    Don't Write That Down: Reflections on Temperature and Ovulation Surveillance, with Birdsong!

    9 DEC 2022 · Birdsong and the sounds of my backyard, plus: In researching for this essay, I searched the Internet for “apple watch temperature sensor murder.” It appears that the pregnancy-forcers have yet to tag anyone with murder charges using the Apple Watch 8’s body temperature sensors as evidence of pregnancy. Yes, planning around one’s menstrual cycle with an accurate prediction from body temperature of when one will be bleeding is progress, but how desirable is this sort of progress? Does it create more freedom than it crushes? Note: it claims to have the option to turn off temperature sampling. In this situation, I am a friend of Ludd.

And what is a fairy tale without a fairy and villains? "Piñata Fairy Tale" has all of that, including an Energy Company that buys corpses--even a half-corpse. Here is my public comment at the Evansville Common Council from March 28, 2022: Since you Common Councilors don't respond well to non-fiction accounts of hardship, ALLOW me to tell you a fairy tale....
