I'm sailing with most of my cohort (or bubble, it is weird to me how variable our terminology for "group of people I am not socially distant from" is) and we keep having this moment where we have forgotten there is a global pandemic and everything is just extremely normal. This could be any ol' sail.

Guys. This is my first time running #windows10 . What are some cool and fun things for me to do to my system?

Ruinous answers preferred, fun answers only.

I work with people who straight up don't believe me that there are places I go with no cell service. No, not my plan, or my phone, none. Period.

This is the longest run I've ever had on duolingo and it's going to end tomorrow.

So there was this Twitter thread where some guy just said “give me your most radical left opinion” and at least half the responses were just things like “homeless people should be given homes” and “food is a human right.”

Just think about how badly you have to fuck up a society for basic human needs to be considered extreme

I feel like this ends with me running into the burning wreckage of a catastrophic accident with my 3x3in square of gauze, shouting "don't worry! I got this!"

I am packing up for a trip, and I'm refilling my little first aid kit, and I had this moment where I realized I should bring some gauze. I bought gauze a while ago, I should bring it with me, because you never know.

I feel like such an adult right now.

I made this postcard for a friend. Now feels like a good time to mail it.

My original plan was to make a box with a lid that sits on top. I'm glad I did it this way where the lid and one side (the spine) form the hinge otherwise I'd never get it out. It has ~2mm clearance.
