    These are the products I bought in case you are curious:

    It is a close range stun gun as a deterrent and as a last resort. It also sounds super nasty and freaks my dogs out. I can hold it in the air and crackle it, which is helpful with all the stray dogs around. Carried tandem with that is the mace for range in case of emergency. I don't live anywhere dangerous but it is unfamiliar here. I carry it as a deterrent while walking the dogs or shopping by myself. Or picking up scrap wood behind a store. There is always a better weapon out there but I am not going to carry a gun.

    You think a stun gun can’t be used in self defence? You should have seen how fast I got a pile of apes off me using just a zippo lighter.

    Yeah, I don't want to step on anyone's Toes or knowledge, but that kind of sounds like some bullshit that a guns course was teaching you. I think most people on the street who would want to mess with me are assuming I am defenseless and an easy target. Playing the game of odds, as soon as I show that I am not defenseless, they will lose interest. If someone has a gun and wants to kidnap me, even if I had my own, I am pretty much fucked.

    It worked. A stun gun you don’t have to aim. It would be great for something like, getting a hands-on creep away from you in the bus or subway. Right in the fucking face with it. Especially up here where pepper spray is a banned weapon nation-wide.

    off topic...is there a person on earth who despises the internet more than this poor son of a bitch?

    That bitch had the greatest internet memes in history concocted out of her gigantic spud of a head.

    The internet gave us all the frightening revelation that now our worst childhood moment can not only be recorded, but shared with everyone on earth. In a moment’s notice.

    Forever.


    ...HOW do I make that my ringtone? I’m serious.

    OK, I'm absolutely in love with Arduino.

    I'm sitting her programming a rather complex controller for my furnace/humidifier/recirc pump and it's pretty fucking fun.

    How have I never gotten into this before?

    When Christmas production of presents is done, I'm totally making some Arduino powered automation for the workshop... like box joint jigs, CNC, etc.



    In other news, progress is being made on various Xmas presents... puzzle boards, charcuterie boards, a custom head board, etc.

    Just finished glueing up my sister's puzzle board that is being made with birdseye maple with a walnut or purpleheart trim on it.

    Loving the new pipe clamps... makes me want to get rid of my old Bessey bar clamps... they're just a PITA when glue gets on the little teeth.

    She's very much an inspiration to a lot of people I believe. Ever since she first announced on twitter about her brain tumor diagnosis, I've been in on-and-off contact with her/her team; turns out we both had the exact same type tumor (albeit in different locations) and the speed of her recovery has been almost identical to mine. When you have something to survive for, your body can do some incredible things. She got back very, VERY quickly.

    And yes, I've seen that TED talk. She's smart beyond her years.

    Provided you remain in anonymity. The second the real You is exposed, you are open to judgement from anybody. Life-ruining judgment.
