Okay so like most people I was a bit shocked and disappointed by the result of the recent US election. Much has already been written on why it happened but the one thing I will bother saying is that if the Democratic National Congress had adhered to the _democratic_ part and elected Sanders as their candidate instead of installing Clinton they might’ve won.

This popped up recently and although there’s some odd holes in what it looks at, there’s a bit on the history of Trump. Hypernormalisation:

For a week or so I was trying to be optimistic, thinking that the sane yet still conservative majority of the GOP would steer Trump away from some of the more ridiculous ideas he’s mentioned but he may well be putting together a proper nazi cabinet.

Perhaps this will trigger a new wave of angry, energetic Punk.

Driver think rider, rider think driver

Sometimes when I am doing my commute I imagine being pulled over by and undercover cop car. And they say to me, we just stopped you to say Congratulations, you get out driver of the month award. Not only are you following all the road rules _but you’re doing it in such a stylish way_.

The car that I drive now is just not conducive to speeding. In fact it likes to travel at 10kph under the limit. I already mentioned that the heater/fan system has a mind of it’s own — more accurately it likes blowing a hot wind. I am too cheap to use the a/c. It doesn’t seem to work that well anyway. So I turn the fan on and set it for it’s coolest setting, 18 degrees. It’s not 18 and it’s not even outside air temperature. It feels like it takes normal outside air and then runs it through the engine so it’s nice and hot. So far I’m dealing with it. As the BOM said yesterday — this is the longest break between days with 30 degrees we’ve had since 2003.
