This makes me wonder about the cosmetic part of buliding cyborg bodies in Ghost In the Shell.

Are there people who specialize in buttcheeks? I mean, seriously.. crafting the human-like parts of high-end prosthetic bodies has got to be a really important thing, with great attention to detail. Careful sculpting. Picking the right formulations of synthetic skin for different parts of the body depending upon how they wear through normal use (joints that flex a lot, joints that flex once in a while, parts of the body where skin stretches, and so forth) has to be a thing.

Which means that there are artisans who spend incredible amounts of time designing, modelling, sculpting, and stress testing the visible components of buttcheeks.

Soon I discovered that this rock thing was true
Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil
Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet
All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world
So there was only one thing that I could do
Was ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long

My local council has built this little parklet at the end of a dead-end street. Someone pointed out that it was all hexagons so I made a wargame map out of it.

The lesson of this story (of a Catholic blog using commercially resold Grindr data to out a gay priest) is *either* that anonymised data can always be de-anonymised (pretty much the intuition of lots of experts I know), or, less generally, you can't expect an org that benefits from selling other people's data to calibrate how much they should spend on anonymising.

In other news, I gotta improve my saucework. This Spaghetti Bolognese is awful.

Screw this day. I'm making dinner for the family, then I'm off to listen to Cabaret Voltaire until bedtime.

Holy crap, it just dawned on me that my gopherhole, The Backroad to Civilization, is a DECADE OLD!

I overpaid my credit card company 50 cents on my final bill on a closed account a month ago. I sent them a letter asking for it back and, just to be a cock, I'm going to phone them several times a day (weekends included) until they either pay me back, or I send them to Collections.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.
