College Football HATE
Seriously fuck the Florida State Seminoles and their whole racist ass mascot and aesthetic. Yeah, your casino mafia of a First Nations neighbors say they are cool with it because it brings in casino revenue, but that doesn’t make it right you white Florida Man and Florida Woman idiots. #AmericasWorstSuperheroes #FloridaStreetSemiracists
Our dystopian present
There’s a few RVs I see parked in the same spots for weeks at a time. They aren’t technically homeless because, you know, RV, but they must be some sort of poor, downtrodden. No access to power. Knifes edge of functionality / wear / tear. It’s an odd economic indicator that worries me.
Care Bear take
I have always believed Cousins >> Bears. There’s fewer of them. They have more personality. They have more character growth. Their plushes aren’t just redyed and re-embroidered sameness. They are instrumental in all the biggest battles (though sure only because those are when the toy manufacturer reminded the writers that the Cousins exist).
(As a kid I had a Brave Heart Lion plush. This is indeed an always fight.)
Another attempt at "Pirate ASMArrr"
VB6 Hungarian Notation Amusement
The VB6 app I'm inside the guts of, per the nature of such things, has a ton of weird Hungarian Notation. It also does a ton of metric conversion everywhere for the usual VB6 reason of storing everything in US Customary and converting all the time always for Metric users.
The conversion function takes a Unit enum that explains what the existing unit is, but with the Hungarian "eu" prefix makes it sound like convert TO "EU Feet" 🤣
The only question I had about the DNC debate: how many people on stage?
Sounds like there was still at least 7 fools too many.
This media circus bullshit is an absolute mistake and is exactly how we got the last election's results. I get "choice is nice" but divided we fall. Nothing like starting the process pre-divided to hand over a divide and conquer silver platter to the opposition.
You aren't going to beat fascism with a primary scrabbling for fucking demographic crumbs.
Mentioned to a community of friends that Is had the saxophone solo to "Baker Street" stuck in my head all day.
Was informed a girlfriend of a friend in said community was a humble bragging about a burlesque act to the same song cover, particularly about quite how many toy saxes she engineered into the costume to pull out at key intervals.
I love that community of friends. Among other things, it's clearly very sax positive.
It's that Phase of the work year where I must break out the XP VM to use the ancient VB6 IDE to fix bugs in old software I've been trying to replace the rest of the year instead. 😱👻 Happy Halloween in September to me.
(Wow this VM is painfully slow. I forgot Windows XP even had this many ways to hourglass.)
