This thing is beautiful (you need to watch the video with sound on to really appreciate it):
Whenever I read about identity theft I feel like we have the narrative completely backwards.
If someone applies for a visa in my name they haven't "stolen my identity", I'm still me and still living under my identity, they've defrauded visa.
By calling this identify theft we shift the responsibility from visa (to not give credit cards to randos) to us the public. We must now, somehow, protect an ineffable sense of "identity" based on public information that was never entirely in our control.

I've always preferred the company of freaks.
One thing I want to work on is resisting the urge to react externally to things unless I plan to *do* something about them.
If I don't have a play to make, I'm thinking it's probably better to just "pass" that round.
