hello.

i deal with being old through alcoholism and hopes of liver disease

liver disease is arguably one of the worst ways to die, drowning in your own blood

but at least the alcohol will make you feel better until then

many years ago I worked at a startup that was all young guys out of college and one ďold manĒ that we hired. one of his better quotes was ďIíve got socks older than that girlĒ.

I am older today than he was at the time. and Iím pretty sure Iíve got articles of clothing that are older than some of my colleagues.

i hope that guy knows you are not supposed to keep socks for twenty years

yeah a few months back I went to a synthwave night with a couple buds and despite being the oldest there probably by about double the music was chill and the venue was 8pm-11pm. There is a followup night tonight but it starts at 11pm and goes on to 3am in an actual nightclub, I have to pass.

it is a shame that the numbers are so hard to come by and compare, as this comes up now and then and it is always a bit of a puzzler that the us is so big on vaccinations against the flu. my home country does very little of the sort, except when i worked for a us company which kept insisting that we get vaccinated. i ascribed that to a cynical attempt to lower sick leave at the time, but it is apparently just broadly american.

universal healthcare vs. not makes it really hard to actually look at any statistics and see anything which is not more directly explainable by that however.

getting the flu sucks, and it can be genuinely dangerous for a significant segment of the population

what savage place doesn't encourage everyone to get vaccinated

do you just like seeing old people die of a common communicable disease

in europe? every place. it is a matter of seniors, and in a few cases some groups of kids.



which is sort of the point, it'd be interesting to see the numbers disentangled a bit (i.e. the us' being pretty poo poo for entirely unrelated reasons), to see the resulting outcomes.

woo nice trackballing

I switched to the elecom pro after deciding resoldering switches for my old logitech trackman wireless wasnt worth the time and costs. i feel pretty glad to see it last long enough to be discontinued and join the ranks of septuple priced 1 in stock amazon trackballs of yore

the thumb ones are hard for me to use though and the mouse bounces around like i have a sudden bout of thumb tremors

my only complaint about the kensington is that it's a pain to clean. (but i guess that's true of all trackballs, isn't it?)
