"A man who is unconscious of himself acts in a blind, instinctive way and is in addition fooled by all the illusions that arise when he sees everything that he is not conscious of in himself coming to meet him from outside as projections upon his neighbour." -- Carl Jung

RIP Bram Moolenaar, creator of Vim text editor.
RIP John B. Goodenough. He was part of the team at MIT that developed computer RAM. Then he discovered the materials used in the lithium-ion battery (for which he later won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.) Do you have a cell phone or tablet? Electric car? Anything with a rechargeable battery? Thanks to Goodenough. Also, he didn't apply for a patent for the Li-ion battery. When asked what he would like to see from humanity, he replied "I don't want man, in his greed to exploit the resources of Earth, to turn what should be a garden into a desert."&technology
"The last color, violet (or purple) represents spirit. Purple is often thought of as a regal, royal color that, on its own, denotes pride. Like blue, purple is considered a calming color, but rather than being associated only with calm, the color purple connects us to the spiritual realm." from what the colors of the pride flag mean&pride
"The indigo or blue in the original pride flag was for serenity. Little is more important than the ability to feel calm and serene. Blue is known as a relaxing color that soothes the soul. The color blue is often used for nighttime consumer products to represent bedtime and calmness." from what the colors of the pride flag mean&pride
Head Quarters District of Texas Galveston Texas June 19th 1865.
The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor.
The freedmen are advised to remain quietly at their present homes and work for wages. They are informed that they will not be allowed to collect at military posts and that they will not be supported in idleness either there or elsewhere.
By order of Major General Granger

"The red in the flag represents life. This makes sense if you think about how blood is red and how often blood is thought of as a vital life force of the body. Red also represents passion among many cultures. And, passion is ideally where life originates from." from what the colors of the pride flag mean&pride
I recently added a light theme to this site and it should automatically switch between light and dark depending on your system settings(at night you might see the dark theme and during the day the light theme, if your computer/phone automatically switches themes like that.) Also, just made the light theme a light grey background instead of the blinding solid white. Not sure if this is where I want to stay yet.
