    presuming Zeus himself gifted Elon the whole fuckin' apparatus

Seeing how he didn't see any problems with walking on the surface of Europa, he might as well be godlike. All fields perish that skim that dreadful king.

One of these days I'll buy a camera and you'll see that I don't live in a murky puddle of scum.

Work in progress. I wanted to paint something completely different, but then I discovered the excess of yellow paints and the plans got changed.

Two of my short stories are going to get printed later this year and my 'choose your own adventure' game is being considered for the special issue. I should be more excited, but dread every minute of it. kleinbl00 helped me get over the initial "how do I talk with editors?" problems and it can't be understated. Thanks once again!

Night shifts at the store are fucking up my sense of time. It's a blur of sudoku, crosswords, dicking around with my coding projects and being slightly shocked when a client enters. There's literally no reason for this place to be open at night, but I'm not going to raise this issue.

Yup, X-COM is among my favourites. I'm currently on my on-again, off-again quest of playing through all of the Ultima series.

    it seems lately for science articles the secondary is both more informative and more interesting than the main headline.


I'm experimenting on a version without tomatoes. It's a great, low-maintenance dish.

Heh. I have a goatee. As for illegal stuff: no, and not even because of some moral compass or whatever. I know that I have a breaking point and will hopefully never need to find it. However, there's something about me that makes police immediately suspicious whatever I do. At this point, I sincerely think that if a patrol would see a knife fight and me jaywalking, I'd be the one taken under arrest.

I have six people in a dire need of tutoring (each at least twice a week) and found a few people in the building wanting to learn how to play chess. The latter is fun and rewarding. Three nights a week I work as a cashier at a nearby supermarket. Finances are OK without dipping too much into my savings and I don't even need to commute anywhere. Could be better, could be a lot worse. Plus I have a lot of time to catch up with my reading list.

Still looking for a job that's at least marginally related to my skills and interests, but half-heartedly. It's hard to stave off apathy about it.

Same. IIRC, mk mentioned removing as much JavaScript as he can from the site around two weeks ago, so maybe it's because of that?

EDIT: Logging out and deleting cookies didn't work for me.

I'm starting to wonder if employers have any idea what they even want from their candidates. Even the interview I got through internal recommendation was delayed twice before someone called to tell me that the position is no longer open. And at the one place where my interviews went really well, people told me I'm overqualified. So I'm somehow overqualified for an entry position, but lack the experience to get anything above entry position. Pointing that out wasn't persuading anyone. Maybe I should chug some cough medications before my next interview? You know, to get a good amount of handicap.

I'm literally back to where I was seven years ago (and ever since): teaching maths and science to highschoolers threatened with repeating a grade. It's so fucking disheartening, and motivation is pretty much the only thing I have.

I was made aware of it rather unpleasantly some months ago. What for me was innocuous question got me banned on some subreddit for 'spewing alt-right rhetoric'. It was something along the lines of "why are you so opposed to white people getting financial help in college? poverty is poverty."
