Hello All! Finally, an intro..

I try not to be "your average old white guy", but I don't always succeed. I am learning to be better.

A warning: I'm snarky (irreverent, sarcastic)

We have cats, or course, to meet the internet requirements. I will probably be sharing pictures in the future.

I am in to:

I believe in , but would it matter if I didn't? I would still fall down.

I believe that is an existential threat to all of us and to much of the life on earth. It will change life on the planet substantially. The tardigrades will be fine.

I enjoy and . I believe in , , , .

Wow. That doesn't leave much for anyone to figure out about me.

So the adventure begins..

I have watched Dirty Dancing thousands of times. I can quote the entire film to you. What we all forget, is WHY Baby had to learn the dance.
Because Penny got knocked up. She got an appointment with a "legit doc" who could only see her on that night. Their entire livelihood depended on that show. Baby and Johnny do the show. Baby doesn't do the lift. They have a moment. They get back and hear, "He had a dirty knife and a folding table. I could hear her screaming from the hallway. I tried to get in Johnny, I tried." Penny almost died. Not because abortion was not available. Penny almost died because abortion was not legal. We do not live in a theocracy. Religious conviction does not write our laws. What I personally feel or believe does not give me the right to enforce those beliefs on others. This will not end like you think it will.

It is wise to listen to marginalized groups when they describe their threat model... particularly Trans folks, POC, and women.

They have been threat modelling their entire lives.

They are innately better at it than you. They have to be to be here telling you about it.

So put your shields down, and listen.

Good.

And it’s gun “safety” not “control.” Are seatbelt laws called “car control”? Of course not.

"New York signed stronger gun-control measure into law today.

The new laws will bolster existing ones and close what state leaders viewed as loopholes, including those that allowed the Buffalo shooter to slip through the state's Red Flag statute."

It's time for my #introduction

I spend most of my days with graphic design work at my studio or researching for my work with the German Cyborgs Society (Cyborgs e.V.)

My current interests are neurodiverse driven design and anything about the 20th Century cyberneticist Alice Mary Hilton.

In my free time I love #StarTrek, #TheExpanse, learning about advanced cooking and baking skills, and interior design. I love #Champagne and #Mixology

Split second? There were 4680 seconds before anybody bothered to do anything.

RT @JohnCornyn@twitter.com

The second guessing and finger pointing among state and local law enforcement is destructive, distracting, and unfair. Complex scenarios require split second decisions. Easy to criticize with 20-20 hindsight twitter.com/reptonygonzales/st

My Congressman CO-04 Rep. Ken Buck (R) posted this on social media yesterday during the Tulsa shootings. I kinda believe it shows he and the House GOP are irredeemable but hey, that’s just me. Will I use this screenshot against him though the November election…?

Hi!
I'm new to Mastodon ヽ(・∀・)ノ

Let me introduce myself:
I'm a French student who loves OpenBSD :openbsd:
I'm currently working on way too much projects at the same time and I mainly code in C.

I'll probably use tmtt@bsd.network once I got my account (I hope lol)

Have a great day :)

@TonyStark People are asked, at 18 years old, to take on debt for a degree that is the minimum requirement for most white collar jobs. Of course people do it. We need a reform of the whole system of charging ridiculous tuition and fees and making students go into debt at all.

It’s great if you want to be a plumber, carpenter, or mechanic. We need people in those professions. They often pay better than office jobs. They deserve equal respect. They require a skill set I don’t have. But not everyone wants to do them, and we need teachers, doctors, lawyers, and civil servants. Non-profit managers and employees, accountants, social workers, researchers, editors. All kinds of things. For a lot of those jobs you always needed a bachelor’s or higher, and for some you didn’t two generations ago, but now you do, even if you don’t really need one to be, say, an office manager. My mom is recently retired and has a high school diploma. Her replacement is someone my age with a master’s degree.

This bill is the most expensive I've seen so far with the upgrades from the past month. I'm currently working to bring down costs some more 💪 ❤️

@GreenFire Agreed. Of course, many of us live in gerrymandered places where our progressive, liberal votes don’t count. I vote blue, but living here I know it’s more a token vote than anything meaningful. Though that may be changing, Texas is more purple than ever lately.

I am voting for Beto in Texas and hoping this horrible moment turns around enough conservatives to kick out the current Texas government. We need more blue in Congress, too.

@MariaHill I’m in Texas, and while I’m definitely much more liberal than most around here, they are mostly against the Abbott idiocies (abortion bounties, social network policies, gun expansion, etc.). Most do not see a need for assault rifles.

The people who vote red seem mostly to be voting against blue rather than for red. For example, the racists are voting against the party of Obama and Harris. The fundamentalists are voting against change, which scares them. And on, and on - so it goes.

Which is worse? Null pointer exceptions in:

I need a job. Any computer touchers at a tech company hiring for a remote copywriter position? I can maybe be your girl!

So I've gradually opened up about this as the risk has decreased, but I think it's time I can publicly share something that happened to me this year:

I was part of an investigation into a possible violation of the CFAA. Or, more accurately, I was being investigated as a suspect.

TL;DR: I ethically disclosed an security vulnerability - SQLi leading to account info, plaintext passwords. That same issue was, according to the investigators, abused by someone (possibly me, they thought).

A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"We have heard of the wonders of Earth," the alien said, "so have come to experience..."
They began reading off a list.
"Chocolate. Chilis. Coffee. Cats. Cinnamon. Cloudberries."
"We have things that start with other letters too."
"What?"

"Where can I see the fair folk?" the artist said.
"Why?" said the witch.
"To paint the most beautiful people."
"If you're skilled, you already can. They're not 'beautiful', they just make you see their beauty, be they fat or thin, hale or hobbling."
"Yes. I want to learn to see."

I didn’t apply to any shows this year, including MICE. I’m sorry I’ll be missing the scene this year.

I’m always up to chat about work-for-hire & my store is always open - get in to us via my website w/ any qs: Varmazis.art

A little about myself: I enjoy coffee, many cups, black or with oat milk.

I'm also a web developer who codes in JavaScript (and CoffeeScript, back when it was more widely used).
