Never thought I'd feel a smidge of support for a certain micro vlogging platform to win a lawsuit against the potus, yet here I am

Started watching mad men a few days ago and I'm still thinking about how they mis-captioned, "Agua de Beber", a bossa nova jazz standard, as "spanish singing"

I hope everyone downtown is safe right now. There are currently hundreds of cars and thousands of Trump supporters swarming downtown in flag waving lifted trucks. They are spraying people with mace and shooting them with paintball guns from the truck beds. Tons of people are in cosplay of the Kenosha militia guy. They are jumping out and beating people on the street. It's just escalating and escalating 😟

Dang sometimes I feel like I'm not a very productive or useful person but, I've done more than a few cool things than my peers, and starting with a lot less than them and I feel a little better about myself. Although my HS friends have mostly graduated college and I have 2 years left

Which reminds me that I actually "met" Russ once. He offered us little plastic gopher swag and cake

Mad Men but for software devs. It would have blogging instead of sex and instead of John Hamm it would be Russ Cox or something

My coworkers are cool, but I don't think I'd want to work on other projects with them. When in-person classes start again, I need to make an effort to talk to more people

I need more friends (who are not co-workers) that are into computers

powerpoints are lossy compression for ideas. Pdfs are lossless compression. And memes break the laws of entropy, by actually providing more information than limited by the number of bits

Men's body image, AIDS, homophobia 

You ever look at the guys who used to be considered the sexiest men alive before 1992 (Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Javier Bardem, Sean Connery) and think it's a bit weird that unrealistically toned bodies with extremely well defined abs became the norm in the early 90s? Turns out a big part of that was because a muscular build was considered a sign that you didn't have AIDS.
