sexism, racism, xenophobia, local politics 

the county judge of harris county is a young colombian-american democratic woman, so conservatives on the internet are able to be all of racist, sexist, xenophobic, and age condescending towards her. it's like a bigot quadruple whammy.

Fear me! For I have Carcass Harvesting 5, and can strip a completely frozen bear carcass with my bare hands!

My cat is asleep in a box near my desk, snoring, and it is the most adorable thing in living memory.

My favorite bit of early-UNIX history trivia:

uspol reminder for my fellow white lgbt activists 

It's important to celebrate today's important Supreme Court win. When we wake up tomorrow feeling refreshed, please remember that the "Title VII" that's the subject of today's ruling and the "Title IX" that was in last week's news refer to sections of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

I am now 1-3-2 against bears in survival mode.

Mauled by yet another bear, but not eaten.

I hid in a car.

The Phantom River Malbec, from Chile, is a remarkably good bargain.
