Why am I dreading going to #35c3? What is this feeling trying to tell me?
So, I didn't start out my day thinking I'd be building a tax practice for sex workers, but hey...gotta take the wins when I can.
Thanks #thotaudit dummies?

Adventures in living with your minority immigrant Midwestern Trump voting parents #37:
Me: *Posts on Facebook publicly about a bit part in a movie I was in that won an award in Austria*
Dad: (Several minutes later) "When do we get to see the movie?"
Me: "You would not make it through the first 15 minutes. It's very anti-capitalist"
Dad: "Oh, come on now, don't sell me so short!"
Me: "Dad, you lost your temper when I defended Keynesian economics at breakfast on Tuesday"
Dad: *walks off*
So they're talking about Chilean vineyards, and my Dad is going on about the private chefs, the great hotel, his massage, etc. the tours where you can see the harvest, etc.
Should I point out that the vineyard is owned by Pinochet's arms dealer and internationally wanted war criminal?
(I won't because Mom gets upset by this)
So, sorry for the pause, I went on a quest to find birthday candles because apparently it's someone's birthday.
In the interim they found out that four of them have were born in November, one on election day.
"I don't know what they're talking about, I've been voting for 34 years and my polling place is always nice, friendly and there's never a line. I don't know what it is what poor people are complaining about"

Waking up to an email notification that the now-retracted paper that plagiarised me is still accruing citations
(Here's the retraction, btw:)
@nickfarr we are dependent of what nature gives us but we are also responsible for how much we fuck up nature. So your own actions might seem very small they can influence a lot of people around you and by this will cause a much bigger effect. So be nice to each other and do not try to exploit for your own profit.
I was raised to believe the world is a good place, and the people in it are mostly good with a few exceptions.
Most of my adult life has been showing me the world is an awful place run by horrible people.
In truth, in honest and seeking retrospect, I find the world is neither. It is simply intrinsically as indifferent as balls on a billiards table.
Which pocket we land in rests on physics, the skill of the players controlling us and the table we land on.
One time I made a mix CD, embedded a Walkman CD player in a music box I found at a thrift store and gave it to a crush.
I found it in the dumpster behind the sports bar I worked at, by accident, when I was taking out the trash.
I think that's the moment I became capable of committing war crimes when ordered to do so.
Solving problems. Hopefully interesting ones.
