In 2018, I pulled a small Sony Trinitron CRT TV out of my neighbor's trash. It worked just fine and looked great. But then I crippled it trying to turn it into an oscilloscope. Figuring it was no good because it kept turning itself off after a few seconds (not knowing it was a safety feature), I threw it off the roof shattering it. I've since learned not to break CRT's and cherish them instead of doing irreversible experiments with them.

I taped my headphones back together. Now that I think about it, I didn't have that bad of a consumerism problem. I care about maintainence, I use old computers, and I'd say my family consumes more than me.

Surveillance capitalism and junk mail industries won't be missed for a single nanosecond if they were to disappear outright. Data brokers definitely have my real legal name with "ClosedGL" in the list of known aliases.

Feeling stuffy kinda feels nice to me somehow. Something to do with not having to go to school because I was sick? But I don't go to school anymore.
