I first joined Twitter in January of 2007—I’m user number 698,363—and it’s pretty much the only social network I still engage with; the only others I ever really used were Facebook and Instagram, and I’ve since deleted both of those. But over time, I (like many, many others) found my Twitter usage was trending in a direction I didn’t really like, so in June of 2019, I decided to declare “Twitter bankruptcy” and start again. This is basically an archive of all of my tweets since then.
Unbelievably disappointed, but I understand the decision. At least it looks like I’ll be able to re-apply for 2021 with my 2020 qualifying time. 🤞🏻 https://t.co/D8zTgrtEHk
I have completely forgotten how to study (as in properly study, not just read stuff and recall bits of it later).
This weirds me the hell out. No way that this will make restaurant dining “less awkward”… it seems more like a scene from a horror movie. https://t.co/D1adQWRQr8
EVERY. DAMN. DAY. I’m glad it’s not just my Btain that wants to do a Napday as well. https://t.co/UbD4Ek9y15
Me (waking up): What day is it?
Me: But which.
Me: Ugh. Fine.
Btain: Can we do a Napday instead?

Another Friday night on the couch, another (mostly) pointless little project.
“Well, I’m pleased to announce that, even though the velociraptors are still on the loose, we will be opening Jurassic Park back up to the public!”
This is incredibly juvenile and posting it reflects poorly on me, but after weeks on end of nothing but shitty news, it made me laugh (especially the gorilla right at the end), and I needed a laugh.
In reply to @mrburger007:
@mrburger007 @MarkMulvey If only everyone paid attention to the “appropriate pre-conditioning” part in general! A lot of the “running is bad for your joints” stuff could be avoided by people being sensible. It’s like me trying to deadlift 200lbs and then saying lifting is bad because I injured myself.
In reply to @MarkMulvey:
@MarkMulvey From my reading, shoes are less of a contributor than most people think. Surface more so, but still not decisive. “Too much” is relative to the individual; if you try to go from 0-marathon in a week, you will hurt yourself, but that’s not the fault of the distance or the sport.
I have, in fact, wondered why LEGO Minifigures have a tiny black square on their necks. Curiosity satisfied. https://t.co/pZpzXlduvW

If you don’t understand why masks are necessary, maybe this will help. https://t.co/8ln1AW8SLX
