Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.

Okay so Roombo decided to crap out on me so we're switching gears a bit and trying a Twinstick called "NeuroVoider"

Havin' a bad brain day so I guess I'll stream a dumb Humble Bundle game.

Roombo: First Blood

Hey friends.

Remember yesterday when I lost my mind because my new game, Journey Away, was live for sale?

Well, in the time since then, somebody's decided to crap on it with a 1-star review without even seeing the game first.

As a tiny publisher without a widely-known brand, letting that bit of trolling be the face of my first big product could ruin me.

If you like the game, please remember to leave a review. It could really make a difference.

Fit bits are just Tamagotchis for adults but turns out you're the blob you're trying to keep alive.

Using the modern web doesn't feel empowering. It feels immensely frustrating.

The web is barely usable without ad-blocking. Pages take an age to load and the content jumps around as more ads download and display. Also the ads are spying on you.

The entire JS ecosystem is dependency hell and sometimes you have to download massive JS files just to view a web page. The JS is probably also spying on you.

Worse still, JS is also probably why the Back button doesn't work properly on so many sites.

If you're in the US:

Don't just wake up on Tuesday and decide whether to go vote. Make PLANS to vote. Some folks' lives depend on it.

Make it a priority. As much as is possible, plan the other aspects of your life AROUND the fact that you're gonna go vote. Make it a given.

I finally got that cooking blog started! Thanks in large part to @Wsteria talking about cooking eggs this morning.

Cooking Without Spoons
A cooking blog for when you Just Can't

There's not much on it yet but I have a bunch of posts already planned to put on it over the next few weeks, now that the hard part is done and it's set up.
