My overhauled website is live --

krisrad.io/
or, dat://krisrad.io/

If you are interested in electrical engineering in general, and digital signal processing in particular, definitely check it out.

Disclaimer: I'm not an expert! I don't even have my BS yet. But EVERYTHING I learn over the next two years is going up on krisrad.io - , baby.

My take on what capitalists can do (have to) to beat their toxic addictions and not burn our house down:

lmao can't find anyone that will rent to us in this city of 99% occupancy so I'm moving back into a community house that has one bathroom for like 15 people... I just hope there's an open room or I'll be bunk bedding

trump, uspol 

Can't stand people calling Trump an idiot or incompetent.
He's a CON MAN. He's making absolute bank for himself and his cronies. He's good at what he does - enriching himself.
His inadequacy as a president is not because he's incapable, but because he doesn't give a rats ass about the duties of the office - only himself.
That's not incompetency. It's evil. It's criminal.

And today's best break-up line goes to...
"Happy father's day babe, tell your kids I did the best thing for their parents"

Back flipping over the couch every time you say "kill all men" is half gag, half performance art, and half self-defense

police brutality, racism, murder 

Those two Atlanta officers completely deserve the charges for murdering Rayshard Brooks. Dude was running AWAY from you. How is that a threat?? He left his car behind. How could he really get away?? He didn't have to lose his life.

According to the video I saw -- not sure if it was the Fulton County DA talking or a police supervisor, he looked just like the guy who was talking to ex-officer Rolfe in the body cam video --- the officers also kicked Rayshard and stood on his shoulders. What the actual fuck?? Why is medical training for cops such a laughably low priority? They're supposed to be first responders for god's sake.

OH: "If the USA saw what is going on in the USA, the USA would invade the USA to free the USA from the USA."

I've always had a difficult time squaring my vocation with doing good in the world, but now I think I've crossed the line where I can no longer really buy into that.

Technocracy isn't improving the world, especially wrt the biggest problems, and most of the aerospace industry is actively making the world worse (even if my little corner isn't).

But I've spent my whole life training on this electrical engineering and code stuff. Where to go from here? Especially where to go without starving.

I have a loving heart but a critical mind.
The way I engage with people does not work online, where I can't use body language and verbal cues to understand when I approaching a line.
I need to stop talking to people I don't know online like they are old friends who understand my perspective and value the relationship enough to maintain it through thorns and thistle.

Went to a today and handed out BLM & antifa stickers.

Saw a lot of people I know including upperclassmen in my major, so that's rad.

The stickers are much better received when I stick to familiar/recognizable iconography, relevant to the current event/purpose, vs. making my own designs for some half baked affinity group.

My roommate put a sticker on a police station window!! And she is NOT the type to pull a stunt like that. Radical!

I think literally everyone except uncontacted indigenous people has blood on their hands. Including me, some whitey on the internet.

It's not an attitude that wins me friends. So I just stew.

Time to do more pushups and go for a jog I guess. Big dogs out there tryna eat us all up.

"Purchasing smoke detectors reveals information on what people are willing to pay to reduce their risk of dying in a fire."

Economic theory of capitalism really out here talking bout how much $$$ people will shell out as a good metric for weight mortality risks... Brutal

Deleted my last toot because of a video being posted wherein someone flashes the plates in questions, says to get them off facebook.. In that case I may have jumped the gun

Kinda feeling like an unpaid, uncertified psychiatrist with a client who won't listen.

Made a wood mold for seedling quad planters -- but mine will be made from ceramic, not plastic. 🔥 🧱 🌱

Aaaand that's my manic episode for the day, time for bed.

The new dat (aka hyper) wants me to validate my website with a twitter.. wtf? All I talk about on twitter is the syrian civil war, it has no relevance to my website at all

Jus got back from the hospital. I put two nails through my left index and middle fingers. I am big brained

Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls. The Earth does not sustain white supremacists.
