November 2016: A Summary
  • evil kermit the frog
  • #boycotthamilton and the subsequent failure of said boycott
  • devastation over the death of an anthropomorphic race car… 
  • …but equal devastation from an unexplained rise of bee movie memes 
  • a racist soggy cheeto was elected president of these united states
  • fantastic beasts and where to find salvation through the HP fandom
  • “i am forcibly removed from the premises meme” clarifying what is unacceptable for us to do in public spaces 
  • yuri on ice saving us all
  • i accidentally projected a slideshow of my cats to a classroom full of people and it is still haunting me to this day 
  • Gilmore Girls ?!?!? aka in which four words can mess up an entire fandom
  • the samsung galaxy note 7 possibly being even more self-destructive than myself 
  • pokemon: sun and moon 
  • speaking of moons, we also apparently had another supermoon?? 
  • moana <3

In sum: November was a wild ride from start to finish. I’m kind of nervous what December will bring lol omg please save us

I know things are terrible right now but take a look at my cat. She’s fine. She’s content. She doesn’t even know what a President is. All she’s worried about is when I’ll give her breakfast and whether the bed or the sofa is the better sleeping option. No matter what happens all is well in the world of my cat. Even if the world goes to hell, she is happy.

Let’s drop Pokemon Go lures near polling places

Content note: This isn’t really a social skills information post so much as a (nonpartisan) thing I’m planning on doing on voting day in the hopes that it will make voting more pleasant for some people.

I’m planning on dropping Pokemon Go lures on and near some polling places on Election Day. I’m doing this because some of the lines are likely to be long, and I think that voting will be more pleasant if people can catch Pokemon while they wait. 

Especially given that some parents will need to bring their children along. I think waiting in long lines might be easier for a lot of kids if there are good Pokemon around. So I’m going to buy a few lures to try and help with that. 

Most polling places are either on Pokestops or very close to Pokestops. I live within walking distance and subway distance of a lot of polling locations, and I can afford a few lures, so for me, this is pretty doable. Anyone else want to drop lures on Pokestops near polling places?
