#GunsDownWaterGunsUp 

itsgoingdown.org/atl-police-gu

A self-organized movement dubbed, #GunsDownWaterGunsUp has spread to several cities in Georgia and over the next week is poised to branch out into other states. On social media, various organizers stated that the goal is to bring people together in public spaces and put a stop to gun related violence while also having fun; specifically while using water guns. The events are attracting youth as well as adults and are bringing people together across various neighborhoods and local towns.

^This shit looks amazing.. Spread this around, let everyone know, hell organize your own event for it. Change only takes place when you act on it.

If Plato comes out of his cave and sees his shadow we'll have 4 more months of perceptual imprisonment

What was the point of that dumb "undercover boss" show? These mega-rich CEOs put on a dumb mustache, demonstrate their complete ineptitude at labor and how hopelessly out-of-touch they are, then by the end they attempt to show some kind of empathy for two individual workers by giving them some money or paying for their college. Whitewashing how it's their own personal greed that makes these people poor, and they will never extend this basic empathy to their tens of thousands of other workers.

a while ago i bought a book about interior design published in the mid-late 80s. this is one of the pages in it

Aggregating recipes *is* super useful, but damn, does Yummly have terrible UI. Feels like Pintrest.

Welp, officially broke as hell. :blob_neutral_face: Time to look for a better job and try to sell off some crap, I suppose.

i'm not even getting that many hours at work but it feels like i just keep on having to show up

I think I'm getting attached to the 11" netbook. Only *real* downside is mediocre battery life. , but it fits in a bag like nothing and makes my 14" look huge. Think my next machine will be a 12".

stress 

so my supervisors mixed up my review and gave me last quarter's review again. plus my car broke down on the way home. just great.

was making some sketches for a font idea and then discovered an existing obscure free/libre font that's 95% how i wanted it and much better than i could have done. Oh well.

sometimes, self care is Not “treating yourself”

sometimes self care means saving your money or energy or time

don’t let capitalism fool you into thinking you have to buy things to feel better / that it’s the only way to care for yourself

they don't want you to know that the countdown on TV is 14 seconds behind real time :thonking:

🎊 happy new year, fellow GMT -5 fedifriends! 🎊
