As an avid tinkerer, I've always wanted to build my own Theremin. Not some cheap de-tuned AM radio, not one that sounds like a speak-&-spell cross-bred with R2D2, but an "instrument grade" unit, wholly analog device.

I learned about Theremins back in '94 when I caught the docu, "An Electronic Odyssey" and I've wanted to build one ever since.

Anyone out there have any experience or interest? Would love to have a "build buddy" who I could compare notes with.

this is absolutely happening elsewhere. there's no chance that wealthy, intelligence people are getting the death jab if they can find a way to avoid it.

i did have talks with someone i know about how they have known people who paid to get a fake jab. if someone at my level can find that, wealthier, smarter people can absolutely do that.

my guess is that very few wealthy people are actually getting a real jab.

@Hempressemilym Welcome to Mastodon, the Fediverse, and 13Bells. Hope you're gonna like it here. If you're not familiar with Mastodon, there can be a learning curve getting started. I can assure you, it's entirely worth it.

Feel free to ask if you need any advice or help getting going.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be careful about the Federated feed...some things cant be unseen.

Hang-up your coat and pull up a chair. It's like a party, and there are stories to be told.

Let me paint the picture for you.

It's about 30 minutes after a shooting starts. You see armored vehicles. Cops decked out in military gear are taking cover behind each one.

Over towards the entrance of the school, you see two police officers literally carrying a woman in handcuffs. She has taser leads sticking out of her.

A news crew asks "Is that the shooter?"

One of the officers carrying her proudly says, "No, This Individual Was Interfering With An Active Tactical Operation."

Just then, you hear more gunshots from inside the school. Which doesn't seem too odd, but over in the parking lot, they're having a press conference.

The chief says the while the situation is ongoing, they're not yet engaging the suspect due to concerns of officer safety. They have, however, detained 6 individuals, for interfering in the tactical operation.

This is one of the most heartbreaking things I've seen in recent memory.

One of the first responders, firefighter Ernest “Chip” King, said some of those parents actually made it past the cordons and “were getting in” to the school.

He told The Post there were fathers “breaking out windows, pulling their kids out of windows. It was a terrible, tragic scene.”

I can't move to the Fediverse properly until I reproduce my famous pinned post from the birdsite, so here it is:

P.S.A. To all vintage computer and video game collectors:

Go through your collections and GET THE DAMN BATTERIES OUT!

Now! Don't wait! Seriously, put down the phone, go to your collection and take out all the batteries. Right now! Even if they look "okay" they are NOT SAFE after this much time.

To sum up, history is being re-written a little here.

Before, monkeypox “did not spread easily between people”. Now it does.

Before, monkeypox would “get better on its own without treatment”. Now it won’t.

It’s early days to say that Monkeypox is going to be the “new Covid”, and maybe this rollout will stall and be forgotten in a couple of weeks, but there’s no doubt they are taking some tips from the Covid playbook so far.
Everyone talks about taking all the American guns, but no one talks about protecting school children. No, they are not the same.

Here is Joe Biden, 31 years ago, right after the Rodney King beating, arguing that police should be able to beat a confession out of a suspect.

I can solve the nation's gun violence problem with ONE new law.

This law would apply NOT to the criminal with the gun, but to the politicians and law enforcement that have enabled the spread of guns to violent people.

"It shall be a class 1 felony for any law enforcement officer, prosecutor, district attorney or government official to initiate, endorse, witness, allow or execute a PLEA AGREEMENT that removes or limits the prosecution and mandatory sentencing for ILLEGAL gun possession/use."
