I think I should translate the survey in other languages and see how it comes back too

I think doing a medium scale survey as an individual with social anxiety and troubles communicating is both a very bad idea for my mental stability and a great idea because I get into lots of situations that I have to learn how to handle

It's been ages since I had Dr Pepper for the last time, brings me back memories of lab coats, streaming and an adventure of some sort

In 1998, a programmer who had been working on Y2K fixes started to get anxious because he couldn't believe how pervasive the problem was. He switched from company to company trying to get away from it, but everywhere he went he became regarded as the Y2K expert and immediately became the team lead for that company's Y2K contingencies. He finally had a nervous breakdown, quit his job, and decided he wanted to be knocked unconscious when the Y2K actually came about.

A month before Y2K he was put into an artificial coma and cooled down to a near cryogenic easily sustained long term life support.

Unfortunately the life support notification system had a Y2K bug, and no one revived him for 8000 years.

Finally he was found and revived. He woke up, and saw himself surrounded by lots of glass, light, stainless steel, and tall beautiful people in white robes. He asked if he was in Heaven.

They replied, "No, this is Chicago. Actually but it's a lot like Heaven to someone like you."

"Someone like me?"

"You are from the 20th century. Many of the problems that existed in your lifetime have been solved for thousands of years. There is no hunger and no disease. There is no scarcity, or strife between races and creeds."

"What year is it now?"

"Yeah, about that - it's the year 9,998. You see, the year 10,000 is coming up, and we understand you know something called COBOL?"

I love it when I fill a document for an institution, send it with acknowledgement, receive the acknowledgement, then one week later receive a message that I need to fill said document ⸮

Is it me being unreasonable thinking people should at least know all of the countries with multiple million inhabitants or is just really not knowing that a thing?

And on the side I have to add all my hobbies of cooking, brewing, building stuff, airsoft, music, gaming...

With some looking back I have a plenty fulfilling life experience

I think I have the most various professional life you can imagine, going everyweek from software design and development to farm work, veterinarian work, accounting, teaching, sales, communication...

I always forget how much thought I have to put when I write, evaluating every word to be the correct one and be a coherent part of the whole...

It is my first time writing a play though making it all the more work

For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”

We need more media platforms like that.
