This is where Sanders' long experience in the Senate, and his virtuoso work using its procedures to advance his position, will serve him well. As we saw with McConnell, the ability to wield procedure is a powerful asset in getting stuff done.

Sanders knows all the dirty tricks that the Senate majority leaders used to sink his efforts, *and* he knows all the countermeasures that work against those tricks. He will be a force to be reckoned with.

What a delightful way to start a book! I can't wait to dig into it!

@goat i love how one of the most asked questions about this shambles is "have we imposed reciprocal measures" as if seizing their stamppot would show them

@yeenbean dunno if you've seen this already but we thought you'd appreciate it 😂

i don't really remember things anymore. i think this is because when you see a thing, your brain puts it into a box labeled "deal with these when they come up again", and when you see it again, the brain transfers it to a box called "might be important" and if it keeps coming up it goes in the box called "actually remember these"

the problem is, nowadays, nothing i see ever comes up again. i see literally everything once, ever, so nothing ends up in the "actually remember these" box

I find it quite funny that Parler users are discussing how to attack AWS data centres, as if the data centres would be as easy to breach as the Capitol building 🙄

@phryk It's also that 'local' is being killed on purpose. Local music, local files in general are increasingly seen as an 'edge' use case. The preferred way is to pay Google monthly so that you can stream low bitrate music over your crappy mobile connection that you now have to pay even more for.

Also, your favorite music might be or might not be there next week depending on how the latest round of label negotiations go.

You remember those "dumb" mp3 players in the beginning of the 2000s?

Those literally represent the best humanity ever had to offer in that regard and it's fucking laughable.

earlier this week my MOM of all people emailed me this xkcd comic with no text other than "chaotic neutral -- this is you" and goddamnit, she's right. I do always arrange eggs that way. I just like the weight to be evenly distributed! xkcd.com/2408/

Wednesday's coup attempt, off-duty police and military part of rioters 

From Politico

One current Metro D.C. police officer said in a public Facebook post that off-duty police officers and members of the military, who were among the rioters, flashed their badges and I.D. cards as they attempted to overrun the building. “If these people can storm the Capitol building with no regard to punishment, you have to wonder how much they abuse their powers when they put on their uniforms,” the officer wrote.

do not forget how quickly it fell out of the narrative about yesterday that two improvised explosive devices being found in DC after being placed by part of a mob of white nationalists.

the reason devs always say "you need to make sure your environment is set up properly" and refuse to help you set up your own environment or write proper documentation about how to do it, is that they themselves are terrified that you'll find out that they don't know how they managed to set up their own environment properly either

@Colophonscrawl ah yes, back when I was merely a penniless business student with a small landlord/real estate speculation hustle on the side
