Back to school. Back to school. Back to learn the golden rule. Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight.

Hmm... My jeans seem to have shrunk sometime during 2020.

Yesterday morning, MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart shared these thoughts from Dr. King on conscience:

"Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?'"

Over the past four years, we have paid the price for cowardice, expediency and vanity.

As we celebrate Dr. King's legacy and pull back the curtain on a new tomorrow, I hope we all have the conscience to do the right thing. #MLKDay2021

Just had a talk with my boys about racism and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. They're 7 this year. It wasn't easy to communicate these things. Hopefully, I did OK. :blobawkward:

Good day, fediverse. And happy Saturday!

I just learned what 51% and Dr. Evil attacks are.

I just realized yesterday was my one year fediversary. That's a thing, right? :blobcatbirthday:

The U.S. government is trying to ram through a midnight regulation to increase surveillance of cryptocurrency transactions. Our friends at @fightfortheftr have a tool that lets you submit comments - check it out. stopfinancialsurveillance.org/

The earth is at perihelion today, or closest distance to the sun. 147,093,163km this go-around. Sometimes mistakenly attributed with giving us our seasons, which comes from the tilt of our axis.

(Also my first scheduled toot! :blobcat_pat:)

Found this fun project on Zooniverse...

"The distinct sound of the Caribbean steelpan is due largely to the interconnections between notes on the pan. We need help classifying vibration patterns so that we can learn more about how this drum works."
