Forget labels.

Our battle can be boiled down to this:

Authoritarianism vs. freedom.

There are Liberals, Conservatives, fascists, AND so-called “Leftists” who support hierarchy/domination.

Everyone but the fascists claims to do so for “freedom.”

The thing about recovery is that in abstract I feel _fine_, but at the same time it takes all of my energy to just move through the sign-posts of the day. It's feels ridiculous. It's like being depressed but without the mood effects.

Every time I see "expected true but was false" I get very grumpy at people's tests. Means either the test framework or you aren't doing what your supposed to be. Your test failures should be friggin' descriptive.

It was still painful, 'cause I had just moved and started a new job after having taken a year and a bit off to learn web stuff. I was making maybe 30k a year at that point 'cause being a programmer in rural Maine in the 90s only paid well compared to the poverty in these towns.

I misread "pineapple" as "principal" when I first read this and thought it was some grade A snark, lol

Today a first grader told me that she doesn't need to learn what I'm teaching because she wants to be a pineapple when she grows up.

Hey @izs, just to double check before I go write this, but is there really no cli wrapper around node-tar currently? Easy enough to whip up, but no reason to double up the work if something exists somewhere?

During my recent stay in the hospital I:

Advised a nurse on how to dye her daughter's hair.

Talked Sailor Moon with another nurse because of @sailorhg's stickers.

Advised third nurse on gender inclusive group words and how to handle his child coming out as non-binary.
