I've been browsing through what passes for "useful" 3D printing plans. They're ridiculous: pencil holders, novelty showerheads, even paperweights. Where are the really useful things, like construction materials, furniture, and reusable packaging?

Are there good examples of second-tier creating benefit pools for their first-tier co-ops?

Our foster placement that was slated to be for two weeks is now at eight months, and could go much longer.

"Wealth inequality" isn't an abstract problem which came about from bad tax policies. Don't let the media pretend that it is. It is precisely because workers are relentlessly exploited and mistreated that billionaires exist. The inequality we endure would not exist in a world where workers are treated fairly.

I've been thinking about names for a GEO imprint. My current favorite is Twin Pens. The logo would be two fountain-pen tips arranged like the standard twin pines.

Roses are red,

Similarities between #DoctorWho and Bugs Bunny:
-- shows up by accident while trying to get somewhere else
-- finds himself in the middle of a plotline swiped from some well-known genre cliche
-- refuses to take the villains seriously at all
-- subverts the narrative logic of the genre by substituting his own, much sillier logic
-- makes the villain's plan backfire like some sort of trickster god
-- skeddaddles before he can face any consequences
