Only 600 more miles to the "Earth Diameter" lifetime achievement badge (7900 miles). https://www.fitbit.com/user/22VJ5G

lol The Strongest Padlock in the World (Seriously) — Squire Stronghold SS100CS
Rated for 10 minutes of angle grinder w 3 replacement wheels and 1 replacement battery; or fire 100 rounds of armor piercing ammo into it. It weighs twice as much as the US Military uses to secure their shit

There is a new law that says you must specifically request your ballot *every* year. If you want to vote in the primaries or the general election, you must request your ballot.
You can do so very easily via this website: https://www.votefromabroad.org
It requires you to know your registration information and to upload a signature. Takes 5-10 minutes.
It's run by Democrats Abroad but will work for members of any or no party.

Ha! The Expanse Season 4 is amazing. And wraps up with Klaes Ashford doing 2 super powerful (floating baby! OMG!) artistic readings of the lyrics of Captain Kidd that I know from the Kansas City pirate shanty band The Jolly Rogers, Googling of which led me to this new to me podcast feed where he interviews the band: https://www.underthecrossbones.com/utc-188-the-jolly-rogers/
