Tips for Americans trying to use the internet 

1) If something is "national", you need to specify it is the _American_ national thing. Other countries have their own national things.
2) If talking about states, you need to specify it is _American_ states. Other countries have their own states, and they don't care or know about yours.
3) Same for "the government", unless you are talking about all governments in general.
4) The majority of countries in the world are "other countries" and not the US.

Very ready for the next 6 months of lovely hot weather. I know I'll have a different take on this in 4-5 months, but having the first warm one today has been very nice

So the liberals are shocked yet again by what the anarchist/socialist movements have been saying for some 200 years. Also why protests like the ones of occupy or polish KOD were futile.

On the bright side, I'm learning a lot more about solar panel and battery storage options

Bought a bag of coffee this morning. My "idk this one sounds good" choice is apparently waaaay more caffeinated than what we normally get.

I'm not getting much work done this morning
