Well I suppose it’s Wednesday on the east coast. First transpacific flight, coming up in a few hours. Suffering through flight anxiety, per usual.

Lost a toenail earlier this week, finally. That was a fun first.

You’re 100% misinterpreting my comment if you think I’m saying there’s no difference between the two. There’s a huge difference and I’m leaving this conversation at that. Also re-read this comment and hoooooooooly shit you're making a lot of assumptions about me. Carry on.

How am I inaccurate when we’re saying the same thing? You’re just going a little more in depth. Jesus Christ this is why I left Hubski the first time.

Nope, I’m correct on this one. You’re talking card checks, and are right on that topic. I’m talking secret ballot elections which are different.

Here’s the money quote:

“If a majority of employees voting (i.e., not a majority of employees in the bargaining unit) in an NLRB-conducted election choose to be represented by a union, the union is certified”

The best part is if a secret ballot election happens, you have a pretty goddamn good chance of “winning”.

I.e. if there are 500 grad students, and only 40 vote, only a majority of those 40 need to vote yes and POOF all 500 are union now.

Yeah, way too short notice for me. Going climbing tomorrow near Snoqualmie, and then getting a nice hike in up by Winthrop on Sunday.

Perspective is talking to family members who have never been west of Michigan or east of Rhode Island about you preparing to go in to a completely foreign country, Bhutan, and looking up places to stay in Bangkok on the way.

There’s a lot to be thankful for, it’ll be a big list this Thanksgiving.

Wow I completely forgot about TikTok. Probably would have preferred to have kept it that way. I’m very close to deleting my Amazon account. You still have one?

Snapchat? Most things other than WhatsApp, which, whole we’re at dismantling this whole thing let’s take that back to pre buyout.

I actually took the minutes to read that article. Man, is that what brainwashing looks like?
