Hey everyone, my name is Richard K Niner, or RK for short.

I'm a doggo from Toronto who likes to fursuit, draw, and occasionally snap photos or watch sports, though I know better than to bore most of you with that last one.

guns, regulation 

@rkniner sometimes I wonder how effective it would be stateside to regulate murder machines the same way we regulate cars:

i.e. driver's/shooter's license, mandatory car/weapon registration & insurance, etc

Of course, even if these could be done in a way that makes them effective, I have no faith in the US doing so.

gun mention 

Confession: every time the 2A debate comes up, I mentally replace "gun", "firearm", and all other related words with "murder machine"

@rkniner it's a sign the problem has been going on a while and getting worse when a mainstream national news site in a neighbouring allied country puts this on the top of their homepage

@rkniner Yes, I know impeachment exists, but when it's easier to install a new justice than remove an old one…

us poli thought 

Randomly thinking about how the US seemed to re-implement all the things they supposedly got rid of during the revolution...

In some ways, the SC feels like a re-implementation of the monarchy, with its unelected composition and absolute, unchecked power

ontario poli 

...yep, it's election season. Got a visit from one of DoFo's volunteers (well, the local candidate for his party)

Ontario politics, voting 

*checks* And yes, of course 3 of the 4 advance polling locations are on the richer side of the riding (and within walking distance of each other)

Ontario politics, voting 

Is it just me, or do they keep moving the advance polling stations further and further away every election?

From a school 800m away, to a community centre 2 km away, to a library 3 km away, to a community centre 3.5 km away, to my choice of community centres 4-7 km away

on poli, silly 

I don't know, "Get Doug Ford it done" has the same energy as "of in the cold food of out hot eat the food"

Still cutting my own hair; I think I'm getting better at it.

But maybe this summer I'll be able to get it done by someone who knows what they're doing?

food, silly 

Felt like chicken tonight. Don't ask "Y" 😝

covid, furry cons 

Seeing the attendance figures for the most recent con and it's weird how it's the one that I've heard the most complaints about is the one that grew the most since the pandemic started (~2000 extra attendees when most cons actually got smaller)

covid conspiracy thoughts 

It always seemed weird how right-wingers seemed to embrace this idea that the pandemic was faked just to force everyone to put on masks, particularly when politicians have spent years trying to make them illegal in as many places as they could.

If anything, you'd think they would do the exact opposite. It's probably why, now that vaccines are available, they're trying to downplay & hide the pandemic, while lifting and (in some cases) banning mask mandates.

Kinda wish I had it available a while ago, but in my condo, it's finally the first day of A/C

*turns down the temperature*

covid, masking, furry con mention 

Looking at the fallout from all the FWA stuff today, and trying to figure out who's complaining about dropping the mask requirement last night vs re-enacting it this afternoon (although not really phrased to sound like a requirement)

Doesn't affect me since I'm not going, but you can tell having everything change quickly makes it hard to get the message out.

Gotta love waking up and going to the washroom only to find that the cold water is hot
