@Gina poor t-rex, his arms are too short to vote!

@brion I like that you didn't include:

* stop before getting the Gulf of Mexico

Because... it doesn't matter. You're underwater both ways!

Trying to explain the difference between Dallas and Houston:

Dallas: tornadoes
Houston: hurricanes

See, it's easy!

@Karlitschek left wondering if IRBs for researching on human subjects should also include data practices for the data on those subjects.

@Greg Ah!!!

I've never tried to set a background, but now that I know I can't I'm upset!

@n8 I'm confused, then which team is God rooting for?

uspol, taxes 

@noelle it is mind blowing to me that this isn't the case. And now with the increased standard deduction it should be so much simpler.

Former colleagues described him as a "complete wacko" and racist; but, he kept his job. No telling how bad he made working at TI for minority employees. This is where folks in the majority need to speak up, we're the ones that need to push these people out.

Directions from Dallas to Amarillo involve taking US287 for 212 miles. Google Maps helpfully notes a Pizza Hut at 106 miles of that.

Article talks with homeless folks about why some of them chose to avoid shelters. Not something I'd realized is a barrier to solving homelessness.

Houston changes bail system to not punish people for being poor, proves that it works. Texas state government seeks to ensure the poor are punished, because... talking points.

What hurts business more than anything is uncertainty. By not having a statewide mask mandate individual businesses have to make this choice and take the backlash and risk themselves.

@laura I think (most, all?) password managers can do TOTP today.

I use KeePass, but I'm looking to switch to BitWarden when I get the time that does as well.

vaguely snarking about politics, TX - 

@RussSharek it might be most therapeutic to list them individually by name.

Disgusted at the lack of leadership, and effectively punting to corporate leadership for people's well being.

It's criminal. Luckily we have an election of most of these folks coming up.

@paperdigits @inkscape hehe.

Honestly thought we'll have to wait until after the contest is over. Then we can start to look at other things to do with the awesome entries.

If the governor wants businesses to show leadership (because he won't) it is time to start bringing class-action lawsuits against employers who create dangerous work environments by not having a mask-mandate for customers.

Didn't realize the US gov't had numbers for the price of carbon. Would love to see this model grow and get the updates suggested by the academy of science.

The article has this great quote: "The use of coal is simply exporting far too many future costs on society; its current use is only economical because we pretend those costs don't exist."
