Nope. This isn’t science fiction; no dystopian future. This is here… now. I’m past opining, but willing to converse on any subject that improves lives. #Volcanology, #Petrology, #SW #Engineer, #System Architect, and #SciFi #writer; I really dig #butterflies. Especially the tiny ones. Walker in the Rain. #CowboyBebop

Wow. #SCOTUS Just wow. This so looks like TFG's appointments coming to bail him out. And for what?
People who want to control a complete stranger's adult sex life are disgusting. They are the real sex criminals. The real perverts.
You can't stop recreational sex, and something is deeply, disturbingly wrong with you if you want to. Something is already wrong with you if you're fixated on anyone's sex life but your own.
How about instead of playing out your personal issues through our legislature you just....grow the fuck up? How about you go to therapy or a dominatrix and leave the country OUT of your psychodrama?
Random thought: We play among the ruins of lost generations. and, descending into darkness, become the foundation upon which future generations in turn repeat the game.
Thought becomes thoughtless stone, a thousand thousand times.
And all that matters is the now.
Best U.S. Southern Dessert:
Type "Women are..." and/or "Men are..." and let predictive text finish the sentence.
I kind of fell asleep today instead of doing what I wanted to do. Oops?
Pain can consume our life-force with such intensity that we are unable to use what little we have left to escape its voracious appetite.
Seems there’s no great concept or idea that promotion and institutionalization can’t ruin. Take, for instance: #floridaman
Imagine thinking that one can age a tree by cutting it down and counting its rings. I don't think many trees have died, ever, since the dawn of trees. Humanity is a collective sleepwalk, barely awake as its consciousness struggles to grasp its own identity, its very existence.
Question: MDF or OSB board underlayment over existing underlayment to strengthen floor?
Our house is aged and the flooring underlayment is also the finished floor, like 2" tongue and groove, and it's not holding up too well with my medical equipment.
We had extra bracing added at delicate areas between joists that was causing problems, like where my motorized wheelchair puts weird pressure. ( see below.)
Why am I both people in this conversation?!
I expect that we will see more tech #layoffs in 2024 due to stock holder demand & the rise of artificial intelligence in many companies.
📹 Why Widespread Tech Layoffs Keep Happening Despite A Strong U.S. Economy https://youtu.be/SkAc2P_audc
I did not like how CNBC minimized or belittled how devastating the layoffs have been. Near the end of the video they said it only affected 1% of tech workers in the industry.
1% is a lot considering how many folks work in tech.
There are quite some religious and spiritual people I like a lot and deeply respect.
I would never judge a person based on their #faith.
The same is not true for #religion itself and esoterics. I was always convinced that such belief systems are poisonous to the mind in the sense: If they can make you believe something for life, because you were told so as a child or by a guru or a book (these are the common entry points) without evidence, you can basically be taught anything, if somebody
