A story about timing:
I was playing Fallout 4, killing Mirelurks and their eggs for the Minutemen. I swung my axe, and one of the nearby minutemen that I didn't notice died. For a second I hoped that he was killed by something I wasn't looking at, but then I got a notification that "Preston hated that" and an achievement.
It was for killing 300 people and the name of the achievement was Masshole. 

I wasn't sure what Jessica Jones would be like when I started watching it. I was excited because I like Daredevil and Krysten Ritter.
It is a show which is always addressing trauma and abuse, both explicitly and implicitly. It uses superpowers, but it's easy to see the parallel to real life situations. Even when he's not controlling her, he's always in her head. I would definitely recommend trying it at least through episode 8. Without giving too much away, there's a scene where Jessica talks about what he did to her and he gives justifications for it. It's both uncomfortable and amazing. Oddly, the episode is also one of the funniest ones so far (I've seen through ep9). 

The difference between Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 for me is that even though my dad was Liam Neeson, I didn't give a shit what he was doing, but I will sure as fuck track down the assholes that stole my baby and shot my husband.

The similarity between them is that I will do that only after I have collected every piece of junk in the wasteland.

A hamper we stopped using awhile back is now one of Harley's favorite spots.

There's going to be a Cybersecurity summit on Stanford campus today. The White House is going to be live streaming it for anyone who's interested.

Holy shit. It takes 3 days and 26 tablespoons of butter to make about 8 of these.

I could theoretically play Crypt of the Necrodancer for just a few minutes, but I have yet to see it happen in practice. It's been awhile since a game has done that to me. :)
