@phooky I earlyvoted and it was great!
Also, my employer makes election day an optional paid holiday and encourages us to spread the idea around in hopes that everyone will do it. Encourage your business-having acquaintances!
And the Times explainer on the ballot questions this year:
It's an off year, so your vote counts even more. If you're in NY and gotta tl;dr, here's the WFP endorsements:
Pewvember #4 - The Audacity 440: a good workhorse laser pistol except for its tendency to drift out of tune, it remained in production for over 35 years.
Pewvember day 4: The tiny Delexine L4 was marketed as "the discreet blaster", but anyone with an ear within a parsec could instantly recognize its distinctive "pew pew".
Day 3 of Pewvember: the ill-advised Chronoablative Hyperbeam was fired only once, vaporizing its own creation. Its name, some early technical drawings, and this field recording are all that remain.
Pewvember the 3rd: the Gupta Cleaver - the name was a kind of a joke, you see, because you could use this industrial laser both to cut and to weld. It was much better at cutting.
Cecilia is an amazing tool.
Pewvember is about to get much more interesting.
Day 2 of Pewvember: The Raygun Industries Model 6, which almost never blew up in the user's hands. Reminiscent of the classic pewpew.
I'm in this story (as one of the "other people in the office with me")
Is there a term for this particular patois that surrounds wealth? Because it's fucking nuts.
“building a business model that will adapt this legendary brand for the future of experiential luxury.”
(Least of all the hyperminers on the Sirian-Magellanic wormline, many of whom are still suffering from phase-shifted warp lung.)
