They say the price of freedom of perpetual vigilance.

The price of perpetual vigilance appears to be debilitating fatigue 🀷

Just walked past a guy huffing lighter gas directly against his teeth while holding a lit cigarette in the other hand. Damn.

Just saw a dude on a folding, electric fat (tyred) bike.

plz giv

hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?

well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M

so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure

Working 60+ hours a week + ~10 hours commuting a week doesn't give you much time to do anything else but sleeping.

Very happy it's only for a month.

Casting of a concrete support at Dunbar train station for platform expansion.

Concrete is amazing, kind of like 'cold' lava: liquid rock you can pour and then sets. It's 'traditional' too, with some formulations (Pozzolana) being used in ancient Rome.

It's also really badly recycled, takes up loads of space in landfill and emitting loads of Co2 net. We need to use less of it.

Will dig/fill holes for minimum wage.

Can bring own spade.

Father told me yesterday that the first ten years after the birth of child seem like a blur, as if life sped up.

I don't need you
I don't need you
You're like see-through
I don't see you

-- 'I don't need you', Die Antwoord. Nice mantra for difficult people.

I think I need to write about absurd and iterative philosophy, because they keep me together on so many issues which cause many of my friends to suffer.
