As I write there are 86,304 signatures. Yesterday there were 84,882 signatures. That means we are signing at a rate of 1,422 per day.If we keep that rate up we will reach 100,00 by the morning of Sunday 12 February. It would be really lovely if we could get there sooner.

Please sign if you are in the UK and please boost if you are not.

heaven help me i read the comments on HN again, this time about whether it was ethical to have an online persona. i want you weirdos to know that i will lie to you whenever i feel like it, to make a story funnier or for any other reason. i absolutely cannot owe a faceless and uncaring swarm my honesty or vulnerability, it'd be like kissing a borg cube. for example: despite my many claims to the countrary i am a great poster and these are all great posts.

🎵 WIthout Prejudice by Protest the Hero

Evil is a very real concept
Dancing in the diner to your upset
Sharing drinks and laughing through their teeth
Their only success is our defeat

The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time. - Mary Oliver

“I began to read just after I was four. The letters on the page suddenly gave in and admitted what they stood for. They obliged me completely and all at once.”
–“The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction” by Alan Jacobs

Reading is awesome.

Currently re-reading The Dispossessed.

I cannot stress how much more pleasurable re-reading this is. I am astounded by all the details Le Guin included in just the first three pages. All details that made me wonder on the first read but suddenly everything clicked on the second read.

I highly recommend re-reading books. It feels like slowly restoring an old painting, uncovering features you never thought were there before, or even dismissed as not that important.
