The two finished pieces from today, plus a close up of my favorite two fishies--Bert and Ernie. Amazing work by Jess at Watchtower Tattoo Company again.

The first of today's work...a little Escher inspired geometry!

The results of today's work. Today I learned that the calf is far ouchier than expected. Related, I was only able to do the one piece today. As always, Jess did amazing work!

Starting day 2 of my leg "sleeve"...first up, a calf piece.

Finally finished and installed the cabinet over the fridge. All I have left to do is build and install the doors, which I hope to do this week.

The start of my leg sleeve...I love every bit of this! Jess at Watchtower Tattoo Co does amazing work! ❤️

Today is day 1 of my next tat project, a leg sleeve (photos coming soon)...but let me say that knee tats are not a good time, in case you were curious. So far no part of the thigh or knee is the joyous occasion I was hoping for!

da, abuse 

1. I believe Heard is a victim of abuse by Depp
2. I believe she abused Depp
3. I believe she's likely lying about some of the specifics of #2

Numbers 2 & 3 are likely trauma responses; stop with the misogyny around this.

Sweden formed laws against hate speech in 1949. That's a few years after WWII, as you'll notice.

At that time, most other countries had anti-nazi laws. Sweden refused to establish any such laws, and pointed at Freedom of speech.

Now, since it was allowed to print nazi propaganda in Sweden, a lot of people started doing that, and then mailing the stuff abroad.
Other countries, who were more anti-nazi, didn't like this. They put pressure on Sweden, and we got our laws against hate speech.

Those laws exist because Sweden was a beacon of Nazi propaganda, and other countries put pressure on us.

One of the coolest parts of going over to @spartan318's place to play Marvel Crisis Protocol is getting to play with beautifully crafted and painted settings and miniatures. Look at this!

Web developers: take a moment to turn off javascript on your websites. If it can't be used at all--especially if the user is confronted with a blank screen--without js support, fix it. It's a bad website.

PSA: I'm going to be spamming this link a LOT because a lot of motherfuckers need to see this...

On the plate in front of you lies two slices of toast, side by side. Fried eggs sit atop one, peanut butter is spread on the other. Are you looking at two unrelated things, or an abomination known as an open-faced, peanut butter and egg sandwich?

At long last, my reservation for a Steam Deck came up! Soon I will while away my free time video-gaming from a totally different place!

Oh hell yeah! That top line alone is hot, but so many great bands on each day. Looking forward to some Trio, Yellowcard, Descendents, SK, Ice Cube, and tons more...

Well, you cannot for ALMOST any reason. Without Roe v Wade, you can be compelled to sacrifice that autonomy if you are pregnant and you live in a state that does not protects a pregnant person from being used as a brood mare.

You know, because life is sacred.

It does not matter that you were an active participant in someone needing your organs, it does not matter that you're at fault, it doesn't even matter that you no longer need the organs because you're dead. You cannot for any reason be compelled to sacrifice autonomy over your body and its parts.

The family of your victim rallies almost immediately. Surely, now that you've passed, they can get your life-saving kidney. In this case, your death changes nothing--you weren't a registered organ donor and your family is inclined to honor your implied wishes. Your organs die with you. Even in death, your bodily autonomy is unassailable.

Out of the blue, your situation take a sudden turn for the worse. In the span of minutes you go from talking with your family at your bedside and impatiently asking when you can get moved out of the ER to being pronounced dead by a tired doctor at your bedside.

Ultimately, you make the call that you can't bring yourself to do either thing. There are many reasons that you use to justify your decision, but none of that matters--it's your call and only your call. The family of your victim goes from begging to threatening lawsuits, but there's nothing they can do. Your right to bodily autonomy is absolute. No court can compel you to use any part of your body to save the life of another person for any reason.
