healthcare dystopia 

Just talked to a relative who's local to me, and touched on the potential for Washington to get universal healthcare.

Crazy to me how people will argue up and down against their own best interests.

For context, the relative I talked to suffers from chronic migraines and other persistent health issues, making it necessary for them to regularly visit doctors for checkups.

They're not employed but when I brought up the possibility for universal healthcare, they complained that it would mean income taxes going up, and didn't see how not paying private insurance would offset the tax load.

This is from someone who would hypothetically only benefit from a universal healthcare system. They still didn't want to have anything to do with a conversation on its benefits.

@Retrograde @djsundog Or slide off one of them. The only thing holding the plastic rail onto the pins is friction.

new #gemini search provider is now available for public testing

gemini://geminispace.info

It's powered by the same piece of software as GUS, so usage should be quite familiar.

Please feel free to try out and report back if you find any glitches.

This image from CNN looks like Clinton, W, and Obama are about to drop their first album.

I really really want to listen to this album.

I was talking to Danielle about old friends, wondering out loud what they're doing and where they're at. one of the friends went by the name "yonderboy" and, when I spoke his name, his handle, out loud I had an epiphany. we, us older cyber citizens, the early settlers of the big-I-Internet are a kind of rhyme to the hippies of the 60s. they thought outside the box, they disbehaved and freaked the squares, and they carried with them new names. Flower Child. Moon River.

We carry new names with us. Mendax. Count Zero.

It's telling when you try to set up FreePBX, and everybody and their backup just downloaded the Raspbian respin. And the devs recommend it, too.

@calcifer That's a really good idea. Can you recommend one that's, say, four feet long? One that's not dodgy Chinese crap?
