@daedalus I see your home handyman and raise you a McGuyver.

Last year the wind blew my study door shut and broke the mechanism. I freed myself using a paperclip, a needle file, and a butter knife Mr 9 slid under the door from the outside

@daedalus where are my glasses? Oh, they're right there. <smug intensifies>

COVIDー19 

It’s annoying to see the same people who dunk on climate change deniers for ignoring climate scientists totally disregarding infectious disease experts and acting like it’s all smoke and mirrors. I doubt it’ll kill 500,000,000 people — and maybe it WILL fizzle out — but there’s just not enough information out there yet to being making proclamations as laypeople. We don’t even know the r0 or CFR for certain. Listen to experts; it doesn’t hurt to be a *little* wary.

COVIDー19 

Just because coronavirus won’t be the next Spanish Flu doesn’t mean it can’t cause a ton of deaths due to preventable failures in global public health infrastructure. It’s understandable to be worried about the significant number of people with immunocompromisation or comorbidity. There’s a difference between blatant fear-mongering and listening to actual epidemiologists, most of whom are genuinely concerned that #COVIDー19 could, or will, become a pandemic.

Imagine if umbrella ownership didn't turn off that part of your brain that registers the existence of other people.
What a world that would be.

Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

I wear a stethoscope so that in a medical emergency I can teach people a valuable lesson about assumptions.

@sophia hard agree! Here's me and the other half at a recent steampunk gig.

@wobin @drbuttocks @scarydan @geordie I strongly recommend not leaving them in the foam trays and moving somewhere hot for five years. I have foam crumbs all over my minis

GPOY, boasting 

@wobin I considered it, but I wasn't wearing it for most of the night because the eye lenses kept fogging up.
