Exam Heck

Exams begin Thursday and last into next week.  Additionally, it appears that one of my classes was actually in the sociology department and so requires APA style as opposed to Chicago/Turabian. Fortunately, I've been given the option of re-submitting it...


Experimenting, training, testing and retrying. My life is just like this picture, but without the respectability, cute girls, cutting edge tech and prototype karatebot.

Baltimore

What I'm seeing on television now is truly dispiriting. The police seem completely overmatched and the people of the city are helpless before the mob. The mayor's behavior has been bizarre: An hour ago, I watched a fellow show Fox's Leland Vittert where he had been struck with bean bags (after throwing bottles at police). Vittert asked him if he intended to stay out and continue to protest. The fellow said that he intended to but "of course, if they imposed a curfew we'd have to respect that."
At that point I learned that the curfew isn't in effect yet.
Why?

Baltimore was much more important to the history of this nation than is generally appreciated. In addition to being the city that stopped the British advance up the coast in 1812, it is the place where, thanks to Lord Baltimore, religious freedom was first made the law of the land in North America, 366 years ago last Tuesday. 

...and now it burns.

Almost Finished

...but not quite.

Thus, there is no content here, just a red bean bun...

Slight Reprieve

Posting will continue to be intermittent, perfunctory and generally inconsequential. 

As compensation for this, as well as the banality beneath the fold, here are Hanako, Rin and Paddlefoot

Apropos of Nothing

 
"Nothing at all."

Miki here is a game sprite and as such can't be doxxed, fired, DDOSed or otherwise struggled against in any meaningful way. 
Oh, and on a completely unrelated note, she is totally the one who pointed out to me this Harlan Ellison rant from 1994.

It Seems That I Had Misinterpreted the Situation

It's not that the Russian government is expansionist.

RUSSIA is.
