Pinned toot

I have a creative project in mind to celebrate those who have had a positive impact on humanity. I'm thinking the likes of Fred Rogers, LeVar Burton, The Wachowskis, Carl Sagan, etc. As a cis white man, my biases may lead me down the wrong path. For example, off-hand I am not able to think of any cis-women to meet this standard, though no doubt there are plenty. Suggestions for well-known people who have profoundly benefited humanity are quite welcome, please.

I absolutely loathe people who "help" me without my consent. If I need help, I will ask. If I didn't ask, odds are you are creating twice the work while patting yourself on the back thinking you're helping.

I hate people who give me grief for having trouble locating their unlit apartment with no numbers, letters, or names on the outside. I'm all for privacy, but don't act like it's my fault for not magically knowing with one is yours. When it's late, I'm not going to knock on every door & upset a bunch of people.

I'll leave the keys in the ignition of my car, but I won't leave my phone unattended.

Guess which one I paid more for.

When you're about to swipe away a notification on your phone, and just as you move your finger down, a new one pops up, everything slides down... and you've just dismissed a notification you haven't read yet.

Was it an important email? Which app did it come from? You'll never know.

Infuriating.

That may be one of the most beautiful full moons I've ever seen. That helped make my evening so much better. ๐Ÿ’›

Pet Peeve - Drivers who signal *after* they start changing lanes or turning.

It would seem those really short 80's shorts are making a comeback & I'm all for it.

I have acquired a magazine about Bob Ross

This is the best picture of our the whole thing that isn't of one of his paintings

the thing about the uk is that everyone claims to be working class when they clearly arent and the thing about america is that everyone claims to be middle class when they clearly arent

Today will require extra hydration & patience.

I can manage the first part.

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

my mother tried dating after she and my father got divorced. it was pretty rocky. she had a string of three or four ugly relationships before finding a good one. but i have to say i'm pretty pleased with Mom Beau No. 5
