If you are planning to kill your reddit account, there is an app, Redact, which is available on the Apple and Play stores, that will allow you to nuke all your posts before you close it completely. Deny them your data.

Making a nice meal for friends and family.

Which reminds me I haven't made buttermilk fried chicken in a while..

Cats are wonderful. However they're also stubborn. If you want a cat to not bug you for something, never give in. One you do, you lose. They'll outlast you.

As life keeps moving on I found that no matter how much I think I know, that is a near infinite number things that I have no clue about. So mt screen name is a constant reminder to remain engaged and humble in my vast ignorance.

For some reason, I thought of Reverend Dexter from Babylon 5

"Every day, here and at home, we are warned about the enemy. But who is the enemy? Is it the alien? Well, we are all alien to one another. Is it the one who believes differently than we do? No, not at all, my friends. The enemy is fear. The enemy is ignorance. The enemy is the one who tells you that you must hate that which is different. Because, in the end, that hate will turn on you. And that same hate will destroy you.", followed by the hymn

It still hits me hard, one of the best juxtaposition scenes in a series. Chilling and beautiful.

Back in my reddit days, there was a guy who did AMAs about vacuum cleaners that was actually incredibly informative. After talking and analyzing many machines, he suggested s couple vacuums. For my needs we got a Miele canister C1. It wasn't cheap, but 8 years later it is doing very well. No fancy circuit board, straightforward, solid manufacturing, 8 year warranty, a dial controller for the suction. No problems at all. Probably will last another 20 years. It's a great machine and has paid for it by not needing replacements. The closest thing to a complaint is that I wish the cord was about 1.5 -2m longer so I didn't need to unplug it to change outlets 2/3 of the way through, mostly because I'm lazy.

To add to others here, anger is neither good or bad. It is an emotion. It is okay to be angry at people causing pain and suffering. It's how you deal and use anger that matters. As others said, let it be energy to create positive change and don't allow it to burn you out from the inside.

So allow yourself to be angry, to feel the hurt and to be sad. Then do the work to make the necessary changes to make the world better.

Is this why he stands like a toddler about to make poopie pants?

There are no answers here. The truth is you, and the entirety of the Czech Republic were grievously injured in your collective soul. Whatever the motives of the shooter was, it is a senseless crime whose goal was to paralyze your heart.

Grieve first. It's necessary. However, don't let this cruel, twisted soul poison you. They win if you let it happen. Use your pain. Start by being with friends, classmates and family. Offer little kindnesses. A cooked meal or a timely errand, even pausing to listen to another person who is working through the same pain you are. It's doesn't seem like much, but it is your humanity that will get you through this.

When you finally begin to not feel so frozen, maybe invest time into social action to prevent this from happening in your country again. Work to be sure our American disease doesn't get a hold of your body. My country is broken here and the lesson you need from us is not let it infect you. Fight for it if you can.

Again, my condolences for all of your losses. They're probably inadequate, but know you are not alone.

Take care, stranger.

Moms for Liberty will go away, however some other AstroTurf group will find a way to fleece the flock with manufactured outrage.

Yup. I also groan when I sit down. You just had to call me out, didn't you?

Trans-exclusionary radical feminist.

They deny the validity of trans people in general and trans women in particular. J. K. Rowling lines up in this camp.

Small edit for typo.
