Self-promotion, link to writing
Where I'm gonna put up PDFs and ODTs of short stories, probably all set in the Colonized Earth universe. Maybe more organization will come later, IDK.
Stages of me being drunk:
Stage 1: Drinking, this gonn' be good
Stage 2: Buzzed, fun and fuzzy
Stage 3: Wheeeee!
Stage 4: So, like, you're great
Stage 4.2: Like, OMG how are all the people I know so awesome? u.u
Stage 5: Gosh I hope they know they're awesome. I should tell them. Am I being sappy? SAP IS HOW MAPLE SYRUP IS MADE THEY NEED TO KNOW
Made it safely to my destination. Huzzah!
Made it on the flight
Nothing healthier than macrodosing caffeine at 1am.
Made it to the gate. 3 hours till takeoff
Made it to the airport, yay. Departure in 4 hours. Ish.
Things my childhood education prepared me for:
- Encountering quicksand
- Being on fire
- Being offered to buy drugs randomly
- Doing math
Things I've had to deal with as an adult thus far
- Quicksand (once, on a hike in rural Alaska alone. It was more of a "huh, that's what that was" than the vital threat it had seemed to be as a kid)
NFT, blockchain thoughts
"We have a problem."
"Digital things are functionally infinite and there's no scarcity to be found."
"How is that a problem?"
"We need to restrict it."
"Oooookay....? Still not sure how lack of scarcity is a pr—"
"I've invented a number that says I alone own this digital thing."
"What? By what authority?"
"Because I wasted a crapton of energy to make this number."
"I'm a genius"
".... So you're wasting resources to invent a number for the sole purpose of restricting access to otherwise-functionally-unlimited things?"
"It's the future."
Aviation, private checkrides and tests
Private pilots have it a bit easier. They need a flight review every 24 months, and a medical exam every 36. There are some asterisks and edge cases in those.
Private pilots who fly under instrument flight rules still need to ensure they're current every 6 months.
Aviation, commercial checkrides and tests
Gotta have a test to make sure we can still fly properly every 12 months. Gotta make sure you're instrument current every 6 months. Gotta make a doctor's appointment with a special doctor every 12 months if youre below 40, 6 months if you're 40 or older, to make sure you're still healthy enough to fly.
genderpol, "super straight" thoughts
I love that "super straight" was originally a trans person's stand-up routine about how a "super straight" person wouldn't care about the trans-ness of the other person, and the fascists have turned it into how a they absolutely /do/ care about the trans-ness of the other person.
Like, it'd be like if they took "libertarian" to mean "neo-feudalist" or "socialist" to mean "fasc—"
Writer, pilot, current boring person. Asexual nerd furry. Non-binary or genderfluid, potentially? Still working on that.
