i've always felt clumsy should have a silent b. clumbsy. it's much clumbsier a word and therefor fits better, thematically.

Hnnng, Alaric, I’m trying to sneak through the Salarian Gate to sack the Eternal City of Rome, but I’m dummy thick and the clap of my Visigothic asscheeks keeps alerting the Praetorian Guard.

Everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you?

the most consistent thing across the very long history of conservative ideologies is their obsession with comparing the fall of rome to their own era

"if you're a communist how come you accept donations for your work"

ah yes, receiving compensation for labour, that thing communists famously hate,

Github permissions: I can't push to master but I can push tags and create releases.

As a freelancer, I'm fairly sure I'm the worst client.

I was surprised that NYTimes still manages to detect Chrome Incognito mode (I thought Chrome had fixed that bug), so I dug in. How do they do it? It's actually pretty clever:

- Firefox: indexedDB throws an error in private browsing
- Safari: localStorage is disabled
- Edge/IE: indexedDB is null
- Chrome: estimate the available storage quota, if it's lower than ~125MB, then it's Incognito

trying for #2:
• parents of one child
• constipated people
• scantron test takers rummaging through their bags for the right kind of pencil
• me, the #3 poster on skullsite

using vim to write elisp because vim is a better editor but emacs is a better outliner and soon to be mail reader too

some people claim that well-established straight white dudes' careers are destroyed over "social justice" backlash. not typically -- dudes tend to remain comfortably wealthy

then when a marginalized individual fails to perfectly represent every unique aspect of the human experience, they're subjected to "the same" negative consequences, except, big difference: they actually suffer economic damages

it's hypocrisy, cowardice and bullshit. it's enabled by "progressives" and it has to fucking stop

Hey friends, I don't mind a bit of wit on issue trackers but if that's all you've got to offer: don't.

If you already think being an asshole is cool and is completely justified if you're smart, you're gonna think the smart assholes in TV shows are cool and it's cool that they're assholes. No matter how clearly stated the "intent" of a work of art is, nobody can make you see it if you don't want to.
