I don’t know if is a thing, but Amazon pushing “look we’re helping to save you” on their homepage all the time is definitely it. Maybe if you paid your damn tax we might be able to afford some ventilators?

The spam signups on mastodon.me.uk (which I moderate before they get to do anything) are now advertising Chloroquine. Fuck you, spammers. Fuck you very much.

Self-help advice for parents now trying to teach kids at home:

My daughter has special needs; it’s taken me a long time to realise that she could ALWAYS take more attention, more energy and more help, no matter how much we give. There's no point feeling guilt about not giving more, because there can NEVER be enough. we have to be OK with doing what we can sustainably do.

The same goes for teaching your kids at home. There can never be enough, so you have be OK with what you can manage.

Is there such a thing as a Continuous Cortisol Monitor? I feel I could do with a graph and alerts to quantify exactly how overstressed I am. Data solves everything doesn't it?
