Social media companies are going to be buried with liability in the next 5 years, they will all collapse and lose their business model.
I hope.
It would be nice.
I look forward to an era of vast and brutal consequences to balance this current streak of bullshiat.

I was in an entomology PhD program for several years. I was paid to identify arthropods for the state agricultural extension service. I never finished the doctorate (long story) but I learned a lot about insects and other wee beasties.

My taxonomic skills are rusty but not entirely lost. I identified all types of arthropods, but my research was on aquatic insects. I'm happy to help with insect/arthropod questions if I can.

I don't have a mortgage payment for another month, all card payed down, and have a lot of money in the bank/am about to collect rent on top of that. I finally graduated from paycheck to paycheck for the first time in my life.
Just realized that as I was tallying things getting ready to buy a car.. My whole farking life I've struggled working service industry jobs with little stability, I know own the house with a solid career and a future.
Time to see the psychiatrist and get the brain problems figured out. The anxiety and depression should have faded and mostly did, but the anxiety is still physically debilitating at times.

What a weird time to be doing well. I feel shiatty talking about it.

Copy pasta from Taylor

Okay, we're back from the vet and once again ensconced in a motel room.  They gave me some special food for both kids and a prescription for Taylor. Dissolve one half a pill in water and administer orally until gone. I was supposed to get a syringe but didn't. Guess I'm going to hunt down an eye dropper.

Doctor said to heat this food before feeding. Just keep an eye on them and call back on Thursday for follow-up instructions.

Had Ray's driver take me there and back, plus a ride to the bank for cash, to the dollar store for a bag of cat litter and box, and by Church's for supper. He charged me  $10 for all that.

I ate, figured out the the remote and watching Katy. Gonna try to catch a few winks cuz I'm beat.

Oh yeah, Taylor ate some of the food and drank water. Larry is at least interested now but I don't see him taking it. We're both in bed and he's getting a belly rub.

8 WAYS MEN CAN WEAR FACE MASKS AND STILL FEEL MANLY
by DEVORAH BLACHOR

"Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks" - Rep. Liz Cheney
"Men less likely to wear face masks because they're 'not cool' and 'a sign of weakness' says study." - The Hill

- - -

1. Whenever he agrees to put on his mask, refer to him as "the man."

2. As soon as he consents to wear protective gear that can save the lives of vulnerable people, pretend you can't lift something and then ask for his help.

3. If he agrees that epidemiologists know more than he does about how the Coronavirus spreads, ask him to grill the meat at a barbecue.

4. Once he resolves to never use a fake mask exemption ID card, make sure he feels appreciated by saying, "You do so much! Wow! I am so grateful!"

5. Compliment him for not appearing at the West Palm Beach public hearing and claiming that wearing protective masks violates God's wonderful breathing system, and then compliment him again about something like a muscle or his technical abilities or whatever.

6. If he has stopped labeling other men who wear medically recommended masks as "weak," tell him that he's the best lover you ever had. He'll believe you.

7. Does he fully understand that mask-wearing regulations do not violate the Constitution? Now's the time to make a casual remark about his stubble, and how quickly it grows.

8. As soon as he seems to grasp the concept that his reluctance to wear a mask is based on stereotypical gender ideas that are destructive to society, even when there's not a pandemic health crisis going on and that worrying what other people think about you for wearing a mask is in fact a weakness and that more than 120,000 Americans have died because not enough people are taking precautions like wearing masks that could have saved so many of them and I can't believe anyone even has to have this conversation what the fark is wrong with people just be a man and put on the goddamn mask... Ask him to drive the car. Laugh at his jokes. Ask him to order your food. Say something flirty. Scream when you see a spider.

Yes, in Los Angeles, and the earlier tour a few years back when a tour came through San Francisco. I forget if that piece was also in the 1976 Los Angeles exhibit when I saw the Death Mask, though.

Still feels weird. I was lucky during the last one as well with a full time year round job at a ski resort, albeit still paycheck to paycheck in employee housing. 
All of my old service industry friends that never graduated are farked right now, a bunch are homeless or on the verge etc.

So you are me 20 years ago. Talk to your doctor and be honest with them about what is going on in your head. Never was completely honest and the ER visits started. At least for me anyway.

Stay safe. I know I am going to breakdown and buy a drone eventually. I will consider you a expert consultant. Pay sucks as it nothing.
