โš ๏ธ Info about Racists Rallying in Philly next week. Contains Birdsite and FB links. 

On Nov. 17, The Proud Boys and such have planned a march on the area around Independence Hall and the National Museum of American Jewish History.
Personally, I am not amused.
If youโ€™re like minded and able, go make some noise and drown them out.
Information in Birdsite thread below.

smart things, planned obsolescence  

I don't want smart TVs, smart fridges, smart whatever, I want plain dumb and easy to repair things without planned obsolescence

I have a plain dumb bike that I repair every so often with a 5โ‚ฌ adjustable wrench that fits in my pocket, in at most three minutes if I don't need to change an air chamber

It's cool because it's cheap, it's cool because I don't have to buy a new bike everytime the chain goes off, it's cool because I get to do something with my own hands, it's cool because even if it's too complicated for me I can just go and ask anyone who knows how to repair it, not a certifiedโ„ข repairer for my bike brand that may not exist anymore or not be present in my neighborhood

OK, Toot friends, what talk should I put together in the next two days? On my mind lately: wedding planning tips, collaborative web design, first time home buying, mental health for people in tech or managers....what do you think?

Everyone keeps saying Amazon would've brought jobs to their city. People have been saying it around here in Philly. But the kind of jobs it would've brought in would've benefited highly paid tech workers from outside of the region who would be moving to the area for the first time.

Iโ€™m freezing and soaking wet, but I voted.
My rewards are a snuggly dog, hot tea, a toasty heating pad, and, hopefully, control of the House.

Vote. 

I have never offered my unsolicited opinion about an election, but this year I ask you to vote against anyone that toes the party line for Trump. This is not about his policies, the Republic can weather a president that doesn't reflect my personal views. However, I honestly believe that this President represents a clear and present danger to the Constitution.

Our vendor mis-printed a batch of @indyhall hoodies with orange letters instead of gold.

Or did they!?

Now available for a limited time, a GRITTY edition of Indy Hallโ€™s famous stitch letter hoodies:

politics / Wawa vs sheetz 

I honestly thought it would have been the other way around, but this sucks nonetheless.

Guess I'm done with Wawa now.

"Haven't you read that book before?"
"Yes, I have," said the robot.
"So why read it again? You can't have forgot it."
"No. But I want to compare my reactions now and then."
"Why?"
"To learn about myself."
"There are special books for that."
"All books can be for that."

Politics 

Wow, PA Republicans are getting real hardcore with the smear on Scott Wallace.

They must be desperate.
