They say the price of freedom of perpetual vigilance.

The price of perpetual vigilance appears to be debilitating fatigue ๐Ÿคท

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

@muninn thank you for these toots! The first bottle of cbd oil I've ordered arrives tomorrow from a supplier I've trusted for other things (bulk powders.)

In curious to see if I can derive benefits. Thanks for links: so much woo out there atm.

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.

@tbeckett @wu_lee you're not exactly selling this kid rearing thing ;p But I'm grateful some kind people did it for me. Everyone pays it forward I guess.

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.

@tbeckett iiinteresting. I'm expecting or planning atm, but somehow I want to know.
