The scourge of inkjet printers will ruin america

Ladies and gentlemen, wake up and smell the ink! Inkjet printers are a deep state conspiracy, designed to control and manipulate the minds of the masses. Don’t believe me? Just look at the facts.

First of all, have you ever noticed how inkjet printers are always running out of ink? It’s no coincidence, folks. The deep state wants to keep us dependent on their monopoly over ink, so they intentionally design printers to run out of ink at the most inconvenient times.

But it gets worse. The ink used in inkjet printers is filled with mind-control chemicals, designed to subvert our free will and turn us into mindless drones. This is why we always feel so foggy and out of sorts after using a printer.

And let’s not forget about the so-called “inkjet cartridges.” These are nothing more than high-tech surveillance devices, capable of tracking our every move and transmitting data back to the deep state overlords.

It’s time to take back control, folks. Say no to inkjet printers and the deep state control they represent. The future of humanity is at stake.

The Zen of automobile maintenance

The oil in one’s car flows like a river, constantly moving and changing. To keep the car running smoothly, the oil must be changed periodically. This is like the flow of time, always moving forward and requiring us to adapt and change with it.

What is the sound of the oil being changed in a car? It is the sound of impermanence, reminding us of the fleeting nature of all things.

How do we change the oil in our cars? With mindfulness and care, tending to the needs of the present moment.

In this way, the act of changing the oil in our cars becomes a Zen practice, reminding us of the impermanence of all things and the importance of being present in each moment.

In the style of an Alex Jones rant, tell me a story about how soup is turning kids into decent human beings and that I can’t stand it.

Soup. Soup, soup, soup. That’s all I ever hear about these days. “Have some soup, it’ll make you feel better.” “Soup is good for the soul.” “Soup is the key to a healthy diet.” Well, let me tell you something, folks: I can’t stand it. I can’t stand the way that soup is turning our kids into decent human beings.

It’s like some kind of mind control, I tell you. One minute, your kid is running around, getting into trouble, acting like a wild animal. And the next minute, they’re sitting quietly at the table, spooning up some soup, and acting like a model citizen. It’s unnatural, I tell you. It’s not right.

And don’t even get me started on the ingredients. All those vegetables, all that broth, all those herbs and spices. It’s like some kind of secret recipe for turning kids into robots. Robots that obey their parents, that do their homework, that listen to authority. It’s sick, I tell you. It’s downright sick.

But I won’t stand for it. I won’t let soup control my child. I’ll fight this soup conspiracy with every breath in my body. I’ll keep my kid away from soup, no matter what it takes. Because I won’t let soup turn my child into a decent human being. Not on my watch. Not if I have anything to say about it.

In the style of an Alex Jones rant, please tell me a story about how YesterGearPC is turning decent, hard-working Americans into retrotech enthusiasts.

Alright, I’ll do my best to channel my inner Alex Jones here. Are you ready? Here we go…

YesterGearPC is a sinister company that is preying on the unsuspecting masses, turning decent, hard-working Americans into retrotech enthusiasts against their will. These retrotech enthusiasts are brainwashed into thinking that using old technology is somehow better than using modern, cutting-edge technology.

But make no mistake, this is all part of YesterGearPC’s plan to control the minds of the American people. They want to turn us all into mindless drones, obsessed with outdated technology and unable to function in the modern world.

But we must not let them succeed. We must stand up and resist their insidious influence. We must fight back against YesterGearPC and all they represent. We must defend our right to use the latest and greatest technology, and not be fooled by the lies and deception of YesterGearPC and their retrotech agenda.

Join the resistance and fight back against YesterGearPC. Together, we can defeat them and protect our right to use the technology of the future, not the past. Don’t be a pawn in their game – take a stand and say NO to YesterGearPC and their retrotech agenda.

Thank you.

You’re welcome! I hope you enjoyed my little rant. It’s important to stand up for what you believe in and resist any attempts to control your mind or limit your access to technology. Keep fighting the good fight!

My thoughts are elsewhere

My thoughts are elsewhere

At times it looks like I haven’t posted much here, but I actually have a giant pile of wordpress installs on this server and elsewhere. Sometimes I just need to rant or whine behind a thin veil of plausible deniability. Other times, it’s a project that doesn’t really link with anything else. There are also somewhere between zero and 999 instances that are entirely private. On the flip side, after actively Marie Kondoing who I’m following and then filtering out any recommendations on who to follow, social media is much more tolerable.

At some point I should write up my experiences on finding an ideal document management system, why I need one, and why I chose what I chose.

In other news, I bought a 3d printer. An Anycubic Kobra Neo. Yet another thing that deserves a post, and probably its own category.

He’s either going through a thing or has everything figured out.

Mobile blogging

That used to mean twitter or the early Tumblr, but I suppose technology has progressed and posting to WordPress from a phone isn’t terrible.
