getting a steam deck + bluetooth keyboard and writing it off as a replacement for my laptop

It is entirely too nice outside for anything except partying, let's cancel our meetings, grab the cooler and Bluetooth speaker, and go play cornhole

public transport opinion 

Okay self-driving cars seem like a really good idea, but I don't think they're ready to use on the open roads yet. I'd suggest keeping them on a fixed route where no other vehicles can go to minimize risk of collision.
We should probably have fixed places where people can get on and off. The cars come in, open their doors, let people enter and exit, and then continue on their journey.
Speaking of which, we should probably also make them larger to increase efficiency and again, to minimize risk of accidents.
We could even couple several of them together into one combined vehicle.
And since they're only going on a fixed route anyway, it makes more sense to use steel wheels on steel rails instead of rubber on asphalt.
I know it's an outlandish concept, but I'm convinced it might work really well if we ever get to try it out on a large scale

police, white supremacy, philosophy 

In "The Avant-Garde of White Supremacy," Steve Martinot & Jared Sexton argue that through impunity & spectacular violence, "the police become a law onto themselves." This, in turn infects all governmental structures which, "act in accordance with the paradigm of policing--wanton violence legitimised by strict conformity to procedural regulations" (171).

got my brain in a loop where i whistle the little intro stinger from pac-man, and when itโ€™s done i start quietly saying โ€œwaka-waka-waka-wakaโ€

i shake my head at the goofiness and stop, but a minute later i do it again

do yโ€™all think i can fix this with a reboot or do i need to reset to factory defaults?

im so hopelessly internet-addled that i just tried to thumbs-up a headline on a news site. fuck.
