If you need me, I'll be zoning out in front of my old-school weather channel feed (which is actually a really really nice way to get the weather compared to any modern weather web site.

"Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn't have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he couldn't afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property." - John Lame Deer, Lakhota, 1903-1976

I have linkedin & my company uses office, obv both run by MS. I’m starting a new project about oh let’s call it “custom enzymes”, something I have no experience in or even hint at in my profile.

dm me and i'll mail you my book and some stickers
