One of the most important distinctions we can make is the difference between an enemy attacking us and a friend disappointing us.

My money says the courts will pare this back a little bit but I'm happy to see NY pushing personal .

One of the weirder conceits common in science fiction is the males of other species are somehow attracted to human woman.

B) The first time you heard it you thought the chorus sounded like “system call, system call, system call.”

@seven from a blogspot post over 10 years deleted, I learned the following about black shirts and it has served me well:

> I am here to bestow the darkest secrets of Laundromancy upon thee...

1) WOOLITE DARK IST KRIEG. Your precious metal shirts are meant to be hand-washed, so as to preserve the ink prints and the integrity of the fabric. Woolite is expensive, but it is an investment in your metal cred. In recent years, WOOLITE DARK has been introduced, formulated for dark clothes exclusively. USE IT!

2) COLD WASH ONLY. Allow your clothes to soak in waters as cold as the rivers of Blashyrkh itself, without agitation. HAND WASH, or use the “hand washables / delicates” cycle on your washing machine. Your precious metal shirts get enough violent agitation when you’re wearing them in the mosh pit.

3) NEVER USE FABRIC SOFTENER ON METAL SHIRTS. “Softener” on a metal shirt? Are you kidding? Does the Snuggle bear really look like he knows the difference between Iron Maiden and Iron Angel? True metalheads welcome and relish Unsoftness. Fabric softener works by lubricating the weave, thereby subjecting your battle armor to strong-smelling, hydrophobic poisons that make your shirt refuse the hard-won sweat of the pit.

4) AIR DRY ONLY. Dryers are false metal. The cold north winds will serve you well (dryers beat up clothes, flaking off prints and adding a light layer of fuzz that makes them appear lighter). But keep them out of the sun’s rays! The sun, as always, is the enemy of darkness (UV can fade the pigments).

anyone in the #seattle area looking for work? i have a connection looking to hire someone with basic coding/scripting knowledge (no CS degree required). positions are semi-entry level SDET (test engineer) and dev ops, and i think the company mostly uses a windows Azure stack. DM me for additional details!

> I am done with great things and big things, great institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny, invisible molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which if you give them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man's pride.
