GRS, CW meta for this account
I'm having a GRS and FFS on Tuesday, 23 July 2019.
I won't be posting explicit photos, but I will talk about my experiences. That will, perforce, include graphic descriptions of anatomy. I will CW all of this appropriately.
If this isn't something you want to read, or if you are underage and it would be illegal for me to send these descriptions to you either in US/VA or your jurisdiction, please either unfollow me or refrain from opening these CW'd messages.
culture, competition (-)
One thing I really hate about my culture is its fetishization of competition. We create needless competition in business, sports, politics, etc. Why? It is destructive, it creates more losers than winners, and it wastes resources that could be better used to solve our collective problems. Proponents claim it spurs innovation and achievement. Bullshit: it spurs cheating and gaming the system. Competition of *ideas* is better served by *cooperation* to study them.

Update: I now have a board with everything recapped *except* C36. I'm amazed the damage from the leaking battery cleaned up as well as it did.
This post brought to you by me not finding a parts diagram before I bought parts and not realizing that there is that one 1uF cap just chucked into the mix to piss me off. (It was turned in such a way that I couldn't read it in situ.)
The context: this was about drinks made with frozen hollow ice balls.

I'm listening to what I could best describe as a combination self-help seminar and training to use nonsense polling to manufacture consent.
Anyway, one of the example polls was an open-ended prompt, "How can true connections be fostered as part of your team's culture?"
One of the audience responses was, "wear a costume in zoom."
Been there, done that, have the fursuit.
Oh, gods, now they're playing a TED talk about "trust & cooperation."
People cooperate to solve problems. That builds trust in everyone else who engaged in good faith.
Lack of trust & cooperation at work is the result of the deliberate atomization and disempowerment of workers. To build trust & cooperation, you need get rid of all of the dozens of layers of useless-at-best management and encourage people to solve their problems for themselves.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
It's voting as theater. “Collecting feedback" as a performance meant to salve the outraged masses with a pretense of listening to them, when in reality it means nothing and has little bearing on how the agency in question will be run going forward.
Sometimes matters shift after such feedback, and sometimes meaningfully. But always in a way that the real agenda-makers choose to allow, and never in a way that threatens their personal power.
