It just hit me this month will end in 11 days and our election day is just around the corner. <muffled scream>

Reminder that Andrew Wakefield initially lied about finding a connection between mainstream vaccines and autism because he was peddling his own line of alternative vaccines. It wasn't just a spurious claim: he lied because he wanted people's money and he didn't care if those people got hurt.

I don't know who needs to hear this today but:
Being disabled is a full time job.

Love #Figma? Now that it has been acquired by #Adobe their future might just go the same direction as Macromedia Fireworks, which according to the top HN commenter was:
