Finally maybe we'll finally beat this virus locally, after being the latest red zone for August 2020.

WHEN I WAS working at the CIA, if you had told me that there would soon come a youth rebellion that relied on lasers and traffic cones as sword and shield, and that it would come to paralyze one of the world’s richest and most powerful governments, I would have—at the very least—raised an eyebrow. And yet as I write these words nearly a decade later, this is exactly what's happening in Hong Kong, the city where I met with journalists to reveal the secret that would transform me from an agent of government into one of the world’s most wanted men. As it happened, the very book that you now hold in your hands lay on the desk, the desk of the last hotel room I would ever pay for with a credit card.

I'm a little slow on the draw here, it's been out since March 2020 but I didn't realize it existed until last night.

You will now see the subject of a message displayed in the end of the URL, this is called slugification, and helps search engines index the content on the page.

"Earthquakes happen, people die," said a former conspiracy theorist. "There isn't always a nefarious plot behind it."

"The unborn” are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn.
You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus, but actually dislike people who breathe.
Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn."

So Wikipedia now has what they are calling the List of Lists of Lists. Lots of interesting information.

This is really cool. A strange world where nothing is as it seems.

I think the biggest thing I am trying to point out is that right now today, no matter how many things we get rid of, tear down, destroy, or censor - none of us now are going to forget that these things happened. These things were not good. They are mistakes to learn from. But think in the future, 50 years down the road. People who are not even born yet may not know anything about these things happening. On the surface, that seems like a good thing.

On 4 October 1957, 14,000 people watched a large hangar on the outskirts of Toronto open to reveal a beautiful, large, white, delta-wing aircraft. The plane was the Avro Arrow interceptor. A third longer and broader than today’s Eurofighter Typhoon, the Arrow could fly close to Mach 2.0 (1,500 mph, or the maximum speed of Concorde), and had the potential to fly even faster. It was Canada’s Can$250m (US$1,58bn today) bid to become an aviation superpower.

One effect of the widespread protests across U.S. cities this week has been to renew discussions of what role the police should play in society.

Ok, this has been driving me crazy for seven movies now, and I know you're going to roll your eyes, but hear me out: Harry Potter should have carried a 1911.

Just a really cool version of Times Like These,  performed by a whole bunch of people quarantined at home. Also Dave Grohl and Tyler Hawkins playing the drums on a... Lava Lamp. Very strange that, but very good the song.

In their foolish hurry to open while covid 19 cases are still increasing at a terrifying rate in Nebraska, they spread the virus even more than it was spreading. This lead to "The Mutation", which is recounted to his grandchildren years later, as detailed below:

Enjoying the awesome new Windows Terminal? But run into weird issues once in a while where you type exit and instead of the window closing, it gives you this message: [process exited with code ####] Turns out that's by design for some reason. There's a way to stop that with a profile setting named closeOnExit so that it always closes on exit.

You have to be old enough to remember Abbott and Costello, and too old to REALLY understand computers, to fully appreciate this.

If we accept all the Star Wars films as the same canon (as it seems we must) then a lot that happens in the original films has to be reinterpreted in the light of the prequels. As we now know, the rebel Alliance was founded by Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bail Organa. What can readily be deduced is that their first recruit, who soon became their top field agent, was R2-D2.
