So work was a bit of a cluster today- but it seems life was a cluster for A LOT Of people today. Why? Today: An Amazon server outage caused problems for Alexa, Ring, Disney Plus, and deliveries So this means that a lot of automated things were not working today- IoT (internet of things) appliances, apps, schedulers. A lot of disruption. Wanna know what else happened today?: Amazon Alexa’s new eldercare service launches today Which to me is so inappropriately funny. Guess the old people might have been dropping like flies today if they had pre-signed up for Amazon's Elder Care program. https://youtu.be/NK9HXu9g5qA I am speaking more and more freely these days and now I am going to say something out loud that I've thought all along: I DO NOT LIKE THE CLOUD. I NEVER HAVE LIKED THE PUBLIC CLOUD. I DO NOT
But we're too busy trying to argue why it's okay for Congressmen to post-murder memes, and justify why it's okay to leave your state and travel to another with and AR-15 and shoot people in "self-defense".

I'm slowly starting to get more productive again.. but not to the level that I think is acceptable for me but slowly but surely, I seem to be getting back to what makes me, me. I've definitely been "Tekwh0re" lately. Won't go into too much detail about that but the NERD has been STRONG in this one lately. I've been doing more things to try to automate my life and secure some other aspects of it. I still have so, so, so much more to do, but its good to at least start to knock out shit that has been on the back burner. I have until January first to have all the shit automated and figured out so that my 2022 is the best year I've had in a long time, even with the
Humans continue to rape and pillage the Earth. This is really gross. Altaf Qadri/AP Photo " One of India’s most sacred rivers appears to be coated with a thick layer of snow. Except it is not. A vast stretch of the Yamuna river is covered with white toxic foam, caused in part by pollutants discharged from industries ringing New Delhi." Several people have been ringing the bells for a long time that collectively, as humanity, we've been fighting the wrong battles. Climate change is real. The toxification of our environment is real. There are very few places in the world that foam is natural in the water. This is not one of them. I was asked recently about "It's Complicated" and would I do them anymore. I said probably not- nobody was interested. However
Zero to one hundred! That's me! Live life by extremes and all that shit! Lots of stuff to unpack today. Let's begin. I worked out two days in a row (big whoop). I was going to go again today but when I left yesterday, my back was tweaked bad enough that I wasn't sure I could walk to the car. Now I know why- shit I forget about and when I get conditioned, feels like hell but once I get my shit back, will clear up. Two slipped disks in the back from Aikido years ago which ironically, once I can start to do deadlifts heavy and on the regular again, will get better pain-wise. But right now it's going to suck. That doesn't mean that I shouldn't work out. That means that I
I have been suffering from depression. I think it's borderline chronic. Again, no I don't need to see a professional- the problem is "other people" and I've gone over this a million times before over the years on my social media. Beating a dead, rotting horse brings me no pleasure, so I won't do it. Still, over the last week, I realized that I need help because I am deep in it. And the ONLY PERSON who will help me is well, me. There are a few things I identified that do not help.. a few of these things I think are getting better so maybe I can pull out of my tailspin. Whatever weird sick that has been going on affected my ablity to wear contact lenses. I don't wear them so I can't really see most the
Basically- if they don't do something about student loans I won't be able to retire and when I do, they will still be taking my retirement money and social security. Trump absolutely sucked but at the point, the Democrats only care if you are shit poor or have kids. They don't care about the middle class either.
Riders WATCHED as woman was raped on train. I just can't. Right now I just can't anymore. Why I want nothing to do with the human race anymore. I have it bad; this woman had it worse. I expect this shit in India. I don't expect it in the US. The world is a shithole. I honestly wouldn't shed a tear if I were up in space going somewhere else and watched the Earth burn. Once I would have
