🚨 🥗 🚨 CDC today: throw out all your romaine lettuce right now, and sanitize the drawer in your fridge where you kept it. https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2018/o157h7-11-18/index.html
PSA, this seems like a good idea.

It's official, Stanek finally conceded. http://www.startribune.com/hutchinson-s-victory-over-stanek-officially-certified/500389941/
Been getting interested in mechanical keyboards this past couple months. Posted on reddit asking if there was anyone local that owned a couple specific models so I could try them out before buying. One woman on there went ahead and organized a mini meetup at Fairgrounds coffee, which we had today. They were very cool and the meetup helped me out a ton!

Once again wishing Jesse Ventura had been successful in his push to convert MN to a unicameral legislature.
Every state should run their elections the way #Minnesota does:
✅ Same-day voter registration
✅ Paper ballots, scanned optically
✅ Adequate polling locations everywhere = short lines
✅ Employers must pay for workers' time off to vote if it falls within their scheduled work time — as much as necessary, no limit!
✅ Vote early by mail or in person for any reason starting 46 days before the election
• Slept in (kids too! 😮)
• Replace blower motor in commute car, ending years-long era in which heat could only be had accompanied by loud mechanical wailing
• Added 12GB ECC RAM to a computer I am slowly building as a FreeNAS server, for a total of 24GB. (Just need hard drives now!)
• Going out dinner at Crave with Jess and then gonna see A STAR IS BORN

As an example of what parenting will do to your mind…when my 2yo threw up in his crib (kinda randomly, after not having done so for five days), I half suspected he had figured out how to do it on purpose in order to get some after-bedtime attention.
I was proven wrong when after we’d gotten him bathed and dried and changed he totally threw up again all over Jess. 🤦🏼♂️

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
