Yet another post of random stuff that spurted forth from my prefrontal cortex and/or temporal lobe. Additional credit due to my limbic system.

Only by looking in the dryer can we truly expect to find our lip balm.

Because there is way too much love in the world, here are Things I Hate:

That the only power jack on a Mac is on the left side which is always the wrong side

People saying they are vegetarian “except…”

Judges who sentence whistleblowers to 5 years in prison for releasing the tax records of billionaire tax cheats and say the whistleblowers are as bad as the January 6th insurrectionists and go on to lament that they were only charged with one count.

People who are reformists until they are in positions of power and then they personally identify with the institution they serve and become its apologist and protector

Founders of ostensibly progressive organizations who suffer from founder’s syndrome and should just get out of the way

Ego-maniacal benevolent White overlords of institutions serving People of Color

People being in favor of peace only between wars

The person who came up with the term “eco-terrorist”

Probation officers, cops, prosecutors, judges, parole board members and anyone else in the “justice” system wielding practically unchecked power over others.

Absurdly short cords for appliances
