[about this site]

Advent of Code: collecting stars in order to find the missing snow, or something :) Finished in position 1925 this year, somewhat down on last year's 1188.

UK Elections: wow.

US Presidential Immunity: So the Republican political wing of the SCOTUS thinks that President Biden should have absolute immunity for any actions he takes involving the US Military (including apparently even the assassination of his political opponents) because they would be "core duties" of his presidency. And the democrat wing of the SCOTUS thinks he shouldn't because of course it's a RADICAL reinterpretation of whether the president's power should be completely unchecked or not. But OK, given this dramatic new ruling (and rewriting of hundreds of years of history), in what ways could/should Biden exploit his new powers? For the greater good, of course ;)
