Making It Matter 0

Hello, again, world. 0

It has been 7 and 1/6 years since I have written a post on this particular place on the internet, for no other reason than I did not feel the need to scream into the void. Oh, how times have changed.

Are we being judged? I feel like this is some sort of test…a serious one to be sure, probably like what SERE training is like, but with your family dying instead of just you, maybe? While not a ‘god fearing’ man, I am a believer in ‘more than us’, and I feel that someone in our cadre was just spotted by the casino floor manager with an ace up their sleeve and instead of giving that particular asshole a bruising, the man in charge decided to lock the doors and burn the whole building down.

I don’t know what this does, writing a thing on a blog with zero expectation of feedback or an outcome of any kind. I hope for catharsis. I hope for a future. God, wherever you are, I hope for hope. I have cried more in the past week than I have in years and I have two kids under 6. I have anger, I have despair, I have a blazing hatred for ineptitude that plagues beyond the nation I live in for which I have no outlet save for the internal monologue I keep going on the off chance it has some slight redeeming value beyond lying to myself.

But when I set it all down, all I have is love I want to hand out to anyone that needs it. I can’t believe this, but I know it to be true. And I am trying to save it, as I know for the near term all I will know is worse than what I know now.

I am so sorry fellow humans. I am so sorry.

William on Windmill - BBC

The extraordinary true story of a Malawian teenager who transformed his village by building electric windmills out of junk is the subject of a new book, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind.

Kinda late in posting this, but it’s cute nonetheless.

Telecom and Pandemics 0

Past, present and future, reality is shaped by our ability to communicate with each other. While in the past our national (and international) infrastructure has been built to withstand or recover from some harsh and unexpected events, such as natural disasters, there is a significant weakness in our system of thought on these matters: pandemics. So the FCC and Big Telco had a little talk about just that.

I want to write/think more on this, but workload doesn’t really permit currently. I’d love to hear other’s thoughts.

Totally ripping this from Mr. Blogomatt.

I hope you can see this… 0

because I’m doing it as hard as I can.

“These were Lite Brites – children’s toys that light up. The Mayor and the rest of the city government threw the city into a panic, when they could’ve solved the “crisis” by talking to a ten-year-old.

Good God. Wait until somebody leaves a Speak and Spell lying around. They’ll probably send in a hostage team to negotiate with it.” – Crooks and Liars

One of the coolest things I’ve seen in awhile.

FYI… Sickle cell anemia takes two genes for it to appear in offspring… most die before they can reproduce, why is it still in the gene pool then? one gene for SCE makes that person resistant to malaria.
