A science fiction audiobook slash metal music piece. At least half the book is various forms of metal music, that emphasizes the events, mood and themes at that point. The "lyrics" to the music is a continuous part of the novel, with no repeating phrases or choruses, other than what would be appropriate in a regular novel.
Neats and Scruffies, a good concept if you're not familiar with it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neats_vs._scruffies
Also very relative; next to many people in the federation space I think people think I look like a "neat", but really I compare myself to very math'y compsci researchers and I'm a very practical "get things done" person IMO and thus fairly "scruffy". Tag yerself I guess?
guns, school shootings Show more
President Dumbshit seems to think that all it takes to end school shootings are trained, armed teachers.

I used to read news.admin.net-abuse in the early/mid nineties, when the moral/ethical question of whether to block spam was still an open question.
It took years for people to realise that if we didn't block spam, then we wouldn't see anything else on email or usenet.
And that was technical admins who had to realise, not tech CEOs, who tend to be much more stubborn and less able to accept input.
At the age of 27, Malcolm changed his last name to X. He later wrote that Little was the name that "the white slavemaster ... had imposed upon [his] paternal forebears".
#Civilrights leader #MalcolmX was assassinated in New York on February 21, 1965. This is his story:
