One of the best things about Linux-based hobby projects is that I look busy when I'm goofing off.

"What are you working on?"

"I'm setting up a private CA so I can authenticate the cert for the Web front-end for the znc service."

"Sounds good. Carry on."

Have just been informed by my 4 year old that baby whales like spaghetti a lot

Perhaps I should look for a new job, but I can't think how that would work.

"So you're middle-aged -- not that we practice age discrimination, of course. And we see from your resume that you're a college dropout and you've accomplished absolutely nothing. So why do you want to leave your current job?"

"I'm incompetent, and want to find another job before they notice and fire me."

Another day of feeling stupid at work.

I found myself thinking it was a mistake to take a week's vacation, because I can't catch up. Which is fucked.

the facts are thuis:

* batman is a billionaire industrialist for the military industrial complex a.k.a. literally the worst kind of person imaginable

* wayne enterprises is the primary employer of gotham city, implying that its basically some fucked up Amazon/Bezos bullshit where the entire city bends over backwards to hand it tax credits while they underpay workers and keep them barely at poverty level

* despite making billions from defense contracts to bomb brown people worldwide, Wayne Enterprises ~somehow~ doesn't pay enough taxes to Gotham City to fund, say, mental health services. how curious

* so after creating widespread poverty and starving city services to enrich himself, batman spends his spare time beating up people who are failed by the system that he feasts from

all this shit about needing guns to defend your home. this shit is simple. if someone robs you, while they're robbing you you steal their car. easy. then they can't get away and you have a free car.

Y'ALLLLL My story, "Carborundorum > /dev/null," is on the cover of @firesidefiction's September issue! This is my first illustrated story AND my first cover story.

I'm dropping a link here, but also a Content Warning: this story is about teenage girls, rape culture, and #WhyIDidntReport. It is relevant to current events and made of rage. But it is also made of hope, and love and empathy for girls.

Around 15 Louisville DemSocialists were attacked at a social gathering by 8 apparent members of a 3% militia group. Attackers pepper-sprayed DSA members & restaurant employees, yelling โ€œtake your socialist, commie bullshit & get the fuck out of here."
