Perhaps I should have waited to drink until after all the cooking got done. Or at least until after I had something to eat. #Drunksgiving
We all know the War on Drugs was a targeted racist policy. This is simply fact.
What's interesting to me is how we, white folks especially, still carry those biased connotations with them to this day, even as we allegedly shift to a more weed friendly society.
The Al Harrington story is just one example of how he's really doing some good for a lot of people, but white folks still desperately cling to their biased beliefs in some way.
They can't just let it go.
Wow, FB and Google were explicitly condemned by Amnesty International: "Google and Facebook's insidious control of our digital lives undermines the very essence of privacy and is one of the defining human rights challenges of our era"
Nothing warms my integrated circuits like a long, nerdy phone call with my programmer dad!

A few things became quite apparent after only a few days:
1. There are huge networks of (seemingly) fake accounts that like and retweet each other's posts. Someone is operating this at a _massive_ scale.
2. Reporting and banning fake accounts seems futile. You're fighting a hydra that spawns new accounts quicker than one can report them.
3. I'm feeling sick to my stomach just browsing through the logs.

Nerilso G. Bocchi and Romeu C. Rocha-Filho, at the Federal University of São Carlos, have translated my reproduction of J. F. Hyde's spiraling Periodic Table into Portuguese, and made it into a
to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev's table. 🍾
And they did a super good job too! One of them has got SERIOUS vector graphics chops. It was probably a pain in the butt to do! I'm super impressed.
