    Forgive my stream of consciousness, I'm tired this morning.

    I don't see how the country doesn't collapse on itself in the next decade. The left (myself included) wants to enact laws that depend on local law enforcement to enforce, but law enforcement will either ignore the law or will selectively enforce it against minorities and poor people (mask mandates, gun regulation, drugs, etc). As an example, essentially every single county sheriff in the state of Wisconsin said they would not enforce the mask mandate.

    If we fire LEOs in left-"controlled" cities/counties because they won't enforce the law, they'll just get re-hired at another precinct in rural areas or different states. If we put in criminal penalties for disobedience, they won't be enforced by the courts.

    I started CS50 in mid-January and got through 3 weeks, which really helped with For/If-Else/While loops, then slammed through Python by Example by Nichola Lacey, and asked for (and got a lot of) help in a group chat. I also have 8 years of experience in Networking, and 3-4 years self-hosted my own stuff which helped tremendously in getting familiar with understanding python errors (even if I didn't understand the code).

    I definitely intend to finish CS50, but python was just so much easier to use than C, and the problem sets are pretty damn difficult.

    hibpwned-console, a terminal "client" for hibpwned

    I'm very new to programming (< 3 months) and python, so this is about a weeks worth of labor on about 3 weeks of studying python. Definitely needs more options like outputting to a file/DB, but I'm happy with my progress so far.

    I'm just glad no one has to smell my nasty gingivitis halitosis breath that's come from barely brushing my teeth and overall terrible hygiene over the past 2+ years. Depression is a bitch.

    Slowly working on implementing my New Years resolutions. So far it's been mostly a dud, but my wife and I are both on a 6 day Duolingo streak (Spanish), and I decided to try some Norwegian today. Also did some dishes and laundry for the first time in way too effin' long.
