Surely I’ve not the only one who has seen this, but some of the most aggressive and hostile drivers of all are women. And I don’t mean a small minority, either. The last SUV that attempted to run me off the road was piloted by a 30ish-year-old woman. The last few people who I have observed driving really aggressively and dangerously were women. The most absurdly pugnacious passing maneuver I’ve ever seen executed on a public road was done by a woman (almost resulting in two head-on accidents). Sure, overall they are safer drivers but by no means is it a large majority of men doing this.
Same for me as with Devon. Fighting global climate change and liberalism (in the non-political sense) are incompatible. That’s just the way it is.
I don’t know what’s coming next. Liberalism, conservatism, fascism and socialism have all failed or are failing. Society is stagnating, constrained by a past it can no longer inhabit and a future it cannot yet imagine. Good ideas are scarce to non-existent. There is much anomie but no aim, much dissolution but no resolve.
We are poised on the edge of a world not yet visible, toes over the cliff’s edge, eyes on the sky. Leap or be pushed; either way we’re going over that precipice. What’s at the bottom, I don’t know. No one does.
Firefox is about to break DNS by enabling DNS-over-HTTP by default. Once that happens, the browser will ask Cloudflare over DNS for name resolution instead of whatever your sysadmin configures, leaking the names of all the websites you visit to Cloudflare.
Absolute fucking horseshit and Firefox is full malware now, if it wasn’t before. What kind of utter shit-for-brains in the Mozilla org thought this was a good idea, I haven’t a clue. But they shouldn’t be allowed to work in the tech sector again. They are not fit for washing my damn car windows.
