Labels are beacons, not fences.

It’s not whether you’re in or out, they’re just milestones by which you set your tent.

today I talked into my watch that I wanted to get home by bike and stuck a phone onto a bike and it got me home. I still have to pedal because having a throttle makes your bike Class II which requires a different set of things I don’t want to think about, but theoretically the bike could’ve accelerated on its own. I got out of the bike dealership and I had a sense I didn’t put into words, but the words were “we are all living through a long traumatic event”.

I’m rereading 17776.

Update: Lady’s parts have been donated a while ago, and her strength has repaired many another bike in my absence, say my parents. Godspeed, gentle ride.

me: there are hundreds of thousands of people who sleep without shelter in cities every night

guy from 1000AD: that sounds bad. is there not enough construction material?
