Code is free speech

Among so many liberal soldiers wringing their hands and wetting their beds in fabricated rage, assigning hyperbolic, magical carnage dealing properties to Cody Wilson's single shot 3D printed Liberator pistol, another organization has bravely decided to flout the unconstituonal orders of a few anti-freedom extremist judges, and begin posting plans for 3D printed firearms. 

With all of the talk lately of fascism in the United States, I am hard pressed to think of a more clear example of fascism than the futile attempts of judges to abridge our free speech and free exchange of ideas, in a violation of our natural rights, granted to us by God, and enumerated within our Constitution. 

If you value liberty, even if you have no interest in ever buying a 3D printer or building a firearm at home, make a stand for freedom by visiting, and downloading their freely available 3D printer gun blueprints.

ICEy Cold Irony

PORTLAND, ORE. - In a customarily ironic display of liberal progressive cognitive dissonance, protestors against Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) have erected a makeshift border wall around their homeless reenactment camp in response to eviction notices from the Portland Police.

Yes, that's right. The very same militant leftists, who have viciously and violently opposed President Donald Trump's proposal to secure our borders with an adequately constructed wall, have now attempted to protect their Dignity Village mirror with.... A wall.

The Daily Caller

Cognitive dissonance (the pathological ability to hold two or more conflicting beliefs) is a pillar of liberal progressivism. Exempli gratia: a border wall is hostile and inhumane, except when expediently erected around an illegal urban encampment, and except when constructed to protect former president Barack Obama's new home; guns and police are evil, therefore only the police should have guns; carbon emissions should be regulated and restricted, except for Al Gore's private jet; executing the most evil criminals following conviction by due process is wrong, but aborting innocent and defenseless babies in the womb is good; communism and socialism are ideal economic policies, except when actual homeless people (who were not participating in working toward the communal effort) tried to eat communal meals at the Occupy Wall Street protest; etc. etc. etc.......

Spyderco Byrd EMS Rescue Knife (Coupon Edition)

Spyderco Byrd EMS Rescue Knife

I'm sitting out on my porch this evening enjoying the summer night, watching a swarm of insects attempting victory over my bug zapper through attrition, and reflecting on the fact that I lost my Spyderco Byrd knife in the woods last week while cutting firewood. 

Thankfully, the Spyderco Byrd "Cara" Rescue knife is an amazing pocket knife at a very low price, so I can afford to be an idiot and clip it onto the wrong pocket while humping logs across the landscape. Amazon is now running a 47 cent coupon on top of an already incredible deal, and I ordered the orange one today. Orange, being the most fantastic color given to man by God. 

I previously wrote about this model of Spyderco knife here. Buy this knife!

Your daily dose of irony

“The great thing about our city is you can have a fraternal and positive relationship with a country and its citizens but disagree in a mature and adult way with the president,” - London Mayor Sadiq Khan

"Khan has since defended his decision to grant permission for [the baby Trump blimp] to be flown as part of a protest against Trump’s visit." - CNBC

What could go wrong?

Found at my local grocery store:

Gallons of bleach based drain cleaner directly next to gallons of ammonia. What could go wrong?

I realize the chances of these chemicals escaping and mixing is slim, but the chance is still real and the consequences could be severe. I have seen this same shelf stocking arrangement in multiple stores just waiting to be crashed into by someone on a motorized scooter, or knocked over by someone's kid. 

I used to notify management, but I have since found that to even have the knowledge to raise that kind of alarm is looked upon with suspicion, so I prefer now to just let nature take its course.

Great Moments in Hookup History

Tattoo belonging to smm523
I noticed a bunch of referrals coming in from a Reddit "Creepy PMs" thread titled "From dead dad to hookup."

"Great moments in hookup history"

I'm going to guess the odds of that hookup attempt being successful were about zero. The tattoo, owned by Reddit user smm523, is pictured at the top of this page. To me it doesn't look like v-fib, so much as perhaps a sinus type rhythm with a ton of artifact. Despite the heavy artifact, the tattoo has meaning to the owner because it was the last heart rhythm captured by her father's Fitbit right before he died.

I don't have a Reddit account, but thank you everyone from Reddit for coming to visit.

Quote of the day: "EMSBoi"

"I think this whole thing is a bit immature. They are tattoos, not actual ECG’s. They are supposed to look cool, not be medically accurate. I also find it HIGHLY unprofessional for a fellow paramedic to be posting what they feel are ‘bad’ tattoos on other medical professionals and publicly revile them for not being 100% accurate. Where I come from, we show respect to our peers and stand up for them like we would our own family. Maybe try to work on your integrity."

Daffodils like the "EMSBoi" are the worst part of EMS. Delicate, baby snowflakes like that reflect poorly on us all. I have a zero tolerance policy for that kind of weakness. Save your ass-patting bro bullshit for the firehouse... it's not my job to validate or encourage your shitty life choices. Get the hell out of my profession and take your crappy tattoo with you.
