccountable incompetent bs companies (who get hacked and expose your data so I don't ever try to correct that stuff), so then they asked my height and that's how they verified my identity. 🤦♀️
Armistice Day was meant to commemorate the millions of victims throughout WWI, and to mourn the needless loss of life and horror that war causes. But America, being a country built on war, transformed it into Veterans Day.
Veterans Day celebrates those who wage war as heroes, glorifying them and encouraging people to make martyrs of themselves. it presents dying on the battlefield as a noble and necessary thing.
Armistice Day celebrated peace.
Veterans Day celebrates war.
