You don't need permission to start contributing to open source. You just jump in the issues and help triage bugs and answer questions. That's a desperately needed contribution, you'll learn a lot, and contributing code will follow naturally from that if that's what you want.

so listen, its been a while (2014) since i've been on the ground due to illness, but at one time i was learning to be a street medic and if you're preparing to go out to protest, here are some things to help you be prepared:
1: If you can help it, try not to wear contacts. you may get gassed and that junk will get stuck behind the lenses. tight swimming goggles will help you to some degree tho
2: if you have a bandanna, soak it in apple cider vinegar and keep it in a plastic bag. take it out and breath through it if you find yourself in a gas cloud. it'll give you a couple minutes of protection to get out.
3: soak a wad of paper towels in dish soap and water and keep it in a plastic baggie for emergency decontamination of your skin. rinse your eyes with clear water. milk will alleviate the pain but wont get rid of the actual contaminant, soap will
4: oil free cold cream will also help to get rid of contaminants from the face
please be safe. carry change or small bills. tell people where you will be. have an escape plan. write important numbers on your arm, seal it with hair spray.
if you are asthmatic, carry your emergency meds or just sit it out. tear gas can kill an asthmatic. thats why i had to stop. i got gassed and almost died. please be safe.

I spent much of the extended weekend playing around with Google's new Action Blocks add-on for Android. (Yes, I really am that cool.)
This thing is much more useful than you'd expect — *if* you figure out how to tap into its mostly hidden powers:
@kevinroose @Moonalice I had a guy I'd known in real life about 10 years ago who would only show up to argue on my very occasional FB posts on political topics, while seemingly ignoring the other 99% of my posts.
When I called him out, his response was "these are the only posts of yours I ever see".
Another good news!
