I made the boy watch Run Lola Run tonight. Holds up pretty well for a 20 year old film!

Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.

Do you use tail -f ?

'I Cut Google Out Of My Life. It Screwed Up Everything'

"The more frequent effect of the Google block though is that the internet itself slows down dramatically for me.

"Most of the websites I visit have frustratingly long load times because so many of them rely on resources from Google... On Airbnb, photos won’t load... Because I’m blocking Google, Dropbox thinks I’m not a real person and won’t let me sign in."

my employer's HR goblins are EXTREMELY concerned that they may not be getting credit for my "diversity". Their plan is to ask me for a shit ton of highly personal secrets, non-anonymized, to see if I'm an interesting deviant. LOL no, also get fucked, jerks!

our Irish house guest has insisted on trying "an American s'more". I don't think he realizes what it entails, but we are dedicated to making this happen

tfw you realize that your lead researcher is basically Jenna Maroney, which makes you the Liz Lemon of the project

20 years in, I finally see how I might enjoy being a manager. When I have teammates who can do something that I don't know how to do (like ML research), it seems genuinely worthwhile to spend my time protecting them from bullshit instead of engineering it myself.

2,498: Number of times I wish someone would allow me to read words instead of making me watch a video, every single day.

we have an irish house guest who just found out about in-sink garbage disposals and he is INCONSOLABLE

jfc my dad just casually mentioned that he's taking oxy regularly for his back now. Does anybody have a good "how to talk to your Boomer about drugs" guide?

After the most recent GMS update, my phone now kernel panics and reboots whenever I walk under a specific tree near my office. o.O

This mailer from my power company seems vaguely threatening. Stay safe from these old people? Stay safe by saving power, so that PG&E doesn't need to come and rough me up? I don't think I want to know mastodon.technology/media/wUkv

But 2018 bro, you had some shit:
- Wasted a year of my career on utter bullshit
- Continued to drift away from old friends for no reason that I can understand
- omg world politics and climate
- omg the stock market
- California, plz stop being on fire

Oh geez you guys said so much nice stuff for New Years, now I feel shallow! XD

FINE here's a better 2018 list. The good:
- Resolved a decades-long family feud
- Good health and fitness
- Made new friends
- Got a better job
- Robey still tolerates me for some reason (9 years!)
