It is very hard to make yourself go to sleep when you’re holding a tiny super computer full of your friends

KonMari Method: Keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy.

Katamari Method: Roll your stuff up in a ball, put it in space

When you specifically pick the quiet wagon of a train for a reason and a guy behind you blares videos with built-in audio turned up to 11 from both his MacBook Pro *and* iPhone… πŸ˜’

One of the best side effects of having subtitles on: often a scene won't have dialog, but suddenly the subs will just say:

Web dev protip: if you're searching for an open-source component, use the keyword "accessible" or "a11y." E.g. "accessible dialog," "accessible carousel," "accessible autocomplete."

you can feel like you aren't safe when you are; you can feel like a good person when you're a monster. find better metrics
