Is it wrong to verbally acknowledge my white privilege and point out the racial disparities that exist in the US? example, I'm crossing the street midblock without a crosswalk. My sons says, we shouldn't do this, it's jaywalking. My reply - you're right, but there's a good chance that we won't be ticketted for it because we're white. Isn't that awful?

Or... just purchased a car, it doesn't have plates, I don't feel like it's a big deal to drive it home because I'm white. If I were black, it'd be a problem.

I just completed "The Tyranny of the Rocket Equation" - Day 1 - Advent of Code 2019 adventofcode.com/2019/day/1

100% serious question: 

Do folks who are uncircumcised have issues with their pubes getting caught in their foreskin?

Ever wanted to watch a guy build a log cabin with a chainsaw? I put this on yesterday and finishing it up this morning.

Anyone been in any wild caves? This is something I've discovered over the last couple months. It's amazing.

Occasionally I get sucked down a Feinsteins/54 Below hole.... and today discovered this.

@Galdrakinn noticed you hadn't posted much over the weekend... hope you're well.

I see a fb marketplace post right after it's posted. I comment immediately. First comment. I get a fb reminder that it's still available... so I message the lady. She had 2 items I wanted. She told me one was still available. I tell her I can come tonight and grab it, she says where? My reply is wherever. And her reply is sorry it's sold. WTF.

And I want to point it out, specifically to my sons and generate conversation.

FWIW, I'm not doing this from a point of power, but of disgust and outrage.

I know that "i read that as...." is barely interesting, but... I read this as "These were built to hold groups of believers"

I had a dream that I was at a restaurant and @sophia was working and I didn't have the balls to talk to her.

Email newsletters that are pull vs push. Podcasts for text content. Is this just RSS/newsreader? Something about this I'm having trouble getting my head around.

Anyone ever change career paths from making $70k to $30k. Considering doing it so I'm doing something that I feel is worthwhile instead of just working to pay the bills.
