Rocketman & The Birds

When I first started using the bird site, I did so because I realized how toxic Facebook was becoming. This was around 2015.

In less vague terms, people lie an average of 3 times every ten minutes. I know this not because I am some … Read more

the intraweb is fun

I’ve worked with computers for a long time, long before there was a commercial application of the internet to be exact. I’ve seen my fair share of interesting things and have participated in some interesting online conversations. In all that time I’ve maybe had a handful of of people threaten to kick my ass.
