New account, time for an .

I'm a white guy, more or less living at the top of Privilege Mountain, trying to learn to dismantle and undermine that privilege.

Things I'm into:

Things I'm (interested in?) learning about:

• And all the stuff above, naturally.

This is, of course, incomplete. 🤷🏻‍♂️

In 2018 (at 36), I realized my sexuality wasn't as straightforward (or straight) as I'd previously thought. It's more complicated because of course it is, but I generally consider myself bi/pan :heart_pansexual:.

Did my first attempt at some kind of beard shaping today. Like I literally just finished and probably need to go back and clean some stuff up, but I have to do a different thing first. I have no idea if it looks good or not.

Does anybody on here know much about Entity Component Systems? Especially outside the specific, deep context of performance gains? I’ve been thinking about it recently as a way that might guide service architecture design. But I’m swimming in new waters and would love some guidance.

I think Google should save everyone a lot of time and effort and jump straight to discontinuing new services:

"We are proud to announce that Google Kitchen Tools will no longer be available on Sep 1st 2020, nor has it ever been available. Should you wish to export your Google Kitchen Tools data, you should be aware that there is no data, as Google Kitchen Tools has never existed.

Realized that I post a lot on here sentences that should start with “I” but I just leave that first pronoun off.

Finished the Back the the Future trilogy with the kids tonight (I say it this way because both my wife and I have seen them all a billion times). The 5yo did way better than I expected spotting the cyclical nature of the narrative and the self-references. The 9yo, at the end of the third was like, “Wait! How did he built a time train in like ten minutes???” so we had to have a discussion of the implications of time travel on the subjective experience of time.

Re-releasing these because they keep changing / being improved:

at_ok and boost_ok for when these interactions are permitted by the poster.

dont_at_me (or at_no) and boost_no for when these interactions are not permitted by the poster.

You will have seen some of these before, this is nothing new, just rage love's version. Released under WTFPL. Please use them freely.

@ItsJenNotGabby I’m slightly upset that you’re the only appreciator of this post, but if it had to be just one person, it feels right that it’s you. 😜

I tried to crowfund a project, but it turns out they don't have a lot of money, so I didn't hit my goal.

Thought I heard a _seagull_ just now. Which do not, typically, live this far inland. But, no, it was a bluejay being weird and making weird sounds. The weird pastel-goth of the corvid family.

ironic transphobia is still transphobia, except you've decided it's fine

So @weredawgz suddenly reminded me of all the times Mega Ran has ever bodied a song, like that one time he took a Drake beat and challenged himself to list Mega Man boss names on it and it’s still flames:

I am neither high nor know anything about blaseball.
