I'm kind of tempted by https://motorcyclecloseouts.com/scorpion-exo-st1400-carbon-red-helmet/. A carbon fiber ECE helmet for under $300 would be nice.

@sirber I know that it's pretty widely considered a bad movie, but I kind of liked it.

I think that I just saw one of the yard cats run by carrying a dead mouse in their mouth.

@sirber @joe Considering the fact that bluesky is desperate to get somebody to use it, they should have spent a little bit of time on their API. I wasn't expecting it to be as complicated as it is.

@sirber @joe Agreed.

Before I left BR, I was 4 days away from an internal review for a project that I had spent the past year on and was really excited about. I'm really curious what happened with the thing.

@nocontexttrek I was watching Total Recall the other day and had an "Oh, shit! That's Gul Dukat!" moment.

Over the past month, I've been spending a lot of time in libraries. The North Shore Library sure is depressing compared to Cedarburg and Whitefish Bay. 🤨

Here's how to make green even greener. Put the tram tracks on a carpet of grass or sedum. 2 kms of track creates 1.5 football fields' worth of green space, reducing air pollution and urban heat island effect.

Buy special Bibles from your golden calf, Christians.

@JuliusGoat Deuteronomy 4:2 ("Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.") and Proverbs 30:5-6 ("Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.") are pretty clear on God not being in favor of adding the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, song lyrics and the Pledge of Allegiance to the bible

@rasterweb I'm unfortunately fully expecting v3 to either be subscription-only or do the thing where there is a perpetual license option but it's so expensive that it's a little ridiculous.

My evening movie marathon:

  • Total Recall (first the original and then the remake)
  • Demolition Man
  • Escape from New York

I'm not sure if there is a theme.

joe,
@joe@toot.works avatar

@sirber Yeah, in 2012. Douglas Quaid is played by Colin Farrell and I read that it's closer to the book. It's pretty universally disliked but I like it.
