I think it's no coincidence that someone like me, who has worked with computers for over a decade, prefers to own a dumb TV, a blender with mechanical knobs instead of a touchscreen, no "smart home" stuff, etc. I know how computers work, and for that reason I am terrified of them

I look at Portland tonight, and I want to get in the face of every gullible fool who told me I was crazy post 9-11 when I said the creation of the DHS was a very dangerous slope to tread.

That giving up liberty for security would get us neither.

for their fear taking them over and letting bad decisions be made...

This is on all of you... I remember you, I remember you trying to make me question my beliefs...

I ended up being right... and not a single one of you will dare admit it.

This is all on you.

I will concede it is *possible* to have a funny April Fool's today.

It would require luck, skill, panache, tact, imagination, grace, and absolute mastery of humor.

That person is not me. And it's probably not you.

Covid-19 coverage :

Facebook : negativity, pissing matches, misinformation, profiteering.

Mastodon : positivity, helpful advice, personal anecdotes, factual information.

The difference has never been more stark.

Today's random obsession...The Andes Volcanoes. Wikipedia has enough articles on them to keep me happy for a while.

Growing up in the shadow of the Cascades, they look so familiar. Very pretty mountains. Beautiful.

Crazy how the advice everyone’s had for the last 40 years has been to have six months of living expenses saved up but all these companies that have been posting record profits for years have two bad weeks and are suddenly out here hat in hand begging for bailouts.

I should go to bed but Garanca is singing about Pastia’s inn on the outskirts of Seville, and I can’t tear myself away.
