    Bruce Lee had surgery to remove the sweat glands in his armpits. This may have contributed to his death from heat stroke several months later.

    @vector if you make a high pitched squeak as if you were injured she should let up. this is what cats and kittens who are playing do when they get hurt, and since our skin is so much softer than theirs they need to be taught to play more gently

    ranting about single page applications

    While I understand that in theory, a single page application done right enhances user experience:

    - almost nobody does it right because it is way, way harder to write a SPA than a "traditional" web app
    - almost every list of justifications I see for SPAs focuses more on benefits to DEVELOPERS rather than benefits to USERS
    - SPAs seem to be optimizing for streamlining sites that are full of adtech

    Jordan Schnitzer: real estate developer, patron of the arts, philanthropist, utter piece of shit, and arguably the most powerful person in Portland.

    portlandmercury.com/blogtown/2

    While Schnitzer stressed that he truly cared about Portland's homeless population, few of his statements reflected that passion.

After shaking a box full of syringes and chiding "addicts" in his initial statements, Schnitzer told the group of reporters: "Speaking of junkies, I am one!" With the VOA alumni standing behind him, Schnitzer explained how he was a "junkie" for philanthropy work and sitting on the boards o

    i feel like the fact that right wing news organizations will point to a bit of graffiti that says "no fascism usa" and take it as:

    - an attack on the president of the usa
    - persecution of evangelical christians
    - a sign of an impending alt-left uprising that must be defended against

    means something has gone *very* wrong

    Californians: Remember, the reason we have to shut off your power is because we CEOs decided our bonuses were more urgent than the T&D repairs and tree trimming that could have prevented these wildfires. And the reason you can't control your own energy company is because socialism doesn't work and would result in blackouts and disasters.

    if you've read about the Hearthstone player getting banned from competing and losing his prize money for support democracy in Hong Kong you might also like to know that people are making art with Blizzard character supporting Hong Kong since it will probably cause Blizzard to get banned in china like they did to Winnie the Pooh.

    spoopy dream

    I had a dream last night I was looking at a for rent apartment and while walking around in it I felt a strong tapping on my chest and back, strong enough to make that hollow thudding noise you can do, y'know?

    When I moved my hand to where the tapping was and looked, there was nothing there, yet the tapping continued.

    When I looked in a mirror, I saw a disembodied arm (in the sleeve of a blue business shirt) coming from behind my shoulder, with the hand tapping my chest.

    blood pressure, hrt, supreme court anxiety

    I take my blood pressure every week since starting T just to make sure it's not getting too high (it's usually right around normal)

    but today while checking it I somehow ended up daydreaming about the supreme court ruling and being declared legally not a person. surprise! it was 138/89

    so, I took it again, instead forcing myself to think about my cat instead, and it went back to 116/77

    brains and bodies, man. anxiety ain't good for ya.
