Easily the best seats I've had for a baseball game...today is the day I'll learn the game, I'm sure!

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.

@skipfordj It's hard to see, but there's a good couple of inches on each side and above. I'm banking on that being enough 🤞

@eilatan I'm really happy with how they've turned out. These are my practice runs for built in shelving in the library and new cabinets throughout the kitchen

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!

re: privacy and Javascript 

@22 @nolan @bookandswordblog I have a hard time referring to removing basic functionality as "craftsmanship"

The creator isn't the arbiter of the effectiveness of the design, the user is. When we, as an industry, add bloat and complexity for reasons that don't benefit the user in any meaningful way (and in many ways injure user experience) then we're building bad software.

re: privacy and Javascript 

@22 @bookandswordblog all of this that you're describing, though, is foisting off the developer's inexperience on the user. That's a bad web app. If there are elements of basic usability that don't have to be client-side that are exclusively client-side, that's bad implementation.

I'm not talking about elements that require client-side work, but websites who just show broken images without js (or nothing at all) are bad.

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.

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?
