I've found trying different chargers sometimes works.

I got a splinter really deep in my pointer finger. I've tried for like an hour now to get it out. But still haven't gotten it. Hurts now too :(

I'm sure I'll get it eventually. But it's sore and I'm giving up for the night.

Well the inevitable failure of my beloved 30
year old Creek 4040S2 happened.
The right speaker channel has distortion. :(

A Denon DRA-375R receiver took its place for now.

Already miss the magical sound of that British integrated amp. :cry:

Looks like I have a little project now. So I’ll
learn something new.

Today the new president for the public company that handles our college entrance exams (much like the SATs) said he'd personally check every test made to stop so-called ideological questions from being used, that now the focus will be on the family and Brazilian values. He's only doing all of this because some people saw an issue with a Portuguese question focusing on the dialect transvestites and drag queens use when talking to each other.

Afterwards, I found out our only out gay Congressman will not step up for his reelection because he is too afraid to return to the country. He said he's afraid for his life after a Councilwoman in Rio was murdered by a militia because she was looking into punishing cops who abused their power. This kind of ruined my day, but what really made me grumpy was that my boyfriend was more concerned about coining him as a hypocritical communist than realizing he's lost his only real representation in our Congress.

Then I had the brilliant idea to watch a YouTube video about the 9 worst scams ever, and there the guy talked about people who told others that HIV is make-believe or that it doesn't lead to AIDS if untreated, and that the campaign against vaccinations is alive and well, causing avoidable danger that is killing hundreds of people.

So now I want to fucking punch a wall.

So today in more bad news happening in already shitty days, a second dam owned by Vale here in Brazil just broke over a city nearby. Nothing for sure yet, but the water distribution might be compromised and it seems some people are dead.

So, someone beat the crap out of Jussie Smollett from the "Empire" TV series. He is black and identifies as gay, as the character in the show. He was beaten, had a noose tied around his neck, and a strange substance poured over him while they shouted homophobic/racist slurs.

2019. And they tried to lynch him.

This is why people get upset over the jokes that are clearly homophobic - the relationship between language and violence shouldn't be tolerated.

And now Kevin Hart's little bit*h-a** is posting, "Stay strong brother - choose love! Why choose hate?" - but yet he made a joke about beating his son if he was gay. Like, dude . . .p--- off!

In December a friend backed into my car; had the work done and paid via amex. Today I realized I paid with my work card.... now it is an all at once out of checking instead of the "hey I'll pay it with my bonus in March" that was plan "A". Rushing has once again screwed me.

Same here. It never got above freezing all day. And the wind keeps picking up. I'm in my house in the heat and still have my hoodie on. :P

Stay warm everyone in this. It's gonna be dangerously cold tonight and tomorrow.
