Re: When do you buy handmade?

I like to get handmade artwork, in whatever medium. Outside of that, whenever the quality is reasonable and it looks cool. I'll sometimes get handmade notebooks or paper.

Re: Flying Drones for fun (U.S. rules)

Thanks for gathering this information. I'm glad I don't need a license to fly recreationally.

I want to get a drone at some point to play around at parks or large lawns. Do you have any recommendations as to good starter drones, in terms of price, accessibility, or good places to buy?

Re: Just Can't Let It Go

Anti-vax discussions infuriate me. So do discussions of gender expression in young kids. Specifically, I feel compelled to step in anytime someone tries to use young kids as an example of gender essentialism, as if kids are not already born and steeped in a culture that cares so much about gender.

This came from me trying to think through the various responses of someone asking, "What's your type?" Yeah, I've got "types" that apply to people I'm interested in, but I didn't want to stop there.

Re: What was your first pet?

I've never had a pet that was just, solely mine.

Instead I have a series of pet-adjacent relationships, usually with dogs. Rocky would be the first I remember. He had a stubby nose and a gruff but lovable attitude.

The appearance of a list of links may seem daunting, but I'm virtually convinced it's a performance piece. Anti-vaxxers bother me to no end, so I'll try to help out by listing a few reasons why. 1. The administration of vaccines with thiomersal , a preservative. Anti-vax people see the "Hg"...
