I am ready to dispense opinions for public consumption in response to responses made to this post.

@ceejbot Just like we probably have a large population of serial killers who are so good that they are never caught or even suspected to exist, we probably have a population of super-wealthy people who are quietly and unremarkably totally reasonable or even decent.

@ceejbot I think it's an intensifier for how you already were.

I just realized something really scary.

The way that fb and the horrible birdsite display their news feeds: an infinite scrolling list in rough order of what they think will cause you to react... is based on my early work with (and arguably invention of) collaborative filtering in the early 90s. It was a good idea, but in widespread adoption has seemed to cause some terrible, real problems.

I'm really sorry, everybody.

@shonalika really sorry to hear it and hope you feel better soon

Just innocently watching Matthew Berry's show Toast of London from 2012, and it's a surprise joke about Boris Johnson:

@loosenut and what makes this better is that most cops are not going to know that word.

As a lifelong meditator, which practice I recommend to pretty much everybody, I was really pleased to see Rashida Jones and Nick Offerman do this bit.

Seems like due to his incompetence, greed, and venality, Donald Trump has now murdered more than 100,000 people, mostly Americans.

I'm still sad that nobody has ever noticed the ringer on this shelf.

I was telling a friend about the book _Trout Fishing in America_ and I realized that Chuck Tingle is the modern day Richard Brautigan.

Sourdough crêpe with saucisson, sour cream, and homemade habanero kimchi and sriracha.

Voting is always tactical. Of course winning politicians will pretend not to realize that. For those of us with political opinions beyond the Overton window, voting is *harm reduction*.

Pig in blanket made with crêpe from sourdough starter castoff. Mustard, sauteed onions, hot sauce on the inside. Playing with this stuff is more fun than having the daily fresh sourdough (which, don't get me wrong, is also great).
