I cleared my mute and block lists and Twitter and... Holy shit there are some horrible people on that platform.

Tonight is one of those nights I relish. Hanging with my folks and the antics are amazing.

My parents really are the worst influences.

Me: I'm not drinking and I'm doing a diet bet
Mom: I bought you coke
Also mom: we're at a pub. A beer won't kill you

Every time we see a pelican either @joytreats@twitter.com or I proclaims "brown pelican." I blame @shelleyKeith@twitter.com

It's not even 4pm and it is as dark as night in here.

This is also a lesson on why you claiming "you don't care about privacy" is bullshit. It's not about you and your "I got mine, fuck you" attitude needs to jump off a cliff

They're offering P-51 rides for $2400 and B-24 rides for $475 next weekend near my house. This might be worth skipping a couple of vacations for!

How many companies from this list do you use? If you consider yourself a digital rights advocate follow the 1st question up with how many of these companies for you criticize others for using. We must all do better. slate.com/technology/2020/01/e

Heh. My lights just told me I'm going to need to buy a new hub as the app will stop supporting the old version. I fucking hate tech sometimes.

Enjoying playing with GraphQL for Laravel today. I'm not sure it's not overkill for our project but it's fun all the same

What the actual fuck?

This had my jaw on the floor, which is saying a lot these days. Opera - yes, the browser company - has pivoted to being a provider of predatory payday loan apps in Africa. h/t @brucel hindenburgresearch.com/opera-p

The down side of getting real books from the library... my travel bag is about twice its normal weight for the weekend.

Yeah, I know I could skip the book but... I DONT WANT TO DAMNIT!
