I live by four simple rules:
1. Don't be a dick.
2. Don't fuck it all up.
3. Don't forget to be kind.
4. Don't forget to have fun.
Astonishingly, they kind of cover every imaginable situation. And yes, I broke all of them in the past, too. I just try to not let it happen again.
Let's be excellent to eachother, you little pooptooters ♥️

First come, first serve: w/ my subscription of the Washington Post comes each month a free 30-day digital subscription for me to give away. I get no kickback, mind — it's just part of my already paid-for sub. Have fun!
"History is just one damn thing after another." Excellent article about the US (mostly), economic growth, consumerism, social clefts, and expectations and anger, and how we got here. Long read but worth it (for me). https://www.collaborativefund.com/blog/how-this-all-happened/

Do not believe a single word about how this information is kept private. There is zero reason to build a system to aggregate this and then not use it to make money out of.

Finally got around to installing AdGuard on my OnePlus 5T for low-level blocking of trackers and ads. Threw in all the domains from the Firefox Facebook Container add-on as user filters for good measure.

1st hand knowledge I could've done without in 2018:
"Instagram lips" are an actual thing, I've seen a number of ladies with terrible lip jobs here in Munich.
Don't get me wrong, please: it's their right to have them, I'll defend their right to have them. Free society etc. 👍 Having said that, personally I think IG lips look awful, even if they conformed to the ladies' IG filter-like makeup.
