@thurloat If you start getting a bunch of ads for weird, algorithmically-designed t-shirts that say:
Yes, I am a
that means I
like my coffee black
I kick ass and take names
and agitate for democratizing

Then, yes, we've been cambridge anatlyica'd.

I answered "neutral/unsure" for *a lot* of the questions in this quiz, mostly because I thought there were a lot of false dichotomies that ignore real-life nuances. Sometimes I was also genuinely unsure.
Anyway, I guess I'm some sort of wish-washy centrist (which is probably pretty accurate, TBH).
Alternate careers I had considered:
- Novelist (lol)
- Funeral director
Alternate career I never considered until it was essentially too late:

@emsenn Season 9 was simultaneously kind of a mess and also the best season in years.
One thing that annoys me about the entire series, especially as they expanded the world to add the different communities, is that there is no coherent sense of scale. I have no idea how close to one another the communities are supposed to be, and I don't think the writers do, either, because travel time is ridiculously inconsistent and seems to be whatever the plot calls for.

Calendar year vs school year Show more
The start of the school year is a more meaningful "new year" than Jan. 1 for me.
Ever since I started school, the end of summer marked the end of a "year." Even the years before I started working for a school district (meaning my work year matches the school year, even though I don't actually get summers off), the start of fall marked the start of a new "year."
I feel like this is true for a lot of people, especially if they have children.
The fall winds are blowing in today. Soon, everything will be awash with pumpkin spice. That's what the fall winds carry: spice from the pumpkin patches.
"Fitness" Show more
Hoo boy, am I ever out of shape. I went to the pool with the family today and, for the first time in years I actually swam instead of just goofing around in the shallow end. I did one lane...and I am beat. Between that and walking up the stairs to the water slide a dozen times, I'm beat.
Maybe I should do lane swimming a couple times a week and become a lean beast. 😂
People on LinkedIn are really into this career LARPing thing, huh?
"Under socialism, we'd still have fast food" is a weird, though probably not inaccurate, take.
