Right good work Death, let's do Lizzy next and go for double-points.

I have never done anything with my github notifications except mark ~1200 at once as "done".

One of the key insights I've found from buying a flat / living lone is that about 70% of post addressed to me at home could've been an email. There are valid and notable exceptions, but most of these fuckers have my email address and are not sending me anything mission critical.

The accounting software at work says I have a notification but then it refuses to load when I click, and I therefore can't get rid of the little red number.

This is definitely the attention economy version of hell.

Can a comrade please assure me that Infected Mushroom is either pro-palestine or *at least* acknowledges that a lot of the settlements are illegal?

I can't find anything online but I've admittedly not looked very hard. Really like the music but can't be trucking with enemies of Palestine.

Look, I'm fine with people who snore. Really I am. But how is it fair that they universally manage to get to sleep first? Pick one!

Does anyone else remember when podcasts used to have nice little adverts for like pillows and mattresses? I feel that that now all podcast ads are for… other podcasts‽ And they all sound *really* rubbish.

I've been feeling quite tense around the shoulders and neck lately (big problem area for me), and realised recently that this might be related in no small way to my decision nlto stop completing the "trifecta" daily.

The "trifecta" is a series of three strength-lead *active stretches* (sometimes known as strength *holds*): the L-Sit; the bridge hold; and the twist.

I used to do them in the morning before work and after my regular training but the faff of…

It's not often I sit listen to music-that-has-lyrics while I'm working but I'm feeling nostalgic and listening to [In Flames - Clayman]( and mannn it's so good. Might try to make an effort to listen to more music while I work in the future.

Also, oddly, while skimming the wikipedia article for this note I learned some tracks have been re-recorded to mixed responses. I shall be investigating soon.

There's a witty comment about the Trumpist attempted coup, Biden recognising a *goddamn coup leader* in Venezuela and masks slipping on Day 1 but I can't quite find it.

Any liberals who think the Biden presidency will be good for anyone in Latam or the Middle East can get in the sea.

Y'know, Library Genesis and Sci-Hub are pretty much *the point* of the web and they deserve all of our love forever.

Writing thesis and listening to music that I was getting into at 14; growing my hair out and thinking "we'll have sorted global warming when I'm 30".

At 29 I've got a shaved head and beard, water futures are a thing, and I think I'm living as the gritty reboot of myself at 16.

Even as someone with a university login and access to journals I often still use Sci-hub; partly for support and partly because I don't have to log in every damn time my browser closes.

Honestly academic journals are as paranoid as thieves. You'd think they were hoarding stolen good or something…

Needlessly spicy take: I get *super* irritated at the internet slang "hooman" to refer to humans from a cute-animal pov.

I don't know why I don't like it; cutesy typing and such is a-ok with me, but it's just the fucking worst. "hooman". Eurgh.

It's been a few weeks now but I've begun to regret not putting my religion as "Gregg's" during the ONS not-census survey :-(

I've had a really sore wrist all day, no understanding as to why and I've just searched for my symptoms and it's likely RSI. I mean, can my body not wait until I'm a nice round 30 before it starts to fall apart please?
