It's weird seeing the sheer amount of hate @drewdevault gets any time one of his blog posts is posted, well, anywhere.

DZ: Crazy Canada Doctor

DZ: Crazy Canada Doctor

The Canadian government says it is urgently trying to end the forced sterilization of Indigenous women, describing the practice as a human rights violation and a prosecutable offense. Yet police say they will not pursue a criminal investigation into a recent case in which a doctor apologized for his “unprofessional conduct” in sterilizing an Inuit woman.

I've been away from social media for a week and I come back to a bunch of posts about guys thinking about Rome. I just happened to watch Angels and Demons yesterday. Coincidence or conspiracy?

I'm arriving in Costa Rica tomorrow and will be surfing all the breaks in and around #Tamarindo for the next week. If any other fedi folk are in the area, hit me up and let's drink a beer.

Want to wish a very happy birthday do my long time friend @AndrewHacks! He put the G in Google for 8 years and now I don't know wtf he does but he's still the nerdiest G of all time.

PS, sorry if this is a double honk haha. First one should have been previewed properly first.

I've loved powerlifting style weight training for a very long time. I was never crazy serious about it but I could move respectable weight for a hobbyist.

About 8.5 years ago I lost my focus during a deadlift that was way heavier than I should have been doing and really hurt my back. I had trouble walking normally for like 6 months.

So for a long time I was afraid to really push things. Then I got a bit lazier, then covid really turned me into a flabby bastard. I decided by the end of this year I wanted to do 3 things:

1. Squat 315+ again
2. Bench 235+
3. Deadlift 405+

Today I squatted 315 for 5 reps (though the last 2 had the slightest of help from the spotter).

I know it's not a lot but at 43 years old, feels good to hit 3 plates again.

I believe I'll hit my deadlift goal (currently repping 365 for 5 without issue) but I really doubt I can make my bench goal (about 205 at the moment but upper body has always been very hard for me to progress). Let's see how the rest of the year plays out.

Woah. Just logged into Twitter (whatever) for the first time in a while and my home feed is 90% accounts I don't follow or topics I have no interest in. How can people still use it? It's pure spam now.

@tedu I never saw that in LA but where I live now in Managua, Nicaragua, they'll stuff spare tires, large tree branches, big rocks in these massive pot holes in the street. Mainly to call attention to avoid this because otherwise people will drive right into it and blow their tires. Plus it's a poor country so repairs usually come days, or weeks, later.

@ols As someone who is in the hair removal with wax business, I can say it's not really recommended to wax your nose hairs. We don't offer it as a service in our salons on purpose because there are potentially serious side effects (just think, very sensitive area, thin skin, prone to ingrown hairs, infections near the brain)

Guess who's got tickets to see Luis Miguel in February in #Managua #Nicaragua..... This guy!

For those of you outside of Latin America, this tour is a big deal. Gonna be a f'n blast!!!

Lemmy took me like 45 minutes or so to build from source and a couple of days to get it configured right and federating, etc.

Today I spent a total of 10 minutes getting Azorius setup. About 25 seconds of that was build time (because it was the first time building it, had to download modules, etc.) Subsequent builds take around 3-6 seconds.

So much better and the load on my VPS dropped to normal levels again. Lemmy is a resource hog.

Moral of the story, give Azorius a try.

I think I need to figure out how to get my WhatsApp stickers into the emu storage of #honk. Missing out on too many useful sticker situations here.
