butt stuff xmas 

Inexplicably my parents wanted 250 pounds of concrete for Christmas πŸŽ„

My brother fixes small airport weather stations for a living. I went with him to see what he does. Basically he's a corn field party planner.

Huh. Merry xmas to me! I've never been in a fantasy football league before. My team went 8-6 and apparently I won the whole league. There were two 11-3 teams, but apparently I won some sort of playoffs thing at the end.

I am a sport genius. /me quits his job, moves to Vegas to become a professional sports betting person.

Google sick burn.

Background: Raku the programming language used to be "Perl 6." Ruby is a totally different programming language.

I have a lifelong struggle with marketing hype, tax abatements.

In theory Tesla's Gigafactory 1 will be covered in solar panels and an up-front 1000 acre grant and $1.3B in immediate tax breaks will be a bargain after 20+ years.

In practice there's a small % of solar panels on the building and I fear 20 years from now new politicians will just cut new deals in a race to the bottom of corporate taxation, underfunding public infrastructure / services, while giving away public lands / resources.

Amused by YouTube videos that use stock footage while making fun of that footage & themselves for using it.

Denver was huge! Thousands of well intentioned people trying to make a difference. (And a couple assholes, but I'll leave that grossness on birbsite.)

Go is a fun game. But zero sum conflict. In today's political climate and in the shadow of Monopoly: Socialism Edition I've been pondering some sort of non-zero-sum solidarity co-op Go.

On the other hand, like 4 player chess, a zero-sum multiplayer Go is intriguing. :)
