Hello! I'm Stephen. Here's a real :

I've been a lawyer for ~8 years. For 6 years I represented marginalized folks in Ohio's courts, mostly appeals. For the last 2 years I've worked in systems and data for public defenders. Now I live in NYC and work in the Bronx.

I work with , , process/systems improvement, , , , and where all of that intersects. Let me know if you want to talk about any of that! (Also into , , , my cat)

some questions 🤝 A jack-in-the-box
being able to surprise me

I'm watching a speedrun Untitled Goose Game, and when they got a trick to work, someone said "praise Geesus."

Do people ever sing your name? And if so, what song do they sing?

This is as close as I get to watching sports. I even yell at the tv like a real sports guy. youtu.be/gCpzDLvc5ik

Also, I recorded this video the third time I watched this clip, and as you can hear, it still makes me laugh every time.

Me a half hour ago: "How odd, a video about marbles."
Me now: "Wow Hazers had two finishers in the balancing event! That's two balancing world records back to back! Too bad about that Balls of Chaos false start though."

I made this meme for Twitter about prosecutors complaining that they need funding to implement New York State bail reform laws. I hope you enjoy it.

"In the 2018 qualifiers, Team Primary narrowly defeated Balls of Chaos in the semifinals. This angered Balls of Chaos fans, who tried to storm the track. One got on the track and had to be subdued by four security marbles. Four Balls of Chaos fans tried to attack International Marble Committee officers and were subdued by security marbles." (Yes the fans were all marbles)

Ok some highlights from the Wikipedia article about the man who created this: "He received the Guinness World Record for the world's longest marble run on May 21, 2009."
"In late 2018, Bakker accidentally deleted his original channel while trying to delete his Google+ account and was forced to relaunch."

There are black and white striped marbles arrayed around the course as "referees." Why does this exist.
