Pieces of myself through facts and fiction - A fallible human of the digital era. I bought the ticket, missed the ride, then tripped down the rabbit hole and woke up stranded with you in this strange matrix.

My ancestors stole this continent. I sometimes throw recyclable items in the garbage. Abused children assembled all the electronic devices I use on a daily basis. Same with my Nikes shoes.
