I am probably working on Hubski.

Send me a PM or post with the tag #bugski if you think something is broken.

I filter #thebeatles.

I do not agree with everything that I post. I hope you don't either.

Thanks. I had a feeling that someone would check my math.

We are spending the week in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee with a family we have been podding with. Hiking and games.

Sushi Go! is simple and fun.

Done and done.

Maybe we'll get another European!

Did some more work on my fantastical landscape last night.

Just trying to figure out the composition.

Ok. Let me know which browser if it remains an issue.

Whether or not Trump is imprisioned in the next four years is likely critical for the survival of American democracy.

I don't think that's it.

I would say that the feeling is what reinforces the hard-coded behavior to assimilate. I do not think you need to appeal to people emotionally to win them over, if that were the case, it would be difficult to find people to man the gas chambers. I believe that if the majority of people are doing something, then it will quickly feel right to most individuals after they have been added to the group.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Your name is up there under the title. Was it somewhere else?

I was looking at that shoulder this morning. That would suck.

TBH I wouldn't be half as concerned about this virus if I believed that it was a byproduct of natural phenomena. Because I think it likely that it isn't, I am concerned about the mutational space it has to explore. In short, if it were engineered, it could have overcome energy/order thresholds that put it in an energy well with many new accessible niches.

Most people are engineered to follow. Few are engineered to understand.

Holy crap.

We should do a new run of stickers.

My custom RC car is complete. Post-covid, I am going to take it to a track.

Has anyone here used Clubhouse? Obviously, it's all the hype. I keep meaning to try it, but as far as I understand it, I am not terribly motivated to. I can't really set time aside for it, and I have my doubts that jumping on at any particular moment will be time well spent.

The good news is that Mitch probably wants to kneecap Trump.
