I wrote a post on the things I had to learn about type 1 diabetes (T1D) when our 18 month old son was diagnosed in January. maori.geek.nz/the-unreasonab… It was a good way to learn what I needed by trying to explain it to others.

Apparently “Dr” and “woman” do not match on British airways. Looking forward to their reply.

In a shining example of how America's entirely privatized healthcare system is clearly superior to the public healthcare system in every other country that has the resources to support it, I have a story.

New Zealand has some incredible athletes that very many of you have ever heard of! Ruth is the first Kiwi to win what is considered to be the Super Bowl of ultra running.

When Republicans lose, they blame Democrats. When Democrats lose, they blame Democrats. This is why we lose.

Pro-lifers don't like complexity. At 17 weeks my placenta detached and he was much too small. I thought I felt my baby's frantic attempts to breathe. My OBGYN advised me to terminate the pregnancy, there wasn't much time. But I couldn't.

It's quite telling that major companies aren't criticizing the Supreme Court ruling but instead offering workarounds to abortion bans as a company perk. This is quite Dystopian because it's already assumed to be a new normal and makes people even more dependent on their employers

“Reparations?!? nobody alive today was involved in slavery.” No one has a problem with receiving an inheritance and therefore money they weren’t alive to make. We understand the concept of generational wealth, but somehow generation trauma and poverty aren’t real.

Whilst we're ranting at the USA Supreme Court, do not forget the current leader of NZ's National Party, has expressed his desire to reverse our abortion laws here in NZ.

I called and asked for a smart meter for our house as it would allow me to better monitor our power usage. I would have even paid. But I was passed around departments and promised callbacks that never came before I gave up.

But there is a cost of living crisis even for those is the second tax bracket. We need more tax brackets, 39% is a joke as a top tax bracket.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news here but there’s no “cost of living crisis” for people in the top tax bracket

Copilot took my job OR "required Copilot dev with 5 years of expeirience" showing up in job reqs from recruiters in the next 6 months
So much fud about Copilot. Can we just admit we’re afraid it’s going to take our jobs?
