Quote of the moment:
I'm a philosopher. That means I'm full of shit, like all the other philosophers.
End of June, 2021, and the Pacific Northwestern United States (where I happen to be) is enduring record-breaking heat. The typically mild and rainy climate has temporarily (I hope) given way to temperatures in excess of 115° Fahrenheit. For people who only speak metric, that's like 45° Celsius, and also: fuck you!
