800 words in the voice of Lady Ada Byron, Countess Lovelace, for the McGuffin at the end of an upcoming adventure, The Ada Equations.

Gay pride exists because people before me rioted against oppression.

Straight pride exists because people are angry they can't oppress us like they used to.

"Dogged deference to nonviolent resistance, even when it’s no longer effective, and admonishment of violent resistance, even as a last resort, only serves the oppressor. Reducing a complex and evolving resistance movement into the simplistic categories of either democratic opposition or crazed terrorists, when the reality is far more complicated, only serves the oppressor. Bemoaning all international military intervention as imperialism, even if it is to save a people being eradicated by imperialists, and proclaiming non-intervention as neutrality, even as those being butchered cry out for help, only serves the oppressor. Seeing refugees as a problem population, instead of seeing the tyrants who create them as the problem, only serves the oppressor. Blaming a few bad eggs for acts of police brutality, while exonerating and canonizing the violent institutions that create, protect, and reward those bad eggs, only serves the oppressor."

More information about hugelkultur, which uses available carbon rich plant matter as the basis for a raised bed.

Building a hugel is one way to practice carbon sequestration on a small scale. The carbon they this tree ate up from the atmosphere will be captured in the soil and used to grow more plants that will then consume more carbon from the atmosphere.

Imagine doing this on a massive scale, burying carbon rich matter in our agricultural fields to regenerate the soil's carbon supply and prevent the release of more C02

"If the fascist could be reasoned with, he wouldn’t exist in the first place. But, by word or endeavor, you will let him know that you see through his mask and you see his fear. His shivering, quaking, bowel-voiding fear. He shall be judged.

This Signal Kills Fascists. Repeat the Signal.”

The whole idea of "getting a job" is backwards. Under capitalism, you cannot get a job, or find work. You must instead convince the bourgeoisie that you are useful and that they should let you use a position they have created. You cannot get a job, you can only indenture yourself.

When I was small, I honestly thought my silent friends danced on the air, spinning and swaying with ethereal grace around the old oak tree out on Clement Hill.

But that's the thing about growing, learning and seeing with comprehending eyes.

They were not dancing; they had never danced with me, bare feet dangling about my ears as I skipped between them, giggling.

No, they were not dancing.

At 17, one midnight, I freed them with flames.

Phew. Put beans on in the crock pot first thing. Made a store run this morning, bought a few groceries and a set of sheets. Put that away. Did laundry, including new sheets. Put laundry away, changed sheets on bed. Wrote 1500 words on Venlietche. Made a batch of rajma. Backed up my FB account and did a final where to find me post. Will delete account tomorrow. Played some Minecraft. Did dishes. Still have packaging of rajma to do and final cleanup.

954 words and the Scout and Smith are done. approaches pre-beta test editing. I have a to do list, and some changes that need to be done, and a consistency check, and then we're looking at the patrons being invited to build characters.

569 words and the Scholar is done for . Looks like I'm going to meet my page count, even with having removed the headings from the Profession subsections and collapsed a page out of the Table of Contents as a result. spelled right this time
