Also, if you want an Enhanced ID, I hope you've studied up on where your mom and dad were born, because they ask.

@Laurelai I saw your mention of it but haven't read through it (nor did I read the 9th circuit decision, but I'm not surprised by the outcome).

Generally I think it's a good idea and probably enforceable to the extent any clickwrap/open source license is. The catch / limiting factor is having the resources to enforce. The Pepe artist has a firm doing the necessary legal work pro bono (I wonder what their arrangement is for settlement proceeds...)

@Laurelai Yeah. I'm happy to talk with that understanding.

@alex ever hear of a little something called Religious Freedom, buddy

.@lawremipsum This, but also cookies store very well in the freezer. If you're concerned about low spoon days/ bad depressive spells, you can absolutely bake cookies on a good day and store them for the bad, just stash them flat with paper towels between layers. Toast them in the toaster oven or warm in a microwave to revive them.

Most cakes also store well in the freezer, just cut it up and wrap it well in saran wrap and foil. Store for up to a year.

@sporks @alex prohibited unsolicited advice in his code of conduct and I think about doing that a lot.
