He just said "Isn't it weird that our skeletons are all wet right now?" and... I... :psyduck:

Someday I'd love to do a similar treatment to headphones as MichaelCthulhu does with this hearing protection:

Big fan of the random pneumatic/gears style of "steampunk" myself. It doesn't make any sense, but you know... I like the look and that's all that matters!

So... You want to argue about humanity's role in climate change?

Fuck off. It doesn't matter who caused it - it's happening and the consequences are very real, and whether we are to blame or not doesn't change anything.

"Heritage Action for America" should be declared a domestic terrorist organization.

There's a recall for my bicycle.

What the hell.

Hmm... this is an interior wall between two cooled rooms, a foot away from the thermostat. I think this thermostat is on crack. (I am aware that the clock is fucked)

Oh dear, the racists are making noises in the fediverse again.

I'm wondering if I can just mute all of without missing anything worthwhile.

3D Printer shenanigans (Prusa MK3S) 

I've done it! Mwahaha! I mounted a Raspberry Pi4 to my Prusa via the Einsy Rambo J19 header.

No more stalls/dwells due to USB/RS232 bottlenecking!

Full writeup on Reddit, but basically the wiring is as such:

Pi GPIO bank -> Rambo J19
pin 8 (GPIO 14, UART TX) -> pin 6 (GPIO 19, RX1)
pin 10 (GPIO 15, UART RX) -> pin 8 (GPIO 18, TX1)
pin 9 (ground) -> pin 4 (ground)

The wires are twisted to reduce EMI.

still can't believe people are calling it y2k38, instead of THE EPOCHALYPSE

Stolen from reddit but fixed for rhythm:

Trumpty Dumpty promised a wall,
Trumpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the golf courses and all the white men,
Couldn't Make America Great [once] Again;

Trumpty Dumpty never finished his wall,
Trumpty Dumpty lost the election this fall,
All the bad lawyers and all the Yes-men,
Couldn't get Trumpty elected again.

From now until 12/1, dont believe anything - ANYTHING - you see on social media unless you know the person offline, or you are certain who it is and can point the person out in a crowd. Do not let the Russians trick you into believing garbage. Do not trust ANYTHING on Facebook.

Virtual and FREE.

Every time you say "pog" this is what comes to mind.

Stop it. Stop making up stupid words when we already have perfectly fine words for that already.
