Hmmm, I can buy an acre of waterfront property on Sint Eustatius for $90,000... not the worst escape plan...

Things that make me feel old today: people entering college/university this year (in US standard, anyway) may not have even been alive for 9/11.

This is absolutely bonkers.

Oh dear. It appears I may have played 37 days of Factorio before it was even released.

Seriously random strangers I see while I'm waiting to pick up my pizza, wearing my mask? Hugs all around, with no masks, when you've clearly not seen each other in a while? Not cool.

Just as it’s not legal to shell an opposing army with sarin or mustard gas, it’s also illegal to fire off commonly used riot control agents in war. Against protestors in one’s own country, however? Perfectly legal. bit.ly/2AH8xDU

If you read only one thing on the today, read this thread by my friend and colleague Chris.

Chris was there. He saw with his own eyes as the @BostonPolice@twitter.com were the ones who INITIATED the violence in at least a section of the protests on Sunday night. :(

I saw dozens of cops at the event yesterday. Cops on motorcycles, who stood stoicly as Black protesters screamed "fuck the police". Cops holding traffic at intersections. There was no violence in those cases.

The violence started when the cops *drove vehicles through crowds*.

My 19 year-old daughter is going to a protest march in Manhattan tomorrow, so I asked my public defender friend to give her advice, and I thought I'd pass on what he told her.

Freshly de-shagged Sprocket after his first post-lockdown grooming!

Just saw 9 busses with a police escort heading towards Downtown Boston. Couldn't see in clearly from my position but presume it's police reinforcement. :(

Stay safe out there.

If you are more invested in attacking the ways people respond to state violence against black people than in attacking the state violence itself, then you are fully in support of oppression.

I don’t know but they sure are incompetent. Yet another order from @Grubhub@twitter.com completely disappeared without a trace today. :(

Boston Police Headquarters currently surrounded by metal barricades, with approximately 20 bike cops standing guard. This is a fair way from the current , but they're clearly preparing. Multiple helicopters overhead.

I can't figure out why publications like Forbes are constantly putting out "Apple just gave 1.5 billion iPhone users a reason to switch" garbage.
