MIL just told me that we’re getting one of our old prisons turned into an ICE holding facility 😡😤

I genuinely have no idea why my phone is trying to autocorrect milk to milf. I didn't bring home any milfs from the grocery store, and never have.

I am not, however, opposed to the idea.

Surreal that the IDF openly says "we are aiming to strike terror," a play on words as obvious as it is sadistic, and people will still yammer about Hamas. It would be like if you realized your neighbor was capable of using a baseball bat, a potential weapon, so you hit his house with white phosphorous.

i have 45 followers on tumblr before i abandoned the website for fedi and i had like 5 posts with over 50,000 notes and mainly i'd get people begging me to reblog their donation posts and i'd have to be like "this would do literally nothing for you because i'm just a nobody who was in the right place at the right time sorry"

Me encanta la voz de Bartrina, para mí los tangos suenan con ella, me gusta mucho más que la de Gardel.

vaccine 

The whole house is vaccinated!!!!!!

Well, dose #1. Everyone else got Pfizer. I'm on the Moderna train. Looks like their side effects have been pretty minor for dose #1, while mine kicked my ass. Not looking forward to the physical side effects of dose #2.

has anyone upgraded a circa-2014 thinkpad by putting an M.2 2242 SSD in the "WWAN" slot? what's performance like / which SSD did you use? these seem difficult to find

Yesterday was mardi gras, and the pod got take out from our local Cajun place and it was good. But, what seems significant was what seems a lifetime ago, last year we were all out at the same restaurant, packed with people, enjoying a live band, and it just wasn’t the same this year. Things will get better. Things will change. I hope we can keep some of the good things while purging out crap that needs to change.

Book report : Dawn - Octavia Butler - 1987 

On a purely physical note : This book is very poorly printed. I think when they switched to digital they didn't want to typeset the book again, so they just scanned one of the existing books. Not good.

I they scanned was a normal-sized paperback, but this is a trade, so the pages have huge margins, and STILL some pages are cut off near the spine!

(Still, it's better than the hardback, which has a cover portraying the protagonist as a white lady!)

Sega made a game where the protagonist is a Nintendo kid. He also grew up in a bathhouse, you can decide for yourself if these are connected.
