17 year-old Juliane Koepcke was sucked out of an airplane in 1971 after it was struck by a bolt of lightning. She fell 2 miles to the ground, strapped to her seat and survived after she endured 10 days in the Amazon Jungle.

My latest realization that my body has suffered under COVID, threw my arm out playing disc golf today. Yep, throwing a small plastic disc maybe forty yards is too much 🙄

I've served on non-profit boards and no one with a site like his would every get approved to be on the board of any other non-profit. Its not one post, one perceived insult, its the theme and the shear breadth of it that is the problem.

Any movement so weak that it has to bend over backwards to keep one guy on top has bigger problems than "cancel culture". Rather, it is its own worst enemy.

That, in a nutshell is why I have never gone all in on free software. Its not the idea, it is the people. Its the never ending in-fighting, tribalism, and conspiracy theories. Its really hard to trust products that come out of that swamp.

At every turn RMS chooses to put his poorly developed crackpot writing above his responsibilities in the movement he started and the position in it he clearly desires. He and his supporters are fine when people quit the board, rather than work with him, in fact they cheer it. Any criticism of him is immediately a Microsoft led hit job out to kill free software.

Show thread

When you put your opinions in the public sphere, you open yourself up for bad outcomes. I have been reading RMS's website for years and he says dumb, stupid things on a regular basis; irregardless of where your fall on the "pers" post.

The world's most well-preserved mummy was found at the altitude of 6,600 in Argentina. She was a 15-year-old Incan girl who had been sacrificed to gods around 500 years ago.

Definitely canceling that doctors appointment now. I was on the fence till my dog gave me one hell of a wake up at 4:30 am

It’s one of those mornings that the universe screams “I know you’re not working this week, but today your day starts at 4:30 am come hell or high water”

Have a physical tomorrow, strongly weighing canceling it. Feeling like I’m mentally doing well and that my doc telling me to lose weight (duh) and asking me about my anxiety will do more harm than anything else.
